Lia..have you heard from Dobbin by any chance, last message i can find from him, is at the end of May. Hope is all ok with him .

He was about a week earlier than I in quitting so he should be at the 23 month mark now.

Miss his little pearls of wisdom.

    Hi Jenno. I have not heard from Dobbin. Sometimes when the quitting becomes a reality one forgets to visit the site and one day blends with the next and there is no real need to check in daily. The things I really like seeing are the day and $ trackers. 809 days and nearly $18500 saved... That is enough motivation for me to keep going. Cravings last just a second or 2. Cannot remember why I ever bothered to light up less alone why I persisted for 45 years. What a fool. Like to think I have seen the light. Lets just hope those who succeed return occasionally and reassure others that it is possible.

    Thanks Lia for your reply, yes you have done really well on your journey, but i, like you also know its not an easy road, but very do-able and we survived, its learning to let go of something that has controlled 3 quarters of our lives and now its time to put the savings into our pockets and not the Governments.
    I hope thats the reason why Dobbin hasn't voiced himself for awhile, just hope all is well on his homefront and he is playing that music maker that he has purchased with his savings.
    Thanks again, Lia
