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!

Congratulations on 11th Floor MN
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.

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