10 Months and Moaning LOL

Well I have just seen that there are some new posts on my 9 Month thread and here I am into the 10th Month, the time has flown by and it is only through this site that I am now solid in my quit.

I can’t say that it has been easy, I wish I could but when all is said and done I have smoked for a lot longer than I have been quit, how can you wipe out 40 years of a habit in 10 months without feeling absolutely sh!te and not exactly in tip top form either, but hey I am now a none smoker and hopefully all the bi products of smoking are now clear of my body and soon I will begin to feel healthier than I do now, there are still times when I wonder why quitting can make you feel so rough but it is I’m sure all part and parcel of the cleansing process.

So I now need to thank all those yet again for helping me to get through yet another month which is how I have managed to make it a step nearer to the Penthouse, one day one week and then one month is the only way I have managed it.

I will also apologise for the fact that over the last couple of months I have not done my share of supporting, the only excuse I can offer is that I have moved house and am finding that it has created a lot of stress, and we all know that stress can make us a little vulnerable which is how I am feeling at the moment, I am not asking for sympathy only giving reasons for my lack of performance after all I have taken from the site.

So here I am 2 months away from the Penthouse and 2 months from Xmas, I hope that everyone is feeling upbeat especially Dav who I know is going through a rough time at the moment and amazingly is not moaning, which makes me feel a bit weak and self pitying.

Thanks for your support everyone and I am glad that some of you will be there to give me a helping hand up all those stairs, I hate lifts LOL

So here we go again into month 11 and to anyone who has still to reach these dizzying heights I promise you that it is all so achievable and well worth it, forget about my moan we all have to let rip now and then and today is my day for a moan.

  • Hmmm ... you've actually completed 10 months today :cool:

    There Goes A Tenner

    Hope all settles again soon following your recent move. Moving home does make for a stressful time and given your normal cheerful disposition, a bit of grumpiness and self pity is allowed ..... but only for a short time ;)

    Congratulations Jam :)

  • Even I was surprised to discover that it's only 2 months to Christmas :(

    Where's the time gone? It's gone on not smoking and that can't be a bad thing, in point of fact a fantastic achievement to look back on the year and able to say that.

    It doesn't matter that there were 40 different years, this is the one you didn't....as an adult.

    Congrats Jammie....and for the house moving also. Hope that you have many happy years in both new situations :cool:

  • Yes I have and I couldnt be any more amazed than you are but there you go, every Day gets me closer to the year mark and I am so looking forward to that milestone, I am over the grumps thank goodness, thats what moving house does for you.

    Thanks pol for your Post, you have always been there for me and made me keep on keeping on my quit, so many others will Im sure also thank you x.

  • Thanks Cav, I can always rely on you to make me see that the 40 years are gone and that I will never be a smoker again, now is what matters as you so rightly say.

    Sun is shinning and I smell of fresh air and lavender as I have been drying it for the winter, also relaxing and hopefully will cure my head, I hope.

    Onwards and upwards is the only way x

  • Jam you allowed a moan every now and then, Pol will tell you I have done my fair share !!!

    Onwards and upwards, or as Churchill said, KBO, KBO.

    Dee xx;)

    Thanks Dee I had to google what it meant even though my partner says I should know as I was there********* :eek: he likes hospital food thank goodness for him!!!!!!!!!

    Your quit is great and Pol has been a megga support for me so if she says we can moan then moan we will, I had some wine last night to celebrate but not the same as it used to be with no one on here to drink with and act silly with ( I dont act silly very often ) have a good day all and stay smoke free and happy x

  • So well done.....youre so nearly there

    Amanda

  • Thanks Amanda, good to see you on line and I hope you are still enjoying your quit, I seem to have a problem with food still but getting there (20 stone will be the next step LOL) not really but feel like im way over weight even though I have only put on 10LB in total but feels like double that, have made a decision that I will have to get more exercise :eek: so so scary.

  • Hi Jam

    I will have a drink with you anytime my love, Dee raises her vodka and tonic (slimline of course) to Jam.

    Sorry if the KBO made you go searching, its an expression son and I adopted some years ago, it sums up a struggle really well, I love it.

    Dont worry about the weight, if you have only put on 10lb you are doing really well, I have gained 20 but apparently 2 stone is the norm. Things will even out as you start to feel better, honest.

  • Would I lie to You :rolleyes: I will be happy now to just lose a bit as I wasnt too plum before I quit in fact most people say I look better for putting on a couple of pounds.

    Yea I like you saying, mines Sh1te happens :D

    Just off to make some porridge :eek: nearly every day we have it for breakfast as its supposed to be good to lower Cholesterol which went up after quit, thought we got healthier LOL Im sure we will all get back to "normal" eventually humph.

  • OMG!!!!

    Ah Babe that is so sweet of you, what you don’t know is that your more of an inspiration than you realise, its ok to ride a horse and be lucky that you have the strength to hang on and not fall off (my Botty is super glued to the seat I reckon:eek:) but it shows even more stamina and courage to be thrown and yet still get back on the horse and not give up which is what you have done.

    You do not need to be jealous you are creating for yourself one hell of a quit and I am so sure you will be up there in the Penthouse in the not to distant future.

    Pat yourself on the back because you have chosen to quit again and not give in to the Nicco Demons, I am watching your space xxx

  • Many congratulations Jamangie, (sorry it's a bit late, been away). You have given more than your fair share of support over the ten months, and laughs also with very little moaning that I can remember.

    I hope the two months fly to bring your arrival to the penthouse, and I shall certainly raise a glass to you with my Christmas Dinner.

    Have a wonderful new life in your new house, how exciting. Look forward to applauding you into that Penthouse.

  • Thank you Lorraine for your kind words, I hope you had a nice time where ever you went, and I hope it was somewhere warm and sunny.

    Life is pleasanter now as I can taste choccy mmmm that’s what I have ordered for pressies on Xmas day, no baccy this year thank goodness, I also hope you get whatever you want and desire x
