  1. @notsmokinjo I can't quote on my cell phone but what you said about getting sick and not giving in to going back to smoking says a lot. I always was so ashamed that I smoked through breast cancer. I would run in for my 15 min. radiation and then leave and light up. Looking back it was kind of defeating the purpose. That was not enough to scare me off cigarettes. I am not looking back. I am only going forward with the hopes of gaining as much life as I can.
  2. @Rozuki I am so sorry about your friend. Hearing stories like this always make me wonder if I will get my life back or still suffer from the effects of smoking so long. I do hope your nephew can follow your lead.
  3. Wansit, we are making it better. We are quitting. How awesome is that. I never thought I had that power within me. Hopefully we show others the way to freedom!
  4. Okay Reci, you just had to show me that gif . I remember it being so beautiful, with the mountains surrounding the little town. I don't think there will be a way around the mountains. Just going to have to bite the bullet. This is on my bucket list!
  5. Is the permit so they can keep watch on you if you don't return on time? Be safe - no daredevil moves or selfies on the edges. It is beautiful there. I have seen a lot of the mountains in the US and Canada. My dream trip is to take my husband to Banff, Alberta . From what I remember, as a child, there weren't any guardrails on the edges of the roads. My mother white knuckled it the whole trip. We would have to come up with ways to keep me distracted on the drive.
  6. When we were young, they made smoking look so appealing. All the movie stars smoked and romanticized it. I am ashamed of my foolishness. I am hoping we can teach the younger generations.
  7. It is a little better. As long as I take the anti inflammatory and an occasional pain pill, I am mustering through. We have been packing all week so we did not overdo it at once. My husband is doing the lifting. We leave tomorrow morning. We are meeting up with my grand daughter at college, so grandma had to make a special meal to feed the starving college students. She has quite a few starving friends. Then we are off to a week of just relaxing and camping. I do have an appointment with an orthopedic doctor when we get home. I am just hoping it will continue getting better. It is hell getting old!
  8. Hey Potts, you are doing great. You definitely do not want to blow it. I am so glad you posted your sos. Just breath deep and be proud you have finally been able to quit.
  9. No chocolate for me. I am a jelly bean addict - pink and purple are my favorite. I am being good though because I need to shed some of this extra weight.
  10. This is an interesting article about how tobacco companies are realizing people are quitting smoking and they need to hook people another way. Philip Morris needs to kill smoking to survive ://a.msn.com/00/en-us/BBW2w7D?ocid=se
  11. I feel your pain. Just looking at you picture sends shivers down my spine. Not my favorite experience in life.
  12. Jo, patience must be one of your virtues. 5 hours a day getting to and from work seems like such a waste. Do you have to put in an 8 hour day?

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.
