    Yes! I have been quit since Jan 14th. I intend on staying quit for the rest of my life. I was committed even though I was so depressed. I too think it's fun to reinvent myself. I love being able to go places and not worry about smoking. In fact, I have just begun to recognize the benifits of quitting. I would like to say that it's really not benificial for people to tell you that depression isn't real. It is a very real chemical imbalance in the brain. It stands to reason that you could have an imbalance when your comming off a drug as addictive as nicotine. I would like to thank you, Sazerac, for always being supportive and keeping me positive. I don't stay on my phone or computer a lot so I don't really check that often. I do plan on being just as supportive to others that are having a difficult time. I just had to get whole within myself before I could be positive for others.

    Today is a day of freedom! I might have some moments today but I feel like I'm beginning to normalize. So excited! I absolutely crave a normal life without nicotine. It will always make me a little crazy that my husband smokes. I hate the smell so bad. Plus it's a trigger at the same time. I'm more concerned for his heath at this point. Anyway. Congrats on 5 years. The benefits are amazing!

    Thanks Richard. Congratulations to you as well. 2 months is quite an achievement! I am finally beginning to have really good times of my day. thought I would never reach this part. The support I received from my quit buddies really helped me. I have to disagree with much of the info I've read about the quitting time table and how long it should take you to feel free of nicotine. Everyone's quit is different. I wish it had been easier for me. I seriously thought that I was doomed to have cravings all day for the rest of my life. Today, I can say, is sooooo much better than just 2 weeks ago. Look forward to your life without nicotine! Freedom is comming! !!

    You guys are awesome. I came so close to giving up today. Thank you for your encouraging words. Another day behind me. Praying for the day that I understand what it means to be free from nicotine. Hope you all had a great 4th. Stay strong!

    I'm seeing some really awesome advice here....and some tough love. Girl. I will tell you right now......I've been quit for 6 months and it would be so easy to go to the store and buy some cigs. A whole damn carton. They would still taste good to me and I would probably smoke 2 packs.....so I get it. I understand you. I don't have much support either. I live with a husband who smokes a lot. We have got to be super strong. Stay very busy. Sometimes I get so tired of staying busy because I used to enjoy my downtime with a smoke. But I understand that is how it is now. My brain has got to learn how to find happiness and satisfaction without smoking. It's takes some of us longer than others. Having a strong support system really does help. I know you can do it. I can't imagine anyone having a harder time than I do. I fight it every day. I want one rt this moment. But I'm not going to do it. I've got to give it a year. And , oh yeah, I've put on 17 lbs. I know all about the weight gain! I find that prayer helps me. I will pray for you too. Good luck! !!
  10. Thanks everyone! Now to loose the 16 lbs that i gained.

    Depression

    How am I going to get through this. When is the day gonna come that I don't obsess over a cigarette? Am I destined to be miserable? To never feel happy? I know people say that I will be happy again but I don't feel that way. I have been quit for 2 1/2 months now. I still find it hard to concentrate. It's not going to happen for me. My joy is gone. Cigarettes have ruined my life. I pray for true happiness. I wish I could be an inspiration instead of this pathetic woe is me person. I know I should be grateful. I should be free. But I'm still a slave. Why? Is there something wrong with me? Is my brain wired wrong?if all this isn't enough, I beat myself up for having a negative attitude. I'm still committed. NOPE. Prayers for better days.

    Is it still difficult sometimes?

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.
