Just trying something out...fun to see what will work and what won't!!

Four years, five months, two weeks, two days, 11 hours, 47 minutes and 56 seconds. 22826 cigarettes not smoked, saving $10,043.57. Life saved: 11 weeks, 2 days, 6 hours, 10 minutes.

 OK that works on the laptop, however, not sure of the keystrokes on the Mac or ipad!!

And next   That worked....it's my 4 1/2 keys...lol

However, need to figure out how to resize.

And did anyone notice that we can reply with "quoted text"?  That is awesome!!smile_cat

No worries (((Susan))). I'm glad that I am able to help. All of us will figure it out...one technological hiccup at a time :-) It took me a little bit to figure out how to save Miss Kitty's picture from the website page but where there is a will there is always a way!

How cool is that?  Jenn, you are a gem, helping everyone get going on this forum....thank you so much...you have come soooo far my friend, I am soooo proud of you and your strength!!

Dear Jenn,

It's all so true.......where there is a will....there is a way.  That goes way back to the beginning days of our quit too!

I needed your calmness when for three days I worked on a communication problem between laptop and printer.  THREE times of downloading the drivers and software and guess what the third time was a charm!  Oh my, the patience we must have with technology.  Have a good day!  ((hugs))  Susan

Okay, dear Donna,

You are WAY AHEAD of all of us.......So you upgraded from Basic?  I miss my "bluebird" (wings).  I know I will break down sooner or later and part with $19.95 or whatever it is....  Just think, back in the day that would have been four packs of ugly ciggies..... Ugh.  

 

So happy we are all NO longer a part of that all.  I happened upon a newcomers sight.  To tell you the truth, reading all of the frustration and desperation, I just had to get off the thread.  Those memories are still in my mind if I think about it.  It was AWFUL and I will never, in a million years, return to that place of despair.

((hugs))  Susan

No, I don't think (to me), that it is worth it to upgrade.  I just inserted the pic from my desktop.

I understand about reading the newbie discussions.  Its kinda hard, isn't it!  We can still vividly remember those days.

Hmmmm.

So you just insert your keys at the end of each message?

I shall try that.

I'm always on the edge of the "cheap"....well not really, but sometimes I am.  I question web-sites that need to make money.  I do dislike the ads always popping up but I can live with that.

I may try and hunt my bluebird down....wow...that should take a day or so...  ((hugs))  Susan

Soooo...  Do you have the $10,000 stored away in a coffee can that you saved from smoking?   

Wouldn't that be just the ULTIMATE.   I could go down to Kitty's Paradise for three with not a worry.  LOL

Five years and nine months smoke free and about $10,500 saved...... Wow........Five years and nine months that my lungs have been free of smoke and tar and all of the gunk.  Yes, I can barely read them....I could in the beginning and I would help others.....I don't know now......because I just want to say QUIT.....  and we all know it is NOT THAT EASY.
