I don't have cold hands or feet anymore....I just noticed that the other day and it surprised me. I always had cold hands and feet, even in summer....that was a big eye opener!

Got rid of the nasty throat clearing thing I had to do all the time!

 

I was a major closet smoker, if I were out & about town, I would have to drive and go find some hiding place to smoke.  PA-thetic!!!  I was constantly afraid I would see someone I knew.  

 

No more rushing to get home so I could smoke in the dark cold smelly garage and "enjoy" (not) my smoke in peace.

Hahaha....watched a girl light a cigarette outside the restaurant I was leaving.

I think she was using one of those cheepie imitation bic lighters....the flame went so big she singed her bangs.

 

So glad that will never be me again. :)

That was the worst Jengelsnew! God, I remember that taste... gag.

 

When I used to smoke in a car or vehicle of any kind, we'd throw the ashes into a water bottle or can. 

 

No more accidentally drinking from that bottle/can! 

 

GAG.

I will get to spend more time with my children.

 

And they won't have to change my diaper cause I've had a debilitating heart attack or a stroke.

 

Don't misunderstand me.....I'm still gonna make em change my diaper. But because I'm mean like that. Not because I decided to kill myself slowly.

Benefits after Five years ?

 

Continued improvements in breathing and skin tone, taste and scent also, heart and circulation.

My flu or colds do not degenerate into bronchitis.

I have no cough. 

 

I never think about smoking anymore. 

I may have a vague memory,  'oh, I used to smoke during moments like this'   

but, this is without temptation or desire.

 

As the years go by, I am prouder and prouder of myself for dealing successfully with my nicotine addiction 

and have greater compassion for those still in the throes of addiction.

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.
