I often hear people talk about how they weren’t strong enough to quit on their own. They sing the praises of a support group that has helped them succeed and then essentially apologize for using the group as its intended. I’m here to tell you that it’s absolutely OK to get help quitting chewing tobacco. It’s absolutely OK to seek out a support group that will help you quit dipping.
I belong to one and quite frankly I’m damn proud of my involvement. I don’t think that this makes me a weaker person cause I couldn’t do it on my own. Let’s face it, if I could have done it on my own I wouldn’t have been a can per day addict for over 17 years. If quitting was easy we all would have done it years ago.
Sure, I might take it to the extreme with all the KTC gear I own but it’s only cause I’m PROUD to be a part of such an organization. This support group has helped me do something that I wasn’t able to do on my own for years… it’s helped me quit. And stay quit.
Don’t apologize for bettering yourself – embrace it.
