  1. Balls! I missed the actual day again! Today is my birthday and it just dawned on me my quit date anniversary was 2 days ago. Thanks for the thread and the well wishes, much appreciated, especially as I'm never here. So there you go @notsmokinjo, that's what 4 years quit feels like - I don't even remember I used to smoke and quit half the time. Smoking just isn't an issue I think about anymore - except for the stink ... that will always be an issue!
  2. Bahaahahahahahhah thanks Bakon, looks delish!
  3. 3 years and one day woohoo.  Can't believe I missed the actual date again.  

  4. I just remembered today! I missed it again lmao. Thanks folks, this was a nice surprise. I came along this morning to do a feed update with a 3 years and 1 day and did a double take when I saw this thread. It's my birthday tomorrow so a double celebration tomorrow me thinks.
  5. According to my little quit app counter thingy : 999 days quit, 14,999 cigs avoided ... :D

      Thanks folks :)

  6. Me too! I don't really need the reward any more ... I just like to buy myself presents :d
  7. So sorry to read this Tracey, condolences to you and your family.
  8. When I was a tea drinker I drank Earl Grey and I am definitely NOT posh .. then I quit smoking and my taste buds said nope ... can't stand any tea now bleeeech
  9. "You can't help folk who won't help themselves" ... or something very like that ... I heard it or read it somewhere but yeah, planting that seed is all you can do and hope they catch on sooner rather than later. Nicotine addiction sucks ... I told about my brother on another thread but my sister also used to smoke and quit years ago using nicotine gum - which she is now addicted too - AND still smokes on a night out or stressful situations. She also takes drugs for high blood pressure. I've tried to help but she has head firmly in the sand ...
  10. Hi folks, hope all are well and kicking those quits. Today my brother came to visit - he used to smoke but quit about 20 years ago - I have been quit a little over 2 years. Anyhoo, he noticed I was talking a bit funny and asked what was wrong with my mouth. I told him I have 2 ulcers (cankers) - 1 on the tip of my tongue and 1 on the side of my tongue near the back. What's that from he says ... I replied well, remember I have oral sensitivity since I quit smoking, (I have fibromyalgia, the symptoms of which went a little haywire after I quit - oral sensitivity being one of my 'new' symptoms) and I had some coleslaw last Friday, I think it was that caused the ulcers. He replied, why don't you start smoking again then? That'll stop the ulcers ... erm really?? Well says I, I usually have it under control and I know more or less what I shouldn't eat and drink but sometimes I can't help having something yummy or it takes me by surprise - like lemon oil in my lip salve! More to the point though, I don't actually want to smoke anymore - I have no desire to smoke ... it's just not part of who I am any more. He then told me how he would smoke if he could - if he could just smoke say up to 10 a day he would revert back to smoking but knows he wouldn't be able to stick at that so that's why he stays smober. WOW ... he's been quit over 20 years but still wants to smoke??!! I just can't imagine thinking that way. And the only difference I can think of is 20 years ago Joel Spitzer wasn't all over the internet. Or maybe he was and my brother just didn't have a computer. Whatever ... the point is ... all over the internet, including on this very site, is a wealth of information that can change your attitude towards smoking and quitting. I have benefited from that 'education' whereas my brother remains convinced he enjoyed smoking and it helped him relax and all those other myths we were fed .. Educate yourself people! It makes a world of difference. Ok so champix helped too in my case but really ... education :)
  11. The best thing about being a non smoker? No longer walking around in a big ol cloud of stink. That was a huge motivator for me to stay quit. 24 days is great - just remember that you will experience ups and downs along your quit journey, good days and bad. Keep breathing through your craves and don't worry too much about being cranky. Our loved ones forgive us when they know it's part of the quit experience.

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.
