  1. Thank you, Doreen! Also, I am planning my wedding! Getting married on 10/7! I’ve never had a fancy wedding, so this time I am doing it up! Planning is a PITA, but My Matron of Honor is sharing the load. Today, I have my first gown fitting. Exciting stuff. Of course, I am marrying the guy I met on Christmas Day, 2018. John is a keeper. The whole thing seems meant to be. I decided I did not want to meet my Maker, having been living in sin for the last part of my life, so I told John that, and he proposed on Valentine’s Day. Kat

    Long day ahead
  3. Keep up the good work, @Slow progress! The first few days are the hardest. I celebrated 2 years yesterday. That’s hard to believe. I had a chest x-ray recently, and the results were pretty normal, except my lungs were “slightly hyper inflated”. I asked my doctor what that meant. He said it means I have mild COPD. I wonder how that happened….. Knowing that, just reinforces my commitment to keep my quit intact. Staying close to this group has been very instrumental in my success so far, so stick around. Kat

    Vastly exaggerated story
  6. Don’t believe 1/2 of what you read or even see on the news. A lot of it is crap! I have 4 kids (and I only have 4), who are election deniers. They think their Mom is stupid! I invited them to my wedding, anyway. As for Covid, it confuses me that everyone is pretending it’s over. As far as I know, it’s not. It just killed my best friend’s Dad. Having said that, he was 95. We all need to stay safe, but don’t drink the Kool Aid! Nurse Kat
  7. Hah! Why didn’t I think of that? Oh, I know. You have to smoke it……, so a no go, for me. Still doing my 2 miles , on my treadmill. am up to a 6% incline. By the time I’m done power-walking, at 3.5 mi/ hr, sweat is dripping into my eyes, and down my face, and I have burned approximately 350 calories, in under 40 minutes. A few weeks back, John and I were traveling on a road, that had a sign showing we were at a 6% upward grade. It was noticeable. Seeing that incline, made me realize how awesome I am, to be able to do that every day..,,,. Kat
  8. There is so much conflicting info. Our president announced the Pandemic is over, but I don’t think that’s an accurate statement. About the vaccines, I’m not sure if Australia’s are the same, as ours, but I do know of anecdotal evidence that some folks had adverse reactions, here, and I’m sure there were some deaths. As far as I know, very few, however. I have had a total of 4 vaccines, and still got Covid, though a very mild case. The WHO has announced they expect Pandemic to end, sometime this year. However, it will probably be endemic, at that point, meaning it will always be with us. The US is talking about a yearly vaccine that will be combined with our annual flu shot. Nurse Kat

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.
