37 and 1/2 days, but really ......who's counting?

Just popped in for a quick hello and to make sure everyone is behaving themselves:rolleyes: Just In case anyone was wondering or actually even noticed:) I've haven't been around for a few days - but no worries I'm doing ok and actually miss you guys!!!!

Its been a bit of a weird patch for me right now, and I just needed to re-direct my focus on some things. None of it is quit related, its just real life stuff that happens whether someone smokes or not - but, Yep I'm still holding my own!! Come hell or high water, I will continue on this path of being a non-smoker:) I love it....

I'm sure to be back to posting soon.…as life always has a way of sorting itself out...right? :rolleyes:

Happy what ever day it is, guys and stay strong...xxx

I haven't been in here for a while either Que. Glad you are still going strong with your quit :) I'm doing really well too, love being a non smoker, even my crazed eating is starting to fade a wee bit and 4lbs dropped off last week without me noticing, we'll be able to give those elastic waists back soon hopefully :)

Aaah Ananke - totally glad to hear from you!!!!:):):) Well done - Isn't it grand to be a non-smoker, and congrats on ditching those 4 lbs without even noticing no less!!!

I have decided the eating frenzy has also become a thing of the past, and I'm just now starting to assess the damage - and yeah its doable and those elastic waist pants will serve as a huge incentive. for me......Talk soon:)...xx

Thanks Hattie - the hugs were definitely welcome - and you either made me blush or I just had a hot flash not quite sure which:-) ..xx

Yeah - kind of worried about Celestine too, it has been a while since she posted...

Hi Que

Been missing myself, life gets in the way. Missed you all too, don't like when I can't keep up with what's going on. You're doing great Que really amazing - and losing count is a good sign eh. Hope things get better in general life but smoking wise you're flying x

Hi AnnMarie xx Good to see you :) :)

Good to see you too AnnMarie - and yes life in general does tend to get in the way at times, and keeping up is hard - but loosing track of certain things once in a while, is not really so bad - just praying I don't loose too much of it.... xx

Gosh, Que, and Ananke in one post! Glad you're both going strong - I too have been paying only flying visits.

Que, I love that you're adding half days :) xx

The half days are certainly a throw back from being a kid, when 12 ½ was so much better than 12. I've grown up a bit since then and wouldn't be caught dead doing that with my age now - but I'm totally okay with using it in my quit ….:-)

Thanks everyone I'm actually doing ok, Its my husbands Dad - He is 87 and has been hospitalized 4 times in the last 3 weeks, but back in hospital again now. Has some fluid in his lungs and kidney problems. Doctors aren't sure of the prognosis at this point.

Mother-in-law is pretty much a basket case and causing my poor husband some extra stress that he doesn't really need right now. So when his cup runneth over – yep, you get the idea:-)) Its just all so very sad ........

Family is starting to arrive from out of town and many of them will be staying with us:eek: really won't have much time to think about smoking, so I guess that's probably a good thing.....but I have a sneaky feeling my alcohol consumption is likely to increase quite a bit – maybe I should just considered that, as an added bonus:rolleyes:

Sorry to hear this Que - I second what Hattie said - we all love you and you're ace. Good luck with everything xx

Oh yeah!!!

Hang in ther Que, thinking about you in this sad moment, it's going to be tough but you are a strong person , if alcohol takes over for a little bit that will be covered as well when the time is right, do what you feel is right at this time, keep strong thinking about you xx
