Great post...the only thing I will add.....

All roads lead to Rome...cold Turkey is not for everyone... There are patches ,gum,tablets...

As long as you don't smoke ...nicotine is a poison....

It's a drug...you have to fight for your freedom...

Good post!! I believe that becoming active in this forum and The Other Place helped me remain a nonsmoker.  It was my #1 quitting tool.

This is a very good post, I will add this:

 

I recommend watching 3 of Joel´s videos every day, and to spend at least a few minutes every day here, twice a day, reading any material that may be of interest to you.

 

The amount of time you invest in yourself and your quit in the beginning, is proportional to the degree of understanding the process of quitting smoking and general happiness that you will have as a non-smoker.

I will steal from the Mexican. You need to commit to a year coming here. And I will add you need to be active for that year. Post. Socializing and helping others

Staying active is critical because you are held accountable to your new online quit fam.

Not so easy to give up and think no one will notice then.

 

Your life is literally what's at stake. Plus it's fun!!

After you quit and come by everyday, you start to get attached to the forum.  You will not want to let everyone down so if you are tempted, it may just give you the pause you need to get over the urge.

I'd like to add that helping others who are struggling is a great way to maintain your quit.

 

Doubly true if your quit is new.  The new quitters feel the pain while the older quitsters can only remember it.

Remember we all arrive on the train with our own unique baggage. Be mindful that your experiences aren't everyone else's. Horses for courses peeps.

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.
