  1. Here's one, I just got back this week from a week long cruise. I didn't realize or pay attention to just how many people actually smoked before. My spouse still smokes so I went up to the smoking side one afternoon. I couldn't get over the smell that was up there. I found myself feeling like you Jim. I ended up telling her I didn't belong there any longer and left. I left feeling like a snob but I couldn't help it. I pray I never fall because I saw so much self destruction that week ,  and I honestly don't remember noticing that or smelling that much smoke. I actually found myself struggling to breathe at times. I like this so much better, let's never fail.

  2. Was it not just part of the times though? I mean where I grew up it was smoking cigarettes, drinking, and just generally being Johnny bad ass. And in my case I started driving trucks in the oil field's and smoked to stay awake all night. I mean... were we really duped? My  mom and dad smoked and I don't know why, but I was the only one out of 4 that picked up the nasty habit. I wish I never would have but it is what it is. I only have myself to blame, I do wish I could lay it on someone else but I have to suck it up. All we can do is move forward and try to make the best of our situation now.

  4. Not breathing or struggling too is a horrible feeling. After smoking close to 40 years it’s a wonder I can breathe at all. Our bodies must be tougher than we give it credit for. I hope they get you taken care of sooner than later. I just didn’t think it made any sense that you could quit smoking and breathe worse than what did while smoking.  I think that is one reason it’s been somewhat difficult for me of late. Best wishes Abby.

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.
