Day 7

This evening I will celebrate 1 week free of the evil Dr. Nico.

My wife stopped at the same time as me, so we'll treat ourselves to a nice glass of wine :)

We worked out that we will save €3000 per year! Thats a full on holiday for us and our 4 kids, awesome.

Tough going but getting a little easier every step at a time.

Keep on fighting all! This forum really helps me out, thx to you all!:)

Many congratulations to both of you Andy :)

You're quite right- it is tough going at first- but every day will become a little easier and you'll never regret your decision to quit. A whole week under your belt already and before you know where you are the two of you will be counting in months. That holiday will be a reality sooner than you think!

Never mind a glass of wine- I think a bottle is in order at least.. :D


Im from south west Wales, but have lived in the Netherlands for the last 14 years. Currently visiting my parents in Thetford, Norfolk - this holiday was just the push my wife and I needed to quit, time out of the normal routine. Plus my Dad quit 2 yrs ago after 50 years of smoking, and I'm so proud of him for doing this


Really my husband is Welsh and Im going to Norfolk in two weeks. My friend has a caravan there so we are taking our boys there for a break. x

What a coincidence! Hope you have a great holiday. I like Norfolk, plenty of outdoor things to do with the kids


Hi Andy and well done on a week, so amazing the money you can save and a Holiday is a great thing to do to enjoy the money :)


Great to read your still going strong, and doing it with such style.

Just keep going, fantastic to have those first few days under your belt.
