As Marty points out, Freedom's more senior members are likely not here posting and supporting the group's newest arrivals because of any challenge of our own. To the contrary, it's likely that the calm and quiet that now fills their mind is so soothing in itself that they can't imagine ever giving it back. It's likely that they want to help you see and feel what it's like to restore neurochemical sensitivities, to arrest your dependency and end the mandatory nicotine/dopamine/adrenaline roller coaster ride, and to smile as they watch each of you gradually learn to function comfortably in a world surrounded by the chemical that once controlled you.
I join Marty in sharing my awe and wonderment at remaining free these past five years. To be frank, in the early days I never would have thought it possible. Yes, except for reading about them in old posts, my own personal memories of the early challenges have all but evaporated. It's another important reason so many of us return here to Freedom. You see, we rely upon the dreams and challenges of our newest arrivals to help remind us of the amazing journey we've made.
Support truly is a two way street and although it may sound strange, we thank each of our newbies for helping us recall what it was like living and planning life around that next mandatory feeding. You may be lonely on your own but here at Freedom the benefits are mutual. Thank you Freedom. There was always only one rule ... no nicotine today, Never Take Another Puff. John (Gold x5)
