    Any Walking Dead Fans?

    honestly if I wasn't a fan from the beginning I wouldn't even watch it. But....I can't quit now...haha
  4. that warm feeling you feel when you inhale your cigarette....that's part of the lie. Yes...of course it feels good, of course you get that aaahhhh feeling...of course you would confuse that with pleasure...similar to wearing tight shoes all day and when you take them off..it feels so good. But....is taking shoes off "fun"? no, of course not. It is relief from the suffering. But after a while...you have to go back outside and if you put those shoes back on...the misery starts all over again. After a while...your brain associates removing the shoes with pleasure. But it's ridiculous, right? That feeling you describe is the same thing...not pleasure...but relief from suffering. Only, the suffering compared to wearing horribly tight shoes is minimal really. More like an uneasy feeling, edginess. But the good news is...it doesn't last. If you never put another cigarette in your mouth again...the feeling is temporary. However....if you cave and smoke that cigarette, you are either 1. going to experience that withdrawal every 20 minutes as long as you are a smoker. OR.2..you are going to keep "trying" to quit..putting yourself in withdrawal even longer and that really is unnecessary. Either way.... 1 or 2..you suffer At least when you never take another puff...the suffering does end. and it ends well!! Hang in there! THat's why we are here. To get you through the tough times.

You have given the opportunity for so many people to come here and find support! Out of the kindness of your own heart and your dedication to helping people escape that nasty addiction. On your own dime! Never once asking for any money or promoting an products. I can't thank you enough! For your help, for your friendship...and for your dedication!! Celebrate in a big way!!!! Woo hoo!! Party on the train!!

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.
