  1. I do keep changing it, but it always reverts back to the old one
  2. 50 hours. Weird. Had a nice day out shopping. Hungry though. Just going to forgive myself for my bad food choices until day three is over!
  3. I've just got home from work. Weirdly no cravings so far. Just need to find ways to fill those gaps....so having a cup of tea in the sun.
  4. Thanks all. I'd forgotten that most folk are in completely different time zones to me. I live in France! Thanks for your encouragement. 16 hours without a cigarette....whoop!
  5. Hi. I'm not exactly new here. Just a failed ex forum member. But I'm back now. Quit two hours ago. All cigarette reminders thrown away. I've come to bed with my cats. I'm very stressed right now....not the lack of cigarettes....yet.....but the shame of what I have done to my body over the years and I don't feel I can talk to anyone about it. Hence why I am here. Nice to meet you all.
  6. Thank you. I feel like a teenager again. This quit is knocking years off me. Thank you.
  7. I am nearly two weeks into my quit. Has acne been a problem for anyone else when quitting? I never get spots but seem to have loads now. Not worried or bothered, just curious.
  8. So. Finally my luck seems to be changing. ...at least a little. I've gone and got myself a part time job. Might not seem.like a big deal, but this is the first time I've ever applied for a job living in france (I am English ). So I feel a little relieved financially plus I get to get out of the house and meet new people. I also work as a self employed translator but since my separation I have just found the isolation increasingly difficult. So maybe things are looking up for me at last.
  9. I know. I've just eaten two cornetto ice creams
  10. Wow. It's a week today that I stopped smoking. I now have quitters lurgy....but hey Ho. Onwards and upwards
  11. I don't think it's a fruiting kind unfortunately. But it has very large leaves for me to put my hammock under!
  12. It's a kind of mulberry tree. I wanted something to provide shade in the summer and this was recommended. Time will tell!

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.
