Hi, Well who would have believed it? Three years on and I'm sitting in exactly the same place at the same table with the same view that I did three years ago and was posting all these new scary non-smoking experiences (as well as throwing up with the effects of Champix!) I can remember the mile-stones of one week, etc as our group made its way through the different stages of the forum.
I hardly ever pop in here but just had to come in on our anniversary month to see if anyone else is still around. We were (are) a great bunch and the Octoquits 09 journey still seems like yesterday in some ways but literally years and years away in another.
It hardly seems necessary to post about smoking as it's not something I even think of nowadays (apart from my dreams where I am still a smoker which is very weird and I often wake up cross with myself and wondering why I started smoking again).
Anyone who is starting out and reading this, stay with the quit. It will be worth it. Ride through the tough times. The freedom it will bring is worth it. Just think, how many times do you meet someone who has given up smoking and regrets that decision? Now compare it with how many smokers regret every starting.
It was great to have shared the quit with such a fabulous group of people. Not sure I would ever have done it without you. Now I wonder if anyone else will pop in in the next month.
Love and best wishes,
