  1. Losing my way

    Wow! 80-plus days without this so called ‘friend’. You know he’s not your buddy! Buddy’s don’t want to kill you, do they? Good idea to get in early. It might help to relax a bit more. Hang in there! Dutchess
  2. My Quit Day!

    Hi Beaglelover, I don’t know what made you to decide this, but please be aware this is one of the best decisions you ever made. It’s not an easy one, but here you are in the right place with many people who know what you are going through. Use it! Dutchess
  3. Weaning off Champix

    Hi Roopy, I used Chantix for more than 3 months, although the last weeks not the full dose. One a day, or every other day. After that when the stress levels were too high I sometimes took half a pill. So I weaned off very slowly and listened to my heart. But hey that’s me. If you think you need Chantix a little longer, please do. As long as your quit stays in tact. Good luck! Dutchess
  4. Name the most re-watchable movie in history.

    Nobody likes Star Wars?
  5. Despair Not Reaches The Lido Deck Today!!

    See what you have accomplished while not despairing! Congratulations and enjoy this wonderful day. Fly like an eagle! Love, Dutchess
  6. Name the most re-watchable movie in history.

    Nice topic. I love historical movies. Especially when they are larded with epic music. So for me: The man in the iron mask. My favourite actors in this movie are Gabriel Byrne and Jeremy Irons. In a few weeks I hope to visit the castle(s) again 😊 when we stay near Paris for a week. So much one can do when one quits smoking! Dutchess
  7. My ticker...

    Guess what: it works now. Thank you for your time! Dutchess
  8. My ticker...

    Dear admin, At the QSMB I was not one of the bright lights regarding adding pictures or signatures. I’m afraid it is not getting any better here (my fault, not yours). I did copy and paste my ticker in my signature (and saved it), but is doesn’t seem to update somehow. Can you please help me? Thank you! Dutchess
  9. I would have smoked more and inhaled deeper. I hated light sigarettes. Better yet to make smoking much more expensive and invest in good addiction treatment. And in prevention of course. Dutchess

    P.s. In the mean time everybody has a ticker now, but mine doesn’t seem to work...
  11. Name one thing you are happy to be free of

    Nice topic. I don’t miss: The panic when I almost ran out of cigs at night. The smell I had around me. The people feeling sorry for me. My empty wallet. My ailing health. But the worst thing was the shame. The shame I could not quit te cigs while knowing they were killing me. Dutchess

    Hi Mollie, Thank you for your kind words. Soon it will be your turn! Wow, both grandparents from Friesland, the Netherlands. So somehow we share the same roots right? Have a nice day! Dutchess
  13. Dutchess66 Is On The Lido Deck Today!!

    Dear Lin, That sounds like a very good idea. And in the meantime we can celebrate many other anniversaries! Helping other quitters is a very important thing. It is something you are very good at. Looking forward to a new year with new adventures. For better and for worse. Hugs, Dutchess
  14. Dutchess66 Is On The Lido Deck Today!!

    My dear friends, Thank you all very much for your kind words. It has been a very difficult journey for me, but I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it. The reward is so very beautiful! My health is better, my wallet is fuller, I have new friends: you!. A place like this (and the old QSMB) means a lot to me. Although it is sometimes hard for me to express myself as I would like, please understand and be patient with me because English is not my native language. Today my family and I went out for dinner to celebrate this wonderful achievement. The picture (made by my husband) I send you was made on the SS Rotterdam, she is resting in the port of Rotterdam, but stil has a Lido Deck. So please dig in and enjoy! Love, Dutchess
  15. Welcome Putnamin

    Hello from me too!

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.
