bag the fag!

the latest challenge from the blog this ladies. 

Have you ever had to give anything up that was difficult?

Yes, you guessed it- smoking! I always thought I looked like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's but then I realised I didn't and I would end up like the below..... I smoked for almost 15 glorious years and god how I miss it. I so so loved it and I was very good at it too, if you have never smoked you will never fully understand why it is so hard to kick the habit once and for all. 
It isn't just about the physical act of inhaling filthy dangerous chemicals into your body, it is about smoko breaks, comraderie with other smokers at partys and clubs, telling others 'ah you could get hit by a bus tomorrow' excuses, having fun memories of nightclubbing and backpacking/travelling in your youth that you associate with smoking, THAT is the hardest to kick. ( but I am so so so glad I did!)

OMG!!! I know 100% what you mean! I blogged about giving up smoking too! And that is what I miss the most, esp when with the other group of friends who all smoke...sucked to be left by myself for a lot of my own hens night coz they were all out smoking and it was the middle of winter!
The one ciggerette I miss the most was the one straight after a huge meal...for some reason I always found that one the most satisfying!
Having said that I am so so glad I gave up, I was a slave to those things and they were probably killing me!

Haha, it's funny when you think about how you really appear, and that you're not really like in the movies. Happens to me ALL the time!!

Oh I know what you mean! Smoking's not just a habit - its a lifestyle and that's why I think it took me 3 years to stop craving it.
