KTC CHALLENGE

Want to get some additional accountability going? Want to meet some new quitters? Tired of a BORING quit group with nothing but roll call posts?

Here's a thought... use the TAG function. TAG someone, in your quit group (or any other thread here on the forums) that you've NEVER tagged before. Start a convo. Ask how their quit is going.

THIS place is about COMMUNITY. Some of my best friends in the world are people that I've met HERE... whether I've ever met them in person or not. Guys like @cbird65 and @bronc. Guys like @Samrs and @Big Brother Jack

You know how we've become such good friends? We talk. We've walked through the FIRES of quitting together and NOW our relationship has evolved into something MUCH bigger... but it all started cause we're addicts.

So... @Krreed8889 how you doing today? CONGRATS on 5 days of FREEDOM! That's a MASSIVE accomplishment and I'm damn proud to be quit with you today!

Chewie

@Kauffy !!! Congrats on that 1st Floor !!! You know a great way to celebrate ?? Come meet up with 40 or so of your Quit Brothers and Sisters at the Great Pennsylvania Quittogether Oct 1st - 3rd !  https://ktcforum.org/index.php?topic=17093.msg8720557#new

I'm not really introducing anything important. Well, unless you think food is important. I do. I love eating good stuff, and I've started a weight loss plan that's really working. I've cut 10 pounds and many inches in 14 days. If you want to know more, text or PM me.

Enough about the loss part, though. I do get a cheat meal once a week, and this week I'm thinking breakfast for supper! We're talking a serving bowl of cheese grits, scrambled eggs, ground sausage, and bacon, hash browns, biscuits, and muffins (for the kids) on the side. My dessert will be a biscuit filled like as damn jelly doughnut with good ol' sugar cane syrup.
I won't insult this meal by having anything green. Damn, Friday night, get here!
We call this BFD (Breakfast for Dinner). Not to be confused with BFL (Breakfast for Lunch). Don't forget the pancakes.

Thefranks5 and Dbrown83 got together recently in Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania. Thefranks5 had this to say: “Thefranks5 (Doug, 499 days quit) and Dbrown83 (Dave, 281 days quit) meeting up in Mifflinburg, Pa to celebrate our quits. Dave stopped on his way thru to celebrate my 500 day mark and in 219 days we will be in Carrolton, Ohio to celebrate his 500 day mark. Also Dave passed his KTC to me for further coin adventures.”

How do we get events on the calendar?  I'm pretty sure one of my quit brothers, @Tjschu will hit 6 years quit on August 28th but I don't see it on the calendar.
You are correct, Stranger. It looks as though the August '21 calendar is a work in progress.

I'm working on it.  August will be all updated before August 1 hits.  Promise
I was about to plead with GS to work on it with me tonight.  Thanks Chris!
Do you have to add everything each month and each year?
@bubblehed668 yes... there appears to be no way to 'repeat' events as far as I can see.

Really appreciate the efforts!  I didn't know how it worked.   8)

If you want my digits, just ask and they will be yours, but I expect yours in return.

Accountability is a statement of personal promise, both to yourself and to the people around you, to deliver specific defined results.
Brian Dive

Do not be complacent about your achievements and not to strive for continual improvement when you get to the top. As soon as you let success go to your head, you sink into following familiar patterns and play it safe. In other words, you risk losing your edge.
Roy T. Bennett

You need anything, ask.  You feel strong, help.  This quit is for you but we got your back.

If anyone is interested in Teaza Energy pouches, I use them daily and they're great. No nicotine, no tobacco. Just putting this out there for anyone who's interested.

Re: Jalapeno Poppers

@bubblehed668 what's the deal with these poppers? https://www.killthecan.org/bubblehed668-grilling-up-some-freedom/

I always do my poppers with cream cheese/tabasco/cheddar cheese stuffing and then wrap them in bacon before smoking a few hours. I can't tell what's under those sausages or what type of sausages those are.

Anyone else got a go-to recipe for jalapeno poppers?

That is a small white onion, cream cheese & turbinado sugar blended in a food processor and piped into the peppers. The sausage is a cheddar smokie laid on top then wrapped in bacon.

Somewhere in the deep dark recesses of KTC there was an area for recipes and it was in there called ABT's (Atomic Buffalo Turds). I can send it to you if you'd like, let me know.
