2009 HOF Speeches

Thanks KTC – QSXtreme – AustinCEvans’ HOF Speech

KTC PendulumOK so Hall of Fame Speech…. Well, first I’d like to thank everyone for the congratulations and support. I, like many of you have tried time and time again to quit dipping snuff, I was a can a day Grizzly Natural Fine Cut man, and failed time and time again. Once I actually convinced myself that I had been quit for 3 months because I was chewing Levi Garratt….. and THAT was not dipping. I have tried to do it with the support of everyone around me, like telling everyone in the office that I am quitting, only to fail in front of them. I have tried the ninja quit, where I just stop and don’t say anything to anyone, problem there is that no one knows so everyone still does it around you and you never stop craving. But this time was different, it had to be.

About 2 years ago I got married to a gorgeous wonderful woman whom I don’t deserve. About a year before the wedding I told her I quit, but didn’t have the heart to tell her I failed because I didn’t want to disappoint her. Well, she found out and was understanding but made me swear to be honest and to give it my best try again. So I tried again, and failed again. This was April 2007, and again I didn’t tell her for fear of her disappointed stare. Fast forward to May of this year, I don’t know why I caved so easily, but for some reason when she found a piece of the nicotine gum that I had been using to get through the weekends when I couldn’t find a way to get away for 20 min. I just caved in and admitted everything, and guys I was afraid she would leave me this time, not for the dipping but for the lying. For the 2 years of sneaking behind her back dipping on the crapper, at work, while “Running up to the Hardware store”.

Anyways, to wrap up a long story I because of all of this I finally decided it was time to quit and thanks to this site, all of the people who post on it, and all of the advice everyone has given me I have made it 20 times farther into this quit than any prior attempt and I KNOW that this time I am quit for good. Thank you all again for the help, Good luck to the October, November, December and January quitters. PM me if there is anything I can do to help you guys out. And remember to take it one day at a time.
