  3. First time i tried to quit cigarettes i thought it was like quitting some bigger harmful drug . I thought about cigarettes like heroin . Because it was that hard to quit for me in the beginning . The cravings and firing inside my brain for cigarettes was so strong My head was more like trying to control my heroin addiction , lol I had to stop it and somehow i did stop it . What a relief these days Take your addiction a little bit more seriously Thanks

  4. JH63, You are approaching this quit from a place of weakness instead of from a place of authority. You can without a single fail, quit smoking and stay quit for the rest of your life. Instead of saying "I have decide to start my New Year with a new quit attempt", how about "I've made a decision to quit smoking and I pledge to never, ever take another puff of nicotine." Be bold. Speak with intent. You are now accountable to all of us here at the support group. As long as you think that nicotine has a death grip on you - you're admitting defeat. Although it's true that ni

  8. You're beating this addiction too Jeff everyday you stay smoke free! At three days quit all the nicotine will pretty much be out of your system and for me it got harder because my body really wanted its fix. So be prepared in case that happens(not that it will). Stick close, post an SOS if needed, stock up on hard candies to suck on. I was stuck on soft peppermint puffs my whole first year but hey I never smoked and ate at the same time so keeping my mouth full of those was well worth it You're doing great!!!!!!

  9. Day two is done! It was much worse than day one. Praying for a Better day three. After the fog finally lifted, I spent the rest of the day nervous and jittery. I know from past quits that I don't normally have many days like this, but I'm bound to have some. I can't wipe out 50 years of smoking in a day, a month, or even a year. @Doreensfree Thanks for your replies! They are encouraging and appreciated! I see that you have been quit for a long time. Congratulations on being able to beat this addiction!

  13. Hi everyone! I'm looking forward to a very successful NOPE commitment. I'm currently on day 3 after 40+years of smoking. I have COPD, asthma, bronchitis and am just done taking meds so I can breathe enough to smoke. How ridiculous is that? But I've been doing it for years. Hubby still smokes but not in the house. Today is the hardest day so far. The coughing is annoying as hell and starting to give me a headache. I can and will do this. One day at a time. Congrats to all the success stories on here!

  23. Thank you. I am really glad to have found this forum. have been watching Joel’s videos. Learning a lot. it’s funny because I have spent years actively avoiding learning about nicotine addiction and quitting smoking information. last year a family member was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer and then he quit smoking. I have wanted to quit for a year but could never put down the cigarette. Now day 2 and it’s not easy but it isn’t as hard as I feared.

  27. hello all! since I quit over eight years ago, a lot has happened in my life. I’ve gotten divorced, I’ve endured my son‘s not talking to me for a few years which now we have re-connected, I bought a new house, I dealt with some health issues which are now resolved hopefully for good. I’ve had some issues dealing with relationships and ups and downs in life, financial struggles....and then Covid hit and since then my life has really been turned upside down and tested my strength as many of us have. But in all of this ....not one puff ever!! no matter what that is all.

  28. It was a summer afternoon. I strolled over to bleachers that were set up on the sand of the seaside. A man sat in about row three toward one side. I climbed up to an upper row and sat down. He sat below me, on my left, peacefully smoking a cigarette and gazing out over the water. After a few moments, I realized I was smoking a cigarette, or at least I assumed I was, because I was holding one that was smoked half way down. I was confused. How could I smoke when I was so close to the lido deck and one year quit? The thought crossed my mind that maybe I'd just forget that I'd ever smo

  34. Welcome aboard our train full of quitters deb, and congrats on day 3. The nicotine is just about out of your system now so it goes to figure it wants more. Just hang in there though because it will get much better before you know it. I also have asthma and COPD and quit after 35 years and I tell you that I credit all the support I received from fellow quitters as the reason I'm quit four years later Stick close, check out all our various forums and reach out if you need some support or just want to vent. We have members from all over the world so there's usually someone here around

  35. Please, Take Your LIVES Seriously ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In 'real' life and here on the QTrain, I see people being careless about their lives and their quit, like they have all the time in the world ! 'I'll quit next week, maybe tomorrow, I'll quit again sometime'. Are they not understanding how dangerous smoking is ? It's a friggin' Slow Suicide ! The ramifications are Horrible. This is no joke. Ask our beautiful friend, Doreen ! I, too, used to be casual about quitting, casual about smoking. so, it is no surprise to see others in Denial. I wasn't listening to any kind

  40. Smoking dreams can be scary and I had quite a few long after my quit. It is good that you saw this as a warning though. Things do get better with time, as I'm sure you have seen, but as nicotine addicts, we must always remain vigilant. Congrats on doing so well with your quit. As Jill said, I'm looking forward to your first year quit mark too..

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.
