It just doesn't seem real that I am coming up on 10 years quit!  To all who are considering quitting...you CAN do it...and it is so worth the discomfort (and yes, some times misery) you have to go through.  I smoked for 40 years, and I know if I can quit, anyone can!!  Happy 10th to us!!

To all the newbies who are active or lurking, I can tell you that quitting smoking is definitely something you can do and it is worth the early struggles.


I quit after roughly 20 years as a smoker, and the last few years of my smoking life was spent struggling with short quits, trying to cut down, relapsing, etc.  What helped me was joining a site like this and reaching out for support and reading about others' experiences in their quits.


I also tried to take it one week, day, hour, minute at a time.....whatever it took.  Don't worry about craves that might happen a day or two from now.  Just focus on pushing through and defeating any craves that you may be currently experiencing..  Each crave you fight through makes your quit stronger.


Quitting smoking is very doable and I encourage anyone who wants to quit to take the leap.  It is worth it.

Congratulations to the spectacular Doreen and all members of the class of 2013 who have stayed the course and will be celebrating their first smoke-free decade this year!!!  I'm a couple of years behind and happy to say I'll never catch up because there's no way any of these folks are turning back.  

Thanks for showing us that one minute, one hour, one day at a time will eventually add up to the celebration of the decade!!!  Now, it's time to party like a penguin!

Wow!!!  Can't believe it's been 10 years.  Summer Quitters helped me get started on my smoke free journey.   LOVE LOVE LOVE being smoke free!  Those first few hours, days weeks, had some hard moments, but we kept saying NOPE, and counting to 20 and back.  


Keep on keeping on.  And as the Sarge would say, "Easy Peasy!"

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.
