Merry Christmas everyone!!

This will be my first smoke-free Christmas in 48 years. I didn't ever think I could quit but 9 months on I am so glad I did.

For anyone early on or just starting their quit.....hang in there, you CAN do it! Stay focused, take it one hour, one day at a time. With each day you'll become stronger, until there comes a time when you won't even think about smoking anymore. And that freedom amazing!!!

Merry Christmas everyone, peace and joy to you all.

You're welcome Roisin. And thank you for the Christmas adverts and songs you posted, loved them all.

Went to see The Nutcraker yesterday, and it was absolutely magical. It also dawned on me that I was sitting in a packed concert hall for 3+ hours and I didn't have to worry about a hacking cough. Nor did I need to run outside during the interval for a fix, and then have to slink back to my seat reeking of smoke. Here's to Freedom!!!

Christmas wishes xxxxx

Exmo, Karina123... Thanks for replies, and huge well done to you both, you've got this!

I think determination to keep all that we have gained back is key. It's too hard won to give it up, and I don't ever want to go back there!

Happy New Year everyone and here's to 2018 smoke-free,
