I Quit Today

Live For Today

This morning I started my morning when I logged on to my computer doing the same thing I do every morning, I quit nicotine.  I’ve been doing it for 7+ years now so you would think I would not need to start my…

Playing with fire

I’m on the cusp of one year quit. Odds are, a year ago right now, I was either chomping on a piece of nicotine gum, or I was thinking about my next piece. In other words, I was playing with fire. Fortunately, fewer…

The Twelve Days of Quitmas

12 Days of Christmas

I posted this earlier in my April ’16 Quit Group … On the first day of Quitmas walterwhite gave to us, a spot on post that made us think. On the second day of Quitmas Palpatine gave to us, two Sith Lords, always…

Pure Hatred

Emperor Return of the Jedi

Dip Dreams and Caves

Chifley Cave - Jenolan Caves

Six Months Quit

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

Summer

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…
