So today has been my first day as a non-smoker.  I seem to have done ok....in fact other than a crying tantrum with a hosepipe this afternoon, all seems to have been good.  :blink:

 

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome aboard Pumpkin and congratulations on beginning the process of setting yourself free.

 

Any emotional roller coaster type stuff experienced during these initial days is temporary and fleeting.  The pride and freedom that comes with quitting is permanent.

 

Buckle up, knuckle down, drive on.

Thank you so much for the welcomes and apologies for the late reply.  I am guessing most of you are the other side of the Atlantic to me.  

 

So I am just entering day two....I feel ok, but didn't sleep very well at all which I expected (I have done this before....and failed).  I know it improves so will just live with it.

 

Plan to keep myself busy today....its a lovely sunny day so good for cheering the mind!

 

Thanks again everyone.

 

:D

Hi Doreen.  I live in France, but am British.  Moved here 4.5 years ago.  I was actually a non-smoker when I moved here (had been for about 2.5 years) but things got extremely stressful and I started again.  This morning I found a cigarette in my car.....just sitting there looking at me.  I ripped it up and put it in the bin.   :P

I actually have stopped twice.  Once for about three years, the other about 2.5 years.  Always so angry with myself when I failed.

Every time you stopped you gave your body a break so don't dwell on it. Here you are again and ready to go. Better to keep at then give up. Here is to a new day

Merci tout le monde! So that's two days down now. No major wobbles....had a cup of tea instead of a cigarette this afternoon and just enjoyed the warm sunshine. Also did some yoga. Got my yoga class in the morning too so more to take my mind d off things. Doubly hard at moment as my oh is away in UK as his dad is very poorly. The temptation would be to smoke even more, so I am surprising myself. Just hope I sleep better tonight.

It's gotta start somewhere, right?

 

1 day becomes 2. 2 days become a week ... weeks become months and before you know it you wonder what all the fuss was about.

 

That is a glorious day ... but it starts with Day One.

 

Welcome aboard The Train.

 

Enjoy the ride ...

 

 

 

Easy Peasy

An islander in Franc. That's dim. I thought Canada was dum. But that's top window licking territory.

 

 

Just kidding. Islanders anywhere are dim

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.
