According to Health Day News, smokers who engage in social networking may get more help and support when trying to quit. "Smokers who turn to social networking sites focused on quitting smoking form strong supportive bonds with their like-minded peers, a new study reveals. And these cyber-connections boost the odds they'll kick their habit." read more

I absolutely agree.....I would go to a non smoking chat and talk with others that were struggling and some that had been quit for years...I felt like I could not clik on that site if I had smoked....lol.  And I liked going there and chatting.  I got a lot of support from some very nice folks....and was blessed to meet a few of them in person over the years...
