Cooker is clean again

Well kept myself busy..............cleaned the cooker and the kitchen from top to bottom.............had to put sunglasses on as the shine was blinding me :D

Got chicken in black bean sauce cooking away for tea and sultanas soaking in tea to make a tea loaf after tea so I can stuff my face with it tonight :D

Don't worry chrissie and marg i'll send you a warm bit when it comes out the oven............make your cuppa for around 9pm.

Doing fine ...a lot better than I thought I would be.....think I got back quick enough before I had done too much damage.

Keep getting a feeling of deja vu............:D

  • What a feeling of empowerment you have there carol!.

    The cooker especially, we abuse them like crazy and we always say.. i'll clean that soon, but sounds like you gave it the clean it so needed.. and indeed the rest of the kitchen too :)

    Nice one :)

    My thing is gardening, but wiht all the rain lately, its not been giving me the escape i need. Thank god for the internet :)

  • Hi Carol :D

    I can hardly wait my mouth is watering already mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    You have been busy if you have any energy left you can come here and clean mine for me :D

    Well done you're doing great

    Love

  • Hi Jim :D

    Have you ever stopped to think that maybe we do it for a bit of fun to cheer up newbies and others who are struggling

    Maybe you didn't struggle but most of us did at some point

    I'm sure we're all aware of what this forum is here for but a bit of fun along the way doesn't hurt any of us

    No offense but!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you don't have to read it

    Marg xxxxxxxxxx

  • OK Jim have it your way I can't be bothered anymore

  • Hi Chrissie :)

    I'm sorry to hear you're close to loosing your quit because of this nonsense going on

    Please try not to let him get to you

    Love and a Hug

    Marg xxxxxxxxxxx

  • Me to Marg

    I have been close to loosing my quit because of him before but not this close.

    Good luck with your quit everyone

    Chrissie x

    Me too. I'm sorry if anyone found my cleaning cooker thread utter crap. I do take my quit very seriously but my way of dealing with it is to be as light hearted as possible. That is why I chose to join this forum as people seemed to be having a laugh. I really struggled today and didn't see anything wrong in leaving a post saying I had managed to not have a fag by cleaning and keeping busy. I have had a really bad time recently and most of the people on here have been a great support to me.

    But if this is BB's way of supporting people then I'm sorry but it doesn't work.

  • I personally found your thread funny and it made me smile. It clearly stated what it was about, so if I didn't want to read it, that was my choice.

    I love reading what everyone is up to and how they handle things, on their various days. That might make me sad, but.... so what. It works for me.

    It might be an idea if someone is just wanting advice that they put the title on their thread as HELP WANTED. That way it would be clear straight away.

    Keep up the posts. :)

  • Hi Carol :D

    I'm sorry you had a struggle today but knew and understood this thread it's a pity others aren't so happy about it

    I also think a bit of fun like this is fine just hang in there OK

    Love

  • Me too carol my mouth was watering thinking of a nice bit of warm cake. HEHE You carry on hun thats what we do rant and rave when ever we need. If people dont want to read it there is always the ignore button. xxxxxx

  • I cannot believe what a horrible reply that was by Jim or Bibleblack or whatever. As a 'Newbie' I find doing such things as cleaning the oven helps as it takes your mind off the smoke. I wonder what he'd think of me and my fiance cleaning said oven after I miscarried 4 years ago. It helped us get through a really bad moment which is exactly what a 'crave' is. Sorry if this offends anyone but what the hey. You keep on posting chick and the rest of us will continue to support you.

    Love n Light ~xXx~

  • Chill out!

    Bible Black (or Jim)

    Hi I just noticed your comments etc.

    I'd just like to say that I wouldn't have been able to give up without this forum, and it was precisely the "small talk" that got me through. Surely people should be able to say what they want to say - especially at such a tough time in their lives?

    All we chat about here is our daily lives and giving up - these are subjects which can often bore the non smokers in our lives so it's lovely to come here and see how my fellow quitters are doing.

    If you don't like what's being posted here then fair enough - but what do you think we should be saying? And what's wrong with people saying what they want to say?

    margareth for instance helped me out so much in my first couple of days of quitting so she deserves lots of respect. I didn't see you helping people out every day of the week mate...

    Thank you for understanding what my post was about. I am so sorry for your loss and it is strange how we deal with things. When my mum died I just cleaned and cleaned and then cleaned things that I had just cleaned. :)

    I thought the whole point of a stopping smoking forum was for people that were trying to stop smoking to get together and support each other. Now call me stupid (some do :)) but surely we will all cope and deal with stopping in different ways. If spouting crap works for someone then hey it works spout away. Surely the whole point is that we support each other which thankfully most of us do.

  • my view - for what it's worth.

    I have absolutely no wish to drag this all up again, but just wanted to put my thoughts down.

    I have no objection to people posting what they like, where they like. Follow the forum guidelines and rules as to permitted behaviour and it's all okay with me.

    If I see stuff that doesn't interest me, I won't necessarily read it. And, if i do, I do not necessarily feel a need to respond. If I want to respond, I will.

    There are a good many of us who post on this forum with stuff that could be deemed as being not exactly relevant to quitting smoking. Some may consider this a waste of space on the forum, or indeed the internet. As some of you will no doubt know, I am regularly active on the Name That threads. I do post elsewhere, but I admit that as my quit has gone on I have felt the need to do that less and less. I fully expect that over time my presence on the forum will diminish somewhat. Such is the general nature of these things. Many people who only post occasionally now used to be frequent and regular contributors. Others continue to post regularly. Long may they do so if that is what they wish.

    In a way the Name That threads have been integral to my quit. Perhaps i have replaced one addiction with another! But as I became "hooked" on the Name Thats I realised that were I to smoke I would find it difficult to log on here and join in the banter and offer my sometimes pathetically simple Film and Tune clues. And I would have missed that enormously. So it helped stiffen my resolve!

    In my view I don't think the tone of some of the threads and posts and responses I have seen recently reflect the general positivity of this forum. I don't think anyone has covered themselves in glory. So I'm hoping it will all settle down and we can all get back to the things we have in common that we can feel good about - continuing our efforts to combat a foul damaging addiction. And... wittering on about whatever we need to; posting quiz clues; supporting new quitters; congratulating milestone achievers; or whatever it is that helps us to get through it.

  • Hi to all,

    I agree with you all and i think BB has a bad temper and can do as he pleases with it!. ( but not smoke)

    I too love to hear about how peeps get over thier day when craving and having a giggle when a giggle is needed!.

    Happy backy free day to all

    P.S, I'll be doing my windows tonight

  • I want to hear about cookers, about tidying houses, anything really that helps anyone get through their awkward days.. they help.

    Might use some of them methods myself.
