23 days

Postby LonelySmoker » Thu Dec 19, 2019 12:58 pm

I had an urge to smoke yesterday but I told myself it wasn't worth it. 10 minutes later I forgot about it.

I am so happy I didn't do it.

I had a little trouble sleeping last night.

But I feel better overall.

Congratulations on making 23 days - it's a great achievement ! In regard to posting on the forum it would be better to create a single thread and then add new posts to it instead of creating a new thread every time you have something to report.

Whenever a thread is updated it goes to the top of the list which essentially achieves the same result as posting a new thread.

Thank you.

I prefer to do it the way I’m doing it.

When I get to day 165, for example, doesn’t make sense to post on the thread “Day 1”

I do appreciate your input though.

Keep up the good fight friend!

Totally agree, maybe if he created a new thread every month, but daily is ridiculous. I reported it, we'll see what the mods think.

Fair enough but what will happen is that people will simply stop reading your posts. Believe me - I have seen this many times over the last decade or more on this forum. You are unnecessarily cluttering up the the forum which only annoys people.

Awful my friend.

Maybe withdrawal symptoms are partly responsible for your "it's all about me" attitude - maybe not. But you really should consider forum etiquette when posting content.

why not change the title of the post from " # Days" to "My Recovery Log" or something like that? then you can also easily track your progress and others contribution on your recovery too

Now that’s a great idea! Thank you Ashthewarrior. I will do starting tomorrow since I already posted today.


HDog, perhaps you could learn something from Ash. This is called constructive feedback.

You were already given constructive feedback, more than once. Thank you for not polluting the forum further. I look forward to the daily bumping of your thread.

So much negativity on an online forum for people seeking to recover.

Regardless, I still wish you well. I wish everyone well.

That’s exactly what I did at the beginning but you pushed back. It would seem that the withdrawal symptoms are also adversely affecting your memory.

In any case it’s good that you are now going to take my advice by not cluttering up the forum.

Actually I’ve decided to keep doing it the way I was doing.

It’s helping me recover.
