Good morning everyone

Welcome to our new people, I hope you find the site helpful in your quit journey. If you have any questions or concerns pop them on here and someone will be about to help 8-)

How is everyone today? How are you feeling heading in to Christmas and the New Year smokefree?

Emjay is off today but I am sure she’ll be on to see how everyone’s doing at some point today.

Speak soon ;-)

Hi Claire

I'm ok today and not feeling at all bothered that Christmas and New Year are coming up as far as not smoking is concerned, well no more than usual anyway :)

It's very quiet on here this morning, I can't believe that I missed saying goodbye to Andi before she left for Norway to see her sister :( I would have liked to have said Merry Christmas to her. She will be back for New Year though so at least I can say Happy New Year to her. I will hopefully be getting my new computer on Wednesday so I wont miss out on things then.

I hope everyone is well and having a good day and not being troubled by cravings. If you are then come and have a good old moan to us :)

Sue, how are you feeling today? I hope you are feeling better and managed to get a good night's sleep.



Oh I meant to say, I've just had a telephone call from Stop Smoking, who organised the Stoptober thing, asking me how I was going on and did I manage to stop smoking. I thought that was nice of them to phone up.


Yoo Hoo Kazz!

Just home from work here, called at the Post Office, I can't believe it's just cost me £8 to post 4 pressies. I think it'll be vouchers next year! I'm not a Scrooge, but that's daft! Thank goodness I only had one parcel to post!

Am having a well deserved coffee break afore I go and clean the bathroom, am washing the tiles down etc...got visitors tonight...

That was lovely of the Stoptober people to ring you!

I may have time to pop on later, depends how quick I can do the bathroom etc...

Have a great day everyone!



Hi Jarvo and Kazz, i just got back from shopping, again, it seems never ending :o :D :D

I got not too bad a sleep, thanks Kazz, it is difficult in the winter when you have arthritis,

I'm sure Andi knows you would have wished her a happy Christmas if you could have, i'm glad your getting a new computer on Wednesday :)

I'm fine with not smoking over Christmas Jarvo, most people i know don't smoke, which helps :) will chat later i'm away to have a cuppa :) x


Hi Chickles,

Sounds like you are a busy lady these days, no rest for the wicked eh? :D That is ridiculous £8 to send one parcel !! and the price of cards at some places is ridiculous as well. I love Christmas but I think some companies really do take advantage. Saying that, there have been quite a lot of sales on lately which is good.

Enjoy cleaning your bathroom :) If you don't get back later then have a lovely evening with your guests, speak soon xxx

Hi Sue, arthritis is horrible, I know a few people with it and I can only imagine what it is like to put up with constant pain day in and day out. It's horrible when you can't sleep properly as well. I hope you get some form of treatment from your Doctor. I think a lot of people think arthritis comes with old age but it can affect anyone at any age, youngsters such as yourself. I even knew a girl who suffered very badly with it when I was at school. You always sound so cheerful as well Sue and support everyone on here, so thank you, you're a star :)



Hi Kazz, a big thank you for calling me a youngster, that made my day :) :D

The pain can get bad and sometimes i want to scream, but mostly i laugh and joke about it cause life is to short to moan, that's the way i look at it anyway :)

I hope you have a great evening Kazz :)

Hi Chickles, sorry i missed your post earlier, you are a busy bee,

i hope you have a good night tonight :), a good old knees up :) :D :D

Aup Sue :)

So hubbies got the comp again then :( :( i hope you've mentioned to him that you could do with one yourself, maybe then he just might get you one for Christmas :) :)


I did say that to him, don't know if it will work though, monies a bit tight at the moment :(

But i can always steal it back when he's not looking, all i have to do is hide his glasses :D :D

Do you not remember you are Grandad and Jillygirl is Gran :) that was spoken about a while ago now right enough, if you did remember them i'm sorry, i'll be having a senior moment :)


I am ever so sorry Sue :( i forgot about it, so its me who had the senior moment gal :( and not you :) :)


You don't need to say sorry Pete :)

If i said sorry everytime i forgot something it would be the only word i'd say :) :D


:D :D :D :D


Hi Claire, its nice to see you gal :) :)

I'm very impressed with you for opening the Daily chat gal, just one thing though, we usually put a daily picture on it, and not a picture of ourselves :o :| :D :D but i tell you Claire, a picture of a pretty Lady always cheers me up :) :) ( creep creep ) :D :D

I'm on week 8 now, so next week i will have to drop down to the step 2 patches hmmmm i will see how it go's :o but i think the Christmas period will be the same for me, so am not worrying about that too much :)

It's lovely to see you again Claire :) :)


Hi Pete

This make me chuckle :D

I forgot about the daily pic (Bad Claire!) :-(

Well done Pete, thats brilliant. Just remember; you've done the hardest thing by stopping and putting a patch on, look at dropping down as a positive. You're further away from the nasty ciggies...

Speak soon :-)


It sounds as if Kaz is getting her new computer on Wednesday then :o hmmmm i will have to start to be nice to her then eh :D :D


We both will i think, or we're hiding again :D don't want the oven set on fire again :D :D


Hmmmm i think we will have to find a new hiding place Sue, just in case :) you know what i mean :D :D cos you cant be toooooo safe can you :D :D

Will have to think about that :o :|


True, well we have 1day to think about it, just hope i can find my thinking cap :o :D :D
