  1. I'm same as you mate. I just enjoy the runs but I've always timed and set myself targets. One target was to do a lap of the local park in under 20mins. Been trying for years, it's 2.3miles around. I finally did it the other day. Done the full lap in 19mins 40secs. With these little achievements coming thick and fast it is a great spur to stay quit. My lungs are clearing and times are falling.
  2. Been a good few months for me. Been running very regularly. My latest competitive run was a 10k which I completed in 58mins 08secs. I am still at an early stage in my running but I can feel the benefits of not smoking which is a great thing for me personally. Hoping that the fitter I get the more time I can shave off. When I go out for a drink I am still struggling with the demon ciggies but when not drinking I don't have any thought or need of smoking. It's a strange situation for me, but one I totally accept. Drinking brings my defences down. I hardly go out for a drink now so that's a bonus. As I say the benefits I am feeling from not smoking are amazing so I just need to keep on doing what I am doing.
  3. Thanks very much people. A month and a half now. Plenty of running has been the answer for me.
  4. Over a month now and feeling absolutely super. Done a timed 5k today around the local racecourse. Went and had a bit of food straight after then an hour later did another 2 and a half miles. Stuff like this I would never have been able to do if still addicted to the demon nicotine. I'm starting to look at smokers in a different way aswell. It's a way I've never looked at them in the past when I quit smoking. I used to envy them and hate seeing people smoking because I always wanted to be smoking again. This quit I am now seeing them in a different way. I'm pitying the way they are addicted to nicotine. Pitying the fact they spend so much money. Pitying that they just have to smoke to get the hitnif nicotine. Also looking at vapours in the same way. I see it all now as more an addiction to nicotine than enjoying smoking and that makes this different to me.
  5. Absolutely made up with how my quit is moving along. Doing dry January, doing plenty of exercise and watching plenty of films and a little reading. All helping. Every time I get a small urge, because that's all they've been so far, I weigh that one little urge in time up against the time smoking has not even entered my mind and I feel empowered. Onwards and upwards people.
  6. 3 runs completed this last week. A 2 and a half miler on Tuesday and Wednesday and a 6 miler last night (Saturday). The key for me is to keep exercising. I feel the benefits and it helps with my quit. Entering runs in the local area with the money being saved from not smoking.
  7. Going well. That is all. Haven't been posting much or using the daily nope pledge. I'm trying not to think about it as much this time. I became a bit too reliant on this place last time, beating myself up for missing nopes and stuff like that. I'll just keep popping in randomly over the coming months to let you know how I'm getting on. I pop in every now and again to watch videos posted by others aswell. They are most helpful as is reading some of the testimonies on here.
  8. It's crazy because there is a way back. The lungs will repair themselves to a very good degree. They may never be as good as new. You will have caused some irreparable damage but they will be in a lot better condition if you pack in because as I say some self repairing does take place. First time I've seen a video like that and being so early into my new quit it has shocked me a lot.
  9. I'm back. I failed in 2018 but I am determined that 2019 is going to be my year. I had beaten almost every obstacle until the family holiday at the back end of July beginning of August. I am currently reading an Allen Carr book for my inspiration for this quit which I'm determined is going to be my last quit. Ive set myself a time of 11:59pm tonight for my quit and am thoroughly certain this will be my time. I'm going for a run in the morning and will be regularly running alongside eating well. This is it for me. Onwards and upwards people. Good luck if you are also quitting and we'll done to everyone already quit.
  10. Nope and a late nope for yesterday. Missed yesterday due to being very busy.

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.
