I am not thin skinned. I appreciate what you are trying to say, but when what I was trying to portray, is something that is valid and pertaining to this particular issue ie smoking and the detriment of doing so, I considered it pertinent to my point. The fact that iCanQuit wanted me to water down my post, although it contained no offensive language, had information for which I wouldn't be prepared to support in a court of law, that the iCanQuit website considered perhaps "over the top", is irrespective to which I would stand by. I owe it to certain people to tell it like it is, not whatever, including iCanQuit, would like it to be. I hope, and wish, you will read my previous responses to your messages. I still, and will always remain steadfastly so, of what I initially tried to post. The fact that iCanQuit decided not to do so, was their decision alone.....theirs alone!
BTW, I have used the picture of Ben Chifley. He was our PM late 40's, early 50's. He smoked. Cigs at first, but a pipe later in life. He died of a massive heart attack aged 65.
I'm not suggesting that smoking killed him, for that would be scurrilous to even suggest that. However having said that, smoking probably would've have played a part in his demise, for any type of smoking could and does play a detrimental part in anyone's health. The information on this issue is for all of us to see, there's nothing new in what I'm saying.
For iCanQuit to block what I had to say, is detrimental for others to see what they already know. I felt this was an unsubstantiated intrusion upon freedom of speech (if anything). Telling it like it is, is no offensive than what is emblazoned on out cigarette packets that we see today.
iCanQuit, please review your website. Not every posting is by a nutter, and most certainly, not every posting contains inappropriate language.
I'm sorry SuzyQ92 I have decided to vent my frustrations with this website through your obvious concern for my welfare (mine, yours), however, this website needs to lighten up if they wish to attract more people to utilize their site.
To ignore this plea would be a travesty and an abject failure for why this site exists!
And Red-67, if you're reading this, not an expletive was forthcoming, nor will I use language to get my point across. Never have, never will.
Again SuzyQ92, I apologise for using your response to ask another respondent to issue me, Red-67, a unconditional apology for what they (He/She) accused me of. That I had use language that was totally inappropriate, was a accusation of unmitigated proportions for which you had no supporting evidence. I want you to retract that allegation unreservedly.
I dare say they won't, but I could be hopeful.
Therefore, I will end on this note. I wish all the very, very best and am forever hopeful that you will be able to kick the evil weed from your daily life.
