Still here Blondene. Busy at work trying to make sure my firm survives covid-which it has and without smokes.

Good to see you and others still here-NanaT, Clarence, Ady and of course PG.

Shout out

avatar-icon

To all quitters-young and old.

How are we all going? I see one of the legends of quitline blogs (Ladylene) just posted.

So what are you all doing during lockdown? Counting teddy bears, doing DIY, cutting the lawn with scissors? All legitimate activities.

Stay strong. Stay smoke free. Stay in touch.

Ady

avatar-icon

I just read Ady's blog and endorse it 100%. I would say 110% but in the context of this blog that is not possible. 100% will do.

Here's the thing-we have some amazing supporters on this site. Blondene, NanaTurtle, Ady, Clarence to name but a few.

Blondene is an example. She supported everyone. Yet when she posted her blog to pass the baton, not one of the "newbies" said thank you. NanaT is another-a supporter par excellence. On her latest blog not one newbie commented (I was there in spirit NanaT-apologies for the belated shout out).

We tried-we really did. But, apart from old quitters (by old I mean duration not age-although for me...probably both apply) there was virtually nothing from younger quitters.

So follow Ady's exhortation (synonyms-suggestion, urging, direction, expostulation etc etc) and start commenting. He is right. We all have to continue to comment to make this site alive again.

Back here

avatar-icon

After a week in Sydney with PG (helping out with a new grandie) then a week in Port Douglas R&R-much needed I have to say.

Sydney is very crowded-not sure about that city now. Port Douglas-Wow.

Anyway great to see all the new bloggers and the older ones still here. Bit knackered tonite so will get back to commenting over the next couple of days.

I gotta say-PG and I did not miss, one little bit, the smokes on our travels.

Keep strong people

You may have read my comment last night Blondene. Oscars are booked out tonight but I have arranged any other night that suits you and hubby. When you are next up here go in and have a meal on us. You and hubby deserve it

Emotions running a bit high

Just had a message from my son in Australia. They have had baby number 2 and all doing well. Thought I would share with my friends here on QL.

PG and I might just celebrate with a wine or 2 tonight.

Quiet day

avatar-icon

in the blogs today. Makes me wonder if there is a problem.

If not...hows everyone's quit going? PG and I went to see Yesterday tonight. fantastic music and a good, if a bit cheesy, story line. You may know the premise-a world wide 12 second blackout and for reasons not explained all knowledge and recordings of the Beatles was lost-except to our hero.

And here's a nice twist. No cigarettes in this new Utopia. None. Not one and no-one has even heard of the word. Presumably there would be no quitline either!

Just a quick shout out to say I hope your husband (and you) are all OK. Stents are good.

Have a restful weekend

Sunny day

And sunny times ahead for quitline.

Good to see progress with the site. Thank you Quitline. For listening and acting.

Eddy-I see your blogs have gone. However if you are reading this don't be a stranger.

I have said it before and will say it again. This site was instrumental in our (me and PG) successful quit. The site continues to energise us and keep us on track. To see new quitters start and continue is a great feeling. When there is a relapse there is always someone (more than one) jumping on to support and encourage in a positive and constructive way. That is what this site is about.
