Dear Anthony,

Mundane good, smoking bad. 

You're doing wonderfully, and although I wish you'd quit years ago and were just popping in to encourage the newbies (I wish the same for me!), it is also so lovely to have you here clearing the path to the Clubhouse just in front of me.

Please don't smoke. And please post more of your photos when you can?  They are like Quit Nectar to me - they help me remember how beautiful things can be without poisonous cigarettes.

Hi Debbie,

I don't know if you remember me but we used to write on here a bit a few years ago. You really helped me. I am on day 10 and just came back since the time I bumped into you last. I am glad to see you are doing well.

Hi Mercy,

I think I remember you from a few years back.    Good to see that neither of us have given up giving up, and I hope it feels really good to have 10 days under your belt.    Day 7 for me, so I'm not far behind you.

Hi,

I remember you too! It is good to see you and I am glad we are close in our quits. I could use someone to talk with like that on the forum if you want to buddy up?

Hi Suzy,

Big congratulations on being 1 WEEK SMOKE-FREEEE! I hope you are feeling very proud of yourself, particularly after the week you’ve had. Who knows, maybe it’s really been the perfect time to quit as it shows you CAN do it even when times are tough. 
 

I’m so sorry to hear your son has struggled with mental health problems and had a setback recently. I can well imagine it must be such a worry and draining for you when things are hard - and brilliant you didn’t give in to the temptation to smoke. And really exciting he is interested in therapy and making changes. I’ve had depression and other mental health problems since I was a teenager. Funnily when I was about your son’s age I really engaged with therapy properly for the first time and it changed my life! It was bloomin hard work and I’m by no means done with it but I’m so glad I started when I did. I really hope your son can benefit from it too. I think everyone can benefit from therapy if they want to - it’s funny how we do so much for our physical health as routine but mental health is left to muddle through! 
 

That’s so funny about your sister biting her own arm to incriminate you! That’s definitely worse than criticising her music taste, ha ha. As it happens my sister (also older, but by 4 years) is also fixated about something I criticised her for years ago! And she says I “told her off” at Christmas (she’s 40!) It seems so hard to have a difference of opinions without her seeing it as a criticism.

Oh I’ve been really upset about Sarah Everard too :( it’s just awful and yes she was very near where we live. Good on your daughter for attending the vigil. It’s pretty bad how the police handled it, you’d think they you use a little discretion and common sense. My husband and I stood on our doorstep with candles. 
 

My daughter has been a wonderful reminder that humans can be good!

I hope you’ve had a great smoke-free day Suzy.

All the best,

Katie

4 days out. Cravings are not terrible. What is ? The coughing up stuff and feeling so tired. A little dizzy as well. Tomorrow I’m walking. And walking and walking
