  1. Dear QTrain-ers, I was thinking today about my motivations to quit smoking and to stay quit and thought I would share them, hoping y'all share your motivations in response. I consider my resolution to quit was a primary factor but, wealth and health came into play as well. I quit on a whim, a dare to myself. Unexpectedly, my immediate motivation was an inner strength I found in absolutely committing to the journey. This really helped me through the bumps, knowing I was clear in my resolve. In a more mercenary vein, wealth motivated me and if I am honest, it was very important. Each day, I ceremonially placed a ten dollar bill between the pages of a NOPE book which filled up quickly and was moved to a mason jar. Better to see my progress. In ten days, I had a hundred bucks. In ten months, I had Three Thousand ! I felt like Midas with all that dosh. As far as health, I was in ignorant denial and never paid much mind to health risks. Sure, a minor cold inevitably morphed into bronchitis and I certainly coughed a helluva lot but, for forty something years, I idiotically accepted that was just the way things were. I was weeks into my quit before I faced the truth and began to understand the ramifications of smoking and my nicotine addiction. Facing the damage done, I am tentatively grateful that maybe I quit in time. I feel great. Breathing is rapturous, innit ! Now, health is a motivator keeping me nicotine free and I haven't been knocked down with bronchitis in four friggin' years. Amazing. The personal empowerment by keeping this commitment to myself has influenced all parts of my life. I am stronger, braver, more truthful and hopefully have a sincere compassion for others fighting addiction, living with addiction. All you smoke free creatures here are great inspirations and kick a s s motivators, keeping me on the Good Foot. Tell us, if you will, about your Motivations. Love, S

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.
