44 Started, 13 still here on 12.03.10

All of us with a star are people who have said they are still on their quits. If you have been missed off the list or see any errors please let either Zozie or myself know. Thanks and well done all of us, even those that folded, at least we tried.

Good luck to us all for the future of our quits. Thanks to Mixxy thats about 25.58% - great news. xxxx Jude 75 sorry I have not been able to find any record of you joining De Novos?

Well done to the 13 that are still here:D

Its very intresting to keep track of everyone and see how well everyone is doing:D

Thanks for your post Ace, yes it did take a while to get all the info together, but if you go to the page of your social group there is a bit where you can click on and find details of all the people who have signed on with your group and their dates. I did it in Word and kept it on the same page, adjusted in size so I could see the two screen at the same time.

I put up a post on the forum, calling all De Novos every so often and then keep a check on who is still with us, or not, as the case may be. As you say, its very interesting. On a very rough ball park figures sort of an idea, looks like about 1 in 4 makes it with their quit at the end of about 4 months? Not great really, is it? But then again, it is great for those that are still with us. :)


Purely out of interest- of the remaining 31 people- what proportion do you know have relapsed and what proportion have you not had a response from/ don't use the boards any longer? Just being nosey...

Pols I dont know the proportion of people who may no longer use the site or for whatever reason did not respond to the request for information. I can only go by the statistics I was able to gather and just use them as a very rough guide to the situation as a whole.

I think its quite interesting though, even though its not in the least bit scientific, just as amateur trying to bring together a group that all joined on their journey in November 09.

Wishing you well in your quit Pols, best wishes and thank you for your interest. Vivienne.


All that said though Viv, i saw '1 year post' only recently from someone who hadn't posted since the 3rd month of their quit and that was nice to see.

Some folk just use the forum to get through the awkward first months, and find they are more successful going it alone afterwards, but the good thing is folk are still quit.. and make a success of it.

Love your list though, took some work to collate that many names i reckon.



Thanks Jase and yes I do agree, maybe some people prefer not to be on the site. I think its still interesting to have a rough idea and do you or does anyone else know the official stats of how many start off and how many are still quit, after say a year? I would love to know that figure. Well done on your quit Jase and best wishes to you :)
