Good morning everyone.

Hope you all had a good nights sleep. its a lovely sunny morning here in Yorkshire, which makes a change. Hope its nice for you.

What plans have you all got today? I am off for a ride out into the dales, have a walk and grab a pub lunch.

Welcome to our community Zoe. Well done for deciding to quit.

We all have our reasons for quitting and this site really helps you stay focused.

If you have any queries just post a question someone usually knows an answer, or gives advice. Emjay is wonderful for helping all of us.

Have a look through the blogs and I am sure you will be joining in with us.

Will catch up later with you all. xx

  • Good morning everyone. I'm afraid it's not sunny down here in Bournemouth and there's rain forecast by 10 o'clock. That's a shame cos I booked myself on to do SkyRide Bournemouth today. It starts at 10 and I'm a fair weather cyclist so won't be going after all. :(

    Emjay said she was getting up early today but no sign of her yet (now 7.30). Well, it is Sunday after all. :)

  • morning andi, shame about your bike ride, never mind i bet you think of something else on the keep fit line. 7.00am - 7.30am is probably the norm to us early birds, even Lenne gets up early most of the time. So seeing its Sunday lets give them all until 9.00am before we start nagging them. I hope to be out and about by 9.30. sunny at the mo but could change. see you later.xx

  • Have decided to go out for a walk locally in a minute and try and plan a running route from home to save me driving every time. Will have to check which type of running shoes to wear as some of it will be either in the woods or on the golf links. :o

  • Oh no - it's started raining already - just have to get my brolly out then! :P

  • Stretch... Yawn..... Stretch again....

    Good morning to you all :-)

    It's sunnyish here, looks like it could brighten up a bit. I think I'll be taking the dog for a nice walk and then heading off into town to pick up a few things, I'm away on holiday next week (Wednesday) so need to make a start at packing 8)

    Andi, have a look at this link... walkjogrun.net/ you just pop in your postcode and you can plan a route or see different routes that have been added by other runners (joggers and walkers) :-)

    Jillygirl, I'm typing fast so I make it before 9.00am ha ha. Have a lovely day today out in The Dales. When Pete pops on and reads this, I reckon he'll book you in a spot if sunshine :-)

  • G'day Pete, well it was at the start of the warm spell when I was on a bit of a downer that I went for a walk along the beach at Alum Chine, paddling in the freezing sea. That was the day I got a bee in my bonnet about going in for a dip! :D :D (which of course we all know I achieved :o :) 8-) )

  • Just found the daily chat after it was mentioned by andi and Sue. Today is first time I've been on here. I'm at the end of week 6 without smoking and, as posted earlier, having a horrible time at the moment. Great to read everyone's posts though, cos I realise none of us is alone in our struggle :o)

  • Aup Finley, you found us then, like we said before we all try to help each other on here, and its a great site to be on!! :) we also have a laugh and a joke sometimes, because we need it !!, just have a look at some of the other daily chats and you will know what i mean :D

    I'm not quite sure what smiley you are trying to do?? ;o)

    Pete :)

  • Hi Finley, I am Jillygirl, pleased to meet you. Sorry its a bit late but been out most of the day. Well done on your 6 weeks without those piggies . Think positive and when you get an urge to smoke look on this site I am sure it helps. It certainly helps me. I am on 9weeks and the 10th coming up. Been smoking since i was 17 . now 63. you do the maths I always get it wrong. Sure pete will work it out for me.

    Anyway love take care . xx :)

  • Hi Jillygirl thanks for your support. I was smoking since age 14 now 51, so another long term addict. This is beginning of week 7 for me. I'm going on holiday in what will be week 12 and planning to use some of my smoking savings as spending money. This place is great, I've had much support already and I only came here yesterday. Thanks again :-)

    Pete :)

  • Pfft Pete I am perfectly *twitch* normal! Nothing *QUACK* wrong with me at all! ;)

    How is everyone today? It's positively pouring here in crummy Worthing but rain is kinda fun!

    I woke up at 4 this morn, then thought meh and went back to bed and woke up properly at 10 which, for me, is very late! I must've needed it though. Feeling positive today, no need to tear at my own throat from craving so that's nice. The chocolate bars probably helped with that (I am very naughty)!

    How was your roast Pete? I love lumpy gravy; it's my favourite kind!!! xxx

  • Hiya Lenne, great you managed a long lie in today - we've been having the same yuk weather further along the coast here. I find it does make me a bit glum and twitchy at times. I started eating my lunch about 11.15 and I'm sure I've eaten my evening's munchie allowance already!! :( Now a roast dinner sounds good - haven't had one of those for ages. Perhaps I'll wangle myself an invite somewhere for next Sunday. :D :D

  • Hi andi we could all meet up and have dinner at petes cos he is a superstar. :) got to boost his ego now and again.

  • Haha can you imagine Pete's face? Hiiiiii here for dins pop the oven on luv! *falls off chair laughing* Epic! xx

  • you got the same sense of humour as me . great isnt it. :)

  • And have you noticed, there's three more women to contend with now - I think he needs some male backup. ;-) Maybe men don't need the same support that we women do! :D :D

  • Andi i can look after my self gal , but!!!!
