Now that our guy SixString has had a moment to vent, let me address what it is he is referring to:

I was invited to join Quitting Dip, and on a whim, I did.  I said, "why the fuck not? Some of my other buddies post there as well."  Some of those guys left KTC all together.

I did indeed post twice on QD, but not today.  There was this nagging doubt about the site - not the site in and of itself, but rather if i could make a full commitment to QD, and still make a full commitment to KTC.  The answer to that was, no.  I could not be actively involved in QD as is required there, and at the same time be actively involved here.

Since my choice could not be both, my choice then is to post here and here only.  My choice then is to do my best as a mod here, to better hold others accountable, to share quit wisdom, to offer encouragement, and to, in some way, help you be a better man by ridding yourself of the addict mentality and to help fortify your choice at a better life.  KTC and the brotherhood HERE provided a pathway for me to become quit.

I stumbled upon this site like many of you and I know how harmful dip was to my mind, body, and my soul - as you probably do to.

So, you can form your own opinions, as Mr. Six has.  And maybe you wanna know more about me as BluManChew - it's all here in these forums - i laid it all out there - good, bad, stupid, ill timed, funny, assholish - its all there.

Regardless of where anyone chooses to post - quit is quit.  And I can respect that.

Quit on brother!

The first person in my quit network who actually called me on the phone left KTC for QD a long time ago.  The last time I checked he was still posting roll there.  I never had hard feelings.  I think everyone who wants to quit needs to do whatever they need to do to stay quit today.  The important thing is being quit.   8)

381 Days Later


Gents, ladies, let me be 69franx with you.  I'm going to tell you something straight up.  From the cavernous labyrinth of my soul - let me tell you something from a dope who  dipped straight but never dipped Cope. 

I measure my sordid, masochistic, insidious love affair with the bitch in decades.

How I made as far as I have I cannot tell you.  And how I've made from there to here I certainly can - Choice.  The Epiphainein event leading up this point 381 days  later came down to a simple choice.

A choice that for one reason or another I hadn't ever made - I mean really, really had never made that choice.  But I made that choice decades after I knew that I should.  But I bought the lie that came with every tin, every pack.  It told me time and time again that I never could.

Then one day, I made the easiest choice I ever had - I walked away.  As simple as that.  One moment I was dipping and the next I was not.  It wasn’t always easy, though.

Sometimes I had to run and I had to run like hell - run like my hair's on fire.  And I walked, stumbled, sprinted, jogged, dragged and crawled and clawed my way.  Kicking and screaming - dragging myself onward.  Day after God damned day, every damn day, day after day after day. 

Yet, here I am.  381 days later.  Three hundred and eighty one days since day number one.  That means something.  That’s something worth protecting. 

I'll guard my quit like I guard my balls.  Always, ALWAYS, always be on the ready for a surprise, phantom kick by the bitch of a passing flick-of-the wrist directed toward your groin. – (hands crossed over crotch, lift one foot off the ground, bend raised knee, and quarter turn away from the assailant.)  Works every fucking time.

I'm quick like that.

So, let me tell you all something besides all that sobby shit.

Ready?  No, seriously? Okay....

...being quit is awesome.  No, glorious some days in fact.  I cannot begin to tell you how much life will be better.  In every way - whatever the circumstances.  I can’t tell you.  I wish I could tell you, but I can’t.  I can’t tell you how healthy it feels, how good it feels; how good it feels to have the weight and burden of constant self-reproach cast from my once slumped shoulders.   I can focus.  Music is better.  I can breathe.  I call smile.  I can kiss. I can care now. And me telling you all these things doesn’t tell the full story.  So, I’m sorry for that.

Fuck, guys.  I'm really sorry.  I'm sorry I couldn't tell you about being quit and all.  Damn, man.

I can't tell you because you're going to have to experience it for yourselves.  "One day at a time". That’s not a slogan. That's how it’s done.  It's a choice that needs to made daily.  ODAAT

Just sayin’.

Whelp, today marks 1,000 days.  All I can say is that 1,000 days ago I flung out that final wad of catshit and said fuck it and walked away.

Not saying it was ever easy, bc it wasn't, but it sure as hell was worth it

If you think you don't have the power to overcome that nasty addiction, think again.   What you have the power over is choice.  This isn't a matter of can not or will not, but a matter choose to or choose not to quit .

If you are a guest reading this, quitting NOW will be the best choice you can make.  It's a choice I've made every moment for the past 1,000 days.

Congrats brother on a 1k badass days.
Dude!
Thx @Athan and @Keith0617 !  One thing I didn't mention above, is that those 1,000 days are attributable to all the other quitters who have to grind it out. 

Brotherhood + Accountability = Success
Such an awesome point in time: BMC@1,000! Keep the faith brother and keep being a badass spreading the word!
Congratulations BMC!! You’re a true badass!
Congrats BMC! A comma and then some is what we’re all in here for...to not look back and enjoy what we’re getting done...you’re inspiring. Thanks.
