Please don't think badly of us!
We know that we fully understand the intent behind a number of well meaning and commonly used recovery mantras. But as smokers we were lied to by so many for so long (including ourselves and our own rationalizations) that we now start with just one rather simple question - is it true?
From pseudo placebo clinical trials to store cigarette flavor ads suggesting lungs have grown taste buds, we're not here to villify or make anyone feel badly but we must continue to seek truth. One of the neatest things about this group is its rich history of re-examining its own beliefs and never being afraid to make public amends when wrong.
Breathe deep, hug hard, live long Freedom!

| We like things being written here at Freedom to have real meaning. We don't want people reading things here that really are not true. If you have ever traveled around the Internet support sites for smoking cessation you would be amazed at how many people write that smoking is no longer an option only to be smoking a few days later. It becomes quite apparent that smoking was always an option for these people as it is for all of our members too. |
So we just want to make it clear that smoking is indeed an option for any ex-smoker, just not one that a person would normally choose if truly considering the implications that would go along with it.
