6 months:)))

Blimey. I've made it to six months. Go me:)

I have to say it's been easier than I thought it would be, so am now wondering why I waited so long to give this quit a go. My thinking was so out of kilter with reality.

Now I just have to remove this stone in weight which seems to have mostly settled around my mid section. Deep, deep gloom. I know losing this weight will be harder to do....

    Well done Becky! SOOOO pleased for you 6 months is brilliant! That has gone fast too.... you are right, dont know where the time goes. Excellent job knew you would do it!:)

  • Half a year, that's bloomin marvelous, well done you!'n

  • Wow-wee!

    Fantastic news, Becky!

    Don't worry about the extra weight, I bet it won't be hard to lose it. You've stopped smoking after all! if you can do that, you can do anything!

    Well done

  • Thanks Haze. Funny day I've had today, one way and another full of sad memories of another anniversary.

    Then out of the blue the most horrible ear pain. Thought I had burst my ear drum, but it kept on over and over, so it's not a burst eardrum. No pain now, but wonder of wonders, after an op a year ago to clear up diseased bone and put in a new little metal bone and which we, surgeon and I, had established had not worked, I can hear again!!! And bloody hell everything is so loud.

  • Thanks Kazzy and Shoegal. Just amazing how the time flies. Keep going everyone it's so worth it. xx

  • Max, you are right. I did not. I had so many excuses why I shouldn't/ couldn't/ wouldn't. They were all pathetic I might add. x

  • Woo-hoo! 6 months!

    That's fantastic Becky! Both the 6 month quit and your hearing coming back!

    I wouldn't worry too much about the extra weight - exercise should be easier and more efficient now that you've quit, so I bet it's easier than you think it'll be (that's what I'm hoping anyway cos I've got about 3 stone to shift! lol)

    Oh my god! That is amazing! Sorry for the sad memories of another anniversary Becky:(

    Hope you soon get used to being able to hear again. That must feel really strange!

  • Thanks Fi, love. I am chuffed with meself:)

    Haze it was amazing. I had accepted that the transplant thing had not worked after a year of having it done and several hearing tests. The surgeon has offered me another go, which I am thinking about. I almost jumped out of my skin - first with the excruciating pain as I leaned down to get my phone, and then with the noise which was even louder when I put my hearing aid in. I had to go to doc's today tho. I thought that pain meant the eardrum had burst and when that happens I get relief, but the pain carried on this time. I haven't burst the drum, but have a massive infection so am on antibiotics. Maybe my hearing will fade away again when the infection is controlled. Will just have to wait and see. xxx
