I believe it’s nearly a year!

I’m, not over sure but think I may be near the one year mark, now historically in my ever so many failed practice attempts at quitting, I would have just thought I can not do this it’s impossible for me, and you guessed it started again.

It is without doubt a clear situation, of getting to the point, when you just have to keep going, now for me at least alcohol, was not a issue, coffee was neither a issue, And at times my other half was not a issue, it was the thought of can life ever be normal, and then a light bulb moment, it’s not normal to put poison in your mouth light it and in hale, and then I was up and running, eating the full contents of my fridge ( that’s just breakfast) being unhappy, not knowing why.!!!!!!! Crying not know why!!!!

Was it all worth it ABSOLUTELY,Today I have fleeting thoughts of smoking, and I guess as smoking is a addiction they might happen now and again.but I can say smoking, helps nothing , do I need to smoke, NO, do I want to smoke NO..

I can honestly say it’s the best decision of your life, it’s was mine, and sure it will be yours just keep going, that’s all you need to do.

Yes Tracey3 you certainly are very near your 1 year milestone and joining us in the Penthouse, we have waited with huge anticipation for this day to come and will be some party (23 January)- hope you have a few tunes lined up for us Nozmo and Hercu stocks up the beer and catches some South African fish for me to cook :P

But......seriously, very well done, you are a prime example of never giving up on stopping, there was some big and small bumps in the road and you survived life's difficult curve balls thrown at you, I am so proud, as am sure so many others here....congratulations!

PS Your savior was definitely myself and Nozmo burning down 'The Corner Shop' :D

Ha ha, I was just going to suggest that Tracey gets the beers in from the infamous shop. She can stride in there with confidence these days.

Thankyou roisin, Nozmo, I’ve no intentions of reverting back to the devil deman, and am convinced, had cigarettes been introduced today, it would be a band substance.

Every days new, and who knows what it will bring, but smoking is not in the picture

Thankyou

Well done Tracey. If introduced today, pure tobacco might be legal but not the product with all the additives.

Almost the weekend.
