  1. Try dreaming about running downhill next time. It'll be easier . EZPZ
  2. Sarge got the ol' "has anyone talked to you about <ominous pause> ... Periodontal Disease ... yet ...???" from the dentist one day. For years they tracked the receding of the gums. Deep cleaning / planing (horrible procedure) Imminent surgery forthcoming ... the one where they slice your gums back, peel 'em away from the teeth so they can clean the roots ... And then Sarge quit smokin. Within a year and a half, all signs of active gum disease disappeared. Receded gums will never regenerate. Bone loss is permanent. But no sign of disease and no progression in the better part of a decade since quitting. You can stop gum disease in its tracks if you quit, folks. Sarge is living proof. EZPZ
  3. Sarge knew by the end of his second day he would never smoke again. The first day? Not so much. EZPZ.
  4. You will go through the same old bullshit you went through last time. That's why it is advisable to quit once, and only once. You will never be as relaxed as you will be once you've broken the monkey on your back. EZPZ.
  5. If one is walking in the middle of railroad tracks it is suicide. Nothing more. Nothing less. Suicide. The only question is was it intentional or not. Did he do it on purpose or was it accidental. In either case ... it is his fault, not yours. You did not kill that individual. He killed himself. EZPZ P.S. : Smoking won't help.
  6. Sarge quite once, and only once in 27+ years. 1,000 times? Sarge says again, but corrects himself: Why quit more than once? EZPZ P.S. - Sarge believes SOS to be quite a waste of time. If one is gonna smoke ... nothing anyone says will stop you (hundreds here prove it each and every year- they post an SOS and smoke anyway) ... and if you're NOT gonna smoke, you don't need some silly internet post to stop you . You weren't gonna smoke anyway. Sarge has never participated in the SOS thread here intentionally.
  7. You need one ... and only one thing to be a successful quitter: A desire to quit that is stronger than your desire to smoke that next cigarette. All else is noise to pollute the process. You don't need support. You need to want it. If you want it, you will quit regardless of your situation/support. If you want to smoke, you will smoke regardless of your situation/support. It is 100% an internal motivation. Externalizing it to outside events/people (a.k.a "support") is the rationalization of The Junkie Brain. Do you want to quit more than you want to smoke? That is both necessary, and sufficient for a success. EZPZ
  8. Of course not - don't be ridiculous.

    Depression is mostly imaginary. Mostly. EZPZ
  10. Not in the slightest. Never, at all, in fact these days. Full Disclosure: Coming up on year 8 this year. It took about 10 full months to get past any kind of "difficulty" ... but Easy Peasy nonetheless. EZPZ.
  11. Sarge always said : "Why quit twice ?" First you have to quit cigarettes ... ... then you have to quit NRT. What's the point? Why. Quit. Twice. ??? EZPZ
  12. Vape Nation: Vaping Is Bad, Kids The Surgeon General declared youth e-cigarette use to be an epidemic, but many vaping communities online downplay the risks. What does the evidence show? https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/vape-nation-vaping-is-bad-kids/ EZPZ
  13. Sarge had zero support from his Mrs. Sarge. She smoked. Full time. Cigarettes, lighters and ashtrays laying around all rooms of the house. Smoking every waking minute. It doesn't matter. It don't mean nothin' (not a thing (not a thing)) -- you carry on with your own plan regardless. Plot Twist: Mrs. Sarge saw how much better Sarge's life was and quit herself 3-ish years later. She's got 4 years under her belt now (to Sarge's near 8). Ignore those who still smoke. It doesn't affect you and is none of your concern. If they have some sense, they'll come around. If they don't, they won't. In either case your quit is your quit and depends on no one but you. Enjoy your new tobacco-free life. EZPZ
  14. Not at all his favorite smell but today, The Sarge smells of ... Vegemite. EZPZ

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.
