Denim, your quit story is amazing and super inspiring. Congratulations on over a year and a half and thank you for the support you've given me throughout this past year. You are amazing!
Here I am again tonight! It is therapeutic to get back on this ship that saved us and touch base with others. Things have been quiet today. I am still seeing people hanging out in the rain and cold. The memories of so many years wasted. We cannot go back though so I need to change my thinking. I am sad to say that I have been witnessing addiction to nicotine for 11-13 year olds. I have dealt with 3kids so far. They are vaping. The sad part is they are being punished however they are also suffering nicotine withdrawal. No services available yet for kids this young. It breaks my heart. Just like when we were young, the companies have targeted teenagers with their advertising. Parents seem shocked! I’ll say goodbye for now. Nice to “chat” with you again.
Thanks. It’s wonderful to see your message here and truly means so much to me. Your story is also amazing and inspiring. I’m sure it’ll help so many like us who didn’t succeed the first time they tried to quit. So glad you shared it with others. You are amazing too Blue! Huge congratulations to you too on your big day tomorrow. Can’t wait to celebrate that with you. We’ve supported each other and I’m so glad we have. Thanks. We got through it together. I remember when I joined and you were already here and offered your support. Look at this, we both have made it! I’m looking forward to seeing your beautiful and deserved key. What a roller coaster, but so worth it. I think you’re amazing too and... “YAY, YOU DID IT! GO BLUE!” So happy for you! Hugs.
P.S. Sent you a pm.
I agree, it is sad to see so many children doing that. Unfortunately, so many are. Not to mention the news stories around it. Some of them are horrifying. It’s a ____ shame. It is heartbreaking. I’m glad you were able to intervene with at least three of them though. Maybe it’ll be three more not doing it, we can only hope. Thank you for doing what you do and making a difference, but then I already knew how awesome you are.
