MONDAY - DAILY CHAT - 09/06/2014


Well it's back to work for me today with a great deal of trepidation. Having said that, if there's one thing I've learnt from this journey it's to face the fear and do it anyway :)

Today I'm heading to work with pretty much no nicotine in my system, it's going to be very interesting and I'll admit it's a bit scary BUT buried somewhere deeply in my handbag is a pack of mini lozenges for emergencies, and I have to do this at some point so why not today :)

Actually it's quite exciting, like a little adventure - this could be fun!!! I am now feeling positive and looking forward to the challenge -

What ever challenges you face today, stay positive and be happy and remember NOPE - you can do this! :) :) :) xx

  • Good Morning One and All :-)

    I've only been lurking behind the scenes over the weekend as I had way too much see through milk on Friday evening - resulting in a whole day lost on Saturday :o :o I had a whole 'never-again' day!

    However, I went out again last night to Liverpool Echo Arena and 'got on down' with Dolly Parton :D :D She was absolutely fantastic and I would well recommend that if anybody gets the chance to see this lady, then do it :-)

    Chrissie: I hope you are having fun with the lovely Danielle :-) You were up and about really early before work today - If you need your lozenges, then don't be shy on using them :-) Stay strong, you can do this ;-)

    Al: glad to hear you had a lovely day yesterday at the wedding, I hope your heads not too bad today in work though as an after effect :o

    Mindermummy: you are now fast heading towards completion of your first smokefree quarter of a year, you and Chrissie :D :D Really am proud of you both - The time seems to have flown by - I hope you feel that way too :-)

    Briarwood: seems like there were all kinds of almost nakedness talk and antics going on here yesterday - A bit of sunshine and we have most bits and pieces of ourselves out for show, I was as amused reading as you :-) :-)

    Kaprin: how is little Sophie Esme doing? Grab as many baby snuggles as possible :-)

    DroopyJ: Congratulations on your new shiny badge of 3 months! I bet you are well made up :-) Well done to you :-) We're eally proud of your achievement :D :D Sending lots of stress free vibes for a carefree week in that there workplace ;-)

    Smokefreeandme: I hope you are feeling more positive today towards how well you are doing and how far you have come. Using whatever aid to help you to quit is the best way for you and means that you are smokefree :-)

    Kronoskeylock: Martin, thank you for posting your thoughts through pictures, this is what works for you and I'm sure there are many others in a similar place :-)

    Sue930: Now past your 8 week mark and settling in very nicely to your 9th week :-)

    Mrssunnyside: Congratulations on achieving your Race for Life 5k yesterday :-)

    Pete, as always - loving your fun side - you really do keep us entertained - Lets just make sure your support doesn't get lost throughout it - You are as much as a member needing help as the next person. I have my beady eye on you and will always be lurking over your shoulder - in a positive way ;-)

    Surrendertowin: Ray, just wanted to send hope and prayers along your way for you, Kate and her family xx

    gibbers: Now that you had that 'curiosity' puff - remember the NOPE rule - Not One Puff Ever! Glad it didn't taste that nice for you :-)

    Andi: Well done to you on your 15 miles yesterday - Although I reckon you probably found it to be really easy! Don't forget - it's your de-hairing day today ;-)

    Veekatz: Big waves to you :-)

    Pspurs: Having read your post about using your e-cig more to just have something in your hand.. How about you try carrying a pen around with you too? You may be able to slowly but surely make the swap then? Just a thought :-)

    TerryOR: Keep marching forward - you are doing brilliantly. Please also continue to share some more of your fantastic paintings with us :-)

    Anyone heard from Sin lately? :o :o

    Big waves to everyone else looking in :-)

    Wow, it was the morning when I first started typing all of the above!!

    Latest news on our lovely JillyGirl is that she is now at home and not too happy that she has to rest up - She is under the watchful eye of Nurse Sarah and so I'm sure she'll have to do just as she is told :D :D
