Hello New Room!

Well here I am in the months 4 and 5 room,

As I sat outside in the sunshine on the 17th July smoking my last ever cigarette I was determined that this time I would succeed. I had the previous day had a moment of clarity in which I decided that I no longer wanted to be a smoker, and that instead of just saying I must give up, I was going to damn well do it.

O.k. so I've been there before, starting off full of conviction, but this time I used this place and it is so true to say that a support group is a great help, along with the educations thing too.

So thanks everyone and keep on not smoking!

    Congratulations.

    Congratulations.

    Actually everyone just being around is a help. I have a rapidly increasing post count, not because I'm Mr Helpful (well not just :p) but because it reinforces the way I see myself i.e. a former smoker if I reply to others posts.

    This is my true quit.

    It will not fail, I will not fail.

    Just a quick note about my new chosen title,

    Many will understand but its from the film 300,

    Imaging us quitters as the Spartans and Nicotine addiction, cigarettes etc as the Persians.

    Now picture yourself as King Leonardis (the guy with the beard) and the Persian messengers are nicodemons.

    Watch this clip (be aware its a wee bit violent)

    Madness, This is Sparta!

    That sums up my attitude to this quit!

  • :) Yay well done you !! you are doing fantastic keep going .

  • Hi Nic

    You are doing incredibly well so congratulations on reaching this milestone.

    Without getting complacent, i think your quit is very solid and you deserve to be at this stage.

    Well Done.

    As for the clip.......

    I prefer the Weegie warcry of

    "This is Glasga!!!":D

  • Bloody well done to you Nic, you have been one of the most positive quitters on this forum (apart from me - ahem)

    You're only four months behind me and what difference will that be in twenty years time??

    Congrats again! :):):)

  • Thanks everyone for your kind words,

    I am really glad I stuck around this time, if I had when I joined in 2006 maybe I'd have been quit a long time back, who knows.

    Stay stopped everyone,

    Nic

  • we're glad you stuck around too - without you, this forum would not be all that it is... you contribute massively to help make it as good as it is.

  • OK very good,

    The 300 Spartans died at the battle of Thermopylae, but their courage inspired fellow Greeks, the following year the Greeks did win battles they fought against the Persians.

  • Keep up the good work Nic, you really seem to be on the right track.

    Cracking flick, 300.

  • Well done me old bubble:D (as in bubble and squeak)

    Keep it up.
