  2. I no its not much to shout about but it is a huge achievement for me. 2 whole weeks without a vape I have managed to get up get dressed and go to work without being a massive grinch to everyone . I've been on annual leave for 7 days and have made sure i have just chilled out and relaxed if things haven't got done then they haven't got done .... I think I have cracked this I've had massive help from my nic gum and i no if I had tried to quit cold turkey I wouldn't have managed it . The support and help on this forum has been fantastic ... Now to get threw week 3

  3. Awesome job @Kerry! Those first hours, days, weeks, and even months are so crucial in building the solid foundation needed to maintain your quit for life. Time will start to fly by and before you know it a year will have passed. You are doing great! Remember to reward yourself!!!!

  5. Happy New Year Quit Train Gang! Just thought I'd post a quickie while I still can! I keep losing access to my account for months at a time for reasons I don't know of, which is why I don't come here often anymore LOL. Well Jan. 17 was year 3 cigarette and nicotine free for me. Yippee! And close to $5,000 saved to boot, woohoo! Congratulations to all you quitter-winners whose anniversaries I've seen roll by but I couldn't respond because my account was locked. Being active in the forum was so helpful for me in the first year of quitting. Now in year 3, I see how dedicated the regulars are in helping newbies go through their quits. Really a great group! Well, Happy 2023 and may it be an awesome one after the past 3 years of junk on junk. Thanks also for the condolences.

  6. Popping in to say hi and share I was headed into the grocery store today. There a guy standing by the doors with a unlit cigarette. He asked the guy ahead of me if he had a lighter. He did not, so I thought I would spare him asking me. When I got close to him I said sorry I too do not have a lighter. He said oh, I was not going to ask you I already knew you wouldn't. hehehe I cannot tell you how that made me smile....Happy New Year to all those riding train (I know I a bit late in wishing that here) in April it will be 2 years for me. I so grateful for finding this site and those on it. I so grateful to be a non-smoker. To those thinking of getting on the train...DO IT...life as a non-smoker is so much better. Do not hesitate...just do it...the quicker you do it...the quicker you come on out onto the other side of it all Hope everyone has a blessed day!

  15. So in 10 days I will be 2 years smoke free! I’m so proud of me. I still haven’t had a single craving since day one. I’m horrified at how I’m sure I used to smell. Secondhand smoke absolutely disgusts me. It was awful for a while because my office mate smoked like a chimney but she’s now almost a month smoke free now too! Definitely makes for a better day for me not having to smell her all day. Lol If you’re reading this and just starting your journey, you got this! Just keep reminding yourself why you’re quitting and stick to it! If you need a shoulder to cry on, or someone to vent to, reach out!

  19. Still here fighting the good fight with the help of my baby dogs. They smell like dogs not cigarettes. They keep me in line, if something happens to me who would spoil them rotten. It is the one skill I have, spoiling dogs.

  22. Go ahead Kerry and shout as loud as you want. You are doing great. Always believe in yourself and have faith. Just take it one day at a time. So go ahead and shout as loud as you want and maybe dance around as well.

  26. The lies of addiction. One of my brothers came by to fix a burst water pipe last week and as soon as he was finished he lit up a cigarette. I stood there and remembered lighting up every time I finished up some task to celebrate its completion and how satisfied I was with my work. That could still be me. That cigarette smelled so good. But I know without a doubt that I will not light up again. I can’t. I will die if I do because there is absolutely no other quit in me. You are strong. You stepped off the train, but hopped right back on owning up to your bad choice. I would still be down on the line somewhere. I do hope that you are feeling better today.

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.
