About Bonfires


Bonfires are “virtual parties” where members of the community come together and celebrate their quits by “throwing in” their unsmoked cigarettes since their quit date into a virtual bonfire. New Bonfire events will be announced in the Celebrations & Events section of the community. Bonfires are opportunities for members to celebrate the success of everyone’s quits together and build a sense of community.


How to Participate


Bonfires are organized by an established, active member of the community. The organizer for a specific bonfire will create a new event in the “Join a Bonfire” space of Celebrations & Events. You can join a Bonfire by clicking on the “Celebrations and Events” tab.



From there click on the link for the latest Bonfire and join in the party!



  • Post a comment to the discussion by noting the number of your unsmoked cigarettes since you have quit (this information can be found on your )

  • Post additional comments with links to music, pictures of food, and any other fun activities to liven up the “party”
  •  Examples of posts from a past bonfire are below to help get you started!




At the end of the designated time for the bonfire, the organizer will add up all of the unsmoked cigarettes for a final tally for that bonfire and share it with the group.
