    This site has obviously taken a plunge - however, flavius is working to fix it. We have a chain email full of suggestions from veteran quitters to get things going in the right direction. The membership will get going again someday - hopefully soon. There are many styles of quitters out there. If quiet and calm works for some people then go for it. They typically have a post count equal to their number of days and then they vanish. I, personally cant sugar coat addiction. People in AA don't do it either. Because if you sugar coat it you are basically giving someone a free pass. If someone is lurking around this site then chances are they have tried to quit on their own multiple times and failed. There is nothing wrong with trying to jumpstart someone posting up a day one by trying to get them to be HONEST about their addiction. So for anyone poking around the site that hasn't joined yet, please do so. There is a nicotine free life out there for you that you can earn. It is worth it. You will be supported, this I can promise.

    Actually, yes. In 04 I was a lurker, I then joined the site and proudly posted that I was planning on quitting on some random date in the future. A gentleman veteran named Hoopity explained to me in no uncertain terms that I was a dumbass and that I need to pull my head out of my ass and the dip out of my mouth right then. I did so and that was the beginning of a 10 year quit. I'm back here now on day 11 because I drifted away from the site and lost the accountability. Reading is fine but accountability is key...some people need a little nudge to begin their journey. Not getting a single new member in a week isn't a glowing testament that all's fine. Having one person in a quit group (such as mine) isn't an indication that all's fine. Time to try something different.

    I quite often see 6-8-10 Guests looking around the site at any given time. It's great that you all have found the site and are looking around. It's great that you are reading about the experiences of past quitters that have preceeded you. There's one problem though, you are not using the site to its fullest extent, you are not using the site in such a way that increases your chances for a successful quit. It's simple, register to the site...it's fast, simple and free. Once you're registered, quit dipping and find your group. If you're having troubles, just ask and you will be helped. Each day after your quit, come to your group and post a roll-call. If during your quit, you're having unmanageable cravings or some other struggle, come to your group and post about it, you'll be talked through it. The whole premise of the site is accountability and being a Guest doesn't give you that accountability. You have to register, post roll in your group and ask for help if/when you need it. You're here for a reason, you want to quit, you're thinking about quitting. You're a Guest for a reason too, you're afraid to commit to saving your life. You're afraid to possibly start something you might fail at. You know you need to quit but are afraid that you're not strong enough. We have ALL been there. There's a million excuses why not to get your ass in here but there's one reason to...you're killing yourself if you don't. Register now and lets get this quit started.

    Well, I spend part of my work day in my office in front of a computer. I'll be able to use some of that time stirring up the shit around here. People naturally go to places where it's fun, where they can laugh and feel safe. As you know, quitting is hard and scary and stressful...coming to a place where you're surrounded by people going through the same things as you and are having some fun and laughs is bound to bring people out of the shadows. I'll do whatever I can to help...helping others helps me and adds a greater level of accountability to my quit.
