I'm still here!

Guys guys guys....its been a dumpster fire lately but I'm still here. Thank you for reminding me that the cravings WILL decrease as time goes by as long as I don't give in. I've had several significant quits in my life but this is by far the longest I've gone still having cravings. Seems like last time after about three weeks or so they were manageable and infrequent. At 2.5 months I'm still having several an hour and they are very strong. IDK what changed, other than this time I quit vaping, not smoking. Cigarettes are supposed to have more addictive chemicals besides nicotine so you'd think it would be harder to quit cigs. Who knows. All I know is that I need to hang onto my smobriety the way I've held onto my sobriety (which by the way is much easer to maintain) Still, its helpful to be reminded of that so thank you to all who have reminded me.

Michelle, I think you meant to say "but this is my permanent quit"

I believe in you, you love this freedom and you won't give in to the nicotine monster.

You got this Michelle!

Hang in there Michelle,

 I know the cravings are tough but you are tougher. You will kick this addiction to the curb. You are so much stronger than the nicotine monster. I believe and have faith you will come out the other side with a lifelong 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.
