@Enough42 this is absolutely amazing. We all know how hard this has been, so a hearty pat on the pack for a job well done.

Thanks very much all, esp for the loo roll @tea.  Definitively can’t be doing without enough loo roll! Now listen tonight is my treat because all of you have been such a magnificient support over the last year that I completely OWE YOU! So I’ve got 10 bottles of St Emilion Grand Cru (that’s just for @KitKat and whoever he wants to share with), loads of Sancerre, Prosecco plus G&Ts and the list goes on.  There will be cured meats, cheeses, olives, general antipasti, dips and bread plus crisps for the unculchured among us. Party starts at 8 so plenty of time to shower (just don’t @KitKat) and get your party clothes on. See you shortly!

And for all of those on the early stages of their quit journey or even just thinking about it I can tell you this:

12 months ago I desperately wanted to stop smoking for the sake of my kids, my marriage (my husband hated it), my bank balance and my life (we all know the health reasons) but the problem was that I really loved smoking. How could I survive without it?what was there to look forward to in the day without smoking? What would I do when I needed thinking time, me time, escape, a breather, some fresh air....the list of “reasons” goes on and on.  Trust me, we are all the same. We are/were addicts. I didn’t realise that until I quit. 

In any event, my last fag was smoked and it was a white knuckle ride for about the first month. The only thing that stopped me from buying fags was the NOPE mantra (Not One Puff Ever), my stubbornesss, a refusal to go through the initial day and the following days of quitting hell that I had already been through and my promise to myself that I would always sleep on it before going to the shop to buy any. And I just kept going.  I kept logging on here and getting support from these fabulous people and just being determined never to have to go through this again.

And then I reinvented myself into a non-smoker.  I exercised, I walked, I ran, I got fresh air, it filled my lungs and I loved it. Now I’m hooked. I also owe massive thanks to our gorgeous poochy pooch Molly who we acquired 17 days after I quit.  She forced me into the outdoors and my romance with the outdoors and exercise began.

It’s tough, bloody tough.  No one said it was going to be easy.  If it was, we would all have quit ages ago. But the joy in not being handcuffed to smoking is palpable. I feel it every time I do anything in my life and I smile my inner smile knowing that the old smoking ball and chain isn’t there to stop me from doing anything.  I’ve realised that I can in fact do anything I put my mind to.  I hadn’t appreciated that before.

But it is definitely worth the hardship.  Trust me, if I can do it then you can too. Just be stubborn. Scream, shout, let it all out. You can do this.

The icing on the cake is.........my kids can’t even remember me as a smoker.

Thank you Forum xx
