People who have failed over and over need to change their thinking. If you see a comment from an elder it is not meant to antagonize but to simplify.
We are also here for those who have never lost a quit or never tried to quit so please, keep that in mind. They have a right to not fail the first time nor be dragged down by everyone's excuses.
What we say is not meant to be harsh. We are here to help people quit smoking.
We know we can't help the arrogant ones. Some of them may get so angry they will keep their quit just to spite us. That's a win for us and them.
You see, whether you've quit 200 times or one time, everyone must get to the place of acceptance of not smoking to succeed. You can't be comfortably quit long term until you realize this.
We are simply trying to help you find it sooner.
