  1. 5. impromptu back scratcher.
  2. Thanks Jillar, My only regret is I didn't quit sooner.
  3. I thought the video was well done and, at less then 9 minutes, was worth the watching.
  4. Here in the U.S. we have a sizable minority that belief vaccines are [insert conspiracy theory here], and won't have anything to do with them. Personally, I hold that getting vaccinated is a civic duty and a benchmark of average intelligence. Seems a lot of folks won't believe there is an pandemic unless they have to step over bodies in the street. My thanks to all those who took the time to get immunized.
  5. I was Pfizer'd. Second dose back on the 26th had me feeling...weird. No overt symptoms, but not quite right either. Kinda like the The UK Roundabout Appreciation Society or the Dill Pickle club. Wife got Maderna'd. She got her first dose not too long ago. While waiting in the observation area we had somebody pass out. That sparked some excitement. Only thing my better half experienced was a painful arm which lingered into the next day.
  6. A bit of unsolicited advice that sometimes helped in my situation. Walking. Get out and stretch the legs. Get the blood pumping and focus on movement and breathing. Watch for traffic and immerse into the here and now. After fifteen minutes increase the pace. When you tire, slow it down a notch, and circle on back home. Take in the sights, and sounds. It's spring, things are greening, flowers blooming, traffic flowing, rain falling, and you're a part of it all. Your breathing is rhythmic and natural.

    Shall We Rhyme?

    Hopin' you're well.
  8. Had the exact same thing happen to me. Dreams, followed by waking and wondering what I'd done. Very confusing. It takes a long time for the subconscious to get on board with what we consciously decide to do. Perhaps these dreams are the last vestiges of our identities as smokers? For me, they started several months after quitting and slowly became less frequent; not that they happened all that often.
  9. I think I still have my whiskey jar half full of water and packed with cigarette buts somewhere in my garage. There were a few times I would unscrew the lid and take a big whiff to remind me of what I was missing. I...haven't felt the need of such reminders in quite a while.
  10. The problem with quitting is that its a passive process. The only thing we do, is, refrain. Its not an activity so much as a decision. When we first start this journey of abstinence, our brain and body ask us to smoke, to receive, the nicotine we've come to expect. So the decision not to smoke has to be made again and again. Maybe a hundred or more times a day during the first weeks. That's why it so important to stay engaged in activities, preferably social activities with non-smokers. If your doing something that occupies your attention, t
  11. A week into the new year and the capital building in the U.S. was sacked. I may need an even larger bowl of popcorn for 2021.

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.
