    Greetings NOPErs... today is Plimsoll Day... thank you Britskies... which celebrates Samuel Plimsoll... who with the introduction of his British Merchant Shipping Act and his Unseaworthy Ships Bill hearlded a new era of seafarers safety. So who here knows what Plimsoll marks are? I bet you all do, you just don't know it.... but before we got to just what Plimsoll lines are lets get back to old Sammy... see Sammy was a merchant but he hit a rough patch, lost all his money and ended up destitute and even in a poor house for a while... so he went to sea as a sailor.... anyway he got his shit back together and rebuilt his fortune and introduced his Act and his Bill and as a result all commercial vessels had to have Plimsoll lines... have you worked out what they are??? They are the lines marked on the hull of ships.... they have been doing this since the late 1800s... these lines tell how much can safely be loaded onto a vessel to allow for various conditions, quite ingenious and such a simple fix that had a huge reduction in sinkings and a huge improvement to the safety of sea travel. NOPE .... not even if my boat was going down.

    Thanks, guys and gals of QT! Woo Hoo...2 whole years quit!! I am so lucky that I quit my 40+ year addiction when I did! @notsmokinjo, you certainly got the highlights of my 2nd year on the QTrain in a nutshell (and I thought my 1st year was crazy? Silly me!) "One day at a time" was my mantra at the start of my quit journey, still is! Oh, I so remember what the first days, weeks, months were like...would the anxiety never end? Through the information here, I was able to educate myself about my addiction and it gave me the tools to be successful...this would be my 3rd try and it was literally, do or die!! My reward has been watching my savings grow, looking better and feeling better both physically and mentally! PS. It really does get easier as the days add up!!! If you don't have a ticker in your signature....get one!!! I joined Planet Fitness last month, so my cardio rehab continues! I look forward to Spring ...because it means I can get back into my gardens and get things spruced up for when I relax by my pool! ?

    Congratulations @Rozuki on 2 years smoke free!!! Well done Roz, what a wonderful quit you have going on. Your second year has certainly been eventful, getting your ticker serviced, retiring, relaxing by the pool. We are so lucky to have you still here sharing your journey, creatively NOPEing every day (your NOPEs were one of the things to inspire me as a real newbie) and supporting those coming behind you. So sit back, relaxing in your special 2nd year recliner, and enjoy as we raise a toast. Oh and don't forget to do something super special to celebrate your 2 years... and tell us just what you have planned, we would love to know.

    By Birdie's request....Chicken Parma with beans, kumara (sweet potato) chips (fries), mash spuds, broccoli & cauliflower baked in cheese sauce.... Pretty sure everyone knows what a chicken Parma is but just incase it's a curved chicken schnitzel, with some crispy prosciutto, parmajana sauce and melted cheese.... So the only healthy things on the plate were the beans and oven baked kumara chips.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
