The Promise is Real. Wow!





Quit Date: 02/04/2015


Posted July 1, 2015 


I don't know if month 5 is like going around a big bend towards magical month 6, but the promise that "it gets better" is not just empty words. I still have anxiety, but not as much. There are actually some days when I don't think about smoking at all. When I go through rough patches of anxiety or a crummy day I remind myself, "Everything isn't always about quitting smoking."


This is a really exciting journey. It has been hard, but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth the effort.


This post is for newbies, in the early days and weeks of quitting. It can be hard. But it gets easier.


Sometimes it's hard to get through the hours.


Then suddenly a whole day, or days go by in utter freedom.


HANG ON. The promise is real. It DOES GET BETTER

Gosh does this give me hope and the strength to carry on.  Let's me see that things don't necessarily get good in a few weeks but it takes months of hard work.  Must remember patience is my friend.

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.
