Yes, this is weird. 6 years ago we both came down with the flu together on Christmas Eve and had to forgo celebrating. This is the second time we have both gotten sick together. She seems to always get it worse though as I always get the flu shots. Ach well, this too shall pass. I hope. LOL ohhhh, my chest.
Same here; my wife and I are both sick. But, like we do every year: we're going to stuff ourselves on delicious snacks and watch the Twilight Zone Marathon all night and into New Years Day, stopping only to watch the Ball drop.
I'm going to a house party round a friends and then probably to a club, or house party, depending on how things go..... To be honest I always find New Years Eve over rated when it comes to going out, but then it does beat the loneliness of staying in alone. I would rather be with my gf for new years, but unfortunately she is a few hundred miles away as of yesterday!
maybe a phone call? to me new years is about trying to see what went wrong last year, and doing it differetnly this year. I dont think you need a big party or lots of people. I do hope you have fun and dont feel alone.
I think its a disease. The holidays, none of them, ever work out for me. I think its because of the high expectations or something. So instead, I do my celebrations spontaneously at odd times when nothing else is going on. I will watch people get crazy on TV and that's about it!
I dont do anything for holidays either. I was wondering if anyone did though, and it looks like the majority of people dont. I enjoy the concept for New Years, as I do always hope next year will be better then the last. Best wishes to you!!
aww...good luck!!! it sounds corny, but one day at a time..if you think about it being forever youll overwhelm yourself. just think..im not smoking today....and as far as a crutch? try hubbing, or taking a walk, creative or physical outlets are far healthier and will work just as well.
One day at a time, or one minute...don't care, I'll just slap one of them patches on and I think all will be okay. I quit back in June for 3 months and then blew it, but I know I can do it. Thanks for your words, people!
Good for you. Its a toughie, but if you give it time, you'll feel so much better. I only smoked in college, but I got hooked fast... went (in one year) from never having smoked to smoking a pack or 2 a day. Since I stopped, my health has definitely improved, and I just feel better in general. Its been years, and I still occassionaly want one, but then I remember all the coughing and sinus infections and general nastiness, and the moment passes quickly! Good luck!
As for New Years. I have to work really early the next morning, so we'll probably have an "early" New Year's with the kids... we let them march around the kitchen banging pots and pans. Then maybe have a few snacks or a glass of wine with the hubby and head to bed somewhere around New Year in London (I'm EST).
we could publish an app for the ipod with virtusmoke - you go into it and a picture of you smoking in the old days combined with an electric shock, maybe! so its actually a quitsmokeapp! Now someone else will probably make a billion on it! since I obviously cannot do it - can't even extract myself from the forums long enough to do more than one hub a week. and my score dropped about 6 points in the last 3 days! :
too late! ah - kidding - don't think I will start again - can't smoke at work and I'm a live-in worker! so no smoking here! I remember chewing lots of gum - it seemed to help! but now I've had to quit that after catching a glimpse of myself chewing in the mirror! :
right, in case I'm sacked out by 9 Happy New One to you too! But maybe we'll all be sleepless and buzzing at 12 midnight! hope so - because you never know what could happen! Storm coming, to rattle the windows and keep me awake anyway! I'll bring the cheetos and the chili!
I am sure all of us are kinda bored of the daily word games. So, here is something different You can post here daily (or whenever you are free) and tell everyone about any ONE interesting,fun,cool thing you did that...
I'm so frustrated! I tell my boyfriend of 2 years that I really want him to come to my work christmas party. I told him I cant wait to introduce him to my higher ups. (quick background: He loves to shop and buys themost...
