Looking for some feedback here. As you know, we swap out the header on our forums from time to time (thanks to forum member Keddy for all his hard work making that place look awesome!).
The current header contains an image of the grim reaper, a can of dip and the following phrase:
“Cancel Your Date With Cancer!”
There have been some folks who have raised concerns about this particular header due to the image of the dip can that it contains. Their contention is that they’ve spent so much time and effort trying to get away from the can that they don’t need or want the reminder when they come to the forums.
Way back in the day, we had dip cans as part of our header and we removed them for similar reasons.
At this point in my quit I’ve got absolutely no problem with it… but I could make a case that a younger quitter (in quit days) may have an issue with seeing the can as a reminder.
I can only speak for me. At this point I don’t mind the reminder. In fact, I applaud it. When people say “The only time I think about dip is when I’m on the forums,” my response is, “So what? Is that bad?”
Personally I don’t EVER want to forget. I see this as just another reminder… but I can see the other side of the argument as well.
What are your thoughts on this header? Too much? Not enough? Let us hear from you!
