Maybe we can get a regional get together in Chicago for Illinois Quitters, Wisconsin Quitters and Indiana Quitters. SarahP, indingrl.01.06.2011 Jacque-smoke-freedom and rosycowgirl can come.

Yeah, that would be great! I live on the north side of the city and work
downtown-- I don't have a car, but can travel via public transit.
@Mark and @rosycowgirl I don't live too far from Chicago
More people from Chicago than I thought!
kristen_9.7.15 That's true. There are several people in the Milwaukee area so it would be pretty easy to get a Milwaukee/Chicago meet-up together.
Yes, we have gregp136, meWisconsin crazymama_Lori and bacardigirl are in Wisconsin.
Huck3 and ajz are somewhere in IL. And shashort sounds interested!

Hi! I live in the chicago area! Northwest suburbs and work in the Northern suburbs.
Oh awesome! The list keeps growing! Sounds like a meet-up is definitely in the future!
Hey Gang! I'm in the southwest suburbs, so I am in! I think it would be very cool.

That's awesome! Glad to see the numbers growing!
RANDAC1 joins us from Chicago as well! Welcome!
I was thinking of planning an Architectural Boat tour downtown Chicago on a Saturday or a Sunday this summer. Maybe get dinner or lunch somewhere as well. Would anyone be interested in that? Please let others know if you know they're in the chicago area.
Looks like the following people might be within driving distance:

Yes WE would love to join you Mark and everyone who joins this new adventure fun in recovery is so good! Thanks for thinking of inviting me I do appreciate you Mark.
Sounds good to me too Mark Count me in!
Great to hear all the positive responses! jeanbean213 seems to be the newest to join the area!
Still getting acclimated to this site. Thanks for including me. I welcome any tips, tricks, or advice This isn't my first rodeo but I know for sure that even making it a few years out without cigarettes doesn't guarantee you are safe from the demons! That's the lesson I learned from my last quit of 2 1/2 years. It's day 3 and I'm doing better because I learned from the last quit that I can do this.
jeanbean213 Keep connected to the site. The support offered here is amazing. If you're here (on your phone, computer or tablet) then you're not smoking.
I ran into another fellow Illinois resident....jtheo.
Another Chicago resident... Losgunna
kristen-9.7.15 Thanks! I'm looking to see in September what our options might be to get together. August is already booked for me.
Welcome jtheo and Losgunna!
Thanks, probably have been some more added to Chicagoland, Chicago and Milwaukee. And other surrounding areas in the drop-down.
Probably too cold now will need to plan for April/May now. I'll look at some dates and then put up a little poll to see what people could do.
Don't worry about it Mark. Every time I see a new person from Chicago I just add them here; not to have you plan a get-together
