    A-Z Places with Strange Names..

    So this was a very popular topic in Topic of the Day when we had it so lets see how it goes as a permanent addition... its simple, going A-Z you need to list strange places names from anywhere in the world. Now a place may be a geographic feature like the Knobbies in Victoria or it may by a city or town or even just an inlet. Of course there are some letters which will be harder, like X & Z... so they can be skipped.. or in the case of X you can apply the SLOX and substitute a number for x... its algebra, just go with it. As usual "the" is invisible. Please list the place name and the country. So lets get this show on the road.... Anus, France

  7. WIZZ FIZZ CREME EGGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hooley Dooley world you are missing out my Northern Friends... this year Easter has bought with it a brand new experience in oral pleasure..... so growing up in Aussie one of the best treats around was a bag of Wizz Fizz... which is a little paper envelope full of white powdery sherbert and a little plastic shovel to scoop it out and eat it... seriously where else but Aus would parent give their kids little bags of white powder that was sure to make them hyperactive and slightly manic.... then they branched out into to lollypops.... yum, sooo yum.... but their newest contribution to the hyperactivity of Aussie kids is the Wizz Fizz Creme Egg.... so I got one, mainly cos it is in shiney orange foil and well it said Wizz Fizz, and omg it was frickin ah-may-zing.... blow you mind good.... white chocolatey cream, with bits of pop rocks (popping candy) and sherbert.... coated in the creamiest chocolate... OMG it was so frickin' awesome.... I think I'm gunna roll me kid for her one. @Cbdave and @Fab do yaselves a favour and get one of these delicious little beasts in ya mouth.... your taste buds will thank you..... and did you know... Wizz Fizz was invented in Melbourne.... where all the best Aussie shit comes from 😜 for you poor deprived non-Aussies... this is Wizz Fizz.... the rubber gloves don't make it look dodgy at all... and so me mates know what to look for down the shops.... this is a Wizz Fizz Creme Egg

  22. I used to be an equal opportunity smoker...loved me a good old woohoo smoke but chain smoked when stressed... How did I do it... by realising that having a smoke was not going to cure me, get me a new job, pay the bills, put food on the table, erase my past hurts, comfort me, answer any of my questions.....and have the boys and girls here to remind me of all that when I needed it. Actually, learning that instead of helping with stress smoking would increase it and understanding the neurological connection between nicotine addiction and anxiety helped me learn to cope with stressful times without putting something iny mouth and burning it....I will confess when I get super stressed now I will reach for a chewy (non-nrt of course) or I'll suck a mint ... But for the most it is just life and the one thing I know for a fact that will not help any situation is a smoke. It was also having threads like this to read in the early days that made me realise that it wouldn't help and why, so thanks @Jet Black for starting such a good thread.

    Sitting here crying wanting so bad to smoke

    ^^ It's nice in theory to just cut them from your life but there is a multitude of reasons not to. @Linda Thomas since you first joined our merry band you have taken steps to reduce the impact your parents have on your life. I get why it's so hard to say no and you know what regardless of why you allow your parents to still be in your life I respect that you do because it's a hard choice to make. I don't care if it's a sense of obligation or the fact you are a genuinely caring person (which you are) or if you are living the words "be the person you want others to be" or " do unto others as you would have them do unto you" or even if it's just the little girl inside living in the hopes of a thanks or a well done or a we're proud....or even if it's a mix of all of those... Just because you haven't cut them from you life doesn't mean you can't have whinge or a rant .. you go for it...whatever happens we got ya back babe.

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.
