Nobody can help you but you. 

When you want to quit, you will quit. 

When you don't want to quit, you will continue to fart around. 

Only you can choose one way or the other. 

Don't look to us. 

We can't do it for you.

Tomorrow at 8 pm. (I know some disagree with picking a specific date/time)

 

You're doing this the right way; picking a date the following day.  Some pick a date after the holidays, after this or that and it's just not necessary.  It's like telling a {pick your drug} addict to keep on using until they're more comfortable to stop using.  Either way, today is the day.  BTW, I had my last cigarette at 7pm the day I quit.  :)

 

You should start a blog today to chronicle your quit.  Use it as a journal of sorts because it's another way of keeping yourself accountable to stay nicotine free.  The other way of course is one that you've already done; telling the world that you're quitting this evening at 8pm.  Trust me, we'll be watching.  😎

Well done Sparky.  You should go to the Daily NOPE section and vow not to smoke today with the simple word "NOPE".

Hello Sparky,

 

This is great news !!!

 

Start this quit right, be sure to watch Joel Spitzer´s video below about relapse prevention, then do click on this link https://whyquit.com/joel/Joel_Index_04_Relapse.html  This is the link he talks about in his video that will take you to many articles and videos that are about relapse prevention.

 

Education is key to getting a stickey quit !!!

Welcome (officially)! You are now a non-smoker just like all of us :)  Stick around because it;s important to educate yourself about this addiction and get as much support as you want or need.

Thanks for the link, I needed that today!  While driving around doing errands today, I was getting antsy, and then feeling depressed and down. Still do a bit. This feeling that I'm denying myself some sense of pleasure.

That feeling is pretty standard Sparky yet I know it's hard to shake. Try to focus on the big picture though .... improved health - improved wealth and freedom from enslavement to nicotine addiction! Those are all huge benefits. It's even harder during the holiday season because we all want to "feel good" and smoking was part of our feel good process when we smoked. Truth is, not smoking can make us feel a lot better about things. No more running outside for a smoke in the cold and missing time with family & friends or worrying about if we have enough smokes to tide us over while the stores are closed at Christmas :) 

 

 

Giving the finger to smoking during the holidays can feel REAL GOOD!

Sparky, great that you stopped smoking.  You mentioned you felt like you were denying yourself some sense of pleasure -- look at that thought as rubbish.  You are giving yourself more pleasure as the benefits of not smoking will begin to add up -- you are giving yourself a new sense of freedom, enjoy it!!!!

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.
