Wow, 1,000 Days quit in a row and 100% posted every damn day. I almost can’t believe it. Thank you to all of you that have supported me and kept me going. I only hope I have shown you the same support back.
What does it mean to have reached 1,000 days quit? It means that I am still an addict and having the accountability of this site and its users is what is keeping it away. Too many people have reached this milestone and decided they no longer need the accountability. How many of those have we seen coming back in posting a Day 1? One is too many.
The process to be quit here is very simple:
- Wake Up
- Post your promise to be nic free for today
- Keep your damn word
- Repeat daily
It’s really very easy. Why so many fight this tried and true method to come up with “a better way” is beyond my comprehension. Maybe they just are the type of people that must try and change everything they see to something more to their liking. Well, too bad. This is how it works here, if you can’t quit the way it is laid out, then the door you came through to get here swings back the opposite way. Go find you a group that panders to your whims. It ain’t gonna be here.
As the days keep piling up and nicotine’s grip keeps loosening ever so slightly, it is easy to get caught up in life and miss a day of posting roll here or there. No big deal, right? Wrong! Missing a day of posting roll leaves you open to suggestion. “Oh, I forgot to post roll this morning, therefore I have not promised anyone I won’t use nicotine. Just one dip won’t hurt. I can keep counting tomorrow.” So, now you have had a dip and the next day you go right back to posting with your current count. Now, you are lying on roll. Or maybe you do feel guilty and you post a Day 1 and must start all over again. Or, worse yet, you just say fuck it and keep on dipping and completely disappear from the site all together. It happens, probably the first scenario more than we know.
Our imperfection causes us to be able to lie. Our conscience is what allows us to lie. This site is built on the premise that we will tell the truth when posting our promise. One would hope that we would be truthful in all our interactions here, lying about something else and getting caught in the lie throws doubt on your roll posts whether they are completely legit or not. Food for thought.
Well, I’ve said enough shit for one day. I’m going to go get me some steak and BJ.
I’m very proud of all of you who stick with it everyday and show nicotine that we can beat her. Thank you again to all of you that have supported me. I don’t know where I would be without all of you. I only hope I have shown you the support you have shown me.
On to another One Day at a Time.
