Omg i made it!!!!!

WAHOOOOOOO!!! a whole year since my last death stick! to be honest im so used to just not smoking that im 5 days late posting lol!

It was a very trying first few months but after 6 months there really is a shift in your thinking when you realise....that really was not so bad after all. I admit there has been struggles where ive used the ecig so im not going to say im perfect BUT atleast smoking was never an option and never will be again. I hated that it had so much over me and i struggled for 2 years to quit for good, I even cried at times wondering if I had the strength to ever give up for good. But I did, and I know if I can do it that everyone can with the right mind set.

My health, my wealth and my mind have all loved the results of not smoking for a year. SO heres to a long, happy and healthy life for all of us xxxx

  • Well done that woman. I'm really going to enjoy the next couple of months on here. Watching people I feel i know going through the doors of the penthouse. So pleased for you:D

  • Oh, Nikki, that's just wonderful! If ever there was someone who deserves to take their place in the Penthouse Suite it's you. I know it wasn't always an easy ride and all the more power to you for holding on through thick and thin. You really inspired me in my early days and I'm as chuffed as a chuffed thing to be able to cheer you home.
