Started 1/28/19 by Terry (abquitsmking); 184255 views.

Thanks Robin

Yes I love Allen also and he is committed to his task, I have the book I don't have the audio. I believe I can do this today and will continue to NOPE everyday.

But just the same there are some very good knowledge based articles on this site, with some wonderful people providing support.

Congratulations on your two month quit, may there be many more to follow

Kind regards

Anthony

Whatever works for you Jules, Climbing stairs will keep you fit, as well. 

Congratulations on your twelve days I am still in my first, at nine pm tonight I will have completed 24 hrs.

I am just a read and post kind of guy who loves to get out for a walk now and then. Good luck on your journey, doesnt it feel good deep breaths of fresh air.

Marvelous

Kind regards

Anthony

Hey Anthony,

March through the madness!   You have been fighting for over a year.  The fight is SO WORTH IT,   You know the process.  You are strong.  I am cheering for you and will not stop.  I hope that you take it one minute, hour and day at a time.   Try something different this time.   I wish you peace in the process.   My goodness, it is so much better to be free than trapped in this addiction. Sending strong muscles  your way.

peace

Thanks Marilyn,

Craves were intense yesterday after we did the fortnightly shop, I was almost comatose packing the groceries into their bags, just following routine. I made myself a coffee and settled down afterwards.

This can be crippling this addiction, but I remembered my vow not to smoke and so did not take that route. I can and will take advantage of that quit muscle your sending my way.

Kind regards

Anthony

PS love your key

One day, 7 hours, 44 minutes and 5 seconds. 39 cigarettes not smoked, saving $39.57.

Ok I have to ask. What is fortnightly. I like learning new words. My friend Liz in England is good at making up her own words. She says niggle for annoying. Don't ya love that feeling when you beat the crave. Its like Im in slow motion running thru that strip of paper across the finish line and the crowd is standing and cheering. Lol. Keep on NOPE-ing. You are winning. Freedom is yours.

 A Fortnight is two weeks,

And as weekly is to weeks

So Fortnightly is to Fortnight

Once every two weeks Paula

Kind regards

Hey, March is a fabulous month to quit.  The first two to three weeks are usually windy and/or rainy.  Stay inside and don’t smoke.  The last week or two, you can get out there and start your walks back up and send me some great photos.  Still have your kangaroo picture.  I did some research and found out that they are not all “cute and cuddly” as portrayed here in the states. I actually did a few lessons on them with my kids at school.  Truly an eye opener.  Ok Anthony, this is the big one!  This is your forever quit.  I”m sending over more quit muscle reinforcements to help you get through today.   You are doing this again.

Hey Anthony i remember you were doing so good last year then you disappeared. Its ok i understand, but what made you smoke again? Was there a trigger

Hi Marilyn,

Yes the Kangaroo can get nasty if threatened or cornered, they have great long nails on their bottom feet and they can do some damage.

I am tied up at the moment doing a Certificate course in Photography, its two full days of Tuition 50 miles away at College. Am finding the work challenging but fun. hopefully come out a better photographer.

Thanks for the extra quit muscle, I haven't needed to flex it today but it's there if I need it.

It's Sunday here and hot, after lunch might go and see my Dad, he's in a nursing home not far from here.

Hows the service in the Sky mansion, is Suzy looking after you?

Kind regards

Anthony
