Well, with the help of some very tough and very concerned people on this website….I made it to my 100. I have been using nicotine, specifically Copenhagen, for close to 25 years. Never really wanted to quit, never really had to quit….still didn’t have to quit when I did. Except for a nine year old boy who calls me daddy asked me what kind of gum I was chewing and it really sunk in to my thick fucking head that he was watching me do the things I was doing. Not to mention that about 5 years ago I had a biopsy done on my cheek that came back negative for cancer. I quit then for 2 1/2 years. Then started back for no good reason at all…just stupid. I got it in my head that I wanted to quit for good. A friend of mine told me about KTC and told me if I was serious it would help. Well, I tried it and well I think everybody knows the story from there on. I am not going to lie, it was one of the hardest things I have done. But I am 45 and I want to live to be as old as I can…I want to see my son grow up and get married, have kids of his own and not to mention get to be a granddad one day. I struggle with the addiction everyday, I work around people who dip everyday right in front of me. I talk to them and tell them to get on here and start there journey to being free of the bitch. But the final decision is theirs…I can not make the decision for them. Or for you if you are reading this and trying to decide what to do. i will tell you it was the damn best decision I have made in my life to make myself feel better, to keep my son away from it as best I can, and to try to help others not to keep doing something that is gonna kill you eventually. I value my life and my son’s life…….What do you value????????????
