Five Years my friends!  Seems like yesterday I was on here for the first time.making my plan and pledge.  And then I was on here a LOT during my first year or two giving and receiving support.  And here I am again to say hi and thanks again to all of YOU that have been there for me and still are.  SINAO my friends.  Love you all!


DAY 1655

Posted by jimmie-a-littrell Aug 8, 2019

Hello friends - just a quick update.  I had a thoracotomy to remove lung cancer - seems to have been a success, will get biopsy next week.  Pretty traumatic operation.  UGH.  Please stop smoking now if you haven't already.

Hello friends!  Just wanted to let you know that I have survived the kidney removal and all is well.  Up and about, almost healed.  Looking forward (?) to lung surgery next month.  thank you all so much for your support.  NOPE and SINAO.

Thanks for all the support my friends - it means the world to me!!!  I will have a kidney removed on June 18 laparoscopically.  Minimally invasive.  Should be recovered enough for lung surgery by mid July!!!  Did I mention that I hate hospitals???


NOPE and SINAO.  My new mission statement - I will die healthy even if I die trying!!


Love you all - will keep you posted.


DAY 1548

Update - kidney and lung cancer.  Bummer!!!  Will lose the kidney and part of a lung but then I will be OK (I think!)  Good thoughts all around!!!  Love you all and god bless us all.


DAY 1540

Posted by jimmie-a-littrell Apr 15, 2019

Hello friends - hope you are all well.  I have been an ex for over 4 years now and very happy about it.  I did, however, just find out that I have lung cancer.  Just a little one.  I already lost a bunch of teeth.  So ... any of you that are on the fence about quitting?  Get off that fence and do your damnedest to save your health and your life!!!


I will check back as more info becomes available.  Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayers!

DAY 1,000

Posted by jimmie-a-littrell Oct 21, 2017

A very sincere thank you to all my friends that remembered, especially my quit bud Jackie!  it is a great trip we are on and I am thankful for all of you - my fellow exers, that make it so cool!

For any newbies out there - you will get here!  For informations's sake - I no longer have any craves, don't remember the last one.  The smell of smoke is sickening.  I am saving around $10/day (I live in Cali).  And I just got my first cold since quitting!

So God bless all of us and keep us strong!

Today is Day 950 but the headline looks more impressive!  Congrats to my buddy Jackie on a wonderful 950 as well and Bonnie Bee right behind us giving support all the time!  And thanks to all of you who support us every day!!!


and thanking you all!!!  WE ARE AWESOME!!!  Anybody with doubts just needs to hang here a few hours.  You folks are the REAL DEAL and I love you all and I could not be doing it without you.
