I went looking around the net to find places that supported e-cig use, just so I'd know. I came across a popular quit smoking forum that had next to nothing on it about e-cigs. I decided to join and tell of my experiences thinking it might help someone.
That turned out to be a bad bad bad idea. I posted my story in an area of the forum made for that exact purpose.. to tell how long you had been smoke free and how you did it.
I seem to ran into a bunch of quit smoking purists because I am getting attacked at every turn for my e-cig usage. They see the nic usage and the vapor and insist that I am still smoking. I don't know if they have a problem with reading comprehension or what but I seem to keep repeating the same things that they just don't seem to get. It's like the info simply don't register with them.
Have a look at the thread here if you want to. QuitSmokingMessageBoard.com • View topic - Over 2 weeks Smoke Free - How I did it.
The saddest part is that they claim to want to help others quit but will not suggest e-cigs it seems if their lives depended on it.
I just wanted to share something that might help others, not go there and fight with these people but I am getting frustrated. Perhaps someone has some ideas on dealing with these types of people?
