One year ---who would have believed it !!
« on: November 17, 2017, 06:40:46 am »
I never thought I would be posting in here and saying "it been a whole year since my last cigarette" but here I am doing just that.

I wont say it's been easy and I wont say the battle is over, but I will say that the support I've had from everyone on this forum and Mrs KK has made it a better ride than it could of been.

I woke up this morning like a little boy on Christmas day, yes I can still remember being a little boy lol, but now is the time to look forward to a better future as a non-smoker  008

Thank you all for your friendship,love and support  :hug: :hug:

Play nicely, be kind to each other and have a great day

WOO HOOOOOOOO!!!! Congratulations KK! I wish that I was clever enough to post inspirational and congratulatory pictures but sadly I'm not so you'll just have to accept me doing a little celebratory jig in my kitchen for you.  What a great feeling to wake up like that. Relish in that feeling allllllllll day. Fabulosso! This is soooooo you:

so pleased for you KK, many of us have been looking forward to your one year post. Loads of history for some of us and great for newbies to be reminded that even the most reluctant quitter can succeed beyond their wildest dreams . I too wish I was clever with funny pictures but be assured I am so proud of you  x

@KitKat (posting in year 1).  It's a wonderful feeling isn't it.  :D So glad you have made it mate.  007

Have a great day and congratulations on reaching the Penthouse.  It's well worth the journey :hug:

Dear @KitKat , I'm so over the moon that I've had to resort to poetry:

Ode to Captain Kitkat

The Good Ship Penthouse sails today
And Captain Kitkat leads the way
Proudly on the deck he stands
Gleaming cutlass in his hands
For he has slain foul Nicotine
Most fiendish pirate ever seen
And sent him to a watery grave
His misbegotten gains to save
 A fine Shiraz amongst the plunder
Thanks to Lostie from Down Under
Tea from Tea, and chocolate cake
The best that Skiddaw’s hands could bake
Some Lakeland Fudge from Indigo
A wag of Charlie’s tail and oh,
Everyone both new and old
To welcome Kitkat to the fold
There’s Kat and Max and Una too
Chuffed to bits he made it through
Teffers, Finally, all the clan
Proclaiming Kitkat is The Man
We’ve balloons and caviar, and trifle
To mark our hero’s safe arrival
The ship is riding on the swell
The party’s swinging can’t you tell?
With Captain K we’re safe as houses
Despite the lack of pants and trousers  :)

Seriously, I can't tell you how delighted I am. If it wasn't for you this lovely place wouldn't exist and to see your triumphal arrival home is simply terrific.  :hug: :hug: :hug:

I just want to bounce over and cuddle you and kiss you and probably do jumping  007. I am very proud.

[Now I am literally crying at @Skiddaw 's poem and will be going into this meeting with panda eyes]

Thank you all and yes @Lostie it is a wonderful feeling which I hope in some small way people can share with me.

History for sure @una-g and it's brought a naughty smile to my face when I think back at some of the things I got up to  ;)

@Enough42  you are well on your way now and please excuse me if I have a KK type image of you doing a gig in your kitchen kk  ;D

@Skiddaw you are a gem for sure and a poet laureate  :hug: I will have to print that out and have it framed to remind me of this day

@tea cuddles, kisses and lots of bouncing sounds so much fun  :hug:


KK ;)

KK this is a post I never thought I would read.  Cant tell you how pleased I am for you. 

Just goes to show if you want something badly enough you can do it because if our KK can do it then anyone can do it.  Bloody well done mate. 
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Congrats KK. Never doubted you would succeed

I wonder whether that old bat Donna or Kara (was it Kara?) from the old place ever managed a year of not smoking? Somehow I doubt it  006
