About this blog

Day 1 - At this very minute I am 2 hours and 15 minutes shy of my first 24 hours without a cigarette.  I feel different this time.  I am more dedicated to quitting this time.  I will see how I feel tomorrow but so far so good.

Day 3

As I begin the third day of not smoking I am faced with the hardest decision I will make during this journey.  My wife is still smoking.  So do I say it's okay if she wants to smoke in the house since it is so bitterly cold outside and it is her house too.  Or do I just say nothing.  I know she had to make the commitment to quit herself but I also know it would be so easy for me to buy a pack to "support her" which is just an excuse to go back.  I know I am not going to give up what I have accomplished so far.  I do not want to go through withdrawals again.  My headache is finally going away.  I did not get irritated yesterday.  I am feeling even stronger today.  So even though I love my wife with all my heart, I am not going to say anything.  If she asks I will even tell her I prefer she didn't because it is still a struggle for me.  I got this!!!!   I don't know if it is support I get here or what but I am almost excited this time and confident I can make this quit stick!

Day 2

Day 2 of my quit.  Last night was a bit rough.  I could feel myself getting irritated with stupid stuff.  Today's focus is going to be not letting things irritate me as much.  A week ago I was not easily irritated so I want to go back to that person.  I feel good about myself.  I know this is what I want to do.  I have to remind myself that I am not suffering any kind of loss by not smoking.  And I love what I read on someone's blog today "stop the craving early by telling yourself it is not an option and move on to something else."  That is what will carry me through this first week.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
