After five months of looking and interviewing I finally landed a job! I accepted the offer an hour ago. I can't stand the craving....the association with something exciting I guess. How do you celebrate when you no longer smoke, vape, drink, do drugs....and youre on a diet....I think I've finally put the thought of  *actually* going up to 7-11 out of my mind but I could still use some support!

That's wonderful news Michelle!!! You celebrate by splurging on your favorite restaurant or having an ice cream sundae just like never smokers would :)  That is great news so why ruin it with nicotine?!

NOPE

Why would you even consider poisoning yourself while you celebrate your good news ?

A fleeting moment because of old patterns, sure, but to seriously consider throwing your quit and failing yourself ?  NOPE NOPE NOPE

You just learn to enjoy the moment without ingesting poisons and intoxicants.

 

One of my biggest fears when I quit smoking and drinking was that I would become a dreadfully bored malcontent.  Those fears are gone.  I have no regrets.

 

Improvise.  Adapt.  Overcome.

Good morning.  Just caught this thread, Congratulations on the new job Michelle! 

I'm confident that you would not give in to the Nicotine monster, the force is strong with you :) 

Sorry I don't mean to sound condescending, but I'm proud of you. Well Done mate!

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.
