  2. Eventually, you'll wake up one day and realize you haven't thought about a cigarette for a week (or more). You'll smell it and be ashamed that you ever put that junk in your lungs. When you come across a situation where you see someone smoking like that, take a super deep breath (deeper than you ever could when you smoked) and know that you made the right choice. Maybe use that opportunity to brag (or even preach a little bit) to the guy about quitting. I also used to wonder if I'd ever stop thinking about them. Now, it's such a distant memory that I can hardly believe

  4. This is all that matters. I was at a backyard BBQ during the long weekend, I saw a couple of friend in a group of men at 1 corner of the yard so I went over and joined them. One guy pulled out a pack of cig, and the thought immediately crossed my mind. He saw me looking at the pack so he offered me one but I immediately replied "No thanks, I'm good". I noticed how some people tried to finish their dinner quickly so they can smoke, and I felt sorry for them because that was me not too long ago, all my activities used to revolve around the next cigarette, pathetic!

  10. I'm with a human friend and a dog friend in Vicksburg, Mississippi watching the 'S' storm. Hopefully, won't have to change my address or my name. Thank you all for your thoughts.

  11. Leaving your dirty socks on the floor is a nasty habit. Not cleaning the shaving scum out of the sink is a nasty habit. Smoking is a lethal addiction. You need to take this more seriously, Linda. You need to decide enough is enough. You need to decide to stop smoking and COMMIT to never smoking again. You're no more addicted than anyone else, Linda. I smoked for 30 years and was addicted as anyone and I was able to quit. You can too, but only if you're serious about it. Quit now. Quit forever. This isn't some stupid game. This is your LIFE, Linda.

  13. I've been reading scary statistics about teen vaping lately, such as approximately 25% of middleschoolers in the US are vaping. Wow. If the anti-smoking campaign has reduced US adult smoking down to approx. 14%, from 40ish % in the 1950s, but teen vaping is now skyrocketing, what does this tell us about nicotine, and the anti-smoking campaign the first world has been engaged in all these decades? Does it mean we're spreading the wrong message by saying Smoking kills? Should it be Nicotine kills? Nicotine is the enemy? You can be happy without nicotine? No nicotine need

  14. I think they've already done that (better, early education) but not only that, today's general environment that kids grow up in is totally different to what it was when I was a kid. As you said yourself, parents smoked and I know when I was young, even my Dr. smoked right in front of us! "They" could have told me the very worst of everything that smoking could do to me (if in fact they knew it back then) and it still wouldn't have made me stop. Why? I was addicted and young - invincible! Plus, everyone I actually knew and respected smoked around me night and day. Those are the people I took my

  16. Every. Single. Thing. I loved the quitting process, learning about my addiction, how to recover from it, how to over come it...how to live again. I finally love me! My life completely changed; my husband too... quitting will always be the best thing I've ever done.

  17. Being at an event or place and realizing that no one is smoking, and I am not either, and feeling wonderful for not being the stinky one who is wrecking it for everyone else.

  26. You're coming up to 7 months quit Kate. so you still have some strong remembrance of smoking in certain situations. Unexpectedly a seeminly strong urge to "have one" pops into your head. It's completely normal and happens to us all. That's what the 1 year pledge is for - to make sure you get past all those unplanned situations where your brain goes immediately to smoking, even though you may be surprised that it does this far into your quit. Remember .... every situation like this that you face and end up dismissing is another WIN for you One more notch in your quit belt Kate. Soon, the

  27. Yesterday when I read this post. I couldn't think of one thing I liked about being smokefree. I was irritable, and just generally in a pissy mood. Today however. I like that I don't have to worry about how I smell, if my teeth and fingers are turning yellow. I don't know if you guys noticed, but I had like this strange yellowing that was staining my fingers. It took me a minute of just scrubbing it to get it off, but I didn't like that so I am liking that I am no longer yellow and stained with nicotine. I am also glad that I don't have worry about burning my house down because I fell asleep wi

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.
