my names chrissy and i don't smoke

31 days!!!!!!!

It just feels so normal now i know I had only been back smoking again for six months but I'm so happy I've slipped quite easily back into my non smoking self ....

I was worried for a while I had totally ruined my two year quit. I tried a couple of times to stop and found it so hard

Lesson learned ...... you can't have the odd cig :( plus don't give up giving up ;)

  • Hooray!! Well done honey, that's it now isn't it, never again? I know that's hard to say, but we do actually mean it don't we :)

  • Wow max, bit deep??

    :)

  • Am I right in thinking that we can therefore picture our nicotine demon as a Gremlin and our cuddly quit as a Mogwai???:confused:

    Kat I love that idea!! My dad always used to scare me when I was little saying that there were gremlins under our sink, so I can relate to that!! And always loved little Mogwai!!

    That's it then, kill the gremlins! :D:D

  • Tis a bit deep Nicki isnt it,sorry :o

    But its an idea,to think of your 'quit' as a living,dependent,cuddly entity even perhaps with a name,innit?:D

    No problem, deep as you like mate :)

  • Well done Chrissy, I also learned my lesson to there is no half measures we are either a smoker or a none smoker, I know what I want to be.

    Well done sweetheart XXX

  • Arrrr fanks everyone I'm so glad to be here again rather than outside making myself smell lol ...

    I shall protect and nurture my baby mogwai :D

  • Ah, I know how you feel about relapses. It feels good to be back on the right path tho, eh? There is a little danger with having "successful" quits, then relapsing and then quitting again. It kind of teaches us that we can do it again and again, which provides a nice excuse for another relapse I.e. Done it before, so I just have a few tonight and I can easily quit again tomorrow, or next week, or next month..... That's how it has gone for me anyway. I find it rather scary to say that this is the one, last time coz I've said it before. What is different this time?

    Sorry for the ramble.... Congrats so far and let us both stay quit this time!

  • and as always it has taken a woman to bring your amoeba of an idea to full fruition - I take it I will get full credit?!:p

    It was your idea Kat wasn't it? That's how I see it anyways :D damn fine one too! I'm loving it :D

  • Thanks roosa

    I know what you mean about quitting before but seriously I don't want to go through this ever again all though I've done it cold Turkey and so far to be honest it's been quiet easy... I'm hoping at nearly 40 I've learnt my lesson I really cannot allow myself to do this to me and my family no more.

    I have an 18 year old son a 15 year old daughter and a 11 year old son .... and most recently a beautiful baby daughter I intend to do the best I can to be around till and hopefully after shes 18

    As ive said before this is it no more excuses i owe it to my kids

    ;)

  • Hi Chrissy, great post and I think you said it - go again, stay strong and it's yours. Four reasons, wow - beautiful! :)

    Oh hell, there's a Mogwai?

    Chrissy - totally agree, a lesson most of us have had to learn the hard way - but once learned, never forgotten - it's the secret of success!!

  • Hello everybody am new to this forum and quit on the 26th of January. Have no idea if I am in the correct room so please forgive any intrusion. I do wish I had found you all earlier as tracking back over your previous posts it would have been a huge help during the darker moments ,that am sure we have all experienced. Have made myself no promises am just glad I had the foresight and will to have a go. I feel fantastic physically and had a whole day yesterday without even thinking about a cigarette until I saw an ad for nicotine patches on the TV , a major breakthrough for me. I chose the cold turkey route and have due respect to any method chosen, some take the M1 others go by the B roads destination is the same.... Keep up your generous and fantastic work and hope to stay in touch.

  • Wow Dangerbacon, that's one hell of a first post! And very similar to mine, looks like we've chosen the same path and I too found the forum one month in, wish I had sooner.

    Blood well done. Stay strong, and nope, you should be in the month 2 room - it just gets better... :cool:

  • Morning dangerbacon

    We quit on the same day!!! I did cold Turkey too you sound very positive well done on your quit and welcome to the forum xx
