    Decisions/Resolve

    I certainly made the decision to quit and made the decision to commit to my quit. Everyday I make this decision. Everyday I stand by my decision. Usually when thoughtful decisions take precedence over my actions chaos remains at bay. When actions take precedence over thoughtful decisions.... Well. You. Can. Imagine.

    Not So Smooth Sailing.... WOT THE?

    Darlin' Jo, Your quit is young and smoky thoughts will continue, do not fear them. They will become less and less important. Believe me but, they may pop up randomly for the rest of our days. Any flicker of a smoky thought is now vague for me. It isn't even annoying anymore. It has no power except I use them as a reminder to remain vigilent. Your smoky thoughts have no power, YOU have the power. I know addiction is a subversive condition and we must always pay attention to it's temptation. All we can do is say, NOPE. friggin' HELL NOPE. NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE It is kinda like H A L T too, trying to figure out what the body is calling out for. For me, after I was well into my quit...my body was calling out for some kind of comfort, something to give me a bump of endorphins. Sometimes just smiling for no reason, even a fake smile did the job. Other times, I would walk or listen to some favorite music, dance aound or participate in 'Stewie Techs' favourite activity (ahem). Something that assuredly cheered me helped smoky thoughts fade away. You have so much going on right now, baby. Try to stay on the good foot. Listen to the good brother, James Brown

    For the umpires teen time.

    Welcome to our merry band of quitters, Zeezazz ! Congratulations on making the decision to quit. You may find this thread helpful 10 ways to effectively use this forum Don't fret about weight, you know how to loose it and quitting smoking adds a few lbs just for quitting. It is your body protecting itself. If you eat right and exercise you will be fine. Exercise is a great way to beat craves and satsumas are also helpful to snack on. I don't know how to advise you about telling your family or not. You don't have to fulfil a previous prophecy. You don't have to be a lunatic when you quit. I found that education and more understanding about addiction quelled my inner cuckoo pretty well. You can choose to be calmer. Meditation will help. You are right about being vigilent about never taking another puff. We have a daily pledge page, Not One Puff Ever, NOPE. Stay close to the board and post often, let us get to know you and let others read your story. You never know who will read about your experience and be inspired to quit. Don't forget to have some fun too, there is an active group of game players and they are marvelous. We are all here to cheer you on and watch you succeed.

    Sleep and obsession

    Exercise ? Invigorating showers ? Vit B12 ? and lots of it. Are you overloading on caffeine ? Don't. Quitting smoking heightens the effect of caffeine. Willful determination ? Wake yourself up after 8 hours, too much sleep begets too much sleep. Your quit looks great on you Sneaky one, hold on. Things will get much better by and by. You will have to trust us on this.

    Welcome Back to our Re-boot Quitters

    Dear fellow addicts, There is no shame in failure, only an opportunity to learn. Personal responsibility is one thing and you must, of course, own your success or your relapse but, please remember we are dealing with ADDICTION which is outside most of our consciousnesses. The first part of any successful quit is admitting an addiction to nicotine and we must learn and understand all we can in order to put it down. According to The National Institute on Drug Abuse, "Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain—they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long-lasting, and can lead to the harmful behaviors seen in people who abuse drugs. Quitting smoking may not be a walk in the park but, it will bring you physical and emotional benefits that are astounding. It is not impossible. You will live through any discomfort. We all quit and we may think of ourselves as Super men and women but, we are just like you. Nicotine addicts. I encourage you to put this dangerous and deadly addiction to rest and start enjoying your freedom, your newfound confidence, your beautiful life. love, S

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.
