Woo wooo 200 days

Hello All

Two hundred days, I'll just say that again, 200 days since I last smoked a fag. Can I ruddy believe it, yes because it's true - what a ruddy fantastic thing. *Little tap dance*

Still counting my way through the year, looking towards the penthouse, the likelihood of smoking now I hope is remote, although I'm still cautious especially around alcohol and people who smoke. Quit blues around some days and not others, still readjusting to a life without nicotine, especially if there's an obsticle or something or extreme emotion such as anger.

Am so pleased I finally managed to stop, it's easier to run, my bank balance is healthier, not having to plan a fag, not going outside in the cold, not stinking of cigs - the improvement not smoking has brought to my life has been tremendous. It also proves I can be determined over a sustained period of time. I intend to be part of the 0.5% who have still quit smoking after a year.

My next milestone is 7 months which will be on New Years eve, a fitting celebration to 2010. None of the friends I will be with are smokers, I was the only one who went out for a fag.

  • Congrats Mah...what an achievement considering you seem to have struggled a lot getting there.

    You do seem to have a very realistic and down to earth awareness of yourself and the likely triggers you will/may face. I sincerely hope that you soon get to viewing your new non smoking life in more optimistic terms....and revel in it :)

    My bad...I slightly misread *little tap dance* substituting an 'l' for a 't' :eek::o

  • Brilliant, great achievement, keep going as you are, you are a winner.

  • 200 days is a goody. A great milestone to hit from the mental point of view I found. Great going! Did I miss Cav giving you a lap dance? :eek:

  • Hi MAH :D

    200 days is brilliant well done you

    Love

    Marg xx

  • Well

    Fi, I do believe Cav was remiss, although I hope he keeps his shreddies on whilst showcasing his arse - ugh!

    Jackie and Marg - thanks your support means alot.

  • Hey Mah

    200 days is fabulous, well done hun.

    Thanks for all the support you give all of us lower down the forums we really do appreicate it and it is great to have people like you to aspire to.

    Big hug

    xx

  • Yes 200 days does indeed sound great and well worth repeating and TAP dancing to.

    Only 0.5% are typically quit after the first year? Not very likable figures but love your absolute belief you will be part of that figure. Me too.

    You've put up some great posts lately, thanks. Good practical tells it as it is reading.

    I hope the time ahead calms down and the wobbly moments become fewer and farther between............ the kind that are, without any real thought, easily dismissed with nonchalant wave of the hand.

    Congratulations, proud times

  • MAH,

    You share the same aspiration as me, i would also like to be among that 0.5% very very much. So you are now at 200 days.. 2 centuries.. 200 days of denying the government their excessive tax which lets face it, as smokers we moaned about having to pay all the darn time. 200 days where you have not introduced 4000+ poisons into your body and blood stream, you have not smelt of cigarettes for 200 days, you have saved 200 days worth of the money you would have spent.. and whats more? You are forever a richer man for many many other reasons.

    You sir, are doing this, each and every day, and you should be so damn proud of your efforts and constant resilience against lifes stresses without resorting to an addictive vice in order to make it 'seem' better.

    Mah, i salute you and your continued effort, and i'm following right behind you, and i'm sure many others too, just as you follow your quit smoking peers. We'll get there, and we'll show the world that quitting smoking IS possible.

    Good on you!

  • wtf :eek:

    Hey....I shaved that arse this morning ;)

    Must be a shadow by now!

    Lorna, Pol, glad my efforts are appreciated and thank you for taking the time to tell me, it means a great deal. In turn I have Chrissie, Cav, Fi, Marg, Stuart, Bella, Jackie and Nic to thank for keeping me right (amongst others).

    Cheers Trev, both en route to the penthouse, do you know how the extention is going? Thought someone was going to get *wiki* to allow for a two story dwelling to be known as penthouse. It'll need to be when we all get there.

    MAH,

  • My apologies Mah, i did actually forget myself in my post, i said 'sir', was my mistake, i had about 4 virtual replies to many posts going on in my head, and err'd the err of err's :) hehe.

    I should read my posts alot more before clicking the submit button, think i was rushing as I had present wrapping to do.

  • Great job getting to 200 days (plus), M, well done! Soon you'll have days you won't think of them at all! You keep on truckin xx

  • Must be a shadow by now!

    Hmmm....an affronted BB.....a rare sight to behold.

  • Well done Mah. Of all the people on here, both you and Jase will be in the 0.5 per cent, just for sheer bl**dy mindedness....:) You knows it. I knows it.

    See that penthouse....? ;)

  • Nice Arse Cav.....;)

  • Jude - Surely not, bl**dy minded moi - you've got me mixed up with..........

    Jase - no worries mate!

    Cheers Cav, meant that your freshly shaved arse prob had a shadow on it (overproductive folicles) , David's arse (if that's who's it is) looks stained - is that from nicotine smoke.

    BB13 - cheers onwards and upwards.
