  • Hi Linda

    good to see you back.

    although i am glad to see you have the Allen Carr stuff, i am sorry you had a relapse. I would much rather you didnt need the AC stuff but were still quit.:(

    Never mind. You are back to the right place and i am glad you are trying again.

    All the best linda..

  • Linda l am SO glad to see you back.:D I was really worried about you. I even posted the other day, asking if anyone had heard from you.:( Don't worry about having a little blip, you are not the only one to cave, and my goodness, you have had more reason to, than most. I'm glad to see that you are back on the straight and narrow again. I shall just have to keep a closer watch on you this time. TEE HEE.

    Loads of love Josie XXX

  • Good to see you get straight back to it.

    All the best

  • Linda. You're not stupid, you're human like us all.

    Dont beat yourself up, just jump back on as you have with a positive attitude.

    Although if you do want beating up a little, give me a call! :D

  • So pleased to hear you're having another go Linda! Sometimes when the shit happens it's just easier to smoke cos our brains are too full of the shit to cope with not smoking too!!

    I'd love to be your quit buddy - am back on the wonderdrug champix for the 3rd time (quit 9months last year up to mid march this year, then 9 days, then just dun 3 weeks 2 days, had 2 weeks relapse) but I'll be a day or two behind as got to let the champix take effect which, incidentally folks, seems to happen quicker if you've had champix in the past. I'm fairly sure it modifies the brain forever!!

    Bill G and Mojo-Jojo how are you both doing??

  • Thanl you all.

    Feel at home with all my quit mates wishing me well thank you each and everyone of you. to be honrst to day have been good be glad to get the first week out the way. Love Linda xxx

  • Hi Linda Im so sorry to hear you had a blip. I havent been around lately so didnt know.

    I am pleased to see you have got right back up and quitting again xx

  • Hello Mick and welcome to the forum.

  • Hi Mick

    well done on deciding to quit.

    You will get good support on here from many people at all stages of quitting.

    It might be a good idea to start your own thread and that way more people may see your post. :)

  • Linda, you are not a fool, stupid yes, but not a fool !:eek:

    I don't have to say any more, do I?:rolleyes:

    Welcome back and make sure it's for good this time ok? :p

    (((Hugs))) :)

  • Team brewing???

    Hi Pammy, Linda,

    Sorry to hear you're both at the start again...but glad to because you can be my new buddies!!

    I have diddled about with it after falling off the wagon the evening before I got married! It was odd...it was as if I'd already decided to do it. Pint of beer, early evening sun, out by the c-a-n-a-l**** with an old mate who stops and starts smoking and had just started again...and off I went. For about a week. Then stopped and had the odd one then stopped...you know how it can be.

    This time I used the fact of being back in Algeria to stop again..no aids, just stopped. It's been really easy. I did have about 1/2 a cig around 10 days ago, so we can more or less say we're starting at the same time.

    I have been reading the thread about psychological hang-ups..." Scarey thinking I'll never smoke another" etc. That's not it for me, but I'm sure the key to a lasting quit is to get really clear that there are NO advantages to smoking...you've just been convincing yourself (correction..WE've just been convincing ourselves) there ARE.. for a long long time...Takes a while to get back to the beginning of the brainwashing.

    I don't care much for AC's style and aggresive approach, but I have to say he was right..the 'willpower' method does not work. You've got to get right about there being nothing to give up before you can finally let it alone.

    So,....anyone for a team???:D

    Bill X

  • Hi Bill, congrats on the wedding- hope you'll both be very happy and your partner must be so pleased you've quit the smokes again!:D

  • Sorry to hear about the lapse's Linda and Bill, good to see you straight back on the wagon. We've all been there, multiple times no doubt, and it'll only help in the long run to cement your next (and last) quit.

    Hi Pammy and Linda,

    Can't think of anything clever, so I just thought of NOPE..and let's stick to it.

    I never had one of those signatures either, but i reckon I'll remember.

    Let's do it this time...Anyone else for tennis?

    Bill:)

  • Sorry to hear that Linda, you have been nothing but supportive to others during their quits and i hope you get it now you need it.

    No more relapses ok? ;):)

  • Hi Bill! NOPE sounds good to me.
