Saw my cousin yesterday, one of few family members Ive seen since I quit smoking and drinking. We use to drink, and smoke heavily together. Partying really. We have been close since our 20's. We are now in our mid 50's and Ive quit smoking and drinking. She has not. It was nice to see her, but the urging to celebrate the easing of lockdown was not enough to get me to go drinking or smoking with her again. She accepted that I have changed. Ive realised that Im going to face alot more challenges after isolation. Going back to the social events, friends and families who were a part of my drinking and smoking behaviours. Isolation made it easier to quit. I need to make more preparations. Any tips for socialising while quit would be appreciated.
