Been Awhile

Recommended Posts

Hello all, it's been awhile since I've posted , but this place hasn't been far from my thoughts. Tomorrow at 5:46 PM will be a year quit for me. I just wanted you all to know I may not have made it through the first part of this journey with out your help. I had to go out on my own without my safety net to complete first step. For those of you just finding it...use it and learn from the people here. I found out they knew and felt every emotion I was feeling and could talk me off the edge when needed ….it may be quite a few times before it's all said and done, but come here for help, it's worth it. I don't think it is ever over, the cravings, but they will as everyone says here , get better. Everything will look up for you and when it does it will astonish you how much better you feel... not only physically but mentally about yourself. Thank you all for your help it is and was much appreciated. And you new quitters...get on and ride this train and keep the NOPE attitude.

I am so happy for you @Wantsit !

For sure, you 'gots it' now.

Congratulations on your First YEAR of Freedom.

 

Cravings and Triggers fade and fade, fading imperceptibly after a while.

I think of smoking as a concept now and as a result of volunteering here, I think about many aspects of nicotine addiction

but, out in the other world, I don't think about my smoking or not smoking.

It is never a temptation or even a fleeting but, annoying thought anymore and hasn't been since the first year or so.

I still pay mind to NOPE and grateful at the end of the day that I remain free.

 

Stay vigilant, you beautiful nicotine free creature, and continue to reward yourself.

You have built a marvelous quit.

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.
