  1. Thank you all for the warm welcome, I really appreciate it!
  2. Thank you Doreen, just reading your posts over the past couple of weeks has been super inspiring to me. I can honestly say reading the posts on this board has really been a saving grace for me, so I am very very thankful I found it! When I started this quit, I knew that I wanted it, but doubted myself and my ability to actually do it, but then stumbled upon this community and it has really given me the confidence I needed to get into the right mindset to make this quit my last quit. I feel better health wise already, its amazing.
  3. Hi everyone! I am new here, but I will admit to lurking for the last few weeks. I had my last cigarette 2 weeks ago, yay me! I probably won't post a whole lot, but it has been very inspiring and helpful to me to read everyone's posts here. I do intend to do my daily NOPE though. I don't know if my mindset is finally right this time, but so far, things are going pretty good. I smoked way way too long and of course, tried several times to quit, with patches, cold turkey, cutting back, etc. I have read Alan Carr's book, and I re-read it too; however, contrary to what Mr. Carr teaches, I am wearing the patch and aside from the first several days of feeling anxious and a little extra crabby, every day gets a little easier. Evenings are the hardest for me, so with the help of pretzels, candy, chocolate, Netflix binge watching, and going to bed early, I have been able to manage my craves. I saw a couple people in their cars smoking yesterday and all I thought was I feel sorry for them, when with past quit attempts I would always see someone smoking and think I want one too. Now I have no desire for one and I for sure never want to have to quit again, so definitely just NOPE!!

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.
