Greetings Quitness Protection Program `11 Group!

 

Welcome to the new forum and your quit buddy group thread! This is still the place where you can continue to get quit help, information and just hang out and get to know each .

Settle in and get comfortable. This is your home base, but the entire forum is here for you. ;-)

Hello!

In 2 days I get my wings!  Is anyone else still here from 5 years ago?  Looks like our old accounts have been removed.  Missing all my quit buddies.

Hey Lou!

i am still here!  I frequent the sensational seniors and have gotten to know the girls quite well...lol.  Isn't it amazing to think it's been 5 years.  My anniversary was on the 9th.  I occasionally think about cigarettes but would never ever have another as it is just not in my DNA anymore!  Why bother?  Been there...done that...not going to do it again!

Bonjour Louise,

Finally, I managed to create an account on this new forum. My 5 year mark was almost a month ago. Everyone in my family forgot the date, except my wife. I didn’t find any new Matt video but I assure you I watched all the old ones. Still loving them. I miss my quit buddies too.

Hello Donna,

I knew I find you here. I expected an email from about.com alerting for new posts, I didn’t know they changed the forum. I don’t think about cigarettes. Actually, I spent two weeks last summer in the company of smokers, not even a junky thought about. I know you fly sometimes to Australia. Did you meet any of our Aussi friends? I know someday I will visit my friends in Edmonton.

Hi Gabser

So glad you found the forum again and are still among the quitters.  I view the Matt videos from time to time. He is putting together a new one right now I believe, or at least trying to get the money together for one.

I have to remind me and my friends on facebook at my anniversary every years of my continuation with the quitting.  I'm still so proud of myself.  I can be around smokers, and most recently in a casino that allowed smoking (blick) and have no desire to start again. That is a wonderful feeling.

I hope we continue this yearly reunion for the rest of our long lives.

Hey Gabser:

Good to hear from you.  Yes, it is quite amazing to not be on the smoke leash anymore.  I do THINK about it sometimes when I am bored, but it's a thought not an action that I will ever start again.  It is part of my past and I will not revert to who I was!!  I never did meet up with Terri or Wendy.  Terri kind of "disappeared" and Wendy did too.  However, I do have great friends in Aussie and they have never smoked.  Seems like at my senior age that most seniors have finally got the message.  Very few of us smoke anymore...thank goodness.  I did stand by a letter in Costco today who smelled yucky....guess that used to be me!!  

Let me know when you are coming to the west!
