One Hour to Two Years!!

December 31, 2011

 

In about an hour I will have Two Smoke Free Years under my belt! Many of you know the story! I came here kicking and screaming and not wanting to quit! To this day, I feel I was forced to the decision by confiscatory taxes, and inflated insurance rates, and I resent that! But the results are good! I came here expecting a bunch of know-it-all types, who would want to tell me how to run my life! Instead I found a bunch of kind hearted people, who’s only goal was to help me quit!...

Will cooler heads prevail?

December 21, 2011

I come to my favorite community this morning, and find it in turmoil! Seems we have some new badges! That does not mean that there is a new sheriff in town and that we need to move!

In my efforts to help people break this addiction, I have to admit that I have made some mistakes! So have some others! I think we all would agree that the site changes a while back that made EX "not so compatible" with Internet Explorer is a disaster. I can't fix that, and neither can you!... Read full post

Let's be honest here! Please!!

December 15, 2011

In the early days of our quits we come here and pour our hearts out to strangers! We talk about our struggles! We openly admit the troubles we are encountering on our path to Freedom! Soon these strangers become our friends! All of a sudden thing are different! How many of you have said or thought " I don't want to burden my friends with my problems."?

I just put on a fresh pot of coffee, and I would like to invite everyone to wake up and have a sniff! Look around at the... Read full post

Holiday Reminder From Last Year!

December 9, 2011

I know there are a lot of people out there who preparing to quit! Some of you are commenting here and some of you are just lurking and reading and learning what works for some of us! My guess is that a good number of you are looking toward New Years Eve as a quit date. Great! Start the new year with a renewed effort to improve your life!

I do not think this is the best plan! Has anyone ever started a year with grand plans before? How did that work for you? A lot of folks make "New... Read full post

I am 5 Years Old Today!

December 6, 2011

Some of you may say that I act that way everyday! But today it is true! My doctor in Mt Pleasant, SC said so! Five years ago today they sliced me like a side of beef, and removed my left kidney! Renal cell carcinoma! Kidney cancer! I was the luckiest man to ever have cancer! They took the kidney and the cancer out! 10 days later they took the staples out! I ask the doctor when I needed to come back, and he said "You don't"! Just that simple! No radiation! No chemo! Doctor Thomas... Read full post

700 Days!! What happened???

December 2, 2011

 

As a lot of you know, I came to this quit kicking, and screaming, because my ability to smoke was under attack by my insurance company, and confiscatory government taxes, that discriminate against one demographic. Smokers! I still recognize the hypocrisy of a government that refuses to make tobacco illegal, but never fails to add a tax on it when they get the chance. But I digress!

What happened? On the eighth day of my quit I saw a TV commercial for this site! I came here, and... Read full post
