  1. Welcome @JustinHoot99. You've got a great start on your quit. Feel free to post a lot here - we're all ex-smokers and will appreciate and understand what you're going through. Most times someone will jump in to share their own similar experience.
  2. Congratulations @Kris on 3 months. I agree, this is one of the hardest things to do in life and you're doing so well not only in keeping the quit but doing it with all the other things going on in your life. Well done!
  3. Nope! @Cbdave another nice pic! Did we miss 22nd?
  4. That is so coincidental - was it full moon? I too binged on Thu and Fri and it wasn't a nice feeling after.
  5. Congratulations @Gus on the half-year milestone! You're doing really great!
  6. @AceWhite, Congratulations. You're fitter and stronger than you let on to place 5th. That's a strong finish. @Christian99, I was always told to increase weekly mileage in small increments - no more than 10%. I have paid for ambition by getting injured and having to stop running for weeks and in one case over a year. So now I do stretches and also don't push as hard - just happy to get the miles in without injury. I had a couple of really lethargic days - didn't do anything Mon night and went to the stores to buy some un-needed stuff. Tue night was lethargic again but forced myself to the stairs and somehow completed the 9 rounds - it was hard. On the way back, eyes were closing while driving - there was this whole lethargy and overwhelming tiredness.
  7. Congratulations on 2 years @Sunshine59 Awesome milestone!
  8. Congratulations @garry mhudson 5 years is an awesome milestone!
  9. Good to hear you overcame that crave @Opah. And that you posted an SOS first - that is awesome and goes to show your commitment.
  10. Going to Mars.... Life without cigs was such a new and different experience that I imagined I was on a Mars mission experiencing a whole new different world - one way to live unfulfilled dreams
  11. Nope! The morning light on the tree is amazing @Cbdave
  12. Hey @Katgirl, Congratulations! You're doing so great not only with your quit but overall physical health also. Great job!
  13. Congratulations on 3 months @Steven Drojensky. Stay vigilant as 3 months is a tricky milestone.
  14. Congratulations on 8 months, @Linda
  15. I think everything ends in the same place at the end. Managed to avoid the upset tummy this time during re-feeding by introduce food slowly with breaks and avoiding the salad. I suspect it's the raw onion but just skipped it all. @Katgirl, thanks for the explanation.
  16. Nope! Wow @Cbdave, what a beautiful click.
  17. What a lovely post @jillar. Hope it helps someone reach out for help and overcome their addiction. We have all benefitted from that help here in some way. I always thought I could quit anytime (for all of the 40 years I smoked) and actually never could until I joined a forum and found people 'like me' who were going through the same withdrawal process and shared their experiences which of course totally resonated. It's totally cool to share your experiences - we've all been there. I do miss a post that listed the first days and weeks of quitting in a really humorous way - yes, it was funny and was absolutely spot on.

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.
