All ship-shape & Bristol fashion - 2 calendar months today !

Not posted for ages as work & home keeping me a little busier than I would like. Dead chuffed though ..... 2 months today !

I have probably missed a few milestones for some of the regulars on here so a huge well done for keeping on track with your quit

Congratulations to those who have recently taken the life enhancing ( yes it will be better ! ) decision to quit smoking .Even if its not your first quit, its the keeping at it and coming back even more determined which will give you a fighting chance.

I definitely do not think about smoking as much as I did in the first month of my quit . I have proven to myself that I can quite happily manage a smoke free night out and I've even have had a weekend away, where to be honest it was a relief not to have to think about when I could have a ciggie without friends or family telling me off. I am however very annoyed with myself and cannot stop thinking ... why did I not quit sooner when I was younger ? :mad:

I hope that I can move on at some point away from that thought and just at least be satisfied that I have quit and will NEVER EVER smoke again !!

Stay strong and keep on track

Donna :)

  • Hey nonny nonny!

    Well done you. Great to see that you're still going strong.

    I think we all have that element of regret, once we realise how much nicer life is without cigarettes. But hey ho, at least we've twigged to it now, eh?

  • Thank you Helen and a hey nonny nonny to you as well !!

    I know that you are right and most people would have that sense of regret once its all clicked into place. I'm not normally one for looking back and having regrets, but the elation of quitting smoking has been a little tinged for me by that annoying thought of 'why the flippin' heck didn't I do it sooner ??'

    Anyway not going to dwell upon it any longer !!!

    thank you too for your continued support ,its great that you take the time to post on here when you are a long term quitter.

    T'other side from you, Alveston but no-one knows where that is! So I just say 'near Bristol' and that just about does it :D

  • Hawk .. Alveston .. lovely part of Bristol ... the posh end maybe :D

    Max , glad you worked out the location ! I know it sounds a bit silly but I dont like to be too specific on a forum :o

    Often in the Sham though , nice little high street and one son plays at KTJFC.

    Chipping Sodbury another frequently visited place and even nicer high street.

    TTFC, both of my boys. Might have played each other! :eek:

  • Have definitely played TTFC over the years and from memory most if not all of the age groups are strong teams. Given my age :eek: I suspect that my son who plays is older than your boys, he is in the U15's.

    Hope your boys do well if they are playing this weekend .. at least you are not amongst some of the parents puffing away on the touchlines :D

    Donna x

  • Yup, a bit younger :p Well done on the two months Nonny, and to the SW contingent - have a fab weekend all! :)
