Bonfire Final Count

Posted by ShawnP Champion Feb 25, 2019

 

OUR FINAL COUNT IS:

2,895,441

We have beat our all time high! The previous number was  2,635,592. We beat it by 259,849!!!

Pat yourself on the back. This is the total of 72 of us that chose not to smoke. I would like to thank everybody that contributed, especially the newbies. There is a list at the end of the blog. I would like to especially thank Giulia for helping out with those hilarious face in the hole pics. haha. Also, special thanks to Christine and others that posted food and music as well. We pulled this off TOGETHER!!! 

Here is the link for those that couldn't make it, that would like to have a laugh.

 Winter Bonfire Is Now Beginning 

Welcome! The bonfire is now starting. It will continue through Sunday night midnight 11:59 EST. For those that aren't familiar with our bonfires, the fuel for the fire is your unsmoked cigarettes. It would be your days quit x how many cigarettes that you USED to smoke. You can use this Bonfire Cigarette Calculator to automatically record your numbers to me or you can do it manually. If doing manually, please also include your quit date and how much you had smoked. You can find your days quit here...My EX Plan | BecomeAnEX   Here is a EX Quit Calculator - Google Sheets  if you want to check  other statistics. 

 

Our goal tonight is a standard of 1 million. We usually do more. Our highest has been  2,635,592.

 

Feel free to post music, food or funny images. Please note that we do have to abide by "no copyright material". This site provides links to free pics . We are also having costumes. What can be more funnier than trying out different figures, animals etc? haha

Here are links that you can use....

1. FACEinHOLE® - Who do you want to be today?

Welcome!! I have started the fire. We need you to keep this fire burning! The fire will continue til Sunday midnight wherever you may live. This is how to calculate your fuel for the fire. It is your number of days that you are smoke free  multiplied by how many that you used to smoke per day. If you need additional help, contact me. If you don't want to keep getting notifications from this post, click on actions above and uncheck following.

 

We usually have a standard goal of 1 million but we have exceeded this number by at least double. Let's see what we can do!!!

   Are you on the right track?

 

 

Well these two quitters are.  Miles apart but on the same track to Freedom!  They've passed the same scenery in the beginning of their quits, stoked their own fires and had a caboose load of supporters here to cheer them on.  You can pass the same milestones, whether it be 100 days or 5 years.  The right track is waiting for you.  Hop on board any time!  Every smoke-free breath is a celebration worthy of a train ride.
