Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind
word, a listening ear, an honest accomplishment, or the smallest act
of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
One of the special aspects of this particular site is the kind generosity of its' members - what Tommy has labeled Collateral Kindness! When we treat each of our members with respect even if we feel compelled to disagree with them or to gently help them change their perspective about smoking and quitting, we potentially could turn their life around - it's not an exaggeration to say that we could potentially save lives because smoking is deadly! When you write a comment, please read it with fresh eyes and see if you have expressed yourself in a kind and truly supportive manner or if maybe you are striving a bit too hard to be "right!" I know that we are a very diverse Community with only the goal of not smoking in common but that should compel us even more to be sensitive to and respectful of that very diversity! As one human being to another I wish you each a very successful and joyous Smoke FREE journey!!! Wasn't it Spock who said "Live long and prosper!" ?
