Trust the system!
I honestly didn’t think I’d ever be writing one of these. It took me a little bit longer than I expected to find the words and then a little longer than that to find a way to put them into words that would (hopefully) make sense. Hence the reason its coming 30+ days after my 100 day mark.
At the very beginning I struggled hard with my quit. I knew that I wanted to quit, but at the time I told myself it was just going to be a temporary thing just to prove to my wife and myself that I could stop anytime I wanted too. I quickly learned that there was no way that was going to happen. After being here and making it the first 20 or so days with my brothers I realized just how strong the brotherhood was here. I knew then there was no way in hell I could let my quit brothers down.
I have my faults trust me. I was not a good quitter in the beginning. I was mad at the site almost daily. I was always telling my wife “The only time I think about chew is when I’m on this damn site posting roll”. I deeply considered stopping posting. I knew there was no way in hell I could just stop posting though. So my plan was to slowly disappear. Just post later and later in the day, maybe even miss a day here and there. I even stopped responding to the daily text from my fellow quitters. No one would notice one person missing right? Boy was I wrong. I was inundated with private messages and text messages daily! Quitting was definitely not a priority for me then and looking back now I realize how unfair it was too all my brothers. But trust me, the vets did not let me get away with it. I had my fair share of battles with them. Many of them did not go so well and I’m sure I burned some bridges but in the end I know it was worth it because here I am now 130+ days quit and I’m so damn proud of myself and I’m even more thankful for everyone one of those guys who called me out! I’ve been combing through the new quitters groups and it’s crazy to see what these vets go through and a daily basis. They are putting up with 100 other quitters just like me bitching about how busy their days are and not having time to post. You and I know it’s a lie.. WUPP it’s not hard!
Trust me, THE SYSTEM WORKS! Wake up and post your promise every single morning and keep that promise for 24 hours! That’s all you have to do! 24 hours at a time is be a man of your word! ODAAT
Thank you to everyone that got me to where I am today! Me, my wife, and my 2 kids thank you so much!
