The Twelve Days of Quitting

Just a little something I put together on a chilly evening, to be sung to the music of The Twelve Days of Christmas:

On the first day of quitting,

My body said to me,

I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the second day of quitting,

My body said to me,

This is harder than I thought,

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the third day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought,

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the fourth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

I'm not sure I'll make it,

Can't I just have one?

It's harder than I thought,

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the fifth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it,

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the sixth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it,

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the seventh day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it,

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the eighth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Hardly any cravings,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it,

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the ninth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

Think of all the savings,

Hardly any cravings,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it;

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the tenth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

I've regained my sense of smell,

Think of all the savings,

Hardly any cravings,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it;

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the eleventh day of quitting,

My body said to me,

I'm not in smoker's hell,

I've regained my sense of smell,

Think of all the savings,

Hardly any cravings,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

I'm still not sure I'll make it;

Can't I have just one?

It's harder than I thought!

But I'm glad that you finally set me free.

On the twelfth day of quitting,

My body said to me,

By Jove, I think I've done it!

I'm not in smoker's hell

I've regained my sense of smell,

Think of all the savings,

Hardly any cravings,

Gee I've stopped coughing,

Hey it's not so bad now,

Maybe there's hope...

Now I'm sure I'll make it;

Don't even want just one!

It's not as hard as I thought,

And I'm glad that you finally set me free. :)

  • Jingle Bells

    Hi DGee - Loved your 12 days. You've started something now: here's my Jingle Bells :)

    Jingle bells, smoking smells

    It stinks bad in every way

    I have lots of fun now that I’ve stopped

    I say NOPE just every day.

    Jingle bells, tobacco sells

    But it doesn’t take my pay

    I think of all the money I’ve saved

    And I’m richer every day.

    No matter how you quit; NRT may be your way

    Whatever you decide, make your quitting day today.

    Kissing will be fun; the smell won’t put lovers off.

    Running will be lots of fun, and you won’t even cough.

    Oh

    Jingle bells, freedom dwells

    in the heart of every quitter.

    Not only will you smell so nice

    You will be so much fitter.

    Jingle bells, this forum tells

    you all how to quit the smokes.

    You’ll get all the advice you’ll ever need

    as well as many jokes.

  • Another good one Nonico!!

  • Lol nonico :D

  • Applause!

    Well done both distinguished songwriters :D
