  1. 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

  5. Nothing gold about Marlboro. You know what's gold? Freedom. Freedom from pains and diseases that are the eventual endpoint of a lifetime of smoking. I know it, you know it, and that's why we quit in the first place. Don't let the momentary cravings of an addiction undo all your efforts towards a healthy and longer future. You know what I like?

  10. Lost a relative to Covid yesterday. I knew her but we were not close. A distant Aunt. She suffered from congestive heart failure. She resided in an assisted living center and despite all the precautions and care the disease slipped through. I don't have details but I hope she went quickly. There but for the grace of God go I.

  12. Our Final Warning: Six Degrees of Climate Emergency by Mark Lynas This is a grim read that covers in excruciating detail what will happen to the planet and it's ecosystems with each additional degree of average warming. This...isn't light reading.
  13. I think you might be experiencing "no man's land." You quit smoking, The honeymoon is over and...is this it? I don't believe everyone goes through this stage. I know I skirted it. Your looking back at your smoking days and thinking things were better back then. Questions for you. How often do you find yourself in a good mood? Throughout an average day are you mostly in a good mood, bad mood, even keel, numb, irritable, sad, energetic...? How does your current moods compare to when you smoked?

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.
