So… there are. Three of you on day two. That’s great, you have brothers on the same day. You know there are at least two people in this world dealing with the exact same stuff you are. Here’s a little piece of advice for you… if you plan on succeeding, and by that I mean QUIT, for good…. then you better get to know each other quickly. Your chances of success without the other two are whole helluva lot slimmer. Take two minutes to exchange phone numbers in PM’s right now. Make a deal with each other that you will not cave without at least calling the other guys first. Give them a chance to talk you out of something stupid.
You see that is called a plan. A cave plan. If you don’t have one, I’ll bet that at least one of you won’t see 50 days. That may seem cynical but it’s the cold hard truth. You will think of a million reasons why “just one” is OK before this is over with. Put your machismo to the side for a minute and reach out for some help (in the form of a phone #). I know…. all of you reading this are shaking your head wondering “who is this guy telling me what to do”. The answer is… just a guy… a guy who very early on heeded the simple advice of making a plan that included other people just like me. In the same exact situation… and ya know what? Total strangers have become my best friends and saved me from me. I could not have walked this road without these twisted ass people.
So, this post does 2 things.
- Reaffirms my quit by letting you know that I appreciate you.
- Let you guys just starting know that it can be done…. with a little help from some friends.
You may think this is hokey shit and quite honestly, I did too at one time… but if you read this post a couple times and let it sink in, you’ll see past your own walls…and you’ll send those PM’s.
Make a plan. Now… your life may depend on it.
