  4. YES! ^^This!^^ I was watching tv the other night, and I swear I saw at least 5 Juul commercials in the space of 2 hours. Why is it ok to advertise these but not cigarettes? Seems hypocritical to me. NOT that I want to see cigarettes advertised. I just don't see one as better than the other. Merely my opinion, of course.

  6. I know what you mean, Lilly. My husband used to ask why I didn't try vaping instead of smoking cigarettes. (He can't stand the smell of cigarettes.) I told him that no other form of nicotine had the same effect. I tried vaping. I didn't see the appeal. Cigarette smoking is a complex addiction. Of course there is the addictive substance, nicotine, to deal with. But then there is the act of smoking--by that I mean the physical act--that is appealing to smokers. There is the habit of smoking--all of the places, events, etc. that trigger the desire for a smoke. And there are the cigarettes themselves--the taste, the brand, the buzz. It's all evil, I tell you!

  13. I got refunded for the month of Onstar but not for the hands free minutes. They showed I had 30 minutes that were set to expire in May. Apparently my minutes were erased by the accident?! But, since you have to choose your battles that is one I didn't want to fight over....

  15. @notsmokinjo I think its just best to do what works best for a given individual. Some may need NRT, some may not. I guess it doesn't matter in the end, as long as we don't smoke. @Lilly Yes, beating the addiction is what matters eventually.

  21. One of the most important books I ever read. Exposed the myths surrounding smoking and made the lies we told ourselves as smokers impossible to defend anymore.

  24. I hear you @WeegieWoman and I appreciate the honest input. My daughter is the oldest and she bosses the boys about. They just do whatever they are told even as grown men lol. We all have a good relationship but the three of them have a great relationship. The flip side is I've put everyone but me first my whole life. Every choice I've ever made I have always thought about how my decisions will affect other people. While all my children, family and friends are living their dreams I've always made sure I'm the thoughtful wife (not now obviously) and mother. I'm nearer 60 than I am 50 and I want to live some of my own dreams now. I don't want to leave this world not having done anything for me. My kids are each the glue that holds their own families together now

  25. I love this Tammie. It’s actually enlightening listening to our minds trying to tell us something we always deadened it with cigs buts it’s actually something to be heard. Every day is a learning day

  26. Excellent post Jo as usual. I always, always ask my trigger ( I actually have a mental conversation with it :p) what does it need? My attention on a memory? My celebration for something good? My anger on something wrong? Anxiety at work? Post the answer my trigger gives, I'm like, hmm and where would that be after the 7 minutes of puffing like a defunct coal engine? Nowhere so how about instead I give you a nice walk, or a cool drink (It's hotter than a pig's backside here right now) and by that time, my trigger has left the building.

  27. I walked away from my husband if I thought an argument was brewing, as that was always a green light to go and smoke. I refused to let myself get worked up to the point I knew I would be checking my purse to see if i had enough for a pack! Great post Jo..Thank you.

  28. Many people have anxiety about quitting and should know, often 'the thinking' about quitting and the anticipation of quitting causes unnecessary stress. Quitting is far easier than one would think. Nicotine addiction is all about anxiety. Quitting is all about freedom.

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.
