No Smoking Day

Touchy touchy!

I've been away for a few days (in a smoke filled environment - a casino - that hardly bothered me at all, except when a direct line of smoke would come to my face).

This morning, I'm trying to catch up on the new posts. Geeze, so many people are upset with so many others!

This one's mad at that one because s/he wasn't supportive enough. That one's mad because someone else has a different opinion of something. This one's not going to respond to that one's posts ever again. That one's tired of apologizing. This one's tired of people who post about having an easy time of their quit, because that's discouraging to new quitters who are struggling. That one's tired of people counting their days, this one's proud of the number of days, that one's too preachy, that one can't spell, this one has "cheated" and IS starting over, that one has "cheated" and won't even consider starting over.

I've got a headache! :)

I have no point here. I'm just overwhelmed with all the arguing and such that's going on at the moment. Maybe I'm just too sensitive today.

At least I'm not going to have a cigarette to calm down. :D

Makes life interesting

mmm! I know what you mean! I was shocked the first time I saw negative posts and arguing. However, I have now come to the conclusion that when you have such a broad range of people, different ages, gender etc,you will get disagreements. Even though they have something in common (quitting smoking) they all have different opinions and they are not afraid to voice them.:)

Hope you're well Derek, you sound it so good on you!

As for the forum, I agree with Shelly & Haze, people are people, just because they're stopping smoking doesn't mean everyone will agree on everything; this would be a bloody dull forum if everyone did! Also the written word does not always help in terms of tone..

Bear...you great big smasher you. You are confusing Dgee with DJC33 I think. Crickey. If only people would have run of the mill names like angry bear and Dippy Egg we'd all know where we were at :)

Sorry!

DGee, my sincere apologies, I did indeed get you mixed up with someone else with a D name, my age apparently according to the kids ......also I appear to have started a very surreal section of the thread! :eek:

Ha ha thank you DGee but I think my reputation for having a really bad memory has finally spread to the forum....the lads at work even get me to do things by telling me I've agreed to it previously, and because I can never remember I always do it, bless 'em :o
