is it better to buy stuff for fixation, ? or just quit straight out? mean like fake chew such as Smokey mountain or bacoff or candy like gum , peppermints, etc. maybe stick candy in a tin?
That part is personal preference. KTC has no issue with members using fake substitutes as long as they contain ZERO nicotine. Lots of folks use Smokey Mountain, Baccoff, Teaza, Jake's and others.

Candies and seeds are completely fine as well. Find what works for you and use it as a tool to help you through the initial stage of your quit.

Never been able to get into the podcast scene. The only one I ever listened to was on a road trip last year called Dr. Death. Intriguing to say the least.

Question of the Day:

What sort of New Year's Eve plans do you have this year? Same / different than years past?

Low key with just my wife and me.  Grill some steaks, smoke some lobster tail.  And try and flush the $#@! Hole that was 2020.. yet celebrate staying quit!
No plans here. Get the kiddos in bed by 8pm and then pop some champagne and find something not horrible to watch on HBO max with the goal to make it awake til midnight.

Question of the Day:

Did you have a 'socially distanced' Christmas celebration?

Pretty much...some family we didn't see at all, the usual family members we saw briefly.
We just did the immediate family, the 4 of us at home

Spent some time opening gifts in the garage with my in-laws. Had a garage dinner with my folks / brother's family.
Our small gathering was due to the extended family being under the spell of covid concerns. We were up for anything and everything
ABQ= Always Be Quitting

My Intro
My HOF Speech
How long have I been quit?


I brew the beer I drink, what's your superpower?
