Day 66
« on: February 05, 2018, 05:52:12 pm »
Hi guys! Sorry not posted often, my partner gave birth to our baby a couple of weeks ago and things have been hectic!

I’m just into month three which feels really good. I’m still taking a low dose of Champix but my plan is to start to reduce it further in a couple of weeks ( I have plenty of tablets left as I’ve been taking less than the prescribed dose).

Generally feeling ok although i can’t wait for spring to arrive as all the dark at this time of year really gets me down.

Nick

Oh how totally wonderful @Nick_82 !! HUGE congratulations  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: 008 008 008 both on the arrival of Baby Nick and on your splendid quit (kicks on Day 66 and probably rather a lot of nappy changing too I would think  :))/

What is Baby Nick actually called?

Ahhhhhh massive congratulations @Nick_82! You dark horse you, you kept that one quiet didn’t you! What better incentive to quit for good than a newborn baby in the house. Hope you are managing to stay remotely sane and get some tiny little bit of sleep. Yep it’s dark and it’s cold outside.  How nice it is to be a non-smoker who can stay inside where it’s dry and warm!!!!

Congrats on the new baby @Nick_82
And well done on 66 days.  You are a third of the way to a century.  And you will be able to play with bubs when he/she??? is a bit older without getting out of breath.  Well done!!!

Congratulations to you and yours on the new arrival, what lovely news.

Day 66, that's great, well done.  Sometimes it's still light when I leave work, so Spring can't be far away.
Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Congratulations on new baby and 66 days, both wonderful news  008
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 for all the lovely messages guys. The baby is a he and he’s called Otis. He’s amazing!

He’s a perfect  reason not to start smoking again but I think this quit is going to stick because I’ve had enough and I don’t want to have the stress of continually trying to stop smoking or the guilt  about it killing me and the impact that would have on people I care about. I need to do this because I want it, not for others. I know that sounds incredibly selfish but I don’t want to feel like I’m giving something up but that I’ve gained something.

I noticed the bulbs are coming up in the garden today, spring is coming!

Nick

Good for you @Nick_82. I’ve got a feeling you’ll be going all the way without a blip.  Your head sounds like it’s in the right place and what better motivation than your own personal drive and little Otis! Congratulations!

Oh that's lovely @Nick_82 . Is Otis after Otis Redding?

Many congratulations on baby Otis who will never know his daddy as a smoker as you are firmly in the land of non smokers now.  very well done.
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.
