Well, over 2,000 days quit and I love being quit. 

Anyone seeing this that has any doubts about being quit, please feel free to reach out to me.  I would be happy to share my story with you and help get you on the path to freedom from nicotine.

Best Regards,

chris2alaska

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.

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

Thank you everyone, my intro has reached 14,000 views.  Now on to 15K.  Stay tuned for something you don't want to miss.  I don't know what it is yet but I guarantee you will not want to miss it.
If you want my digits, just ask and they will be yours, but I expect yours in return.

Well,

I am no longer a Moderator.  I had been considering the idea of retiring for well over a month.  It was just time for me to move on and focus more on helping others quit this vile addiction of ours.  I did the leave the door open, so you may once again see me donning the Moderator title in the future.

I would, however, like to thank everyone of the Admins and Moderators that I had the pleasure of working with over the last few years.  It is a thankless job for the most part and there are some very tough decisions that have to be made, unfortunately, not everyone agrees with the decisions in every case.  But I know in my heart that all of the decisions made are for the greater good of the site and its members even though there are some that would say the decisions are biased and in the interests of those making the decisions.  This is just so untrue and I hope one day those that feel this way actually see all the good being done and not what they perceive as the bad.

Over the last few years, I have seen a shift in how this site works.  It used to be a very hard nosed, tough love, drag 'em through the dirt until theY break kind of place.  Used to be, if a quitter was late posting or missed roll all together, there'd be 15 people calling them up on the phone to get their ass in to post roll.  Lately, it has gotten much softer.  I know that is why a lot of the vets have left and it is sad because they have so much to offer new and old quitters alike.  The groups have gotten smaller and smaller as well.  I assume this is due, in large part, to the overwhelming stresses of life dealing with the pandemic and our government over the last year and a half.  No one wants to give up their vice for dealing with stress.  I have a feeling that WHEN all of this passes, these halls are going to be filled once again and I plan on being here for it.  I just wish people could realize that they don't need nicotine to deal with stress in their lives.  It actually hinders your mind and body's natural abilities to deal with stress.

So, until that day comes, you can find me here helping those that have found there way here.  If anyone wants or needs digits, mine are always available, just ask. 

Quit all day with all of you,

Chris

Chris,
Thanks for all that you have done, and I am sure, will continue to do.

See you around,

Thanks Chris!  I'm glad that folks like you step up to moderate and administrate.   8)

I'm not sure why vets leave.  I just know that this site was there for me on my day 6 and I seem to wake up every day with a thought in my head that I should post roll.

@chris2alaska thank you for stepping up in a leadership role. We need more people like you to do this to keep this place rolling. See you on the boards posting.

"A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion."


A Quit Plan: Do you have one?


CLOSE THE DOOR. In my opinion, it?s the single most important step in your final quit. There is one moment, THE moment, when you finally let go and surrender to the quit.
After that moment, no temptation will be great enough, no lie persuasive enough to make you commit suicide by using tobacco. SportDad 1/13/05

Can’t thank you enough my brother, for your effort, your time. This place is amazing - it just kinda works. I’ve noticed a down tick in the pulse of the organization as well. That’s ok. As long as there’s addicts; there’ll be a need to quit. And there’s no shortage of addicts.

Well,

I am no longer a Moderator.  I had been considering the idea of retiring for well over a month.  It was just time for me to move on and focus more on helping others quit this vile addiction of ours.  I did the leave the door open, so you may once again see me donning the Moderator title in the future.

I would, however, like to thank everyone of the Admins and Moderators that I had the pleasure of working with over the last few years.  It is a thankless job for the most part and there are some very tough decisions that have to be made, unfortunately, not everyone agrees with the decisions in every case.  But I know in my heart that all of the decisions made are for the greater good of the site and its members even though there are some that would say the decisions are biased and in the interests of those making the decisions.  This is just so untrue and I hope one day those that feel this way actually see all the good being done and not what they perceive as the bad.

Over the last few years, I have seen a shift in how this site works.  It used to be a very hard nosed, tough love, drag 'em through the dirt until theY break kind of place.  Used to be, if a quitter was late posting or missed roll all together, there'd be 15 people calling them up on the phone to get their ass in to post roll.  Lately, it has gotten much softer.  I know that is why a lot of the vets have left and it is sad because they have so much to offer new and old quitters alike.  The groups have gotten smaller and smaller as well.  I assume this is due, in large part, to the overwhelming stresses of life dealing with the pandemic and our government over the last year and a half.  No one wants to give up their vice for dealing with stress.  I have a feeling that WHEN all of this passes, these halls are going to be filled once again and I plan on being here for it.  I just wish people could realize that they don't need nicotine to deal with stress in their lives.  It actually hinders your mind and body's natural abilities to deal with stress.

So, until that day comes, you can find me here helping those that have found there way here.  If anyone wants or needs digits, mine are always available, just ask. 

Quit all day with all of you,

Chris

If you want my digits, just ask and they will be yours, but I expect yours in return.

Today I hit 1,200 days Free of nicotine.  I am ever so thankful to all of the brothers and sisters that support me day in and day out.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You all have saved my life.  I hope I have had a part in keeping someone else from the clutches of nicotine.

Thank you! I Love You! Someday I will hug you!
Congrats @chris2alaska on hitting the 12th and thank you for all you do to help quitters. You know you played and play a roll in my quit. Proud to quit with you brother. Cheers  'shots'
Well done brother, no reason to stop now. Like Keith said, you have done and so much for this place, keep killing EDD
Thanks for everything Chris!  Proud to quit with you! 'Have a beer'
The hug...is that a promise? Congratulations!! Thank you for all you do here!!
Most definitely @ankape
Congrats Chris. You are a wealth of support and knowledge. Never stop what you are doing.
