A new start

Dear All,

It gives much pleasure in finding and joining a forum such as this.

It has been quite inspirational to read some great stories and the manner all of you have given such great support to each other.

Rather than share the reasons why I will quit (as I'm sure it has been covered many times);

I simply will tell you that by the end of Thursday night, I hope to join you as non-smoker.

Ari

    Dickyboy - stop scaring the chicks off when they're telling each other how much they love each other. They don't need to get a room! Don't drive their love underground!

    I like girls that like girls...................

  • Thanks Mate

    Hi Andy,

    Needed to see those words of wisdom. Feeling a tad nervy at the thought of not smoking any longer at the moment!!!

  • Dear Boudee,

    What can I say? But thank you and all to the others who have passed on a message.

    I am about to go to bed (10.30pm in Australia now)

    And that will be it. I no longer smoke!

  • Mind you, there is plenty of unfinished business yet to do.

    Welcome Ari!

    I hope the quit is going well! If it is tell us all about it! If it isn't, tell us all about it - the folks on here are an AMAZING support group.

    I like your quote. I like it a lot. It reminds me of a phrase a neighbour of mine in Leeds uses often

    "There are plenty of years left untouched."

    ...and with your decision you are sure to have many more to complete your 'unfinished business.'

    Congratulations on your decision.
