  1. Hello everyone. I just want to thank you all and announce that Anita(my wife) and I are 50 days Nicotine-FREE!! She quit cold turkey and I have about one month of patches. Last time Anita didn't commit to quitting and I went on the journey alone. This time we both quit and for good! Wish us luck as we go forward. Thanks. I'll pop in every once in a while to keep you all posted.

  2. Yesterday I got a bed frame delivered and decided to put it together. It's one of those frames where you don't need a box spring just a mattress on top. Well it took me two hours to finally get it right. Something a 10 year old could probably have done in half an hour. But when I finally finished and sat down I realized that the whole time I worked on that frame I never thought of a cigarette. That for me was a first. First time without the constant thought of cigarettes felt so good. So I got out of my pajamas today and decided to find things to do to focus on something other than smoking. Staying busy does help.

  6. One thing that has helped me is singing the No No song by ringo starr. Maybe you remember it, it goes: No no no no, I don't smoke it no more I'm tired of waking up on the floor No thank you please it only makes me sneeze And then it makes it hard to find the door. Now I've added a little fun into my quit. Try it you might like it!

  7. Staying busy AND productive does help. Not only does it distract us from the craving but we begin to feel better about ourselves. I'm glad you are doing well!

  11. "Two puppies!" I love the idea! I've been thinking about it, too. Sofia had an expensive year with surgery, but for my 3-year anniversary...there just might be another puppy in Sofia's and my future! The puppy in this photo (in the chair, purple cover) is Sophia, aged almost 8 years old. The tiny dog my son is holding in the palm of his hand in my ... what do you call it, an avatar photo? is Marius, who passed away four years ago, today, at age 13, of heart failure.

  12. I remember when you first joined and were unsure that you could do it. Then Mrs. Sal said she would join you. Like they say, many hands make light work, two heads are better than one, true love always wins. I am so happy for the both of you!

  25. Sometimes the train makes unscheduled stops and then you get to ride along time without interruption. Check the maps for your destination to get on the right platform. You will get there then.

  26. What they said. It does get easier but it won't so long as we cave to the crave. Have patience with yourself. Know and trust that it will pass. I think we can trust @jillar and @Doreensfree on that score. I am experiencing much more freedom these days so I can safely represent that. But I don't know (yet) what it feels like to be fully out of the woods. I am very vigilant. Spent about an hour on here just looking at relapse stories. Not sure why but I am really grateful for those who posted. Keeps me honest. Thank you everyone-hope your day(s) are going well!

  36. @Sal, must ask your geographic area, I always seem to catch you in the wee hours for me about 3:00AM here. I have insomnia and don't sleep well and am always up late.

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.
