Well Good Moring fellow NOPErs.... welcome to Saxophone Day... who doesn't love some good sax.... I have 3 and you know what since I quit I started playing them again.. and definately got more breath...but today is the day a race stops the nation, and those of us living in Melbourne get a public holiday just so we can watch the great race... that's right boys and girls today will be the 157th running of the Melbourne Cup.... the most prestige horse race in Australia and one of the greatest distance races in the world. 24 horses and their jockies will spend the 3-4 minutes of today hurtling around Flemington Racecourse to the cheers of a 100,000 plus crowd cheering their horse on... for 3,218m or 2 mile these majestic beasts will leave it all on the track... fortunes will be made and lost and drunken girls will walk home with their fancy shoes in their hands.... so for those punters out there... wait for the track assessment, its been raining on and off for the past 4 hours... think we might be looking at a softer track than normal.... will favour the Europeans... this years field has the usual Aussie and Kiwi contingent but in the true multicultural nature of the race there are also horses from Ireland, England, Germany, France, Japan and for the first time ever Scottland. So me grandad was a bookie... he said only mugs bet on the cup... but always put a bet on 2 and 6 for the quinella as that was his dad's unit... so that's my only tip... If there is a horse with a cracking name I'll have a punt but otherwise I just 2&6 it... comes up sometimes...  I am really looking forward to my first smoke free cup in over a decade... will be so much better than getting nervy in a close race and going outside for a smoke and settling on the call on the tranny. I'll get to watch the whole thing this year.




NOPE ... there are enough mugs in the world without me being one.

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.
