2011 HOF Speeches

With a Little Help From My Friends

Lazytrader avatarI am lazy trader and I am quit. I didn’t really think about what I was searching for on google when I typed in “quit dipping skoal.” I was just curious. I know now that was my way of looking to quit. I never would have known that had I not read almost every inch of this website. It’s almost mandatory on the road to quit, it’s the quit bible. When I was in the fourth grade I saw an Earl Campbell commercial on tv and he dipped skoal and I wanted to run the football just like him.

My father was our school football coach so #33 was his favorite running back and if he did it I wanted to do it too! Thanks earl! Im 39 and I did about 2 cans a day. I factored this into my budget when I joined the army. Money was never an issue because I loved it more than any woman. Chewed through college and fancy job. Spit in every hotel room water cup just like all of you. Airplanes, trains, and anywhere you could imagine. I chewed at the Vatican. Forgive me father. That was crazy. I could not do this any more. I needed a way out and I didn’t know how. I googled it and there you were. I jumped into the chat room and asked a couple questions and read for a couple days then planned to quit. I quit and it was one of the scariest things I have ever done as a man. I have to tell myself almost every hour of everyday you don’t chew anymore.

I got involved in this website and have made better friends here than I have in real life. People I know I can count on and lean on when I’m in need. I have also pitched in and did my part in helping a brother in need and it was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. I know if it were me, my brothers would be there for me too. That goes far beyond some quit group. This place is my home and I am honored to be a part of this community. One day I was thinking about Earl Cambell and wondering what he was doing now? I was still chewing and he was still what?

I kept in close touch with my quit brothers and this helped me every day. Just knowing I could call or text them made it easier. In the short time I have been a member I have seen this website grow and pass a million post and help with all kinds of addictions we all face. This place is a one stop shop for getting yourself tight if you need it. Most of us do. If your chewing that stuff what else are we doing? This place has been a home base for me. I can honestly say that posting role is the single most important thing you can do. I know I didn’t believe that at first but learned quick. This website saved my life. I thank you my family thanks you and society thanks you. You have made us better people and for this we thank u.

Special thanks
