  1. Hey all. So I’m on the fifth or sixth day of my quit, and a couple of days ago I bought beer, which I never do. It’s like I’m substituting the beer for the cigarettes. It’s not good, as I’ve been engaging in day drinking. Just curious whether people have experience with substitution. Kind of being an addict more generally and needing to fill the substance-void with anything available. I want to get past this but I know if I give up beer I’ll just crave marijuana or something. When and how does the cycle end?
  2. Thanks for the welcome! I’m already learning so much and feeling so connected. I’m not excited for the journey ahead but I know it’s to save my life. Thanks again!
  3. Hey all! I’m deciding to quit smoking. My hairdresser saw my smokes and told me about her uncle who died of lung cancer due to smoking and admonished me to quit. Really helped me realize that I’m going to die from this shit. Since then I’ve read up some more and it really does look like smoking is terrible for your long-term health. So I’m stopping before anything evil can happen to my body. I set my quit date for Thursday, but after coming on this forum I’m really inspired to stop today. Smoking has been a big part of my life since the start of the summer. I smoke a pack in two days, most of it being done on the first. I quit before but then I saw a friend who had converted to vaping like me smoking again and it triggered me. Smoking is most important for those moments spent relaxing outside. It’s an excuse to sit on my deck and chill, or to take a walk etc. I know that I start to miss those moments of peace, but it’s not like I can’t have them without cigarettes. I probably just have to stay away from my normal haunts for a few months until it doesn’t trigger nostalgia. But yeah, I pretty much wake up and the cigarettes get me out of bed. I smoke a lot when I’m bored, too. Hopefully I won’t be so bored as I *God-willing* start this new job. But hello! I’ll be here often. I really want to be done with this nasty habit and just live life.

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.
