This just occurred to me. “Currently Being Moderated” pops up willy nilly it seems for no reason at all on our responses to blogs and discussions on here. It could be a one word response, it cold be a multi-word response. Our Company Manager has explained that whatever the Jive platform spam settings are - are kind of a mystery. Even to him. And that’s to protect not only the proprietary nature of the Jive platform, but to ensure that certain knowledge doesn’t get into the wrong hands. The object of their game in computer moderation modules is to stop spam in it’s tracks. And a very good thing that is. Having been on this site since it’s inception in 2008, I’ve seen a lot of Chinese muckboot scammers on here. No they weren’t called muck boots - help me Dale???? But makes total sense to me. A spammer control robot that protects us within the community is obviously a good thing. Until you’ve been a witness to the amount of spam happening here - you won’t have a clue. Trust us that know - spam control helps. AND, sure it also hinders in certain instances and can be annoying. But robots aren’t perfect. Thank god. Neither are we.

 

Which really brings me to the point of this blog. And if you’ve read this far it means you’ll see it.

 

Are you currently moderating your quit? Are you blocking the excuse spammer in your mind? Do you HAVE a filter in place? Have you even given thought to such a filter?

 

If not - DO. You need a ‘pop up’ in your head that says “this content is being moderated.” And it’s being moderated by the ‘common sense’ receptors in your brain. No such thing, I know, by gee I wish there were! We need to find the trigger filters, the craving filters. Not the ones that allow them in, but the ones that block them. We need to use what’s between our ears to MODERATE our addiction.

 

And we do that by educating ourselves, educating ourselves not only about the addiction, but our particular relationship to it, our own triggers, our own excuses.  Education enables us to become our own moderators.

 

As an 11 year quitter, I think maybe I have developed my own excuse spam filter. I don’t need to moderate much at this stage of my quit. But when a red flag of a craving comes upon me - I definitely do. I’m not in constant “current moderation stage” at this point on my journey. But we all need that check and balance in our quits. Whether it be our first week, during No Man’s Land, or 11 years later. We need to have our own personal quit Company Manager that is currently moderating and managing our quits.

 

Quits don’t happen by themselves. They take constant attention. Are you currently moderating your quit?

Anybody seen hide or hair of Sharon?  I sent her a PM four days ago, but no word back as yet.

ELDER'S LIST

Posted by Giulia Champion Jun 18, 2017

AS OF April 1, 2019

Total 368

 

 

 

 

 

This is a compilation of members who are part of the 6% club - those with a ONE YEAR QUIT or more who have not taken one puff of a cigarette since their quit date.  A very elite group indeed!  Those who are active Elders,  (i.e. those offering support on a regular basis) will have a smiley face  beside their names.  If you are active and don't have a smiley, let me know.  

 

Newbies -  this is for you.  Every one of these people has been where you are.  And every one of them became a successful quitter.  YOU CAN TOO!   Check out their blogs.  Read.  Learn.  Do.  Nothing makes us happier than adding a new Elder to the list!

 

 

Please note:  If you relapse (even one puff) you will be removed from the list until you have achieved another 365 days smoke-free.  NOPE means NOPE. 

 

 

I will attempt to update it as often as I can.  Any errors or if you've been omitted by accident, please let me or smorgy8513 know.    What an amazing group!  

 

 

 

(NOTE:  You can switch from alphabetical order to chronological order simply by clicking on the Quit Date heading.  It acts as a toggle.  One click for alphabetical one click to go back to chronological or visa versa.)
