  1. The 1st time yes. Was smoke free for 14 weeks, then stupidly thought I would have just one, which turned into two the next day and so on. I smoked an additional 7 months after that, feeling like a failure each time I lit up. Finally I reached that true "want to quit" attitude/mindset. So my doctor renewed the prescription and I began again. I stopped smoking when I was about halfway through the 3 months medication and also stopped the medication the next day, because I felt it was unnecessary with my new attitude (that doesn't mean you or anyone else should stop the medicati
  2. I also used it successfully. Coming up on 4.5 years smoke free. Consult with your doctor first. Well you have to to get the prescription here in the US
  3. Like most have already said, I was told all of that and started anyway. That's why I am working on a flux capacitor..... it'll be ready any day now.
  4. No one ever told me either. People seemed surprised when they found out I smoked. I think they are just being nice as I could smell it on others (even as a smoker). And even through the perfume/cologne they tried to cover it up with. But then when you think more about it... what friend, loved one, or total stranger is honestly going to just rudely blurt out that you, your house, or you vehicle reeks? I never did.
  5. About a week. I had zero desire* to even smoke that last cigarette, but did so anyway out of habit. When the first week passed, I knew I was free. *I used Chantix, which took all the “pleasure” out of smoking.
  6. Also sleep longer now that there are no withdrawal cravings forcing me awake every morning
  7. I’ve had a few recently. Always the same thought inside the dream “when did I start smoking again”
  8. If you’re having urges, I’d argue that you are still in withdrawal
  9. Because cold turkey does not require a consult with a doctor (which you really should do with any NRT) or a prescription to obtain (i.e. Chantix). So any non-medical person can safely recommend it. And also as someone else said, it’s free and you can begin immediately or whenever you’re ready.
  10. Trash them! Right now! Soak in water and throw them out. Having them in easy reach if you get a crave is a relapse waiting to happen. Being forced to leave the house and buy more will make you think twice before smoking, hopefully you’ll remember why you quit.
  11. Kind of stating the obvious there. Being a smoker will of course make you more susceptible to respiratory illness. It’s the number one reason to quit
  12. I still belong to a pro-smoking site (the admin told me that there is no way to delete or cancel accounts). Since I can’t delete my account, I will login occasionally and post subliminal “you don’t love smoking, you’re addicted” messages or indirect “anti-smoking“ messages/replies in random threads. Who knows maybe it makes someone start thinking seriously about quitting
  13. The number of people I see vaping at work has drastically dropped since the reports of lung disease and deaths. Of course, these are adults, not kids looking to get high. But I'm sure that the sudden onset of lung illness and deaths has put some fear into them. Even seen a few that went back to smoking cigarettes.
  14. I averaged 2.5 to 3 hrs. between cigarettes while at work. At home about 90 minutes On average I smoked about 10 cigarettes per day. So glad I made it a point to never smoke in residence or vehicle, otherwise I probably would have smoked much more than I did. Still an addict though Rainy day, wait it out...still raining OK go stand in rain with my umbrella to smoke (addict) Snowing, freezing cold....put on winter coat, stocking cap, and thin gloves I bought just to smoke (addict) On a long road trip. Stop every 2-3 hrs at a rest stop to smoke
  15. Have you found something to do instead of smoking? Hobby, exercise, video games? one of the things I did was go to the theater to watch a movie. As a smoker a shied away from theater because NO SMOKING for 2-3 hrs

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.
