  1. @Doreensfree Yes, I am ready to stop smoking again! When I'm quit, all I do is think about staying quit. When I'm smoking, all I think about is quitting. I thought I could just forget about it, but I can't. I stopped seven times last year alone. I guess I'm headed for the same fate this year. @AngeleekThanks, I think I know what you are saying. Maybe not? I did not smoke for a total of 121 days last year. Even if I couldn't quit completely, I helped myself a little bit. @reciprocity Your correct, I used the wrong word. I threw it away! @bakon Yes it was nasty, reminded me of h
  2. I lost my quit yesterday, Easter Sunday. I sabotaged it myself. I waited the 24 hrs. before smoking, but I didn't come here and post an SOS. I had submitted an SOS just a little ways back and I went back and read all those great responses. I guess I didn't want to be talked out of it. Again, just like all the other attempts, I never fully committed. I just didn't smoke. Without that commitment my whole quit was harder than it needed to be and ended in failure. No excuses, I made the choice to smoke! I want to thank everyone here for your support and encouragement over these pa
  3. I'm sorry that you have not been able to quit again! You quit before for a long time! You said that you needed to find a reason to quit. Didn't you have reasons for quitting before? Aren't those reasons as valid now as they were before? I'll try to give you a few that might mean something to you. There are lots of other reasons to quit, but non as important as these! Smoking kills, on average, 1,200 Americans. Every day. More people die every year from smoking than from murder, AIDS, suicide, drugs, car crashes, and alcohol, Combined. Smoking caus
  4. The struggle, at times is almost too real! If I didn't have all these health problems, I would not be putting myself through this quit process. I would still be smoking just like I have been for the past 50 years. But I have found that all those cigarettes I smoked were just a slow form of suicide. I can't go back and undo the damage I've done to myself! I look at it like this. I have two choices, I can just keep smoking and not have to struggle with quitting, or I can try to make it through this quit process and maybe live a little longer. The only thing that keeps me h
  5. I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble right now! I understand! Last week I felt the same way. I also said that if I lost my quit I would not try again. That was a stupid thing for me to say, but at the time I said it, I meant it! I'm sure you mean it also. I am going to tell you what you told me. "You have come so far to give up now, and I can't afford to lose another quit partner." I could be wrong, but you and I are all that is left of the people who quit when we did. I have also seen a least 20 people, in the last three months, come here and say they are quitting,
  6. Thanks Everyone! I don't think I could have stayed smoke free this long without you! I can't lie, I'm still having some problems. But I am trying to work my way through them.
  7. I never have drank coffee, but my wife makes a pot every morning and I love the smell of it! I am retired, but my wife still works. So I am alone a lot. I mostly only have my own negativity to deal with. I would try to stay away from negative people, if you can, while you are early in your quit. At some point you will have to learn how not to get caught up in it. Negativity seems to be in all our lives from time to time. Your Doing a Great Job of Quitting Smoking!!
  8. Welcome to the Train! You will find everything you need here to help you on your journey to being an ex-smoker. Talk to the people here! Unless the people you said you couldn't talk to are ex-smokers, they really won't understand anyway. It's not their fault, they just haven't been where your at. What Mee said is right. It is normal for us to feel sad because we think we have lost our best friend. Congratulations on the nine days quit! That's Great!
  9. @Boo You are correct! I should not have used the word fate. I used it as an excuse. I don't buy into that way of thinking about most things, so I shouldn't have used it here either. I'll try to think of a better word, or better way of saying it. Thanks!
  10. I am Back, and I am still not smoking! I didn't want to post on here early in the day because I wanted to be sure I did not smoke today. Now my window is closed, in order to smoke I would have to go through the same process again. Thank everyone of you for your support. I really appreciate it. This fight is far from over, and this could happen again. I'm still shaky and my mind is still wondering in different directions at different times. These three things saved me from going back to smoking. 1) Posting this SOS and waiting for responses. 2) As part of my quit p
  11. This is not an urgent SOS. I am not going to smoke today! I am writing this because I promised myself that I would post an SOS here before I gave up. I also promised myself that I would not smoke for 24 hrs. after deciding that I was going to. I am worn out from working everyday on not smoking. I mean I am bone tired of never doing anything but concentrating on not smoking. As I've said before, I've never quit smoking, only stopped for different lengths of time. I want to Thank all of you for your support! Your a great group of people with much knowledge on quitting smok
  12. @Steven Drojensky Sorry to be Congratulating you late on your One Month Quit! That's is Great! I hope you are doing well and I wish you luck in continuing with your quit!
  13. Welcome Back! I'm sure you will be able to quit again! I agree with Mee, your mother probably knows you are smoking. My father was a cigar smoker and I could smell it everywhere. It seems like cigar smoke is stronger than cigarette smoke. Good Luck!
  14. @Linda I am sorry that life is throwing you some curves right now. I hope that things will be better for you soon. You've got a lot of time and effort invested in your quit. Please don't throw it away. You already feel bad about your life situation, and if you give up your quit you will only feel worse. I need you to hang in here with me! We are about all that is left of the people who quit when we did! Smile if you can! Jeff
  15. @Lilley Welcome Back! I hope you can make this your sticky quit! You know, the one that lasts forever!

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.
