Freedom Train is a vehicle that provides a place for everyone to gather to celebrate the milestones and successes of those in our community. This tradition was started by one of our community members (pir8fan) as a way to way to celebrate the daily successes of everyone who is on their quit smoking journey, because no matter where you are in your quit, every day of your quit is special and is cause for celebration!


The tradition has grown into a daily discussion post within the “Community Traditions, Events & Celebrations” space that is run by 5 “conductors” from within the Community who are long-time active members.


The conductors keep track of major milestones by anyone who wishes to share (you can register for the Freedom Train here) and will create a new discussion post each day to note anyone celebrating a special milestone (be it one week, one month, 100 days, 1000 days, or 10 years!).


Anyone who wants to “ride” the Freedom Train is encouraged to participate by:

  • Leaving a comment that @ mentions the specific member who is highlighted to congratulate them in their success (putting the @ sign in front of a user’s name will notify them that you mentioned them!)
  • Leaving a comment celebrating your own milestones for that day
  • Sharing pictures, quotes, any comments to celebrate and join in the fun!


You can ride the Freedom Train by clicking on the “Celebrations and Events” tab.


From there click, on the link for the day’s Freedom Train under “All Aboard the Freedom Train” text and ride the train!
