New Years Eve

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Dec 30, 2016

 

Wouldn't it be just awful to start the new year at  Day One again?

Drinking and smoking go together.

Please play it safe.  A quit is a terrible thing to lose.

What is the Freedom Train?  https://excommunity.becomeanex.org/blogs/ShawnP-blog/2016/04/26/what-is-the-freedom-train

 

If you are new here, this vehicle provides a place for everyone to gather to 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" and we will help you sort it out.

 

How do I count my days? Your personal quit count is located on the “My Quit Plan” tab: http://www.becomeanex.org/my-quit-plan.php#

 

From time to time we have questions about counting days. While we encourage everyone to celebrate every day of their freedom, here on the Freedom Train we count the days you have completed. For example, Tommy quit on 01/01/2010. On 12/31/2010 he had reached 365 days. However, he had not completed a year until 01/01/2011.

smoking and drinking just go together because well, they just DO!  So, why would you choose to drink? 

Please think twice at holiday parties.  A quit is a terrible thing to lose!

Don't be like this Santa!   Smoking when you drink just kind of follows.  Be careful as you attend holiday gstherings.  A quit is a terrible thing to lose.

Holiday Parties

Posted by Youngatheart.7.4.12 Dec 9, 2016

Please let a site member's experience inform you:

"I was quit for 10 years and being a bit tipsy at a party bummed a cigarette from a friend & smoked it. A couple weeks later I had another one. It took awhile but I eventually stopped & bought a pack & smoked for 8 years. All because of that ONE."

 

Nancy

Quitting smoking never killed anybody - but it WILL make you stronger.

(just don't mess with bears and you will be fine)

Image result for drunk

yet - because he needs both hands!

What do you think might be the point at which his addled brain will tell him that "just one" will be OK because "no one will know?"  Remember - there is no such thing as "just one" to an addict.

Please keep your quit your #1 priority this weekend and if you must drink, limit it to one.  Sparkling water is a good rest of the night drink - or sparkling cranberry juice.
