Well I don't mind if I do
« on: February 01, 2018, 06:40:48 am »
First of the month and a room upgrade is in order for me.  Wow I've made it to month 4! I'm loving how I'm feeling.  I feel like I could take on the world and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.  My breathing is great, I've started exercising, I'm eating healthily, I have noticeably more time on my hands and most importantly I'm not constantly thinking about when/how I can manage to have a cigarette. Thank you to all of you lovely people who have and are continuing to help and support me. I owe you all so much. Oh look, there's even a complimentary basket of fruit and a bottle of white wine chilling in the fridge because it's Thirsty Thursday.....although I'm really going to try not to drink tonight and save it for Friday.

Well done @Enough42 on three months (and a shiny new room), that's great.  You sound so confident and happy too, hope I will feel as good when I get there.  Well done on the exercise too, the most I have been doing is walking at the moment but maybe when it's warmer I will get the bike out  :)
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...........

Well done @Enough42 and welcome to the month 4 room.  If you are saving the wine for tomorrow we can have a welcome drink for you and a farewell drink for me as tomorrow is my last day in the room before I leave it in your very capable hands.

@Enough42 , 4 months is a FANTASTIC achievement- a whole third of the way to the Penthouse!! You're going to make it you know- there's definitely no retreating now. Yes, there'll probably be a few sticky moments ahead but you're through the worst of it and it's full steam ahead for you.  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :D 007 008

Massive congratulations on sailing through to the 4 month room.

I can see by this evening its going to get messy in this room.   Who is on the cleaning up rota.  Its definitely not me.

After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Check you out, motoring on into your FOURTH MONTH!!!!!!  What's even more impressive in many ways is how far you've come mentally in your quit.  Getting your headspace free from that slavery mentality is something that happens at different times for different quitters so to hear (ok, read) you and feel the sense of liberty behind those words is FAN-FLIPPIN'-TASTIC!!!!!!

You have sooooo got this @Enough42, just keep powering on through  :hug:

We'd better put more wine in that fridge eh? Best make it a case as you'll have company soon enough. Now I did have some prosecco and raspberry boiled sweets here somewhere so I'll drop some of them off too.

Yes @Kat73 I do certainly feel like I had a lot of brain battles in the early days (the first month really) with this quit and I think I may have faced most of my demons then so to speak as I’m on easy street right now and feel like I’m in cruise control all the way to the penthouse but I still have my eyes sharply on the road to beware of other drivers, traffic and pot holes!
