    Decisions/Resolve

    The "decision to quit" means exactly fark-all-diddley-squat without the ... y'know ... actual act of quitting ... right? Literally millions of folk a day "decide" to quit ... yet never act on said decision. EZPZ.

    Increase Smoking Bans and Regulations

    Sarge just closes his browser window and silently wonders to himself, shaking his head : "How 'bout just a little farking personal responsibility ..." It ain't up to your government. No matter who you are nor where you live. EZPZ.

    Relapse

    Sarge questions your motivations for and your conviction to your quit. Do you want to quit? Really? Sarge doesn't think so. EZPZ.

    Turning back the clock..before x boxes and computers

    Who can forget those wacky Jarts ... aka Lawn Darts ... aka Immediate Trip To The Local E.R. and/or ... Morgue ? EZPZ

    SOS - it feels like it will be like this forever

    Sarge had his very last crave/urge at about 10 months. He is now nearing the 7-year mark and not a crave since. It goes away. For everyone. Timing is unique and personal, but it does go. EZPZ

    Our Gardens

    He has now. He's too busy out in The Gardens to keep up online for a few months. He's gone Professional with the back yard gardens. Now, back on point: While heliotropism/phototropism is a thing, it is not a guaranteed thing. Clue: Genetic variability is also a thing. EZPZ

    Just don’t smoke

    Bullshit. Sarge quit while Mrs. Sarge continued for another 3 years. There were smokes around the house. All around. There were smokes in the car. There were smokes packed in the luggage. There were smokes in the back woods and mountains of all the trails hiked and mountains climbed that The Sarges went to for 3+ years. Yes - there were even smokes in bed. It's was, as still is ... Easy Peasy. If one has a problem with smokes "around the house", then one is not fully committed to The Quit. Cigarettes are around. All around. Even in your house. Get used to it. Billions of non-smokers are around smokes and smokers every day ... and they still don't smoke. They don't find it any easier or harder to not smoke when there are cigarettes around. Nor should you. If you do, then Sarge suggests there's a need for quite a bit of self-examination, especially in the area of commitment to The Quit. This quitter gets it. ^^^ On a most fundamental level, we only make it difficult on ourselves. We can, just the same, make it easy. Sarge did. You can too. It is as easy or as difficult as we CHOOSE to make it. EZPZ
  8. Does anyone here NOT think that is the actual intent behind said legislation? I mean - Come on, folks ... EZPZ

    Lifetime of Addiction

    Sarge *is*, in fact, a crazy bloke. Very crazy, indeed. But that says nothing of his message. The message is righteous, valid, and just. Regardless of Sarge's sociopathic tendencies. Do not, under any circumstances, allow your government to infringe/impede your ability to make your choices in life, folks. No matter where you live nor who governs. You will be forever sorry you did. EZPZ

    Lifetime of Addiction

    Ben Franklin said it best ... in an altogether different and unrelated context ... but it quite aptly applies here. I will fight for freedom of choice - ANY CHOICE - in any situation at any time. The answer is to make the right choices. Not restrict others' freedom to choose. EZPZ

    Lifetime of Addiction

    > Please don't tell me to take personal responsibility. Sarge will tell anyone any damned thing he wants. He says what he wants, when he wants, and he means what he says. > You do not know what I do. Sarge doesn't care one iota what you do. It is not important here. It is irrelevant. The only thing imortant is that you are a Nicotine Addict and that you CHOSE addiction. The rest is distraction, rationalization, avoidance, and excuse. >But the tobacco companies have more blood on their hands than I do Failure to take full responsibility will ultimately lead to failure of your quit. You have a choice here. > They hurt millions. They hurt NOT ONE individual who didn't VOLUNTARILY, WILLINGLY, and OF THEIR OWN FREE WILL ... Choose to smoke. > You are confusing the two. You ... have a lot to learn. EZPZ

    Lifetime of Addiction

    Take some damned personal responsibility , folks. We knew what we were doing. We voluntarily chose this road. We were warned by many along the way of the dangers. From parents, to schools, to doctors, to friends, to PSAs on TV, to 11:00 evening news stories. Hell, the packaging itself has warned us since 1965(In the US) FFS. We made an informed choice. We chose to ignore the warnings. Once started, we could have chosen at any time to stop (just as you are doing now). We chose to wait. We chose to continue smoking. EZPZ

    About Me

    You will only have success when you quit all three. (Cig, Vape, Hooka) To do otherwise is futile frustration. There be Dragons and Daemons. You have been warned. What do? EZPZ

    Daily exercise log for everyone :)

    8-miler @ 1:03:04 (7:53/mile) Old Man Sarge is making progress. The goal is 6:50 to 7:05 for the full 26.2 Loooooong way to go. That's what happens when you sit on the couch for 11 months after your last race not logging a single damned mile. Mrs. Sarge has been training since Oct. Her first race is the Cincinnati Heart Mini Marathon[1] (15k (9.3 miles) in just a few weeks. Sarge is thinking about Bandit-ing[2] the race with her. He's up to the mileage but has no pace he wants on record yet. EZPZ ============= FOOTNOTES: ============= [1] http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Affiliate/2018-Cincinnati-Heart-Mini_UCM_317611_Event.jsp#.Wohzi6inHb0 [2] Bandit : To bandit a race - to start and run the race without bib-number, without digital tracking chip, without registration. You just show up and run the race. Of course you are ineligible for prizes and whatnot ... but you get to run the course and log your time ... assuming you don't get caught and escorted off the course.

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.
