Ha - done it!

Hi Folks,

Today is a year for me - not one puff.

I've not been on this forum for ages, but I did put this date in my diary to come back and post.

Thank you to everyone who was on here 9, 10, 11 & 12 months ago to provide support when I needed it most. I found determination through reading posts several months ahead of where I was at the time, so the least I can do is add this to the 1 year + thread for new quitters to read.

The past year has had so many of the triggers that would normally have accounted for one of my 20 a day, 19 year habit. Stag nights (including my own) weddings, parties, good times, bad times, 365 mornings, evenings, lunches and dinners and many, many more coffees. None of these things even make me think of smoking any more - it's incredible. What seemed so difficult, was in fact, in hindsight, so easy.

I used the Allen Carr Easyway - the first three days were really quite tough, and the 1st three weeks weren't a walk in the park, but the rest has been enjoyable - if you really want to quit, you can, and it's easier than you expect it will be.

  • Hi Tony

    That's fantastic im on a wwek tomorrow, 14/1/15 will be my year.

  • My one year will be 14/01/2015 too. Found this site this morning, which has been my worst morning yet! I was tempted to chew the table earlier lol.

    One thing that keeps me going though is the thought that if I give in I'll have to go through it all again!:rolleyes:

    Congratulations Tony on your one year milestone.Way to go!!
