Missing you all

Was thinking about a couple of our friends who I know are struggling out there still off and on the durries.
Keep coming on here as often as you can it does help.
I started here in 2010 but kept away from here when I picked up .
Feeling guilt and shame and trying to cope on my own .
Trouble is I only knew one way to cope and that just made me feel worse.
There is no judgement on here we love and accept you .
We are all addicts ,but by being open with each other we find together we can do what alone I cant. (-: Lots of love and hugs to you.

Ohh, aren't you lovely. I often think of people who have started and then they just disappear. Hoping they are doing okay and if they aren't, that they can find their way back to us. We all know how tough this journey can be. We each have to do this for ourselves but we do it together - and i really like that.

The days keep adding up don't they. Have got a bit of a sore chest today hopefully its nothing serious ,I usually go through all the potential scenarios in my mind of what it could be .Not today gotta stay out of that place it doesn't help at all. Have got my mother and her new hubby coming to stay for a few days ,not really looking forward to that ,we are not close never really were ,in the past we get on ok for about one day after that, she seems to have this thing about constantly listing all my imaginary faults to any one who will listen,im usually ready to ...... either her or me. ha Any way its not worth having a unowot over .odaat for sure.

Hey lovely :) well done on the 62 days. Hope you'll be feeling better soon and... hope it won't be too bad with your mum. Just take deep breaths and think it won't be forever :) x

62 days you are rocking along nicely fagoff, huge well done on your awesome stats. Hope your visit goes better than you think it will, 4D's and no eye rolling when in the same room lol good luck for the visit. ⭐

Profile image SusyQ2 days ago

Hey fagoff! Families are funny things! I can usually do around a day, maybe two, before I start to lose my mind! I have found that since I have quit I have got calmer and much better able to cope with their eccentricities (or bad behavior) :-) Good opportunity for a social experiment.

Profile image aimee72 days ago

Well done on 62 days fagoff and good luck with your mum! Doing well!! :-)

Profile image Nana222 days ago

Am quite tired been doing a course last three days allgood but tiring ,my beloved is also very tired so we are both setting each other off at present ,seems whatever I say its the wrong thing,whew havnt thawt about a unowot till I wrote this so that's good.
I have been thinking off and on about knocking off using the ecig sometime as its still feeding the addiction,but don't know if im ready for that yet.

Profile image Axl2312613 days ago

Hi mate, use the nrt as long at you think it's necessary. I am. We've both come so far to stuff it up. Give your wife a cuddle. It works for me!☺

Profile image Nana223 days ago

Hey fagoff, i'm with Axl on this. If you feel ready, then give it a go, but if i'ts impatience or you just think you "should" then i myself would wait a wee while. I have stuffed up many of my quits by thinking i should give up the nrt and i always ended up smoking again within a 2/3 weeks. I'm not saying you would as well, just be aware. Only you know when you feel ready. Iv'e just signed up with quitline for another 12 week programme so i can keep getting lozenges if i need to. Well done on your 61 days too mate.

Profile image Nana223 days ago

Profile image aimee718 October, 2014

Well done fagoff 56 days that's truely amazing!

Profile image fagoff18 October, 2014

I had a bit of phone confrontation last nite with someone difficult and tho it did affect me and I had a busy head for couple of hours I didn't even consider unowot ,that must be pretty good progress ,eh just remembered that now more proof that smoking actually caused me anxiety it didn't ever fix it .Its such a Liar .

Profile image Axl23126118 October, 2014

Hey mate. Well done on 8 weeks! You're too strong to let nicodemon get to you☺

Profile image Nana2218 October, 2014

Yay fagoff. 8 weeks today is the bomb!. You have come such a long way and i'm so proud of you. No way is old nic getting you now. You know how to get rid of him. Sounds like you had an awesome day yesterday. There'll be so many more to look forward to as a non smoker.

Still going ok ,no real probs to speak of. Met with a mate yesterday who still smokes,Two months ago we were both saying weve got to knock off this smoking lark.we talked about the benefits of quitting ,he has before, for short periods but I noticed he is sort of closed up to the possibility of him deciding to quit. His mother recently passed on from smoking related issues and had to walk around with an oxygen bottle she still smoked till the end too, shame cause she was a lovely Maori lady very spiritual.Ive noticed this a lot with other smoking friends they seem closed up about quitting .They all ask me how im going ,I sometimes think they expect me to fail.
I guess I have been something of a serial quitter,since before 2010.Ive realised I cant give them what ive achieved much as id love to .

Profile image Elevtheria17 October, 2014

Well, Mr Serial-quitter ... I think you're doing great this time. Maybe they are just asking because they admire you and if you lead they might follow you. Well done on the 55 days :) x

Profile image fagoff17 October, 2014

O I also made it back to the top of my hill yesterday, had a couple of breath stops .I am noticing that my fitness is getting much better hardly even feel stiff anywhere today.I still get puffed after a stiff bit of hill walking but I also seem to recover much quicker now so that's encouraging. I usually do it at a pretty good pace though yesterday I slowed down a bit so the wife could keep up with me.Ive always set pretty high standards for myself and usually achieve my goals ,but I am thinking I need to go a bit easier on myself especially with this quit because this is something I have to achieve ,if im going to be around and healthy when im older you know,

Profile image fagoff17 October, 2014

Off outside to hang the washing now .A blokes work is never finished hehehe.

Profile image Elevtheria17 October, 2014

Sounds like you have it all under control dear :) Good to see that a bloke hangs the washing out too :) My ex (he was abusive) wouldn't do "girl work" Hat off to you dear :) Have a fantastic day xx

Profile image Nickers7617 October, 2014

Well done on 55 Days...just goes to show we may not get there first time but we will get there!!! ;-)

Profile image Maanu17 October, 2014

I always tell people "yeah it was really hard to quit but it was well worth the effort I'm really glad I did it it's easy now I'm saving money and much healthier" I think that is what people need to know if they are thinking about quitting. Congrats on 55 days and regaining your fitness and health.. Isn't a great feeling to walk up a big hill and actually feel good. I'm loving it (-8

Profile image Axl23126117 October, 2014

You're nailing this quit mate☺

Profile image Nana2217 October, 2014

You are most definitely doing it this time fagoff and doing it brilliantly. 55 days worth of brilliance!. When you've hung the washing out can you get yourself into the kitchen and whip us up some scones please.

Profile image fagoff17 October, 2014

id be happy to do that nana but you wouldn't be happy to eat them (-: my cooking skills are pretty basic.I decided a long time ago im a better conoiser (appreciater) than cook (-:. although I do a mean poached egg.

Profile image Nana2217 October, 2014

Bet you still make better ones than me. Hubby makes the scones in this family.

Profile image Ladylene18 October, 2014

Hi Fagoff. Awesome stats :) don't be fooled by their closeness concerning quitting. They are possibly feeling guilty that they have not tried, maybe disappointed in themselves. Funny how we never admitted those things while we were smokers. Rest assured though ... They will be watching you with interest. Yep ... Point out the positives when they ask and wait til they are ready. Well done on making it to the top of the hill :)

Profile image clarence the cat18 October, 2014

Hey Fagoff, you're doing great! I agree with Ladylene. Some of those "concerned" friends
are a little bit envious of your success. Don't let them weaken your resolve.
