    Welcome aboard Ankush. Yes you can quit without a lot of support from family and friends. My family was kind of there the first week then I was basically on my own and I found this site, it provides most of the support you will ever need. Quitting is something you have to do for yourself not others so your strength comes from inside of you -- it is nice to have support from families and friends and you will receive some and people will be happy for you but in the end it is all about you and how you support yourself. Take the leap we will be here to support you as much as we can!!!!

    Welcome Ankush Everything is possible if you want to achieve it badly enough. Quitting smoking is no different and after all, you are quitting for YOU - not family and friends so much although it will benefit those people as well. There's no question having support is a great tool as you journey through your quit and that's what this place is for. To give other quitters support from people who know exactly what you are going through. Also, a place like this has a lot of very good information about this addiction and educating yourself about this addiction is probably the most important thing to have when quitting. Understand how your addiction works against you - it is NOT your friend. Hope you decide to stick around and let us help you with your quit. I gather you are planning on quitting April 7th based on the quit date you show? Why not quit sooner? Make a plan to quit and just do it. Procrastination is not a good thing. You run the risk of talking yourself out of quitting as the date approaches. Just make a commitment and dive in! There's never a perfect time to quit so just do it so you can be smoke free as soon as possible.

    With me the brain fog lasted I would say a couple of weeks and was still there a little for a week or so after that. I have heard people say it could be that your blood-sugar level is lower than when you smoked and that drinking fruit juice can help boost your leves. Not sure if that actually works or not. General crankiness and having a short fuse was probably the longest lasting symptom for me. That lasted off and on for a good 6 months I would say. Now, that wasn't constant or all the time but it did show itself from time to time. I think that was just me being impatient with the whole adjusting to being a non-smoker process. That symptom can vary hugely based on what your personality is to begin with I think. Many say "embrace the suck"and "focus on the positives" which is very true in reality but not everyone is able to do that. It does help though to step back from time to time, take a few deep breaths and think about the big picture - your end goal of having a healthier life and one free from being a slave to your addiction. Those are pretty big prizes so it''s no wonder there's some ugliness involved. Keep going and congrats one your 1st week! There's the worst one done and in the bin!

    Welcome Ankush, yes it's entirely possible. A lot of us here had no or very little outside support and have successfully quit smoking. You have a train full of quitters here who know what we go through when quitting and are ready and willing to offer our support. So don't hesitate to reach out whenever you need it

    Hi DizzyD, When I quit cold turkey several years ago, I thought the first month was pretty difficult. After that, things started to slowly get better. After one month, I still had temper tantrums and mental meltdowns once in a while, but the general everyday grumpiness was gone. It took me a while to learn how to deal with my emotions as a non-smoker. Things could improve quicker for you, we're all unique. Hang in there! Regarding brain fog, I didn't have that problem. I actually felt like the fog lifted when I quit. Mona

    Hello dizzyd, by your post I think you've still got your sense of humor, at least some of it Everything you're experiencing is normal at your stage of quit but the good news is that it's all temporary. As far as the brain fog, I found eating sweets helped with that. For me it lasted almost a month I'd say. My grumpiness lasted a bit longer and I think it was honestly around the six month mark that I started feeling better. It's important to remember that we are all so different in our quits so time lines for me won't necessarily be the same for you. I also quit more because I had to and not because I wanted to so that makes a huge difference in how your quit goes too. I think you're doing awesome, congratulations on being done with hell week. That's the hardest week of all!

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.
