Pfaber, wherever you put yourself you are still smoke free so congratulations on that, believe in yourself and your quit.

Stay positive :)

well said Sara :)

Pfaber you know you can do this so well done on jumping straight back onto the wagon instead of using it as a reason to carry on smoking that nicorette demon uses so many devious ways to try and catch us out at least you were honest about having that smoke

onwards and upwards is the way to go :D

Whatever your decision was it was OK with me....:)

Well done on re-starting your quit...shows a lot of mettle to do that.

Just as and aside....although francob's views seem to upset a few people....at least he is staying honest to himself and giving his opinion however toasted he may get for it. He has a straight view on things...and doesn't sugarcoat it (reminds me of my dad). Sometimes we all need that point of view for us to be able to get to a decision we are comfortable with.

Keep on trucking.

No Lisa I think you are VERY wrong, francob is a sanctimonious bully who can only see things in black and white - in other words, he's thick :D

Zoe :p

*sigh*

This explains why there's so much war in the world.

I give up.

???? Don't see how 2 rollies can cause "war in the world"???? The quit isn't the be all and everything, worse things happen as we both know Lisa. It's a question of getting everything in proportion.

Happy New Year anyway.

I don't see how calling someone a sanctamonious bully who is thick is reallying helping anyone to be honest and I'm getting a bit sick of name calling on this forum...hence the reference to wars......seems to be a lot of it about on the forum lately.

It's just not helpful at all.... people have different opinions, we need to respect that and each other.

Weell, see you brought that up from 3 days ago Lisa .... was just watching a lovely musical on telly so prob don't know what I am saying anyway .... was it alright for me to be called a rotweiler though???? Yes, probably I deserved it. NOT holding a grudge though. Just meant to say I didn't think pfaber should consider himself to be back at Day 1 just cos of two rollies. Cos compared to what we used to smoke that is good going. So well done pfaber xxxx

Zoe

P.S. Guess we have all had 'issues' over New Year so are all a bit grouchy. Hope things all get better for us soon though xxxx

I didn't really notice the date ?!?

I was not aware you were called a rottweiler which is pants. I don't agree with it or any other name calling :(

Just getting fedup with it at the mo...we're supposed to be helping each other not having a pop at one another, oh well.

Christmas is a funny time (weird not ha ha).

Hey Carol,

Thank you so much, you are a great friend and inspiration on this forum xxxx dunno what we would do without you :) you don't need to find words, the fact that you care is awesome babes, and we love you for it:) so thank you.

Love,

Zoe xxxx

Sincerely I really appreciate your thoughts Carol but my friend dying hasn't made my emotions run high in terms of this forum. It would just be nice if people would stop with the name calling, it defeats the purpose of this forum and makes the job of quitting more stressful not less.

There is such a thing as freedom of speech and as long as that is respectful of one another then as the saying goes......"anything goes".

Your right about that Lisa and in the real world face to face sort of thing it would

but with the written world you can only see the words and not the emotions behind so some take what is written in a different context there was a post written last year about it when some of the members got upset by what someone else had written :( it did get abit out of hand and someone ended up being banned which was sad as we are all hear for the same reasons support advice and in some cases a chat and form online friendships too which is an added bonus

Hmmm this is the real world albeit online and calling someone a santimonious, thick bully is not acceptable...as I'm sure the moderators of this forum would agree.

Also I don't think you could interpret that any other way could you...?????

This post in itself was not meant to be sarcastic before it is misinterpreted as such. I'm just stating facts as I see it in a neutral tone of voice and manner. However, after seeing the tone of quite a few posts lately I'm going to refrain from this website for a while and maybe have a look in a few months down the line when, hopefully this forum is back to how it was....a nice place to be! Good luck in your quits....asta la vista babies.

Oh come on Lisa, if you have something to say to me say it to my face, and also ask the moderators to ban me if that is what you want. I have tried to make my peace on this forum, but alas no joy from you it seems. If you want me banned, would you be callous enough to ask the moderators to do that? Up to you. And I was not the first person to be insulting to francob if you recall. But seems like I am to be the whipping boy though. And yet it was alright for me to be called a rotweiller which I didn't dispute? KK, get me banned if it makes you feel better. Reckon you are just looking to open old wounds right now though.

Crikey I wonder if we were to look through the histories of all of our posts on this forum whose would be the most, should I say intimidating, controversial and personal???

XX

Being controversial is ok though as long as it's not insulting :)

Reply

Dunno but I feel as if I have nowhere to go now. I don't have a husband to say 'there, there, dear', thank goodness. So shall I just piss off and leave everybody in peace? Might keep some people happy.

omg :eek: im sorry if what i said started this horrible down hill ball rolling and upsetting you both :(

i did mean the virtual world on here words that are written can be taken out of context because you cant see the persons face or hear the tone in which whatever they said was spoken people do some name callings on here and while others just choose to ignore the insults some seem to thrieve on them and the rest get upset i dont want either of you to leave this site we are all in the same boat so to speak to support each other through rough times in achieving a mutual goal of staying quit for good

so please reconcider

LMAO - there's 2 women rowing over Francob and he just strolls in, does a one liner and moves on :D

Love your post Karri :D

PMSL men hey :rolleyes:

Mind you, I have to admit I am starting to agree with francob's thoughts about CT being the best way :o after all I have said. Think it was only the Champix that was holding me together, not very good for my self-confidence :o But I had to stop taking them cos I felt so ill on them I couldn't take anymore, and thought I had a life- threatening illness, so no wonder I am so moody and like a rotweiler.

But anyway, this thread is about pfaber and I still don't think he should go back to day 1 just cos of two rollies. come on pfaber, YOU ROCK XXXX

Well done on your quit pfaber :) I think that whether you have gone back to the start or not depends on you. For me personally, because of my previous track record I would go back to the start only to punish myself as in my mind I feel I would have cheated and if I didn't go back to the start then I worry that I would get into the mindset that it is OK to have one every now and then. However I know people that have had the one and gone on to have completely 100% successful quits and never had another one - I think it is up to you at the end of the day it is your quit.

Karri - I was interested in your reply to Zoe's post finding the best way for you to quit, which I completely agree with as although our goals are the same, no 2 quits are the same. I was just wondering what you used for this quit and how long you are into your quit?
