How Does It feel to Quit?

Recommended Posts

From day 1 you can feel good, happy in the knowledge that you no longer have to smoke. You may feel physically unpleasant because of withdrawal but you are now a nonsmoker! Go out and live your life.

I thought that quitting would be harder and that I had to be miserable. Not true!

To me it feels priceless as I finally have the mental peace I never, ever have to do that ever again.

It feels....astonishing. Liberating.

 

Early, there were some bad days...but nowhere near as bad as I thought they would be.

Excellent post.  Don't delay quitting and let your body get busy healing itself.  No need to prolong the inevitable.  You're viewing this thread so you know you want to quit, that you need to quit and don't want to be a smoker for the rest of your life.  Why wait any longer?  No better time than the present.

How does it feel? 

 

I feel like a never smoker. 

 

Being exposed to 2nd hand cigarette smoke makes me physically ill.

 

I will die a non-smoker.

 

I'll bet my life on it.

 

If you quit long enough you'll forget how to smoke.

 

Smoking is a sickness, a mental illness, not only an addiction.

 

The quit is the cure for your malady.

 

If you are sick, get well soon, it may just save your life.

Hi there Wiley and friends :)

 

I like Tracey's post. I like all of the posts.

 

I love militant anti-smoking rhetoric, so I couldn't just leave it as a simple "I feel like a never-smoker".  :)

 

Nobody ever quit by not being fiercely proud of what they have done and most don't mind telling why they feel like they do.

 

And nobody who ever quit did it without having a "warrior" spirit" which allows them feel reborn.

 

It's amazing what a human being can do when they have a dream.

 

Thanks for the post Beacon.  :)

How does it feel to quit ?

 

It feels EMPOWERING. 

 

Physically and emotionally,   Empowering.

 

Granted,  some days are crap (just like real life).

Some triggers are strong (but, never stronger than your resolve).

Some craves seem to go on forever (they don't, they max out after 3-5-10 minutes).

 

It takes effort to push smokey thoughts out of your head,

and an honest clarity to commit to NOPE (Not One Puff Ever), 

It also takes a willingness to live through some times when you may feel very uncomfortable.

 

BUT,

when you put in the sincere effort and commit to your quit,

you are rewarded with exceptional gifts for yourself. 

Gifts of self-confidence, a new and reliable trust in yourself, and a freedom that is palpable. 

Empowerment.

 

How does it feel to quit for you ?

I wish this was on the main board!! There is POWER in this thread!! I love love love it!

 

How do you explain the Divine? Something so wonderful it makes you shine...
The end of feeling like you're just wasting time.
Quitting is the breath of life when all is lost,
Not selling your soul for any cost.
Quitting is a second chance at an old dance but this time you know the moves.
I would give my quit to the people I love (I can't, but I would) just so they would know what freedom feels like because I know they would give my quit back and find one of their own.

Many people have anxiety about quitting and should know,

often 'the thinking' about quitting and the anticipation of quitting causes unnecessary stress. 

Quitting is far easier than one would think.  

 

Nicotine  addiction is all about anxiety.

Quitting is all about freedom.

I feel like the character Jack in the movie “Room”.  He was a 5 year old boy born into captivity and imprisoned his entire life in a 10 x 10 foot space known as Room.  When he finally escaped captivity at the age of 5 there was a sudden explosion of senses he had never experienced before.

He must have realized: THIS is what the world is supposed to be like.

I felt that same feeling when I quit smoking.

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.
