Good morning everyone,

Well I hope everybody is ok, and not hiding from this site. Yesterday was very quiet,

however as long as people are at least reading the posts its a good thing.

Quitting is not the easiest of things to do, many of of us struggle, however if your patient with yourself you will overcome the habit. Like they say patience is a virtue.

Any problems just post them on here , we will do our best to help.

If you want to keep it private, post a message to Emjay or Eye or Jarvo our quit support advisors. Just go into your profile and then click on the messages.

Thursday and its getting near to the weekend again, yet another week on the quitting calendar :)

Just think all the money you are saving by quitting. You could save it up and treat yourself for christmas. :) I am sure someone will work out what 4 months of ciggy money adds up to.

Have a lovely day. xx

    Best wishes


  • Hi Jonathan , I am sure today will be a better day for you.


  • Hi Jilly, Jonathan and all,

    I've not been on here much lately worried about my brother still he's not been up and he's never been in when i've gone to his house, between his mental illness and not being able to hold on to his money he often runs out of food he must be malnourished by now, i've phoned everybody i can think of and i'm getting no help anywhere :( i just don't know where to turn now. Sorry about the moan everyone but it was that or smoke 20 cigs and i don't want to do that after all this time, it's been 11 months now since i quit, which i only managed with all you lovely peoples help

    I hope today is great for you Jonathan, your doing brill :)

    I love your pic jillygirl, it's so true, it is never too late to quit, and with patience it is possible, I know that helped me, along with nrt and all on here :)

    I hope you all have a great day whatever your up to :) x

  • Sorry to hear about your brother Sue, you must be very worried now. It's awful when you have a constant niggling worry that just won't go away, I know how you feel. I'm same as you and have to keep telling myself that even if we smoked, the exact same problem would still be there but we'd just keep puffing away hoping it would make everything OK but obviously it never does.

  • Hi Sue, Sorry your still having problems with your brother. Have you tried his doctors for help and support. I know it isn't an easy one this sort of problem. Even your own doctor may help. Hope you soon get sorted. If I think of anything else I will pm you. take care. xxx

  • Thanks Jillgirl, i appreciate that, what a kind person you are :) x

  • Hi Everyone,

    been a busy day here for me so sorry I haven't been on here.

    Sue, sorry to hear about your brother, must be such a worry for you, jillygirls advice is good.

    Jonathan hope your day has been easier.

    I will pop on here this evening if it lets me....couldn't get on the site last night.


  • Hello Eye, so good to see you , if you have a problem getting on site later just shout of Pete. He will come running to help you.


  • Just a quick comment , If Veecatz is reading this while starting her chemotherapy. We all wish you well. Keep strong and focused. You kicked old nic in to touch. now kick big fat Mr C. into touch. you can do it. :) xxxxx


  • Well. Went out at lunch time for a stroll as I'd already eaten my lunch and I wanted a puff of my e-cig. Was already surprised to find one of my work colleagues come in this morning carrying a pink e-cig, apparently she's been using it 2 weeks and is doing fine. But then at lunch time she was walking back down the road puffing away on her 'pen', I'm walking up with mine and along comes another colleague who was smoking last week and she had an e-cig. Lots happen in between when you only work 2 days a week. So there we all are stood on the corner discussing flavours, strengths etc and our other non smoking friend felt quite left out. She's never smoked, said she might bring an empty biro out with her tomorrow, as she feels a bit out of it :D

    The other girl from our ex band of merry smokers is on holiday this week, but I know for a fact she won't want to be left out and since she already has an e-cig and was using it up til a few weeks ago, I'm sure she'll be resurrecting it. So that's a good do isn't it. That means there are very few smokers left at our place and even one of them, (he's got to be at least a 30 a day man) was asking me the other week about lozenges and whether to try them just to cut down a bit. He's on holiday too but you never know, when he comes back and finds all these e-cig vapour people he might have a go himself.

  • That's brilliant , local newsagent will be selling out of biros if you all carry on. Just shows you only need a little encouragement. well done to all. :)


  • Ha ha jillygirl, how do you find all those funny pics , that one of Pete really made me giggle

  • Probably cos I am just as silly. My granddaughter who is 11yrs. says she loves me to bits and I am so funny. Not everyone has a granny that makes them laugh. My daughter just tells me off for being daft. :D :D :D

  • Ok Pete, if you manage to call in. I have solved your problem for er in doors nagging you. Monkey the cat I should say your cat, is going to take your place . She wont know the difference. :D :D :D :D

  • Nite nite Sue, enjoy your shower and try to get some kip tonight eh, and am sure your brother will turn up :) :) Sweet dreams to you too Sue, take care gal :) xxxx

  • It was none of my doing, eeek, would never dare suggest anyone stop smoking, nothing worse than an ex smoker preaching to those who are happy to carry on. haha I always swore I would never be a born again non smoker, mind you its nice when they come in from outside smelling all sweet instead of yukky. Night Sue. Hope you manage to sleep tonight :)
