Hi there Marge

Thank you so much for your good wishes... I still can't quite believe that it has been 2 years.. some days I have to pinch myself lol.  This last 12 months has certainly been a tester with us personally having to shield because of hubby's health.  There has just been the two of us for so long now... we have seen our families but not many times and not to hug.  The hardest thing has not being able to hug our grandchildren (1 is 4 years old and the  other 18 months).  Christmas was by far the worst time as we just celebrated on our own.  The schools go back on Monday and we can meet with another family by the end of March (we have been  in the second lockdown since before Christmas) and they say we will be able to mix a lot more by June!!!!  As you say, I have got through a very stressful time and not smoked - but I still can't believe it lol

Thanks again Marge :)

Hello Asad,

Congratulations to you on 2 full years smoke free.  You hung tough through all the bad times and now you are free. It will only get better and better each year to come.

You are definitely part of the 80% club.

Best Wishes.

Hey Asad, Jan, and Cheryl, 

Congratulations on 2 1/2 years this month! Jan and I talked earlier today. Asad and Cheryl, I hope both of you are doing well also. If you get a chance, it would be good to hear from you again too. I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend and a happy September.
