Time to start planning a new quit...

Hi All,

Well I have been a bit busy recently and have let my no smoking campaign suffer, but I now have another very good reason to quit.

As most of you know I have been expecting the arrival of my daughter and she has finally arrived. However she is currently in hospital being treated for "Group B Strep", but should be home tonight if she is given the all clear.

If not it looks like it might just be me and my son for Xmas as my wife and daughter may have to stay in for a further 14 days... :(

Anyhow for all those who are interested:

Weight: 8 lb 1 oz

DOB: 11th Dec 2007 @ 1:39am

Name: Emma


So I am thinking that I will have another go at quitting from when I get in my car to go and collect them from hospital to bring them home. Which could be today... :D

congrats on your new baby!! what a lovely christmas present.

i am new to the forum and new to quitting- know how you feel about starting over...i had just done nearly 7 days and stupidly started again last night.

why oh why? what was i thinking?

reading the messages on this site has made me refocus and so

going to dust myself off and commit to quitting for good this time.

off to put remaining ciggs in the bin.

That's great news Lola, congrats to you for finding the necessary determination again! You wouldn't even be reading the forum anymore if all you really wanted to do was smoke in peace and forget about it all ;) Also, in my opinion you just had a blip, not sure you should consider it day 1 again tomorrow - unless it makes you feel better, of course, like let's start it all over again with an even more positive attitude this time :) Be confident, we are always stronger than we think! I'm looking forward to seeing your update posts day by day :)
