Somewhat belatedly...
« on: December 10, 2018, 01:42:41 pm »
Whoops!! Sign of the times. Hit my 5 year anniversary on Saturday and had meant to post on the day but it completely slipped my mind! I wouldn't have said that this time 5 years ago, when every second felt like forever.

Not half glad to be here!  ;D 008
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

You are a big bucket of win, congratulations.

Thank you both very kindly  :hug:

@Max414 , it was you, @Kat73 and others like you who gave me the inspiration to carry on. I shall always be grateful to you (and will always be following in the wind of your passage as it were  ;)).

@Not Another Puff , you'll be steaming into the Penthouse before you know it and I promise you faithfully that the time will come when you'll forget your Quitaversary too.... ;D

Thank you all! You're too kind....  :hug: :hug:

I should be raising a glass to all you wonderful forum friends, past and present. Without this lovely community I'm 100% certain I'd not have made 5 days let alone 5 years...  008 ;D

I distinctly remember getting told off for too much bouncing the night of your Penthouse Party and being sent to the naughty step. I was too vicariously excited.  :foundbeer:

I am so pleased for you now and will be vicariously excited when you do your running  010

Dear @una-g , you were (and are) one of my inspirations  :hug:

Yes, it really does feel now as though I never smoked. Funnily enough I was walking behind someone this morning who was smoking and I found it weirdly unpleasant. Five years ago I would have enjoyed a passive smoking moment....  :)

Congratulations on your 5 year quit~er~versary Skiddaw. Thats a massive achievement and you should be feeling very proud of yourself. 
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Well done @Skiddaw five years is amazing, I imagine smoking is a very long distant memory (and not a good one) for you now.  :foundbeer:
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!  New Quit date 21/11/2018
