No Smoking Day

Moving on up

Right then, after much internal debate as to whether I deserve to post the following, I have decided after much lecturing by a certain Nifty (and another), that I will.

Despite not believing for a second that I could get through more than a couple of hours whilst awake without a cig, and if I forgive myself my 3 cig hour of utter stupidity and self destruction, I have now completed 6 months since my quit date.

I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would not have done that if not for this forum and the many wonderful people I have met here. I found this forum the day after I quit and read tonnes of old posts. I couldn't believe how much of a difference those old posts made to my knowledge of my addiction and to my resolve to stay off the fags. I owe a lot to the well informed long term quitters that chose to share their knowledge and opinions with the rest of this forum.

I also know that I would not have got through the bad times I have had without smoking if not for the amazing kindness of the people here. It is a wonderous thing to know that anyone can log on here and immediately get very specific support (i.e. Don't smoke!) as well as genuine sympathy and advice on all things no matter what the problem.

Anyway, I know that I have not been around as much of late but I wanted to say thank you to everyone on here for helping me get to where I am now. You lot really are pretty cool :D

Also, I just would not be 6 months quit without my quit buddies, Kazzy and Greg, I know they are not around as much now but we got each other through those first few months with smiles and laughs :D

Right, is anyone still awake? :)

OOOOOH. 6 months:D I love it. Bloomin brilliant, Molly, especially after the terrifically sad and very significant event that you have had to cope with. You should be so proud of yourself. I'm so chuffed for you. xx


Hi Molly!

Well, there you have it. WHAT THEY SAID ^^^!!

This is such an achievement, half way to the penthouse already. Thoroughly deserved - your resolve, determination and sheer will have brought you to this fantastic place in time. Your posts were among the first I read when I joined this forum to get a feel for what it's like further up the mountain, and they helped and inspired without you even noticing. Thank you!!
