    I'm not smoking for today
  2. 17 points
    G’day Never took a selfie before. Had a try tonight. Suppose I had this idea that I’d look great .....like some of those shots of my niece with the big eye shots. How do they do that? chucked most in the bin! Finally used the last one. Well... would be better with a full beard, but I’ll have to keep it short till the next OP. The Tam well why not... 6 generation Aussie Scott. That beard was ginger once.... Now it’s pretty much silver. The little wee one next door, little miss 4 is a little worried about the loss of the beard might have an impact on her presents at Christmas... Plus she’s off to New Zealand this year to be with extended family... ive promised Christmas will happen even in NZ. Just my luck someone going to tell her the truth... and she’s old enough to understand.... C

    C'mon, smile. You always look so serious. I used to hear those lines all the time, for over a decade. And there was a good reason. I kept my mouth closed like a vise (vice for you Brits). It all started when I was 39 and I made a routine trip to the dentist. He did that thing where he pushed a tool under my gums at each tooth and called out a number. 5, 7, 7, 9, 8, 5, 9, 8, etc. Apparently high numbers (on a scale of 1-10) were bad. "We're going to have to extract 4 teeth today and send you to a periodontist. You probably have some hereditary periodontal disease, but smoking for decades is likely the biggest contributor". WTF! I had used a Sonicare toothbrush ever since they first came out. At least twice a day. I flossed and used a Waterpik every evening. But those tools were not powerful enough weapons to combat the damage smoking was doing to my mouth. The sad thing is, I continued to smoke for another decade. And the problems grew worse. 4 bridges, 2 crowns, and receding gum lines that made my teeth look twice as long as normal. My solution was to never smile. ? Long story short, I had to have all my teeth removed last year. Had to choose between dentures ($10K out of pocket) or full implants ($47K out of pocket). I chose the later, and am happy with the aesthetic result, but it will never feel the same as my real teeth and I'll be paying off the implants for years. I know there are much more serious consequences to smoking out there. Cancer, heart disease, COPD, etc. But I just wanted to bring up one of the not so obvious damages that may occur as a result of long term smoking. Please throw this on your pile of concerns if you're young and considering quitting now. The good news is, I've never felt better since I quit smoking, and I now have good reason to smile about my life of freedom.

    Thought I'd check in to say hello and that for all you newbies, it does get easier - the first week is awful, the first few months are too! After about 8 or 9 months, I got a liberating feeling and now I no longer have cravings and rarely think about it. I do occasionally have dreams where I am smoking and then wake up and think - phew! On 18 April at 11.20am, I will be 2 years quit! Keep at it you lot! Claire x

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.
