Wow. I am just now hearing of this. Haven't been around in a while. I hate to ask something already asked I'm sure, but does anyone know what happened to our "invisible man" ??? I thought he was pretty young. In any case, He always had quirky, funny posts and he was great to have around. RIP, jwg !!!! You made a difference!!

I'm sure others have messaged you with this information, but if you will read these two threads, it pretty much tells the whole story, in his own personalized way but no holds barred.

I'm sad to see that this thread has been "unpinned" 

 

I thought we had it forever.

Know in your heart that you will NOT blow up or explode into tiny pieces if you don't have a cigarette. You might feel like a squirrel in a coffee can trapped in your own skin occasionally, but you won't blow up... and the feeling will go away pretty soon. -marciem

I am so very sorry for the loss of JWG for all his friends and family and his friends in this support group.

I have just been reading through this thread, and his posts and his story and I can tell you it's just hit me like a ton of bricks.

I will never smoke again. :(

I hope he is in a happier peaceful place and I hope he knows his story will and has changed peoples lifes for the better. xxx

JWG was weird, I liked that about him, I remember when Skip died, and honestly JWG and Skipper were not pals, but if either of them had of wanted to smoke and posted about it they would have been there for each other, despite the kinda mutual dislike they had for each other.  JWG reached out to me because Skip's death was very hard on a group of us here, JWG was always my pal.  We did not used to have to like each other and play peachy peachy happy happy all the time but we all supported each other in fighting this insanely hard core addiction.  I hope you all still get that.  I hope you get so real with each other that you can dislike someone and also realize that they might be the one to save your ass or make you feel better when you lose a friend.  JWG did that for me.

 

We are gonna meet but we waited to long.  I regret that JWG.  I really do.

 

To the members I know who we have lost:

 

Donna

Ralph

Jona

Kris

Lena

Bill

Skipper

JWG

 

You saved lives before you lost yours.
