Today I Have Been Quit 8 Months


Hi Boys and Girls

Yep Eight whole Months 242 days without a fag

Feeling great and very proud of myself at the moment

I have saved £1,657.50 by not smoking

6,049 cigarettes.

I have saved 3 Weeks and 5 minutes of my life.

My Quit Date: 17/11/08 08

When I started this quit I wondered if I would ever do it having tried so many times before

But with the help and support of the people on this forum I have done it

Love to you all

Hi Margaret,

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on passing the 8 month milestone.

You have been a massive support to so many on this forum and such an inspiration.

Somehow, I still can't quite catch you up - but Ill keep on trying.:D


Hi Deke :D

Thankyou for your kind words

So you can't quite catch me huh but you'll keep trying

I think either you have to run a bit faster or I better slow dow a bit [no way] but after all I had a head start on you

I'll wait for you at the penthouse though OK so you can catch up

Well done Margareth.

Well done for reaching 8 months and well done for continuing to spread the education message. When I first arrived on this board that method was frowned upon. Thanks to people like you it is reaching everyone who graces these boards.

Today Margaret you deserve a tip of my hat ;)

Hi Tomatpots :D

Thankyou for the message and also for all the help and encouragement you and many others on this forum gave me I know that without you all I wouldn't be where I am today

I can't understand why the education way was frowned on as it makes so much sense to learn all you can

I for one will continue to spread this message for as long as anyone will listen to me


Marg xxxxxxxxxxx

Congratulations Margareth on a big 8 months you are 2/3rds of the way to the proverbial penthouse well done. :)

At just 10 days into quitting, it's people like you who are giving me that extra bit of inspiration and determination to succeed. Congratulations. x

Hi Chrissie :D

Thanks for that and the song but no sun here today in fact it's chucking it down here at the moment arghhhhhhh

I keep saying I should cut down on the amount of time I spend on here but it never happens :D

Hi Michael :D

Thankyou yep 2/3rds of the way there now and it just gets better all the time

Hi Zolat :D

Thankyou for that if I can help by giving you that little bit extra omph you may need along the way then I'm happy to do so

Love and a Hug for you all

Marg xxxxxxxxx

Hi Chrissie :D

Yeah I know you can but a little bit of sunshine would be nice as well don't you think

OK OK I know can't have everything but why not is what I want to know

If this lovely hairdo Carol gave me gets ruined in this weather I shall have a huge tantrum and chuck all my toys out of the pram followed by blankets etc and the dummy so there

WOW just got a glimpse of sun then oppppps it's gone again

Way to go marg!

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant-well done!

Your stats are quite scarey actually marg-6000+ cigarettes not smoked-where did you ever find the time?

More importantly what are you doing with that regained time now? Oh-hold on-helping and supporting others on here-how unselfish can you get?

Be proud marg-not just on what you have achieved on your own quit but also on the help and support you have given others-including me.
