Day 1362

It just dawned on me this morning as I was driving to work that I no longer own any vehicle that I ever chewed tobacco in.  To the person that has never chewed tobacco this may not seem like a big deal.  But, to those of us that have wasted immeasurable hours trying to vacuum out the endless amounts of dried up chewing tobacco dust from the cracks and crevices of our vehicles it is nothing less than a monumental realization.  In my 30+ years of chewing I never was able to figure out exactly how that shit got literally everywhere in my truck.  And now, I don't have to worry about it.  And as an added bonus, none of my current vehicles have that unmistakable "chew cup left in the sun" odor that never completely went away no matter what I did.

Day 1306

Been a while since I have posted in here. 

By my calculations I have saved at least $5,000 since I quit chewing. My estimate is that I would have probably purchased somewhere between 1300 and 1500 cans in the last 1306 days if I hadn't made the decision to quit.  I always use the conservative "one can a day" assumption when I post my estimated savings every week in Big Savings Wednesday, but in reality I probably would have chewed closer to 1500 cans.   

Over the last 3 years I have used the money I saved to buy things that I probably would not have purchased if I was still buying chew.  It was a conscious decision from the beginning to use the money I saved as a reward for staying quit. So, every 100 days I give myself $400 to spend on whatever I want.  I have bought everything from a drone to a new weed eater to adjustable control arms for my Jeep.  Last week I bought a small Pellet Grill for my BARn. 

It amazes me to think about all the money I threw away over the years on tobacco.

There is really no point to my post today.  I just realized this morning that I hadn't posted in here in a long time and my weekly post in Big Savings Wednesday this morning got me thinking about all the money I have personally kept out of big tobacco's pocket.  If you are a KTC member and you have a few minutes, go up to the link I posted above for Big Savings Wednesday and add your money saved to this week's list.  It will make you feel good, I promise! ;)

Enjoy your Wednesday, my friends!

Day 1059

It is hard to believe I will be hitting three years quit in a little over a month's time.  But, here I am.

Early in my quit journey my brain was constantly thinking about the fact that I wasn't chewing.  Every time I would mow the grass, drive my truck, read a book, go fishing, etc, my brain would be focusing on the fact that I used to always have a chew in my mouth when I did any of those things.  Eventually after time, I found that I might be mowing or fishing for 30 minutes or more before the thought popped into my head.  Somewhere along the line my brain finally stopped thinking about chew when I was doing those things.  Oh sure, chew still pops into my head every once in awhile.  But, it is a completely different thing now.  I can't really explain it. 

1,059 days in and I still post roll.  I do it because I don't want to forget where I have been.  Complacency will always be an addict's enemy. 

I repost the George Santayana quote below every once in awhile just to keep it at the top of my introduction page.  I feel like it helps me to read it and think about what it means to me from time to time.  Maybe it will help someone else too. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”   --   George Santayana

Perhaps George Santayana was a recovering addict himself. It sure sounds like he knew a thing or two about the subject. I can't tell you how many times I have failed in my attempts to quit in the past because I let myself forget just how addicted I am to the nicotine bitch.

George Santayana (1863-1952) was a Spanish born American author and philosopher. It is believed the above quote originated with George, but I have seen some sources that think the quote pre dates George by a few years. For me, it doesn’t really matter who said it first. The words of wisdom contained in the quote should be something memorized by every single addict that is working on recovery. Because when you truly see those words for what they are, you will understand those eleven words are actually a map that will guide any and all recovering addicts to the elusive treasure we all seek. And that treasure is none other than freedom from the chains of addiction.

So, why does KTC work and what does KTC mean to me?

Whether you use KTC to post and ghost roll every day or you fully engorge yourself with gallons and gallons of the kool aid, the successful recovering addict is using KTC to remember their past. They may not consciously realize what they are doing, but they are keeping their addiction front and center in their thoughts every time they visit KTC. By doing this, they are lessening the chance they will repeat their past failures. The daily ritual of visiting KTC keeps us from forgetting that we are addicts. It stops complacency dead in her tracks. And thus it keeps us from falling back down the rabbit hole we call addiction. For some people, simply visiting and posting roll every day is enough. Others may need to interact a little more. And still others may need to completely submerge themselves in the refreshing waters of brotherhood. Every one of us is different and every one of us is the same. Some need the phone calls and the accountability, others just need a safe place to read and reflect.

KTC may mean different things to different people. But, it also means the same thing to all of us. I will never forget where I have been, and I will never forget why I left. That is the pledge I silently make to myself every morning when I post roll call in April ‘18. Because I know if I ever let myself forget that I am an addict I will soon find myself on my proverbial knees again suckling at the teat of Big Tobacco.

Nice brother Kybo.  You should post this in the Comma Club Speeches.  Just sayin'
If you want my digits, just ask and they will be yours, but I expect yours in return.

Accountability is a statement of personal promise, both to yourself and to the people around you, to deliver specific defined results.
Brian Dive

Do not be complacent about your achievements and not to strive for continual improvement when you get to the top. As soon as you let success go to your head, you sink into following familiar patterns and play it safe. In other words, you risk losing your edge.
Roy T. Bennett

You need anything, ask.  You feel strong, help.  This quit is for you but we got your back.
wastepanel

Do not let the actions of others determine the direction of YOUR quit.

I bump the below text back up to the top of my Intro Page every once in awhile because I honestly think that the moment the thoughts below originally went through my mind (way back in March of 2018), is the exact moment that I finally understood and accepted the enormity of my addiction.  I bump it up mostly to help me remember where I have been.  But, maybe, just maybe, it might help flip the switch of recognition for another addict too.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I lay wide awake last night staring at the ceiling and thinking about all the words of wisdom I have garnered from KTC in the last couple months, I found myself thinking about why KTC works for me. And I just kept coming back to one of my favorite quotes. I have never thought about this quote before from an addict’s perspective, but after last night I will probably never think of it in any other way again.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."  George Santayana

Day 808

The parking lot is empty.  I am sitting here in the office by myself and answering the phones and emails as needed.

As depressing as things are getting, I still have lots of reasons to be thankful.  I am not going to bore anyone with listing them all out one by one.  But, I will mention that I am extremely thankful for not having to worry about whether I have enough chew stockpiled to make it through a prolonged quarantine.

Hang tough, man.  Honored to quit with you.

Reach out man if you need anything. People here care about you. It will get better.
Nice work man

I am doing good, guys.  I didn’t mean to freak anybody out.  Apparently I am “essential.”

Although this Covid-19 bullshit is making my life a little more difficult, I still have it better than most.  I have sent everyone else home at my office and I have been working by myself for the last week.  We have shut down one of our facilities completely and our other two are operating on reduced schedules.

I have a steady job that isn’t going anywhere and the other business that my wife and I own hasn’t suffered too much yet.  So, we still have two sources of income rolling in.  It is just really weird not having anybody else in my office every day.

That Intro update was just me expressing how much worse this bullshit would have been for me if I still had to worry about how much chew I had stockpiled.  Thank God I don’t have to worry about that any more.  The biggest thing I am worried about right now is how much this is going to impact my investment portfolio.  I was hoping to retire from my job in 2025 and go to part time in our other business to help my wife.  This bullshit may push me back another couple years.  But, in the grand scheme of things that isn’t really that big of a deal.

I love you guys and it means a lot to me that you guys were worried about me.  But, I am fine.

Day 808

The parking lot is empty.  I am sitting here in the office by myself and answering the phones and emails as needed.

As depressing as things are getting, I still have lots of reasons to be thankful.  I am not going to bore anyone with listing them all out one by one.  But, I will mention that I am extremely thankful for not having to worry about whether I have enough chew stockpiled to make it through a prolonged quarantine.

Hang tough, man.  Honored to quit with you.

Reach out man if you need anything. People here care about you. It will get better.

Be humble... grow everyday.

I fear I will always be chasing the vortex like a drug. None will be as special as my first hit.
