    One Week!

    So glad you checked in and you are still smoke free. How are you feeling ? Any advise for newbies ? I quit cold turkey and have no experience with the patch but, there are folks here with successful quits who used the patch. Maybe, @WeegieWoman will pop in and tell of her success with the patch. Keep learning all you can about addiction, this will fortify your quit and don't forget to reward yourself when you let go of the patch. You will need to trick your brain receptors at first and teach them what rewards are all about.

    Sitting here crying wanting so bad to smoke

    Don't be ashamed for 'coming so close'. We are human and can only take so much. You are under tremendous strain, aside from your mother's abuse. 'Coming close' is allowed, posting an SOS is brilliant, protecting yourself and your quit is magnificent ! Get some rest, I can only imagine how tired you are.

    Take some really deep breaths. You walked away from abusing yourself with cigarettes. You will walk away from this abusive situation. Once the dust settles, you can use the same lessons you learned in quitting smoking and apply it to your abusive parents. Not One Puff Ever....Not One More Abusive Tirade EVER. You are a beautiful grown up woman who has quit a deadly addiction... I know you will be kind to yourself and remove yourself from abuse. We will help all we can because we know how precious and beautiful you truly are.

    You don't smoke anymore, Linda. Any 'relief' you think that cigarettes can provide is a big fat LIE. Sure, if you re-start your addiction, you will get relief.... but, that will be relief from withdrawals only. There is no relief in cigarettes for the drama/trauma you are dealing with. Please, get some help in getting your mother unit to your dad's rehab place. You cannot do this all on your own. Nobody should. Please put yourself and your quit FIRST. I know you won't smoke but, can you distance yourself from this family insanity ? I hope so. We support you, S
  10. This is a great post from Craig, Jillar. Thanks for the re-post. We must never become complacent because addiction doesn't disappear, it can only be put to sleep and kept asleep.

    What are you doing right now

    Thinking of you and hoping you can find alternative transport for the mother unit. Be very, very careful with the snow coming up. DO NOT TAKE CHANCES with your sweet self.

  21. Opah, As with any major life change, emotions are bound to run high...even OTT. Crying is good for us, it waters our eyes so they can grow. While I was rooting around in the stacks, I found this post from Joel. It may be helpful. Understanding the emotional loss experienced...

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.
