  1. Thank you so much, Doreen! The years sure do fly by.
  2. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, in the center, there is a drop down box where you can choose the theme. The default is black but you can also choose a blue theme.
  3. What time was your last cigarette? If I remember, you were at 20/day and $6.50 per pack?
  4. If you're having any issues creating, adding to your signature, or any other issues, please note them here so we can try and figure this out. Thanks!
  5. You're almost at 1 month quit! That's awesome! This will soon pass and you'll be thankful that you didn't smoke.
  6. I have no idea but please post this on the main board and start your own thread about it. This is an S.O.S. tread from another member.
  7. Welcome, Mellymark! First things first. The only way you're going to smoke is to put one of those nasty sticks in your mouth and set it on fire. Make yourself a promise that you WILL NOT smoke ever again. Not for any reason or for no reason at all. You deserve to be a non-smoker. There are more former smokers than there are smokers so there is nothing unique to your quit that will cause you to keep smoking. The more time that you put in between smoking your last cigarette, the easier it gets - and the healthier you get! Today is Sunday, the day you quit smoking. Tomorrow morning is Monday. The first Monday morning after having quit smoking I can't quit because I'm addicted
  8. Nana20, I have moments like this and I haven't even thought about lighting up a cigarette in years. Your advice - it sounds like that is the advice that you're giving yourself right now...a little tough love to yourself. This has nothing to do with smoking or not smoking and everything to do with being human and just having a mood.
  9. Hi Lilley, I can merge both accounts into one instead of deleting the old one. Your last quit is part of your new one.
  10. Public health experts have welcomed the move by the central government to ban the use of tobacco products and spitting in public places to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. States like Assam, Chandigarh, Delhi, Jharkhand, Haryana, Gujarat, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh among others are also penalising violators for spitting tobacco in public places.

  11. Thanks for posting and congrats on 41 days! This happens to a lot of people but in these times, a quick consult with a doctor is highly advisable. That said, the fact deep breathing makes you feel better is a good sign. Deep breathing techniques probably wouldn't do much if it was the virus. When you're anxious, this is just what happens. Remember, smoking DOES NOT CALM YOU DOWN. Smoking will not help and in fact, make it worse. Nicotine is a very powerful stimulant which raises your blood pressure and triggers adrenaline to start coursing through your body.
  12. Note to mention: Joel was doing quit smoking clinics while Allen Carr was still smoking.

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.
