  1. Good morning, everyone. My quit anniversary came and went I just had forgotten about it. How many years now? Yet it still feel like yesterday.
  2. I'd have the EXACT same reaction as those guys! THE Waffle House, the LEGENDARY place that (almost) NEVER CLOSES, the mythical safe place! I don't know why Waffle House seems so... epic, I think that thing about the existence of a "Waffle House Index" lol
  3. Hey everyone! Out of nowhere I just thought it would be nice to say hi... I'm still going strong, playing a lot of videogames and working from home. Have a great week!
  4. I'm very much at south of everyone, I guess! I live down south in southern South America lol. I know South America usually means beautiful beaches and sunny days, but my town is known for being quite chilly. This week began with blue skies and great weather, everyone was ready to spend the weekend at the park, then by friday we had a rain storm and now it's really cold again. Everyone had to put the short shorts back in the closet and put on their old parkas LOL
  5. Just woke up, sat down at the PC with a cup of coffee, still wrapped up in my blanket (winter has been a bit eccentric this year and I just found out how comfy this blanket is) and ready to start the day. My cat wants my attention, everyone else is asleep... I have an essay to finish today, and I know I'll miss the deadline, but I'll try to do as much as I can. No reason to panic. (I'm using a clothespin to keep my blanket in place, like the cutest medieval cloak. I feel ridiculous AND cozy. No regrets.)
  6. Just realized I'm really lucky to have my little sister. Went upstairs to wake her up for coffee and I can't wait to see her try my new experiment with cocoa powder mixed in the brew. She's so fun to have around, we laugh a lot and when I can't do some part of a videogame she always gets it right on the first try. She likes my food and I like to cook for her. I'm so proud of her every day! She's smart, hard working, a great friend to everyone, full of new ideas and creativity... just the coolest kid. I'm on a new antidepressant since july and I think it's finally working. I can't believe just three weeks ago I couldn't leave my bed and now I'm just selecting the perfect morning playlist and sharpening my color pencils. Happiness feels weird.
  7. Good morning! Seems like it was last week I was so afraid of living without my nicotine crutch. Sometimes I remember how heavily I used to smoke and how I used to believe that was "a part of me" or something... It sounds somewhat silly now, TBH. I can't believe I used to think smelling weird and coughing fits were "just who I was"! It wasn't easy but it wasn't half as awful as I thought it would be. And all the money I used to (literally) burn is now becoming delicious food, great books and fun video games, so I can't see any reason to light a cig ever again. And thank you. Everyone I met during this journey is an inspiration. This community gave me hope and knowledge, and those things kept me going during the worst part of recovery. You guys are great. Really. Now let me go back to work before I get too emotional LOL
  8. Can't wait to celebrate one year smoke free! I'm already a little bit too much into bragging about my quit, so I'll probably be the most annoying person at any party ever... But I'm so proud LOL Thanks, everyone! Freedom sure is great.
  9. Congratulations, GITW! 6 months is a huge accomplishment.
  10. When dealing with triggers and cravings, begin with everyday things you can't avoid - yes, I'm talking about things like eating or sleeping, really - and keep in mind you can't avoid everything forever but you do can take it easy (easier? easy-ish?) for a while. Instead of thinking of every single situation that may (or may not) make you crave in the future, just deal with them as isolated items, just like quitting is something you do a day at a time. "I just had my lunch and I won't smoke." "I finished this assignment without a smoke break." "I just got here without having a cigarette by the door" "I went to my favorite pub and didn't leave my seat to smoke outside not even once." And so on. Thinking about every single thing you'll face for the rest of your life forever is just overwhelming and you'll probably feel miserable instead of motivated.

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.
