Room for one more?????
I'mmmmmmm Baaaaaack -
and happy to be. Fell for the ole "just one" trick and it's taken me over a year to claw my way back, so it has to be N.O.P.E. always now else I know what will happen, knew anyway but it is what it is. Would not let myself blog until I'd been seven days clean and boy that took ages - many false starts. But here I am - day 16.
A special thank you to my angels who left twinkly lights on my last blog which was over a year ago now, to help me find my way back. Heiro and Rainbowfish, and Jules, I made it just in time for your wedding. And a shout out to wee musketeer Yas - going strong Honey - well done.
Glad to be back where I belong. J.

Hi Guys - I am still here and still having a read and supporting you all from afar. Still emotional rollercoaster - damn hormones. But it's all good really in Jassie's hood.
Yeaaah - Six Months Today

Smoke free days
Cigarettes NOT smoked
To celebrate my six month anniversary I am taking my (still smoking but super supportive) man out for tea. He encouraged and loved me, even through the psycho cow stage. Have a great day everyone.
TV Star Ady
Saw it Ady - 6.15am. Well done man, it was great.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, I have just found my certificate. It's awesome, it's printed out and sitting on my desk at present. I love it - you sure know how to pick up a girl's Monday and make her feel special. Ady I hope you realise how much we all appreciate all the wonderful support and encouragement you offer everyone. And all the little thoughtful things you do and say. I certainly appreciate you. I just hope I don't lean on you too much, I really notice if you and Clarence are not around. You two make the most awesome tag team. It was worth giving up smoking to wander into this place of caring.
Thank you again - I love it - did I say that already..................
Happy Mothers Day
To all our fantastic women in the group doing the hardest and most important job in the world, have a wonderful Mothers Day - hope you all are totally spoilt with treats and pressies and shown just how much you are really appreciated.
To those of us who have lost our treasured mums, may we have a day wrapped in beautiful memories, and may it not be a tough day.
To perhaps the unsung of this day, the mums who have lost children - you are not forgotten on what can be a very difficult day for you. Sending you a day cocooned in peace and beautiful memories.
To the expecting "mums" in our little quit family, may you have a wonderful day of anticipation and excitement looking forward.
I remember asking my Mum one time how come there was Mothers day and Fathers day but no childrens day and she replied that it was childrens day every day and she was right. God bless you Mum, I really miss you. This afternoon I will go to the cemetery and then meet up with my sisters for afternoon tea and we will draw strength from each other, and have some laughs as we always do when we are together. So I need to stop crying before then, I can do it.
Love to all - have a nice day. XXX
May the Fourth be with you
Lol - only day of the year you can say that.
Have a great day everyone and an even greater weekend. XXX
Yay - four months for me yesterday. Had my last smoke on Christmas Eve so it's easy to remember Christmas Day as my first smokefree day. Haven't had so much as a sneaky puff, I just can't do that and will never be able to. And it also means I can honestly say that I have not smoked at all this year and that is a huge motivator for me if I'm having a bad day - if I'm tempted I think I won't be able to say that anymore and I don't want to throw that away, so I keep going.
Thanks everyone for awesome support and to all the many newbies - hang in there, it took me heaps of goes before I finally got it - I slipped and slid a few times last year but each time I got a bit stronger until I finally got it.
Ady - I see your'e back Buddy - missed you Matey.
Hell1971 - Yas - Ady

110 days - Can you believe it.......
Hi Everyone, I guess it's time to share what has been going on for me. I snuck through my three month anniversary because to be honest, old nicodemon was putting me through hell. I was ready though, so I didn't let my guard down, but I can't really remember ever feeling so bad for so long. My main fears were the three month mark and holidays - so I knew if I got through Easter I would be okay. The trouble started for me around the 85 day mark and I have only just started to feel a bit better this week, so it went on for a good three weeks or so. I was super stressed, emotional, grumpy and irrational and I still haven't forgiven some people for sins committed against me during this period lol. I could have picked a fight with my own reflection and I hardly got through a day without tears. The weird thing was though I didn't actually crave a cig - too busy jumping through all the other hoops. So anyway - had a great Easter - got rip rouring drink one night and even though it would have been so easy to smoke - I didn't. Wasn't even really tempted, in fact I can remember myself stating that no way was I going back to day 1. So I'm still going and I'm so glad I was aware of the 3 mth curse because this time it was really, really bad. But I'm getting better by the day - finding my old bubbly self in there somewhere. Thanks to all for your incredible support - this place is amazing.
Rainbow - thanks for remembering, I saw you quitely out me in someone elses blog recently and I saw the lovely message you left on one of my old ones. Should have known I couldn't sneak an anniversary passed you - thanks luv.
And - does anyone know whats happened to Ady - I really miss him.
Take care everyone and have a great weekend. To all the newbies, lovely to see so many of you. Hang in there, it does get better.
See you XXX
