My 6 Months

Celebrating 6 months today! Not the penthouse anymore though :rolleyes: :p

The constant anger and bad moods are over by now, and I feel I can go back to being the Real Me again, at last :) I'm having a really tough time at work these days to the point I'm actively seeking another job - but still, no more having to focus on staying quit, smoking is never an option, hardly ever a thought, and when it does cross my mind it'll last 10 seconds tops. The recurring thought is of liberation, happiness and pride, no matter how crappy my life can seem to be at the mo :cool:

I quit thanks to myself but I managed to stay quit thanks to the lovely people in this forum, esp Boudee, Lindaspicer, NS4M, Buffy, Steveh, Barney, Poppyfairy, Sweet, Poskit, hbav, Kazza, Dossydo, Flippy, hbav, I see them as my journey buddies, even at different stages of the quit, and they were always there for everyone who needed them - the warmest thanks from the bottom of my heart x x x x x x

    Congrats yourself! :) x

  • francesca !

    Francesca, I just wanted to give you a quick personal tag (if that's ok) n say that there have been plenty of challenging times for me over the last 7 months - but that you're one of the most positive and encouraging members that I ever saw - n I wanted you to know how much you helped me!

    Well done on your continued sucess - and keep bringing the newbies into the oldies section !

    It's mint that you live in Italy ! It shows the (apparent) unity of the Union.

    Regardless of what we think of that, we know what you are going through and are committed to help !

    Thanks for the encouraging words !

    Gx:D

    Aww I am so touched by your words, you have no idea :o

    Thank you for sharing this with me, for taking the time to dedicate to me such a sweet post, I was in quite a forgettable mood until a few minutes ago but now you've just cheered me up like you wouldn't believe :)

  • Fran, I'm late too but that's normal for me! I think you should especially proud of yourself - you've been through some crap but you're so determined and so focussed that nothing will deflect you from your aim and that, my friend is worthy of RESPECT.

    Complimenti. Hai fatto veramente bene, so che continuerai a fare bene.
