Room for a little one?

Can you believe it....I forgot my 1 year anniversary.

My lovely husband didn't though and came home with new perfume as a treat yesterday.

I always thought I would have something really profound to offer at this point but I don't. All I can say is just do it, you have nothing to loose by trying. The fear of failure kept me from thinking about it for so long.

I'll try and have a think if I can add to that whilst I browse if any of my quitters from around the same time have been back to celebrate :D:D

  • Well done, Forced2Quit :) Big huge CONGRATULATIONS on one year and therefore gaining entrance into much talked about Penthouse! I hear their jaccuzzi there is fab ;) Can't believe you forgot but then that is just proof that you've nipped this! Enjoy the Penthouse :)

  • Bloody well done!!! Another one through the gateway!

  • Thanks.

    I've had a think about what else has changed.

    Apparently I'm calmer and less argumentative at work. My boss is very pleased, as is my husband, and I'm sure BibleBlack will attest to my previous demeanour :D

    I find it easier to concentrate on tasks.

    I cannot claim that my food tastes any better, sorry.

    I run in the gym 5km a day.

    I did not loose any more of the weight in my signature, however I have lost inches due to my workout, with my waist (belly) shrinking by a massive 10 inches since last Christmas.

    I am richer, but not by that much as we used to stockpile from Spain every six months. I also assume I don't smell, but I don't think my smoking husband smells that bad.

    I'll keep thinking....:confused::rolleyes:

  • Well done you!

    Hiya F2Q

    Was worried about you as hadn't seen you around for a while but I'm delighted you're celebrating your penthouse pass as well.

    Like you, I find it difficult to verbalise the differences between me pre and post quitting but I just know I'm a different person now (in a good way) and have no regrets whatsoever except that I didn't stop sooner.

    Best of luck with making it 2 years.

  • Good to hear from you and great big Congratulations on your whole year, magic.

  • Congrats to you, I remember vividly your first few posts.... you really weren't sure about your quit at all and you were confused as to your next step.

    Your story more than almost any I can think of re-enforces the value of this forum - if anyone is in any doubt about what this place has to offer, you could do a lot worse that search through the posts from "forcedtoquit".

    Bloody well done to you, richly deserved - welcome to the Penthouse! :D

    My gawd F2Q....how great are you. Well done for getting to 12 months. You were so resistant to stopping smoking and 'forced to quit' in such dramatic circumstances. Really absolutely amazed at you...both then and more so now.

    Many times I go out cycling the paths 'round here I imagine that I'm going to bump into you. But that's plainly silly since we don't have user IDs on our bikes or over our heads. So, what I'm gonna do is post a pic* of me on my bike into my nsd home page and if you see me in the future shout something like, "you stinkin' sweaty non-smoker". I'll know it's you ;)

    *it wont be a good pic...as I get told often...so focus on the bike - white with blue Ortleib pannier*

  • Well Done

    Congratulations Forced to quit ......what a brilliant achievement !

    Crack open the champers and give yourself a huge pat on the back , YOU have earned it !
