  3. @Gus It's frustrating when something is out of our control BUT we can control how we react to it. What will be, will be. Life has a funny old way of sorting it self out. Now is not the time to over think or stress. Just keep praying, look after yourself, and then let it go.

  5. Surely favorites or not, they all have special different, aspects to their souls and personalities?

    Rightly or wrongly.
  7. Thank you @Gus even though we are miles apart, you were such a caring friend. Thank you xx Keep it going
  8. Hello beautiful souls. As some of you may know I had a 12 year quit and relapsed a few months ago. Ive got bipolar2 and I was in a manic state. If you know anything about this disorder in the very high state you are not "you". You behave recklessly and you have a devil may care attitude. It's not fun at all. I had never experienced this before. From my first puff it didn't take long to be back to a packet a day. I couldn't believe this was happening. I was a staunch anti smoking activist! After three stop starts and feeling beyond frustrated I joined the Quit Train, and was met with complete love, non judgement and encouragement. I still couldn't do it on my own and reached out for professional help. In that time I learned so much about myself and it gave me time to set a very serious quit date which was the 5th of May. It wasn't easy. About a week in I started "coming down", I struggled with depression, and I had to double up my mood stabilizer. Shortly there after I experienced physical and mental burn out. The fact that I had a severe sinus infection didn't help. Quite often I would just log on here to read posts, send encouragement or play the games to keep my mind off things. Today it's a month and I feel heaps better. Despite a rough ride, it never occurred to me that smoking might be a solution. I feel free again. I feel alive. I'm in control of my health. I had to dig deep but it's been worth it. I continue to work on my inner child issues to have a better life. Not only for me, but for my family too. If you have read this far, thank you. If you are considering quitting, I can assure you it's a beautiful gift of love you give yourself and there are special caring members here who will give you all the support you need. I see you. You are valid. Your life counts. Namaste. Have a blessed day xox

  10. So scary. When I think of all the years I did this to myself, I feel so sad. Sorry body. Sorry lungs.

    A hacker got into my personal website and I'm absolutely devastated.
  12. Couldn't we just rather air the dirty laundry the way @Mac#23 suggested?
  13. And happy quit anniversary.
  14. @breath It was after many years of being quit that you were diagnosed and you quit relatively young, I'm shocked that you were diagnosed with COPD. I assumed (wrongly) that it would be a much older person, smoking for way longer, whose lungs would be compromised to that degree. How long after quitting do the lungs return to normal? I've heard the figure of 10 years being bandied around but who knows? @jillar Thank you for the info xx

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.
