    Post One Year Cravings

    It's not unusual. I still remember cravings hitting me periodically, but in waves, after a year. At airports of all places. The big picture is that the cravings will continue to grow weaker and less frequent. However this might be a good time to review the reasons you quit to begin with. Write the reasons down on a piece of paper and keep the list with you at all times. Revisit the Newbie Package and Joel's pages, and read and remember. Revisit any practices that helped you early on. Your resolve will become even stronger and the cravings will continue to weaken and become less frequent. Hang in there!! You've beat this thing and all you need to do is remain vigilant!

    The holidays

    You can do this! I quit just 3 weeks before a Thanksgiving holiday, and just 7 weeks before Christmas, and looking back I wouldn't have done it any other way. The confidence you've earned from being free of your addiction is a treasure, and sharing that joy wtih all of the folks coming to visit will make you feel great. Enjoy everyone's company and quirks and let them pull whatever S&*& they want - stay enveloped in your happiness in being free

    JOD is 8 years smoke free

    Sometimes I have to almost pinch myself to believe that I'm free after more than 30 years of addiction. But NOPE and the comraderie of supportive folks made the difference for me. With gratitude to all, I think this is my favorite day of the year! My celebration today has been quiet, confident, and joyful. Thank you! Jim

    Why N.O.P.E is a must!

    The law of addiction is very, very real, that's why! "Administration of a drug to an addict will cause re-establishment of chemical dependence upon the addictive substance." https://whyquit.com/pr/072907.html Jim
  11. Simply, after 35 years of smoking, I came to the place where I decided that I would no longer be a participating slave to the addiction. I looked at it as a battle that I had to win. And with help from a great bunch of warriors (some of whom are now here) and Joel's writings, I fought the demon and beat the SOB 😘 Freedom is so worth it!!!! Jim

    In Memory Of Beth (Queen Greenlover)

    Greenlover (I called her GL) was a straight talking warrior who I was proud to call a friend. She was at her most generous best when in 1:1 conversations off-line, and at her most ferocious best when getting crossed on the QSMB 😉 I deeply cherish her memory, and her steadfast opinionated self, still.

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.
