  1. Hi Doreen, good to see I am not the only one awake but I am about tp drop.

    Just wanted to give you personal thanks for making me so welcome to the board and your help in how things work.  I think I may have traded one addiction for another;  This is the habit I want to keep

      Really the UK, how cool! I have an infatuation with your country.

      I dream of living in a country village in a sweet little village where I would  be able to walk to the shops. I see your life there, based off the BBC.  Shows like Doc Martin, I would love to live in that place.

       

      Speaking of breakfast the bread I have been baking is called English Muffin Bread, it is kind of like Cottage bread great for toast.

       

      Now since we have connected on the site if you teach me all things British, I will teach you all things Texan.

       

      I am going to go have some toast now.

  3. Geez Steven, sounds like the last few days have been hell for you.  You need to try some distraction. I don't know you and so have no clue what might help.  Just have to go off my list.

    Big glass jar on coffee table full of soft and hard peppermint, butterscotch, werthe

    rs hard  caramel, dum dum lollipops, life savers, all your favorite gums.

     

    Second jar...all your favorite nuts, some in shell so you have to work for it, peanuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, harder to shell pecans, almonds, walnuts, my personal favorite, brazil nuts!

    Put a bowl next to this jar with nut crackers and use the bowl for shells.  If you are married or have a girlfriend DO not make a mess and leave it.

     

    Next off to the hobby shop, for me puzzles, color fine images with markers and pencils.  Looking into taking crochet lessons. These may not interest you but were men there looking at all kind of models to build and paint.  Also, home brewing your own beer,  looking into making your own jerky and dried fruits and veggies. Really big here in Dallas/Fort Worth.

    My favorite is dehydrated okra.

     

    And as everyone here has taught me water, water, more water.  I know it is a cheat thing but i do have some nicotine lozenges for emergencies for my protection and for an innocent bystander who might be in the wrong place and the wrong time if I felt an explosion coming on.

     

    Just find something you enjoy that you can do at home and then when you need to get out, bowling, roller skating, ice skating and my new fav, going to the arcade!

     

    Sorry to be long winded. Just be happy you don't have to hear my voice.

      Steven I am so sorry to hear about Katherine and I do understand the pain and grief. I lost my husband to skin cancer 10 1/2 years ago and I am still not over it.  I should not be drinking either but i can't give up two things at the same time. I am so glad that you are continuing your relationship with Sam. He will draw strength from you and his bio Dad, that he still matters in your life even if his Mom is gone.  My situation is the same, my grandson is not of my blood but of my heart. He does not look like me or my son.  His Mom is Japanese/White,

      Bio dad is Latino.  My son and I just plain old white.  Asher has been our family since he was 6 months old. He and his Mom lived with us for 3 1/2 years while they saved for the wedding and for down payment on their own home.  He is already in my will to make sure funds are set aside for college.

      As far as health goes, I had to have a hip replacement about 3 months ago due to AVN (avascular necrosis you can google it) due to smoking and drinking (which I did alot of when my husband died).

      I have no musical talent other than turning on the stereo and dancing while I clean house.

      My son is a great trumpet player and his wife plays the flute. Just getting the grandson started on the keyboard. 

      You might try the nicotine lozenges, you just put them under your tongue and they melt slowly. the gum did not agree with me either.  I found the best price on these thru Amazon.

      I do not have COPD but my insurance carrier just added CT of the chest covered once a year.

      Had that done and it showed the beginning of emphysema.  So here I am.

      Sorry to type your ear off, we can do this and our word search books and coloring projects.

      Have a great evening.

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.
