hello all

Today, 03:07 PM

Hello everybody. As I can now have access to the forum I can update people. My name is rob and I decided to quit smoking on the 30th. I have been a smoker for the last 20 years and have failed to quit several times in the past. I am determined to give up for life now hence my username. I am finding it very difficult to keep my mind on other things as the nicdemon keeps on at me. I am humbled by reading other posts the last several days and this has definitely helped, and as I have read so much, am trying to take things a day at a time, or even a crave at a time. I will update when I have time and will keep on reading other posts to help me through. Finally I want to get to know about these rooms and this penthouse party is all about

Thanks for all the welcome posts everybody, having this kind of support will make it much easier to be a lifer. I have gone CT, and as some motivation I will be entering into a half marathon in march and will start training tomorrow

Greetings Rob, good choice on the quit and best of luck with the training. I've dug my trainers out of the back of the cupboard and having a bit of a go on the running. I never quite got round to it when on the smokes, and find it a good distraction now

Yeah I bet it is the same one

Hi Rob :)

Sorry it has taken so long for you to have permission to post. As Max says, there are some teething problems with the current format (:rolleyes:) and it is indeed lovely to see you here with us at last. Many congratulations from me on your mighty achievement so far- if you keep this up you'll be shooting through the rooms like the star you clearly are. :D

As Karri says, I'm running the Reading half-marathon in March. Which one are you running? We really must compare notes. Bet you're heaps faster than me...:o

(edited to say: Ooh! From your profile you're a fellow Readingite! Looks like we're in the same half-marathon then. Cool!!)

Hi skiddaw, yeah it will be the reading half marathon in march. I thought there was only one. I will start training tomorrow, so unless you run like a tortoise you're probably the hare! Do you run normally? I will also have to get my head around all of these rooms as well. It probably doesn't help that I have only been on here on my mobile.

Just thinking, has been first day back at work today and although I have been craving alot of the day/had smoking one alot on my mind, I have still stuck at it (I normally smoke several at work), anyway I'm rambling now!

Hi Andrew. Yes before I started smoking/in my early years of smoking I used to run all the time but since then I haven't so it will be good to see how unfit I have got!

Hi Rob, welcome to the forum and pleased to see you are at last able to post. Very well done on your quit so far.

I took up running again after I quit. Definitely help beat a few craves in the early days. Good luck with the half-marathon.

Hi Sally, good to speak to you finally without bring limited to no. Of characters lol! I feel so determined to go the whole way and if it means I get fitter along the way then I suppose it can't be a bad thing?
