  1. I think that maybe in your situation, talking about it is what is keeping you from smoking.
  2. Hang in there! A crave isn't a command. It will pass - promise!
  3. Welcome aboard, Hollyleaf! I smoked for 28 years as well before I quit. The recovery timetable helped me focus and get through any cravings.
  4. If so, check out the following videos covered in 4 topics. Short video discusses key topic areas that enhance an individuals ability to quit and stay off of smoking.

  8. Congrats, Deb! Welcome to our support group. So glad that you decided to quit and there was no better time than 3 days ago. Stay active and post as often as you like. We're open 24/7 and somebody is always on the board if you need anything.
  9. JH63, You are approaching this quit from a place of weakness instead of from a place of authority. You can without a single fail, quit smoking and stay quit for the rest of your life.

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.
