A bit about me


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I’m Arynn! I’m 24 years old and I have been smoking since I was 16. The past few months I’ve been having money problems because I’m chronically ill and have a lot of health provlems. I was forced to quit and I was bitter! My dad passed away this last May and when I was born he quit cold turkey immediately. I thought about this and decided I owe him this back by quitting. So, I’m currently 90 hour smoke free and I feel like I’m going to die.


I’ll post more about more about me and my symptoms and story in another topic! I look forward to meeting new people.

Hello and welcome Arynn :) Congratulations on making the best decision you possibly could for your future. Smoking does nothing positive for us and only enslaves us in the form of a deadly addiction. The good news is, you too can beat this addiction and take your life back. We have done it and so can YOU! Stick around and read all your can . There are lots of resources here including a lot of quit smoking videos that cover about every aspect of quitting. Stay busy and distract yourself through the early days of your quit. We'll be here to support you. Be sure to participate here regularly. It really does make a difference :)

Arynn, it makes me really happy to see a young person like you come to their senses and dump this stupid addiction at 24. Many of us on this forum were already hooked before it was known how harmful smoking is. It seems like lately so many young people have forgotten or disregard the dangers of smoking and are puffing away thinking it’s cool (again). Good for your for putting a stop to it and got honoring your dad in that way. Keep posting and “talking” about how you’re doing. KTQ! (Keep that quit!)

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.
