Hi guys. Cant believe I've made it. So happy to be here. Its all going well for me except that today I am either getting a sore throat or all my teeth are about to fall out. I love Christmas but I have found it really stressful. We downsized last year and we have 2 young adults as I am told to call them , living at home and 2 in their own homes miles away but they came back and brought partners and a kitten . Man it was such a houseful, swapping beds every night and never having a clean kitchen and the catering. Dogs got unsettled and peed in the house, old childhood rivalries raged. Its a miracle that I didn't fall back on my old crutch, but I am so glad I didn't- I would be feeling so crap now, Smoking felt like "me time" but stopping feels like a rebirth- a chance to be the best person I can. Its AWESOME.
Love this room by the way, really quite a good view from here. I can see my future and it looks bright.
