  1. Just popping in to say I still on the quit train. Guess I at about the 9 month mark now. I can see why people encouraged to make a one year commitment to being on the train here. You may think you doing good (and if you on the quit train you ARE) but getting through the holidays is a challenge and though all the moments of life a year can send your way If you lurking and thinking on it....you can do this...absolutely a 100% you can do this. I hope you do and chose something good for yourself. You do deserve it! And all those on the train I hope you have a beautiful peaceful New Year. Thank you for your shared stories that helped/help me and so many others!
  2. Day 139 (I think) Still on the quit train. After literally a 3 month wait....should still be waiting another 2 weeks but they had a cancellation last week I finally got to see the oral surgeon and get these wisdom teeth plus 2 others pulled. Been a rather painful week. Am so thankful I finally got in. 3 months when you hurting a long time to hurt. Been a bit since I have been here. Just stopping in to say I still on the train and hanging in there and yay Ibuprofen my friend!
  3. My sense of smell it was amazing the difference (both good and bad smells lol) I can clock another smoker at a 100 paces now lol 2 of my kids came to visit a few weeks ago, they both commented I no longer "smell like smoke" I always smoked outside so here I thought I was avoiding that....wrong!
  4. It the same here in central GA Kate suddenly we have spiked. Last week the hospital had 5 covid patients and now just days later the hospital is in red alert. My brother works at a clinic (where they do a lot of the testing for this area) the positive cases they getting are both vaccinated and non-vaccinated equally. My nephew (who lives in a different state) just got diagnosed with covid he too is vaccinated. I think it helps keep it less severe but it not stopping people from getting the newest variants.
  5. This is a good thread...bump! Wheezing at night that I blamed on allergies....it was not allergies!
  6. Day 109 Frustrated this last week. Had a problem Friday that just kept compounding more and more problems. Had a moment (a sarcastic one) where I thought gee I so glad I do not smoke now!!...followed by staring blankly into space. I really wanted a cig...there have been a few times this week I have really wanted one.... but I rather stubborn by nature and I not willing to give up 109 days for something that is only going to make me feel less than proud of myself and will do nothing for me...nothing good...so I going to keep choosing this quit and adding more days to it.....admittedly some days more challenging than others and we have a choice
  7. A treadmill is not in my budget. I will just do online exercises and fit in walking when it cool enough to do so. I am very disappointed.
  8. Frustrated Was almost done with my walk when I was informed the place I go to walk.... to stay out of the heat and for better safety than what my neighborhood has...is not allowing walkers now because of covid!
  9. Will have to save the video to watch later (looks interesting) but did note this comment under the video "I do a financial fasting diet, when i eat on pay week and fast when I'm out of cash, the day before pay day is a killer" LOL sometimes it all in the comments!
  10. Coming here the way to go. You doing good even if it does not feel good right now (if you know what I mean) It does get better. Those first few weeks ugh...keep busy...keep yourself distracted and keep in mind you just have to make it through today. Just today. Take each day one at a time.
  11. I with Boo and others here I found exercising is a great substitute. A bonus of my new found passion. My 83 year old mother also became motivated and started walking and doing exercises in her walker chair. There many Youtube channels to help in that. Came across this article on the subject https://www.newdirectionsforwomen.org/substituting-one-addiction-for-another/ and this https://www.mydomaine.com/hobby-ideas Google "hobbies to keep you busy" or "things to do while in isolation" lots of things came up that way. Heck I found things that interested me just looking for you lol
  12. Hi IamMommaBear! I smoked for 40 years and quit cold turkey too. The first weeks are hard but so doable. All of us here are proof of that. What helped me was staying close to this forum (even if I did not post or comment) I found real help in educating myself with the videos and different forums and posts. I found encouragement by reading other peoples journeys. Personally I found mantra's help, just saying them out loud over and over whenever the urge hits, I made post it notes of sayings I liked here and stuck them over the computer and back door where I use to slip out of to go for a smoke. Fast short walks were a great. Keeping distracted helps too, There games here, videos and ways to socialize. Welcome abroad the train what a great wonderful thing you doing for yourself. Be proud of the 1 week, 1 hour and 20 min's we all understand how awesome that is!

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.
