Good morning everyone,

First of all thanks to Pete and sinfree for last nights comments,got a lump in my throat. (no pete it wasn't your lumpy gravy :D )

Tuesday and bright and sunny at the moment.

All you members who are just starting on your quit journey why not do like the picture says and make a list of reasons to stop smoking and the benefits you will gain. When you get a craving look at the list.I know Pete did that to help him. or simply bob on this site and have a chat or a moan we don't mind. So stay positive and have a lovely Tuesday. :)

  • Good morning Jillygirl and everyone,

    Not been on for a while as I've been baby sitting for a few days, to say It tired me out is the understatement of the century :D :D Nairn is gorgeous but demands so much attention I never got a minute to myself.

    Jillygirl I agree with Pete and sinfree, you are an amazing woman :) Making up a list of reasons to stop smoking is a great idea, I had one too, it's still on my fridge as a reminder, it really helped me stay focused.

    I hope you all have a great smoke free, craving free day :)

  • Hi Sue, lovely to hear from you. How I envy you with Nairn. I love my two granddaughters to bits , but at 12 years ad 8 years old they are a bit big to cuddle in your arms. However I do get plenty of Grannie hugs, thats what the eldest calls them. :) Thank you for your comment but I aren't any different to you and the others your all amazing . well busy afternoon coming up got roped in to helping (not playing) bingo. as Miranda say oh! such fun. :D :D

  • Hi Jillygirl, I bet you'll always get granny hugs no matter how old they get :) :)

    Have a great afternoon bingo helping :) I'm looking forward to playing games with Nairn, that's if my body is up to it :D :D

  • Enjoy give Nairn a grannie hug from me. :)

  • Will do :) I'm having a few days rest before I see him again, I need to build my strength up :D :D

  • Good evening (again) you all !!

    Sorry for the silence but I have been getting out and getting on with life !!! Most of the time stressed to hell !!?

    Yeah - what a trip this is though and it is still all change as my lungs, throat & mouth etc still try and recover !!

    What flipping damage that .... smoking did !! Taste & smell still coming back and sometimes I get a smell that I haven't had for 37 years or so, that might then bring in a memory of something I hadn't thought about in all this time.

    I am not out of the woods so to speak but I remain so very very grateful that I have QUIT and stay a NON SMOKER whatever happens.

    Very best wishes to you all
