Hello All My Close Quit Buddies
Newbies won't know me but my six month quit buddies will. Just popped in to see who was still here and to say I'm six months smoke free. Had a wee blip for a few days back there but I deducted that from my stats
I'm still in Scotland living with my twin in a wee flat. Not working yet because the red tape for nursing jobs here is hellish. We had so many foreigners in NZ just walk into care jobs. I come back home and am scrutinised because I've been out of the country for 7 years. So am waiting to get everything okayed
I've for myself a wee car.
I'm still not over the Tug thing because he's put a high price on the house so it's not sold yet. He's not talking to me at all which makes things very hard. But at least he's not saying the awful things he flung at me when I went back to tidy my stuff.
I'm so glad to have made this decision
I'm going to get a job hopefully
I'm still smoke free- crave sometimes. In fact a lot more than before because boredome is one of the worst habits. But I clean or walk and have not succumbed.
It's weird because the shops all display cigarettes. I still can't get used to that one !
The hong that also stops me is I keep willing people who walk past. That smell reminds me why I don't want to smoke. My sister wouldn't let me anyway. Ha ha
Oh also I've been able to get ROBBIE WILLiAms tickets with the money I've saved. And we're going to see the pandas at the zoo this weekend. Oh the joys of being able to do stuff !!!
Well thanks to all my supporters. You all know who you are.
Ill try and pop in again in a month or so. I forgot my password and couldn't log on for a bit.
Happy quitting everyone xx
Maybe Last Quote For A Wee While. :(
"Moving on is simple. It's what we leave behind that's hard."
Last Friday in NZ Quote
"One day at a time, this is enough. Don't look back and grieve over the past for it is gone. Do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."
I have certainly taken this quote on board. So true it is
Happy weekend peeps
Thank you Thank you Thank you :))
Last Thursday In NZ Quote !!
I've learned that things change, people change, and it doesn't mean you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn't mean giving up. It means accepting that some things weren't meant to be
Last Few Quotes About Leaving. Only Five Sleeps :((
"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next"
Returning to Scotland on 21/1/13.
Hi Guys. I really want to thank everyone who has been with me on my quit journey. People not quitting say they hate the word journey. Buy i really dont think they understand :(.
If it wasn't for the people in this site I think I would have ended up in Henry Bennett or possibly not stopped smoking. Everyone has been so so supportive and its so refreshing to have people here who do not judge at all
I did fall by the wayside a few days ago for a few days :(. I had a really really difficult few days severing ties with Tug. We have put the house up for sale and I've taken all my worldly goods to a place of sanctuary till I leave. I'm in a gorgeous place in Tamahere until I leave NZ a week Monday. It's so surreal I have only got a week left in this gorgeous place. But I will still pop in maybe once a week or so. Even better more often if I can
Again HUMUNGUS thanks to everyone. I guess as we are all quitters we know how humbled we are by other people's support but I am genuinely so grateful for everyone's support here
Thanks thanks thanks
Especially to everyone from August 2012 to date. You will know who you are for sure. Yes it's you and you and you ........................
Back On Track.
I've had a stressful few days. I walked out of the house with all my wordly goods yesterday. Three suitcases, four bin bags and two boxes of stuff
That's ten years worth of 'stuff'
I also walked into a very stressless, peaceful place with friends and had my last cigarette at 3pm
I decided it was my last and have also decided because this has been the worst week I have ever known in the past ten years I am going to continue with my quit stats but take off 7 days
I'm not going to go back to zero because I have worked damned hard to stay quit free and if I hadn't had to do this I wouldn't have lapsed of that I know
Thanks to my quit buddies for not judging me at such a difficult time
I'm feeling better. Haven't craved at all all evening and am mad that I've made my hair stink again but I it's been washed and it'll stay clean again
Night all xx
Don't Crave On A Saturday
Had a smoke today. Wanted so badly for the Quitline to help
I looked for 0800 number to ring and saw CLOSED
Moral of this story. Don't ever crave on a Saturday
Why is the support not there on a Saturday
I have had a cigarette after four months quitting
I'm not as strong as I thought I was
The death of a relationship of ten years
The death of the dog. Bobby
Starting a new life when I return to Scotland
The death of my granny
I tried Quitline but don't crave on a Saturday because the helpline is closed
Happy New Year when it comes
Hey Quit buddies

Just wishing you all a pre Happy new Year because I will be thousands of miles in the air on my way back to nZ
