So now you are "emerita", Turtles.  You have earned a special place in the forum and I hope you will stay and continue to help those just starting out.  I celebrated for you with dinner.  Tonight I made seared arctic char with garlic butter quinoa and fresh steamed cauliflower - chased with a Western New York State Traminette.  Between the quit and the lock down, never been so mindful about food.  I feel that 15 lbs, too - but I think the better diet will help.  The forum has, and continues to be, very important to the quit and I'm grateful for the help from you and all others to get this far.  Excelsior!

Hello to all April Ex Smokers,

Here are some great tips from one of our old timers in quitting.


From: Medubich


Quit smoking April 01, second day smoke free, I feel amazing. I have intense cravings but I started to watch a lot of movies to quench it, seems to be working. 

Psychologically, it's really hard, seeing people smoke and reprogramming my mind that they're killing their lungs. Team NOPE!! all the way!!!

Hi Medubich,

Welcome to the forum.  So glad you joined us and hope you will stay here for information and support.  It is hard but you are staying strong.  

Right now there are not a lot of April quitters but more folks will be along. Your decision to quit smoking is the best gift you could ever give yourself.   I was a 40+ yr smoker and this place helped me quit and stay quit.  One day at a time you can beat nicotine addiction.  

Read everything you can .

Best wishes,

Have you read Allan Carr's Easy Way to Quit Smoking - there is a link to the book somewhere in this forum.  I hope someone can bring it up for you.  Highly recommend it.  It's a easy read - a bit humorous as well.  

We are here for you when and if you need us.  The forum has tons of postings and articles of quitting and what to expect which are very helpful to KNOWING YOUR ENEMY.  If you have questions or concerns, please go post them.   We have all been through this and understand what you are going through pretty much every step of the way.

Welcome to the non-smoking society.
