50003 cigarettes NOT smoked


Smokefree days: 2,778
Total savings: $38,803

I've waited for days-well...a few days anyway, for this number to arrive.
Whether it 50,000 or Proud of Your effort! Quitting cigarettes isn't's STAYING quit that requires fortitude. We get this from our Quit. Take a bow, You are making a difference πŸ‘
Stay strong πŸ™‚

Back in, again!!
Nothing really new to report, except this break is full of Nothing! Giving Me, some My time..
Enjoying domestication...
Should try this more often!
Stay strong newbies...
Each trip up, is an opportunity to strengthen Your resolve& learn...
How did that happen?
This is what I'll TRY, next time that happens
Eventually-Your Quit will come
And the Pride that comes with that-never goes away..
Use whatever aids You need, keep Your eyes on the prize, believe You can (cos U CAN)
Stay Strong πŸ™‚

Hi guys, have been locked out again, think I've found a way in, but if it's not successful first time around, sorry 500 error... then gotta wait for about half a day, before I can try again
Anyways, here now...
Planning a beautiful trip to celebrate my 60th coming up in November...saving my tushy off, so for now, no more concerts. A cruise will definitely be part of this-the planning&looking is probably the most exciting part of this πŸ€—. Currently on a long awaited leave...worked thru Christmas, staff shortage, bosses surgery, finally, a week for Me. It's just gone Noon& PJ's never felt this good! Broke the drought last nite! Just 1& BS reading was 8.1 this morning-just inside! There will be another test in 2weeks-this will determine if all my hard work has proven fruitful or if I succumb to yet another drug. On the fence, currently....
Great to see newbies coming on& some of Our long-termers supporting.
Have an Awesome Smokefree day everyone...until next time I sneak in the back door lol!

Long time πŸ€—
I'm not sure why, but I keep getting 'locked out'
You guys must have thought I'd finally given up...
Not so, slow& steady wins!!
Couple of points to share:
I'm still doing Dry July-successfully!
And, more importantly, I've had a major lifestyle change...
Fed up with dragging my sorry a*se around, I found the way to practice my preaching...
If You don't change the way You do things, how can We expect a different ending? So,
Armed with a new determination & using some 'Quit smoking' tactics (having admitted I have a 'sugar addiction') I've rediscovered the Joy in Life πŸ™‚
Happy? Doesn't describe it!
Energy like I can't remember when, Clarity of mind, a new found Zest for life!
When I reached out to You, there was some awesome advice sent way. Thank You, I now enjoy a Sparkling lemon water, in my late Mums favourite glass! Cheers πŸ₯‚
I've not taken those meds, the Dr prescribed & I've only broken my Bank twice in the last month! Learned my triggers, now lol!
Not bad for someone who hadn't been under 10, for about 2years.
I'll share with them, next week πŸ‘
I think I've just learned, that If You can quit cigarettes, You CAN do anything-heck Yeah
Stay Strong Newbies-there is a whole new life waiting for You...
You just gotta go get it...and You CAN πŸ‘

Good Morning


Good morning all, after having 'a thousand 500 errors' since last Monday, I've finally been 'permitted' back into the Blogs!!
Almost given up& decided 1 last shot, so, before I close again, there's a few people's milestones, I've missed...
Brian W-you have shared Your recent life milestones with us& I too, am glad, Your children won't be sufferers of Your addiction... Mighty Proud🌟
Murphy... You're the Bomb πŸ‘πŸ’πŸ₯‚ never doubted You
PG&PSPSP: Double Congratulations to You both, there is no greater feeling than the Freedom from this Addiction 🌟🌟 & an additional Thank You-for the continued support here. I know, We all benefit. The world really is round!
Beautiful Blondene-who never has 'given in' You deserve recognition, for Your Perseverance. Chick-You're 1 in a million πŸ˜˜πŸŒŸπŸ‘
SFMp: you love them littlies, like They're YoursπŸ‘πŸ‘-they are! Stay Strong πŸ’ͺπŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸŒŸπŸŒΉ
Nana22: from us All-a HUGE Thank You, for hanging in& bringing Your positivity & sensibility πŸ˜‡
For our newbies: this road You're traveling, has potholes, ambushes& just when You think You've hit a smooth patch....yet another spanner may be thrown into the works...
Be ready, prepare Yourself for the Battle, use as many aids as You need, then Commit. There have been many Who've said "I'm different, I'll never be able to Quit"
Tell You what-there's no 'special' here...
We are All able to beat this...
With a little help from our friends
Blog, blog & blog some more...

Remember, We are all Strong&Fabulous πŸ€—
NOPE Stay Strong πŸ™‚
