Where have I been?

And I would firstly like to renounce support of my acquired team in the World Cup (Brazil) after the shocking display of Sunday league football during the tournament. Next, yes I haven't done much in the way of posting as I have spent a couple of weeks in hospital, so it is safe to say, no chance of a crafty fag in ICU! This has given me a fantastic chance to review what I consider to be my personal life choices, and where smoking is concerned it truly is a case of life verses death. As potential non smokers, us quitters try to brighten our plights by highlighting the physical attributes of giving up smoking, or tending to the emotional downfalls of withdraw and panic, and that is absolutely the correct way to go about our efforts. However, in a short space of time when the (assumed) best footballing nation in the world has had to lay bear all of its shortfalls, the time has to come where the old firm completely disappears to make way for a new generation. The death of the old guard, and the emergence of the new invigorated life.

Now is not the time for me to play boring, out of date, tiki-taka Brazilian football.

Now is the time to be.....Tottenham Hotspur. (I was never going to say any other team was I? I am Pspurs for a reason after all! And we may rarely win titles, but we continue to push!)

  • There's no doubt that a trip to ICU is a pretty solid motivator to quit smoking!

    I truly hope you are happy with your personal life choices especially regarding smoking (or not) and that the causes of your admission to ICU are responding to treatment. Enjoy your resurrection!

    However I may have doubts about your choice of football teams! :D

  • Hey Pspurs, sorry to hear you've been very poorly, hope you are on the mend :)

    Your right about brazil but Spurs?????? Didn't you have money on Argentina to win ? :)

  • Oh yes and still have! Always a way to be a winner, even with a side bet on the Germans!

  • Glad to see you covering all bases :)

  • Aup Pspurs, sorry to hear you've had a stay in the ICU :( but it may have been a God send to you, to help you through your quit :)

    I wish you a speedy recovery pal and you try to stay strong and focused on your quit eh :) You come a shouting if you need any help, cos we will try to help you if we can :)

    Hmmm, Spurs eh :P :P naghhhhhhh up the flippin Rams :D :D :D

  • l will stay loyal to Brasil..after all l hate football...the ONLY reason l have ever watched it was because of Pele so l will live in the hope that one day they WILL be great again. Apart from that l am 13 smokefree weeks today and feeling pretty good except from the rotten cold l am trying to get over.

  • Hi Sue Congratulations on 13 weeks that's a marvellous achievement :)

    When I first read your post I thought you said that you watched Brazil because of Pete...... couldn't quite get my head round why you would watch football because of Monky.... DOH! :D

    Hope you get rid of your cold soon hun :)

  • Thanks droopyJ , felt really rough on saturday, slept from about 10am til 2.30 and what did my poor hubby say " why did'nt you go upstairs,l had to go and sit in the other room because of your snoring" well excuse me...full of 'cold' feeling so weak and tired and thats what he comes out with oh well now l know how much sympathy to give him when he needs it, he never even offered to get me a cup of tea...nothing...l hardly ate all day, did'nt have the energy to go and get something for myself, he'd had his food and thats all that mattered.Well l'm feeling a bit better now so have the energy to have a bit of a rant! sorry! One thing l did notice, that saturday feeling so bad, l needed a lot less nicotine gum, not quite sure why.

  • You rant away girl..... blokes are pretty useless when it comes to us girls being under the weather (Monky don't even bother...... you weren't in that group coz you send out lovely hugs ) :P

    Don't know about you but when I smoked, I never normally wanted one when feeling under the weather.... so maybe its the same re the lozenges ?? Your body obviously needed the sleep, its all part of the healing process :)
