  1. Love this! Nice to have those happy starts! Song song song sing! Sing sing siiiiiing song LOL
  2. Yes, Jim! Whereas I'd tried and failed in the past, watching mom die of COPD and congestive heart failure motivated me to get serious about quitting. It's so encouraging to know that the idea of smoking is barely a memory anymore for you. Congratulations on making and sticking to your commitment to never take another puff! Joel Spitzer's words. Can't say it any better myself! Hurray and awesome for you! Good health.
  3. Quitting smoking can be a real drag and seriously depressing. Whoever feels the need to unpack about it here is in the right place because that is what this forum is all about. Not everyone enjoys the struggle...haha indeed most do not. Some of us try to psyche ourselves into being positive about it but, truth is, deactivating an addiction feels like crap.

  4. Great job Dogbelly! Remember a ciggie is never a reward! You got this!
  5. Welcome, Ace! Congratulations on quitting again and getting through hell week! This is a great forum with lots of info and great people...and all the Joel Spitzer videos are here if you need a little reality pep-talk. Glad to have you! Keep the quit! Your lungs will thank you!

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.
