Start of month 6!
« on: May 29, 2018, 09:12:59 am »
Hi everyone

So I have made it to this room.  Quite honestly last week I had a couple of huge craves and how weird is that having had hardly any in ages, I was sober too and really wanted a cigarette.  Resisted that urge though so here I am  :) :) :)

This is day 143 and I have not smoked 1426 cigarettes which would have cost me £559.31.  We had a fairly big BBQ at the weekend and out of 35 people only 9 were smokers, I know that including myself there were 7 ex smokers.  Each year it's noticeable that less and less people are smoking which is great news.   :foundbeer: 008 :ninja:
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...........

Congratulations Nicky 007  I had some huge cravings at the 8 months mark so don't think twice about them. They pop up every so often, just to test us  :D

You're nearly at the half way mark to the Penthouse now and I'm sure it will be an easier journey from now on and will go so quickly. xx

Very well done Nicky, half way and not far behind me. When you get to month 7 we will be in there with lots of others all the way to 12 months. Strange I also had huge craves this week, but I put it down to new things we are facing, like the smell of burgers on the BBQ from next door then a sudden waft of ciggy smoke mixed in, it hits you right between the eyes just when you think you've cracked it...well we have, and can dismiss it in a moment. Over 5000 fags not smoked and £2500 saved. Smelling sweet and feeling good and doctors very pleased with me. Keep it going.007
Quit 16th November 2017.
Last smoke 21st November 2017.
Trigger word...LEG.

Well done Nicky.  Those occasional craves sneak up sometimes, keep on ignoring them and they happen less and less.

This morning on facebooks 'On this day' there were two posts about smoking, 2015 one for 1 year no smoking and 2016 for 2 years no smoking, although I read these posts with a little disappointment that I don't now have a four year one to post, seeing them has made me more determined.   :ninja: :ninja:
