Support for all

Posted in Hints and tips 01 Jan 2019

We need to support everyone in a positive way.....we do not need quoted passages from books etc, we do not need people standing on their soap boxes dishing out advice as if they know all there is to know. We simply need to quietly encourage and support anyone that needs it. Everyone has a point of view, but I honestly believe there are some who are giving advice that has not been asked for. Sometimes people post on the site to just get their thoughts and feelings out. Please let us all settle down and be the best e can be to each other.xx

    Point taken and no hard feeling's Robyn. You are always so level headed and full ofdsound advice. It seems i am more of a Red... meaning well, but perhaps misunderstood. Red did not call anyone stupid, nor did i , we said smoking was stupid. Heck, we admit we were addicts, as a process of the healing and in the realization of the truth.
    sorry for quoting but "The truth shall set you free".

    I have also made a resolution for the new year to move on to other things . I have succeeded in my quest to become a non-smoker. I have tried to encourage and support, and have left my story and other posts for anyone interested in how i had such an amazing journey. Yes, unusually so, with no real preparation but a belief. Common sense approach and committment.

    If i helped but one person to regain control of their lives from the nicotine addiction it was worth it. Some of you here will help to influence others as well . I am sure the trend will continue on down the line .
    It has before me and certainly will after me. I am satisfied i did my part.

    Absolutely no hard feelings Happiness....
    I am sure you have helped many people on this site, you are very enthusiastic and well read. And I know that you mean well and would never want to offend
    anyone. But yes, maybe sometimes a little over the top.....and I get the feeling that you already know
    Whatever you take on you would give it your all and you should be proud of is a very good trait to have. Stay loud and proud.

    It's all good.. We just have to remember, that something we write, can seem quite different, that if we were saying it face to face. All we can do, is share how we did it, and what worked for us.. That way, there are many options, and opinions to help someone find what works for them.. Right ?

    Yes, isn't it great !! Go you !! A new you, into a new year :)
    It's really strange now, to think back.. I thought, like most smokers, that I did it because I enjoyed it, because I wanted to, until one day that light came on, and I really asked myself why.. Nobody, in their right mind would do this, and that's when it hit me,, SMOKING MAKES YOU STUPID :) ! Because,, you have to be stupid to burn good money, time, and health, just to suck on a burning tube of tobacco ! DUH :) hahaha
    I never claimed to be a rocket surgeon, or a brain scientist, :) But, having to admit, to myself, how stupid I was being about this one thing, forced me to quit. We got this.. We are free ! And it feels good :)

    Yes Red, it is amazing how other wise intelligent people get sucked into the pit of slavery. We know it’s stupid, we know it is unhealthy, we know it is expensive, we know it sets us apart from main stream society....but we do it anyway. Such is the power we gave to it. Bloody stupid! I could not imagine ever smoking again.....I am so grateful to you for helping me see what was right there in front of me. You have an awesome 2019....thank you for your support.x
