  1. Up In Smoke


    Too far West in SC for this to effect me but we might get a little rain out of it.
  2. Hit the three week mark Sunday! Hooray for me I think...Gone from rail spikes to ten penny nails.....
  3. This has been the worst week for me and I am in my third week..First week was not all that bad neither was the second. But this week is the closest I have come to caving in since I started this.
  4. As many here know coffee and a smoke or any nicotine for that matter with coffee goes hand in hand...For me giving up my coffee in the mornings was not an option...No way Jose! But a couple weeks ago I ran into what they call Death Wish Coffee...Now you can buy this stuff in ground form or in the K Cups which is what I have....This coffee is strong! Strong enough to bring a T-Rex to it's knees! And thats pretty damn strong... I have one cup in the morning which is when the cravings seem to be the worst...And what I have found especially for me is that this stuff takes the edge off! Now, this may not work for everybody but it has for me so far....But one word of warning here do not drink this stuff at night especially before bedtime or you will be a zombie the next day!! If you would like to check it out just Google "Death Wish Coffee Co".....
  5. CanKickers! For those trying to ditch the Dip!

    Trying Times

    I recall back in elementary school my brother and I got our hides tanned for smoking! Yeah you guessed it, elementary school kids! Well we laid off the stuff for years picked it back up in high school and the race was on.....I smoked all through high school and through my days in the US Military....Smoking as such did not bother me much back then being young and running six miles a day in the military kept my stamina up pretty good.... Once I got out of the military I continued on the smoking path for about another 20 years all that money I wished I had back...Of course back then cigs were only like $1.75 a pack high for the time but not nearly what they cost now...Then my brother, who has since passed God rest his soul got me on the Dip craze as he like me was a smoker....I avoided the Dip for a while but then took his lead and gave it try and from there the rest is history...I continued to Dip for about another 10 years or so but one visit to an ENT doctor changed the only complexion.. It's funny how all it takes is a doctor giving you the long face to change your attitude. And makes you see just how fragile life can be....
  7. NODE - Not One Dip Ever! Day 15.. Death Wish Coffee knocks off the edge.
  8. Yeah my doctor prescribed something for me for the anxiety when I told him I was quitting.
  9. So thats what I am going through...Is there even such a thing?
  10. Hip hip hooray! Two weeks tomorrow! Cannot believe I have gotten this far.....Not been easy though....

      Yea, I know. Somedays for me were so bad I just went to bed hoping tomorrow would be a little better and it almost always was. You're halfway through the hardest month of them all, you got this 😊

      No, it's not easy but you are finding the strength from within yourself and that's what will get you there

      You are doing great up in smoke. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and you'll be on the other side before you know it 😊

      I forgot to find more railroad spikes for you !


      Soon, you will not have nicotine on your mind.


      if you concentrate on replacing nicotine thoughts with any other thoughts,

      this process will go quicker.


      You quit !  Congratulations !

  12. Don't let it bother you.....I am on day 6, a week tomorrow never made it this far....Just reaffirm and start over.
  13. Creeping up on 5 days tomorrow I don't think I am going to make it....Got to find something to keep me busy, what? Hmmmm...may start me a forum on something....anything.

      Yeah I saw those but nothing I am interested in thanks.

      start your own thread in something you are interested in.


      you will only fail yourself and this quit if you choose to do so.

      and there is no good reason to fail.  not one.

      Yes, that 1st week is hell! In fact, the whole 1st month is hell...but it gets easier if you think of it as one day at a time and keep moving forward. I did a lot of deep breathing, drinking water and eating twizzlers and going to sleep super early to get through the tough times. When the days start adding up....it became more real and motivating. Do you really want to lose how far you have come????


      PS I had 2 previous quits spaced about 25 years apart and lost both of them for silly reasons...I will  not make that mistake with this one!!!   

  14. 4 frigging days now and those railroad spikes are looking delicious...
  15. Three Days Dip Free....A long face from the doctor is making sure I stay that way...🤬

    1. jillar


      A few more days and you're done with hell week. The hardest week of them all 😊 

  16. Well the Devil better not get in my way or I will punch his ass OUT! Wife is already wishing I would go get a can...LoL...

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.
