    How it used to be

    Emptying ashtrays. I probably had five ashtrays in the house, one in the garage, and one on the deck. It seems as if I was always emptying them. I know I started a fire in the trashcan at least once. Now I find other things to do. The junkie thinking will leave you soon MLMR, come back and tell us about it when it does.
  4. We were in prison. We weren’t sure of it, but we were on death row. We had seen others killed. The rules requiring a swift and humane execution were not guaranteed. In fact, the torture of slow poison was in motion. What bugged us most was not the prison or even the death sentence, but that the punishment seemed way out of proportion to our crime. It was unfair. There had been rumors of escape, but even so, our cells were solid brick. They happened somewhere else. We had run at the walls before to no avail. If we escaped, surely we would be recaptured and our imprisonment would be made even more severe. We were comfortable in our cells. It was our choice. We heard a whisper. It was so soft we could barely hear it. “If you say NOPE and laugh in Spanish like this, jajajajaja, you can walk right through the wall to freedom for ever.” That’s crazy, feel how thick and hard these walls are – there is no way we could walk through them. We’re not strong enough. What’s on the other side anyway? Tomorrow, maybe. Finally we tried it, and it worked! We ESCAPED! The wall wasn’t solid, it was made of smoke. We passed right through it. We were free. Now we help others when they escape and are blinded by sunshine and overwhelmed by fresh air. And we whisper to those still in prison, “If you say NOPE and laugh in Spanish like this, jajajajaja, you can walk right through the wall to freedom for ever.”

  11. The fear of being without nicotine is greater than the fear of losing body parts or even life for some. I wonder if the real fear is that they can succeed in quitting smoking. I sometimes see smokers and want to tell them, "quit - don't be afraid, it won't hurt you."

    Sitting here crying wanting so bad to smoke

    You should be proud of your quit, smoking would take that away. We're proud that you come this far and truly want the best for you (hint: doesn't include smoking).

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.
