I don’t understand how people can go back to the can after such a long time. Once you recognize that your addiction is something you’ll never be “cured” of it seems to me that it should be in the back of your mind. My quit nearly killed me and I remember it often. I talk to people who are just now quitting and I see what they’re going through. I don’t WANT to totally forget what it’s like to quit. I’m never going through that again.
I had the pleasure of meeting some fellow quitters this weekend. We had an absolutely wonderful time having a few drinks, talking about our quits and just getting to know one another. This is just another way that I’m continuing to make my quit stronger – I’m already accountable to them every day based on my roll call… but now that I’ve met them face to face I’m never letting them down.
As I said in the the title… I just don’t get it. I’m working every day to ensure that I never do.
