I made it!!
« on: June 01, 2016, 10:20:21 am »
I made it through month 4 and now I'm into month 5.  121 days smoke free.  Only 8 months (or 245 days) to the penthouse.  I can't believe it's been 1/3 of a year already.  I will say that I had a tough weekend craving wise, especially on Friday.  But I got through it.  I also got through my CIPD course, I hand in my portfolio today.  As well as that I have paid off a few debts and I'm saving like mad to get rid of the rest - I hope to be completely debt free by the end of the year then the focus becomes a deposit for a house.  I joined the gym this week and plan on making that a regular occurance.  So things are looking up.

Brilliant post Mark.  121 days smoke free, joining a gym, paying off your debts and finishing your CIPD course.  Talk about facing all your demons in one go.  Very well done
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

That is so true! 1/4 so quickly changes to 1/3 and then 1/2. You've got this Mark and you've just got to keep going.....buying a house would be such an achievement.

Crumbs, well done that man!  Sounds to me as though you're having a total life overhaul, and a very successful one at that - way to go!

Excuse my ignorance but what is a CIPD course?
Smoker for 20+ years with a 3 year quit in the middle
Used Champix 16/01/13 to 12/02/13
Last cigarette 8pm 28/01/13
