19 May ~ >1000 cigarettes not smoked



Hello Fabulous Quit Train People,


Have been quite busy with navigating guests in my home who do not share beliefs around covid concerns.  Glad to have (sort of, not really...) found a way to be okay with sharing close space and being with the people I hold deeply dear. 

More urgent smokey thoughts in the last few days than I have experienced in awhile.  Just acknowledging the thought, announcing "I don't smoke", and moving on to the next activity.  Still surprised when I spend any time thinking about it...that I am a nonsmoker.

Still wondering...am I solid enough to change my patterns when the worst storms hit?  

Deeply enjoying gardening and learning to play pinochle.  Made the BEST lemon cookies ever last week.  Have been visiting the fledging owls (2) daily for more than a week. So beautiful.  Grateful for my health and the health of those I love.  Grateful to have resources and abundance of interesting and fulfilling opportunities.   Grateful that at this juncture I do not spend much brain power or time on smoking.


Hoping you are finding your way joyfully on the train. Reach out, post and share - struggling or easy street. People here will support your quit. You got this. 

I got this!  38 year smoker....2 months plus smoke free!

YES.  You are plenty solid.  NOPE your way through.

It's nice when you get to the point where you feel more positive than negative.  Hope it keeps getting better and better for you!  🙂  


p.s.  Congratulations on 1000 cigarettes not smoked!!

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.
