Goodness gracious me - Month 5!!
« on: March 05, 2018, 08:23:17 pm »
Well folks I can’t believe I’m in here and 4 days late to boot. I guess that’s a sign of the time that not smoking is becoming the norm for me and I don’t need to be on the forum as much as I did in the early days. Truth is I’ve been a bit distracted with a whirlwind trip to Belfast (I waved at you from the window @markmcclean1980) on Thursday night for a family funeral - my husband’s aunt. I can’t believe that the plane managed to take off from Gatwick not that it managed to land in crazy crazy winds. I’m not a keen flier so the landing was basically torture for me.  A neighbour picked up that we had a burst water pipe (thankfully external) while we were away.  Arrived back late Sunday night to no running water. On a positive, all fixed now and the we are all clean again!

Woooooopydoooo! Time is a flying isnt it and no turbulence like your flight to Belfast. Its plane sailing isnt it, really unexpected. Youre doing a grand job. Eek sounds a sh1tty return from a sh1tty trip, glad its all sorted now  ;) wow @Enough42 you have just just done your first funeral. Sorry had to rewind there, good for you, thats a biggie so well done getting through that. Thats a test im a bit para about as funerals in my family are lots of booze and lots of smoking. So you give me hope and strength getting through that without a hitch   ;) 125 days you are well over a third to 1 year  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:
Quit Date 6/11/17

Welcome to your new suite. I think you now qualify for quilted toilet roll and proper glasses for the wine  008 and soon I'm hoping you'll have some daffodils sprouting. (When I quit I bought some bulbs in Week 4 which I planted and then the daffodils and tulips came up in March and April).

That must've been quite the flight and what a helpful neighbour you have.

Very well done @Enough42 ,42 sounds years ago now. Your quite right I have lost count because I have stopped counting as I am not a smoker any more, but I always got it wrong anyway, good job @Glasgowgal is a number cruncher. I cant understand how I fell off the wagon after 2 years last time. I have sent a very small box of chocs just to give you a taste. Enjoy your new home. Isn't life much easier.007


Quit 16th November 2017.
Last smoke 21st November 2017.
Trigger word...LEG.

Well done on starting month 5 @Enough42 that's fab.  Isn't it lovely when you stop counting because you just forget you ever used to smoke.  I have a way to go yet but I remember the feeling and that is what keeps me going - well that and the people on this site and their examples/encouragement.  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...........

Wonderful post @Enough42 - although going to a  funeral, the turbulent flight and the burst pipe dont sound very wonderful, but you got through them and it sounds like you are still smiling. 
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.
