[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]Sadly, I am bringing this one up today because a member did smoke. I always prefer to knock up this thread when this occurs, to illustrate how infrequently we have to pull posts from members who post a relapse. We never want to leave an impression to readers here that we hide the fact that relapse can happen. We make it clear in our rules that if a person posts a relapse they will instantly lose posting privileges and that the post will be removed. The person involved was nice enough to notify me by email, honoring our relapse policy of not posting on the board.
Members who relapse cannot join up again, but they still have access to all of our resources to help them to try to quit.[/font]
Additional note here:
The member had started a new string early this morning saying that he or she was four days into a quit and needed help. I responded several hours later before realizing that he or she was not a newly joined member, but rather a member who joined back in 2009. As per our relapse policy, I removed the new string.
