Hey there folks
First of all, congrats to everyone celebrating or about to celebrate quit anniversaries! It really is an impressive sight seeing so many people who've made it, who started around the same time as me!
It's been a while since I last posted anything. I did say at one point that for me, holding onto this forum is a bit like holding on to the idea of myself as an EX-smoker and I'd like to get on with my life as a NON-smoker.
It's still a few days until I celebrate my own anniversary (Thursday) and I will be back to offer a few thoughts and observations on what I've been through.
In the meantime, the reason for this post is very specific. Some of you might remember that I had a fairly unorthodox quit method. (See the YouTube video in my sig if you need reminding.)
To recap, the psychology behind it was to think of myself not so much as having stopped smoking but as putting off smoking my last cigarette for as long as possible. First half an hour, then an hour, then a morning, then a whole day, week, and so on. Not thinking long-term but putting off my next hit.
A few days back I found my last fag packet literally gathering dust on top of my wardrobe (gawd, it's dusty up there!) having not even thought about it since around Christmas. I want to celebrate my anniversary with a new YouTube video featuring my last fag but I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas?
(I've not taken it out of the box - I expect it's probably completely dried out and is rather fragile.)
Any suggestions for a theme of a follow-up video are extremely welcome - silly, serious, thoughtful or plain barmy - something I can do with a fag packet and an unsmoked fag that might give pause to anyone who watches.
See you on Wednesday with some thoughts for beginners and will someple PLEASE vacuum get the penthouse ready for me to be moving in on Thursday?
