When I joined this forum, I thought that it would be a good place to learn about the phenomenon of quitting smoking, to share my own experiences, help me with my recent quit, and to help my girlfriend with her own efforts to quit.
Firstly, I would like to thank the many who have supported me and appreciated my support.
What I didn't realize is that apparently there are some members of the club who feel that the only way to be a worthy contributor is to suffer along with everyone else and agree with (or ignore) everything that is said. For me to challenge someone's negative attitude toward their ex-smoking friends, or to point out that the need to see other people suffering in order to feel good about oneself is not a good thing, that resulted in me being publicly lynched. A lesson learned.
I'm not struggling with my effort to quit, and I don't see why I should be scorned for having an "easy time." In fact, that attitude came as a result of realizing that I could be dead or die soon enough if I don't change my lifestyle. It could just as easily happen to you. I hope not.
From now on, I shall try to refrain from making any comments when I see attitudes that anger me, but please don't expect me to say "Baah!" either.
My tip, as it has been before is to take responsibility for your own quit!
