It's good to pop back in from time to time to see old friends still fighting the good fight.

Hi roneo, good to see you too. Hope you and the lovely Lily are doing well😘

G'day Briar,

Trundling along, happily smoke free. Still fighting the battle of the bulge but heading in the right direction. Poor Lily has been suffering with vertigo for the past week. Having lived an almost illness free life to this point, I think her anxiety only makes it worse.

Sending healing hugs to Lily and hope she feels better soon. A friend of mine suffers this too so I know how distressing this is. Go well my friend and take care of each other👍🏼😘


Thanks Ickytoots, its amazing how we can still come back as friends after all this time. This site is very special to lots of us. :) xxxx


Wow 5 years is great - thats an amazing achievement. Can I ask, do you ever get any urges anytime at all in regards to smoking (even nostalgic) or do you feel completely detached from it now?

Five years smoke🚭free is amazing Icky 👏👏👏 well done...... love your hair colour! 😀😘 Xx


Hi Icky, lovely to see you and must say you’re looking very well👏🏼

Thanks for popping in and huge well done to you👏🏼😘

Maaaate! That is one shock of red locks!😀 5 years! Hasn't that time flown! I remember that first couple of weeks, each day dragging like it would never end. Then, a few months after quitting, having that luxurious sleep in without nicotine deprivation forcing me out of my slumber. Anyway, happy anniversary.

Thanks roneo❤️ you were my biggest help threw it all,, 5 years and to many more

Only yesterday I was playing golf with a smoker friend. Usually, I "tolerate" smokers having been there done that!.....

On this occasion I savoured the moment he lit a cigarette & it was a stark reminder that, as much as I'm over the addiction, the senses still respond to the stimulus of past "pleasures". I am so glad that we are both smoke free.
