NIGALIUS IN DA PENTHOUSE!!!!!
« on: January 09, 2018, 12:34:52 pm »
Well, I never thought I would be typing a message like this.

Today Is a special day for me because I have quit for a year now. I started smoking when I was in the scouts 49 years ago and packed up on 10th January last year. I have used no patches or vapes. I must admit though that if I am waiting at a bus stop and there is someone there smoking I like to stand close to them and get a 'whiff' of the smoke. Yes, I do love the smell but in no way will it get me back to smoking again.

It is thanks to all those on this forum that I have got this far.

I hope you don't mind my moving your post and giving it a different title - a Penthouse arrival is such a special thing to us and we just LOVE to celebrate it!

When time passes and we don't see folk as often as we used to I dither between a) hoping that it's just that they're well established in their quit and don't need the support as much and b) worrying that something's happened and they've fallen off the wagon.  I am so, so, SO pleased to see that you've been quietly plodding on and even more pleased that you've come back to share your success with us.

:foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: YOU DA MAN!!!!!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:
As I remember you're not averse to a glass or two of the red stuff (a man after KK's heart) so let's party hearty to mark your safe arrival at The Penthouse, cheers! 008 008 008

Well done, a year is amazing especially as you smoked for so long.  My Mum has been smoking around that long and keeps half halfheartedly trying to quit, maybe one day.

As well as huge health benefits you must have saved a fortune, so again, very well done you.  007
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...........

I forgot to ask, how have you rewarded yourself?  Hope you bought yourself something special.  You'll be able to buy yourself something every year with all the money you're saving.  :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

My COPD is vastly improved and even right now I was only diagnosed with a mild Bronchitis. Just think what it would have been like had I still been a smoker.

I am such a busy person most days with my photo editing but am now going to only work 4 days a week.

I am going to go now but will send a longer message tonight giving more details. I just wanted to let you know about the quit for a year because without the encouragement I doubt it would have been possible.

Thanks

Nigel

Well done @Nigalius

I will raise a glass or two to toast your achievement, it will be more than two, because a year deserves more than two.

Again, well done  008

WELL DONE @Nigalius !!!  That is the most modest entrance ive seen to the penthouse ha!!  I've read your posts but i didn't realise you were coming up to one year, good for you. As lostie says have you treated yourself or are you doing anything special to mark the occasion???!!!!!!!!

If you are day 365 you are exactly 300 days ahead of me....keep me a seat please  ;)
