How did you do it? When I know I'm going out I'll buy a pack that morning to save me the hassle of caving later that night and having to leave the pub and find a shop. Sober I don't even think about smoking.
I think you're right there about the romantic idea that smoking and drinking are lovely things together.A bit of failing until it stuck, to be honest. Also coming to the realisation that it was such a social anxiety trigger for me when drinking/out kind of changed my mindframe. I was convinced I just loved smoking when drinking, but I kind of let that romantic idea go. I don't think about smoking at ALL when I'm sober, it kind of grosses me out now, but when I'm drinking I still get tempted every once in a while. Once or twice this year I've gone so far as to take a drag and felt immediately sick. I think, honestly, if you minimize the drink while you're trying t oget through the first 2-3 months, it helps, then you feel more like you've got something to lose.
Also, I've said this to my mam, who's tried and failed SO many times. I really think that the main thing you need to quit for good is the belief that you will NEVER smoke again, in ay circumstances. So not a "I'll quit but if I have the odd one drinking so be it" or "hopefully ill keep going for as long as i can etc.". You have to FULLY believe you're never smoking again under any cirumstances. I know that crossing into that mentality is what did it for me.

Also I thought that the Juul was shite. I stopped using it after 2 months although my girlfriend still uses it and also smokes when drinking
The leftover box is a fucking killer.I mean listen, also in the greater scheme of things the pair of you are already doing pretty well just smoking when drinking. I had the idea that if I could do that I'd have kept going, for a while, but it always started taht way then slipped into smoking the leftover box from saturday when monday was rough, then buying another box etc.
