  1. For me, I look back from time to time to remind myself how pathetic of an addict I was, how it actually took a lot of enjoyment out of my life. It really helps me to get over those cravings easily when I reflect back. This nasty addiction had controlled my life for almost 40 years. Anywhere I went I had to worry about where/when I can smoke, it took a lot of enjoyment out of all those family vacations, celebrations, events, parties, even business trips, etc. Not only that, my wife and kids hate smoking, I'm sure they were disappointed every time I sneaked away for a smoke, sadl

  2. I agree with JohnQ. It took so much time that I could have been enjoying and living life. It got to the point where it was much easier to stay at home than having to sneak out and find a place to smoke. It also took my confidence. I was so ashamed that it was more important to me than life. It makes me ill thinking of how much money I wasted on the habit. The good news is that you can move past this. Quitting has given me my power back. I am one badass lady making up for lost time!

  5. Some background: Lots of smokers in my family...two of my close cousins recently gone from cancer/heart issues (both long-time smokers), another one (long-time smoker) lost his larynx (throat cancer) and now breathes through a stoma in throat - luckily, he was able to learn to speak by swallowing air but his voice is very different now!) Both my parents were long-time smokers and eventually each lost a lung to smoking. Dad made it to 61 after his surgery but his quality of life after losing the lung was not too good for his last 7 years due to complications from

  6. Sorry about your dad dying so young! Mine did too but probably not from cigarettes. It took my mom via COPD. It's too bad we don't understand the true cost of smoking when we're young.

  7. Giving in mentally to a craving, loosing your focus happens Steven but the reason the SOS is so important is that it means you have to type out what you are experiencing then wait just a little while until you start getting replies. It's that delay time that could save your quit! It's not necessarily what any of us might say to you but more that the craving will have subsided at least a little and you have time to really think about what you are contemplating doing by lighting up again. If you haven't already, write an SOS message to yourself in advance. There's a thread in on the

  16. Welcome aboard, @Oona First off, you are doing a truly great thing by quitting smoking. I cannot give you advice on Chantix as I did not quit that way but there are a number of people here on this site who did quit successfully with Chantix. I am sure they can give you much better insight about it. Regardless, you are doing a great thing in quitting, regardless of method. This is definitely a safe place to vent. Feel free to post about anything you are struggling with. Post all you want. We have all gone through what you are experiencing and yes, quittin

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.
