Yesterday seemed like any other day, until I realized the date. Thirteen years ago I said I’m done. Having to be cautious that I didn’t leave tobacco juice on my precious baby girl’s cheek every time I held her through the holiday, losing teeth, hating to look in the mirror, all the other reasons you here every day – but then I had some guy named Cliff tell me to do it for me and no other reason, and to do it one day at a time.
We’ve lost brothers along the way, and I’m sure each of them has a 1,000 reasons in their head to justify their cave, but I have 13 years of reasons to never go back.
Thank you to everyone who has helped along the way, whether you realize it or not. To the rest of the original 7 who believed we could build a better place to help people save their lives, to the guys that took so many of us under their wing – BBJ, ODT, Cliff, and 100’s more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
If you haven’t quit yet, there’s no better time that today – this hour – this minute – no more excuses. My brother’s in ACORD all made fun of me for not pulling the plug two days before New Year’s Eve – but F them… I just got a head start on them.
Happy New Year’s my brothers. Find your reason now, and live it every day to stay quit.
