Hi smobered up,
I'm so glad that you decided to join us again. It's great to hear from you!
Cravings can be really tough to deal with. I have had moments when being with a smoker has made my lungs start craving a cigarette. But then I remember all the struggles I went through to quit, struggles I never want to go through again. And when I see people smoking on the street, I actually feel sorry for them. Because let's face it, remember what it was really like. You find yourself skulking around, looking for an alcove where you can step away to have a smoke, no matter what the weather is like. And people walk by and stare at you. And you realize that other people are getting on with their lives while you are wasting yours having a smoke. A smoke which, to make matters even worse, is killing you. How is something as rotten as that something we miss? Go figure.
Hang in there, smobered up. Life is so much better as a non-smoker.
