Day 2, yet again!

Hi everyone :)

Well I have decided that it is high time I put my shoulder to the wheel and make 2015 smoke free. Been here and tried a few times before, this time I'm not messing about!

Seriously though, I have to quit. I'm getting older, I was smoking more than ever and I can start to really feel the effects of smoking. So no more. Today is day 2, didn't want to post yesterday as I thought it might be the kiss of death. To be honest though I was so hungover the last thing I wanted was a smoke!

So a big hello and happy New Year to all, 2015 has got to be the year the habit dies for good.

Keep on keeping on,

Cheers :)

Ahh bless you and thank you TG :)

Day 2 isn't going too bad, no real craves as such. To be honest I have been lurking about on here for a bit mentally preparing myself! The help and advice from all you guys is excellent, the only weak link in my quit is me! Well I'm going to change that, feeling positive about it all, the time has come to quit once and for all!

Very pleased to meet you Jim and welcome back.

You sound like me 3 months ago. I've muddled through with lots of help from the good people on this forum. The early days were pants but it will get better and it really is worth it.

Wishing you lots of luck and a Happy and smoke-free New Year.

Pleased to meet you too Sally :)

Very well done on your quit, 3 months is really great going! The folks on here are a great help and the inspiration and support is fantastic. That's why I have come back, albeit with my tail between my legs somewhat! Going to make it stick this time, we have all got to get this beat!

Welcome home Jim! (In fact, I feel a song coming on- 'Jimmy, oh Jimmy, oh Jimmy Black, it's good to have you back' :D)

It's lovely to hear you've remounted the horse and I will be cheering you onwards to permanent freedom from the Demon Nic. I have a feeling this is going to be your year. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and the days, weeks and months will take care of themselves. Before you kniow it you'll be banging on the door of the Penthouse. :)

Do keep posting so we can share the ups and downs (not too many I hope) of your journey.

Hi Karri, thank you for your welcome and best wishes :) Yup still down here, hopefully not going to have another disastrous year. Ahh well, can't dwell on the past! Hope all is well with you and your quit :)

Hey Tea and TG :)

I will be the strongest link (fingers and everything else crossed!), and I will succeed this time! Well I will do my damn best. Just got to get past the boredom, been drinking tea for England today. Trying to have a dry January as well, now that will be tough ;)

Aww bless your heart Skiddaw :)

Thank you so much for your welcome back and such kind positive words.

I am determined to mount that horse and ride into a smoke free future! I will keep on posting, god knows I will need the support. I can feel the head wobbly stage starting already, it won't make me cave, but it isn't pleasant to feel all dodgy. Ahh well, it won't last too long, and a small price to pay for getting smoke free. Feel so damn determined this time!

Thank you once again :)

Cheers Karri, last year was a bit of a nightmare, but onwards and upwards now!

Thank you for your kind words :)

Hey Donna :)

Déjà Vu indeed! But we can both do it, just got to knuckle down and soldier on. Hope your quit is going ok. Freedom Fighters MkII sounds like a plan!

Cheers Max! :)

Got to make it this time, my life is passing by and I can't let this vile addiction keep its hold over me. No mistakes, no excuses, not one puff ever. This time I'm all in!

Thanks for all your support and positive words. Knowing what the internet is like, it amazes me that this forum exists and is so full of such positive, wonderful, helpful people :) Thank you all for welcoming me back (again) and for your encouragement. I'm moving into day 3 on no sleep and feeling like crap (physically), but energised knowing that there is no way I am going to smoke!

Cheers :)
