Good Arvo fellow NOPErs ... It was too cold to take the gloves off and post this morning (just for giggles, my too cold is 8c, so just for the Americans who use F...46.4)....so normally today I'd be giving a shout out to Juneteenth for our friends from the land of the free, seeing as this heralds when it became more true BUT there is a pretty big birthday that is happening today.... Happy 70th Birthday to NASCAR "stock car only" racing....who on this day in 1949 held their first ever race at the Charlotte Speedway...not Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is a completely different track....so to be technical NASCAR was founded in Feb 1948 and before the 19th June 1949 they held numerous races, mainly in dirt tracks, with the first being in Daytona, BUT these were open to all cars, the 19 June 1949 saw the first stock car only event... So while any NASCAR race will never hold a candle to Bathurst (those drivers don't need to dodge roos for starters) 70 continuous years of racing deserves a woohoo..


Watching cars go round and round tracks super fast...that's a hell yeah..


Smoking a ciggie....that's NOPE...every day

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.
