Wee me

A wee bit about me :)

Recommended Posts

Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. After being a smoker of 20 sometimes more but strangely never less puffs a day for 30+ years . I started my final quit on 1of August this year. 

I had been promising myself I would quit but always found a million reasons why I couldn't do it at that time "I'll do it later" was my mantra..!!   So I went to my local pharmacy to join their  cessation programme. We decided 12 weeks of patches and lozenges, I blew into the carbon monoxide detector and .. oh my the alarm went crazy all the red lights were crazily flashing red.. I was in shock at that wee machine, I came out with my NRT stuff and my quit date (a few days later) and immediately lit up (well I was in shock and NEEDED a puff to calm down!!  Right??) As I walked home I realised that that this experience (flashing lights and alarms) had scared the bejezus outa me and I knew the longer I left it the more the chance I would find a reason not quit on that date and just be back in that cycle of buy a pack, promise this is last pack then say ocht next time... buy pack, promise this is last pack then say ocht next time..!!!

That was the day I went cold turkey and here I still am. Geez it's been a right roller coaster ride at times but things have really leveled out for me now and I am holding a really strong quit working on making it Titanium..

I should also say I am a member of another support forum but I would like to be part of this forum too as I know I can now help others struggling on their path. I hope this will be ok with you all ?:)

Wow, what a nice 1st post Wee Mee & welcome to our small but close and somewhat quirky family :) I hope you stick around and get to know us all. Congratulations on your almost 4 month quit - that's amazing :) Clearly you are already comfortable with your decision to have quit smoking and getting your life back. Helping others and even just communicating with others in the same position is also very helpful to us with our own quit. Look forward to seeing you around :91_thumbsup:

Oh bakon, bakon, bakon..... Thank you so much for your warm welcome my dear chap but I fear, I am one of those oddballs you have heard speak of in whispers...!!  Cats don't really float my boat and princess weddings make it sink like the titanic..!!! (Running back to hide in my cave again as a noose is an offy heavy necklace) :2_grimacing:
