20 weeks

I almost missed this one... Had to have it pointed out to me via PM :o

But today is day 143, meaning I passed 20 weeks on Friday and it is 4 months and 3 weeks today. 5 months soon.

Time is going so quickly now!

I feel fine with it too, cravings are a thing of the past and even urges are very few and far between.

Very happy to say that smoking is just something I used to do.... and the old saying IS true.... If I can do it, anyone can. The tougher times do come to an end, and quicker than you think.... and

"none of it is life threatening, while smoking is" (copyright NicFirth)

It's been a while, but... *does his little dance*

  • Great going Stuart and Nic on you Quits,Ithink you both have it beat.:D

  • Thanks to everyone, but especially for this comment...

    I have to say that you both seem to always stand out as 2 people that have really got their quits under control.

    That's the biggest compliment you can give a quitter I think. To be in control is to have won. While none of us will ever be completely free.... we can be in control.

  • To be in control is to have won. While none of us will ever be completely free.... we can be in control.

    For so long we have been controlled by the dreaded nico-demons and now we control them! No wonder it takes a bit of time to get used to this difference. It's a good feeling though!

    Well done to Stuart and Nic on your fantastic achievements!!

    In late summer last year I said exactly the same, and its still an inspiration to me to see people reach the penthouse and beyond.

    Keep doing what you are, keep not smoking and keep posting and you will be the inspiration to those that follow.

    Its a virtuous circle, people, keep it growing and flowing :D

  • eeeee

    feels good doesnt it Stu!! well done you (and me) getting better and better all the time xx

    still with ya!!! all the way:p

  • Dangermousette (Love that name :D ),

    We have all been there... time will pass and simply by not smoking and reading, posting, etc you will become an inspiration to those that follow. As Nic says, I was the same last september/october.... if you look back for some of my early posts you will see that I was simply in awe of the quitters further along. Now it seems I have become "an inspiration" without even trying to be... all I have done is not smoke! If, by walking this road I can encourage others to follow.... then I shall keep coming here and keep not smoking.

    It is a circle that hopefully will continue to get bigger and bigger as the word spreads about the REAL best way to get off this addiction....

    eeeee

    feels good doesnt it Stu!!

    :D

    still with ya!!! all the way:p

    You better be, I don't wanna go to the penthouse on my own... that other lot scares me :eek:

  • well done stu / nic, like every body has said you are both an inspirational to us all,,im a bit behind you on 84 days..but we all get there in the end,,as long as we all keep the faith tony
