Good work.  Strength builds with every successful bout.  You're on the right path...Proceed.

 

And like Doreen said, regardless of where you post, we'll find it.

Before you take that one puff and throw your quit away, remember that everything you've gone through so far will have to be repeated.  Please make a new thread in this board so we can respond and help you keep your quit.  Whatever you're feeling is only temporary and nothing is worth giving up your quit over.  Not one puff ever.

 

Myself and the moderators are immediately alerted each time a post is created in this forum.  Please do not smoke!

Please

Welcome to QuitTrain, Hayley.  Congrats on deciding to quit smoking.

 

Like you, I had several attempts to quit before quitting for good.  That cycle of quitting and relapsing is horrible.  It is best to quit for good and leave the cig's behind forever.

 

Yes, it may feel like quitting is very hard.  These are normal thoughts.  However, seeking out support as well as educating yourself about nicotine addiction really helps in quitting for good.  You will find a lot of support and knowledge here.

 

And to reference Jillar's previous post, more people will see your posts in the introduction thread.  There are a lot of people here willing to help you out and wanting you to succeed in quitting for good.

 

It is nice to have you here.

Hi Hayley,  So glad you found us.  I also found this site one Google.  I had tried everything; patches, cessation clinics and hypnosis.  There is something wonderful about this site because it worked for me.  It is full of information and so many  personal accounts on quitting smoking.   Once you get going it is not that bad.  It actually is quite rewarding.   So excited to help you on this journey.

Hope you stay with it Hayley! The benefits that last the rest of your life are so worth the uncomfortable days you may experience in the beginning. 

 

Trust me ....... you are NO different than any of the rest of us and we have made it through the same early days you are experiencing now. You need to be fully committed and 100% invested in your quit. Once you are and are able to turn your back on smoking - yes, take it off the table completely, then and only then will you be free from this addiction.

 

It's as simple as never taking another puff from a cigarette. It's the adjustment in your brain to living that way that takes a lot of time and work but it WILL happen to you as it has to all the others who have gone before you. Just give it a chance :)

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.
