Good evening lady's and gents :) in 1hrs time 22.30 hrs I will be 1 year smoke freeeeeeeeeee yayyyyyy I made it :) let me tel you that I really never thought I would of made it to the penthouse and so did others to , but I proved to myself and others that being strong and willing you can fight your demons , my journey was one hell of ride with its ups and downs :( after joining this forum I found it a great help 😜 you guys are all fighters from day one thank you for letting me be part of your journeys as well as my own πŸ‘I had smoked over 38 years costing around Β£ 65,000 πŸ’·πŸ’·crazzzzzzzy money up in smoke .

Looking back I can remember my first day of my quit , God I so needed a fag fix when I bought a latte in the morning 😭 but I got through it lol days after we're just as bad so I decided to go on a 12 week patch course , it did help me 😜then it was cold budgie for me

πŸ’ͺlol so as time went on in my quit I put on over a stone in chocolate blubber πŸ°πŸ©πŸŽ‚πŸ§πŸ©πŸ‘…I'm now back to the size I need to be 😜I've done many hard things in my life , joining the army , doing marathons , gun runs , tough guy competitions , and many more but giving up smoking was mentally challenging but hey ho I'm ready to join old timers in that PENTHOUSE :)🍻🍻🍻 once again MANY THANKS πŸ‘your all fighter don't forget that πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ŠπŸ»

  • Hey Telboy61 - think this has been the quickest journey to the Penthouse I can recall from any member since I joined, all because you plodded along quietly in the background and just got on with it - I have enjoyed your out of the blue updates throughout your journey over the last 12 months and really delighted for you. I remember like yesterday your first post the picture you put up of you in the gym, you looked in great shape then so can only imagine how you look now :O

    Its going to be some party in 20 minutes time and a real asset to have you with us in the Penthouse tonight - one for ya!
