Thinking about quitting tomorrow.


Recommended Posts

I think I feel ready to try and quit again. I don't know how I'll get through it. All my attempts have failed in the past. Can't use nrt or meds. So my only way is cold turkey.

Go for it mate....it's the greatest gift you will ever give yourself. You have a whole train of crazy here in your corner to keep you on track.

 

Don't focus on ya lost quits, other than to know what your triggers were and how to get passed them.

 

Remember you o not have to quit for one day, and repeat that every 24 hours.

You do it in whatever fashion you can. If you can only handle a minute at a time do that. If an hour doesn't seem that far do that.

 

Just breathe, stay close to the board, and reach out if you need any help. We are here if you need us.

 

Also don't forget to post an S.O.S. if you feel like you are going to relapse. Remember post and wait for at least 2-3 replies.

Third time quitting was the charm for me! There was a span of about 30 years or so between the 1st and 3rd quits....a lot of damage was done during the 40+ years I spent inhaling poison sticks and I have spent the last 3 1/2 years rectifying the damage done and am extremely  lucky to still be around to do so! Watch the Joel Spitzer videos found here and read through the forums ...there is a lot of information to help you here...knowledge is power!

Well, if you don't know how you're going to get through it, chanced are, you won't. You wouldn't go on a road trip to a far away destination without a map would you? If you did, you'de never get there.

 

Same rule applies with quitting smoking. You need a plan. You can't just wing it or you'll be setting yourself up for failure.

 

Live and breathe on this board. Read, read and then read some more. Post a LOT. Post every day. Post 20 times a day. Whatever you have to do to learn how to quit successfully.

 

You can do this. Believe me, if I can quit, you can too!

What Jim said.  ^^^

 

First off, not knowing how you are going to get through quitting is a troubling sign. 

 

Believe that you can quit.  That is very important.  Any smoker who really wants to quit can do so.  There are plenty of ex-smokers on this site who have proven that by quitting for good.

 

Stick around this site.  Read all you can about nicotine addiction.  Post a lot here about your experiences, struggles, etc.  We've all been through this. 

 

Education about nicotine addiction and support from fellow quitters really helps.  You can get both here.

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.
