and on Sept 10th 2006 I lost my little Brother Cliff in an instant … On the phone Saturday busting each others balls and less than 48 hours later getting the call that he was gone … My Life Changed that day and through it all the thought of starting to dip or chew tobacco again never crossed my mind … I had been Quit for such a long time leading up to that day … 4756 Days to be exact … All with only the Support of my Brother … One thing that he did leave me though was an Open Chat Room and unbelievably a core of strangers that took me under their wing and watched over me during those first few months ( I’m Proud that to date ive been able to meet and thank over 100 Quitters and I’m just getting started ) … Today I posted 8052 days … One Day at a Time … I’m No Legend just another Quitter that starts fresh every morning … This KTC Community is what is Legend … Embrace it and lean on those who stand with you everyday and I Promise you will learn everything you need to Quit everyday as I have for the past 9 years since Cliff past away … Think about what you post and if its genuinely helping someone … Be Supportive , Be Honest and Be Proud of the person you are becoming … I look forward to meeting as many Quitters as humanly possible and shaking all of your hands that help me keep my Brothers memory alive …
