    Can't stand it

    This will pass. You're doing all of the right things and that includes pushing through this. Outsmarting this addiction - apply what you know right now - this is where it counts!

    How long did it take?

    I don't remember how long I was irritable after I quit smoking but heck, I'm still irritable and it has nothing to do with nicotine. After I accepted that getting to the point where I no longer would think of smoking 24/7, I was going to have to put in "the time". Once I understood that the more time I put between my last cigarette, the less I would think of it. A lot of the cravings after a certain point are mental, but nonetheless are still cravings and IMO, just as powerful and if not more. However, they're very manageable because you have control over how you act or dwell on thoughts when they enter your mind. Trust me, the more time you put in, the less you think about, much less consider smoking. Remember this is going to take some time because for a long time, everything we did revolved around smoking. Everything.

    New Video: "Thank goodness it's only cigarette smoking"
  12. Yes absolutely. This is not an easy fix because we now have to use 3rd party chat apps. We've been looking into this for least 2 months now. That is the goal and one way or another, we'll get it how we want it.

    What would you do?

    This is the issue; straight up junkie thinking which rationalizes making unwise choices. Being rational isn't going to get through to her but what will is your silence. Set the example by your actions because they always speak louder than words and also show truth. Great job on making the right choice to not smoke!

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.
