    I have tried hundreds of times to quit and the only thing that has worked so far is this forum. I check it every day. I also try to nope pledge everyday. The nope pledge might be symbolic but it is a ritual that I find very useful. Rituals are not fantasy and forming new habits to replace smoking is key. I feel like rituals, habits, pledges all are part of "process", the process of not smoking.

    I think sgt.barney might just be saying a pledge is not enough to stop someone from smoking. I'm pretty sure if you went back through every pledge thread from when this forum started you would find a lot of people who still relapsed. Everyone who gets married takes a pledge to be with that person forever but look at how many end up in divorce. I'm certainly not saying the pledge is useless because it clearly helps a lot of people. The truth is though that despite what tools we use none of them can stop us smoking. The only thing that stops us smoking is us. My humble opinion - don't let pledges, NRT, forums or anything else take any credit. The one thing actually keeping a quit is YOU.

    ...but thought I would take a chance. I tried to bump one of his threads that was brought from QSMB and posted here, but was unable to locate them. I was reminded on Facebook today by a close friend of it being 5 years December 28 since the passing of jwg. I don't know how many remember his inspiring and funny well written posts. If you do, you would know what a special person he was. He was not only special to the members that read them, but even more special as a personal friend to some of us that kept in closer contact with him up until the very end. I just thought I would bring this up in case anyone that was touched by his writings would like to remember him once again. For me, it seems like only yesterday he was diagnosed with cancer at such a young age and the day he passed is still fresh in my mind. I will always miss him.

    Sgt. Barney, I gather from the fecal matter present in your posts that you have nothing but contempt for verbalized commitments. I did quit and I did, on occasion, pledge. It can help us conceptualize what we want (or don't want) and help to renew our commitment by making it a daily, verbalized, focus of attention. By making the pledge in public we magnify the commitment as we incur social expectations and well wishes ...or disappointment. A pledge is just another tool in our arsenal. I confess that I am morbidly curious how you might value the concept of prayer in terms of its usefulness in defeating addiction as, while very similar, a prayer is an externalized plea wherein a pledge tends to be more of a internalized affirmation.

    Welcome aboard Jack. Congratulations on quitting. I like the sound of that. You are not going to let cigarettes rob you of one more second of freedom. Commit to the process and enjoy the ride.

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.
