  1. I am a two-pack-a-day smoker and I am ready to leave this horrible habit behind. I am spending so much money and I am destroying my body by smoking so much. I am disabled and effectively stay home all the time, which led to my habit. I am tired of spending all my life moments revolving around a cigarette. As you can imagine, smoking two packs a day literally everything is punctuated with a cigarette. I yearn for the days when I smoked one an hour, but I cant seem to cut down, so I am here to quit for good~! As a 50-year-old woman, I have tried to quit before. My mother and I share a home and she is currently going through chemo for lung cancer from smoking. My grandmother also died from emphysema and lung cancer, so my chances of dying the same way are high, even if I do quit. I broke my humerus in December and the doctor told me I was at risk for surgery -- that I wouldn't be able to heal naturally -- because nicotine is a vasodilator and interferes with bone growth. Well, 14 weeks in and I am still not healed and now surgery anytime soon is out of the question. My doctor cancelled my appointment this Monday and set it out a month, which is fine really, since I am healing slowly anyway and the orthopedic cant do much now but let it try to heal. I would like to avoid surgery! I've quit successfully before using the gum. I started smoking again after a month off because I was "bored". I don't want to try meds or anything else. I need some help setting a quit day and coming up with a plan for the first couple of days. I plan to use the gum as an emergency standby, not as a substitute since the nicotine in the gum is also a vasodilator. I just need to quit and be done with this bad habit for good. Please help me set myself up for success.

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.
