  1. Force yourself to discover what IS easy. There must be something. Make a game out of it. Simplify life.

  3. Hi Bjean, wow what a journey. How are you doing now? I whish you well! Not too long ago I had a small but super intense mental break down. I was with a friend who carried cigarettes. I made her promiss to keep them close in case I was going to hurt myself. I knew I wouldnt smoke, but I needed something that reminded me of a part of myself where I was able to make a healthy, concious and safe choice. Including the choice of not hurting myself physically. Ive never been tempted that evening, on the contrary: it gave me back my sense of self.
  4. Gradual decline - did that 2 or 3 times and i am pretty sure i reinforced my addiction immensly by doing that. Dont go there.
  5. Waiting to be ready is like waiting for the niagara falls to climb up instead of falling down. Never gonna happen. Take that first step, be vulnerable about it, discover, grow day by day and suddenly you will see motivation and 'readyness' peaking around the corner. Take proper care of your health Linda, no one else can do that for you.
  6. Why is it needed...? There you go.
  7. Yes, yes and yes! I do love it. When I realised how strong that craving was, my mind immediately started reciting all the downsides of smoking. Counter brainwashing. I was raised so well here ... Your humor. Please come, eat cheese and drink with me ok?
  8. Ah you are so right. Thanks for reminding me about the early stages, where this was happening all the time. Djeez, yes. Yesterday was a piece of memory cake, compared to thát.
  9. Ahhh, yes.. two friends of mine recently blew their (long term) quits. I wonder if thats got anything to do with it. Maybe taking a moment today to intently destroy any leftover romantizing.
  10. Oh, it is. Its my go-to when im having a hard time or when im in doubt about something. Will not risk that.. nope. Just didnt see that vivid memory (surprise attack) coming. Pfiew
  11. Shoot! Two years and one month in and ... blown away by a super strong sh*tty craving. I will not give in. But heck. Like... WTF!!!! How is this even possible...?!
  12. What I love about being smokefree: That beating every single sh*tty crave meant personal growth and a better, healthier future. What else could I possibly wish for?
  13. When I quit smoking two years ago, I was totally anxious and had a lurking depression. Anxiety, panick attacks, depression, they all came along in different ways, without a pattern. It scared the sh*t out of me, because Id been dealing with that for way too long already. Some periods were obviously better than others. As much as I felt that I wasnt up for the task, I knew I had to make it worthwhile somehow. I had to hold on to something that, at times, I had no vision of, no image in my mind. Because my mind was busy with fighting itself. So, clinging to that one goal AND educating

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.
