Daily chat: Sunday 2nd December 2012

Good morning everyone.

It's another beautiful frosty, sunny morning again - I say sunny but at 8.15 it's only just now starting to appear over the rooftops. 8-)

It's the first of Advent today and I noticed last night that some people have now started putting up their Christmas lights.

Whilst writing the date I realised that it's now 7 months since I quit smoking - didn't think I'd ever be saying that in my whole life so I say BIG THANK-YOU to all of you out there who have helped me along the rocky road. I do feel like an ex-smoker now but temptations will always be put in my way so I'd like to stay and try and help out on here wherever I can.

Whatever you're doing today and you've already quit - stay strong - and don't forget to come on here if you need some extra help.

Have a good day. :)

  • Good Morning Andi, a BIG WELL DONE on reaching 7months, that's amazing, you must be so proud of yourself, as we are :) :) I'm glad your staying on here, it wouldn't be the same without you :)

    how are you feeling this morning, your up early after your night out, i'd still be comatose :D :D, hope you had a great time :)

    I'm away to get my morning cuppa will be back in a bit :) xx

  • Morning Sue and thanks for that. :) Well I don't do exciting nights out any more (did I ever? :o ) ;-) It was dinner with some friends followed by card school. We have a bit of a laugh and play Newmarket for pennies and have done it occassionally for years. :)

  • Hi Andi, that's a bit like me then, I can't get passed midnight without nodding off

    vecto.rs/1024/vector-of-a-c... :D :D

  • Aup Sue, I hope your well :)

    As for you saying that you cant get passed midnight without noddin, dont think i could get to midnight gal :D :D

    Love the pic :) :)

  • Hi Pete, what you up to, i'm watching xmas films and drinking hot chocolate, gonna put the tree up later :D :D

  • Hi Sue, love your new pic by the way :) :D

    Just wondering whether to change mine to a more erm wintry pic or not :o :|

    You putting your tree up today then ?!! I've got my table to finish sanding and then stain it and varnish it, so will be busy in my garage for a bit :)

    You enjoy that hot chocy drink gal :) :)

  • Hi Pete,

    Thanks i saw that pic and loved it too, i'm trying to get into the Christmas spirit, thought putting my tree up would help :)

    Looks like you have a busy day ahead of you, hope you get your table finished :)

  • Hi Andi,

    A soooooooooooooper well done to you gal, that is just fantastic :) :) 7 months quit and yes i would say that you are now an EX SMOKER :) :) and as for us helping you along the way, I tell you Andi, you have helped me tremendously over the last few months :) :)

    You are one hell of a lovely, thoughtful, helpful and kind Lady, and I for one would love you to stay on this site to help others to quit, erm and me eh :o :)

    Take care now :) :)

  • Good evening Sue, Pete and everybody else.

    Crikey, I guess the Christmas dash has started as it's been so quiet on here today. Hope you all had a good day and achieved what you wanted. :)

  • Hi John, sorry you're like that about Sundays but I know what you mean. I went out for a walk with some friends this morning. My big problem with them is that we agree to go out early. She then says 10.30, have to wait around for her til 11 then she has to do all sorts of other stuff whilst out so back home at 2 for a really late lunch and the day's just wasted for me as can't get motivated to start doing anything by then and I think that's another day that I haven't done this, that or the other! :o :(

    Have you considered getting into some kind of fitness?

  • So you wouldn't fancy swimming or cycling or anything? - it might be good to meet up with some other people. :)

  • John please come back to us, we need you as much as you need us pal :) :)

    Please talk to us :) :)

  • John you cannot protect yoursef from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness. I feel your really down today and I,m sorry, Andi,s idea of getting out and meeting other people is a good idea, it might help you. Try and stay away from smoking as you slipped up last week when you were having a hard time.

    take care


  • Aup John, dont you bother about being late on parade pal, cus its Sunday :) :)

    Sunday is a day of rest, you take it easy :) you do what you feel like doing on a Sunday :)

    John how have your Christmas cards come out, cus i tell you i wish i could make some pal :)

    I know your on a downer today, but we all have it sometimes, :(

    What you have to do is :- pick youself up, and I meannnnnnnnnnnnnnn pick yourself up, shake your flippin head, and snap out of it :) :)

    Just think of your love birds, cus I know they love you John, as I know you love them too :) :) stay with us John, and like Andi says have you tried exercising cus I know it helps me :)

  • Aup, you woken up then? :)


  • Hey flippin Woman you, I will have you know that I've been up for at least an erm erm a long time anyway :P :P :D :D

    PS I will get you back :P :P

  • John you have done so so well, :)

    Ok you had a blip, I've had lots of them :( but what keeps me going is the '' LIGHT '' at the end of that tunnel, the long and hard tunnel I must admit, but being able to beat, no erm ''master'' that cigarette and to tell it ''NO'' i dont need you any more, is the most loveliest thought :) :)

  • Hi all,

    I didn't do much today, i couldn't get motivated either, so i know where your coming from John, but tomorrow is a bright new day, i'll get going then :)

    Went to put my tree up only to discover the stand is broken, and i thought i'd finished my xmas shopping :o :D :D

    i hope you all had a good day :) xx

  • Hi Sue, didn't recognise you with your new identity! Is this your Christmans special? :) I love Pete's and don't think he should ever change it - ok he could put a silly red hat on for Christmas if he really wants to. :|

  • Hi Andi,

  • One calls them clamp ons :D :D

  • You call that nice - 12 hour shifts, 60 hours a week - Sounds a bit Victorian to me, especially when you have to stay on for hours sometimes, isn't it illegal? :o
