A few of us have tossed around the idea of starting a supportive self-help group for those in the period of our quits referred to as "No Man's Land" : a time in the quit when folks are very susceptible to relapse.
After giving this much thought, it was decided to start out with an open blog post, inviting those in this period of their quits to post on the blog each day as to how things are going for us: A spot to share what's working for us and a "safe place" to post our struggles.
The intent will also be to follow up with NML "members" who don't post for a few days to see how they are going; our attempt to not let anyone fall between the cracks.
It's also though that by doing this on an "open" blog vs. a group, that we may also receive supportive and helpful input from those better established in their quits, to urge us on.
If enough should become active participants, we could then re-visit the group option.
For those not familiar with "No Man's Land" I have included a blog post written by Ron Maxey in 2002:
Hope you will join us!
