  1. I think of bakon's answer whenever I think of this question. A really profound answer from our mad, mad friend and ally. And while I am super confident about my quit, it is an integral part of my life, this freedom from addiction, I will only be confident tomorrow if I stay free today.
  2. Listen to Paul. I did and he helped me build a successful quit. I had to make the effort to replace the smokey thoughts with other thoughts. I chose to find something of beauty to look at or listen to which would bump endorphins. Beauty. That light on that leaf, a color, a beautiful cloud here for a moment, the face of a loved one, a special picture or painting, listening to a song that you love, reading a favorite poem or passage in a book. You know your own beauty and how to find it. Use this to your advantage. Beauty is all around us and it only takes a little focus for the happy endorphins to rush around.
  3. NO relapse is a small relapse or a hiccup. It is a very serious thing. We are talking about life and death here. YES YES YES It is ALL about one's commitment to oneself. This is the only path to freedom from addiction. Just like Mac says and, as a matter of fact, just like Mac is showing all of us with his commitment to himself and to NOPE. Y'all can do this also. Commitment. To. Yourself. To. N.O.P.E.
  4. WOW, Linda....beautiful Linda Congratulations on your TWO YEARS of Freedom, baby. Jo is right....your transformation was so beautiful. See how far you've come ! All you newbies should read Mee's story here is your first post Help and Support
  5. Steven, You should do deep breaths everyday for physical and mental health, when you practice this, it becomes automatic. Deep breathing immediately lowers your blood pressure and helps you to focus. I suggest you go through these to build a successful quit 10 Ways To Effectively Use This Forum To Stop Using Nicotine and importantly, Joel Spitzer's Daily Quitting Lesson Guide Watch all the videos, read the material. This is how to start your education about nicotine addiction.

  7. How long did you smoke, Linda ? You can't expect quick changes although physically the changes do come quick. Keep some patience, you will have good days and bad days just as you did as a smoker Hey You Smoked For 42 Years, Why On Earth Would You Think You Can Get Past The Addiction In A Couple Of Months ?

    Recon data indicates that #Isaias still has max winds of 60-70 mph, though central pressure has risen a bit, a sign of weakening. However, the hostile wind shear is relaxing a bit, which may allow some re-strengthening of Isaias before landfall near the SC/NC border late tonight.

  20. There is nothing a nicotine addict can do NOTHING that doesn't have a cigarette attached in some way from the first thing in the morning till the last thing at night. The craves will come every 20 minutes or so. I put some craves off and usually only smoked 20 per day but, everything I did had an association. EVERYTHING. To be free of that slavery is magnificent.

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.
