8 months! so proud

Guess what 8 months yesterday I, YES ME!!!! packed in those horrible cigs.

Never ever thought I could but I did. It wasn't easy on times but I grit my teeth, dug in my heels and slowly but surely it got better.

I think I have over come all the triggers now, and hardly think about smoking even when stressed, and even when having a drink with smokers!

So all you newbies it can be done and so worth it.

Well done Maria, eight months is great and you deserve it too. Two thirds of the first year done, onwards and upwards. David


Go Betty Boop!!!Whoop Whoop!!!

Way to go Maria!



8 Months Is Terrific!!!

Hello Maria- So Happy to read your post!!!

8 Months Is a wonderful amount of time to have not smoked.

Your body will be so much better for not having to be subjected to a constant stream of (basically)poisonous chemicals.

And Surely you must feel so much better for it.

Well done,Maria...I'ts So Worth It!!!!



Well Done !!

Congratulation's Hun, 8 months that's bloody fantastic. :)

Just think only 4 more to go and we will meet for the first time in the penthouse.

Anyhow glad you have got over most of the triggers now and hardly ever think about them, it is def so much nicer being a non smoker than a smoker and you have been an inspiration to many on here with your helpful posts etc.

Anyhow take care and those last 4 months well they will fly by! :)


Congratulations Maria, that is SOOOO FAB:D

And like dragon says, it is really encouraging for us newbies.

Well done,



I would like to thank everyone for your kind wishes, and special thanks to Alex, David, Jo, Tracey, Karri, Gaynor, Jack, DD, Helen, Boo and so many of you in the beginning, [ my apologies if I have left anyone out ] without you I truly think I could not have done it. This forum is the best!!

To all you newbies it can be done!!! even after 35 years of smoking:eek:
