October 2010 Group Monthly Role Call :)

Good morning all my fellow Oct 2010 quitters, its that time again. Another month out of the way and we all finally move into the 6 month free section.

As we all gradually complete the Full 6 months one by one it again would be nice to see how everyone is going regardless of the stage of your quit or not. Good luck to everyone, im so proud of you all and know we can all do this. :)

Now here's to our 6 months and half way point to the Penthouse.........................

My stats for the 1st April are:

I have been quit for 5 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 4 hours and 16 seconds (159 days/ 22 Wks 5 Days).

I have saved £719.88 by not smoking 2,705 cigarettes.

I have saved 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 18 hours and 50 minutes of my life.

Keep it up guys and gals as we are halfway there now, halfway to the Penthouse, half of a year, which is such a great achievement and you should be proud of yourself too. There will be triggers that will get in the way but we can do this, we are stronger than Mr Nic and we all know if he comes a calling we have to tell him to sod off as he is not our friend anymore, it was good while it lasted but he never did fit in around our lifestyle and he has such expensive taste you know. I mean we had to take him everywhere, not now though we dont need him at all. We have come this far and we can keep going. I know the novelty has worn of a bit but that does not mean to say we can be complacent and have that one puff cos we have managed this quit so far, no sureee we cannot we must stay strong and focused and get on with our lives as Non Smokers now. We dont need that horrid weed anymore now do we. I am chuffed witheveryone and want to wish not only the Oct 2010 group good luck but everyone on here as we can all do this.

Hi to all October quitters. I am, unbelievably, still not smoking!! It has been a rough ride and it feels a lot longer. Still taking it one day at a time, but I can hardly even imagine smoking now. Unfortunately, I am still addicted to nicotine (I think) and am on the lozenges. Have cut down a bit but not ready to quit them too. This, I know is purely down to junkie thinking and I am a nervous person by nature (though I seem serene) and need something to rely on. I will deal with this soon. Still, I feel much better and am so pleased to have come this far. I feel better and it has given me more confidence in myself. However, I know I am still an addict and this is annoying, but what to do? Cold turkey now may send me back to smoking and I just couldn't face yet another attempt. thank god for NRT, though if I was given a placebo drug, I am sure I would be fooled. Maybe not.

Well done to you all, keep going on the downward slope (in a good way) to the year mark. Hats off to you all (special hi to nutteenurse who always has a wise word of encouragement to offer) and good luck.

Hi to everyone in the oct quit group. I am very pleased to say that on 12th april 2011 i will have completed 6 months of no smoking. Its been a rocky road so far with some days good and lots of bad days (mostly nights ). Ive recently had a rather big op which i was terrified about but thankfully managed to stay smoke free. Its true when everyone has said just take it one day at a time, it really does seem to help somehow. lets look forward to our next milestone in another month :)

Hi Guys, I'm still here. It'll be 6 months for me on Monday. I can't believe how quick it's gone.

Unfortunately I'm still using the lozengers, but I have weaned down to just 2 or 3 a day.

I've had a few cravings now the warmer weather is here. I used to enjoy sitting out the back in the sunshine smoking. But hey ho, never mind!

Hope everyone is doing well xx

Still around and kicking! Haven't been on here in a while!

I am still smoke-free!!! I have had a few hiccups, like a puff a couple of times (literally a puff), and I think I did have a cigarette one night but I had had so much to drink I don't remember smoking it. I guess that's a good thing! I refuse to beat myself up over it and look at it as just a hiccup!

I have plenty of cravings, way more than I think I should have but I keep saying it's a mental thing and it's just not worth it!

So far, so good!

I haven't looked around yet but I hope my fellow quitters are hanging in there with me!

Keep up the good work!

Kim in Canada!:D
