Transferable Quit Skills





Posted July 3, 2019 


I think that as you gain confidence in your successful quit

you will find that the skills used in quitting can be applied to other aspects in your life.


For example, the notion of H.A.L.T.

are you Hungry, Angry (which can be switched to emotional), Lonesome, Tired.


To this day, I turn to this technique for a variety of reasons and situations.

While it may not solve the underlying issue, it certainly alleviates compounding any distress by addressing these issues 

and I am better able to solve the problem if I am, at least, fed and well rested.


Another example of using a quitting skill is deep breathing !

an excellent technique to calm myself and think more clearly.

A conscious flow of Oxygen is a panacea, the handiest of magic elixirs !


Just knowing that we have the ability to change,

and acknowledging  the proof that we Have Changed, (we quit smoking!)

gives us encouragement to change other things in our life.


I know many of us have changed other aspects in our lives with 'quit smoking' skills.

The self-confidence acquired in quitting, especially, encouraged me in any endeavor.


What skills have you learned in quitting smoking

and how have you applied them to your fabulous nicotine free life ?

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.
