  1. Wow!!! Thanks Doreeen...and,thanks to everyone! I don’t stop by too often, and was surprised to see this! I remember early in the quit that milestones were a very important part of moving forward. The final reward is that it takes something like this to even remind me that I used to be a smoker! It’s such a distant memory. I owe all my success to the wonderful people on this board for keeping me focused! And, yes, we have another grandson due to make an appearance March 1st! The numbers are still a little off, 8 granddaughters and soon to be 2 grandsons, but everyone is happy and healthy so I would say the numbers are pretty great! I may be popping in a little more often in the weeks to come. Dec.30th I have to have rotator cuff surgery and the Doc says I will be off of work for 3months before I can return to light duty...then 6 months of PT! I’m not one who sits still very good, so this is going to be an extremely long 3 months! My wife already informed me that she is buying a roll of duct tape so she can tape my arm to my side so I don’t screw anything up...lol To all you newbies.... take your quit one day at a time... and if that gets hard to do...take it hour by hour...do whatever you need to do so that you can succeed. Remember...you are not quitting...you DID quit...keep it going!

  3. I missed checking time for a few month, but I’m here and checking in for October!.. still not lighting anything on fire and sticking it in my mouth! .
  4. I remember that day in March, many (6) years ago. Action sent me a private message letting me know about this place... I was struggling with my quit, and quite frankly, I don’t think I would have made it out the other side without the help MQ and this train was able to provide! i want to give a shout out to all of the “original” members...teaming together and getting the word out and building what is this is today! I would like to name a few, but there are way to many, and I wouldn’t want to offend anyone That I forget mention! ..... But I do want give a HUGE thank you to MQ and everyone else who help me to a successful quit!! 6 years and 4 months free! happy belated birthday, a Quit Train ( & crew)
  5. And here is a formal introduction to “Nitis” He is my daughters new constant companion... He’s a full blooded Frenchie, and certainly has all the energy that comes with a pup! caution....cuteness overload!

    -12 i might..sleeping at night is kinda spotty...after a couple hours, I get sore, and really don’t like the buzz from the pain killers, so I try to skip them when I can...

    -12 hey D!... popping in for a bit... Seems my gall bladder got a bit angry with me last week so , I had it out Friday... got to stay down for a bit, and I seem to remember teaching chicks how to count would pass time!
  9. I don’t log on here much, but happen to see the March roll call...soo here I am, sticking my nose in for a brief minute.... happy to see a lot of long timers and some new ones! Train keeps a rollin!
  10. Hi!!! thats all.... seriously.. been extremely busy, both with work and play., and more importantly, still smoke free!! the work part sucks, but... it allows me to play! We were in Florida in March, the Outer Banks in May, and we are headed back to the OBX in 3 weeks. We stayed in Kitty Hawk in May, this time we have a house on Hatteras Island, in Rodanthe... we are just far enough North to be clear of all the flooding caused by Dorian. The farther South you go the more devastation there is. i see a lot of the old familiar faces, and quite a few new ones! i will need to check back in when I have a little more time and report on all the girls (and grandson!) i will also need to read up on how everyone here is doing.. i hope you are all ok and life is treating you good..
  11. Have a great time, and don’t forget to relax!!

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.
