6 Months? Holy Cow!!!!!

Just a post on my new laptop to celebrate hitting my 6 month mark. SWEET!!! I like a lot of us am amazed I've made it so far, one day I had a thought..... why not try it again. As I look back I'm not sure if I really meant it. I wanted to but some where in the back of my mind I'm sure I was thinking I'll do my best and if I don't make it at least I tried. I then found this site and at some point my attitude changed. I don't know when and like I said I was trying and expected to fail. Something about communicating with people in the same situation as you really helps, not some doctor being paid to listen or a friend trying to help but a real person that knows your pain and what you are going through. I'm just very happy to be here and very happy to have friends and people that understand here. It gives me the edge I need to keep this stuff up.

Thanks guys

  • Holy Cow indeed!

    So as well as the lap top are you still planning a huge night out? Tell all, I need to know.

    You should be very, very proud, I am so glad this place has helped, even though you tend to be around when we are all in bed!

    So here's to the next 6 months I'll race ya to that hot tub in the Penthouse.

  • Hi Thomas :D

  • Was this new laptop bought with your savings from stopping smoking? seems a great treat to me if it is and well worth the investment.

    Whats lovely about your post though is how you've turned around your way of thinking re: quitting, going from doubt to confidence and determination. You are right about the support on a forum helping alot, its always great to be among folk doing the same thing as yourself and also that they just understand.

    Its helped me i reckon this time around, i was confident and determined anyway, but the forum i think just cemented it all.

    Well done you!!!!!!!!!

  • Well done you, half a year is brilliant, wishing you many more.


  • Thomas

    Big congratulations - 6 months - I'm a day or two behind you.
