  10. The point is having control over your life and control over your addiction. The point is discovering reserves of self esteem and self respect. The point is finding you are able to trust yourself not to poison and kill yourself. The point is not suffering with nicotine withdrawals every twenty minutes, every day as a smoker. You must choose. The discomfort you are in is caused by addiction to nicotine. This will be eliminated when nicotine is no longer a part of your life and your body begins its healing.

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.
