  1. Welcome @engravosaurus and congratulations on four months quit! I suffer from this post nasal drip condition that I acquired after quitting smoking. @jillar is correct. Smoking can mask allergies and so many other health issues. My doc prescribed the usual OTC allergy medication taken at night with Flonase nasal spray in the a.m. If there are any flare ups of heavy mucous, I can do a 7-10 day course of Mucinex. Also, I am always, always, always to stay hydrated because heavy mucous production can cause dehydration. So, unless you feel that the excessive mucous production is caused from something other than an allergen or you just don’t want to go through the process of identifying the allergen that may be something you can actually avoid, more than likely it is something that you are going to have to deal with. The nausea I was suffering from because of the excessive amount of mucous draining to my stomach is what drove me to an ENT. I still suffer with that from time to time. I do hope that you find relief soon. I’m at 14 months quit. My issue started around the fourth month and I was seeking answers with some relief by the 6th. Again, welcome aboard and I hope that you find all the support you need to maintain your quit!
  2. Ohhhh, @Gabes! Thank you! The Draggin’ Slayer logo is perfect! Great work! I’m trying to make it my profile pic now!
  3. Sorry that you were sick, but thankful that you recovered so quickly and soundly. I just knew that I was fixing to read that you had caved and smoked a cigarette. HaHa So glad that you are all about NOPE!
  4. WooHoo @Kris! Lido Deck in one month!!! You have done amazingly well. I realize that your quit was filled with some hard fought battles, but you survived them all! Thank you for being such a help to those who ask for it. You have been a great source of support since you first hopped onto the train!
  5. Your ‘small mind’ is awesome! I love ‘Guardians of Quitopia,’ but ‘Draggin’ Slayers’ is cool too! My vote is for Draggin’ Slayers!

  8. Hello @Octain! It’s great to hear from you! I’ve read so many of your comments over the past year and I’m happy to see that you are still quit and doing well!

  9. Alright 2021 quitters!! We need a quit name and a logo! Two names have been submitted above. Feel free to submit your own!
  10. @jillar I remember you bringing it up. Katgirl and I made proposals for the quit name, but no one else responded so it just never went anywhere. I wish that I could remember mine. I remember thinking that it was awesome, but more than likely it wasn’t. lol *I think that it was Katgirl. I may be remembering Catlovers comment above.

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.
