25 days into this journey, and all the wonderful things I read about are true. Yesterday I ran into a chuckhole though. I swore I would not turn into a nanny-ninny like so many smokers who have quit, and just become obnoxious crusaders, and whiney cretins.
yesterday I was in one of my bosses' car as we drove to a job. He lit a cigarette and BaM - I got nauseous. Literally.
Through the day, from one job to the next, I eventually got over this reaction, but it stunned me that I had such a strong desire to toss my cookies!
I have many friends who smoke and am not willing to lose even one of them. Not willing to smoke again, however, nor am I willing to become that which I so despised while I smoked for 48 years.
