OMG 1st smokefree Christmas/NewYear nearly 20 Years!!!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I was worried that it might prove a bit too challenging for me, especially when I got some rather pricey Cuban cigars as a prezzie! (Guess that's my fault for not telling the family I'm quit). But made it to the end of what must be the first completely smoke free one, in nearly 2 decades!!!!

Well one more day and then into week 4.... Starting to be able to concentrate more now and not finding myself constantly opening the fridge door to see what I can nibble on ;)

All the best for 2008 to you all

    Spent the first few days reading all your posts before registering on day 3-4 for some much needed help LOL!! Last week was a bit of ping ponging round the country to see all the family, but back now ;). Can't promise to meet the dizzy hights of 1000+ posts but I'll do my best -x-

    Yes all the christmas traveling and all, am shattered, nice to get home albeit soo much washing and organising to catch up on :o at least it's a great distraction from smoking!!

  • Thankyou Steve :)

  • Hi John

    I too have just had my 1st smoke free christmas and new year for 17 yrs :eek: !

    It was so nice not huddling in a freezing doorway with all the others!

    Good luck and a great big well done :D:D


  • COOL!!! My very own quitting buddy :D... I was beginning to think I was the only one who quit around the 10th of December and approaching that 1st Month mark. Well done too Nix!!!!

    I knew Christmas/New Year would have been the biggest test for me from the social side of not smoking, but at the same time it helped as I was not working, and I was always finding myself reaching for the pack when I was under the cosh for deadlines/work stress etc...

    Not being able to focus at the initial part of quitting would have been a complete nightmare for me job-wise.

    Keep it going the 14th Jan isn’t far away now and that’s a huge milestone under both our belts :)
