As I sit here on day 200 of my quit. I’m finally sitting down to do my speech. I have now been 200 days without what I once thought was my biggest enjoyment. Oh how I loved to dip. Copenhagen was my brand. An I loved it! A can a day for 22 years. I was like everyone else. I’m 10 ft tall and bullet proof. Well thank God I came to my senses before it was too late. I’m not going to sit here an lie and say the first 30 days didn’t suck. Cause it was hard I mean damn hard. Everyday got a little easier though. I just kept plugging away staying quit for each day. An really before I knew it the first 100 days were up. Now I was a HOF like the others before me. I felt proud but still had my doubts. I wanted more proof. So here I am 200 days in my quit. My doubts are erased. Like a quote from Opie Winston himself…..”Brother I got this”.
So let me share what I have learned so maybe it will helps someone else out. There is no secret pill, patch or drink. Not a damn thing that will help your quit. That fake snuff is a crutch that needs to be thrown away as soon as your big boy panties are on. First you have to come to the realization you are in fact and addict. Then tell yourself this………. I QUIT FOR MYSELF. I HAVE THE WILL POWER TO DO SO!. Then never pick that nasty CANCER causing shit up again. Join your brothers in quit for your month and KEEP YOUR DAMN PROMISE to them. Post everyday it’s easy and only takes a few minutes a day. It’s that simple. Why continue to use a product that kills 1/3 of it’s users? Trust me tobacco has claimed the life of both my parents. Both in their early 60’s. That’s too young!!
Hope My little HOF speech helps. If it helps one more come to their senses it would be awesome day for us that are no longer slaves to the can.
