A Year * Woo-hoo * Made it to the Penthouse

Well, officially at 9pm tonight ... Looking forward to joining the party ...

I don't know what to say that others haven't already said, so I'll just repeat a few bits as reassurance for those earlier in their journey:

[*]360 days ago, I thought I'd never be able to live without my cigs

[*]Some time later, I realised that I could

[*]Reinforce your decision every day

[*]Pat yourself on the back for your efforts

[*]Remember that Practice Makes Perfect

[*]Remember - NOPE

[*]Not smoking, and not thinking about it all the time, becomes the norm

[*]It DOES get easier

[*]There are plenty of wonderful people on here who are living proof that it CAN be done, no matter how bad it seems some days

Ladies and Gents - I couldn't have done it without you!

Nuff said! Good luck and best wishes to all of you! :D

Welcome my friend!

Get in!

Welcome to the Penthouse! I have been waiting for you and I am soooo pleased you are now here. Did not doubt you for a minute Shazza, although we had our moments didn't we.It is a rollercoaster this quitting lark.

Really really well done Shazza!:):):)

Ooh well done Shazza!!

Ladies - thank you.

Trea - I always have treats on Sundays, generally involving food and wine - perhaps just a bit more today! :eek: It's still quite chilly here, but it's dry and the sun is shining brightly. So I'm going to spend the next couple of hours doing outside stuff and breathing in lungfuls of crisp fresh air. I think hubby and I are about to attempt first mow of the lawn this year - now its no longer under a pool of water!

Gemma - yes, proud as punch. It really is mind over matter - be unashamedly stubborn and pig-headed!

Hazel - my quit bud and Mrs Support for everyone. :D Oh yes, it's an up and down journey with its up and down moments. But hon, we did it! So pleased to be joining you - looking forward to that tiller dance, hot tub and bubbly later with you and Mags and all the others too numerous to mention.

Yaaay :D

Thank you Max. You're doing a grand job and you WILL get here.

OMG - my quit stats for the (almost) last year:

5467 cigarettes not smoked

Saving £1,914.00.

Life saved: 2 weeks, 4 days, 23 hours, 35 minutes.

:eek: Not sure where the £2K is :confused:

Aitch - I hope you're well. Thank you so much. You were one of the first to welcome me on here when I was a mere 55 days quit. Where did 10+ months go between then and now?!? Thank you. :D
