If i had been here 2 days and there were 5 people reading who were hanging on by their fingernails looking for any excuse to smoke, any excuse at all....and say all five of them went out and bought an ecig...and 4 of them to go back to smoking within a week because they had stopped unlearning smoking and gone back to what was familiar....and the other person managed to hang on with the ecig but couldn't put it down....
does my right as an individual to say what i want supercede the good of everyone else?
there's such a thing as gullibility people.
think about the whole.
all this name calling did not prove this persons intention either way. the guy and his coworker did not prove they were not here to push the ecig. all they did was f this place up and perhaps ruin a number of quits.
and i'm not saying he was an ecig salesperson, i am not accusing him. there have been plenty here who have tried however so, how do we know who is who? isn't the damage already done by the time many of you figure it out?
i never attacked this guy. go look at his message board. go look at my message board.
and you and you and you let it happen.
you and you and you and you. think about the whole.
advice from people saying, "i know you can do it. you are strong!"
blanket advice from people in the same boat as you (and i mean people who are at the same stage as you and just as succeptible as you? and they smoke the next day?)
support is telling people what they need to know and what they need to hear and preparing them for what they are going to experience. just how much do you think someone with the same limited experience is going to be able to do?
the smartest thing you new quitters can do is ask questions.
some of us actually have the right answers and know where your head has to be to quit.
You are just kidding yourself if you think it does.
Think of all the time you've wasted to get your fix.
The things you've let go right over your head because you had to have one.
Your childs home run, key mnutes you missed of the dance recital or school play.. the conversation you should have finished instead of walking away and smoking. irretrievabe, irrepaceable moments of life.
And, all the time you wasted thinking about that next cigarette.
