So we threw our annual "Merry Thanksmas" party last Saturday. As always, it was awesome. Tons of food, friends and great times.

 

What was different this year is I didn't have to keep leaving the house to walk down the street and have a smoke and then dart straight upstairs when I got back so I could brush my teeth and wash my hands.

 

All I had to do was hang out and enjoy the party.

 

What's super awesome is that not ONCE did I even think about smoking the entire evening. I even had a drink (which I rarely do) and that didn't trigger anything.

 

Just thought I'd share. :)

 

Oh, and just for the record, I can pretty much guarantee I make a better turkey than you. ;)

Sounds like an awesome party Jim, I think I need you to come prove you can make a better turkey than me, so what time can I expect you?  :P

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Sounds like a great night Jim.

I have never cooked a turkey in my life. Dont eat meat myself anyway, but their ugliness puts me off.

It's pretty great being a nonsmoker eh Jim?

 

Glad you had a good party.

This year at our whatever-mas party, I will probably step out with the smokers. Not to smoke myself, but because they always play sucky music. Just to give my ears a break.

I can be around smokers and still not want one but crappy music causes ear cancer.

 

See, I have pledged NOTSSE which stands for "not one taylor swift song ever"
