Festivety

avatar-icon

Hi again fellow quitters

Seems I have a lot to say tonight lol. Well, it's the first evening of December so I decided that tonight, we have a festive dinner haha. I'm trying to spend less time at work and more time at home with my family. I mean.. we have to balance everything ahy? I do get these obsessive times where I go all fitness mental or go all workaholic mode.. like I forget to just breath. Or is it breathe? See.. I cant spell my English is still not the best but heyyy it's ok lol, we are all just trying, right?

So if been a bit christmas cray cray today. I'm getting excited that Santa and the reindeers are visiting in 24 days time. I'm not asking for smokes this year but a bit of booze would go down well. So I decided to make.. key word "make" my hot as man get up on the roof and put Santa up there! He didnt look too festive on the roof, and let's just say.. Santa doesnt look like hes doing down my chimney, he looks pretty much like hes doing a handstand on my roof with the help of some very visable *bright orange tie downs off my truck*. Not cool,,, the neighbours that dont visit with christmas cookies probably hate us that little bit more.. but oh well.. happy happy it's the silly season hahaha.

We have our 6.2ft christmas tree up today, kmart thank you. I couldn't reach the top of the tree so got my very handsome but looking a little raggered man to put the tree topper on. Threw his wind blown hair style and grazed knee from falling the last step off the ladder, his mumbled sentences and side swiping eyes... as I asked him to do another job, I could still tell how much he loved me lol. Very cool.

All the outside solar powered icicle lights, the special little Christmas decorations and tinsel just make me feel like a child all over again. The kids have all been here today and my goodness what a mess, but my gosh, what an amazing day we have had. All this stuff makes my man feel like he has done some very hard work lol and he gets kind of grumpy and tired but there is nothing sexier than my man helping out because he knows how important it all is to me and the kids! Very cool again lol.

Iv gotta confess.. he put up with a lot today lol.

So I'm not all that bad.

I decided to cook a lovely dinner with my sons partner, she was so good to hang out with. We made a nice festive dinner tonight. A couple of roast stuffed chickens with home made gravy and all the trimmings. We had triffle, pav with summer fruits on top, we brought christmas crackers from the warehouse with dumb little toys inside, we made my Grans home made shortbread and one of her caramel slices from recipe.

It was like a christmas feast tonight! No work tomorrow so I'm sleeping in. I love it. Happy times. Hope you have all had a wonderful day.. the first day of the silly season 🤗

The road to freedom

avatar-icon

Hey Quit Fam

These blogs are just awesome, dont you think? Quitline, your just amazing!

In my opinion, this is just my thoughts, I think "having these blogs is an outstanding tool" to use to help people stop smoking.

Think of the people that have made this tool part of their life, been able to share their experiences, love, support, others alike to relate to, care for, understand my goodness being here blogging and getting vital support was almost like the road to freedom!

Thank you quitline. Thank you Quit Legends. Thank you everyone. I couldnt have quit without all of this amazing help. I am so very grateful for everyone's love and support.

We are not alone on this journey. Some of us ride the quit train, we go west and get on with smokefree life, but I myself come back every so often and connect again to ground myself and to remember how important Quitline actually is.

To all the new quitters on here, use it, make friends, support everyone and make it a happy, lively and loving safe place. I cant stress how much this can help you.

Remember why you quit in the first place, focus on your goals, always be proud, share everything including feelings, dont be scared to ask for help or advice. Remember the 4 D's, One Day At A Time, NOPE, the basics.

Kia Ora Quit Whanau.

First time iv logged in here for months, a lot of memories.. couldnt help but have a giggle thinking about 'the good old days' when I first joined Quitline in 2015. I am not sure what changed or how it changed but I know one thing - I am still trying hard to be smoke free as I was over 4 years ago when I became a member here at Quitline.

Hello to all the new quitters, take things 'One Day At A Time' and live by ''Not One Puff Ever' it's a huge help.

Shout out to all the old timers, giggle* you know who you are. Hope everyone is well, safe, happy and smoke free. Im still trucking along, I often stop and think about the Quit Fam.. I love and miss you all.

Heyyyy... It's getting near Christmas oh my gosh I love the silly season!!

Hi guys
Early hours in the morn, doing some crazy hours on the long hauls. I'm all for 'women can do anything' etc etc, but this industry really is a mans domain. I enjoy my job and I do it well, sometimes this environment is not suited for women. I know most of the truckies but there are some dodgy drivers at this time of the morning. Some of them have been alone for quite some time, that can effect a person's state of mind, it alters and changes people. When I feel in danger like that I lock myself in, I'm getting to be an expert at reading a situation, reading someone's character quickly. I'm like the only non smoker at the yard right now lol, that's cos I'm special. Specially awesome haha. Oh well, I guess I better go, oh yeah.. I'm having my brother n sister this weekend. Yayy. I miss them heaps. Kia kaha Quit Family, be strong.

Hi guys
Nearly 1pm and I cant sleep. For the first time in ages I feel like a smoke. I'm not going to, I'm just p'd off at myself and things in my life that I can't control. Some of you will be aware of my relationship with my Mother, well lets just say that I'm the adult in our relationship. Sometimes I just wish I had a Mum who is a Mum to me. My Mum breaks my heart sometimes.

Hey Quit family
Finish at 1900 tonight, then guess what? I get a 3 day weekend off. I have not had 3 days break in a row for over a year! I'm so excited!!! I'm going to spend my weekend watching Netflix by the fire, harassing Hot Cop, playing with the twins, sleeping and eating. I'm not going to do any work, no exercise or running I'm just going to relax and be very lazy lol. And what else will we all not be doing? Smoking.

NOPE. NO IS A COMPLETE SENTENCE

I MAY 'EVEN HAVE THE ODD MOMENT TO POP IN HERE UNDER ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE WHATSOEVER' (😂nana)
