It's going real good. I rarely get any serious cravings anymore but I still keep my guard up. I'm sure I'll come across some other triggers or cravings along the way but I'm ready. I'll take them head on like all the others and turn them aside. I am a non smoker now and will not ever smoke again. I am stronger than the addiction and deserve a happier and healthier life.

I have had a rough few days. Spent yesterday in. ER. BP and heart rate way up. I do have A-Fib, but that was not the problem. Not sure what wad. I have to admit when I left the hospital I wanted to say screw it stop and get some ciggs. But I didn't. Really struggling today. Pretty overwhelmed with things. Thanks for asking.

I'm doing great.  Triggers are few and far between these days, I also find them very negligible. 

I love my new Freedom so I'm confident that I will never give in to this nasty addiction ever again. 

Thanks for following up with us newbies, encouragement and support go a long way.  🙂

Hi everyone!  I'm doing OK and hope everyone else is as well.  I have been feeling down about this virus.  It's so hard to have a life these days.  I went away for the weekend to try to cheer myself up.  I think it worked as I'm feeling much better now.

Boy, you're sure right about that! Which makes me have that much more respect for all you guys who chose to quit in spite of this virus, you all really should be so proud of yourselves 🤗

100 days smokeand nicotine free today. Happy day. Slightly scared I may have COPD. No symptoms other than I'm sure if I had to blow into a device to measure lung capacity the results would be dismal. But you know, hey ho, better to be free at any cost. Only smoked for 20 years but very heavily. Not sure if I want to see a doctor!

Congrats to all other newbies by the way

That's a serious enough symptom to warrant a visit to your dr. A lot of times it's just your lungs hard at work cleaning up the damage that's causing the shortness of breath but if not then the sooner you catch the COPD the better at keeping it in check. Plus it's just a good idea to have a checkup after quitting if for nothing more then the ego boost you get from everyone there congratulating you for quitting 😊

Congratulations on 100 days! 🌝

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.
