For me personally quitting is not about getting to the Penthouse, but about having achieved the goal of not smoking.
I for one dont really like the penthouse ...it reminds me of something that once I achieve I have been successful! 1 year of not smoking is of course a remarkable achievement & rightly so! I dont however feel it will be the point of no return.............. I think that someones personal journey is on going far far past the penthouse!! ............... For some people they may feel they have already failed because they havent got to that one year!! ........ However shouldnt every day someone does not smoke be a blessing!! and a huge reason to celebrate in its own right.
I mean lets face it I have read lots of failed quits on this forum including my own.....or the fact someone as just had one.!! blipped...smoked however its is phrased!! This surely isnt a competition who can get to 1 year with the cleanest track record or is it?
I am awaiting my turn with curious anticipation just to see if I will be editing this post at that time!! or I will stand by the fact that the penthouse isnt for everybody!
