New Room

I'm plodding on with this quit and yesterday had my own mini triumph as I made it to the month 4 room and I like it here. It is a good place to stay for a couple of months and adjust to life as an ex-smoker and reflect on what I've learnt the past 3 months.

It's not been easy but I've taken baby steps to make it here. Mr Nicotine still appears from time to time when I least expect it but he is now challenging a stubborn and defiant toddler.

Congratulations Sally! You are doing so well! Save me a space in there for 9 days time xxx


Great stuff Sally, and the new room sounds good


Flipping well done to you Sally- what a splendid way to start the new year!

Tell you what, those months are fairly flying past aren't they? You'll be at Halfway House before you know it.

Many congratulations from me and may you & Tea have wonderful bun, biccie and Bucks Fizz sessions...:)


Well in Sally, although everyone's different I found the 3-4 month period extremely challenging, well done to you and you are one step closer to the next mile stone :)


Well done Sally x


Just to say I do hope your very proud, it takes true grit at times this quitting, but your well on your way.



Thank you everybody for your kind words.

I'm sure there will be challenging days ahead but reading (and re-reading) posts here helps me massively. I don't want to smoke again. I've learnt my lesson (twice) the hard way falling for the 'one won't hurt' line. I just need to keep my head together and if I'm stressed or upset to realise that a cigarette is not going to make anything better. It's just an added complication.

I have great company in this room already and am enjoying the hospitality. Dolores it's great to hear you sounding so positive again and very much looking forward to you joining us in 9 days.

A lot of posts on the forum compare quitting to climbing a mountain. Well thank you to those ahead of me who reach down with a helping hand when I need it and to those who quit after me who give me a gentle push in the right direction.
