OMG... I can’t believe it
« on: May 03, 2018, 01:00:21 pm »
Ok, so safe to say I am proud of myself.  I now have 7 full months under my belt (I’m now on day 213) and am into month number 8.  There are still some tough moments but that’s all they are now... moments.  I think this is the one.  I am still vaping but still Nic free and I am not in a huge rush to stop.  I don’t use it as much but would rather kee using it than fall back on old habits.

After all the messing about, I should complete on my house within the next few weeks.  Things have been really slow but at least they are moving in the right direction.

My Aunt had a check up at hospital a few weeks ago.  The cancer has moved into her liver.  Not sure how long she has left but she is making the most of it.

Anyway, onwards and upwards

Hi @markmcclean1980 and well done on 7 months.  Don't worry too much about the vape, it's better than smoking.  I have a nic free vape which I haven't used in ages but it's there if I want it (usually with a drink lol).  007 008

So sorry to hear about your Aunt, very sad.
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!  Third quit lucky 21/11/2018!

I can believe it @markmcclean1980 ,I said 2018 was going to be the magic year we all give up for good. You are  now counting in months instead of days, and are in full control of Nic,you have been trying for so long and are not going back to day one and go through all these rooms again. There are only ladders in front of you now to climb to room 12, your aunt will be proud of you as well.:vader:
Quit 16th November 2017.
Last smoke 21st November 2017.
Trigger word...LEG.

Yay for you @markmcclean1980!! Bloomin brilliant to have 7 months under your belt. Sounds to me like it might be time to organise another holiday to celebrate? Or perhaps the longest ever house purchase will be enough to keep you busy for a while. Glad to finally be in a room with you for more than a couple of days at long last.  My, you are a tidy one aren’t you?

Really well done @markmcclean1980

You are owning this quit now - dont worry about the vape, its better to vape than to smoke a cancer stick and the fact that its zero nicotine is even better.

Sorry to hear about your aunt, hopefully she still has plenty of time left to enjoy the sunshine.

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