Killing The Can For 17 Years… and Counting

KTC 17 Years

17 years ago KillTheCan.org was ‘born’. On November 20th, 2023, KillTheCan.org will recognize 17 years of helping people break the bonds of their tobacco addiction!  As we’ve done every year since our inception, we’ll be having a one-day-only, site wide roll call on November 20th to help commemorate the day.

The celebration will take place right here on the site – in the comment section of THIS VERY POST!

KillTheCan.org has gone through some pretty significant changes over the past several years. It’s been two years now since we migrated the majority of our support and discussion to our DISCORD SERVER. This was a massive change and there were some (many?) within our ranks that were hesitant to make the switch.

With the benefit of hindsight I can confidently say it’s been a MAJOR success. We have seen more engagement and brotherhood than we had seen in years on the forums. In fact, every new quit group since January 2022 has been EXCLUSIVELY on our Discord server.

That said, our forums aren’t gone. Far from it. You will still find daily discussion and roll call there just like you always have. Our social media platforms (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / YouTube / TikTok) continue to experience huge growth and engagement all thanks to you. There’s support if you’re quitting dip around every coroner. You just have to look for it and you’ll find KillTheCan.org.

A word about social media… there was a time when I was hesitant to embrace it. There was a time when I really tried to force any and all traffic and conversation to the forums. And while that served us well for years, it’s just not the way things are in 2023. So… we’ve had to be where quitters are looking for us. That’s our mission. Provide support for people looking to quit dipping and quit nicotine. As the digital landscape changes, so will we.

A lot has happened in the past 17 years we’ve been helping people quit dipping. Here’s just a small list in no particular order:

  • Saddam Hussein killed
  • Barack Obama becomes president
  • The iPhone was Introduced
  • Bin Laden killed
  • Hurricane Sandy
  • The world’s first iPad
  • Ice Bucket Challenge
  • Rise and fall of ISIS
  • The Brexit Referendum
  • #MeToo epidemic
  • First photo of a black hole
  • COVID

Through it all, we’ve been QUIT. And no matter what the next 17 years bring us, we’re going to REMAIN quit.

17 Years of Freedom From Nicotine

As we’ve done in the past we’d like to commemorate the day this whole thing started. If you’re part of the KillTheCan.org family, please drop a comment below with your screen name and days quit. There’s nothing that brings us more joy that reading your success stories.

If you’re NOT a member… consider joining us. The accountability that we provide will kick start or reinvigorate your quit for years to come. There are a lot of people that look to quit dipping cold turkey over the holidays. This is a great opportunity to introduce them to the KillTheCan.org family and set them up for huge success moving forward in their quit.

Please leave a comment below to post roll and help us celebrate. I’m honored to be quit with you all today!

Barnabus, quit 495 days. I think I found KTC on Facebook so I’m damn glad you guys added social media to your quit domain. Thanks to all the seasoned vets that helped me get here and continue to help me. Thanks to the new folks that stumbled here and decided to quit with me.
