2008 HOF Speeches

Never Again – What Does It Take? Find It and Get Quit

KTC Quit GroupsAs I sit here and type this HOF speech I can honestly say I have confidence I am done with dipping forever…

However, this is my second HOF speech…my first was as ForMyKids (FMK) with the CCU October 2006 group.

But this my last HOF speech, and it took me a long time to get back here and I cannot imagine going back to being a slave to this ever again…

So, what will I do differently? Well – I’ll keep posting here…and I’ll keep reading the struggles of those who are in their early days so I do not forget what it took to get here.

For those who have written their HOF speeches before me, it’s real easy to start thinking “well, I’ve got it licked…don’t need to post anymore…I’m too busy to post…etc”. After HOF 100 days…It’s easy to lose the enthusiasm and think “this is all there is to it?”. It’s easy to forget just how painful and tortured we felt early in the quit.

Well – don’t forget. Post here everyday and stay involved…

Ok, time to thank people…

First, I thank the lord Jesus Christ for giving me a chance to clean up my act before this stuff killed me…

Second, I thank my wife for supporting me even when she was skeptical I could quit again…

Third, I thank chewie for this web site…you have helped save many of our lives…

Fourth, I thank the men/women of this site for humbling themselves and helping me to humble myself and admit I am an addict. I thank the April 2008 group for encouraging me to do this.

Ok – well, I’ll say the same thing others have said. If I can quit this – anyone can. I was as addicted as anyone could ever be. But you have to be “fed up” and just determined before you can actually do it…

Does it take cancer? Your kids crying? Your wife looking at you with disgust?

What does it take? Find whatever it is and get in a quit group…
