Changed my quit date to Today.
Hi Everyone, hope you are all happy in the new year and your quitting is going well.
Me...well I have smoked my head off for the last month and today is my new quit day.
I ran out of papers to roll my smokes, decided I wasnt going to go and buy more, it is really windy here this morning so I threw my remaining tobbacco into the wind, chucked the filters in the rubbish and am now back on the quit journey.
Over the last month I have been a terrible nicotine addict, not paying bills so I could buy tobbacco, I didnt even buy my beautiful birman cat her monthly advocate flea and worm treatment because I used that money to put towards tobbacco!!!
Now it is time to say NO MORE and give up this terrible habit once and for all.
I made a poster for my fridge door with a "wish List" of the things I am going to buy myself with the money saved from buying tobbacco in 2013.
1: A petrol Lawnmower (at present I use a hand mower )
2: A Line Trimmer (at present I use hedge clippers )
3: 2 x 2 seater couches
4: A decent funeral plan.
Yay it is going to be a great year and Yes I will do it this time, not going to let anything stop me.
Sorry everyone for the long blog hope you didnt go to sleep reading it.
Have the most awesome day wonderful people.x
Hi everyone I hope you all had a good xmas. I must confess after 4mths of quitting I have started smoking again. Am so angry with myself after all those hard months I blew it.
Have no excuses for it, really just felt really bad with guilt issues over the decision to turn off my daughters life suppprt 12yrs ago. Her eldest daughter (my 2nd grandaughter) came up for xmas with her 2 beautiful babies whom I had never met till xmas. It was lovely to see them, I had been so nervous in the days before they arrived...everything that happened in that nightmare time came flooding back to me and I turned to the smokes.
I have set a new quit date and will just start again from day to day.
It doesn't seem that long really.Cannot say I am much happier even though hopefully I will never smoke again.
I am happy that I dont stink anymore, hate the weight I have put on ... Feel a bit depressed actually.
I know I should be counting my blessings, I have very little to be depressed about compared to some other people on here who have such terrible things to deal with....
Just ignore me, I will get over it...
Have good days everyone.

Hi all of my quit friends, Wow I love the new look quitline and thanks for the help over the last 3 mths.
To all of the wonderful people who have supported me a "big thankyou", couldnt have done it without you all.
Good luck to everyone.xxx
3 months for me today...has not been all sunshine and roses but I made it.
Still have to be on my guard as it would be easy to fall back down that slippery slope and smoke again. The thought of all this time and effort wasted is the thing that keeps me strong.
Have a great day everyone and congratulations to all you quitters out there.
Morning all of you amazing quitters out there,
There are so many people on this site going through some incredibly hard stuff but still finding the time to support and be happy for others.
It is so nice to see such caring and kindness in this sometimes hostile world we live in.
Hi everyone, it is 72 days for me now and I have stopped using patches.
I am pretty sure I will be ok but only time will tell. I used my last patch on Thursday, yesterday and today I feel quite grumpy and am really tired...
Would that be due to not getting the daily nicotine fix through the patch? If anyone can give me advice on this or anything else about stopping the patches I would love to read your comments. Thanks so much and have a good day guys.
70 days, $350 saved.
morning quitters, hope everyone is well and happy.
The sun is shining here in the Far North and it is going to be a lovely day.
10 wks for me today with many ups and downs in between, the money I save goes on other things each week and has definately made the financial side of my life a little easier.
Enjoy the day everyone and take care.x
65 days today, am home again and I didnt get robbed..yay!
My family was lovely, son in law is recovering after his operation and my daughter is working so hard milking, farming, home schooling, housework and everything else.
She gave up teaching to take over since her husband needs 2 hip replacements, 1 done last monday and 1 to be done next year.
They needed me for a week while he was in hospital to be with the little ones while she was milking etc, was lovely being with the boys (4 + 6 yrs)
Well everyone nice to be back and I hope you are all happy, healthy and smoke free.x
