"IF YOU ARE NOT RIDING WITH US, YOU ARE MISSING THE TRAIN"

ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ABOARD!!!!!!!!! Tommy

There are a lot of new people here, and this is also a reminder for those who may have forgotten! Always remember your lifelines!

If you should have a serious craving use all of your lifelines before you smoke!

#1. Ask The Audience! Come here and tell us that you are in danger, and why! Wait 15 minutes for us to respond! Give us that opportunity to help you! That is why we are here!

#2. Phone A Friend! Befriend someone here that you feel you can trust! EXchange phone numbers with that person! If you are in a situation that you can not handle on your own, call or tEXt that person!

#3. 50/50! Make two list! The first list should be all the reasons you should not smoke! The second list should be all the reasons you should smoke! Now take the second list and mark out all of the "EXcuses" to smoke! EXcuses and reasons are two very different things! If there is anything left on the second list let me know!Keep your first list handy. Read it, if any of the "EXcuses" try to steal your quit!

T'is the week before Christmas and all over the site,

New members keep coming, a very welcome sight!

The veterans stop in, offering everyone lifts,

Between their errands, to go out and buy gifts!

We all think of the triggers the season will bring.

And we remember the reasons we gave up that Thing!

The stench, the coughing, and the gasping for air,

Are now distant memories, we have happiness to share!

Let us all keep our FOCUS, not lose DETERMINATION,

MERRY CHRISTMAS fellow Exer's, and my Congratulation!

Thank you everyone!

Posted by pir8fan Dec 14, 2013

Thank you for all of your prayers! I had another heart catheterization yesterday! I did not announce it in a blog because I figured it is somewhat routine for me these days! Most of you are aware of the quadruple by-pass I had last year! There is one small artery that refuses to play nice, and as a results I have had 4 caths in the last 16 months! Yesterday was the fourth one! I am happy to report that all went well and I am recovering quietly!

Again, thank you all for you prayers and well wishes, and a BIG thank you to Shawn for keeping you updated!

Foolish thoughts!

Posted by pir8fan Dec 12, 2013

I do not watch a lot of television! Football and Jeopardy is about it! However, I did see a commercial the other day with a line that made me go "WOW"!

Brian Urlacker and Ray Lewis are future Hall of Fame pro football players who retired last year! They do a commercial together where Urlacker is calling Lewis, on game day, and asking it he is missing playing! Lewis claims not to miss the game at all! Meanwhile, he is dressing in his uniform, with lampblack under his eyes and wrapping his wrist with tape! He denies what is in his head! And he tells Urlacker "Only a fool trips on what's behind him!" BAM! What a line!! "Only a fool trips on what's behind him!"

My message to you today is twofold!

#1. It is OK to admit that you miss smoking (we all do), but please understand that you miss it because you are an addict! Dig deep enough to understand that you do not miss the things that smoking did to you, or what it cost you! Understand the magic moments in life that you failed to witness because you were off somewhere else feeding your addiction! Understand the cost not only in treasure, but in treasured moments!

#2. Keep your Focus, and keep moving forward! You can only trip on what is behind you if you take a step back! And, that would be foolish! You my friend are not a fool! Do not fall prey to foolish thinking!
