  1. I still can't believe it's been 7 years! Someone just brought it up to me today at work asking me how long it has been. With this crazy heat and humidity in the air these days I sometimes find it hard to breathe. (even people who never smoked are feeling it. Yes....I needed to check...that's what ex smokers do. Worried our pasta will come back to haunt us) Anyway....after all that babbling (which bacon says is my specialty) I am just so grateful I am no longer a slave to that horrible addiction. Thank you all so much for the shout out and thank you recip for keeping us straight on our milestones. I love you guys. keep on keeping NOPE!!! xoxoxoxoxo ps. ••past, not pasta. darn auto correct. but i left it there because it was funny and heck...sometimes my pasta does catch up with me. lol

    11 good morning all!
  3. totally agree! there is nothing like a runners "high" but the beauty is it lasts all day long and it's healthy unless you injure yourself or have bad knees of course
  4. way to go Nancy! Seems like yesterday you were a newbie! WOO hoo!!!
  5. F**** Marlboro Box!! The sight of the box just makes me cringe!
  6. my thoughts, prayers, and love to you Doreen! Thank you for letting us know xoxoxoxo
  7. the first year is tough...but, you have come so far! I remember feeling frustrated even at 10 months. The addict in you tries to convince you that the way you react to life circumstances are a result of you quitting. Actually...your reactions and thoughts are a result of having been a smoker in the first place. Your brain is doing some serious rewiring....this is the toughest part but as long as you don't take a puff, you are one day closer to complete freedom. The opposite is true if you DO take a puff. Keep on keeping on!!!
  8. good job Julie in coming here! Thanks to you all!!
  9. Before I get yelled at for the picture, I have nothing against NRT's that are used correctly. You've got this Lilly!!
  10. If a person chooses to use the nicotine gum to quit smoking, it is irresponsible for anyone to advocate just "popping" a piece of gum whenever the craving hits. It is against this boards policy to support the use of nicotine as a replacement for smoking unless its use is to quit altogether. Follow directions. The Gum is a 12 week program. The patch has a program as well. Anything other than following the products directions is abusing the product and giving very poor advice. You are only fooling yourself if you think you are not still addicted. and one more thing. Just sayin'...... NOPE is the way for me!
  11. Just reading this now! You guys are amazing! I love you all!

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.
