My name is Pat. I am 33 with a beautiful wife and 2 young boys. My back story is the same as everyone else here. I am addicted to nicotine and wanted to quit. In the last 113 days I have learned:
- I am an addict
- I made the right decision
- I can control addiction
- Nicotine sucks
- Withdrawal is the worst thing I have ever experienced
- I only have to quit once
- Nicotine has no purpose
- Healing takes time
- I can shit solid
- Some people will always get on your nerves
- Your kids won’t listen any better or worse
- Nothing around you will change
- I thought I was pretty tough now I drink sleepytime tea to help sleep
Quitting is no joke, it took everything not to lose my mind. I didn’t struggle with typical cravings, my biggest issues were anxiety, fog and lack of sleep. Still affects me today. I recognize each for what they are and move forward.
Hitting 100 days was exhausting. I was physically and mentally depleted. Sick and tired of being sick and tired is the best explanation.
I joined KTC 66 days into my quit. This was probably my lowest and needed the support. I was willing to do whatever it takes to stay quit. Even talk to a bunch of strangers. I didn’t care what happened as long as I stayed quit. I didn’t think dip would help but honestly didn’t know what would if anything could. The absence of nicotine was the only thing different. I hated it and was never going back.
KTC family THANK YOU
The support from 2 minutes after registering till now have been unbelievable. I was bullied into posting roll for the first time and will forever be grateful. One day at a time works. I am not the most active poster but have read and read and read. The good, the bad, and the ugly stories kept me going.
I want to thank
My two boys
Redwood for keeping the group
Cen2 for the texts
