  1. Thankyou Johnny5 for the celebration post! Its a fantastic feeling reaching 4 years. Only seems like yesterday, times gone so fast and i can remember that day so clearly when i said I'M DONE and i just knew that i really meant it. It was the right time. I was well & truly done with the shit. I will be forever grateful to QSMB for the fantastic support i recieved from day 1.... They changed my mindset & kept me strong. Addicts helping addicts.....Way to go!!!!!!! When we,re in the grip of the addiction, we are sooo in denial. I see it so clearly now when im with smokers....almost like my smoke has cleared & i can see properly at last. & I realise how much i justified it to myself grrrrr! Feel like a complete mug for having allowed it to go on so long...32 years to be precise.Throwing all that hard earned money at Big tobacco. Being slowly strangled by the evil Nicodemon. I was 47 when i quit . The maddest thing is that I actually quit because I was sick of wasting so much money... That was my inspiration.........I was completely in denial at the time that the circulation problems i had were down to the smoking.I my ankles were purple & swollen , i had terrible aching legs, yet i was blind to it . Thank god i quit when i did, who knows what id be like now. We forget that the damage caused by smoking for so long cant be reversed overnight.... Its a slow gradual process of repair . After about 6 months i joined a gym and started Circuit training 3 times a week and Boxercise. This sort of exercise would have horrified me before i quit but it became my new hobby & very gradually i noticed improvements in my health. After about a year of quitting my legs no longer ached all the time ....that was phenomenal to me! As it stands now I can wear shorts & dresses again... my ankles are back to normal . I can keep up with people in their 20s at Circuit training.!!!! Not forgetting all the other benefits of quitting....Skin, Teeth, Smell,Taste the list is endless. I love my life without smoking. Take smoking off the table....Smoking is NOT an option. N.O.P.E
  2. I quit almost 4 years ago & qsmb was a massive part of my quit .in the last couple of years I would occasionally go & read on there to keep my quit strong. ..until I discovered it was no more...... glad to see such a happy merging of the 2 sites!!! Hi to anyone who remembers me & every one whose never heard of me too!!!

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.
