  1. Post your reward for today. What did you do for yourself for making one more day? what’s the importance? First quitting is hard work. Real fudged at time’s especially when under six months. Not whole time so don’t be discouraged, just a ball buster here and there and here again. so why post? To remember to treat yourself. Sorry your non smoking friends aren’t going to reward you. It’s life, they may or may not really care. Or feel you should just do it and that’s the end of it. it’s not. It’s work and you get paid for completing it. Pay yourself. Big days- bi

  2. Hello beautiful souls. As some of you may know I had a 12 year quit and relapsed a few months ago. Ive got bipolar2 and I was in a manic state. If you know anything about this disorder in the very high state you are not "you". You behave recklessly and you have a devil may care attitude. It's not fun at all. I had never experienced this before. From my first puff it didn't take long to be back to a packet a day. I couldn't believe this was happening. I was a staunch anti smoking activist! After three stop starts and feeling beyond frustrated I joined the Quit Train,

  3. Hello. My name is Kat. I turned 70 in April, and decided I would like to see 80, so it was time to quit for good. I have smoked most of my adult life, but did quit for 6 years, back in 2009. Also, in 2009, I experienced a severe enough cardiac event, that I had 3 stents placed in my heart. Coincidentally, that was 6 months AFTER I quit smoking. In 2015, I experienced a bad break up with a boyfriend ( sounds silly saying that out loud) and picked up cigarettes again. I am in a good place in life. I have a great guy, great kids, and 12 beautiful grandchildren. I recently had a comprehensive ca

  8. Thanks everyone, you are a very kind bunch! My reality is that I'm mostly alone, but when I log on here I feel connected and it's a good feeling. It's amazing when you think about it, that we are all connected over beating a horrible addiction, but thank goodness you are all here as it would be too tough doing this alone...I know because I have tried unsuccessfully. I haven't been seriously tested yet, as I was when I last quit; I have a woman friend who I was telling that I felt quite low in mood since I quit smoking...so she says "Here, would you like a couple of cigarettes?" (stupid questio

  12. That is why we come here everyday Steven. Here we are surrounded by others who get what we're going through at any given point in our quits. I really wish you would have come here BEFORE you smoked so that we could have helped you think more clearly and hopefully save your quit. I hope you will do that in the future...

  16. I think you do give a shit. By venting you have extended an arm. Let this place pull you out of the dark pit. Keep your quit. Keep venting.

  17. Beginning your quit ? Be prepared to be uncomfortable a while . There will mostly likely be days ya wanna scream or tears will flow like a river that never runs dry . You may want to take a hammer and pound nails into a piece of wood for every time you got angry at what someone said or did . Stock up on them you are going to need a lot of nails lol . Spouses beware ! Friends beware ! In the beginning it's normal to not want to accept the things that might be the truth and it's also common to gaurd our feelings . A cigarette protected us so we believed . We stuffed in many of our f

  22. Today I turned 66 and it is the first smoke free birthday I have had for more than 40 years! I feel ashamed writing that last part of the sentence, but I am happy to be smoke free today. I hope this is the first of many smoke free birthdays. I'm off to celebrate! Cheers, Robbie

  28. You smoke because you're addicted to nicotine. You're addicted to nicotine because you smoke. That's it. Smoking is a means of getting your nicotine fix, nothing more. Smoking does not ease anxiety beyond temporarily relieving withdrawal symptoms. Smoking does not facilitate jobs and tasks. Smoking does not make you a better writer. Smoking does not lead to joy and fulfillment. A cigarette is not a one-way ticket to Big Rock Candy Mountain. We all had to unpack the lies we told ourselves about smoking and confront the truth of why we actually smoked. The success

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.
