    Thanx to u all and keep up your own personal quits, Your all doing fantastic and I have enjoyed viewing all the posts over the last 10 months Kaz xx:p

  • Kaz, huge congratulations on 10 months wow what a fabulous achievemnt and hopefully I will be there in August.

    Love the list, I have one too. Have treated myself to things I would never normally buy as they were too expensive.

    1 pair of gorgeous boots..£120.00

    Fab jacket £165.00

    Gloves £51.00

    All are gorgeous and I am getting the greatest of pleasures wearing stuff that normally I would consider out of my price range. Normaly clothes are the cheap variety now as I have put on sooo much weight....:o

    Well done again and it is looking up to people like you that keeps me going.

    L xx

  • Cheers

    Thanx Lorna, What a lovely message....

    Great to see you are enjoying the money u saved throwing away on cigs just like me... I think when I get to 1 year will carry on but with £2 just cos its been so great to treat myself instead of wasting my money.... And its a good excuse ha ha .... Keep going strong, You are doing brilliant. Its well worth the effort.. Kaz x :)

  • Hey Kaz I thought I would answer the post you left me on the other thread on here.

    Wow! all that from 10 months not smoking, a big congratulations on 10 months absolutely brilliant.

    Let's see what have I bought myself since I stopped smoking.

    2 packets of extra strong mints,

    4 bottles of Fanta

    A packet of Whethers originals

    Some apples and some oranges

    Well I haven't been working have I? but I tell you this as soon as I start working again which looks like tomorrow I'll save up my money from not smoking and buy myself a 42" HDTV so there.:D

    Seriously Kaz well dome.

    Jack x

  • T.v. ......

    Ha ha Jack, U have made me laugh with your list, but seriously u would have found the money to buy cigs so yeah when u are working take the money out u would have spent on cigs then put it towards that tv....

    Thanx for your support, it still helps even at 10 months, cos I cant get take this for granted, or the demons will strike... Kaz x x :p

  • Hey karen. You march quitters all remind me of spring and new beginings! Lovely to see so many of you nearing the penthouse. Well done you!

  • Hi Karen and other 6+ Month quitters recently come out from the woodwork :)

    I've only been on this site for just short of 3 months and thought that there weren't many 6 month + folk about............... there's been the usual members who I recall from when I signed up, but lately there have been so many more coming forward as their year and move into the Penthouse approaches and it's been great to see the numbers suddenly swell.

    Cheers :cool:

  • Out Of The Woodwork Ha ha

    Hi Pol, The reason I came out of woodwork ha ha as u say is cos I introduced my friend Sharon to the site and I wanted to give her support and advice as I remembered how much it helped me at the start. It is very addictive this forum, and I spent alot of time on the first 6 months. I still came on to see how people were getting on, but didnt post, as if your not careful takes over your life... Which it did at first, but not complaining cos if it wasnt for this forum wouldnt be where I am today....

    Great to see so many newbies doing so well...

    Hope u dont want me to climb back into the wood work:D Kaz:p

  • Hope u dont want me to climb back into the wood work:D Kaz:p

    What and miss your one year move into the Penthouse and your journey there? Of course not :p

    It is addictive and a good replacement - much better than NRT any day

  • Sticking Around....

    Well cheers Pol I will now stick around and then climb into the Penthouse... Cant promise it will be quietly though, cos I still cant believe am at 10 months let alone thinking of 1 whole year ha ha Kaz

  • Party planning required -)

    Cant promise it will be quietly though, cos I still cant believe am at 10 months let alone thinking of 1 whole year ha ha Kaz

    The noisier the move/party the better - I know I'll make it but still can't believe it for myself even with the stubborn determination that I have.

    I also recognise that I will always miss smoking but I can deal with that.....

    Looking forward to your noisy colourful springlike burst into the Penthouse :cool:

  • Party like its 1999....

    Good then thats me and U looking forward to a big party.... I will save u a very nice spot, because u will deserve it... Heres to the next 2 months going very quick ha ha :p:p

  • Ha ha Jack, U have made me laugh with your list, but seriously u would have found the money to buy cigs so yeah when u are working take the money out u would have spent on cigs then put it towards that tv....

    Thanx for your support, it still helps even at 10 months, cos I cant get take this for granted, or the demons will strike... Kaz x x :p

    You are correct we would find the money somehow for cigarettes.

    Don't disappear and I'll let you know when I have bought my HDTV.:)

    Jack xx

    BTW I put a link onto this thread for Debs.

  • Staying Around. Am Addicted Again....
