  1. Don't be afraid. Do it even though you might succeed. Adopt a brave attitude.
  2. Bacon, bell peppers and pineapple on a Detroit style pizza without tomato sauce.
  3. Kate's stock is rising and she'll enjoy the dividends.
  4. The next milepost to watch for will be when you completely accept that you are a non-smoker. It happened for me at about eight months; it was like a monkey fell off my back. It is a remarkable moment for many quitters, be sure to tell us if / when it happens for you.
  5. Our friend Soberjulie wrote this when she first quit: You don't have to be #1 at anything today. You don't have to figure things out, or understand, or make sure everyone (or Someone) understands you. You don't have to remember everything, or get all organized and start making lists. You don't have to solve every -- or any -- problem you have today (or solve someone else's problems today either). You don't have to figure out what will make you happy, or what you should do with your life. Those are good things to do of course, and come with a measure of reward or satisfaction or comfort. That's very true. I'm not saying those things are completely unimportant. But you don't have to do any of those things today. All you have to do today is not pick up that first cigarette. One hour at a time. One five minutes at a time. Until your head hits the pillow. And if you do that, you win. That's it. And the rest of that s*** will just have to work itself out or wait its turn. Smoke free first. The rest second. I love recycling.
  6. You can do it! The constant feeding of your nicotine addiction adds to your anxiety levels. Once you get that monkey off your back, you'll feel better and your body will start healing from the damage smoking does to it. You can work out a plan as you go.
  7. Good Job! I hope you haven't lost all of your counting skills.
  8. Hippity Hop Four Years down the bunny trail! Great Job!
  9. The Law of Addiction "Administration of a drug to an addict will cause reestablishment of chemical dependence upon the addictive substance." Welcome to the best decision you'll ever make.

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.
