I've only gone and done it!

Hi everyone,

After many failed attempts I have at long last been quit for a whole year today :eek:

There where many times when I thought I would never kick the fags but stubbornly refused to give in. I knew a quit would stick one day and it has.

It's the best thing I have ever done and don't regret it for a second.

Wherever you are on your quit journey just believe in yourself and the fact that you are stronger than the call of the nicodemon.

Will save you a seat in the penthouse as many have done for me. Thank you my friends :D

    I bet you're dead proud of yourself!!

  • Brilliant!! Well done Gaynor.

    Youve just given me a huge boost so thank you!

  • I am so, so happy for you!!!

    Never has a forum name been so appropriate. I've seen you pick yourself up and dust yourself down a few times, and a lot of people would have thrown in the towel but not you. You should be incredibly proud of yourself. Enjoy the penthouse, and enjoy the freedom!

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I could never have got here without the support of this forum.

    I savour every day of being smoke free. The thought of smoking fills me with disgust now so long may that continue ;)

    Saw the price of ciggies while queuing at a local store and nearly passed out with shock. I would often by a packet of ciggies with my loaf of bread and was stunned to see that would now cost me a tenner. No thank you very much :p

    I certainly know that 'Neverstoptrying' will be placed above the mantleshelf, pride of place, cos that is so deserving of your perseverance as well as a mantra for life :cool:

    Many come, some do it with ease, others with a struggle or 2, and then there's Gaynor :cool:

    Calls for an oldie....erm, from an oldie :o: Heather Small - Proud Click the link.

    Congratulations a classic example of persistence and self-believe if ever I saw one and an excellent illustration that it can be done.

  • Was looking for you, Gay or and found this thread. Well done!!

  • Hi Gaynor,

    Not here often these days, but popped by for the first time in months and saw your one year post.

    I may be a little tardy with my response - but I am so so pleased to see how well you have done - and my lateness in congratulating you does not for one moment reduce my admiration.

    Stay strong,

    Deke

    Don't come on here very often these days but I know it's never too late my friend to celebrate your wonderful completed year. Wishing you many more wonderful clean and fresh smelling years to come.
