STOPTOBER - Post Here

I'm doing Stoptober. It begins tomorrow.

Starting tomorrow night I'll post how I'm doing, on a daily basis if I'm not curled up in the corner like I'm coming off heroin and haven't thrown the computer out of the window.

If I fail or stumble I'll also come on and admit it.

I won't bore you with details of how many I smoke, how long for, failed attempts etc - I just know it's going to be hard and I know I've brought it all on myself.

Any other Stoptober people welcome to join in. I'll help if I can with some sympathy and kind words.

Good luck to you - we'll all need it.

Welcome to hell.

S'alright, I found some. It was in my secret drawer with the furry handcuffs, and the napkin with your number on it...

Re: STOPTOBER - Post Here

Gave up tobacco in January, I now use one of these "poncy e cigarettes"😃
Feel much better for it and don't stink like an old ashtray, but hard to give up the e fag too.
Good luck all.
