What to write that has not been written or discussed on the 977 HOF speeches (as I write this) already penned by quitters before me. My story is not much different than scores of others on here, but here we go.
I found KTC back in July 2015. July 8th actually, one month before my wedding day. I created a username and password but never joined a quit group or posted roll. I simply read some of the information found on this site and figured no problem, I can do this. Well I only made it 11 days and I was right back at it. Yet another failed attempt to add to the pile of “temporary stoppages”. Fast forward to March 9th, 2016. I was ready to finally quit for myself (not for my wife or anyone else). I was finally ready to admit it was an addict and that I could probably not do this on my own. I had been back to KTC and done quite a bit more reading and research on quitting and the KTC method. I flushed the remnants of that can of Copenhagen Long Cut and joined the 2016 June Platoon. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Here we are 100 days later and feeling pretty good. Am I cured? No, not by any means. But I have made my promise and I am quit for today and God willing I’ll be back to make that promise again tomorrow.
I also want to send a personal Thank You out to Chihua33! He is a fellow quitter (June 2015 HOF) and a fellow Wisconsinite. He reached out to me early in my quit and has been posting his support daily with me and the rest of the 2016 June Platoon. Your support was greatly appreciated and I look(ed) forward to seeing it on roll every morning. It was another incentive for me to post early and E.D.D. This was more helpful then you probably realize, so again Thank You!
To those of you who are still on the fence about quitting, it’s time to get serious and join KTC. The KTC method is tried and true and I can truthfully say I would not be nicotine free today had I not stumbled in here 100 days ago. So take the plunge, come on in the water is fine! You will not regret this decision.
As the title states the 100 day (HOF) mark is only the first hurdle in this race, not the finish line. Stay vigilant and I’ll see you on roll in the morning.
