How am I going to get through this. When is the day gonna come that I don't obsess over a cigarette? Am I destined to be miserable?  To never feel happy? I know people say that I will be happy again but I don't feel that way. I have been quit for 2 1/2 months now. I still find it hard to concentrate. It's not going to happen for me. My joy is gone. Cigarettes have ruined my life. I pray for true happiness.  I wish I could be an inspiration instead of this pathetic woe is me person. I know I should be grateful. I should be free. But I'm still a slave. Why? Is there something wrong with me? Is my brain wired wrong?if all this isn't enough, I beat myself up for having a negative attitude.  I'm still committed. NOPE. Prayers for better days.

Solo, what you are experiencing is totally normal but I promise you it does get so much better. Just hang in there, at 2 1/2 months quit you're almost past the hardest months of quitting.

I'm going to bump a couple of my favorite posts, one called No Man's Land and one called Mental Balloons. Hopefully it'll help you feel better :)

Sorry , i forget to put a quote




It will all come back once you stay away from smoking


Life is a lot more things you have to do everyday . All these problems exist because you made cigarette a habit .


Life is a bit miserable for most of us most of the times .Boring , Depressing etc .But when you avoid smoking you can fight all these slowly slowly without ruining your health .

Awww Solo we need to be patient. 8 weeks is barely enough time for a broken leg to heal so a lifelong smoking habit is definitely not going to be sunny and rosy this quickly. 


I come here for inspiration BUT I also come here to know that others find this as hard as me.  I let the golden oldies be the inspirations so that I can get on with being the "woe is me" you talk about. 


You're probably not depressed - you're just pissed off with how hard this actually is. Your rainbow will come just like all those before you.

Wow Lily, great analogy with the broken leg! Impatience has been my issue with past quits and the depression really takes it's toll. I just need to remember to get comfortable with being uncomfortable for a short time (can't remember who on this forum said this).

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.
