    What about a Facebook group for parties?

    Thoughts on a party thread?

    Good afternoon,

    Still dealing with health stuff here, just trying to adjust to yet more things I can't consume. Nic apparently being a major player in my cortisol problems. Looks like I'm going to be dropping down to 6mg soon, which is fine because lately I've been feeling over-stimulated with the 12mg I have now.

    Nothing else new to report, no life events to share. Don't have enough "oomph" to do much following, just posting here and there. Hope everyone has had a good weekend, it's sunny here and feels rather spring-ish.

    I'm just thinking we seem to have lost some friends because they quit smoking and feel out of place here now and some people looking for help think we're all nuts A thread for silliness and chat might bring more people to both threads.

    I feel kinda bad about not participating in the videos and such but the truth is I am usually browsing the thread while watching tv or when Cliff is still sleeping and I have my volume turned off, I very rarely ever watch youtube videos. The only time I ever watch them is for a tutorial. I just kind of stay away when the video stuff is going on.

    Ppl tend to fall away because this thread works and they stop smoking. I mention that because finding the right balance isn't always obvious. I see where you are coming from and agree, this thread should be attracting new vapers that are still smoking - yet at the same time, a steady diet of smoking related topics tends to make me want to smoke. It's been helpful to me to talk about minor frustrations and stresses since that's a reason I smoke.

    So IMO, idk. No everyone's into vids, not everyones into FB, not everyone deals with stress the same way. It might not even be a stress issue they deal with, finding an ADV or hardware or ... I'm trying to brainstorm and it's not working.

    I'm all in, I can provide a lot of silly, Thaya will be onboard, I am sure of that. you want me to start it? I can do it on Monday or Tuesday for sure. I was thinking of doing it anyway for the same reason, I didn't want people to be unsure of what was going on here. Can we do it in PIF? that is why I didn't start one, I wasn't sure where to put it.

    We all need a place to go for fun and relieve stress. I will be first in the Conga line!

    Default Still smoking support and chat thread

    We need to keep the social aspect of support. IMO that's very crucial to have a non judgmental place to vent, rant, or just feel at home. But it's also nice to have somewhere to just forget it all and be silly

    I'll set up a new thread soon and post a link. It's not like we can't have fun in both.

    I could try one on facebook, I have to see what I need to do, I also need to get a few ADMINS for it. Maybe a sponsor or two if we are lucky. I know a few that might help out.

    Someone needs to PM Lori and tell her where we've gone. Could Jazz take care of that?

    I think a repeated issue is the fact ppl feel they need to read all the posts before participating. There are days that could be 10 pages. A new person would've had to read 2,000+ pages. IMO that's a big issue. Idk if anything can be done about that.
