  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day. Corned beef and cabbage on Saturday.
  2. My best smoking dream came at about three months. Someone in my dream asked me for a cigarette, "I don't have any, I don't smoke anymore". My subconscious was giving me some truth to accept. I was really happy about this dream after I woke up.

    Eight's great Jimmy!
  4. I had to be honest with myself and realize that I was a nicotine addict and I couldn't have any more of it. The phrase I used was, "Smoking is not an option". A lot of smokers deep down fear that they will be successful at quitting and they fear that will never smoke again. That's what frightens you? It's hard to change but it's doable and so worth it.
  5. You made a great decision to quit and to join this forum. You've made it past the worst days of quitting. Your body will need time to adjust itself to not being given a steady diet of toxins. The good news is that our bodies are remarkable in their ability to heal from the abuse. There is plenty to read on this site to help you and plenty of people willing to help you along.
  6. One year ago you made a great decision and today you get to celebrate it! Congratulations! We are so happy to see you quit for one year!
  7. Merry Christmas! Looking forward to a new year!
  8. Congratulations on three years! Good job done and dusted!
  9. But wait, there's more! This offer will save you COLD HARD CASH! That money you waste buying cigarettes will stay in your pocket and it adds up fast!
  10. Your stress and your addiction are not connected, you are only using one to excuse the other.
  11. This year Sazerac suggested that instead of thinking about a cigarette, quitters should look for: Beauty. That light on that leaf, a color, a beautiful cloud here for a moment, the face of a loved one, a special picture or painting, listening to a song that you love, reading a favorite poem or passage in a book. You know your own beauty and how to find it. Use this to your advantage. Beauty is all around us and it only takes a little focus for the happy endorphins to rush around. This is good advice for all
  12. I think you're getting the hang of this quitting thing!
  13. Don't be afraid. You will be able to use the first two weeks as motivation to stay quit. Lean on the forum when you need strength.
  14. Most smokers are afraid that they will succeed in quitting cigarettes. They hate the thought of change. It's scary to do something you haven't done for years. So my advice is - don't be afraid. The nicotine addiction can be overcome, quitting won't kill you. Will you be uncomfortable - yes, but your attitude and understanding will help make it less so. Your body can heal from the damage smoking has done to it. Believe the people here when we try to help you succeed.
  15. You have quit smoking but your brain is having trouble accepting that fact. It is like the final stage of grieving, you will feel better when you know that you are done with cigarettes. The day this happens will be like magic. You must keep going. Read on the forum to help you get a better understanding of the process of freeing yourself from nicotine addiction.

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.
