Good morning! Thanks for opening the cafe, Pati. I'm the first to arrive this morning, and am happy to be here. Your skills are showing, friend. The cafe looks fantastic!!
Yeah! My buddies susan_m and Pops first at the new EX Café! Hi, Susan and Pops! Hope you like EXpresso - there's a cup of Great-to-be-an EX waiting for you at the counter for being the first ones here.
Good morning EXers!!!! Let me get the day started with a strong cup'o'Joe this morning please. I'll be sitting over in the corner with Susan. She's going to make my coffee sweeter. ;-) What a great way to start this 253rd day of freedom!!!
I love what you have done with the place.
Good Morning:) What a great way to start the day! This place is truly warm and inviting. Thank You.
You guys warm my heart. While we are having a quiet cup of coffee, go check out mikecity's daily encouragement post from this morning. I was shocked to read that he was mugged and may have to have his mouth wired shut!! God bless him!
thanks for the heads up, Susan. Heading over to Mike's mikecity

Let's have a marvelous Day - Smoke FREE!
Hazelnut Mocha Latte for me!
Yum! That is so on the coffee menu; thanks. We need some new awards, 'cause you deserve one Thomas3.20.2010 for your idea of meeting here, and for this great cup of coffee!
Hi RachelMB! Good morning, Michwoman!
Here's another [hint] everyone - did you know that you can right-click on the author of a comment's avatar and copy it to paste for the quickest @link of all?
Good morning everyone, the Feb Pledge is posted https://excommunity.becomeanex.org/thread/6174-the-daily-pledge-february-2017 and I have opened a discussion the meeting place 02/01/2017.
I'll take a strong black coffee and head on over to say hi to Mike and see if Marilyn has posted her daily inspiration and then check on some newbies. Shew the way I'm feeling I'll be ready for a nap by then! ~Terrie~
Good morning everyone. Hope you all said "rabbits foot" 3 times this morning before talking to anyone. That is supposed to bring you luck for the new month which is now February. Enjoying the coffee at the new café. Have a wonderful smoke free day.

Good morning! This is a great café, thanks for opening! Glad to be here on day 7!
Congrats on day 7!! A whole week!!! That's awesome!!!!
Thanks! Congrats on losing 5 lbs...that is really wonderful and especially amazing that you're doing it while quitting!
emomma25 I didn't worry about my weight in the beginning of my quit. All my concentration was on my quit. That was the most important. I think at almost 1.5 years quit, its safe to try and lose the weight! LOL
Hi meWisconsin! Hi emomma25! First of all - rabbitfootRABBITFOOTrabbitfoot.
I'm off to breakfast. See you later.
c2q - thanks for the hint - this is fantastic..... so much easier than using the @ symbol!!! I am going to be a regular at this café if I am going to get such useful pointers!
Good morning I love what you've done to the cafe!
Morning gang! RabbitRabbitRabbit.
Good Morning All! Don't forget to keep mikecity in your prayers! And don't forget to ride the train! Freedom Train 02-01-2017
Good morning ! Having my cup of coffee before I head out for another long day on the road. Have yourself a good day. I am enjoying my quit. Love the rabbits. We had rabbits when I was young growing up. My prayers for Mike.
Hello! another cup of coffee strong and black, please, to go, I still gotta go see Marilyn and see what else might be happening! I have FOMO fear of missing out! ~Terrie~
Hahahaha - that was funny, Terrie_Quit!!!
No coffee for me. I started a biggest loser contest at work so I got rid of the coffee with TONS of cream and sugar..... Tea please
lot's of cream and sugar abut makes it a mile shake! haha!
Hey kristen-9.7.15 - I am cutting carbs, so I am drinking my coffee black now. I used to drink it with 1 tsp of sugar and a generous amount of whole milk. Well, 65 calories and 8 carbs per cup is a bit much, so black coffee it is. I initially thought it was going to be the Worst. Thing. Ever. I then decided that it could not be worse than quitting smoking, and enjoyed two cups of strong black coffee this morning. I didn't LOVE it, but I did it.
Green tea in the afternoon for me, but I cannot survive (and, neither can humanity, really) unless I have coffee.
I've tried the black coffee and I can't do it. YUCK!!!!! I've lost 5 pounds in a week and a half
Good morning all and welcome to February! I'll take a nice big cup of that expresso, thank you. It's cold here this morning but the sun is out, I have more errands to run, going to be playing catch up because of my vacation...apparently, for a while.
Hey, Ellen, it's good to see you!
Hi sophia-22, Giulia , Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14, tjanddj , kristen-9.7.15 and elvan! I see the barista has set out a tray of fresh hot coffee and tea for everybody. There's Black Eye (dripped coffee with a double shot of espresso), Black Tie (Iced Thai Tea with sugar and cream), Café Au Lait (equal parts espresso and scalded milk), Raspberry tea, and cappuccino. I think I see a milk shake over there, too. I hope she got you orders right.
Wow I'll take the cappuccino please!
Hey, I'm here!
Sorry to be late! I got ambushed by a peach Danish and a cup o' Joe brought by a neighbor!
Wishing everyone a hop to it and be peachy day!
Hi Nancy where do you get all of these great images?
I just do a Google search (your search criteria will count - I looked for hey there wave - or something like that - the more creative you get, the more creative the image - and spend some timing looking at the results and change your search if you don't see something that tickles your fancy!)
I'll take a nice hot cup of delicious Hot Chi Tea!!!!
I'll take a smooth one with lots of milk, pinch of sugar, please. Anyone know where to find the Newbies looking for support?
There's 2 for you there are many more, you can find them everywhere, blogs and conversations are good places to look! ~Terrie~
One the home page it shows the most recent new accounts. I try to scan the blogs/discussions/questions that are posted by new folks and reach out to them. I think the past week we have slacked off from that - and we need to get back to business! Let me know if I can help Puff!
puffthemagicdragon, on the bottom right of the home page, there is a thread for newest members. But there's also a great space for seeing who needs help in "unanswered questions."
In the top menu, click conversations. Recent questions are on the top right under the menu banner. At the bottom of list is a link to see all unanswered questions.
Don't want no bunny in my coffee. Will you have midnight snacks?
You bet. How about something light - just kidding. The chef whipped up her EX specialty just for you Dale - s'more-days-alive-for-me. In a jar. Enjoy. Ni'tall@.
Ni'tall. Since it didn't get a talked about today, I'll post another EX Café in the morning. Any thoughts?
I just posted a conversation saying yes - GO FOR IT! The Meeting Place
Thanks! I think it might kill me as I have diabetes. :-)
