If you can imagine that in your lungs like I am in mine this morning and all those with copd or lung related issues you will have no trouble saying nope , yet many times I did it anyway . Not no more . I don't do that anymore and grateful for it and even happier to pledge with my friends here .

  4. Well my mini vacation is over! Got back home today. Had a great time, lots of time on the water. Boating, swimming, fishing. Company of great friends. But I do have to admit I missed smoking!!!! I didn't but I really did struggle, felt like I left a friend at home. I really didn't think I would. We did some drinking, I limited that because I knew that would be a trigger. I did not think I would have the issue I did, but hopefully it will get easier It would have been real easy to give In and smoke. Being around smokers was not easy. My friends don't smoke , but there were other people on the beach that did. Can't avoid that forever. All and all had a good time!!

  10. 19 days sober. One month and twelve days since smoke relapse. Last week was challenging, for reasons I rather not mention here. It's not up to me to put it on display. It affects me bigtime, but its not primarely my sadness that matters most. S. and d2e8b8, thanks for being there. It helped. Crazy, scary sh*t. Also last week: the floods in europe are devastating. I don't understand how some people still think climate change isn't real! It's been a while since i took an alcohol break like this. What a difference. I think my energy levels are stabilizing somewhat, less of the up-and-down-going. Mornings are the best now. No more of that foggy sluggish feeling. I do miss a nice cold IPA now and then... yummm. But easy to resist and bye bye hangover.

  19. Clearing the smoke out of your lungs and the fog out of your brain, at the same time, will make you a new and improved MLMR. What’s next? For me, it will be getting back to my exercise routine, and perhaps stepping it up a level…….literally.

  20. Opah you have sighted in on your quit, focused, and pulled the trigger. You're a hunter- you know once you pull the trigger you can't take it back, you live with the conc3quences of your decision. You quit smoking. You already pulled that trigger. There is no going back. Get that through your head and it'll be much easier!! Time to skin that quit, salt it, stretch it out and pin it in place

  25. I was having a real down time with bipolar depression and so close to buying cigarettes for comfort, just looking for any comfort. You all helped me through it. I went online and searched for a forum for bipolar. I found a really good one. Such a relief. I have lost all of my friends, and even family has turned against me because of the yo-yo moods--they never know who I will be today. They fault me for "thinking negative," and tell me to "just think positive thoughts." The success I've found with this forum (and Doreen) encouraged me to keep looking for a group of like-minded people with whom to connect. This Quittrain support group has not only helped me quit smoking and stay quit, but think about other areas of my life where an online group might be helpful. Ripples across the water. Thank you all

  33. Thanks to all, I am doing fine. Quit is still going good. Don't leave the house much as I find it a temptation to smoke. Just want to do recognize what triggers and why, learning about myself. I do stay busy at home. Next new hobby will be crochet. Did not put in a garden this year due to hip replacement. That normally keeps me busy. I think of you Gus and hope the new job is going well! I do struggle Abby but don't we all, just having somewhere to vent is comforting and calming. I do love to walk but the older I get the more I can't take the heat. Thanks for the company and encouragement. K

  34. Quitting smoking was the resolution that I made. The process of quitting was a catalyst for change that happened organically. I quit smoking and drinking. I started working out and cleaned up the diet. I got really interested in neuroplasticity and the psychology of changing behaviors and thought patterns. 2016 was an interesting year in my life and it all started with me saying: "That's it! I have to quit smoking." If I could drink in moderation, I would still take a sip of the hard stuff from time-to-time. My problem is that inevitably after having a couple of drinks, my mindset always turned to: "if I feel better after two drinks just think how good I'll feel after twelve more!" That's when things got weird. It's nice now...waking up in the morning as opposed to just coming to.

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.
