Weekly Sentence #8 winners!, etc...

Good Friday to everyone!!  I quit smoking this week.  I'm on Chantix, the smoking-cessation pill.  It's working rather well.  I am feeling a bit cranky and very tired from the nicotine withdrawal, but other than that, it is going well.  I haven't smoked in four days!  If you are the praying type, I would love your prayers for continued success.  It has been a super hard struggle for me to quit in the past.  Thanks!  So, today is time to announce the winners of "Weekly Sentence" with Val.  I loved reading the sentences this week!  They made me think of Spring!!!  How HAPPY is that?!!!

I wanted to congratulate:

  Joann from Joann's Weight Loss Journey:

Saved people relax in noble grace!!!

Grace from My Llama Wears Army Boots:

Special people readily invent nifty gizmos.

    Linda :)

  15. Congrats on quitting smoking. I know it's hard. I hope you keep it up!

  16. Well Done on quitting the fags. My theory Is: If I can do it, anyone can! lol. To this day I still stand by that. I lived for my fags, They were my pleasure, my cushion, when times got bad. I had a hangover one Monday and while still being half merry and half Ill, I decided to see if I could stop. I smoked my last fag that monday morning and counted the hours one by one that I stayed off them, I drank Earl Grey tea (with milk cos I'm not that posh!! lol) to stay calm, (as I was rather uptight!!!!) and I have been off them for a year and 6 months. For every hour that passes on the clock Val, Tell yourself well done and In the background I will be saying the same to you. Good luck. Any encouragement required....Mail me! lol. It makes a huge difference when just one person says well done. Love Pam xx

  17. Lol. Well done to the winners, I knew there was something I had missed!!! What am I like?? lol. Brilliant sentences, Loved them all. Love Pam xx

  18. There were some really good sentences this week.... so it's a real honor to win this one!!!  Thanks!!  And Congrats to WillandGrace for her win, too!!!


  19. I, too used Chantix and I've been smoke free for 15 months now!  Whoo Hooo.

    Keep up the good work.  Remember it is a 12 week program and yes I know the prescription is expensive but no more than you would pay for cigarettes for the month.

    After a year, you are entitled to contact your health insurance company and request a Tobacco Review.  It will lower your premiums quite a bit.

    Best of luck to you.  I will keep you in my prayers


  20. Special People Really Inspire Nice Gifts!  Congrats ladies!  xoxo CATHY
