    Hello Tammy. We are a pretty tame bunch so do not expect too much trouble. The science behind addiction has come a very long way and the support Alberta Health is valued. Thanks to all our past moderators.

    Hi Tammy, and welcome. I am thrilled we have a moderator. We're a pretty smart group, but we sometimes need your education. I think the newbies get a lot of help from a moderator. I know I did. Thank you so much for joining us:) Congratulations on 2 days quit. This new job you have will be helpful to you as well. I look forward to joining you on your journey. I also look forward to meeting your colleagues. Please join us in our pledges each day.

    Hi again Tammy. I was hoping you could do me a favour. We use to have a man named keener in here with us. I think he had problems navigating the new platform of this site. I would really love to have him back with us. Could you please send him an email, and tell him that I would love if he would email me? You will have to give him my email. If he mails me great, and if not then at least I tried. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Hi Terry, That’s kind of you wanting to reach out and support Keener.  I will follow up with you directly in the next few days to make these arrangements.

    Hiya. Day 2. Shared a cig with SO tonight. 1/2 cig. My mouth was gross, my throat remembered that sting - like a long lost enemy - not good. Oh and I smell. It’s okay though. This too shall pass. Still needing to find the right cessation aid for me!
