One of the advantages of these forums is the fact that you're never going to find someone that you know here (it would be a strange coincidence), so the anonimity and the fact that there are people willing to help is one of the good things about these forums.
On the other hand, I don't think this applies to social neworking, such as facebook, twitter, myspace and etc., obviously because the people there are not willing to help and they're just there to be completely narcissistic and fake. For example, I've had my FB account deactivated for a few days and I've noticed my stress and anxiety are lower now.[/quote]
Just really wanted to make the point that [b]quitting cigarettes[/b] was (I think) what pushed me over the cliff from a depession & anxiety point of view. I was smoking almost 40 a day when I quit. Perhaps I went the wrong way about it by just stopping outright and I certainly wouldn't recommend quitting this way if your depressed to start with.
As for Facebook I won't go near the place any longer. The whole Facebook experience just served to compound my problems what with people telling me how good lfe is and bragging about what they have and where they have been!
I very much believe internet forums can help those in distress - I also know users should proceed with caution.
