Hi Dee!  Glad to see you're leading another May group ;D  Can you guess how long it's been for me this month?

I'm doing well and thought I'd stop by and say congrats to the new group for the best decision they will make in life.

Love ya

Hey Rich, 

Good to see you here! Glad that you're doing so well.  Next July 23 at 6:26 PM Eastern time I will begin my 8th year smoke free.  When I recall the year we quit and the struggles of all our buddies in the group I really appreciate  the bond and camaraderie we all shared.  As we used to say, "Keep on keepin' on"!

Thank you for the introduction! Hope I can join the May 2020 quit group :)

Good Morning (7:47 am here in east coast us at least).  Are you native Filipino or a transplant?  Someone my dad knows a man who just a had a baby with a young Filipino woman. 

Funny story: he is in his 60's, she is her 20's .. he met her online and has been there to visit her a few times.  She just had the baby last week and he is planning on retiring there in a few years.

I know you have a real hurting economy in some parts of the country.  He is middle class here but said he will be extremely rich in the Phillipines.

Funny story this guy and his much younger online baby mamma.  He is an odd duck.  You guys can keep him!  LOL

Have a pleasant smoke free day.  Keep in touch.

Both my parents are Filipino and I was born here in the Philippines. You are absolutely right, we are a third world country and poverty is a problem. Indeed funny that I am wasting a lot of money in cigarettes despite financial difficulties. Maybe this is a good motivation to stop :)
