That sucks MLMR.  Hopefully, since it's one hour since you posted you're over it by now.  I guess the positive way to look at it is that the first few months you were probably having those cravings many times a day.  To have to deal with it once in a blue moon is actually a blessing. I believe those out of nowhere cravings will eventually stop....they did for me 😉 Keep that great inspirational quit going!

How is this even possible...?!

We get it... totally. I have days and I can't tell if my quit is aging like a fine wine with strong notes of currant and under tones of citrus or a hefty blue cheese that can clear a room 🤷...but I still love it and I know you do too❤️

So...I guess what I'm saying is I can come fart on your quit

or get you drunk...your choice 😅

Yep, been there done that. That's why we must never become complacent! 

Ahhh, yes.. two friends of mine recently blew their (long term) quits. I wonder if thats got anything to do with it. Maybe taking  a moment today to intently destroy any leftover romantizing. 💪

Yes, yes and yes! I do love it. When I realised how strong that craving was, my mind immediately started reciting all the downsides of smoking. Counter brainwashing. I was raised so well here  ...👌

 

Your humor. Please come, eat cheese and drink with me ok?

Sorry to hear your two friends threw thier beautiful quits aside ... I bet they are both very sorry and angry with themselves deep down ...and are very envious of you just now ...

Remember my saying ...It's ok to wobble ,just don't fall over ...this was given to me by a wise elder ,and has stuck with me since ...

Cheese and a drink ...OH !!!...I think there will be a few of us up for that ...!!!!

Wow, I just realised this will be my third smokefree christmas!😊 
 

... and I just love love love not worrying about smoking anymore. There have been days, even months where quitting was the Most Important Thing Ever and I felt like I would be dragging that quit with me for the rest of my life... and now I hardly ever think of it. 
 

Its been quite the ride though. Im clearly not one of those 'One day I just quit and that was that' people.  Oh, I've condemned myself for the struggle, for the sos-ing, for the anxiety. And what I found here was a brilliant combination of wise words, comforting and definitely the sober kick-in-the-butts that made it so much more doable.

 

Bottomline: take care of yourself, dont give up, embrace the suck, enjoy and exaggerate the good moments, hold on to whatever it is that fuells your fire and outhumor your fears. Cheers! ♥️

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.
