6 Years anyone remember me?
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:30:20 am »
I don’t know why, but yesterday I decided to look on the no smoking forum, which isn’t there anymore and found this site.

I nearly cried when I saw familiar names and people who really helped me with my quit journey nearly six years ago on this site.  You know who you are xxx 006

Yes, nearly six years since I quit smoking after nearly 30 years. I never ever thought I would be able to do it but with help from the forum and some willpower I managed it. I know that I will never smoke again and it really is the best decision I ever made.

Hang on in there peeps, it really can be done.  :foundbeer:

I only joined the other forum shortly before it closed, so I don't think I remember your name, but lovely to see another long term quitter here at Just Quit and well done for being six years smoke free.
Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Welcome indeed @Magwillz !! ;D

I remember you from the Old Place. I was (and will always remain) way behind you. It was quitters like you that inspired me on my journey and I'm certain you're still inspiring quitters now. HUGE congratulations on your 6 year anniversary!! Are you going to do anything special to celebrate?  008 008 008 :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

Aww thanks guys, I remember you too.  It really makes me feel quite emotional hearing from you and seeing how well you have done.
Yes, the old site really did have some amazing and inspiring people on it.
I remember how much I relied on all the support from some wonderful people.
Skiddaw, I don’t really celebrate anymore, it’s just become normal after all these years, which is great. I am going on a cruise to the Fjords a few weeks later though, breathing in all that wonderful mountain air.  ;D

If Max remembers you I should as he is a few weeks behind me  ;D  I'll have to admit I'm not sure I do remember you, although at that time I was so wrapped up in my own quit. 

Glad you found us and has bought back fond memories for you.

I remember you , we quit almost the same time. Very pleased to hear you are still a confirmed ex smoker. This is a great site with many of the old members taking part. Such a shame the before site folded. Well done and glad you found us

I remember you very well Una, so glad we made it  :D
I had weaned myself of the BHF site just before all the nonsense started so wasn’t involved in that  ???

No regrets KK, you always had a kind word for anyone in trouble and were  an asset to the old place. Now you are a fabulous quitter and always my favorite! I’m sure Magwillz remembers your unfailing humour and kindness as I do x

Hi @Magwillz
I remember you from the other site.  I know exactly what you mean about almost crying finding the people on this site.  I was exactly the same.  Welcome to your new home  008

really good to read all this...i have quit many times and failed so I really do like to read news from those who keep it up for years and years.  Suspect most long term quitters just get on with their new lives and forget the journey...but please come back every now and then to post.you just don*'t know who you are helping
Quit date 18 Jan 2018.
Cold turkey and Allen Carr's book and forum support
