For All Your Tobacco Needs





Quit Date: July 23, 2013


Posted June 2, 2017 

That was the sign on the shop in the middle of a non-descript strip mall.  My first thought was it is empty for me.  Then I started to think about the word need.   This need is not like air or water or food; this is the need of an addict.  Nicotine only creates the need for more nicotine.  Deny this need and the withdrawal cravings cannot kill the addict (though his brain may try to convince him otherwise).  The need is artificial and self-inflicted. 


I started to think that I should open up a shop right next store with a sign that said “For All Your Non-Smoking Wants”.  Grab a cart and come shopping with me.  Better Health, add that to the cart.  More Time with Your Friends and Loved Ones, add that.  Lower Chance of Heart and Lung Disease, throw that in.  Clean Smell as well.  How about some Freedom and a Sense of Changing Your Life for the Better – let’s have a big load of that.  Time to check out – and you get the thousands of dollars you would have wasted at the store next door.  That’s right, you get paid at the “Non-Smoking Wants” store.  Isn’t that a great place to shop?

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.
