Q Is For Quit

God save the queen. ~ The Sex Pistols
I love that song. I also love Queen Elizabeth. I have a photo of her on my office wall... no joke.
Let's quit that though to talk about something else.
Quitting.
We all do it. Somehow, someway.
I quit Brownies, Navy League and Karate.
I quit high school at 17, (pregnant of course).
Not all my quits were bad things though.... some were even better for my health.
I quit smoking almost 6 and a half years ago.
I quit taking cocaine, ecstasy, crystal meth, ketamine, heroin and many other drugs almost 14 and a half years ago.
I've quit numerous other things as well, but the gist is we're all quitters. It's just how long before we quit is the question.

What is something you have quit?

  4. I did a "quitting" post, also... but mine is quitting blogging so much! I'm not getting enough exercise, and being too sedentary! This past LONG winter did not help that at all. I've gained about 7 or 8 pounds... So, I'm taking a blogging break... Maybe not absolutely quitting, but definitely taking a break...

  8. My dog is called "Queen" in Spanish (Reina). How original I know, we didn't name her.

    I "retired" from skiing. I love semantics.

    I quit brownies too! They say kicked out, I say quit :)

    Glad that your quitting means you'll be around with us for a long time yet.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
