  1. Welcome aboard, Christine. I smoked for 20 years too. When I first started smoking (back in college), I had quite a few smoking friends and it was a social thing to do (also a stupid thing). As I grew older, fewer and fewer of my friends smoked and it went from being a social habit to an anti-social one. It was something I grew ashamed of as well so I get the feeling of isolation that can came from being a smoker in a world that increasingly looks down on smoking. Life really does become better on many levels once you quit for good. Not having to worry about how you smell or how other people see you as a smoker is one of the many benefits. Stick around. Read up on nicotine addiction and participate in the forums. The support and knowledge here can really help you quit for good.
  2. Welcome, Tony! Educating yourself about nicotine addiction really helps. The more you know about the addiction, the better prepared you are to beat it. Also, support helps a lot too. You can find both education and support here. Read up on addiction on this site and please feel to reach out if you are struggling. Quitting might be tough but it is doable and a smoke-free life is much better than the pain of continuing to smoke.
  3. Congratulations on 2 months smoke free, Diane! Keep up the great work!
  4. Congratulations on 5 months smoke free, Warbelian!
  5. Congratulations on 8 months of freedom, Solo! Keep up the great work.
  6. Congratulations on 9 years of freedom, Avian! Do something to celebrate today.
  7. Welcome to QuitTrain, SOS. I'm sorry to hear about your relapse. 2 weeks is a great start back, though. Smoking really brings nothing positive at all to your life, just negative. You will be so much better off putting that behind you for good. Stick close to this site. Read as much as you can and reach out whenever you need help. Education and support is what helped me quit for good and you can get both here.
  8. Congratulations Garry! 3 years smoke free is excellent. Thanks for sticking around to help support others
  9. NOPE! Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!
  10. Congratulations on 6 months smoke free, QueenB! You are doing great!

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.
