  1. You were always supportive, and a huge inspiration mate :-)
  2. You're very welcome You're very welcome
  3. 6 years ago I smoked my last ever cigarette. Had I have continued I'd have smoked a further 87,600 cigarettes! If my chain smoking hadn't cut short my life. The turnaround in my life has been tremendous since quitting. I also quit drinking and got myself a BlackBelt in Karate amongst other personal triumphs :-) When you set your mind to it, there's nothing you can't achieve. Your life, your choices, your successes and consequences.
  4. Thanks TAC :-) yes I got my Black Belt in Karate on 12th December. Just in time for my 5 year quit anniversary :-)
  5. 5 Years ago I put out my last cigarette and went to bed, I didn’t realize that it was my last one, I only knew that the next morning, when I woke up and decided that I wasn’t doing it anymore.

  7. Every new chapter is a step further away from your former smoking life. Hope tomorrow is better :-)
  8. over the last few weeks I've had some interesting experiences, which threw up some observations about triggers. I was on a photography job, and took my camping stove, it was not stressful, and there were no emotions attached, other than a little reminiscing that the last time I used the stove was while touring europe, and that my coffee stops were also smoking stops... and a trigger hit me, it annoyed me more than anything, I recognised the feeling and ignored it. a few days ago I went to the English Open Karate Championships, it was a very exciting but also nervous, and at times fri
  9. I can see everyone's view, it's a personal observation rather than a rule, and it's based on many things. Personally I do not miss smoking. Maybe it's because I group all of the side effects as a whole package, or maybe it's because I know that My enjoyment was only the relief of my withdrawals. And although my logic suggests that we all had the same physiological reaction to smoking and withdrawals, I can't say what it was for anyone else, as we all attach different emotional connections to cigarettes. What I'm sure we all agree with is that we all know that we can not go back to
  10. make it a living choice, not a dying one.

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.
