  1. Thank you for being here today. NOPE! Not one puff ever!
  2. Thank you. I need to make the NOPE pledge daily.
  3. Rolling into day 3! NOPE NOPE NOPE!
  4. I am going for another attempt at NOPE today.
  5. (((Thank you @jillar))). You are so right. I know I will be back soon (probably tomorrow) saying those very same words, “ugh, I want a smoke.” I actually hope I come back often with those words instead of loosing my quit. I truly need and want the support.
  6. Hi @Kate18 I have smoked on and off (mostly on) for 50+ years. Thank you for sharing. I truly have some very good reasons to keep the quit. I have my ‘why’ I just need to not let the monster get in the way. I quit for a while and he shows back up and I start all over again. I just need to learn that everything is going to be ok (life) and to work and understand my anxiety. And to recognize my weaknesses so I can put myself in a better position before I stupidly even think that I can light up just once. Of all people, I really really should know this by now. Blast those cigarettes!! They will fool ya every single time!!
  7. Fear and anxiety got the better of me today. I could feel myself spiral and I could not get passed it. There was something I needed to take care of and it was not a comfortable experience or feeling. That coupled with day 2 pangs and I lost it. Tonight I am ok. I only know to try again.
  8. I did not make it through day 2. Unfortunately I smoked 2 cigarettes today. I have zero excuses. I am here and ready to try again. Thank you for being here for me. That’s all I know to say right now.
  9. Day 2 for me. Good to see somebody else here who is in the early stages of not smoking. Goofygal, keep going! I am right behind you. NOPE to this day.
  10. If I smoke today then I will have to start my 24 hours all over again.
  11. For the most part I’ m ok right now. I’m ok because for the rest of the evening I will be with family and it would be close to impossible to smoke. So I am grateful for family time on Sunday afternoon to keep from smoking. Thank you.
  12. About posting to the NOPE board, I couldn’t do it. Seems like I need more nicotine free days and need to search real hard inside myself before I just free willie make this strong commitment.
  13. Ok, just because I am thinking about smoking doesn’t mean I want to act on it. Well, I kind of do. It would so darn easy to find an excuse to slip off and buy some. No matter how many times I have been in this very same scenario it’s still equally as difficult. So I am past the first 24 hours….again. I am not trying to squash my cigarette thoughts because that would make it worse. I am merely trying to ride it out. Maybe time to go to the NOPE page. That’s all for now.

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.
