  1. How a "C- student who can't settle down or focus for more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time." His ideas around "marginal adjustments" were what got me thinking of how I stayed quit after I quit.
  2. I saw this on YouTube the other day, and remembered when I DECIDED to quit, not just "smoke socially," or taper off over time, or whatever rationalization was letting me try to fool myself that I was addicted to nicotine. I quit the week before Covid hit my county in February 2020. I previously worked in an infectious diseases clinic and also coordinated medical conferences. Every so often we'd have a guest speaker present information on how the next pandemic would start and spread. I watched it on the map online as it crept across China and heard the news about deaths and how smokers were vulnerable. Done. Quit. Cold Turkey. The virus wouldn't have cared if I was a "social smoker." I remember, also, about trying to keep to half a pack a day, or whatever. OK, is it time yet? Should I have one now, or save it for later when I might want it more? Decision fatigue. Made the desire for one even stronger. It is hard to let go, I know. But you can do this. Good luck.

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.
