A Blog By Quitters For Quitters

Dip Dreams and Caves

Chifley Cave - Jenolan Caves

I’m going to try a once per month update. My quit is going well. Cravings are pretty much a thing of the past. Every once in a while, a strong one will hit really fast out of nowhere, and then be gone. About…

Six Months Quit

I hit the six month mark this past weekend. Part of me can’t believe I’m six months quit. But a bigger part of me sure can believe it – I’ve put my heart and soul into this quit. For the past six months,…

Randomness in the middle of summer

KillTheCan Logo

The Fourth of July is said by some to be the midpoint of the summer. I thought I’d come back here and post some random thoughts. I’m almost at the six month point of my quit. Sometimes I can hardly believe I’ve made…

My daughter and gum

Gum

This is the first time I’ve posted directly from my phone, so I expect this will be short. My 10yo and I went in to town last night to get some stuff. As we pulled out of the driveway, she asked me if…

My confession

Confession

HoF Week

Gold HOF Coin

It’s my HoF week. My day 100 is Saturday, the last day of the month. One other quit brother and I will be the last to board the train. Making HoF on the last day of the month gives a neat perspective. I’m…
