  2. I do like the tempo of the washing machine version better. If you listen to Mel McDaniel's version at 1.5 playback speed it closely resembles the washing machine version. Makes it more of a hand-clapping, foot-stomping, hootenanny kind of song. And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

  5. Sarge went through a whole series of major life-style change at quit time near a decade ago because of health issues. Lost 64 pounds. Quit eatin' like shit - changed to a mostly plant-based grow-your-own diet. Started running full marathons. Quit a high stress job. Quit smoking. Started sleeping regularly instead of stayin' up all night ... All in an effort to get AllTheThings™ back to some semblance of Normal again. High Cholesterol - went away in the first year. Bad cholesterol down into range, Good cholesterol up into normal range. Pre-Diabetes - gone. Fasting Glucose ba

  7. Talked for a little while with a guy who started out as a professional acquaintance but has become a friend. He is a mechanic and shop owner. We send any company trucks that need repaired to him. He's a good mechanic and a great guy. He's also a smoker, a heavy smoker. Every time he would take a drag off of his cigarette, he would cough and clear his throat. Then he had a terrible coughing fit that went on for a while. He was out of breath. His face turned red. His eyes watered-up from coughing so hard. I have noticed a change in his demeanor lately. He seems

  8. What's this? We got a "Saturday" theme going here? And thanks to the internet, I'll never hear the song "Louisiana Saturday Night" without thinking of a washing machine that is out of balance...

  10. It's good to reflect sometime and not get complacent This last two years I've lost my two life long companions ...... I watched my friend beg for a cigerette hours before she slipped away ... Hoping your friend Boo...takes on board what you told him ...and at least has him thinking ...this could be him too..

  15. Similar story here. Although I did gain weight the first several months after quitting, my lung function improved so much that I began a fairly strenuous exercise routine. Also, changed to a healthy nutritional plan. Soon lost the pounds I'd packed on and more. Cholesterol dropped over 60 points without meds. All my other labs showed tremendous improvement too. I never did have high blood pressure, but every aspect of my health that was tanking prior to my quit improved to the "green" (acceptable) range. It's kinda like the hour hand on a clock. You can't see it moving while you'

  16. When my weight shot up to 225 lbs. my inny broke the plane and became a slight outty. But thanks to the fact that I had quit smoking, I was able to exercise and really change my entire lifestyle. Happy to report I've stabilized at 185 lbs. and I now have a full-on inny again. Even when I'm sitting down .

  17. Where's the option for "BOTH" ?!?? It ain't 50/50, neither. It ain't half this, half that. Full on *both*. Sarge has had an Umbilical Hernia (tear in the abdominals underneath the belly-button) since he was a toddler. He can switch from inny to outy on demand. It's a fun Party Skill and Conversation Starter ! EZPZ

  18. Great reminder, boo! When I encounter people huffing, puffing, coughing and such - I’m thankful to not be in that battle anymore. And now... w COVID and masks. The thought of re-inhaling stale smokers breath makes me gag. Glad to be free!!

  24. Your friend sounds like my sister with the coughing fits that turn her face beet red. I too don't think she'll ever quit but it doesn't stop me from mentioning quit train to her every chance I get in hopes that one day she'll give it a shot and see how doable quitting is.

  27. Hey Linda, don't be discouraged it may just be that high blood pressure runs in your family like mine. I didn't see any major decrease in my BP and I've been on blood pressure medicine since my late 30's! Never been overweight and am in fact underweight. But you know what? There's still so many other benefits to quitting that make it so worthwhile. Xoxo

  28. Not sure on the timing for lowering blood pressure Linda but I do know you're still in early days of your quit so keep at it. People tend to start getting wear of the constant battles with cravings and just always being on their toes 24/7 but trust me, it's worth the effort! It won't be long until things really start easing up and you'll get a little more breathing room. Do focus on benefits you are starting to see - that helps lift your spirits. Money saved, taste and smell improvements and I'm sure there's more. Remember the reasons you quit for. They're still important. Keep moving forward

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.
