  1. Rob, first of all, the ONLY person you let down was yourself. We feel sorry for you, but our day goes on. You are the one who has to reset your counter. With that being said.... Trust me, there is no such thing as a social smoker. Believe me...I've tried every way in the book to be a smoker and a non-smoker. It just does not work. You are either a smoker or you are not. If you put out your last cigarette a month ago and pick up another.....you're a smoker. We must all remember .... Not One Puff EVER! I am so sick of having to reset quit meters.....
  2. Jackie, I've been there too many times.... I want a smoke....NO A smoke would be good right now.....NO Know what would top off this right now? A smoke.....NO What do we want right now? A smoke....NO A smoke sounds good for this....NO (About one-hundred thousand times later) A smoke seems fitting for this.....YES That is how everyone relapses. For all those NO's we said, it only takes one yes. Don't ever say yes again. Knock that little birdie off your other should and don't let it land again.
  3. Strap yourself into a seat on the Quit Train and ride the ride. There is going to be good and bad. Fight through the bad and enjoy the HE77 out of the good.
  4. It's a little late in the day, but I'll NOPE the rest of it.
  5. Evelyn, I am not a Dr. so do not take this as medical advice. However, I have experienced anxiety as post withrawal symptoms. As a smoker, I never got anxious. However, early in my quit, I did feel anxiety. Looking back, I wander it what I concidered anxiety was just the tightness of the chest physical change. Try the 4x4x4 breathing. Take a deep breath in for a count of 4, hold for a count of 4, and slowly release the breath for a count of 4. Repeat. I bet it helps.
  6. Susana, I know and have lived every one of your words. My quit journey started on 01/04/2012 at 2 PM! My first quit was easy and simple and lasted 2 months, at which point I romanced the cigarette. Since that time, I have continuously battled quitting/smoking. I am quit, but I will not ever say I am successful until I have a year without ONE SINGLE PUFF. Nobody with any type of educated quit can ever go back to the ignorant smoker who happily puffed along, ignoring all the dangers, the warnings, the indications from his/her own body. That smoker who said 'It's just a little habit.' So, there are those of us who are the slow learners.... We see the rules, we hear the words, we read the posts, but we just don't get it yet. We have not made it through to the other side. I find it quite easy to make it into No Mans Land. I have not found the trick to get through. Perhaps this is the time. It sure is right now. I'll worry about tomorrow when tomorrow comes. I know this post is going to provide fuel to other people who will misinterpret what I am trying to say. I am just trying to say, there are others on this board with multiple relapses, too. Keep battling! Find that thing that works for YOU!!!!!!!
  7. Saturday is 12/13/14 for those of us in the U.S. and other parts of the world were the month comes first. What an incredible date to quit! For those who have thought about quitting, why not make it 12/13/14? If you cannot decide when on Saturday to quit.....make 15:16:17. So, set your date right now. Your last cigarette EVER will be on 12/13/14 at 15:16:17. That means at 17 seconds after 3:16 PM on Saturday, December 13th, 2014 you will become a nonsmoker! I absolutely know those of you who are reading this that are still smoking, that is EXACTLY what you want. Well, what better time than 12/13/14 15:16:17?!??!?!?!?!?
  8. NOPE - none for me thank you very much!

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.
