Hi Mark! First visitor today! I made you something special. It's all ready for you at your table on the patio - hope it's how you like it.
Thanks, Mark. I appreciate that. So many visitors already this morning! Yeah! - I'll be at the EXpresso machine if anyone wants me.
I love it too.
Isn't this nice?
I hope everybody has a great day.
Morning, Mike. Any news on your jaw? How are you doing? Great news about getting vacation time. Thanks for the update this morning, found here:
Good morning to all
Today I will spread the word Quititude makes your Quit Journey smoother!
Avoiding dwelling on craves, loss of Nicotine, and withdrawal symptoms makes everything more doable.
We create our own Quit Journey 100%!
Want an easy quit? You get what you anticipate!
Let's find our Quittude and lock it in!
You're talking about Develop Quititude right?
Quititude. Is this the word of the day! A word for for us to reflect on. I like that idea.
Morning:) I thought I should get here early this morning since yesterday this place got packed:) A nice place to start the day!
Good Morning all! I survived posting the Feb Pledge and the Thurs Train on our lovely new platform with only a mistake or 2. Shew!
I would love to have a black coffee, some cheese danish and good conversation with some former smokers! I heard this was the spot!
anyone care to join me?
Have a great day every buddy! ~Terrie~
How did you know that I like my coffee black? Thanks TerrieQuit !

What a delightful idea!! I love morning coffee and chatting with friends. I have to take my Jake to school and then head on in to work but wanted to stop in and say hi! Have a great day, all
Good morning Sheri, I wish you a wonderful stressfree day Dancingthrulife_6.4.13
Hi most wonderful Marilyn!! Hope your day is as lovely as you are, my friend!! No stress here today Its a beautiful day in Florida.
Morning! Good to see you!
Just coffee for me this morning, thank you, and another chair I can lift my legs on it; those darn cramps just won't let go. Maybe I'll drop a muscle relaxant in my coffee, do you think I can, if I still have the valid script at the pharmacy and I don't abuse it??? And can we please talk about something else than "oh, when we used to smoke..."
hahaha! lose them?????????
Good morning, Daniela!
You mean, like the weather? It's 62 now and it's going to be a beautiful day here today.
I don't remember posting that picture of me online . . .
I hope you feel much better as the day goes on Daniela-3-11-2016 ,hummmm that poor purty Cat got into your meds I think! Hee, hee, keep your feet up and isn't life Grand without a Cigarette in hand?
you're welcome, Marilyn.H.July.14.14. I think we might have talked about that before??????? haha! Have a great day!
Good morning all-
Save a seat for me please. I will have an espresso this morning or two....
Have an amazing day my friends!
Good morning everyone - I am a little late getting here. Did I miss anything good?
Need lots of coffee today!
Now that looks like my type of cup for coffee susan-m ,plus I drink my coffee black yummy !
Good morning everyone!
I am in serious need of a "friendly" cup'o'joe....Rumor has it, this is the place to be....Not to be thought of as a freeloader, I thought that I would bring some meat to serve up for lunch today...get ready to feel a "happy tummy" ummm ummmm good. And that marks the spot!
Now we are ready to eat.
Pops with 254 days of freedom....woo hoo!!!!
Seriously Pops, a rib roast for lunch! That's what I am talking about:) That will go well on a warm baguette!
You're too good to us, Pops. I think some people are going to be needing these.
Yummy looking roast Pops
Hopefully the bone will stay in place to heal. So I am to rest and relax until next Wednesday. Then I will see the oral surgeon again. I never took a weeks vacation in Winter before. Thanks for all the prayers. They are working.
Will be keeping those prayers coming Mike, I am just sickened that this happened to you. You are the epitome of PEACE and kindness!
Good morning! Time for cup of coffee and some steel cut oatmeal with blueberries and bananas and then head out to the auto repair shop. When I turn the blinkers on in the truck all the lights flash. Hoping they will find the problem fast but they said it could take all day to track it down. I will take a book, my phone & charger and wear my running shoes so I will have something to do. They have dial a bus that could take me into town and maybe I could pick me up a soy mocha. As of the 12th I will no longer drink mochas as I can't seem to talk them into using unsweetened soy or hemp milk. I can't tolerate the sugar free chocolate anyway so it will be goodbye to mochas they are just to addicting and I buy one every time I take my son to one of his appointments which is frequently. The 12th is the perfect day to quit as it is the anniversary of my health journey of eating healthfully and quit smoking and it has been a beautiful growing experience. I look forward to my continued growth along this journey. All the difficulties I have faced during this journey has been well worth it. Enjoy your day!
I hope everything goes well with your car and your breakfast sounds really healthy and good tjanddj ,you are a very smart lady and I need to follow your lead on better eating and joining you on your health journey, thinking good thoughts for you and your son and yay for all of us on our choice to live a Smoke Free Life!
Hi tjanddj. I thought I'd drop off your order while I stop by your table to say "Hi." Hope it gives you all the energy you need for this busy day of yours. Happy healthy journey!
Thank you c2q delicious. Never had steel cut oatmeal until just a few months ago I should have been eating this all my life I will never go back to those flatten pieces of oatmeal again. Oh so good! I will stop by for a mocha later I think I will have time today.
Thank you Marilyn.H.July.14.14. to a healthy and smoke free life!
OK guys, something to think about, I know I do:
It's absolutely beautiful we meet here every day and get to say hello to each other, but how about all the newbies???
Do we advertise this is a place they are also welcome to stop by, say hello, and share their experiences as new quitters?
I know every time I check the site I want to come here and "see" my friends, and don't always have the time to got into "conversations" and answer the many questions, comments posted there?
I will try to better balance the 2! After all, most of us meeting here, have more or less passed the difficult period in our quits, and the main reason we are coming back is to help the community at large, right?
I am still working full time, and only have limited time to contribute here, and would feel better knowing some of us are splitting our time on the site between our "meeting places" and helping the newbies, I know I will try harder to be under conversations longer, and just saying my hellos here at this comfy place !!!
Have a wonderful day my friends!
Good morning, Jim. freeneasy. Your special order is ready, One Double Espresso Mucho Grande Vanilla Spice Latte with a Double Shot of whipped cream
OK, Pops , if you are bringing the barbecue, I figured I better rustle up some breakfast in case there are any other vegetarians out there. Meanwhile, can I order a Mocha with almond milk, please and thank you? I love your new cafe, c2q ! I hope you have lots of space and energy, since you are going to be very busy!
You bet! I have an almond mocha frappuccino right here for you. Order's up!
Good Morning Everyone! The Arkansas groundhog did not see his shadow - dreary and rainy today. So I guess that means springtime just around the corner for us!
Same with us in Indiana - I'll take it! Have a great smoke-free day!
Let's not forget those celebrating important milestones on the train today!
Freedom Train 02/02/2017
I really like posting link here. It's like a community bulletin board. I posted a link to the train earlier, too, but I think we should just randomly continue posting it, to keep it fresh. Same for the pledge.
I'll go for that! The Daily Pledge February 2017 and another cup of black coffee please, to go. I am gonna go newbie searching! ~Terrie~
Hello from the Truth Initiative office.
I hope that's hot chocolate and not just dirty coffee Mark. lol
Good afternoon, all. I am trying to get caught up on things that NEED to get done and I am not moving too well today. It is a gorgeous and sunny day and I am going to find a way to get out there somehow...I need a ladder so I can re-organize my closet which has shelves I cannot reach. I would just LOVE one of those designer coffees, already had my black coffee this morning so that almond mocha frappuccino with extra whipped cream sounds amazing and just might get me moving a little faster.
Working on developing my quititude today... I start a 3 hour mini quit in 1 1/2 hours... My quit date is the 11th. Can't wait!
Remember we are here...never heard of a 3 hour mini quit but, then again, whenever I traveled anywhere, I always had mini quits in airports, like it or not. Life is SO MUCH BETTER without nicotine controlling me.
I had longer mini-quits: flew to India from Phoenix, through LA, London, to destination - Bangalore (East Coast India), and that was an over 24 hours "mini-quit". It took me a while and several light headed states to get back to my "normal, smoking, state". It is always feasible, no one died from cravings, but many people did from smoking. My advice: pick your quit date, and go for it. With the right education, the right mind set, with all the support here, you can do it, much like we all did it!
Congratulations on your decision Tyme!
really late getting here, but just wanted to say hello, cold snowy day ughhhh....have a great day everyone
I see Sassy! shashort She's "liking" things on the site. Shout out to Sharon!!!! Hi girl!
WELCOME TO THE NEW SITE!!!
Here I am
Thanks so much for the link.
I am late but Hi Giula. Hehe no sneaking in here lol Love and hugs to you
Hey Sassy! Great to see you here. Hope to see more as the days go by and you get better. ♥
You have been sorely missed. We are all very much rooting for you. Hoping things are mending as well as one could ask for all things considered. Your tenacious attitude is infectuous. Great to see you blogging, & such.
Stopping by for a soy mocha no whipped cream please. Blinkers are working correctly now! Corrosion was the problem. They were able to clean it up for me. Still have a couple of others things to fix but they will have to wait for now. Only there for 3 hours so not to bad. Able to chit chat with the men for a while about fishing and stuff. I miss having those conversations with my husband.
I see Giulia has seen Sassy! Hello Sharon! shashort
I am hungry after seeing this food and the coffee too. One of the Ukrainian ladies here just made pot of coffee. 3 bags in it. She said she likes it strong!!! Whoa strong indeed!
Ni'tall. Thanks for a great day at the café. It's an all night diner at heart, so have no fear, the doors are always open at the EX Café.
Enjoyed all the pictures and posts! Day 4 is almost done. Couldn't have done it without you all!! Thanks so much!
I would like a coffee right now. Have a happy smoke free day!
Good Morning, every buddy! I'll take an extra strong black coffee as I am just getting my motor running this morning! How are you all doing this morning! ~Terrie~
Good mid-morning friends! Beautiful day here in Florida!
Had my morning joe early this morning, but I sure could go for one of those baked goods...need to cut back on goodies, as its bathing suit weather here.
Thanking God for His goodness this day.
How bout a cheese Danish? Hot and Fresh!
