Pete – Auckland

I can’t explain what happened on that Sunday four weeks ago. I’m not sure if it’s how you said what you said… I don’t know. I just know that I went from being a smoker to being a non-smoker and it’s awesome! I’ve been to the bar and had a beer or two, with people who smoke, and I’m not even tempted to have a cigarette. I see people smoking and I’m not envious of them, I don’t feel like I want to be around them, and I don’t feel like I should stay away from them. I can’t say I haven’t thought about it, I think about smoking quite a bit, but never in an aggravated or stressed out kind of way. It’s like a thought enters my mind, as it has for the last 19 years, that I’ll just go have a quick smoke. It only takes a split second for me to think “No! I don’t smoke anymore.”
