We have a saying here that I first heard from my friend indingrl.01.06.2011:
Take what you like
And leave the rest...
to be helpful is our only goal!
We don't all agree, In fact we agreeably disagree on many, many things.
For example: once an addict always an addict.
Or you have to want to quit for it to work.
Or NRTs vs. Cold Turkey vs. Smart Turkey.
Take your time to learn before you quit
vs. Quit Today! And fill your quit time with knowledge.
Commiserate with a relapser vs. Tough Love.
Well, this is just a small sample of how we each have our own opinions. And I can understand how this might be confusing to a newbie but in actuality, it's this diversity that makes our Community so dynamic!
The final word is yours! It's your Quit Journey. It's your LIFE! It's your Recovery - which means reclaiming yourself and starts out by not following anybody else's opinion more than your Own! By listening to various points of view you know what your options are. I have a saying - if you don't know that you have a choice - well, you don't! This diversity gives you choices!
Own your Quit!
