December month 3 or not??

Morning my fellow octoquitters (looking gorgeous today all of you I may add!!)

Right because of my nature I just can not help this post, BUT are we as a group moving to month 3 in December OR are we sticking in month 2 until January (which is our true 3rd month) and each of us moves in on our calendar date?

Now I know I'm sounding like a jobs worth manager but I do have the tendency to like things precise (I'm an engineer!!) and I feel like I'm somehow cheating by moving into month 3 when in fact my quit is actually only 2 months.

Jesus I need to get out more:o HELP ME PLEASE!

    ...and may I say you too are looking gorgeous!

    I'm for moving into Month 3 in December....keeps up the momentum and the title of the room is;

    Month 3.....The Third Month

    My first month 9.10 till 8.11

    My second month 9.11 till 8.12

    My third month 9.12 till 8.01

    From 9 December I will enter my third month of non smoking.

    or am missing something.???

  • im with you sis

  • Thank you, you look pretty gorgeous yourself Christine, even if your feeling a little frazzled recently......almost the weekend.....

    Yes, come our quit dates, we'll all be moving on up and out :cool:

    Meanwhile, we will all be together for 30th in Month 2 - Party time

    No bacon butties anyone :p

  • You can tell you lot do not work in engineering. Right so I am moving on the 13th December just behind you and Jack (you know what I mean).

    Pol - Party on the 30th how exciting (that will cheer up a Monday). We must do a roll call on the 30th of each month.

    Right that sorted, did I mention my hangover??:mad:

  • 'ere, I do work in engineering, electronics..... what d'ya mean?;)

    Serves you right (the hangover) for not sharing :( My fridge only had half a bottle in it last night.

    Hmmm, what a about Feb roll call:p

  • Ok I'm not an engineer...I write, review and amend written contracts

    can you tell?????????

    :D

  • Aw heck - just got into Month 2 and you guys are talking about month 3..... ok, another motive to stay off 'them'. Hey, where's the beer? All I can see are cake crumbs and (empty) bottles of red.

    Don't listen to her above, beer in the secret fridge in the corner (don't tell anyone).

    Lorna - I resent your comments regarding Pol and I, these are unfounded,hic.

  • Christine - I think I love you, I've found the fridge where you hid it - you're my type of girl. Actually, to the female Octoquits, you're all my type of girl - you don't smoke!!!!! (No offense to my fellow meales, but you're really not my type of guy whatever you do).

    Now, where's the bottle opener........

  • No offence taken Dave lol

  • I think the way these boards are laid out we go to the next month when we 'enter' that month rather than complete it. Strange but otherwise it doesn't work out.

    So my fellow Octoquitters, I shall soon be going to 'The Other Place', I'll be checking alcohol supplies and facilities and reporting back.

  • the pain

    i miss my fags like someone has broken my heart! i take a trip down memory lane everyday - remembering when me and my fag had a cup of tea. when me and my fag had a glass of wine and when me and my fag were dying for a break at work... its bloudy awful!

    its been 2 months (cold turkey) helps that my partner stopped to0 and we have a grand saving of £130 per week - phheewww i can say it now - yip £130 per week!

    i'd say i'm now around a stone heavier and have serious mirror issues (cant stand to see my dimples) who cares though - i've just added ten years onto my life and have never fancied my lipstick seeping into the creases on my lip - yukk!

    The funny thing with fags is when you're smoking them and want to quit, you see it as one of the biggest achievements of your life. however once you've quit, its not that big! - hard to explain!

    i'm not giving into it this time. why should i be tricked into spending all that cash on something that the tobacco lords have injected major chemicals into, in order to get me hooked? i don't bloudy well think so. i am bigger and better than that!

    The past 2 months have been seriously difficult and tested our relationship to the limit. The rage in me even frightens me. i've felt confused, sad, upset, lonely, angry you name it - i've felt it! there are good days and bad days but you've just got to remember that you're addicted to the chemicals in the fags not the fags!

    if i smoke one cigarette, i'll never quit again! thats what's keeping me going. i couldnt go through this horrible sense of loss and confusion again - so the only way is forward!

    Everytime you pass a smoker in the street who is in mid coughing fit - think about that be you but your 65 or 70years old and rattling! yukk a doodle doo! no thanks
