Please don't abuse my method anymore

Posted in Reasons to quit 11 Dec 2019

Pisces24, Happiness? and TryingTK

I am so horrified and shaken by your constant touts and ridicule.

You obviously didn't read my story as I have 4 children so the "my age group" comment was discrimination??

Next I don't need to explain my story to you but I will with shaking hands.

Being left a single father due to lung cancer I needed to find anyway possible to quit smoking.

Having tried EVERY method NUMEROUS times, then to have Champix, which NEARLY caused ME to not be here for my children, I found Vaping.

35 years of smoking and now I don't even vape, which by the way is NOT smoke. From the 1st day of Vaping no cigarette has touched my lips!!

I don't wish to argue (especially about political standpoints and agenda's some clearly know nothing about) and only came on here to tell my success story and to help others but all I have received is abuse due to differing "opinions".

I would rather see my children vape (non Nicotine) then smoke but thank GOD and my friends around me, I am now free of all and can be here till the end for my children.

Sorry I upset you so much.

If you had just read my story and actually cared (not abused) but also accepted this worked for me and millions of others I wouldn't feel so much pain right now.

Support each other please, we are all on the same journey.


You will not hear anything but support from me now....GOD BLESS

    Sorry these animals couldn't find it in their hearts to accept that everyones journey is different. My heart goes out to you and your family. And I'm thankful you found something that worked to save you for a future with your children.

    HI, AndrewCam, and, for my part, Welcome :)
    I am truly sorry that you seemed to be so misunderstood. We should all accept, that any way to quit smoking is a good thing, and even better when it results in total freedom, as in your case. It is also important for others to understand, that if the best one can do, is switch to vaping over smoking, it is still much less harmful. Sure, there are still some unknowns, but we do know what is in cigarette smoke, and the nicotine is probably the least harmful, even if it is the addictive portion. I hope my post, on the subject, makes a little sense to some, and we can all reach a more understanding approach. I have, at times, also been misread, or misunderstood here, so, for what it's worth, I will offer my apologies, on behalf of the forum. I do think some are in order. ?

    I’ll offer an apology as well. When I feel slighted, I tend to lash out and attack as opposed to considering what might be best for an individual. Never meant to personally attack but I can see how it came off that way and I apologize.

    Wish the best and cheers to whatever you feel is the best solution for you.

    Wasn't being abusive. Seems like there's only one way or the highway with you. I did say it was good you have up but I have my opinion and you have yours. That's ok.
    I'd rather not chat with you anymore you are so edgy and defensive and I don't enjoy your company.
    May I say again
    It's a massive achievement and I wish y l u all the best.
  • Pisces24, Central Coast December 11, 2019 | 11:47
    I do also apologise for upsetting or offending anyone. I admire ANYONE who can give up Smoking. I've got a very long way to go before I can even get to a place that's close to where you are.
    I don't apologise for having an opinion that's different but do apologise to all if I said it the wrong way.
    After all, aren't we all headed to the same place?????
  • AndrewCam, Western Sydney December 11, 2019 | 11:49
    I have commended every method and not just vaping Pisces and never been edgy or defensive. Look in the mirror....
    If you don't enjoy my company then don't reply to my messages or involve yourself at all.
    I find you evil, nasty, cruel and and thank God you don't enjoy my company are not one of my friends or relatives.
  • AndrewCam, Western Sydney December 11, 2019 | 11:53
    Thank you Red-67 and TK,
    Appreciate your words.
    I never meant to upset anybody.
  • Pisces24, Central Coast December 11, 2019 | 12:40
    Where do you get Evil, nasty and cruel????
    Look back over previous posts.
    I can't be bothered with you. You are so angry and argumentative.
    If you gave up Smoking so long ago why are you here on this website?
    Are you trying to help anyone or are you flying your own Vaping Flag?
    Maybe I'm Wong, and I'm su're you'll tell me, but I haven't seen you reach out to anyone to help them succeed. All about you!
    I think you just want to pick arguments.
    I've got seen any compassion like I have received from Happiness, Red or TryingTK...
    PS. I say to you once again GOOD ON YOU for giving up Nicotine and Smoking however you did it...
    Wishing you all the best anyway

    I think you should stop now Pisces....Sssshhhhh, and please leave me alone or I will report you as an abusive member.
    Good luck on your journey.
    I have heard people can be angry and irritable when first giving up...I wasn't, but my prayers and thoughts are with you..
    God Bless.

    My god Pisces 24 , just leave this man alone. He has done nothing to you. And he has suffered enough. Go away and stop attacking people.

    Hi Andrew, good luck on your journey to quit smoking. Whatever works for you is the way to go. Personally I had a really hard time quitting but after numerous fails I finally did. The eventual goal is to be free of any kind of smoke and it seems that you are well on your way and that’s the most important part. Good luck. Cheers.
  • AndrewCam, Western Sydney December 11, 2019 | 17:20
    Well done Safe2017. Keep up the good work.
    You can definitely do it.

    Happiness I was "Enough" a long time ago thus my last post....Thank you
  • AndrewCam, Western Sydney December 11, 2019 | 17:20
    Thank you for you support Rikki.
  • Pisces24, Central Coast December 11, 2019 | 20:48
    I haven't "attacked " anyone. I think you Ricki were abusive calling others animals. I am happy for anyone to give up Smoking however they do it. Get over it. Try and HELP other forum friends with compassion and support not abusive bullying. I'm starting to not like this Forum because of you and yours. Aggressive threatening and unsympathetic behaviour which is not in the he spirit of this Forum. I was happy with my interaction on this website. Unfortunately you Ricki and AndrewCam have made it a total negative
    experience. I don't need this now in my QUIT smoking journey. I appreciate all of the assistance I have received from wonderful caring friends. Thank yo so much. I would have NEVER got past Day 1 without you. I vce got a true underway of my cigarette addiction. I never explored the why before. It's not just then I c otine. I get it now.
    7 days for me is like 7 years. I've never thought th his was even possible for 1 day. I've always hada cigarette. Law a ys ALWAYS.
    NOW... look at me. Not going back t o DAY 1. Believing in the myself for the FIRST time in my life that I am a non smoker now... so all's not list my friends. You have saved me and I will be eternally grateful. My kids and grandkids hands parents a nd my friends thank you.
    So NEGATIVE Ricki and AndrewCam...... cant hurt threzten bully ir intimidat e ne...
    On the way to being as TRUE NON SNKOER.
    VAPE yourselves silly.
    I'm over your tirades

    Rikki I think "somebody" likes a drink ya know then jumps on the keyboard....WOW!!!!!
