  1. The last paragraph is exactly why I'm here @Sazerac I promise you that. I will go and read the link now
  2. I hear what you're saying and I do get it but if I did it right now I would feel I wasnt making the choice. I know that probably sounds like the words of a full blown addict but it's not. I was diagnosed with OCD a couple of years ago and having a plan is essential for me.
  3. I'm still smoking @Doreensfree which is why I came here today. I thought it would be easy to quit again but it's harder than it was before. I am going to read and set my quit window. I can't just stop as I need a plan in my head. My window is quit by 01 July.
  4. @Mac#23 thank you. You are doing great and have the attitude I'm working on getting
  5. Looking back I think you're spot on @reciprocity I didn't really quit I just abstained. That is something I need to think about more and try and work out why I did that
  6. Hi @Doreensfree I did get angry but that was the addict in me not wanting to hear the truth. Back to basics sounds like a good plan
  7. I'm really saddened to read this @jillar I knew you had asthma but I never expected to hear that.
  8. Thank you Thanks @Mona Yes I am looking for encouragement to quit and when I do I will want people to to tell me how great I'm doing and why I should be happy I've quit. I thought that was the whole purpose of the board ie to keep us all going. Just for the record I'm definately not depressed. I was looking for tips rather than a character assassination
  9. Hi Everyone. I'm here today to ask for some help. I was a constant relapser on the forum and then managed to hit my one year. Not long after that I threw away my quit and went back to smoking. I know why I relapsed. It's because I genuinely believe I love smoking. I know in my heart that's not true but it's the one part of nicotine addiction I can't seem to overcome. That is why for the whole year I never really celebrated because deep down I knew it was only a matter of time. There are so many benefits to being a non smoker and I regret lighting that first cigarette. I know it's REALLY hard to find the stamina to keep encouraging someone like me. It's draining to keep saying "you got this" only to find days/weeks/months down the line they let you down ......again. I'm feeling regretful that I threw my quit away but instead of using that feeling to quit I'm using it to keep smoking. I don't even know what I'm asking from you. Maybe to stroke my brow and tell me it's all going to be ok, or maybe I need to hear some real home truths and tough love. People in my life tell me how wonderful I am for going a year. They don't see my failure they just see that achievement and so I'm not getting the encouragement I need to quit. Sorry for the long ramble but just needed to come here and get that all out
  10. Thank you @greenlight
  11. Jeff really sorry to read this. There is really only one reason why you're failing and that's because you want to smoke more than you want to quit. Look around at all the success stories on this thread and you'll find the one thing they all have in common is their passion about being non smokers. We all know how to quit - we just stop buying and smoking cigarettes. You will do it

    See Ya Later

    This is sad news but completely understandable. I've always found you such a kind and wise influence around the forum. You treat everyone equally, listen without judgement and encourage everyone to keep trying. You have all the qualities to make a wonderful father to your little girl You will be missed ❤
  13. Cheering you on from the sidelines @Nana20
  14. Thank you @Jenny I will be sure to shout for help when I need it. Just trying to get off the start line at the moment
  15. Congratulations @JohnQ on 5 wonderful days. Will be following your trail very soon

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.
