    2017 Q4 Financial Update

    Dave, QSSN has been an integral part in helping me quit. I feel the donation I just submitted does not begin to pay for the positive impact this site has brought to my life. Thanks for everything you and the staff have done over the years. Hopefully others will step up and donate what they can.

Hard but brief craves yesterday. Interesting that I was able to look at them intellectually without really being affected too heavily. TechDude -268- I still get that feeling of something missing when I do certain things - it's only a brief thought and then POOF - it's gone. Supporters: Tiger - 623 - Yeah, it's a totally different ballgame now with the craves. They are muuuuch easier to deal with.

The quit calculator is cool. I shudder to consider what $$ the calculator would show for how much I spent on the cancer weed in 29 years. Ican - 265 - I quit today. New location new quit. TechDude -262- wow - $11.68 a can is crazy - I looked up the tax for MA, 210% of wholesale price. Supporters: mongrel - 305 - $3,660 saved for me! With tax, $11.68 a can! The money I save is not the biggest reason I quit, but boy does it reinforce my determination. NDT with April.

Getting over a cold that required the spitting of hacked up lung chunks. Spitting felt strange. I used to be quite an accomplished spitter - ants were not safe in my presence. TechDude -261- That's not a pretty sight but your options are limited. I don't think swallowing is an option. I remember walking around with a huge fatty in oblivious of what an idiot I looked like. I definitely don't miss those days. Supporters: Tiger - 616 - Summer colds SUUUUUUUCK!

Suspect.....dude.....you missed roll call on your 2nd Floor day! I guess that could mean that dip is so far away from your consciousness that your next milestone just came and went. Congratulations. Ican - 202 - NDT. Welcome to the 2nd Suspect! Great to see you back posting up! Cheers to TPT and hitting her straight in the wind pipe! TechDude - 199 - Congrats Ican and Suspect - thanks for leading the way. I'm headed to Des Moines tomorrow for the state baseball tournament so I'll get in early to post up on day 200. Supporters: mongrel - 242 - Yes, congrats to Suspect, even though he missed RC on his HoF 2nd Floor day. My take on posting is that by posting regularly, I can be there to support the quit brothers who might post that they're having a hard time. I wouldn't know if I didn't show. And as we are all finding out, Life after 100 Days isn't automatically all daisies and rainbows.

    April 2014 Reservoir Quit Dogs: LTMC, jbvikes, Suspect XX, Icandoit, Bearhater, TechDude, Tophook July 23, 2014 Quitters: Tophook - 190. Thanks guys. Went to a Cubs game last night. Triggers everywhere, but no problems. I'm a fan of the low carb method of weight loss Ican. The weight fell off and I never starved myself or counted calories. TechDude -191- Tophook - are you a Cubs fan? I would have thought you a Pirates or Phillies fan. As for the weight gain I know what you're going through Ican. I've gained about 15 lbs. in that last 191 days. It's better than using devil dirt but I need to get it under control or I will be signing up with a weight watchers support group too. Supporters: Tiger - 546 - For my weight loss, I really altered the quality of what I was eating at first. I eliminated sodas all together (which was a bitch!) then cut out fast food. The other biggee was eating breakfast from home and packing my lunch. Boom, weight lost. Add in some NDT, shit that's a meal fit for a king.
