Real proud of you Jo.  It wasn't easy but you're one tough Aussie chick.  Enjoy the rewards of being one YEAR smoke free.

Huge congrats Jo on your 1 Full Year Anniversary! I'm so excited, as are many others, to be able to welcome you to the Lido Deck today :) Take a seat on a cushy lounge while we get you a well deserved cocktail.

It's been such a pleasure to have been able to share your quit journey. I'm amazed at the sheer determination you have shown in getting past some of the life gut-punches you've received both early on and later in your quit. You Aussie gals are some tough peeps. The kind I would want standing beside me in times of adversity! (Insert gif BKP just posted :) )

Your contributions here on Quit Train are too numerous to list in one post. Thanks for all your time and effort. It really makes a huge and positive difference here :) Most importantly, your positive influence on new quitters and even the lurkers who we don't even know are reading our words here.

 

Hope you take full advantage of the day because it's huge and will mean a lot to you. Drink in every moment!

 

Speaking of drinking, don't forget to finish the day with a little wine or maybe the whole bottle?

Jo, amigo! You did it, reaching the lido deck like an aussie Queen! Although Ive only seen the last 3 months of it... I party with you as hard as everyone else!

I think it's amazing what you did. Not just the quitting... but the support you offer to others, the stories you tell, your writing talent. Ive enjoyed so many of your 'it's ...day' tales in the nope pledge. Isn't it a just the coolest idea someone in rainy Holland wakes up, curious about what day Jo makes of it? Thats the power of connection through this board... and your contribution is so valuable!

Ahhhh, one year!! Congratulations and I whish you a very special celebration, with lots of spoiling and good food and beautiful australian things and more things and more glitter and whatever is on your whish list!

She's on Melbourne, Australia time @Jordan7 which is almost 1:30 pm Wednesday so she's at work. I imagine we won't see her here for a few more hours so we'll just have to keep the party going till she can join us :)

Well...how 'bout that.  The Lido Deck seemed different today.  Different accent.  I didn't understand half the lingo being used around here.  AC/DC was playing on every radio station.  The toilets went round the other way when I flushed.  And everybody laughed at me when I talked about the teams I "root" for.

 

Now it all makes sense...Ol' Ozzie Looney Bird is on deck now.

 

You've done a damn fine job Jo.  Built a rock-solid quit for yourself.  Payed it forward to those who followed in your footsteps.  And have become an integral member here on the Train.  Congratulations.

 

Shine on you crazy diamond.

@Martian5 I heard you were a bit of a party animal but that display you gave us at Jo's party was off the charts!  

Rock on buddy :)

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
