    Default One on One

    To quote an old cliche, I wish I could bottle and sell the way I feel
    this morning - wow - amazing. Not wishing to sound like an anorak or a
    show off either, but I go swimming regularly and have done for some
    time, smoking or non smoking, less or more. Today I swam 20 lengths
    more than I usually do in just a couple of minutes more than my usual
    routine - it was easy and afterwards I felt like I could run a
    marathon! Admittedly I have been on a bit of a health kick this past
    week - it has helped greatly to take the focus off quitting.

    I can honestly say that today I have never felt happier or healthier
    in my recent memory - and I know its only very early days - I am not
    going to let this one slip.

    Anyone who is out there lurking and just thinking about doing it,
    please DO - its WORTH it - it gets BETTER and better every day - IF
    YOU LET IT!

    I also wanted to show off my meter - I think it looks kinda neat
    today ;o)

    Glad you had this out-of-smoking experience. Keep up the good work.
    That goes for Cindy too.

    By the way 20 length = how many meters? or yards? and did you wear
    the anorak?

    Thank you all so for your lovely messages. I have been AWOL this
    weekend due to unforseen circumstances ... my very happy day Friday
    ended with a celebration with my SO who has also quit with me and we
    had our first bottle of wine since we quit. Late on in the evening I
    decided to see if my laptop would like to join in the toast - my
    laptop does not like wine - my laptop is more than a just little
    sick right now.

    My quit money has all been spent now and some on a new PC this weekend
    - we are in the process of setting it up now - thank god we saved all
    this money so far!

    Turned out to be a rather expensive bottle of wine considering it was
    on special!

    Love all of you lovely people at AS3

    No matter what I aint going to smoke

    Karen

    I haven't got my meter back yet but I quit on 30 March 2008 at 6pm so
    I am approx one month, one week, 3 days and some hours quit saving
    some money minus cost of a new PC

    Sometimes we need to reward ourselves a little bit more than the meter
    says .. personally I think we should start with an account of $1000 or
    so just getting through the first week!

    Thank you for all of you feel-good happiness! Stephanie

    I can't remember where I got my QuitTime meter...but you can get one
    just like it at:

    Please note: I did some editing (which is somewhat easy).

    thanks Wayne I tried it but Vista didn't seem to like it - I've gone
    back to my old faithful (silkquit) which is also editable but
    obviously not idiot proof as the wrong bits kept disappearing on me -
    I'll stick with what I'm getting good at - not smoking

    That's good. It means no matter what happens...at the end of the
    day you can feel a sense of pride and satisfaction in that you
    didn't smoke today. Good stuff.

    If you want to get rid of that lap top, I would like to get it. I can
    usually get them back and running again. If the screen doesn't work, it
    doesn't matter about that. E-mail me off the group or over on myspace. I
    think I have you on my friends list.
