The penthouse!!!!

Hip hip hooray I am in the penthouse!!! yes me I can't believe it.

I never ever thought I could do this after 35 years of smoking, but I did, if I can anyone can, REALLY!!!!!

I did it with sheer determination, allot of help from this forum, met some lovely people virtual people, some are still here but sadly some aren't, but I would like to thank them all.

Allen Carr really put my mind right and for me cold turkey was the only way no nicotene!!

So all you newbies starting out you can do it and I wish you all the best .

Right where's the bar mine's a bacardi and coke please xx.

  • A magnificent achievement after a 35 year habit, you've given me more reasons to believe I can do it as I've only smoked for a mere 31 years compared to you! :D

    I love Wales, each year me and my good lady go to Llangranog for a break and we have really close friends who live in Tegryn.

    Whereabouts in South Wales are you?

  • Really well done Maria! I never had any doubts that you would make it. :)


  • Thankyou Captain, Mrs T, and dear Jac.

    Captain I live in a village not far from Swansea, and the gower coast is lovely.

    Yes you can do it!!! if I can anyone can!!! and my dear hubbie after 51 years of smoking, stopped 4 months ago! I am so pleased.

    It is really worth it, hard to start but it does get better, I don't even think about it now and hate the smell, but the best thing of all I feel free!!

    I wish you all the best. xx
