Day 7

Day 7....

Actually I have been on my quit since Jan 5th, I have slipped twice, and respect for the purity, sanctity and symbolism of the penthouse has plonked me back on day one when I felt I was just parked up for a bit :D

WHEN I get there I will be smoke free for 365 days in a row - non negotiable condition of entry, I get it now!

I had felt this honour code was a little harsh to those of us who have "blipped" - oh what a verb that would be!

I felt, despite the plonking back, I was pretty much on track and on target. I wonder how many blips I would have allowed myself until I was a smoker again??

Today - Day 7, (or Day 33 :D) I believe for the first time I will never smoke again, not going there, ever - don't know what clicked - know I need the inhalator, and KNOW I'm not smoking again - wierd and wow in the same moment :)

Mina,

I've always seen you as being ahead of me :cool:

And therefore, I've always looked up to you. And whether today is 7 or 33, I will continue to do so :)

Because, amongst other things, you have a cool way with words.

I'd like to walk with you into the Penthouse. Will you accompany me?

Hiya and well done on getting straight back on the wagon - it's tough to pick yourself up again but doinf it shows how much you want to quit :)

That's the thing really - it's a slippery slope 'cos you think "well that one was OK" and then you end up doing it more and more.

It is a bit tough, but when you get to the Penthouse you *know* you've been smoke free for a full year, not a whole year except for...

You'll definitely get there :)

I agree. Once the switch has flipped, nothing will flip it back the other way. :)

Mina, you're a star and there is definitely a suite in the penthouse with your name on it. :D
