Quote from: Nolaq
Life throws you some shit sometimes. Are you ever ready for it? Things are going along fine and then, boom. Car breaks down. Boss lays you off. Your daughter got denied her student loan. Your mortgage is overdue. Your wife is leaving you. Your mom dies.

It has been said many times before by people who are far more articulate than I, so I will paraphrase - It matters not how many times a man gets knocked down; what matters is how many times he gets back up. I am getting back up today. I will get back up tomorrow. I will continue to get up. That's who I am. That's who my kids think I am. That's who my wife needs me to be. That's who my parents raised me to be. I will continue to get up because God has given me that resolve.

My addiction will not help me stand. It will not help me get up. For those of you that have been following the drama in the Springer family, I have been dealing with even more than I have shared here. The one thing is, I will not dip to 'make it all better'. I will not dip to 'ease the nerves'. I will not dip 'just to get through this'. I will not dip.

To all the incredible quitters here that have sent their prayers, kind words, and support; I cannot begin to thank you all. Words cannot express my gratitude. From the fine group of quitters in June 2010 to everyone that PM'd, texted, or emailed. I couldn't list you all, because I'd forget someone and I don't want to do that.

If you're a newbie and thinking about quitting dip - stick around. You're in for the ride of your life. The question is, "Are you ready?"
Five years ago today I lost mom to Cancer. Cancer sucks.

Never Again. For Any Reason.
What is your major malfunction?!?!?!?!

Throw that can away and post roll. I was a can a day Kodiak abuser for 19 years and I've been clean for the past 68 days. This program works. I tried quitting on my own and when I was on the brink of caving, I found this support group. It can work for you too.

With the new year approaching, I have been thinking about my quit journey.  Can't believe it has been 5 years now!!  So many things have changed in my life during the past 5 years.  Things I didn't think I could ever do without a dip I now do without even thinking about it.  There are no words good enough to explain the freedom I now experience....that I never even knew possible.

The information on this site is invaluable.  This information has been collected and shared by quitters.  I have spent the past couple hours reading HOF postings and words of wisdom on this site.  Many of them made me teary and brought back so many memories of my very own. 

People helping people...that's what it's all about.  Congratulations to all of you who are quit,whether it's Day 1, Day 100, 5 years, 10 years..whatever it may be.  The community, information available, camaraderie, accountability....it works!

If you're thinking about quitting, are scared, nervous, doubtful....just jump right in, introduce yourself, get phone numbers and quit.  Don't delay any longer.  This method works and you'll make great friends along the way.

Happy New Year!

Thanks Rayne....love hearing from guys who have quit long term.
Thanks Rayne! Good to see you!
