A rather wonderful de ja vu moment
« on: November 07, 2017, 05:49:03 pm »
Passing through a local shopping mall earlier I came across my former quit-smoking nurse (the NHS quit smoking service has a stall there though it's been absent for some time). She was dealing with someone but I briefly stopped to say hello. She remembered me and asked me how long it had been since I quit. I told her it's nearly four years now (anniversary is beginning of December) and the woman with her, who had just completed her first week, commented on what an inspiration that was. I congratulated her on her week anniversary and left them to it but as I walked away I remembered that exactly the same thing had happened to me when I was with the nurse at the end of Week One- a man stopped to say hello to the nurse and he too was on the point of celebrating his fourth anniversary. I can remember exactly how it made me feel (I was determined that one day, that would be me) and suddenly it was!  ;D
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

That's lovely @Skiddaw just a passing comment of inspiration being passed on to the next generation of quitters.
