  1. Ha, the only company I truly enjoyed very early on was my Labrador's. He got a lot of walks the first weekend.
  2. I napped a lot just to escape a the cravings for a bit while still moving the clock. Seriously. But I was a very grumpy quitter.
  3. I have been dubbed Pirate Carmen the Parrotless, which is just as well, I suppose, if you're a penguin. Aaar! Argh.
  4. Welcome Eight-Toe-Joe and congratulations on your eleven foggy days! Eat, drink, walk, nap, pet the dog, stare blankly at a crossword puzzle, stay off the road — and one day soon your brain will forget to fog. Keep up the great work!
  5. You're well on your way, Diane! I didn't use Chantix but I did cut down and "practice" not smoking in various situations for quite a while prior to actually quitting. This method isn't recommended by most people, but I was such a heavy smoker for 40 years and was used to smoking everywhere (house, car, outside of work, etc.) so cutting back and getting used to not always being able to smoke was a huge help for me. I imagine cutting back with Chantix helps in somewhat the same way, with the big bonus of making you have less desire to smoke. Whatever works for you is the best way to get through this, and it sounds as if you are determined to make this your final quit. We'll be rooting you on all the way!
  6. Be careful out there, sazerac! It the flooding already looks terrible from the videos I've seen, at least in some areas.
  7. Great job, great attitude. It should keep getting easier overall from here. As you know, it's not always completely linear, but you get better and better at dealing with any bumps in the road.
  8. How absolutely heartbreaking, Doreen. As loved as you are from afar, I can imagine that having you in his life and by his side every day made Tony a very rich man. I hope that gives you peace and allows the good memories to surface soon, as difficult as it is now.
  9. Nope. You're doing all the work, Lily. Great job.
  10. Huge congratulations, Sammy! I quit after over 40 years of smoking and no one was ever more surprised to learn that it was actually doable for the long term. Not fun, at least for me, but doable. So the next trick is to find your "fun" somewhere else. If your dog is anything like mine was, I'm sure he's rooting for you to make sure you get out everyday and spend more time at the end of his leash enjoying the fresh air.
  11. Oh, that really, really stinks, Linda! I had a couple of implants that failed initially and then were redone after some bone growth. How long were they in before they failed?
  12. I completely understand this and it's exactly the way I needed to think in order to get through it -- by always giving myself an out so that every day it was my choice. Love hearing about how proud your kids are of you! Nothing can come close to that, but I'm pretty proud of you too. You kept trying until you made it happen -- big stuff, and most importantly you should be very proud of you.
  13. Hope you kick that cold soon. Not what you needed, but hopefully it will be over soon. Any chance you can get on a waiting list for an earlier pulmo appointment if they have a cancellation?
  14. Hi Abby, just checking in to see how you are doing. Have you seen the pulmonologist yet? Hopefully they are figuring things out and getting you on the road to recovery. Wishing you the very best and hoping that you're getting some relief from your symptoms.

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.
