It took me a while to do my hall of fame speech, but for good reason since I really wanted to reflect on how I got here, why I stayed here and how it helped me quit dipping. For all of those out there that don’t know me, I am a 21 year old college student that also works as a roughneck offshore during my summers and dip is all that I could think about 24/7 and used to be at least a can a day. I do a lot of hunting and fishing as well, where almost everyone dips during those activities, which in turn brought me to this site for help.
One day I was kayak fishing for bass on a local river, while having a dip in “enjoying life”, until I saw a father and son fishing on the side of the bank. Some feeling rushed over me and made me worry about how dip could keep me from doing that with my kids in the future, what if I got cancer, what if I lose my jaw. After those thoughts I chunked that dip as far as I could and when I got home I researched “quitting dip” and there was KTC. I browsed around the site thinking it wasn’t for me until I started reading the “Hall Of Fame Speeches” just like you are now. Reading the speeches made moralize that others have had the same addiction as I had and realizing that they kicked its ass, from that day I started posting role.
If you’re on this site reading for motivation to quit, your in the right place, having people holding you accountable to your quit will make you very successful you just need to stay strong. If your reading this deciding if you should start quit the can, do it for me and do it for yourself, its for the better I promise. You might think to yourself “this is dumb” or “my friends will make fun of me” about quitting, trust me I was there, all of my friends in college talked shit about me quitting dip, always trying me to dip again. If I can do it, so can you brother.
I’m Posting this day 141 of my quit today, loving life as much as I did before and knowing that one day I will be fishing on the bank with my kids.
