Today is a rough one again. It's day 32 and I can't focus on work at all. I've got that feeling like my blood is boiling. Feels like the first few days again. Not asking for anything or making excuses and I have no desire to cave. Just posting to vent.
Vent away man. Post here, in your group or use the digits you've swapped with other quitters.

The Way I See Our HOF Speeches
« Reply #226 on: September 14, 2021, 06:26:55 PM »
I would like everyone here, especially those quitters who've made it to that 100 day mark but haven't written one, to go take a look at the Hall of Fame Speech page.

Done it? What did you see? I'll tell you what I saw. I saw 69 pages of speeches dating back to September 2018, and I'm betting that doesn't count any that may have been archived from older versions of this site.

69 pages of pain. 69 pages of misery. 69 pages of struggle. 69 pages of addiction.

69 pages of triumph. 69 pages of pride. 69 pages of accomplishment. 69 pages of brother and sisterhood. 69 pages of QUIT ODAAT.

The newer speeches have already been viewed over 100 times. Some speeches have over 1500 views. One Thousand, Five Hundred people have read them!

Who do you think are reading our speeches? Of course our Quit Group members are reading them. Certainly conductors and our outstanding supporters are reading them. We all like to read new speeches. They feed our quits. They strengthen our quit foundations. They remind us of how we felt when we hit that triple digit accomplishment. They make us proud of our quit brothers and sisters.

You know who else is reading these speeches? Yeah, you know. The man or woman lurking on the site. The person who desperately wants to quit but is scared of what's coming. The young guy who knows this habit he's had for just a few years is a stupid thing. The old guy who's been dipping or chewing for decades and of a sudden has just simply had enough. The woman who's been hiding a taboo addiction for years and is ready to stop hiding. Or the guy like me who got the ever-loving shit scared out of him by a lump on his gum and had to look in his sweet wife's eyes and tell her about it and see the fear that news bred.

We write these speeches for the brothers and sisters we have here at KTC. We also write them for the brothers and sisters we HOPE to have. You never know how your speech, no matter how simple, can reassure an addict on the fence of quitting to come on over to the side of freedom.

Write the speech. Post the speech. Live the speech. You may just change a life besides your own.

@bubblehed668 what's the deal with these poppers? https://www.killthecan.org/bubblehed668-grilling-up-some-freedom/

I always do my poppers with cream cheese/tabasco/cheddar cheese stuffing and then wrap them in bacon before smoking a few hours. I can't tell what's under those sausages or what type of sausages those are.

Anyone else got a go-to recipe for jalapeno poppers?

That is a small white onion, cream cheese & turbinado sugar blended in a food processor and piped into the peppers. The sausage is a cheddar smokie laid on top then wrapped in bacon.

Somewhere in the deep dark recesses of KTC there was an area for recipes and it was in there called ABT's (Atomic Buffalo Turds). I can send it to you if you'd like, let me know.

This is interesting. I love experimenting with poppers but never thought of sausage. May need to try this weekend!

KTC CHALLENGE

Want to get some additional accountability going? Want to meet some new quitters? Tired of a BORING quit group with nothing but roll call posts?

Here's a thought... use the TAG function. TAG someone, in your quit group (or any other thread here on the forums) that you've NEVER tagged before. Start a convo. Ask how their quit is going.

THIS place is about COMMUNITY. Some of my best friends in the world are people that I've met HERE... whether I've ever met them in person or not. Guys like @cbird65 and @bronc. Guys like @Samrs and @Big Brother Jack

You know how we've become such good friends? We talk. We've walked through the FIRES of quitting together and NOW our relationship has evolved into something MUCH bigger... but it all started cause we're addicts.

So... @Krreed8889 how you doing today? CONGRATS on 5 days of FREEDOM! That's a MASSIVE accomplishment and I'm damn proud to be quit with you today!

Chewie

@Kauffy !!! Congrats on that 1st Floor !!! You know a great way to celebrate ?? Come meet up with 40 or so of your Quit Brothers and Sisters at the Great Pennsylvania Quittogether Oct 1st - 3rd !  https://ktcforum.org/index.php?topic=17093.msg8720557#new

Congratulations @Kauffy! I have to say... I agree 100% with @Big Brother Jack here... the PA meet is an INCREDIBLE investment in your quit and not to mention some of the BEST times I've ever had as a quitter: https://www.killthecan.org/annual-pennsylvania-quit-together/
Ah, this could be the start of a good quitter vortex!  Meeting up with other quitters, in retrospect, was probably one of the keys to my successful quit.  In fact, just yesterday, a facebook memeory of @Big Brother Jack  popped up.  As it turned out, a few weeks into my quit, I had to attend a conference in Vegas, and I posted that I would be there, when Jack said he'd be there too and we met.  It was a game changer.  In that environment, a cave was almost assured, but knowing I was going to meet with a quitter in person made a huge difference.  We ended up having a great time hanging out, and next thing you know, I'm off to a quitter meet in PA to meet a bunch of bad ass quitters.  My accountability circle grew from my quit groups, to over 30 people I had met in-person, including @chewie and some dudes from my quitter group like @MonsterEMT .  We had a really great time.  Locally, a guy from Washington, @ZillahCowboy came down and met me at the St Paul Rodeo.  These were all key events that helped me stay quit.  Lastly, I was on the chat board a lot, where guys like @cbird65, @Franpro and @cmark were laying down quit wisdom and minding the craziness of us new quitters going on rants and talking about anything at all in order to keep from putting shit in our lip.  There were some great stories and fun times.  Get involved here.  It's key.

For some context to @bronc 's stories...

https://www.killthecan.org/bronc-zillah-cowboy-at-the-4th-of-july-rodeo/
definitely seeing a vortex on this tread...  Where to begin.  Chewie nailed it by getting outside of your four walls of your HoF.  The resources and members here are plentiful but you have to take the first step by 'opening up'.  Social media has escalated to vitriolic trolling and self promotion.  KTC IS NOT SOCIAL MEDIA.  The three tenants we share -ACCOUNTABILITY leads to BROTHERHOOD generates SUCCESS are critical metrics in the formula and cannot not achieved separately.  I have a KTC t-shirt with signatures of KTC'ers I've been blessed to meet over the years.  I have a long list of 'want-to-meet quitters who have helped me along the way. They're not just nameless faces behind an avatar.  They are people who have become close friends.   Open up, invest some time and this site will amaze you.  Some of my closest friends are 'guys I've met on the internet'   roflmao   By no means is this a who's who list but guys who have encouraged and challenged me along the way.  @30yraddict @hydro @FUCS We will not agree on 100% of things all the time but your quit will develop and you will begin to see other areas of your life you would like to focus on... baby steps.. post roll...keep your word... repeat tomorrow.
One of the most badass quitters around, @ChickDip is on my list of amazing humans to meet in person.  This lady is relentlessly faithful at posting on people's pages to encourage them, even years into a quit.  One of these days, it'll happen.  @brettlees is another amazing human, who came up to the Portland area for a conference and stopped into see me.  Next thing you know, he's a family friend and has attended some amazing family parties.  I suppose there is a bond that is formed between quitters, because of the seriousness of what we're doing and what we've done.  The incredible effort and time we've put into our sobriety.  Then there are the group of dudes that took the success they had with nicotine and applied it to other serious addictions.  I've watched them go from being amazing men to even more amazing men.  I think this journey, and the people we befriend along the way might be one of the most impactful things I've done in my life.  Nicotine addiction was a curse - quitting has been a huge blessing!  Rock on quitters!

definitely seeing a vortex on this tread...  Where to begin.  Chewie nailed it by getting outside of your four walls of your HoF.  The resources and members here are plentiful but you have to take the first step by 'opening up'.  Social media has escalated to vitriolic trolling and self promotion.  KTC IS NOT SOCIAL MEDIA.  The three tenants we share -ACCOUNTABILITY leads to BROTHERHOOD generates SUCCESS are critical metrics in the formula and cannot not achieved separately.  I have a KTC t-shirt with signatures of KTC'ers I've been blessed to meet over the years.  I have a long list of 'want-to-meet quitters who have helped me along the way. They're not just nameless faces behind an avatar.  They are people who have become close friends.   Open up, invest some time and this site will amaze you.  Some of my closest friends are 'guys I've met on the internet'   roflmao   By no means is this a who's who list but guys who have encouraged and challenged me along the way.  @30yraddict @hydro @FUCS We will not agree on 100% of things all the time but your quit will develop and you will begin to see other areas of your life you would like to focus on... baby steps.. post roll...keep your word... repeat tomorrow.

KTC CHALLENGE

Want to get some additional accountability going? Want to meet some new quitters? Tired of a BORING quit group with nothing but roll call posts?

Here's a thought... use the TAG function. TAG someone, in your quit group (or any other thread here on the forums) that you've NEVER tagged before. Start a convo. Ask how their quit is going.

THIS place is about COMMUNITY. Some of my best friends in the world are people that I've met HERE... whether I've ever met them in person or not. Guys like @cbird65 and @bronc. Guys like @Samrs and @Big Brother Jack

You know how we've become such good friends? We talk. We've walked through the FIRES of quitting together and NOW our relationship has evolved into something MUCH bigger... but it all started cause we're addicts.

So... @Krreed8889 how you doing today? CONGRATS on 5 days of FREEDOM! That's a MASSIVE accomplishment and I'm damn proud to be quit with you today!

@Kauffy !!! Congrats on that 1st Floor !!! You know a great way to celebrate ?? Come meet up with 40 or so of your Quit Brothers and Sisters at the Great Pennsylvania Quittogether Oct 1st - 3rd !  https://ktcforum.org/index.php?topic=17093.msg8720557#new

Congratulations @Kauffy! I have to say... I agree 100% with @Big Brother Jack here... the PA meet is an INCREDIBLE investment in your quit and not to mention some of the BEST times I've ever had as a quitter: https://www.killthecan.org/annual-pennsylvania-quit-together/
Ah, this could be the start of a good quitter vortex!  Meeting up with other quitters, in retrospect, was probably one of the keys to my successful quit.  In fact, just yesterday, a facebook memeory of @Big Brother Jack  popped up.  As it turned out, a few weeks into my quit, I had to attend a conference in Vegas, and I posted that I would be there, when Jack said he'd be there too and we met.  It was a game changer.  In that environment, a cave was almost assured, but knowing I was going to meet with a quitter in person made a huge difference.  We ended up having a great time hanging out, and next thing you know, I'm off to a quitter meet in PA to meet a bunch of bad ass quitters.  My accountability circle grew from my quit groups, to over 30 people I had met in-person, including @chewie and some dudes from my quitter group like @MonsterEMT .  We had a really great time.  Locally, a guy from Washington, @ZillahCowboy came down and met me at the St Paul Rodeo.  These were all key events that helped me stay quit.  Lastly, I was on the chat board a lot, where guys like @cbird65, @Franpro and @cmark were laying down quit wisdom and minding the craziness of us new quitters going on rants and talking about anything at all in order to keep from putting shit in our lip.  There were some great stories and fun times.  Get involved here.  It's key.

I'm good .. got a promotion to supervisor at work yesterday.. still chewing on the fake stuff waiting it out ... hope everyone is good. Proud to be quit with ya'll today.

@Krreed8889 - BRAVO!!! Congrats on the promotion my man! Keep using that fake as long as necessary. I used about a can / day for about 220 days or so before I didn't NEED it any more. It's a tool in your toolbelt! Keep on rocking!
