Being a Minnesotan, and since not every last bit of tobacco-settlement money got sucked up in the general fund when we ran out of state cash (oooh, about three rants there), I get to participate in QuitNet for free.
It's an online quitting support community, and my sweetie used it extensively when she quit.
There's a whole vocabulary - being a Minnesotan and over the age of 10, I have experienced the 12 Steps in some way and they have a vocabulary too...
Anyway - the reason for this discursion is the use of the phrase 'my quit.'
I don't know if it's intended to avoid the 'quitter' label, but the word 'quit' becomes like a noun. It's not Day 4 of my quitting process, it's Day 4 of my quit. "How's the quit going, dude?" "It's a good quit. Yours?" "Shaky, dude, shaky." "Keep the quit, brother, deep breathing and chew on some cinnamon sticks." "Thanks, dude, you helped me rescue my quit."
Although most of the people using quitnet are working class women in their 30s, so the whole surfer dude stuff is atypical.
Anyway, back to my quit. I get my bracelet today!
