Thank you quitline, I have not been able to get on to the website forever. After many messages and phonecalls I am back. I missed the blogs, these were one of the main inspirations during my quit. Am close to 4 years smokefree now.

Hello team, pop on here every now and then to see how everyone is going. I am proud to say I have been smokefree for over three years. Most days it is Ok, but some days I could easily light up. I have my brother staying with us following complications post operatively. He is needing to have abdominal surgery (the problem is exacerbated by smoking)He is still smoking and not looking like quitting any time soon. He is desperately trying to make himself surgery fit by going to the pool and the gym when all he really needs to do is quit smoking. I have mentioned it, but as ex smokers we all know how that went down. With his smokes sitting nearby and even unfinished fag ends in the ashtray look tempting some days. Would NEVER EVER light up again, but the truth is the thought is always in the back of my mind. A true addict. ODAAT. Have a super Sunday

3 years, so happy, feel so much like a non smoker now. Not saying that the temptation has gone. I have my brother staying with us at the mo and he smokes. Sometimes it is hard but feel I wouldn't ever do it. Happy new year to all you non smokers

So proud of my stats. This weekend past I flew to Auckland and hired a car to drive up north to Taipa Bay to attend a friends wedding. We stayed at a resort and I had the money to do that. I was able to eat in the restaurant and buy things for my moko while I was up there. I felt sad for the smokers there who were trying to find a safe place to smoke and having to leave the function, dancing etc to go outside and have a smoke. DON'T MISS THAT ONE LITTLE BIT. I have enough money put aside from not smoking, I bank $80 a week and then am able to shout myself these great times away. The weather was lovely too, had a blast. I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous (smokefree) New Year

I have made it, so happy with my progress. I am taking on some part time work helping with cessation of smoking for pregnant women, never thought I would be eligible for something like that. Looking forward to it. Hope everyone is well and smokefree. Weather in Lower Hutt has just turned to crap, but am nice and warm inside. Take care

Hi everyone, hope your day is going well, daylight saving is now insitu so I am guessing summer is somewhere nearby. I am 42 days short of 1,000 days smoke free, I haven't had even one puff. Sometimes I really miss smoking but most of the time I don't even think about it, and generally am so grateful I don't smoke, it is such a time waster and a killer.. Enjoy the rest of your weekend team and remain smoke free, it is so worth it

After Friday I am so grateful I don't smoke any more. I nearly forgot my grandsons audiology appointment so I drove rather quickly to the school and I ran to his classroom and no one there, saw some kids across the playground, ran over there and it wasn't them, (I had 15 mins until our appointment), I ran to the hall, not there, ran to the office to sign him out, asked the office ladies where was Jacobs class, they are out on the senior field, so I ran down there, grabbed Jacob and ran back to the car, drove just in the speed limit to the hospital parked and ran down the corridor and arrived in audiology with 2 mins to spare., nearly needed to go to cardiology for myself, or maybe the respiratory department. BUT I DID IT, and there is no way I could have done all that running when I was smoking (and I am 62) pretty happy with my fitness level. SOOO HAPPY TO BE A NON SMOKER.......
