Hello Mar,

Due to privacy constraints, unfortunately we will be unable to transfer your data from the old Smokers’ Helpline Online to the new site, so you will be required to re-register for SmokersHelpline.ca when the new system goes live. Consider writing down your username, quit date, and other important information prior to the launch of the new system. We have shortened our registration process to a single page to make it easier to join.  

Hopefully this answers your inquiry.  Kyle, is here to support you further as well.

It definitely takes time to adjust to being a non-smoker, PeterMac, and its great to hear you have your family & friends supporting you through your quit.
Please feel free to continue to post as needed -this is a very supportive community that is here for you! 
All the best,

Sarah

Hi PeterMac,
 
Congratulations on 10 days smoke free.  You are definitely changing your life for the better.  I am glad you are taking your wake up call seriously.  I think that smoking is one of the most harmful things we could do to ourselves.
 
As time goes on, you are going to start feeling a whole lot better.  You will breathe easier, you won't get as winded doing simple tasks, and you will cough less.  And you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you were strong enough to beat this rotten addiction.
 
Keep up the good work.  You're doing great!

Hey Smobered Up.
 
I sincerely hope it will be easier to navigate, too. We have put a lot of effort into streamlining things as much as we can. One thing we are super excited about is that it is designed with mobile in mind! Over half of our visitors these days are joining us from mobile or tablets, so that was a huge priority for us.
 
As for timelines - we are launching this Fall, but we have to finish development and testing before we have a firm date. I'll just say that it will be soon, and if all goes well, VERY soon.
 
Cheers,
-Kyle-
