Hello fireball,
Thank you for sharing your experience, I believe others benefit from it as they probably thinking and feeling the same thing.  Like they say old habits hard yet they will leave. 
So happy for you that you did well and are aware. 
Have a wonderful day!

Yes it is that time of year for getting outdoors and the odd bonfire. So yesterday I was invited down to the neughbours place for the fire and neighbourhood get together. Knowing full well that everyone that was going to be there would be a smoker. Well it was just like old times. I had to fight the urge to light up but I managed to do it. Just as it always happens as the night wore on people began to run out of cigarettes. One by one the packs ran out and the smokers became nervous wondering where their next smoke was going to come from. That's when my good friend pulled out a brand new pack and tore the wrapping off of it. I even felt a wave of relief pour over me just like I would have back in the day when I was smoking. It's funny how some things are slow to leave you head. Anyhow I am still smoke free but I think I will take my time before I attend another bonfire lol 😊
