  1. I'd say try thinking of it this way: The time is going to pass either way so in a year you could be one year free from smoking or not.
  2. Thanks @AceWhite and @Doreensfree ! It's good to be back in good company.
  3. Thanks @intoxicated yoda and @Gus! I believe I truly am done with it this time. And I can remember vividly what it felt like to not be able to take a full breath. Quitting is so much easier when I want to and need to. Glad to be back on the train, on any deck.
  4. Cutting down didn't work for me below 10 cigarettes a day. That's not to say that it won't work for you. There's no harm in trying to cut down further. The only disadvantage I see is the prolonging of the nicotine addiction. Cutting down takes time and there is withdrawal associated, so all that time you spend cutting down you will be in withdrawal. But like I said, you do you.
  5. Hopefully there won't be a next time since I firmly believe my last cigarette is behind me now. I do pledge to use the SOS feature here if I ever get a bad craving.
  6. Update, slipped around smoking 1 or 2 cigarettes until I finally broke down and bought a pack. Smoking was hard to do breathing-wise. I felt like someone was squeezing my lungs. So I read and reread Alan Carr's The Easy Way to Stop Smoking until it finally soaked into my brain. Today I am on day 2, I have no withdrawal symptoms and a very positive attitude. Thanks to everyone here who hung in there with me when I was floundering.
  7. Way to go Sunshine! I hope to be where you are in a couple of weeks.
  8. Howdy, yes I am doing fine. I don't think I'm having too many physical cravings just mental ones. So far so good.

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.
