Where do you all click the 'Post a Message ' block

good morning everyone..I'm trying to figure out where to click the button..before I've been clicking at the  bottom , this time I clicked at the top..they don't seem to register where I  post..oh well, I had an awful awful granddaughter for some reason got freaked out over a green light in our kitchen..her other grandmother is a sci fi nut and CAss was afraid aliens were after her..I didn't think I'd ever get her calm down, then the dogs, o'vey..anyway..I'll be back later after I drop this little fellow off at the shelter..they were all at it at  7:30 this am. and my husband is in a pissy mood from not enough sleep..I'll need to talk later, love to all..Ann

checking in

I've finally come off the walls tonight..what a rough day..these are the days I just survive and even the cigs don't help..I did go to an AlAnon meeting, but I just faked it..i was so upset over the little dog..I would have kept him if we could accomodate three dogs, but we've tried having three many times and it just doesn't work..Cass is all calmed down from her freak out last night..i just let her stay in her gown all day..after her shower she just put it back on and chilled..she could stay on the computer for hours..Rick has chilled out and I've spent some time in prayer and meditation for the doggie..I'm a sucker for an abandoned animal..Shelly, I hope you have a great vacation, you deserve it..we're leaving Monday morning ourselves..we have this old model RV, it ain't much to look at , but it runs and it has cold air conditioning, that's all I need..we will be gone until Friday..I'm looking forward to getting out of our routine and just hanging out with's so great to have the board back, even with all it's to all, I'll check in tomorrow..xoxoxo Ann

Happy Friday

hey everyone.I'm so glad it's husband officially starts his vacation tonight..we are so excited to be able to 'get away from it all"..even though an RV is a lot of work, I don't mind cause it will be out of my granddaughter left today and as much as I love her it was time for me to have some time to start getting us ready..I swear it takes two days.  I went to the used book store today and bought a couple of good mystery novels, then got my haircut..then to the Pet Vet store to get my girls some Frontline..fleas and ticks are awful here this time of year..then I went to Target to pick up my current 'obsession' Starbucks Doubleshot of Expressor and Creme..they are so good chilled..I'm hooked on them.  I picked up a couple of sales items in the clothing for the trip and found this hot purse that I had seen at the first of the summer, it's that chartruese green and has the chains and charms on had been nearly $20 and I found it marked down to $4 and some change..couldn't the time I bought that and some toiletries and things we needed I'd dropped $70..I'll tell ya...$ just goes, but I'm grateful to have some..that's the main thing I'm looking forward to with quitting again, cause our $$ has been tight of course with both of us smoking. Have I mentioned that I hate myself for starting again?  I went out to the grocery store tonight to pick up our regular food for the trip and lost track of time.. my phone was turned off and when my husband came home he freaked, cause I'd told him I was just running down to the corner to buy smokes,thenI changed my mind and bought groceries..rarely does he scold me, but he told me to never do that again...::sigh::  I used to dream of him worrying about me and wondering where I was like I used to do him, now that he gets concered, I get ticked..ya know, ya just can't ever please a woman like me, LOL.  Anyway, I just wanted to chat and say hey to everyone..I am getting excited about he and I quittin together, it was so hard to do it by myself,but at least I did do it and he said I was an inspiration..again,did I say I hate myself for starting again? Anyway, enough babbling out of to all and welcome to the newcomer..hope you find the help and friendship I've been privileged to enjoy here..xoxox Ann

I will quit smoking in 2 days, 8 hours, 16 minutes and 53 seconds.

Welcome Deb

Quote From: deb4268

Hi everyone!  I'm new to the boards.  I figured this was probably one of the best places to talk to people who are either trying or who have quit smoking.  I have been smoking for 20 years.  I started when I was about 17.  I have tried to quit a couple of times, but it never seems to work.  I now find that I have to quit now, and it's harder than ever.  It's for my own well-being, but I don't understand why I can't just quit.  It's like I'm fighting myself here.  I guess I just need to talk to people who understand where I am coming from. 

I'm so glad you joined us..I too started smoking when I was 17, I was off and on for years, then started smoking steadily at 28 or so..smoked until I was 57..when I quit last February I really thought I had it made..even though the first three weeks WERE HORRIBLE, after that, I really started liking it, my self esteem was higher, but then I started gaining weight, arguing with hubby and on the 4th month anniversary I went to the 7/11 and bought a's been a month and a half now and I'm slowly starting to hate myself again..not to mention the disappointment in my Granddaughter's eyes when she saw me smoking again..I had tried to slip around and hide it..but then I didn't want to be lying to her..I know what you mean about not being able to stop, but it is an addiction and addictions don't  care much about common sense..they just thrive off of our weakness..hang in there..we're here for you..Ann
