  1. Hey Ya'll trying again.

    Welcome aboard Rusty. Most of us had to back up and take another run at it. Make this one stick and enjoy the freedom.
  2. What are you all reading ??????

    Found an old copy of "Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball" by George Will last night. I read that book about 15-20 years ago. Time for another read. That spare room/Island of Misfit Toys at the end of the hall has some good stuff in it. Eventually, I'm gonna sort all that stuff out.
  3. Hit and Run

    Bautista could be called up from Gwinnett any day now. Some reports have him joining the Braves during the road-trip that starts today.
  4. Day 3

    Yep. I remember the post-task cigarette "trigger" well. It was the last hump I got over so far as triggers are concerned. It was an issue. Now it's not. You can do deep breathing exercises anywhere. Those helped. Other times I would listen to one of my favorite songs. Average song length is roughly equal to the average length of a craving episode. It feels weird to you now, but it will become your new normal in time.
  5. You had some thoughts about smoking. You didn't act on those thoughts. You're good to go.
  6. A Lucky Lady

    Welcome back Rozuki. The worst is behind you. Now you can dedicate yourself to rest and recovery. Take care and best wishes going forward.
  7. What are you all reading ??????

    That's certainly a fair criticism. In "Child of God" the reader is just kind of dropped into Lester's life. After that, it's a matter of putting the pieces together with what backstory is offered as the book goes along. I enjoy Cormac's books, but rarely suggest them in random book lists.
  8. What are you all reading ??????

    Just finished "Without Getting Killed or Caught: The Life and Music of Guy Clark" by Tamara Saviano this afternoon. The last novel I read was "Child of God" by Cormac McCarthy. I found it to be a good read, but am hesitant to suggest it. It's a dark book. Even by Cormac McCarthy standards. Someone once wrote about McCarthy's writing that "If you are disturbed his writing will comfort you. If you are comfortable his writing will disturb you." So, there you have it. A biography of a country music troubadour and a novel about a violent, disturbed drifter roaming around East Tennessee after his release from prison. Enjoy!
  9. Hit and Run

    May be a long day at the park. Rainy day here in the South. Keep the tarp nearby.
  10. Hit and Run

    A walk-off bunt for the win. Good times. Chicks dig the long ball, but Ender Inciarte was the man of the hour last night playing some well timed small ball.
  11. Hit and Run

    Keeping an eye on the Reds-Cardinals game this afternoon. A good friend of mine is a die-hard Reds fan. He's been watching a lot of old videos of the Big Red Machine to help him keep his sanity this season. Well, that and making his argument that Barry Larkin is the greatest shortstop of all-time to anyone that cares to listen. And the Cards are up 2-0 in the top of the third.
  12. What are you doing right now

    Gotta isolate the back legs. Keep that posterior chain strong.
  13. What are you doing right now

    So far, so good on the whole lazy weekend thing. Slept til 11:00 a.m., took a long hot shower, ate some breakfast. And now I'm just sitting around listening to Otis Redding and dicking around on the interwebs. Got a full day of not doing a damn thing ahead of me. Good times.
  14. Hit and Run

    The Braves lost to the Mets in extra innings tonight. Congratulations Whispers. It wasn't the outcome I was hoping for. On the bright side, anytime the Braves and Mets go into extra innings it gives the Atlanta announcing team an opportunity to reference Rick Camp. A friendly reminder of perhaps the most unlikely homer in the history of Major League Baseball.
  15. Hit and Run

    Last season during the playoffs and World Series, Rec started a baseball thread. Recently, in the "Random Thoughts" thread baseball has been a recurring topic. We've got some serious baseball fans here and I think the national pastime deserves its own thread. All fans are welcome to step up to the plate (even Yankees fans) and talk about what your team is doing now or has done in the past. I'll get things started. This video has nothing to do with anything going on currently, but I never get tired of watching it. The Night Sid Slid...

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.
