I'm curious if you see an influx of traffic on this site after Jan 1?

Ha! If course I did. I would imagine most smokers have at one point or another. :)

Well our only two New Year's day quitters are kazza and 0zone. And I'm very impressed that they kept their resolutions :) And Gtrz turns one year on the fourth of January :) And to round out the week looks like Beautiful_mind turns one year on the 7th :)

It seemed like last year (Jan. 2017) was slower at the beginning than I remember past January 1st's .... but then it gained some momentum and snowballed and lots of folks quit.  The holidays immediately preceding New Years always have seemed slow to me in my time here.

Like Marcie said, I do remember last New Years to be kind of slow at first but it picked up.

 

There are quite a few January quitters on my less than up to date list of anniversaries, including Bassman, addictedbassman, Nelski, and JustaGuy. 

 

I am hopeful many will decide to join and quit smoking for good.  It can be a busy month.

Membership began to pick up speed 2 weeks into January 2017 and got even busier the third week. It peaked the beginning  of April and went downhill from there.

Wasn't that about the time the board got unstable?

About 4-5 weeks before when it peaked.

Let me my rephrase that......the forum membership peaked the first of April, which was about 4 to 5 weeks before the forum began to crash.

I quit in late Jan. 2017 but had nothing to do with a New Year's resolution or the turning of the calendar. Quitting wasn't even on my radar in early January. But, January and February are both pretty brutal months for the flu and other respiratory illnesses and that's what finally motivated me to give quitting a try.

 

No matter what the reason or when, I would highly recommend quitting to any lurkers!

The process of quitting smoking doesn’t end with the last cigarette. It’s not quitting itself, the real key is staying quit!
