Title: Sponsored ads at this site
If ads ever show up at this site, please know that Aimoo is in control of these ads and their placement and getting all proceeds, AskJoel, Freedom from Nicotine, and WhyQuit.com's management team and participants are volunteers and not a single one of us has ever gotten a penny for the work we do at these sites, either by any kind of sponsorship or by any kind of donation by anyone.
Even if a sponsor showing up is an organization like the American Cancer Society, Lung Association or Heart Association, we in no way are endorsing them or any of their views when it comes to smoking cessation.
If anyone ever has the idea that they should donate money to any of the “sponsored sites” because of the work they do on smoking cessation they should probably find a better charity and a better cause to work with. Money put toward smoking cessation efforts by the major organizations of the world are basically aimed at promoting NRT and other pharmacological products—very little is put toward doing the real education that is required to help the masses to quit smoking.
These organizations may do good work on other fronts, and we are not telling people who have been helped by these organizations not to donate to them for the other work they may do in prevention, research and services to patients, but if the motivating factor for doing a donation is the for the work they are doing on smoking cessation through sites such as ours, we’d suggest skipping the donation.
As for products or services that show up on the board below that are non-smoking and non-quitting related, we don't endorse any of them. If a tobacco company ever shows up as a sponsor selling any kind of tobacco product or if a pharmaceutical company ever shows up as a sponsor with any kind of mention of a so called cessation product, we beleive that they are trying to sell you a product or service that is quite worthless and possibly dangerous to people’s health and to their quits. The only thing that a person has to “buy to” quit smoking is to “buy into the concept” that to quit smoking and to stay free from nicotine forever is to simply stick to a personal commitment to never take another puff!
