    rebellious

    I am going to do something rebellious today and I'm NOT going to go buy a pack of cigarettes. It's what everyone's expecting, including me. So I'm going to do the opposite.

    commitment

    I wish I could come to this point, but I don't feel I've made a commitment with myself to quit smoking forever. I don't know why.
  3. I haven't used the gum or inhaler at all this time. That means after three days I should be over the worst of the withdrawls I think. I am feeling good about this quit attempt. This might be the one.

    three days

    I've hit the three day mark. Yay! I suppose I'm doing pretty good, I haven't been obsessing over cigarettes like I was last time. I guess I'm just too busy and stressed out to be obsessing over it. Lots of cravings, but not obsessing for hours at a time. Quite irritable yesterday. I feel less irritable this morning. I am quitting caffeine as well. Doctor's orders. So I will be drinking my last cup tomorrow morning. I had to cut down over several days. I have had insomnia the past three nights. it gets better each night. I got a little pissed yesterday morning as I woke up, when I realized I couldn't have a cigarette,and I said "goddammit!". I just have to remind myself I CAN if I want, I just choose not to. I CHOOSE NOT TO!!!!

    two days

    I'm now past the second day mark for this quit. I still have a good feeling about this time, like this is finally the time that I'll do it. I am pretty stressed out about other things that I'm dealing with. But I seem to be managing fairly well with out a cigarette.

    The good and the bad

    Almost two days into this quit. I have a good feeling about this one. The good: heart palpitations have just about stopped, time seems to be going at a normal pace, not obsessing about smoking/cigarettes The bad: severe insomnia, I can only sleep for a few minutes to about a half an hour. very irritable, which is highly unusual, even for a quit attempt Thoughts: this seems like a horrible time to quit, with everything that is going on right now, with family and with health issues. On the other hand, there is never going to be an "ideal" time to quit. I'm always going to have something going on. With my oldest son here it helps out a lot.

    Trying again

    This will be my sixth or seventh attempt since I first started trying to quit at the beginning of the year. Wish me luck.

    Haven't given up

    I just have to keep trying. I can't sleep, it looks like an all-nighter. I am going to make it worse by having coffee in a half hour or so. I will sleep for a couple hours after my boyfriend gets up. It's easier to sleep when he's awake anyway. Luckily it's the weekend so he's home all day. He didn't buy a pack tonight, so I think he's ready to quit. I hope so. I will quit again by wednesday, for certain reasons I won't go into here right now.

    agitated and manic

    I also have schizoaffective disorder, so manic is relatively normal for me I guess

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.
