Title: One year ---who would have believed it !!
Post by: KitKat on November 17, 2017, 06:40:46 am
I never thought I would be posting in here and saying "it been a whole year since my last cigarette" but here I am doing just that.

I wont say it's been easy and I wont say the battle is over, but I will say that the support I've had from everyone on this forum and Mrs KK has made it a better ride than it could of been.

I woke up this morning like a little boy on Christmas day, yes I can still remember being a little boy lol, but now is the time to look forward to a better future as a non-smoker  008

Thank you all for your friendship,love and support  :hug: :hug:

Play nicely, be kind to each other and have a great day

WOO HOOOOOOOO!!!! Congratulations KK! I wish that I was clever enough to post inspirational and congratulatory pictures but sadly I'm not so you'll just have to accept me doing a little celebratory jig in my kitchen for you.  What a great feeling to wake up like that. Relish in that feeling allllllllll day. Fabulosso! This is soooooo you:

so pleased for you KK, many of us have been looking forward to your one year post. Loads of history for some of us and great for newbies to be reminded that even the most reluctant quitter can succeed beyond their wildest dreams . I too wish I was clever with funny pictures but be assured I am so proud of you  x

@KitKat (posting in year 1).  It's a wonderful feeling isn't it.  :D So glad you have made it mate.  007

Have a great day and congratulations on reaching the Penthouse.  It's well worth the journey :hug:

Dear @KitKat , I'm so over the moon that I've had to resort to poetry:

Ode to Captain Kitkat

The Good Ship Penthouse sails today
And Captain Kitkat leads the way
Proudly on the deck he stands
Gleaming cutlass in his hands
For he has slain foul Nicotine
Most fiendish pirate ever seen
And sent him to a watery grave
His misbegotten gains to save
 A fine Shiraz amongst the plunder
Thanks to Lostie from Down Under
Tea from Tea, and chocolate cake
The best that Skiddaw’s hands could bake
Some Lakeland Fudge from Indigo
A wag of Charlie’s tail and oh,
Everyone both new and old
To welcome Kitkat to the fold
There’s Kat and Max and Una too
Chuffed to bits he made it through
Teffers, Finally, all the clan
Proclaiming Kitkat is The Man
We’ve balloons and caviar, and trifle
To mark our hero’s safe arrival
The ship is riding on the swell
The party’s swinging can’t you tell?
With Captain K we’re safe as houses
Despite the lack of pants and trousers  :)

Seriously, I can't tell you how delighted I am. If it wasn't for you this lovely place wouldn't exist and to see your triumphal arrival home is simply terrific.  :hug: :hug: :hug:

I just want to bounce over and cuddle you and kiss you and probably do jumping  007. I am very proud.

[Now I am literally crying at @Skiddaw 's poem and will be going into this meeting with panda eyes]

Thank you all and yes @Lostie it is a wonderful feeling which I hope in some small way people can share with me.

History for sure @una-g and it's brought a naughty smile to my face when I think back at some of the things I got up to  ;)

@Enough42  you are well on your way now and please excuse me if I have a KK type image of you doing a gig in your kitchen kk  ;D

@Skiddaw you are a gem for sure and a poet laureate  :hug: I will have to print that out and have it framed to remind me of this day

@tea cuddles, kisses and lots of bouncing sounds so much fun  :hug:

Just goes to show if you want something badly enough you can do it because if our KK can do it then anyone can do it.  Bloody well done mate.

You have been a part of all our quits, a constant source of fun and laughter and an essential and much valued part of this online family and there aren't words to properly express how happy for you we all are!

I trust there will be much 008 to celebrate this longed for event, I certainly plan to raise a glass or two later on and I know I'm not the only one.  This quitting lark is no mean feat but YOU DID IT!!!!

Jeez people, thank you all so very much.

Mrs KK and I have planned our evening of fun and frolics which will include more than normal amounts of the red stuff, pizza, I so love pizza, a game of two of "corks" with forfeits (ask @Kat73  about corks) and no doubt some champagne.

First we must go shopping at 6 to get some food stuff (we always go at 6 on a Friday) and while we are out the bread machine will be making the dough for the pizza bases.

Mrs KK will unload shopping while I open the first bottle of the red stuff and then with the shopping put away and the glasses charged we will make the pizza's (well Mrs KK will)

It will for sure be an evening to remember and I will buy the first round.  008

Yes indeedy! Penthouse rules clearly state that with clothing or sans apparel is up to the conscience of the individual church/party-goer. It's a bit like NRT v CT. Anyway, there's a lovely, warm, bubbling jacuzzi if you need to thaw out your bits.  ;)

Very chuffed and delighted indeed.

Carol was always there sitting on my shoulder on the old forum, saying, KK, "No, don't post that" or "delete your last post" or "you may have gone too far this time".

Maybe I should have listen to her on the odd occasion  ;D

Dear Carol, such a star!

Well, if our KK (still don't know how to get the KK thrusting dance banana emoji) is unpeeling I reckon it's definitely going to be a hot tub kind of party - I know we have fabulous central heating here in our palatial pad but hey, if you've got your kit off then the hot tub is a must!  ;D

Nice song choice Little Blue, we surely are!

I always said our forum theme tune should either be Lean on Me by Bill Withers or With A Little Help From My Friends (the Woodstock version by Joe Cocker)

Is there a song you think fits this evening's celebrations @KitKat?

And we know you're always ready for a top up (and that can be read two ways!) ;D

Thank you for having me @KitKat. I had a lovely time but Mr T says I have to come to bed before I fall asleep and give myself a black eye. I'll clean the glasses in the morning.

Here's my cork and my bull - anyone care to hazard a guess why I thought that particular bull was a suitable souvenir of my holiday?!

I think just the drinks side of it @Indigo Warrior . A jug of Buck's Fizz and a jug of Bloody Mary would be fab.  008

I've got some very decent coffee. I think he is going to need at least one packet.

I hope he didn't make too much mischief for Mrs KK

I reckon they may both be paying the price for a well deserved celebration  ;D

Always love a brunch, any chance of a dash of rum in my builders tea?

Good evening people, it is fair to say that we had a great time last night with much frolicking, cork tossing and red stuff drinking and yes Mrs KK and I slept well, very well indeed, but at 7.45 and 8.30 am, we both arose feeling more than ready for what the day had to offer, you see, our bodies are finely tuned, red stuff, absorbing machines.

After a cooked breakfast we headed into town to see a friend of ours who invited us to his wedding in April (invite in the post) great a wedding and not a funeral, that so makes a change.

It's a proper wedding too, not a new age, alternative, gender neutral, naturist, civil type of thingy, but real proper, in a church with a wedding breakfast and speeches at a mega hotel, then dancing afterwards and loads of free red stuff 008

After a light lunch and a glass or two of the red stuff, we found a old film to watch and doze off to.

Tomorrow we will no doubt pop down to the floaty thing with the Sunday papers and have a spot of lunch.

Last night is a night I will remember for a very long time, not least for your friendship, generosity and congratulatory posts for my one year quit.

I am on several forums, mostly of a dubious nature, but this is the one, the only one that offers true friendship, help and support from genuine people who care for each other.

I will be doing another open house at the manor some time in the new year and all will be welcome inc partners, wives, husbands and dogs. I will check the availability of the local hotels for overnight accommodation, we have two in the village.

Finally, thank you all, take care, be naughty, but play nicely and be kind to each other


KK ;)

Hey @KitKat sorry I’m late to the party but a huge congratulations on making it to the penthouse.  You truly are an example to all those who have fought and struggled that it only takes that one time to be successful.  I know you have had a few attempts in the past and, to say that you deserve this success would be an understatement. 

I hope you had a very big, well deserved celebration!  Make sure to leave some wine in the Penthouse for those who are following behind you lol.

Well done  008  :foundbeer:  008 :foundbeer:  008  :foundbeer:

Thanks @Whippetmom and I'm sure you will make the year too.

We are all here to help, guide and encourage those who are thinking about quitting, have already started their quit and those that are well on their journey to one year and and the rest.

Life can be a bitch at times, but together we will all succeed at some point or another, trust me, I know stuff  008
