So, like, have you considered a running mate yet?  I'm like, free on Thursday evenings for the foreseeable future if it's a part time gig. I've heard there's a great dental plan...
@Athan, I couldn't ask for a finer partner!  I just don't think the US - let alone the world - is ready for two decent, sensible guys.  We'd make heads 'asplode.

Layering on the unreality.

I got up this morning, and my wife and I are preparing to attend the Libertarian Presidential Debate in Olean, NY.

I'm going to be on stage with the other candidates, presenting my arguments for where we should go as a nation.

Strange doesn't quite describe it.

However... before I go...

I've woken up.

I've taken a piss.

Here I am, posting.

Not just in my intro, but in... oh, four dozen other groups that I regularly post in.

WHILE. I. AM. RUNNING. FOR. PRESIDENT.

So next time someone tells you that they're "too busy" to post or that it's "too much of a hassle"...

... point them at this link, will you?

Because if you really, really, really want to do something - whether it's run for President, or, I don't know, make a promise every day to quit nicotine - you will find a way to make it happen.

1,000 days today.

It seems unreal.  I can remember the day I quit.  I can remember the days from then on, and even knowing how it all went, how it all worked out, I am still amazed.

Love you all.  Thank you for being here when I needed you.
It is impossible to imagine KTC without you, Sam.  Almost everyone here owes at least a piece of their quit success to you.  Keep rocking it my friend!!!

It is said that any fool can count the apples on a tree, but only God can count the trees in an apple seed.
Had you not taken my call that fateful day over a year ago I simply would not be here.  I don't know how far that would have rippled out but I do know I have connected with over 100 men and women here seeking freedom from the chains of addiction.  Only God knows how many they in turn went on to help out.
It is a marvelous tapestry indeed that we are woven into.
Thanks again Samr!

Athan - thank you for this reminder. Emphasis mine:
Quote from: Athan
Hmmmm. When I first heard from BubbaM about the 'cave' I was thinking Bsarno was gone. Then as details trickled in and a different picture emerged, I reasoned that the intentionality of the act weighed in it's evaluation. CLEalt echoed my thoughts and made a well reasoned argument; were this a question of guilt. But this isn't a court of law and Bsarno isn't being charged with a crime. He's being extended the privilege of posting roll on a nicotine cessation site, as are we all. The conditions for posting being nicotine free. Because we are addicts and we are dealing with addicts, grey area, no matter how slight, cannot be allowed as it will be used by the addict to justify using. It is for this reason, not to be harsh or cruel, but to protect the integrity of the process by which we have all achieved freedom, and to preserve it for quitter posterity. I think how Bsarno was rallied to is laudable and a great reflection on the success of June as a group and the character of the men in its hall. It is equally commendable by Bsarno to deescalate the situation and concede to post a day 1 in November. No doubt all of June will descend upon it in support as well. I'm glad Bsarno brought this to light because it further strengthened my own quit and I thought it complete after forging it in the fire of withdrawal. This was good. I will sleep well tonight.
