Happy Friday Everyone :D

Although a tad frosty this morning, it is actually quite a nice bright day here in Liverpool.

For those of you who are entering your first weekend as a non-smoker, make sure you have a good decent plan in place to deal with any triggers that you may face. There are plenty of hints and tips that have been shared already, but please don't be shy on giving us a shout should you need us :-)

A big congratulations to Surrendertown who is 5 weeks quit today - Well done to you :-)

I've tasked myself today with making a start on updating our Wall of Winners list, so if any of you are reading this can you please check the latest list and see if your details are correct?

Here's the link;


Today's picture reminds me of waiting for a bus.... :-/ :/ :D :D

Right, time to pop the kettle on - not for a cup of tea though, for a lemsip!

Afternoon EmJay

its been a long time since last posting.

since then we have had our holiday and been home for a month now and we certainly got back to reality with a bang!

Had some ciggys back in August when out for a bbq, I was driving so couldnt use the being drunk excuse! Boy the gave me the biggest hangover the next day.

been a horrid week here for weather. HUGE thunder/lightening storm at 10pm on Tuesday night and no power for 18 hours!

I can safely say I have never been so scared in my life. The lightening hit a pole close to us and ruined the transformer hence no power! Lots of people had their phones flying off the walls and sparks flying out of the sockets, thankfully it didnt happen here!

lots of new members on here now but its nice to see a few familiar names

Hey Sarah,

How lovely to hear from you :D

So you managed your family trip away to Florida then, all paid for with your cigarette money. That's amazing I bet the kids absolutely loved it :-) I remember when you first started saving. Doesn't time fly? So, apart from your blip at your August BBQ, you are fast approaching your 12 month smokefree anniversary :-)

I was up in Scotland (not as high up as you) on Monday, back Wednesday, there was a huge hail storm and quite a frosty morning. Nothing as bad as what you have experienced though eh?! I have to say though, there was a gigantic beautiful moon in the sky Monday night, biggest I've ever seen :-)

We have lots of new members as you can see. Pete is working today but will be on his usual night shift later and I'm sure Andi will pop on too. JillyGirl is just in the middle of moving home again but keeps everyone out of trouble, usually by bribing them all with online treats ;-)

We managed out trip away and gave the credit card a good bashing, will be saving up for the next year yet I doubt, xmas fast approaching and the dishwasher giving up the ghost when we got home from hols! Only can happen to us lol

Good early evening everyone

Just wanted to say "Hello" and report that all is well !!

Not smoking anyway which is the most important thing.

Well done to everyone and looks like good news is coming from all directions.

Hiya, I've recorded loads of stuff for when it is a rubbish viewing night! And..... I know I know but I watch I'm a celebrity, know it is rubbish but it is light and frothy which is what I need right now having blue moods! I'm lifting from Navy to a lighter blue though! :) Have a lovely weekend. :)
