Time to Dust of this intro a bit. 500 Days of quit

     1 thing you never realize is how long it takes to heal from years of self poisoning. When I started out my quit I estimated I should be clear to go after a months time. Boyyyyy was I Wrong! After joining KTC I come to the conclusion that I was going to need a battle plan. I new I was going to have to set Quit goals to even have a shot at this new found freedom. Once I got zapped with that awful and foggy funk around 95 days quit I new 3 months was only a blimp on the radar of quitting and journey towards independence. So I set out a 6 month goal, Once there I again was feeling the effects of the damage done years past. That 200 funk hit me around 175 days quit and the actual agitation of that phase lasted well into my 200's. This could be do to season change change as well, summer time camping, camp fires, outdoor activity's and sunlight (for us Northerners) was great but hard welcome.
     
     After that i felt pretty good leading up to my year mark. 365 was a huge win for my quit, but it i was still craving hard and I (like a lot of people) started asking myself "Will this ever end?" , "Is it worth this annoyance?" , "Will it be like this forever?" My addiction wanted me to come back, but my mind new better (Thanks to KTC and the tools I learned those first 100 days). I Pushed on with the help of my April Thunderbirds, The encouragement from vets who text me daily still, and the need to pay it forward to the new foggy brained bastard looking for a way to win as well.

     I really started to feel my stride around the 480 mark and 500 has never felt so good. Its getting sooooooo much better as each quit goal is crushed and I'm well on my way to being a 15%ers (2 year mark statistic). It takes a brass pair to quit cold turkey, its not rainbows and butterfly's by any sense of the imagination and there are some really dark days but its worth everything once your on the other side reaching down to help the next guy see the light, you also get to see the respect shine in other peoples eyes as they wish they could overcome their own addiction as well.

                                    My 500 advice rephrased off of something I read a little while ago:
" Being a successful quitter takes work and dedication, Its about being the type of person who doesn't miss roll. Its easy to WUPP your first 100 days when your in the suck, But its crucial to show up when your feeling great, even if its only posting 1 time in your group and logging of for the day. Getting on roll EDD for 2 seconds may not look like much, but it reaffirms your Quit" The programming is what I'm after, I make a conscious effort every morning, Am I winner or am I a looser? What do winners do on the hard days? THEY SHOW UP! If your reading this and planning to quit, TOSS THAT SHIT AND LFG!!!!! if your a new post HOF guy , GET AFTER IT and STAY AFTER IT!

Nick-Otine Free- 500 days of pure quit. LTBE, yesterday is long gone, tomorrow may never come, so today, Let your quit be enough.

0-100 days of quit: your in the shit/suck/trench's, lots of hard days sprinkled with some really cool fresh breath of air before you push on to your HOF day. Exercise it critical, magnesium and Ashwagandha vitamins before bed help get you some much needed sleep. Probiotics help alot for gut issues as well I used Kefir brand for a week or so. that 70s funk is a huge ass surprise and derails lots of quits. I almost lost mine from days 85-95. I also quit dipping fake on my HOF day and switched to sugar free gum. theres no way around these hard times, Through is the only option, no it now, accept it, grab a pair and get it done.

100-200 days of quit: Can get lonely, your kind of on your own now, Us vets kinda push you out of the nest to encourage you to fly, not as many people post roll with you, group members start to drop like flys. There is a 200 funk that hit me around 170- 250 days quit actually. it was a trying time but I had the honor of being a conductor to keep me my mind busy from the cravings. But your group its and your quit line are extremely important during this phase. hopefully your in a group text with your fellow team and also having vets telling you there is hope if you get make it through the day. may sound simple but it means everything when the nic bitch is whispering. our brains are finally starting to realize you in this thing for a long haul so lots of psychological warfare happens upstairs.be patient , this to shall pass.

200-300 day of Quit: Honestly you start feeling pretty good during this phase, your craving start to become less and less. It makes you wanna start being complacent. your start day dreaming that you may be cured. you start to wonder if you slip away from your responsibility , word, and WUPP that maybe no one will care. and if a few do so what, maybe you can try this thing on your own again ( what kept me in it was the remembrance of all the times I tried to stop dipping in the past, I could never do it alone, KTC is the only thing that got me this far so like the saying goes " if it aint broke dont fix it". ) had a week long crave around 260ish so this pickle kept on keeping on. don't fool yourself during this time thinking you got it whipped, YOU DONT KEEP PUSHING!

300-400 day of quit: You start to get that thumping in your chest, could it be that year mark ringing in the back ground? Its puts a smile on your face when you reach this quit goal! you feel like the king of the mountain. Never had you thought you would make it this far. I had once in the past only to fail shortly after so I was excited to surf uncharted waters. I did have a weird rage moment in my 320s and a couple splatters of craves throughout  this 100 but all in all it was not to bad. Once 365 hits you see even more group members fade away and even worse stop texting back. Its sad to see so many piss away all the hard work they put into becoming a better person. this is also the stage where you feel a bit more confident and start to improve other areas of your life. Quitting is contagious just dont let your hat get to big, seen lots of quitters cave around this time as well. WUPP and just stating in your group that you feel like shit that day makes all the difference. ROME was not built in day, you did not undo years of dipping in 400 days, dont be naïve and stick the course!

400-500  days of quit: This was a strange time in my quit, I actually had a couple weekends where craves were almost watering my eyes (again maybe summer time) but i did actually have a back up can of fake for emergency issues as this and dipped fake for about 2 weeks for this first time since my HOF day. But for the first time my brain was finally telling me you got this. the rewiring worked, all the blood,sweat,tears i put into this quit finally paying off! the WUPP EDD pushed me to keep my word and allow no wiggle room for that dirty nic bitch! around 480 it hit me like a wave of mamas fresh biscuits! I have loads of quitters digits and i still text vets, tweens, and newbs daily to make sure I'm leaving no stone unturned. As Henry Ford said " Whether you Think you CAN or Think you CANT,....You're Right!" Jump First and grow wings on the way down man! There is hope for you, im resting here at this Half dangle but im not sold on the idea i wont be challenged in the future, " When the devil ignore you, then you know your doing something wrong, conversely , when the devil comes at you, maybe its because your trying to do something right"

I would seriously suggest you dig out your quit plan, blow the dust off it, and throw it away. That quit plan got you guys to 100. Now it's time to make a plan to get you to 200, or better yet, to 365 and beyond. Eh...that's not possible. The plan should be reviewed every once in a while. I challenge you to do it. You want to quit and STAY quit? Then making a STAY QUIT plan. What you have now is a GET quit plan.

Your STAY QUIT plan really needs to include CHANGES in your life. You've stopped something, so you now need to start something. It's only natural. And again...if you don't control what you start, you're addictive personality will. Make a list of several things you can start or put more focus and energy into. This way at least one of them will take off. Quote from @Leave_notrace

Quote from: mikegooch

I just posted this in Kjsylva82's "scared as hell" feed... I thought some of you other newbies would like to know what is waiting for you if you don't keep posting roll...

I've had 5 gum grafts (maybe more? I have honestly lost count).. they are painful as hell... they never put me to sleep when I get them.. they lay your ass back in a dentists chair under a bright ass light.. you have to keep your mouth wide open for an eternity.. after a while your jaws cramp so damn bad you have to take breaks.. they will give you a lot of numbing agent at first in the roof of your mouth and in your gums on both sides (inside  outside of your gums) because the stitches go all the way through your gums.. the first few shots are really the only ones that actually hurt, because after that it is numb.. There are several bad parts of this procedure.. my least favorite is when they cut the hunk of skin out of the roof of your mouth.. they pretty much have you blind folded and your numb as hell.. still you can tell because the dr says "open wide".. the scalpel goes into the roof of your mouth and you immediately taste blood.. because it runs into the back of your throat.. (this is one good thing about being a dipper.. we have an auto shut off back there and we can block from swallowing!) after the dr. makes the first few slices there.. eventually they have to saw the hunk of skin off  THIS IS THE PART I HATE.. your head moves with the sawing action! by this time they have already completely pulled  scraped what is left of your gums in the bottom away from your teeth as to put the newly cut piece from the roof of your mouth.. this next part irks the shit out of me.. my dr always lays the hunk of skin from the roof of my mouth on my shoulder until she is ready to put it into place.. then.. finally when she is ready.. the hunk of meat from the roof of my mouth.. it is tightly packed between my old gum (whats left of it)  my teeth.. then it is stitched into place.. with a rather large needle that goes all the way through your teeth and gums and back around to neatly sew the new hunk of gum into place.. the entire time this is happening the assistant is sucking blood from your mouth and throat with a large tube.. under the blindfold you can see massive amounts of blood going through the tube.. once were done.. a piece of plastic called a stint is placed in the roof of your mouth, to keep you from bleeding.. for the next week or so it is very soft food and eating on one side of your mouth.. very slowly and carefully not to rip anything away from the gum or hit the roof of your mouth.. you are incredibly swollen and sore for a few days..often during the 1st few nights you bleed from the roof of your mouth while sleeping and gag on bloodÂ… now just imagine being so addicted that within hours of leaving this surgeryÂ… you want to dip so badly that you put a dip into your top lip just to get your nic fix.. you have to do it just right.. any sucking action and you will unclot the roof of your mouth and bleed out like a stuck hog.. Never has a gum graft surgery ever stopped me from dipping.. only when I got tired of all the shit did I stop.. when I got tired of being a fucking slave and paying big money to be the slave. Today even though its only been 12 days.. I still want to dip a few times a day.. but you know what.. I donÂ’t have to! Gone are the days when I have a surgery and I cannot even make it through the rest of the day and I have to pack that shit into my top lip to get the fix.. tell me I am not an addict! I am totally an addict.. if you are here.. guess what?? You probably are too. Today I am so thankful.. I do not have to dip! The nic bitch has lost her fucking power today boys.. I respect the shit out of her because I know what she can do to me.. but today I say no thanks.. actually I say Fuck You and all the pain that comes with you.. I am free today! Thanks fellas! Gooch @mikegooch



found this deep in some intro reads. i would add but enough is said above, NO EXCUSES, JUST QUIT! Jump on in the Quittin is fine!
Nic-Free-457 days and thankful for the message above! ill never need one of those horrendous gum grafts!

If your looking for a reason to kick that cat shit can to the curb or are struggling in your quit and wondering if KTC really is what it says it is than i hope this helps.

      Today i had to drive my buddy truck into work ( im a cheap ass, really need to buy one) because of bad weather. This snow storm brought about 9-12 inchs of snow so the roads were pretty bad off, level 3 type shit happ'en in my world. In the past the only thing that would calm my stress levels down was a big fatty. something about all that poison in there made me (feel) focused. Not today though! I didn't even think about chew and still had the same if not hyper focus the road conditions required. And better yet i was not risking my buddys truck and my life by reaching for a spitter and turning the cap every 5 minutes.

   The most important thing that happened is my buddy shot me a text to pick him up a can on my way home from work. I immediately felt uncomfortable. I thought, Man i have not bought a can of dip in 402 days, I also have not been inside of a gas station but maybe once since my quit ( so much easier to pay at the pump) one of the greatest perks and time savers of quitting in my opinion. walking in I could feel my fight or flight response, like you use to feel trying to buy alcohol underage . Im sure i looked like a frightened stooge standing there nervously trying to remember his style of chew since it was not what i would have bought. After a funny glance from the cashier i paid and got out of there. sitting in my car i could not feel like the most defeat person. hhahaha i felt so guilty like i let lots of people down. like i let myself down like a little kid.

The point im trying to make is that i didnt even use it and felt like a piece of shit ! thats the power of Brotherhood + Accountability ! that the power of this site. 402 days and i still want to hold my quit tight because of what this site has done for saving my life! Never want to let my Team down and i know alot of people look for my guidance !

Find your group and get on roll Every Damn Day  and you will be at 402 + days stacking wins, I quit with you all

QWU today man.  Now give that can of shit to your buddy and tell him you took a piss in it.
To remain quit requires focus

Nick-Free - 24-7-365 LTBE

What can i Say , The journey around the sun has  been a complicated one. The trials that come with this addiction are endless, up and down and up and down the CAN is always calling my name. But heres the thing, im the lucky one. I made up my mind 12.30.21 that i would chasing that POS can for the rest of my life. And the pain had brought me nothing but joy! through the suck I earn a badass quit team in my thunderbirds that rallied every time i needed them. a encore of vets that promised me death and destruction if i turn a blind eye to roll call. It brought about painful truths i had to confront about myself but were needed to grow. I would not have it any other way, Nicotine still calls my name EDD even a year in. But it can lick the backside of my balls because i allready know i kept my word 24/7/365 , the proof is in the pudding. If you wanna quit than do so, Get angry , and be a man/woman of your word. We all bitch and wine along the way its part of quitting, and the family here will help settle your score EDD if you follow such a simple process. Its not for the Weak and the "ill quit tomorrowers" its for the grid iron gang that can pull through hard times and pull help others even when you can barley help yourself. I used fake up to my HOF day 265 days ago, i chewed up to fill that void, now because of my quit im taking care of my mouth and i cant chew gum because of my invisalign braces. 4 weeks ive been completely free, and it sucks so good. I absoululty hate it but i know one day ill come to realize this was gods plan , baby steps until its just a blimp on my radar. there is no shame is asking for help, if you need it reach out ill talk you through the glorious suck! ITs a trial period that shows you what your made of, and every quitter that makes it through it is one BAD MOFO because we all know how easy a Day 1 is. Cheer brothers and sisters to a year in and many more to come, if your wondering if this site is for you the answer is yes if you know whats good for your life. got more positive outcomes in the last year than i have in the last 15 chewing! im the lucky one and you can be to. dont be a bitch, suck it up and lets go to work! see yall down the road at the next stop!

So honored to quit with you, sir.  You are doing this the right way, and you have a lot of greatness ahead.  ODAAT.  You'll never catch up to me, but you will really like where you are going.

     Although Discord has , as Woody would say, "posioned the waterhole" i will hit up my intro a few more times. Something i feared while dipping was the visit to the dentist. I always brushed the hell out of my teeth before heading there, praying and hoping they would not notice my beat up gums and cheek. aint it funny, like a dentist is not gonna notice you chew! addicts are crazy man, they never really said anything but i always had the guilt and fear that one day they would tell me i had oral cancer, that i would need surgery because of possible gum reduction , that they would be pulling teeth next visit because of my lack of better judgment to suck on a cat turd. 

      Yesterday i had no such fear , maybe a little anxiety because you know we all think " maybe i quit to late" we never know for sure if were out of the woods (QUIT TODAY!). But more or less i walked in there proud, gave my dentist my day count as i proudly told her my year quit was coming up in December. She said my mouth has healed up amazing and i probably saved my teeth yearssss of future problems. I have always had 100% overbite but never wanted to correct it because even as a addict i figured my teeth and mouth were in a world of hurt down the road! ( never thought id quit and accepted that my teeth were gonna need pulled or gums fixed at some point, didnt care really that how deep nicotine addiction is!) But now with my freedom my Dentist recommend i get it straighten out, so with my new quit life im head to get orthodontics to get my mouth straighten out for good!

Quitting has  all the upside , Its a WIN WIN! you cant get those odds anywhere else in your life. ITs worth everything , if you swung in here first before you head over to the other site , know your best life starts today with the tossing of that shitty can!

I quit with you all EDD - Nick-296 LTBE

Contract To Give UpWhen you’re ready to give up your quit, print, and sign.

The Contract To Give Up

I give up my quit. Quitting is impossible and I cannot do it. I love dipping more than I love myself. I care about dipping more than I care about my personal health. I love dipping more than I love my family. I know this addiction will kill me, and I ACCEPT that fact. I enjoy spending time alone with my can more than I enjoy spending time with anyone else on the planet. I look forward to losing my jaw, my tongue, my throat, my life – it’s worth it. When I am lying in my hospital bed fighting a losing battle against cancer I will feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that this is the path I CHOSE. My only regret will be that I didn’t start dipping earlier in life. I will feel sorrow for my family’s heartbreak and suffer untold pain, but I know you must sacrifice for the things you truly love.

I know ALL the consequences of my actions and I accept them fully and without regret. I hereby choose to give my life to this addiction – I do so with a smile on face.

The Contract To Give Up

I give up my quit. Quitting is impossible and I cannot do it. I love dipping more than I love myself. I care about dipping more than I care about my personal health. I love dipping more than I love my family. I know this addiction will kill me, and I ACCEPT that fact. I enjoy spending time alone with my can more than I enjoy spending time with anyone else on the planet. I look forward to losing my jaw, my tongue, my throat, my life – it’s worth it. When I am lying in my hospital bed fighting a losing battle against cancer I will feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that this is the path I CHOSE. My only regret will be that I didn’t start dipping earlier in life. I will feel sorrow for my family’s heartbreak and suffer untold pain, but I know you must sacrifice for the things you truly love.

I know ALL the consequences of my actions and I accept them fully and without regret. I hereby choose to give my life to this addiction – I do so with a smile on face.

Trials and Temptations

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. 11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.

12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone

FKEM UP FRIDAY

     
     What a great listen this morning! So relatable to quitting nicotine and this Site. We come up with bullshit excuses as to why we can not take 2 minutes every morning to jump on and post roll. "im to busy", "my family is more important", "I have other priority's that come first" "ill get to it when i can" Every addict has there own go to excuse as to why they cant make it on roll by noon ---> *insert your bullshit lie here* It makes sense, were addicts, We need just a gap so we can to slip back to the can. You read that correct, Addicts want to go back to the can. If were honest to ourselves were always thinking about packing our lip no matter how long you have been free from it. Heres where we separate "there are days we dont want to WUPP, But we DO IT ANYWAY!" "THE JOB HAS TO GET DONE REGARDLESS OF YOUR EMOTIONS"  we have to Love the WUPP Especially when we dont feel like it and that is what we call the TEST DAYS. That's what we Have to do as addicts to EARN our way into Freedom. It a chance to prove to other newbies and vets but most importantly yourself what your made off, That you are what you say you are, That your word is your bond, That you are a person of integrity and honor. The real magic is WUPPing when our body and heart says were not going to any more, but our MIND tells us to DO IT ANYWAY. Thats were Bad Ass quitters separate themselves from those that fail and leave, or stop posting roll. The minute the nic bitch starts telling you to post later, the minute you feel this site is not for you, The minute you put other things in front of your quit. The minute you say you don't wanna quit any more. But you DO IT ANYWAY  That's the difference between a LOSER and someone who is a successful in keeping dip out of their life for good. the last 2 minutes of this video he even mentions addiction. "Every Addiction has a trigger, and when you start to WUPP thats when the magic happens, When you step up when your being tested its gonna be of the best wins you encounter in your own quit! MOVE FORWARD ANYWAY! YOUR ADDICTION IS WINNING FROM HERE ON OUT!
