  1. Hello all, since I have been documenting my quit on here, I had my first opportunity to smoke this morning! I am working from home today and while I am working I started a load of laundry. As you might guess I found almost a half a pack of cigarettes in a pocket. I had the Marlboro man staring me in the face. He ended up in the trash. Lets say kind of ceremonial thing if you will. So I had to do something. I made me a green shake. It was kind of hard to light, but I did get through that. Nothing like a bunch of spinach, yogurt and fruit instead of a cig eh? lol I really know how t
  2. oh you would not believe the rituals I would go through to smoke. At work I would walk to my vehicle (which was in the next over parking lot, as no smoking on any part of the property where I work). Then I would put on the smoking sweatshirt, cause of course I would smell of smoke. Mints, maybe a spray of some smell stuff, and good to go. Pre-Covid, I may be in a smaller conference room or something with four or five people and the last thing I wanted was to smell of smoke. I am non-essential and can work from home so that made it pretty easy to smoke now......which is not a good thing either.
  3. Still doing good today, but I have been quite busy which helps. I am wondering how much time I spent smoking. It didn't seem like much while doing it. So I am changing my routine by not smoking and damn I have all this time. So apparently I was wasting a lot of time as I am a good time waster. For right now, the only time I think about smoking are the times I usually did it. Other than that, I really don't or haven't yet really wanted one. An example being, at 8AM I always went outside. So, of course I thought about a cigarette at 8AM. I just kept working and soon forgot. Anyway, I will quit a
  4. Thanks to all for the encouragement! I actually am using this board already as when i would normally sneak out to smoke here at work I have just came here and read the comments. The funny thing about smoking where I work, one has to walk off the campus. I can get up and go when I want, and there is a really nice park, so taking a short little walk works instead of smoking. Mee - I did have a really nice dog for a number of years, and has now passed. He did like his belly rubbed. Ok, cheers everyone. j
  5. Hi, oh thanks for the tip. I did not know that a three month prescription is best. I hope I get some good dreams! Been pretty good so far, but I know I will have my moments where it wont be so easy. One of the best things I have going is I am almost never around smokers. Also keeping busy at work. I am knee deep in a Excell spreadsheet (which is so much fun, it was always a great excuse to smoke instead), but I took a walk around the buildings instead of smoking. Anyway, onward and upward.
  6. Hi, at 12:30 PM today I have gone 24 hours without smoking. It's actually been not that bad. This isn't my first attempt, and I have had success before. My problem is after I have not smoked for long periods of time, I think I can indulge myself and have just one. Then it is all downhill from there. So this time, note to self, I can never, never just have one. I need to stop completely. I am pretty active and never really felt the bad effects of smoking. Lately, if in high altitudes I have noticed a little difference in my breathing. did not keep me from what I was doing, but it w

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.
