    Unexpected ahhh

    yep...celebratory craves are the worst!!! best way I got through it was with humor. I would talk to the addiction like it was a thing in me....and I would say...OMG..nice try you little sucker! LOL...you sneaky sneaky smarty pants!" I would just keep talking like that...I would even go as far as "I give you credit for your creativity you brat....etc. " until the craving went away...and then I would just laugh. If it came back I would just do it over and over. Some days were like that. Yep...all kinds of goodies pop up the first year....all exercises to keep you a warrior!! Good practice...and good on you for posting!! here's how I pictured he looked like

    a big hot cup of NOPE for my coffee. I can't believe I used to think I could never drink coffee without my cigarette. Such a strange foreign idea to me now.

    Who's on the train...

    HELLO EVERYONE!! Name: Barb AKA: Babs, Babbles, backseat babs, moderator Quit Date: July 13, 2012 About me: In a very good place in my life and grateful for every day I wake up. Why I quit: My dad died from lung cancer. I battled and battled with many failed attempts. Then my daughter told me I was going to be a grandmother for the first time. That was my sign. THIS child will NEVER know me as a smoker. She just turned 6 My advice: Smoking thoughts still come back even years later. They are brief but that little nagging bugger is still there. It is STILL stronger than me. But, I am way smarter than IT. The addiction doesn't have a brain, I do. Knowledge is power. That stupid idea that one puff will give me that "ahhhh" feeling it wants....well that's just an illusion. It doesn't exist now that I am a non smoker. I would cough...hate it...be disappointed that I did it...and swear to never take another puff. Only now...I woke up the little bugger...and he will show his nasty existence again even sooner this time...and stronger. and the nightmare begins again. NO THANKS!!!!

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.
