  2. Hey Everyone, I'm an original 2018 quit team member of the EX-CIG-CUTIONERS It's been years since I've logged in to see how everyone is and I figured I'd write a quick message to say hi and to give an update. Well it's been 4 years, 4 months and 13 days and I've not had a single puff. When someone has asked me how to do it I've always said that you need a support system and to find this forum, for me it was the original QSMB but when that went down this place kept me through it. It sometimes is difficult to explain that this place works but I do know that at least one person managed to make the quit stick because of that advice so that is enough. It's funny that how we all know that 99% of smokes either wants or has thought of quitting, but when we explained this support system, most don't believe it, at least that is my experience. But what I want to say that if you're reading this and are new to this, know that this works. I remember when I started my quit, one of the reasons was that I had 2 year old daughter and someone here said to me that my baby girl would never know me as a smoker. Those words were enough to get me through several SOS situations, so if you're struggling, one advice that I can give is to find THAT! visualize yourself as your better self, a NON-SMOKER, and know that you can make it. Hope everyone is OK and if there are any 2018 ex-cig-cutioners still here, thanks for that first half of 2018, we made it.

  3. Thank you, everyone! It’s hard to believe a whole year has passed. I feel good, and continue to be motivated to improve my health and well being. The support of this group has been, and continues to be invaluable. I could not have attained this milestone without all my friends here. Kat

  4. I am still here, for some reason, hanging on, really struggling, really depressed. But as I said many times, not giving up, not going back, no other option. I AM A NON SMOKER, even if I hate it. It is just an addiction that wants me to give in but I will not, I am more than that!

  13. Heh. Howdy! I quit in 2018 also. January 5 actually. It’s great to hear the words come out of my mouth that I’m going on five years quit. It’s crazy. I never would’ve ever thunk it. This place was invaluable to me. I spent a lot of time here in the early days. These days about the only time I ever think about a cigarette as when I get on here LOL. But it’s OK. It always goes away. The urge, it always, goes away! For me, I wanted to quit on my terms. Not when the doctor told me that I need to quit with tubes running in and out of my chest. I still feel good today. Active and I work hard. My wife still smokes. I encourage her every day but she’s just not ready. I hope she makes it until the time she is ready. She borderline gets angry with me when I try to speak with her about it. She just changes the subject. I remember… Sounds like the addiction talking, right? It is. I don’t post much, actually I don’t visit as much as I used to. I suppose smoking is further in the back of my mind then I think. Good thing…

  14. Getting all of my ducks in a row to start my next project. I'm building a small greenhouse on Boo Acres. I already have more than enough cedar to frame up the house. Yesterday, I picked up a truckload of old windows from a friend of mine that flips houses. All the windows cost me was a case of Yuengling beer...a good deal. We're starting small and learning on the fly, but becoming increasingly food independent is more important now than ever.

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.
