Had some new firsts...made it through nightshift without wanting it....
If there was ever a crucible of quit...that would be it.  I rolled off of shift work a few years before I rolled off the can.  Now I'm preparing to start it again and I have to be honest here - I shudder to think of the 3 am wall without nicotine.  You're made of stern stuff brother.  Thanks for blazing the trail.  I'll have to ping on you when the time comes.

Day 14, Feeling pretty good...had some little urges last night watching the Astros but I just ate a shit ton of seeds and texted with @SixString who has been there every single day for the past 14 days as some others have also been there.  I am still waking up with the attitude I don't need nic today.  I believe my urges are out of habit more than wanting nic.  Had some new firsts...made it through nightshift without wanting it....went to a fall festival with my family without wanting it.  All I can say is finding this site was one of the best things that could have happen too me.  Oh and if you ever click on @Athan signature, pack a lunch....lol these vets could write a book on the quit.
Glad to call you my brother. You inspire to me be the best damn quitter i can possibly be. Its awesome to hear you checking off things that you have done without quit. Really proud of you man. Lets tackle this day and make it our bitch. Congrats on two weeks. Heres a virtual blowjob.

... For me I choose to succeed one day at a time.
Brother you are so far ahead of the pack with that statement right there.  Great job making it to double digits.
There ain't nothing like freedom and ain't nothing life can throw at you to make it worth being a slave again.

Day 11....Doing pretty good...have not had sweats or itchiness for a few days so that is good.  Depressing to see some of my peeps in my group cave or disappear, but inspiring to see many others succeed.  For me I choose to succeed one day at a time.
Glad to hear it - it does get better and better over time, just be prepared to experience some days where you feel like you are going backward. it does suck to see members of your group cave, but remember you can't quit for somebody else. Provide as much support as you can, but don't taking somebody caving as a reflection on you.
Where did you get those big internet muscles?

I was talking to @SixString earlier...and had to share this I thought this was funny as hell.

So I guess I had a bit of a trigger...I have ordered some smoky mountain and it has not arrived yet.  I am down to my last can of bacoff and I started to panick for a minute...then I realized its fucking mint leaves LOL.  It is funny to think of the shit I have seen and done in over 26 years of Law enforcement and I am fucking scared of running out of fake dip...lol ...that is just fucking sad.  Six prolly thinks im idiot now lol.
To add to this story. When I first read his text I didn't realize that he mentioned his trigger.  So respond with what caused your trigger? Was it a long day work? And JS replies. Noo I'm down to to my last can...hahaha I'm the worst supporter ever.

Day 8 ....stayed up half the night reading oldschool and wildirish stuff.  Got a bit triggered last night...watching peaky blinders...all the smoking in that show...bugging the shit out of sixstring at 2 am lol.  My boy @SixString  is at 50 today, @KD2 at 39,  @Keith0617  is at 369, @JJG009 is at 13, @Finoc1984 at 6, and @chris2alaska is at 629...ptqwyt !!!!!!!  Today i feel pretty good...I got up late but no sweats or itchyness today so far (although I am waiting for them to come).
^^ you keep this up and I promise you your quit will become easier to manage. Proud to call you my brother. Trust me when I say you are a million times stronger than me. Remeber sometimes we got to take it one second at a time. I have complete faith and trust in you to overcome your addiction. Also dont forget to call me today to chat it up.
That a boy js day 8 is huge breaking into the new week. When’s the last time you’ve been nic free for over a week? I went back and read my post on my day 7 and remembering I couldn’t see or think through the thick fog clouding my face. The fact that you are facing these thoughts and reaching out winning the little (and big) battles that’s what it’s about getting through that movie that after meal crave and getting to bed so you can WUPP and be free one more day!

If you anticipate the itch and sweats coming, then they will probably come but if you just move on and forget about them, they may stay at bay.

Day 7....yesterday afternoon kinda sucked...texted some of my quiters for support and they came in strong.  My body is doing some weird shit with no nic.  I mean my armpits are itchy as hell.  A little bit about me.  I turned 50 last month, and have been dipping since 17 years old....so 33 years I have been chewing tobacco.   I quit because I was just tired of it...tired of waking up thinking about it...just tired of it.  I reasoned with myself...why couldnt I just suck on mint leafs instead of the shit that contains nic.  Anyhow I figure my body is gonna have some weird reactions after 7 days of no nic when it had been use to it for 33 years.  Hell even my daughter was worried for me to quit...thinking my heart might stop lol.  That tells you how ingrained it was in my life.

Awesome job reaching out JsJ,

That is exactly why we exchange digits with each other.  Your body and your brain are going through and will continue to go through changes for quite some time.  Some of those changes you won't even notice, others will smack you right in the face.  You just need to continue being aware of your surroundings never get complacent.

Congrats on your first full week of freedom and making it through your first weekend.

You are on your way brother.
