One Year!!!

Today I finally walk through the Penthouse door.

I made the decision to quit because I didn't want to look back on my life and wish that I had done it sooner. I didn't give in during the bad times because I couldn't bear going through the quit again.

I was so surprised on my first post on the forum that people were so quick to reply and really knew what I was talking about, the support on here has been invaluable and has given me the confidence to get through the bad times when I really wanted a fag.

I want to say a big thank you to everyone that has helped me over the last year and to those who are thinking about stopping or having a hard time with their quit to just go for it and think NOPE, not one puff ever!!!

Im in the penthouse!!!! yeeeeeeeaaaaahhhhh!!!!!

Thank you one and all for such fantastic support and lovely messages. I replaced my 10.30am fag break with a hot choc (thanks for the reminder fiona!!) and a regular post on here, now Im addicted to crisps and slightly rounder than I was.

will see you here soon zozie, lornaj, lozza, elliekez, mah, bev and bladeflyer, D thanks for your comments

to the oldies (no offence!) Nog, fiona, cav, viking, david and jackie thank you for your support and just having been there before me and being able to give advice!Marg, you have been a huge inspiration and always have time for others I admire your dedication to this forum!

greg, deke, caroline and kaz my MMQ buddies will see you here soon xxx

I went back to my first post and here it is, even then I was so surprised that I got so many responses. I never been on a forum before and never did I think I would get such words of wisdom, a chance to rant and, to be able to support others and be a part of so many other peoples quit journey.

first day today and Ive got nicotine patches and gum to help me! went to the gym for an hour and waited to get home before putting a patch on, big mistake as I was sorely tempted to just have one, thinking stuff it I will start again tomorrow. after over an hour of extreme grouchiness I went out to see family, had a gum and got over myself!!

good luck to everyone else, I know Ive got to succeed this time as I cant go on giving up every year and failing!!

Im off to read the rest of my posts now!! thanks again xxxxxxxxx

Sam :D
