Never thought i'd see the day- into the 6+ i go!!

Yay- into the 6th month i go!

Wow- thats been very fast!

The only downside i can possibly find is the extra stone i have put on, but i can always lose weight (which i plan on doing)!

The benefits at this stage:

Number 1 (and the most important) would be the fact that i am proud of myself for being able to do it. It hasnt always easy, and i am sure i will still get hard days, but i am now confident that i can get through it.

I dont smell

I dont have a smokers cough

I can taste things- really taste things- am eating foods that i didnt even think i liked!

My kids are proud of me :D

My kids clothes no longer smell of smoke

95% of the time i dont even think about smoking

I have saved money (although i dont know how much, as i am yet to open my smoking savings jar- am doing that on Aug 9th of this yr)

I LOVE being a non-smoker!!

To all the newbies- please ride out the tough times, its so worth it!

To all the oldies (hehehehe :p)- thanks for your help along the way!

I cant believe that the next time i move up a section, i will be going into the penthouse!!:eek:

That's ruddy fab news Claire, seems like it's flown by since you first joined the forums - ruddy well done again, so pleased for you, you've done good.

Have absolutely no doubt you'll be in the penthouse.

Onwards and upwards.

That savings jar sounds veeery exciting. Not sure I'd be able to hang on until August. Clearly you are a paragon of steely willpower!


Well done Claire, I remember when you first joined..seeing your posts cropping up all over the show!! Can't believe you have done 6 months - keep up the good work xxx


Thanks you Guys,

now if only i could apply the same thinking to giving up chocolate as i did to giving up smoking!!

Determined to shift this extra weight!


Congrats Claire, that's amazing! Sorry I missed this a few days ago, like you said, I don't even think about smoking half the time so am not on the site as much as I used to be.

Getting my eating habit under control is my next step too, haven't reached 6 months yet but save me a space, I'll be there in about 6 weeks!


well Claire i'm a month late with this but congratulations!

and i'm moving on up today too, so just a long lazy summer in the 6 month forum and then penthouse for the winter months, perfect :)


congrats congrats!! hope to be where you are in 5 months:D by then you will almost be at a year!!


A big well done, 6 months is amazing, keep going forwards and stay positive :cool:
