Give Thanks For Your Freedom From Tobacco

KTC Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving morning and I’ve got a few minutes before I start my day which will be filled with friends, family, food, booze and football (not necessarily in the order). Thanksgiving continues to be my favorite day of the year. We get together at my parents home and celebrate. My family, my brother’s family, my folks and my in-laws. We do three turkeys: oven roasted, smoked and fried. We have a purpose for this… we’re together, don’t have to travel and can just enjoy one another’s company. Everyone takes home multiple meals worth of leftovers.

Last year thanks to COVID most of that was scrapped. My in-laws didn’t attend. We only did two turkeys (no smoked) and we didn’t even enter the house. We carved the birds in the garage and went home to eat. This year we’re returning to normal, but I think we all know things are far from normal as we’re two years into this pandemic.

Because of that I’m more thankful than ever today. I’m thankful for my and my family’s health. Like so many others we were hit with the COVID bug and thankfully we recovered quickly. That’s not something to be taken lightly… This thing has effected millions of people worldwide and it has certainly affected our KTC family.

Last week KTC celebrated its 15th anniversary of helping people quit chewing tobacco. This past year we’ve rolled out new social media and a new platform for our community.

As I sit here on this Thanksgiving morning I realize how thankful I am for the KTC community. These people have helped me and continue to help me quit this terrible addiction. These are not my “internet friends” – these are men and women who I talk to, interact with and have met face to face.

This afternoon as I stand outside guarding a fried turkey, I won’t need to sneak away to have a dip.  I won’t need to “run to the store” to grab some last minute item that we clearly don’t need.

If you don’t have a quit of your own to be thankful for this year, I’d like to invite you to join us. We can help.  And this time next year you can sit back and reflect on what you’re thankful for… and you can include your quit.

Happy Thanksgiving friends. Enjoy your day.
