The GoBlue Way – A Quitter’s Memoirs

GoBlue avatarNew quitters or if you’re contemplating quitting:

Joining this website and deciding to FINALLY quit tobacco is the BEST decision I have ever made in my life. I (like you) have tried to quit on numerous occasions, and the support and accountability gained from this website are what made the difference, and I’ve gained new friends here that I know I can call anytime at all, and they will stop what they are doing and pick up the phone if I’m in need… and I’d do the same … hell I’m PROUD to do it. It’s the least I can do.

My story is similar to a lot that you’ll see on here. I started young, hid it from many people, made a mess in my car and on clothes, spent way too much of my HARD EARNED money, disappointed my child and wife, disappointed myself. WHY? Why do something so SELF DESTRUCTIVE. There is absolutely nothing good about dipping, it was all a myth that a deceptive little nicotine whore wove into my thoughts and attempted to make it gospel. My eyes are open now, and I’ll never close them again.

Special thanks to Ansaka, a fellow Wolverine fan, and someone who has helped me to stay quit during this journey. Thanks to Stretch for turning me on to this site and setting me down the path of enlightenment. Thanks also to ProfessorPinch, Pista, and of course SamCat!

I thought I’d do something special for my HOF speech, so here it is. Below are the lyrics to “I Will Survive”, with the entire November 2009 HOF group inserted. I really hope I didn’t miss anyone, it’s a big group. If you sing it like the song goes, it’s great haha. The names are mostly in order of quit date, with a little shuffling for cause. ENJOY!

I WILL SURVIVE
———————————————————————
First Fungohitter was afraid
Pista was petrified
Kept thinking Kmemrm could never live
without Nodiak by his side
But Beaver95 spent so many nights
thinking how BigYank did him wrong
SamCat grew strong
PaulB36 learned how to carry on
and so ComingBackDown’s back
from outer space
Enough just walked in to find 3dmother here
with that sad look upon his face
ProfessorPinch should have changed his stupid lock
Ansaka should have made CowChip500 leave his key
If GoBlue had known for just one second
THE NIC BITCH would be back to bother me

Go on now go … walk out the door
just turn around now
’cause NIC ain’t welcome anymore
wasn’t NIC the one who tried to hurt US with goodbye
you think Kranich would crumble
you think Jlnichols1500 would lay down and die

Oh no, not Fiet42
He will survive
as long as Skully knows how to love
Biggie knows he’ll stay alive
SCM’s got all his life to live
Snoopy’s got all his love to give
and BigJake will survive
Selbo will survive

It took all the strength JasonLongley had
not to fall apart
kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of Wareagle’s broken heart
and Kcff spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for himself
PlasmaTrout used to cry
Now Catfish holds his head up high
and you see JResse
somebody new
Snowrdr’s not that chained up little person
still in love with YOU (NIC!)
and so ColtsFan74 felt like dropping in
and just expect Sjfdmicp to be dip-free
now WoreOutScout is saving all his loving
for someone who’s loving he

Go on now go NIC… walk out the door
just turn around now
’cause you ain’t welcome anymore
wasn’t NIC the one who tried to hurt US with goodbye
you think we’d crumble
you think we’d lay down and die

Oh no, not I
Mds1207 will survive
Roger64 will survive
as long as Cnathan knows how to love
He knows he will stay alive
WE’VE got all OUR lives to live
WE’VE got all OUR love to give
and WE’VE survived
WE HAVE survived!

Thanks again to everyone for helping me with my quit, and I will continue to post roll here and help anyone that I can. It’s been an honor quitting with you all!
