Stressed out and still didn't touch a smoke

Hi Everyone

A few days ago a close friend of mine had a massive stroke.  He is only 49.  Today they placed him in an induced coma so that he would be ready to fly to Newcastle Hospital (we are in Lismore).  Not sure how long they will keep him down there and I have been assisting his wife with their 7 year old boy.  A few times I thought, if only I had a smoke........and then I would say to myself.....would you stop at one?  Glad I didn't even try and I am so proud of myself as in the past I would not have hesitated when something like this happened as I would say well I needed the smoke to get over the stress.  Just goes to show it is all in the mind.  8weeks and still smoke free.
