Quit Blogs

New Quitline website and blogs coming soon.

Hi Quit Whanau!

We wanted you to be the first to know that in the next couple of weeks we are going to launch a new Quitline website including an updated blogs experience.

Firstly, don't panic: all your old blogs, supporters and badges will remain the same. However, the pages will look slightly different, so it might take some time to get used to.

So - why are we telling you?
Well... while we swap over to the new site, both the Quitline website and these blogs will be unavailable for up to 12 hours. Sorry for this inconvenience, but the Quitline tech goblins need time to move their pixels and code around the cyberworld. Rest assured we'll be back as soon as possible with a shiny new website for you all.

Improvements to the new website include:
- A completely refreshed look and streamlined functions
- An experience optimised for mobile phones (finally!)
- Better member functions and a simplified sign-up experience

The exact timing of this new website launch is not known yet, but we expect it to be very early in June. We'll try and update you closer to the time.

Thanks - The Quitline Team

Day 19

Wowsers I am seriously considering stopping in at the dairy on my way home from work and buy a packet of smokes. In my wisdom I thought it prudent I blog instead. Good idea perhaps? I am strong but some of these waves of cravings are whoppers!

NOPE and ODAAT arghhhhh

Oh no you don't CW. Your first instinct to blog is so much better.
Those cravings might be whoppers.....but you've already proved that you are stronger, and have what it takes. Remember that first week?
You need to shut this down. Right here. Right now. Fill your head with whatever else.....but do NOT start negotiating with the nicodemon.
You drive right on past the dairy, and start planning what you're going to do this weekend.
You got this Hun. And we've got your back.
Stay strong. NOPE, ODAAT, 4D's. That's what's needed.

Have a coffee instead. You wont die if you dont have a smoke. Nothing bad will happen if you dont smoke.
