  1. Abby I would like to present the flip side of the coin, since some people who are considering quitting may think that it’s not worth the effort if they’ll still have to focus on remaining quit many years later. I smoked for around 38 years or so. I was as addicted as you can possibly be. I planned every activity in my day around accessibility to smoking. I thought I liked smoking and that it had a calming and pleasurable affect on me. I have quit for close to 6 years and live a life where I don’t think about smoking. I am active, energetic, and much happier and healthier. Don’t get me wrong. It took a long time to get to this place of comfort. But it did happen and it truly is the realization of how great I envisaged freedom would be. I just want people to know that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Whatever you're doing to keep your quit is obviously working well for you. Whether you think about it every day or never at all, 10 years is an amazing and inspiring quit. Keep up the great work.
  2. It's kinda sad that all the other years are so jelly of the 2015 Badashes. We can't help it if we're bad.
  3. I think the point of this thread is to "come out" and admit to liking a song that you secretly enjoy, but were always embarrassed to admit to liking it. With that said....

  5. Good to hear that you have been able to get that first dose @Sunshine59. I hope that availability is becoming less of an issue in India. It's upsetting to see there are still millions of people desperate to get vaccinated and conversely millions of others who have the opportunity, but choose not to. I understand that the AztraSeneca vaccine dosage is supposed to be 2 shots 8-12 weeks apart. That means you should have your 2nd dose no later than October 12. You may want to look into that as you mentioned November in your original post. Anyway, glad you're getting a high level of protection against serious illness and death from COVID. It does give you a welcome sense of security. Great news on keeping the quit too!
  6. Disaster Girl likes my 51K+ butts in the fire.
  7. Congratulations Robbie. Nice quit you've got there!
  8. Six months is a mega-milestone....congrats Linda!
  9. Congratulations Steven. Great job!
  10. I save over $5K per year. I don't really designate where most of that savings goes except for one thing. A year after I quit I started giving $1000 annually to my favorite charity. Feels good knowing that money that used to go my own destruction is now being put to good use.
  11. This is right near Mt Whitney (in between Yosemite and Sequoia national parks). It's about 240 miles south of Lake Tahoe.
  12. @Kate18 Smoking does NOT cure anxiety and depression. Smoking DOES increase the likelihood of MANY diseases: · Lung Cancer – Smoking is the number cause of lung cancer · Heart Disease – 1 out of every 5 heart disease deaths is directly related to smoking · Diabetes – Smoking causes type 2 diabetes · Liver Cancer – Smoking increases your chance of getting liver cancer · Vision Loss – Studies show that smoking increases the risk of developing cataracts and glaucoma · Rheumatoid Arthritis – Smoking increases your risk of developing RA · Colorectal Cancer – Those who smoke are more likely to die from colorectal cancer · Loss of years of life – Those who smoke may lose up to 10 years of life · Stroke – Smoking thickens the blood and is a direct cause of stroke · Bladder Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Throat Cancer, Mouth Cancer - All are more likely if you smoke · Hearing Loss – People who smoke are 70% more likely to develop hearing loss · COPD – Smokers are 20% more likely to develop COPD This is just a small list of the terrible consequences of smoking. Don't let your junkie thoughts twist you into believing smoking will help you through this rough patch! Keep your awesome quit!

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.
