Good morning fellow EXer's! The Freedom Train is on the tracks, and prepared to make it's daily run to Freedom from smoking! Everyone is invited to come aboard to celebrate their own personal Freedom, and that of their friends!!

If you are new here, this vehicle provides an area for everyone to gather and celebrate the milestones, and successes of those in our community! There are no tickets! The fuel for this locomotive is love and caring! The rides on this Train are paid for in contributions to the quits of others! The only thing required to ride this Train is a desire to breathe Free! We encourage everyone to join in the celebration! No matter where you are in your quit, today is special, and is cause for celebration! Celebrate with others, and they will celebrate with you! There are no baggage fees! Bring all your "EXtra baggage"! We will help you sort it out!

From time to time we do have questions about counting days. While we encourage everyone to celebrate everyday of their Freedom, here at the Freedom Train we count the days you have completed! For EXample I quit on 01/01/2010. On 12/31/2010 I had reached 365 days. However, I had not completed a year until 01/01/2011! Please feel free to address any questions or suggestions to me at any time! https://excommunity.becomeanex.org/people/pir8fan

Now, we encourage you to come aboard today! Shout out your personal milestones, and those of your friends! Show your pride in your quit! 2 Days, 200 Days or 2000 Days! More, if you have them! Let us hear from you, and let us all celebrate our FREEDOM!! Post food and music! IT IS PARTY TIME!!!

This Train is bound for FREEDOM from the Evils tobacco and smoking!!

Happy Spring!

They have a live streaming feed of an eagle's  nest online every spring (the link above is the one from the National Arboretum in DC) , and you get to watch the eggs being laid, sat upon (the parents take turns), turned, hatched, grow up and take their first flight.  The most amazing thing I saw was their practice for flight.....they would get a running start at one side of the nest and flap their way to the other day after day. Eventually, they just stood on the side of the nest and took that leap of faith.  I understand from my reading that, in fact, not every flight is successful. I was lucky enough to be watching two that WERE!

 

Kinda' like quitting smoking? You practice and get as ready as you can and then, in the beginning, you just flap the heck out of your wings, learning to fly without the safety of the nest.

 

Even if you are afraid, take that leap of faith. I am here to tell you that, like my eaglets, you can soar!

Your quit needs to remain your #1 priority - so please don't drink.  You might lose it.  You might not, but why take the chance?

We know a LOT of quits have been lost over time from drinking alcohol.  With the weekend coming, I thought it would be helpful to illustrate by  example.

Hands up!!!
