    The Last Game

    I'll start this game off by asking What is the last beverage you have had? You can answer and then ask your own question. It can be about anything. For Example, you could ask What was the last movie you read? So... What was the last beverage you have had?

    Linked Words Game

    Each player posts two words that go together, but he must use the second word that the last player posted and a new word that he thinks of himself. For example, "French bread," "bread pudding," "pudding cake." I'll go first :) Quit Smoking

    **Game** Two Truths & A Lie Game

    Two Truths and a Lie The aim of this game is to get to know each other a bit better and is pretty easy as far as these sort go. We'll have to make alterations as this is best done in person, but we can totally make this work for the forums. How does it work? Well, the person whose turn it is will make three statements. They don't have to do with the other, or they can - it doesn't matter. The only requirement that two of the statements are truths about the individual and the third must be a lie of some kind. These statements will be randomized and the next posters have to guess which one is the lie. Up to three people can guess in a round and it is up to the turn-holder to confirm either when someone guesses the lie or when all three choices are chosen. The person who has guessed the lie correctly becomes the next turn-holder. Rules? Keep the statements about yourself - after all, we're trying to get to know you! For the sake of the 'keeping things rolling', if the turn-holder does not respond after 6 hours, then the turn moves to one of the guessers (first come first serve in this case). If the person who is the turn-holder doesn't take their turn (post 3 statements) for the allotted 6 hour grace period, then anyone can ninja the turn. As customary...for example purposes, I'll get the ball rolling: AND WE BEGIN!! 1. I have broken 3 bones - my wrist, ankle and pinky finger. 2. I am an only child. 3. Last night, I dreamed of a medium rare NY strip steak.

    Recipes

    Here is the recipe Sharon was looking for, I didn't want to overload the What's for Dinner thread. 2 pork tenderloins (1 1/2 pounds total), trimmed 2 tablespoons olive oil 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 teaspoon minced shallot 1/2 cup dry white wine 1 + 1/3 cup chicken broth 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 + 1/3 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves Garnish: 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives Heat oven to 400° F. Dry tenderloins and season with salt and pepper. In a Dutch oven or deep sauté pan heat the oil and 4 T. of the butter over medium-high heat. When hot, brown the pork on all sides. Lower heat to medium and cover. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Place pork in a baking dish and roast until it reaches 155 degrees on a meat thermometer – about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, add the rest of the butter and the shallot to the pan the pork was browned in and sauté over medium heat until the shallot is soft. Add the wine, broth and mustard and simmer, scraping the bottom of the pan to bring up the fond, until reduced by half. Add the cream and basil and continue to simmer until it has thickened. Mix in the parsley and add salt and pepper to taste. To serve slice the pork into 1/2-inch thick slices, pour the sauce over and garnish with the chives. Serves 4. This is not my picture, but it looks just like this :)
  8. At the very beginning, I thought if I quit for a day, then that's all there was to it. I like this video, wish I had watched it when I first quit.

    Post Your Numbers Here ;)

    I hope Mike doesn't mind me copying his words...but here we are :) When a Newbie, (with less than a year of Smobriety) posts, they add +1 to the number. When a Keeperbie, Olde Pharte (with more than a year of Smobriety) posts, they add -1 to the number. You have to wait until someone else posts, before you can post, again. When either +20 or -20 is reached, then that team wins the round. The person that posts the winning number, is responsible for making a new post, starting a new round with +1 or -1 depending, on which team you are on.
  10. I'll start :) Avocados

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.
