    Well done Colloquial, don't let your guard down. NOPE - not one puff ever. Good luck.

    Great going Colloquial ... I've read some of your earlier posts and agree wholeheartedly. Well done and great to see new contributors helping others and succeeding themselves.. It helps bot only those beginning the quit journey but also some of us earlier quitters as a reminder to stay on track.

    Hi Colloquial. Good to see you have succeeded with early days. So many don't. Anyone can if they take responsibility for their addiction. I relied on the support of fellow quitters from day 1 to Day 1000. Pressures are different at every stage. There comes a time when you are seemingly on your own on this site. That is often because only 4% of quitters succeed initially. Would be good to see a greater groundswell of determined quitters at present. Those who go the distance often have a positive post to promote their new thinking. Constantly asking for help does not work. At some stage one needs to take responsibility for ones wrong decisions. Pave the way for others who may be in on the same page.
