I've had a fantastic weekend. Both my lads won their football matches and we did the dads' drinks at the club afterwards. I've watched my daughter play hockey (Mrs H and I normally split the runs, 3 into 2 doesn't go). I've watched the rugby, played games, cleaned boots, cooked and eaten a roast with the family, read the papers, and I've just finished some cheese with the remains of the shiraz.
Right now, this very second, it doesn't get any better. Actually it's nothing I haven't really done before, but previously I've been 'popping out' at regular intervals which has taken the edge off what's important.
I've just reflected on how I came about this forum, and realised that I've spent a month enjoying the good company, humour, encouragement and general companionship of a great group of people. Thank you!!!! This weekend I did it with my family, and really concentrated on it. It's really very good. And February has come, and with it my third month smoke free. I barely noticed.
I'm so pleased to have met my fellow Christmas Conquorers, and all of the people who saw the light before me and who light the way, and those who (like me) have chosen a new way of living this year. Everyone's doing so well! I'm really very pleased, very pleased indeed.
Hello month three....
