How we all doing ?
« on: January 05, 2018, 11:40:52 am »
Seems a bit quiet in here , with very little activity .....just wondered how we all are getting on these days on the wonderful road to freedom without the horrible poison sticks ?.

Would be nice for people to just drop in and say hi and let us all know how you are doing so far  ?.


Regards to you all and a Happy New  ( smoke free )  Year

Hi All,
Happy New Year.  I drop in now and again to see how everyone is doing and I can see you're all doing well, be proud of yourselves people  :).
I'm still here, keeping on, day 177 today.
Mu mum is a lifelong smoker and I picked her up the other day to take her shopping.  Without wishing to be awful but when she got in the car the smell of cigarettes was overpowering and actually gave me a headache. I used to smell like that and I'm proud to say I no longer do. So many benefits to not smoking  :)

Day three (how many day threes lol) for me, my failing point.  I have on previous attempts smoked on days 3 and 6 which led to smoking again - first just weekends, then daily! 

I feel like crap with a cold so don't actually want to smoke.  I'm also doing dry January which will help loads.  Quit App is re loaded on phone so that I can see the health benefits each day. I feel ok and craves are minimal but I WILL NOT be complacent about it this time. 
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

Thanks @Skiddaw , I'm feeling hopeful this quit. Day three is almost over and it wasn't that bad.

I like that pic but my Mum insists I look like Wednesday from the Addams family

Blade flyer I think you have been quitv6 and a half years, not 5! Very impressive to have lost a year. I’m still lurking because I remember everyone’s kindness all those years ago.
