WOW THE PENTHOUSE Dee you have done a grand job!
Champix got me started, but it was this forum and sheer bloody mindedness that got me here. TODAY I FEEL I HAVE DONE QUITTING AND AM NOW QUIT....
There are plenty posts chronicling my journey...nausea, pain, paranoia, despair, enlightenment but above all lots of laugher courtesy of the many friends I have met on this forum not least the amazing Octoquits. To any newbie's reading feel free to trawl the many laughs along the way, clipboards, bullets, slippers, suitcases, a lot of wine and at one point a video camera featured I believe......:eek:
Everyone has been great but a few specials;
Jack my quit twin....delighted not to win or loose that bet ...thanks for the monthly check ins....lots of love and luck to you and yours my lovely....x
Pol and Christine...it has been a blast. Pol...thanks for the wine and the cushions, and Christine.... thanks for never giving up the bullet...love you both...xx
Kat & Co....you and my "Angel of the North" have given me so much support these last few weeks I will never forget your kindness & loyalty…..thanks and hugs xx
Bradders....Thanks for the kick, the advice and the consistent support. I started running to prove YOU wrong and I keep running to prove ME wrong.........still my hero..x
What's next??......first 10k in Nov then train for the Great North Run in September 2011. Me ?? ....the woman who wouldn't exercise for 25 years in case she broke a nail is going to run a half marathon for charity at 49....If anyone had predicted that would be my penthouse post I would have choked on my Champix. But it is, and I am very proud.
Advice..... I don't have much, everyone's quit is personal and whatever works for you do it. But take one day at a time....you will get there. Being a non smoker is a whole new way of life, embrace it. Believe me it is so worth it.
My room in the Penthouse had a design change. Out with the wine, chocolates, shoes, beauty products and Alan Rickman as my personal butler....
Now a fully equipped gym, a health bar, kit room and Alan Rickman as my personal masseuse...WELL...I've not changed that much ;)!!!!!!
Lots of sweet smelling love....Lorna xxxxxxxx
