Needed Support

It’s funny but I came on here to get some support in my quit and while looking round and reading the posts which I was advised to do I have come to realise that I will get no support on here as the majority of the members seem to spend all their time slating of each other.

This is the only forum I have found up to now so if anyone knows a good site that offers support to a struggling quitter I would be grateful for the address.

    Hi Minx,

    There is support a plenty on here usually - I do agree there do appear to have been some "issues" lately, but these are pretty rare. I have had nothing but good support in the month i have been on here, and hopefully helped people too.

    Keep reading/posting, you will get help when needed

    :)

  • Well, you do have a point but only to an extent. With a mix of people in here these things unfortunately happen. :( But it's only a small percent of folk and the flare up was pretty recent, hence the posts being about it atm.

    There are however plenty of others around who want to offer support as well as get it. Your choice :) The idea of people coming on here and not getting the support they should is not good, or reading posts and thinking the support is not available. It is :) Just a bit hidden currently but is there.

    To advertise other Quit Smoke Forums/Sites on here I believe would be bad practise but I'm sure there are some who know of some that will pm you.

    Minx ......

    You know what you are right and i apologise to you. Normally this site is terrific and to be fair all the quitters are good people, very supportive and normally not so self obsessed including myself, so please accept my apologies again, in return i will at least get back to focusing on my quit and try to support and offer any advise i can give. Hopefully tomorrow when you log on here things have returned to normal.

    Wish you luck with your quit Minx and please don't hesitate to ask any advise as i am sure there are quitters on here to help.

  • Hi Minx

    This site offer loads of support but there are a lot of politics at the moment. Its human nature unfortunately but I for one would never have got this far without this place.

    Apologies if you have come in at a bad time...I am sure normal service will resume shortly.

    Well done on getting this far

  • Support for Minx

    Hi Minx,

    Really surprised you haven't found support. Everyone has been really supportive towards me....Stay on this forum, you'll get through it I am sure. We're all doin' really well starting on the road to quitting smoking. It's the best thing any one of us will do in our life!!!

  • HI Minx

    I know what you mean but I am just trying to ignore the agro and concentrate on reading supportive stuff. We can support each other early on. Don't let it put you off, it's good to identify with others at the same stage.

    Keep strong!

    Catherine :)

  • Hi thanks to all of you that have come to wish me well, was a bit stunned to read so many wierd things but ok will give it a go have made a list of things not to read, and will stick to the no smoking bits, thanks again weekend was rough but feel bit better this morning.

    Thanks again will try and get on later.

    Hey there,

    Don't quit young minx, well only only the fags anyway, I’ve been on here for 3.5 months now, and this is the only falling out of members I’ve seen this far… I shouldn’t worry too much, just ignore it and it will go away soon enough promise.

    Bad vibes never last for long…. Especially with all of us good vibey folk about the place….. pop into the general section and have a go at joining our happy conga dance.

    Big Hugs xxx

  • Hi, There arent many times that i've seen the forum fallout and i've been here over a year. I think some of it is human nature and i'm sorry if its been an issue for you. We are generally a supportive bunch but if you ever need more help then please pm me. I dont get on often at the weekends but will always respond to a pm xx

    Hi Minx :)

    Sorry you haven't had support and I just found this this morning as not here evenings

    You've arrived while the forum is going through a rough patch hun but well done on your quit so far

    Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

    Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

    You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathising with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

    Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off whyquit.com and woofmang.com Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

    This link is good for the psychological part of quitting whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Sympt...

    Post often to let us know how you're doing, to rant, rave have a moan whatever you like pretty much anything goes on here OK

    Love
