Stay connected

Blog Post created by JACKIE1-25-15 on Oct 21, 2015

I have been on this site for 9 months (updated, 3 yrs  3 yrs 11 months and 12 days) and when I read that someone has relapsed, one of the first things I look at is how long it has been since that person last posted or wrote a blog. Usually, it is a very long time and I usually have never seen the name before.  They also admit that they should have stayed connected to this community. So I am figuring to myself one way for some of us to keep our quit is to stay connected.  No, I am not saying all day everyday blog, post but this community is a lifeline that should not be forgotten.  There are people here readily available when support is needed.

 

There have been times that I did not have anyone to express what was going on with my quit.  Whenever I posted I got a response. Those responses can help you see things in a better light.  Just doing that let me know that everything would be okay.  It is reassuring that I have people to connect to when necessary. 

 

I have seen a post that state they don't use the site much because it makes them think of cigarettes. For me, it helps me to forget and has become a daily routine for me to visit my friends via Ex-community.  If this site has been beneficial in your quit wouldn't it be wise to stay connected?  Just saying. 269 (1192) days smoke-free.  Take what you can use an leave the rest.
