I won't be much help

If you don't see me around on here much it's because something has happened and I don't think I can help others very much just now.

It's all due to a letter that came Saturday I can't go into detail but it rocked me pretty bad (Not a tax bill). I am not just saying this but many would have started smoking again after getting this. Some day I may be able to devulge what it's about.

I like to come on here and try to help others but don't feel I can do that right now. I am on 7 weeks 5 days and I can't give that up so I will try very hard to get through this smokefree. I'll stay logged on for a little while and after I log off don't worry if you don't hear from me for a while I'm sure I'll be back.:(

Jack.

    Oh Jack, have missed your posts recently.:o Sorry to hear we wont hear from you for a while.... You look after yourself & hope all gets better for you very soon..... Big Hugs and try and keep strong.... Kaz x x

  • What ever it is Uncle Jack...keep that chin of yours up! Hopefully you'll be able to ride your challenges out quickly and come out the other side that little bit stronger and with a smile on your face.

  • Jack, this place isn't just for you to help others, it's for you to get help too when you need it. And it sounds like you really need it right now.

    Don't disappear, keep talking, a problem shared is a problem halved and all that. Smoking makes nothing better, you know this. Maybe nobody can wave a magic wand for you but you have a heck of a lot of friends here, and that includes me.

    Here for you with love, support and huge hugs,

    Stay strong Jack,

  • Stay with your quit Jack and keep coming here if only to read and help remind you what your quits all about. This site helps but you've got the strength to keep it going well.

    What ever the news, it wouldn't be different if you were still smoking.

    Thinking of you and hoping all will be well

  • Oh Jack - I hope that you can ride this out - you said that the letter could land you in a whole lot of trouble if you can't prove your innocence - well, good luck I hope you can.

    Try and keep up the quit - you've obviously got something heavy here, but remember how inspiring you've been to so many.

    Good luck - I hope things work out okay - hope to see you again on here soon.

  • Sometimes, life and its troubles seem overwhelming. Maybe you think no one cares. Maybe your life feels out of control. Maybe you had a bad day … or a bad ... but that is life, there are always difficult to overcome.

  • Hi Jack,

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, missing your posts of encouragment and support, You know where all here for you when you come back to the forum.

    Bigs hugs, take care

  • hey jack,

    sorry to hear of your bad news. Hope you can come to terms with it and do whatever needs to be done, even if that is just acceptance.

    Congratulations for being strong and staying quit,

    bman:)

  • My heart goes out to you all.

    I am still a non smoker.

    What a bunch you all are, I can not answer each and every message (post) on this thread individually. All I can say is if I was not stopping smoking I would still come on here just to talk to you guys.

    Thank you all so much for your kind words and messages plus the offers to help. The problem I had I still have but I'm hoping it will be dealt with next week and I don't think me staying off here will help me or others on here.

    I'm seeing a few newbies on here and I think I need to get my finger out and go and help them. I'm an oldie now because I have been stopped for 8 weeks 1 day.:p

    Thank you all.

    Jack, for the guys? a handshake. For the girls? use you imagination.:D

  • Oh Jack you smooth talking devil, Viv and I have been fighting over you!!

    Nice to hear from you, and I hope you are OK. Well done on still being a non smoker. Don't leave me again, I miss you too much:D

  • Ooooo so goood to have you back my lovely....:D

    Big hug and hope things settle soon...

  • I promise not to leave you no more:(

    Why has it taken until this time in my life to have ladies fighting over me.:confused: Oh boy it must be fun to watch though :D:D

    Lindsay xx

  • Hi Jack

    Good to see you back and dealing with stuff in a 'still quit' way, good for you :D

    All the best with getting some solution to things next week or very soon.

    So then, clip board and high heels? Now that is a picture to make one grin and chuckle.

    Re the links you sent me. One worked great and was a real pleasure to listen to. The msm (?) one I couldn't get to open/work/play so I need to try better and I look forward to listening to that.

    Take care, be happy, stay quit

  • Hello there

    Hi Jack,

    Sorry I found this thread so late but I have been wondering where you were the last couple of days and wondering how you were doing.

    I am so sorry to hear you are having a difficult time. I do hope you are talking to someone about it whether it be in here or in real life. You do spend a lot of time helping others and its ok to take some support for yourself.

    I am really pleased you decided to come back. You helped me so much in my first few days when I was a bit lost and here I am at day 22. Almost day 23! I really appreciated your kind words and still do.

    The thought of you coming down to Glasgow if I so much as went near a cigarette in that first week did frighten me into sticking with it as much as it made me laugh :)

    Hope you are doing OK.

    Debx

  • You know it's great to see you Lindsay on just about two weeks and Deb you on day 22. Of course now I'm back on here I can keep a watch on you two but it's a pleasure not a chore. Hmm I'll have to go and find Jenni and Sharon to see how they are doing.

    Hi Sue and Pol hope you're both okay and not craving except for me of course.

    Pol can you direct me back to that link and I'll try to sort it for you.

    Sorry just about to leave the computer you all have a good night.:)

    Jack xx
