Absolutely superb day, probably the most fun I've had on a golf course for a good few years.
We all played well, competition was a four-ball Stableford, with the best two scores on each hole to count.
99 points won it, 94 was second, and we were third with 93.
The course was in fantastic condition, the member we played with was great company, and the weather was kind to us.
And I didn't crave a ciggie once!!!
😁😁😁😁😁

Glad you had a great day Rob. 99 points :eek::eek:

You did well with 93.(y)
Problem is Rog, playing there again made me realise just how much I miss the place. Seriously considering chucking it in at Highwoods and returning to Cooden as a full member.
I love Cooden and the easy walking is a godsend now I'm knocking on a bit...

Well done Smiffy!

They say the first 2 weeks are the hardest and you've smashed that! Keep it up!
Cheers mate.
Got to be honest, it's not been as hard as I imagined.
No really bad cravings or withdrawal symptoms thus far.
Still not using patches or lozenges etc.
Big test coming up end of next week as we are off to Kefalonia for two weeks.... if I can get through that, I'll know for sure I've cracked it.

You'll get through it no problem, mate. Partly because you're a man of strength and conviction, but mainly because Sam is likely to tear your balls off if you light one! 🀣

Beer in hand is when I struggle the most and I only smoked for a couple of years in my early twenties!

You can do it though!

Seems like you are one of the 'lucky' ones that doesn't get cravings - I've known a couple of others similarly 'blessed', while others have been true addicts.
Hope the good progress continues, especially at Kef. If 'under pressure' just recollect the 1st post story!

Well survived the two weeks in Kefalonia!
Got the craving a couple of times, I must be honest, especially while sitting in the bar at night with a beer or glass of red in my hand with seemingly everybody else around me smoking.
Also survived a trip into duty free on the way home when I went in to buy my mate Norman some tobacco!!
So that's 1 month, 17 days and 9 hours since I smoked my last one, (according to the app I have on my phone!!).
My oxygen Sats are now sitting at 97% (instead of the 92% they were struggling to reach during my hospital stay), I don't feel so bunged up or muzzy headed, and I am breathing a lot, lot easier, and quieter!!
Sleeping better, my blood pressure has dropped down to a more "normal level" (it was really high before), and my cough has completely disappeared. Still get a little breathless now and again, but after 55 years I guess the damage has been done.
Plus a visit to the driving range now sees me regularly putting it out there 180 yards with my driver, so good news all round!!!
