Hi Aggie

Quote From: agathe1949

Been trying to post a message but I keep loosing it. When I click "edit" the message dissapears. So here goes for the last time........

Hi Ann;
No, not to crazy about this "new"site either. It should be called "confusing site". Yes it would have been so easy for anyone to have posted, letting us all know that the message board was coming down for a while. Little inconsiderate things like this make life a little harder for an addict. During all this time (trying to stay smoke free and not being able to post), I wondered how all my friends were doing and who exactlythe message board was really for....usor the Dr. Phil Show.Complicated and confusing!!
That having been said, I hope that everyone else will be able to find the new site.Welcome to the new comers. Good luck to all those on the verge of tryingto quit for the first time or again. Hugs to everyone from up north.
Aggie

Thank you so much for sending the link and letting me know that it was back up. I had been checking in but to no avail.

 

Glad to hear you are still smoke free!!!!

 

Lots of Love

Hi Tracy

Quote From: tray00

Thought I would clarify, I quit for 3 weeks, and if it wasn't for hubby I would still be. BUT I WISH!!! LOL

I am so confused with this new look. I don't know if I am missing messages....of what!!!!

Remember when someone said there was another site we could go to for quitting smoking and a few of us went to it, well the reason I didn't like it was because it was like this. I like the idea that we can change stuff but otherwise, this is really confussing!

Glad you are hear!!!! I have missed everyone sooooo much.

 

Look forward to catching up with you and everyone.

 

Lots of Love

Hi Leasa

Quote From: leasap23

I'm so aggravated at this new site. MAN! I don't like it at all! Congrats to Mario....big dawg going on 7 months!! :O)That's great man,....keep doing ya thing. So, let me make sure I'm right... is tray00 Tracey? I am pretty sure, but it said she has been quit for 3 weeks!!! Not that I doubt it, it was just the last time I posted she was struggling so I wanted to congradulate you for 3 weeks! Anyways, I got on to read from you guys and got frustrated again over how confusing and crappy this new site is. I wonder if it would do any good for us all to send an email and tell them? Probably not!

Glad you are hear too !!!!!

 

Hang in there....we will get used to this site!!!

 

 

Lots of Love

Hi HoJo

Quote From: hojo465

I quit July 10th 2004.. my one year anniversary was 2 weeks ago.... now how do I get my wife to quit? ..or rather.... what can I do to make her want to quit? I know I spent a year smoking and not enjoying it, just being addicted before I got to a place where quitting was "easy" I was ready. She tells me she still "enjoys smoking" is there anything I can do?

Congrats on the year!!!!

 

I think you know the answer to is there anything you can do to help your wife quit!!!! A smoker will not quit until they are good and ready. Perhaps you can suggest that she visit the website whyquit.com it is very helpful for getting your head around what smoking does to you!!!!

 

Welcome to the site...we love newcomers!!! Although I guess we are all newcomers now!!!

 

Stay Strong

Hi Tracey,

 

I was looking around on the site and was able to go into the archives and see our old messages...however I do not know how I did it...maybe on the home page there is a link to the archives!?!

well here we go again

Well everyone....I know you are sick of hearing about this from me....but I just smoked my last one. 10 minutes ago. So here goes....I am in it for the long haul.

 

Everyone...I know this board is frustrating but our friendship is worth a little bit of a pain in the a**. Please keep posting....we will get used to the board.

 

I just have to vent....I went to Wal-mart tonight to get stuff for our trip....I had to purchase a swimsuit for the waterpark and to go swimming at my sister in-law's house. Well they charged me twice for it....so when I got home I called them to tell them....they told me to bring all my bags back so they could look at them....well I said you are crazy....I have just unpacked them and if you think I am taking my 2 small children back in the car so I can prove that you guys overcharged me you are nuts. I spent $150 there....then the manager on duty tells me to come in tomorrow and he will see what he can do....so I said what do you mean see what you can do....I expect to get my money back!!!!then he said I said I'll give you your $20 back...I said no you said ..... then he hangs up on me. So I call back and he tells me the phone fell.....what are the chances of a phone falling and hanging up on someone? I hate Wal-mart....the people who work at the one near my house are always sooooo ignorant to customers. btw my Mom works at that wal-mart (oops) I am soooo agitated from my shopping trip I could just about scream.

 

On top of all that.....did I say I bought a bathing suit?   Yikes!!!! I really have to tone my body.

 

Lots of Love

 

Shelly
