Many here share things they don't share anywhere else.
They are heard and comforted.
As we face the emotions of others experience's, we begin thinking, "how would I feel, what would I do if I was in that situation?"
We are humbled when we realize how smooth our own lives are in comparison.
The community makes us think, helps us learn to feel again.
It's a big part of learning to live without smoking.
That's why it works.
