Morning Everyone,

I'm not away until tomorrow so may squeeze a few more posts in here and there :D

Have a lovely day today Jillygirl, I think you will just prove to yourself that you can enjoy yourself more than a smoker would as you won't have to nip away for a smoke and miss any of the chit chat or banter that goes on between your family :)

Pete, sounds like you're getting a fair bit of exercise there at your place eh? Glad to hear of your healthy snacks too! Thanks for the order of sunshine 8-)

Speak to you all later :-)


Hi emjay, lunch was lovely really enjoyed it and never thought about those piggies. Also the viewing went well, better vibes than the last one.

You enjoy your holiday. bet you cant wait. miss you . take care and we will try and behave. :)


Hi Emjay, wish I was coming with you - have a fantastic time! 8-)

(And don't bring anything extra back with you!!! :D :D )

Andi x


Hi All. Glad to say I got sorted out at the no smoking clinic yesterday. The counselor was appalled at the behaviour of my pharmacist, put me back on 15mg patches (she said I could go back to 25mg but I'd been OK on the 15s) and also reinstated my inhalators. She also gave me a goody bag with a mug, MP3 sock, trolley coin and other 'smoke free' stuff, which was lovely. I feel great today, relaxed and ready to face the world again. Just gonna take the dog out for a walk and then go to my old pharmacist, take back the nasty patches he gave me, and explain why I won't be returning to him for more so called 'support'. The counselor last night offered to complain on my behalf, but since it's my local pharmacy and I need to go in there for other things, I think it's better for me to deal with it myself. Thanks all for your support and hope you all have a great day! :-)


Hi Finley , glad your sorted out love. glad your feeling relaxed and positive. well done

See youo later. xx


Thanks Jilly I'm really grateful for all the support. I hope I'll be able to return the favour to someone. Still feeling good today. I took the useless itchy patches back to the pharmacist today and explained politely, but VERY firmly, why I wouldn't be returning to him for any further support xx


Aup Finley, nice to see you here again gal :) and i'm so glad that you've got all sorted now and have good feelings too, you keep strong gal.

Speak later.

Pete :)


Eyup pete (that's how we spell it in Yorkshire - although I'm in London, but only since 1988 - confused? Maybe I am!). Thanks so much. I do feel really good today, especially since I went into the pharmacy and handed back the useless patches which I told him from the start I'm allergic to! When I went to the clinic last night the counsellor asked whether I hadn't gone back to tell the pharmacist about it and I told her "Not yet - I didn't want to shout and make a show of meself - but I will", and of course, I did today and told him very firmly the reasons why I'm not going back there. He wasn't happy, and said he was just 'doing it for my good' and I told him it wasn't good for me, so I wouldn't be going back for more. Anyway, getting away from me for a change, I saw someone on here said they hoped you slept - are you doing nights? If you are, I feel for you love! :-)


well done finley, think you gained some confidence last night. stay positive sounds like your doing ok. x :)


Thanks, I will. Now I'm going to eat a HUGE dinner and bread and butter pud and get an early night! Best wishes to all :-)


nite god bless. xx


Hi Finley2012-06-12

I’m really happy you went along to a Stop Smoking Service last night, it’s kept you on track and sounding more positive. Well done you not increasing the patch dosage just make sure you keep using the inhalator as instructed by your Advisor.

Enjoy your walk ;-)

Hi Pete, its fine to call me Claire getting used to all these user names etc is going to confuse me!! Hope you’ve managed to get some sleep.

Speak soon


Hi Claire, yer we can be a bit confusing, we even get cunfused ourselves sometimes :D :D

I managed to get some sleep thankyou, but just cant sleep much during the day, somehow!! :o

Right best get ready for work, speak again soon.

Pete :)


Cheers Claire - the support of other people on here has been fantastic and really made the difference between me caving in and keeping on going :-)

Evening Everyone :-)

Just finishing (starting) a bit of packing I've lots of room spare as I thought I was up to my limit (20kg) and wondered how come I had so much room... I was reading lbs instead of kg! 'shudve gone to Spec Savers!

Andi, I hope everything is okay with you, sometimes we have our :-( days and thats okay, but lets see if we can get you cheered up and have a brighter and easier day tomorrow. Get through today and you'll feel heaps better :-)

Pete, you take care of yourself and don't let these night shifts grind you down, you are doing really, really well and I believe you can do this :-)

Lenne, haven't heard from you today, hope you're okay, I'm sure you are. I bet you're waving those cravings off down yonder somewhere, I hope so :-)

Finley, its great to have you join in the daily chat. You're in the right place for a bit of banter if you're up for it but completely the right site for all the genuine support from others going through, or who have gone through the same :-)

Jillygirl, you are always so positive and im sure this helps everyone here. I should be around early, something to do with going on my jollies so may catch up with you in the morning ;)

I'm sure you'll enjoy getting to know both Claire and Helen. They've heaps of tips and advice to offer and a wealth of knowledge in providing stop smoking support to all those wishing to stop smoking or have help in staying stopped :-)

I'll miss reading through all your banter but will have a catch up when I get back.

I really am looking forward to going away, however on my return I will be chomping at the bit to know how you're all getting on :-)

Big positive vibes being sent to you all. I know you can do it, all in your own time... But why not now? :-)

Together we can do this :-)
