2,700 days of making a promise and keeping my word; 2,700 days of freedom.

This place/method works folks. If you find yourself reading this and you are on the fence, chuck whatever you have left with a vehement rage and commit to taking your life back. You are stronger than a dead, poisonous plant in a plastic can.
@MN_Engineer speaks the truth. 1808 days with you.

Craving hard lately after 1,957 days. Craves in the sense of romanticizing dip and not so much wanting to go out and buy a can. But damn, the nic bitch will wait as long as she needs to catch us in our weaker moments.

I don't say this to discourage any new or potentially new quitters. I say this to hopefully illustrate that we are never cured. We are addicts and must enter the battle each and every day. I'm quit like fuck today and will never break my word.

Each one of us is a few dollars and one bad decision away from a Day 1. If you need to expand your accountability network, hit me up. Let's crush the nic bitch ODAAT.
Right there with ya my friend. 547 days and not a day goes by that I don’t get a crave. Usually a trigger from the past like going to my van for parts at work as I always keep my can in the van. It has been easier every day to walk away from the crave as the vets like you have said. Stay strong brother and thanks for all you have done for KTC, others and myself. PTBQWYT!!!!!

Always important to quit ODAAT but I've got my sights set now on that double dangle!! ,,

Thanks to everyone who has supported me the past 1,900 days. And to any guest reading this and thinking this is unattainable for you - that was me. I was terrified at the thought of quitting. I was paralyzed by the impossible task of quitting "forever". But here we quit for 24 hours at a time which is completely manageable. Come join us, take your life back and starting enjoying the freedom that comes with being QUIT today!!
Congrats brother!! Great work!
fine work good fellow!

~25 guests surfing around the site this morning.

What are you waiting for?!? It's easy to quit 'tomorrow'. We've all been there. Take the leap of faith and dive in. Make an account and head over to the September 2021 Group and post your Day 1.

We don't quit forever here. We quit for TODAY. We focus on the present and quit tomorrow when it comes.

Stop being a slave to a nicotine. Take your life back. You won't regret it!
I read your post subject title and had to chuckle to myself.  The MNx 5 years hence would have been all over that "hope" to quit nonsense.   

Hey guest reader...you hope for things you don't have control over.  You have 100% control over quitting.  This is Yoda wisdom...Do.  Or do not.  There is no try.

Proud to quit with you and the boys of summer over there in Aug2016 every single day, MNx!
Just one and you will be back to where you started, and where you started was desperately wishing you were where you are now.

*flicks on the light*

Holy fuck it's dusty in here. This intro hasn't seen any love in waaaayyyy too long.

Having crossed the half-decade threshold yesterday, I decided it was probably time to dig this tome out of the archives to share some thoughts and reflect on the past 5 years.

Some days, it doesn't feel that long ago I was smuggling cans using secret internal pockets in my work backpack. Times when I would be packing two pouches from the time I left for work until the moment I drove into the driveway. See at home it was more difficult - I was a ninja dipper and kept everything secret from my wife. The moment she went to bed, I'd be back to running dual pouches until I crashed myself, staying up way too late to nurture the love affair with the other woman in my life - the nic bitch.

I don't know why I kept her around. All she did was steal my money, my health and rob me of time I should have been spending with my wife. But thanks to KTC, that love affair ended abruptly on 4/25/16.

At first I didn't know if KTC was for me. I knew I was an addict but I was still blinded by the lie that I enjoyed doing something that was killing me. With the hardcore atmosphere around here, I actually wasn't scared about failing but rather, I was terrified of success. If I was quit, how would I take a shit? How would I mow the lawn? How would I drive anywhere again? How would I play softball or do any other of the millions things I had associated with a pouch or two squeezed between my gums and cheek?

But I jumped in and trusted the process. I knew with anything in life, it was going to be a learning process that would need to be developed. I started to realize I would have to learn to hate nicotine and the damage it did to my body and within my life. Each day I posted roll leaning on my brothers and sisters for support. I knew having my name on roll gave them motivation and their names next to mine solidified the brotherhood that is necessary in this daily battle.

In the 5 years I have been here, I have never missed roll once. Yeah, I'm bragging but I'm also going to make a point for any of the guests lurking who may read this. Roll is our promise not to use nicotine in ANY form today. As (perhaps) the most foundational aspect of KTC, I embraced this aspect and never let go. By making my promise early, every damn day, it takes nicotine completely off the table. Bound by my word which I am not willing to ever break, caving goes from an improbably to an impossibility.

Post roll, honor your word. It isn't always easy but it truly is that simple.

This is already way longer than I wanted so let me just say that without KTC my life would still be completely off the rails. This site has brought people and methods into my life that have been instrumental in re-shaping me as a person. I've been able to root out more demons than just nicotine with the most badass people at my side, many of which I'm honored to call my friends. My children have never known their dad as a slave to nicotine and that is a beautiful thing. While I continue to quit for myself, they are certainly a motivating factor.

If you are on the fence about quitting, my advice remains the same - jump in and trust the process. You don't need to be 100% ready to quit. I wasn't. But KTC can help reform your mindset and lay the foundation for freedom that is unparalleled to the slavery of a dead, poisonous plant in a plastic can.

Thank you KTC. Thank you to all those who have helped keep me on the straight and narrow. Looking forward to the next 5 years but until then, I'll be over in Aug 16 chugging along QLAMF ODAAT.

I just wanted to take a moment to log some milestones in my intro here. Just last week I hit 3 YEARS nicotine free and today marks my 11th floor (1,100 days).

When I joined this site 3 years ago, I had never been able to stop on my own for more than 21 days. I thought the nic bitch was too big of a monkey on my back that I would never be able to overcome. But through the accountability of this site and the method here of focusing 24 hours at a time, no matter how big that monkey on my back chooses to be that day, I can carry him 24 hours at a time. Some days I barely notice him; other days I reach the end of the day gasping for air, exhausted. But I win 24 hours at a time, bound by my word that I give to my quit brothers and sisters each and every morning. This method has worked for 1,100 days and I have zero intention of fixing what ain't broke.

If you are reading this as a someone contemplating whether or not to quit, do it. Bury all the fear of the unknown and let us help you. I feared success when I joined here more than failure. What if I did succeed day to day? What would my life be like without dip? Will I be able to function? How will I mow the lawn or play softball or play Xbox or take a shit without a lip full of dip? Well in fact, it is all more enjoyable than you remember and so we want to help you regain that lost freedom.

So I encourage you to take the plunge and never look back. You will never regret it. Proud to be quit with you all today!

Can't thank you enough for sticking around and paying it forward!

The title of this intro is just classic... like so many of us, you are winning at something that we used to view as impossible.  Congratulations on another couple of huge milestones, brother.  You are as rock solid as quit gets, and it is an honor to quit with a winner like you.
This is a vortex of awesome Quittage!  Proud to be quit with you every day, MNx!!  Congrats on crushing all of these outstanding milestones and thanks for paying it forward like you do!
Just one and you will be back to where you started, and where you started was desperately wishing you were where you are now.
