The name is Fin. I came across this website 100 days ago not knowing what the future predicted. All I knew was that I wanted to quit chewing and be able to support my fiancé, Kate, without having an argument over everything. And I already know what you’re thinking, no, I did not quit for her. I quit for myself and had quite the cancer scare to steered me straight.
Anyways, I wanted to thank you for providing not just a website, but almost a second family in which guys like myself can come and beat this addiction. My relationship with Kate has never been better. Before I made my way to this site, we were always arguing about my addiction, and her telling me about how our kids are going to grow up without a father if I didn’t quit chewing. My family is bound for cancer. Both my grandparents died from cancer. My grandfather died of Lung cancer and my grandmother died from Breast cancer. Even though the two are very different, the common word is cancer. I told myself, “ah, i won’t get cancer. Only the unfortunate ones get that..”. Obviously I was wrong and naive, it can happen to anyone.
I have never been happier spending my time with Kate. She’s been 100% supportive and has been there for me at the worst times. Luckily, the livechat was available for me to use and could take out the rage on fellow quitters instead of deteriorating our relationship. Kate and I have shared more laughs these past 100 days than we have our whole 7 years together. It really is crazy to think about how 3 months can change one’s live forever. I went from going through 2 cans a day, 50-70 bucks a week to being that much richer and happier. I was a little hesitant when I first started, but now i’m very happy with the decision I made.
I’m sure you have heard this thousands of times, but thank you for building a family in which we can all depend on each other and know that someone will always have our back. Thanks for everything that you do to keep this site up and running.
