Hi all,
 
Well, the Happy Thread has been in hiding and I thought it was time to search it out. The last one had 49 posts which shows *just how happy we can all be*!! It also means that it's really time for a new happy thread.
 
So ...
 
I am happy to see all the wonderful new folks here.
I am happy that this is my 3rd day without smoking and I am doing OK!!
I am happy for chinese rice crackers -- when I find that I am eating *way* too many, I know it's time for my next bit of nicotine gum!

I am happy that this is now my 5th day without smoking.
I am happy that rice crackers are still on offer at the local store!
I am happy that it's not been so difficult this time (so far!).

I will be happier when a few people are back on the board -- I'm rattling around here! -- Let me know how you all are: I try not to be a mother hen, worry-wart, but I am a little concerned that everyone seems to be out for the count!!

One week, one day, Warren!! No cigs for me -- and only one piece of nicotine gum today!!

I used to think it was a cop-out when I said that I knew it wasn't the right time for me to give up, but this time I knew it *was* and boy has it made a difference! :)

I'm happy that I don't wake up with bunged sinuses every morning anymore!

I'm happy to see all the great posting going on -- and I'm worrying less now that I can see a few of my ol' stalwarts around me! :)

I am happy that Rosie's doing so well stopping smoking! Think that might be connected to the panic attacks? *hugs*
Just remember, you can do it!

I am happy for my boyfriend, every single day I am happy for having him. It was our 5th anniversary on November 4th. 5 lovely, long years.

I am happy that my eldest cat is well and fine, after months of testing and cage confinement because they thought she was really ill. All her tests are negative and her scans and physical internal exams are all fine.
She's a bit more clingy because of all the upset and having to be in a cage for nearly 2 months, but she's well and happy.

I am happy for my Dad because he's been given the rest of a module to lecture at his university. The lecturer who was taking that course had a heart attack, which we're very sorry for and we're hoping he'll be back on his feet soon. My Dad's loving the new course and loving being able to lecture more and it's some vital income for them!
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome from birth - Diagnosed 1999
Fibromyalgia from birth - Diagnosed 2005
(?) Ulcerative Colitis - waiting for tests
(?) BiPolar
Thrombocytosis

Epilim Chrono 500mg at night (Sodium Valproate)
Lofepramine (Feprapax or Gamanil) 70mg at night.

Rosie, Congrats on the smoking cessation project you are undertaking! I will do my part and smoke enough for both of us.

I am happy this board exists.

I am happy that I will see a sunrise tomorrow.

I am happy that tomorrow will be better than today.

I am happy that all of you found this board, and I could meet anyone of you and call you friend.

I am happy I am bi polar. It has brought in contact with so many wonderful people that I otherwise would not have met.

I am happy I am bi polar. I think I have experienced life so much more than others without it. I know that I can survive, I can overcome, and I have an army surrounding me to help me do it.

What a great day!

I am thrilled to be alive and living right now. What cool times we have!

Cap
I want "I wish I had one more day to spend at the office" on my tombstone.

I used to be crazy, but now I have enough money to be called eccentric.

Hey all,

Cap, I really thought I was chickening out each time I said that I wanted to give up smoking but that it wasn't the right time ... but I really knew it when it was the right time: all my willpower was there after all -- and so was the nicotine replacement gum that I bought about 8 months ago! (Shows how long my mind can take to catch up with my actionc, eh?!). It's really reinforced how much I don't think it's bad when people *can't* give up: I truly believe they *can't* at that time, but I also know that there may be a time when they can if they want to. Darn the old addiction!

Nicola, you may well be right: the increased anxiety and panic may be from giving up the cigs. I have to remember that -- in fact I'm clinging on to it right now. (I didn't book to see my doc today on the basis that I'm hoping it is the lack of cigs that's causing all my current problems.)

I'm happy that, according to my Click2Quit calendar, I've now saved about £27.50 over 10 days (about 275 cigs: I smoked rollies, which is a lot cheaper than regular cigs, but it also makes it harder to work out how many you smoke and how much you're saving, so those figures may be slightly off!). I'm happy that I am currently chewing my first gum of the day -- and it's 11.45pm here.

I'm kind of clinging to the positives at the moment. I'm happy that I can come here and write them out -- helps bring them to the forefront of my mind.
