    This or That game

    Really neither.... but probably Stay at home preparing last minute stuff is closest. (Really I got to Carols By Candelight and then Midnight Mass... unless I have to work chrissy eve.... then I watch carols by candelight on the telly and go to midnight mass) Does you family have a unique christmas tradition or are you just like a disney movie? Junket is probably most like blancmange... it is like a milk jelly you make by adding a tablet to milk.

    Christian99 is 17 Years Smoke Free Today!!!

    Wow Christian 17 years is almost a lifetime. It is great too that you have stuck around to show those of us coming behind that being smoke free is not just a dream but if we put in the work it can be our reality too. I love seeing your posts with that impressive year total it is such a calming sight.... 17 years. I am sorry I missed your journal that was on the other site, it sounds like a wonderful resource. Thank you again for staying the course and still being here paying it forward. And well done on taking your life back 17 years ago.

    Easy to quit.. easy to Start?

    Sadly there is no magic wand or miracle cure... and what works for one doesn't necessarily work for others. I highly recommend getting a copy of Allan Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking book. I know heaps of people who have had success with that. So biggest tip early on... drink fruit juice... you need to keep your fluids up and you need to keep your blood sugar up... fruit juice does both in one hit.... seriously the change in nicotine levels in your body affect your blood sugar and bodies resistance to insulin. So nicotine addiction basically re-wires your brain and when you quit part of the process includes rewiring that conditioning. So I have quit before this time and can I just say arming myself with knowledge was a huge part of my success... learning about nicotine addiction and how it affects my brain and my body was a key factor in getting through those early days. For many of us being able to realise Ahh this is happening because x, y, z, and knowing what would come next made getting through the rough patches easier. I also had a memory game on my phone... the game repeated itself for a 5 minute period and I only played it when I had a crave... by having to focus my thinking on the memory game the crave had nowhere to get a hold and it really did pass in 3-5 mins. SO drink lots of juice. Have something to chew or suck (hard lollies/sweets/candies) learn everything you can about nicotine addiction and the smoking industry. The biggest single piece of advice I got early in my quit... just take it one day at a time.... in the morning when you wake make the committment to not smoke today, just today, today I will not smoke.... don't worry about tomorrow or yesterday just today... that is all you have to get through.... and you know you can do it, today is 24hours, you haven't had a smoke for 4 days... whats another 24 hours... you know you can go 24 hours, its just one day.... then the next day when you get up... its a new day, promise your self you are not going to smoke today. One day at a time. I have been making myself that promise every day for over a year. I quit again every morning, I only quit for one day, that's all I worry about, just that one day... before you realise it its a week, then a month, then 6, then a year... which I am fairly stoked about... but I only ever worry about today.

    Good morning NOPErs. To day is a couple of things but they are all boring and not interesting... so Fun Fact... well kinda Fun Fact... maybe deeply disturbing fact.... did you know Aussie animals are sex fiends .... the majority of Koalas in the country are infected with Clamidia except for a small group who live on an island...yes, all those eucalyptus fueled orgies have lead to mass blindness from clamydia... well let me tell you the wombats and the kangroos shouldn't be laughing too hard... they are all riddled with herpes... yep herpes... almost half the wild wombats and 92% of the Eastern Grey Kangaroos are infected.... between then scientists in melbourne have discovered 6 new strains of herpes... so next time you see a safe sex add just think... not being careful will make you just like an Aussie animal... a root rat and diseased. NOPE ... cos nothing controls me but me.

    Welcome Back to our Re-boot Quitters

    Think this needs a bump.... also... this time of year is hard in the early days of a quit, there are functions and parties all the time for the festive season... often someone who has quit will slip up during this time while out celebrating with friends and have a smoke and throw away their quit.... Its right to feel bad about it, all that hard work lost, all that effort up in smoke... it is right to be disappointing in yourself BUT don't beat yourself up too much... it is a very rare bread of smoker who is able to quit successfully on their very first go.... most of us have failed quits under our belts, some only a few hours old, some days, weeks, months or even years... but you know what you do... you get back on the quit train as soon as you.... you learn from your failed quit... what triggered you to smoke, how or what you could have done to avoid it and you don't make that mistake again... doesn't mean you wont make more mistakes, just learn from the ones you do... take those lessons, remember how wonderful your success felt and remember how low failing felt... pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back on the Quit Train.... we have a seat here with your name on it.... we want you to come back... we want you to try again... so please do, please come back... take if from someone who wait well more than a decade to quit again after throwing away a really long quit.... the sooner you quit again the easier and better for you. NEVER GIVE UP GIVING UP!
  14. I was nearly 3 months using NRT before I stopped. I know others have been 6 months. Everyone is different and you will know when it is right. Why have you changed your name again? Just curious. Also for books online you can try the book depository which has free shipping.

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.
