    Hello everyone, I decided 4 days ago to take the idea of quitting smoking seriously and quit cold turkey. It only took a chest infection due to covid 19 to finally push me over the edge. I had a couple tough cravings today but I worked through them. I was searching the internet for some kind of support system when I came across this site. I decided to join and get the help I believe that I will need to continue strongly.

    G'day @Mac#23 and welcome. Biggest tip I have to offer any newbie is to just take it one day at a time...only focus on a single day...being 4 days in you know you can do 24 hours, you have already done it 3 times. Oh and don't worry about what others are doing with their quit, every quit us different so just do you.

    Welcome to the Quit Train Tina. Quitting smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for yourself. That's how it's done. It is a marathon not a sprint. Just run the mile you're in and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

    Welcome guttie and congratulations on deciding to quit this deadly addiction. I have a ton of respect for those who can quit with a smoker in the house. But our members who have successful quits under those conditions have shown us all that when you're ready to quit nothing will stop you. Even that I found that being part of a community with others who knew what I was going through at any given time was instrumental to my quit and I stayed glued to the board as much as possible reading, posting, celebrating milestones and socializing. It bonded me with other members and made me not want to let them down. I also learned a ton about this addiction and found reassurance during craves that I could get through it. So stick close, we'll give you all the support and camaraderie you want/need

    “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” ― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa

    hello Jordan7, we were big on exporting sulpher from al aquaba,. i just assumed you are from that part courtesy your username. true - either i flipped or either i blew up my fuse. whatever - i am happy. if i was asked to write down the last confirmed crave it is turning distant a distant memory . i felt the last 'real' crave some 4 months before i quit smoking, lol. i was helping out wifey in the kitchen (she is the CEO of our home center inc - president of the board of directors, in fact she is the only director and the only dictator on the board, lol). i accidentally cut my finger bad whilst chopping onions . i will never forget that gloriously shameful torture i endured willingly and how the pathetic crave was so cruel in its depravity. that day i saw how a crave could humiliate somebody who was in love despite the obvious shortcomings of his lover. lol. did i feel a true crave after the quit - no which was the toughest day of my quit? - day 1 and 2 i think. - as my mind needed to be convinced i could quit. i am reminded on an old advertisement for an suv - it helped my quit. if you look back on your life, what would you remember?. ......what would you remember ?? .., re-claim your life !!!!... (stunning New Zealand landscapes) - pure SOUL BLEEDER !!

    Dried tobacco leaves rolled up in paper with a filter on the end...nothing precious about that. The perception of what the cigarette is that we held as smokers compared to the reality of what the cigarette actually is was terribly skewed by addiction and the lies we agreed to accept as gospel truth. Don't give a cigarette any more credit than it deserves. The cigarette has as much or as little power as you give it.
