So I am on the last day of my holiday. Tomorrow I go back to dreary old Belfast.  But at least I will go home the way I arrived... smoke free.  I am very proud of this achievement.  It wasn’t always easy, temptation was everywhere but I did it.  Only got tonight to go but my vape is handy, my spare batteries are charged and my will is strong.  The next goal when I get back to Belfast is Nic free ejuice then off it altogether but I am not in a rush.  I will keep going the way I have been, slow and steady and I will win this race.

As my dad would say @markmcclean1980 “you bloody beauty!”. Such a feat to have gotten through your holiday smoke free. You have every right to be proud of yourself. Well done for sticking another dagger into Mr Nic O’tine’s heart. Your head and heart are in the right place Mark.  You’ve got this.

Exactly what @Enough42 said, dear @markmcclean1980 . I think this one really is The One...  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

I shall hope that for once the sun is shining over Cave Hill and the Harland & Wharf crane for your return. Is it Belfast City or the International?

@markmcclean1980 you need to give yourself a pat on the back for not totally relaxing on your holiday and letting the gremlin back in. That is brilliant news. It will only get easier.

I think Belfast is very exotic. But I do find the dialect very hard to lip read.

I have never heard Belfast described as exotic @tea lol.  I do get what you mean about lip reading tho, we speak so bloody fast that even I find it hard sometimes lol.

Well done on sticking to the vape @markmcclean1980 and I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday, I'm a little jealous as it's so dreary here at the moment.

We have a new irish staff member at work and his accent is lovely and soft, and not too fast. I think scottish (some areas) is quicker and I have no chance keeping up.  :)
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...........

That's FAN-FLIPPIN'-TASTIC hon! :hug:  I'm beyond chuffed to see you've come through your holiday with your quit intact! :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

So that's Christmas/New Year - check, Panto season - check, holiday abroad - check!  You'll be so totally settled into your smokefree life by the time Pride comes around it should be a breeze and then you'll be on the downward stretch towards the Penthouse - woohoo!
Smoker for 20+ years with a 3 year quit in the middle
