halloween theme is a great idea...we can trick or treat, we can bob for apples or cocos, and we get to start thinking of a costume, unless you want to wear the one from the night before...

Michelle, you are part of the family, and we cna't wait to see your costume for the party....
Curly bongo needs a costume now....
Keep the quit and let's find everyone and invite them to the Halloween Party....
stay strong, and keep smiling, your lungs thank you, Hellven

YEAH! The first trials start this month! We only had to wait 5 YEARS to be heard! I hope Trish comes to your party, lol!

Let's see, do those lives LOST add up to what you "think" you have gained? You could have quit smoking with support and no drug substitute. Don't be so happy about being weak! You have to learn self control.

Now it is time for some real fun ... it is called REAL LIFE to those in cyber land!

REUNION DAY and CONGRATULATIONS to all of us quitters, no matter how we got here.

Curly, Hellven & PRMike, I'll strap the sidecar on my Harley and bring along my two nicotine-free biker chick friends, all of us dressed as pirates for our KTQ Cyber Party next month.

I won't need an tats or piercings for my costume as my two ladies (using the term loosely) have enough for all. You say no naked animals as mascots? Hmmmm ...

Hello yall;
I haven't been on this thread for a long time.
I just wanted to let everyone know that it's going to be my 4th anniversary I quit smoking within the next month and I never looked back at my bad habits.
The 1st year was probably hard, b/c it's not easy to get rid of a 24 years smoking addictions, and then you get back to normal after that.
I was able to quit with chantix, otherwise I think i would still be smoking. When I took the pill, the 1st times, I was smoking more than ever, than I quit the pill and went back on it 1 month later. I gradually raised the dosage (went from half a pill a day to 1 whole pill 3 days later). I believe that the 4th day, I quit smoking, and I was on the pill no more than 2 weeks (because i heard that some people said it could be bad). It was extraordinary to be smoke free just 4 days later.
Once you are off the pill, you have to wean off slowly, but you may have withdrawals, and it does not come from the pill but from the fact you quit smoking, but it isn't that bad (cold sweats, hard time to focus), and they don't last that long, for my case i believe it lasted 3 weeks.
Some people can quit without chantix and my hat's off to them, i tried to do it without and I was not able to do it, so the pill really helped me.
Do not forget to exercise and to change your diet once you quit smoking. I gained around 40 pounds in 2 months, and it was hard to shred them off. Also since you won't be able to kill the calories with the nicotine, go make a blood draw to be sure everything is fine with your blood test. For my case my cholesterol went up to 411, after I quit smoking (the weight intake affected the cholesterol level).
Frenchie...So glad that you posted! I've thought of you often & hoped that you were able to stay smokefree since you worked so hard at it...I didn't want you to have to through that again!! I wish you the very best in life!!

Reunion Day! And a mere month until the Halloween party. I need to seriously think about what costume to wear. I won't reveal what it is until the day of the party just to keep you guessing!
See you all then!

Happy reunion day! Congratulation for all quits big and small.
I will be celebration 5 years this month! Yippee! I am so thankful that I had the strength to quit with the help of chantix and the people here - and the strength to keep my quit so I would never have to quit again by any method.

A halloween party! Oh what fun!
It will be an after party :)
We can start guessing what everybody will be for halloween and/or what they will wear to the party. Some will be too easy to guess.

Keep on quitting! And celebrate all your milestones!

Happy Reunion Day to everyone !!

I have just spent the last month in Yosemite National Park as a volunteer. What a wonderful experience it was !! I could have never done it as a smoker.... it would have been socially unacceptable and I would not have been able to keep up on all the hikes we did !!

I have been quit for THREE YEARS and 3 days !!

On another note......

During the last 3 years I have seen many new quitters on this board. Some have come and stayed, some have been here only a short while.

Don't you wonder what has happened to them? Did they quit? Once successful, they no longer needed to be here? They relapsed, and don't come here anymore?

Just Wondering.......

CharleyJ, only a small percentage check in after about six months. I have over 300 names in my five year old QuitKeeper meter.

Today is 61 months for PRMike and 59 months that I have been nicotine-free, after 45 years x 2 packs daily. Thank you all for the support.

BTW, my two nicotine-free biker chicks finally agreed who gets to ride my Harley sidecar to our KTQ CyberParty on the first.

"Cuddles" just got out of lockup for piercing a dude's tongue with her toenail for disrespecting her by claiming to be nicotine-free with a cig behind his ear. Lucky for him she was not in a bad mood.

And "Fluffy" agreed to leave her razor collection home this time, so she won't be doing any freelance tats on people. You all will meet my two ladies (using the term loosely) at the party. Now who is bringing the trapeze net this year?
