Hello everyone, I decided 4 days ago to take the idea of quitting smoking seriously and quit cold turkey. It only took a chest infection due to covid 19 to finally push me over the edge. I had a couple tough cravings today but I worked through them. I was searching the internet for some kind of support system when I came across this site. I decided to join and get the help I believe that I will need to continue strongly.

G'day @Mac#23 and welcome. Biggest tip I have to offer any newbie is to just take it one day at a time...only focus on a single day...being 4 days in you know you can do 24 hours, you have already done it 3 times. Oh and don't worry about what others are doing with their quit, every quit us different so just do you.

Welcome Matt23.  This is the right place for support.  We are here to guide you on this journey.  Over the years, I had tried many attempts and ways to quit smoking and was never successful until I landed here.  Stay close to the forum and educate yourself.  I loved reading the blogs.  Play some games and get to know us.  So glad you made it through this virus and it opened you eyes to what is import.  You can do this!

Great job Mac!  You're now nearly a week into this.  That's something in which you should take great pride.  Keep doing this one day at a time and before you know it you'll be years removed from the shackles of this killer addiction.

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.
