    Current weight : 200 Daily MAD : 13.1 MAD-(since 5/1/18) see above I ran a half marathon this morning. It was my first race since January, and man was it fun! I had a great time, plus I forgot how much fun it can be to run with people! Overall, just a super fun day. On a side note, my training is going good. Having some lingering foot pain on the top of my left foot. If it doesn’t get better, I may drop back and run the half marathon at St Jude’s...we will see.

Accountability is key Wednesday October 31st. 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- day 6. I stepped on the scales this morning, I've gained 4 pounds already. I hope that slows down. Where are my fellow quitters this morning...post up!! Markymarkk: Day 26!! Bam, Rick, and Nick; I hope you post today. Halloween parties can be dangerous for the quit.  Rick - day 4. All I have is bitching, complaining, and whining. All I'm going to say is here. Bam - Day 7. First milestone. Gotta keep grinding. Nothing about this is easy but we all want and need to quit. If we cave now all the ground we have made so far is lost. We are all through the hardest part. Let's be stubborn sons of bitches together and keep quit. Kevin - Day 1. I just want to apologize for not reaching out for help in a difficult time and losing the quit I had going. It really sucks to be addicted to something so very badly. I really felt like I had a good quit going and then bam it’s over in a blink of the eye. I realize that kickin a forty year habit is not gonna be easy and I need a better plan. I am grateful that I came back and posted day 1. Supporters: FoodBuzz -305- Mind over matter. Just say to yourself that dipping isn’t going to happen today. It all boils down to the choices we make. We are in charge of today. NAT! STS - 700: Nick the weight gain will slow down. I know when I was first quitting, that exercise was key to both helping control the weight gain but also relieving some of the stress. OK, stress is such a mild word. It helped me to deal with the irritability, pissyness, anger and fucking rage. Ah - it felt so much better to say it that way. Weight gain does not matter, foul pissy moods do not matter. All that matters right now is the #1 priority - no dip in the lip. Let's win the day. SC - 258 - keep up the good work guys! PMFJ - 452 - No tricks today guys! Stay focused on the quit!! NMFD!!

     Monday October 22, 2018 FoodBuzz -296- If an addict dies as a result of their addiction would is be considered suicide? Anyway - NDT! STS - 691: Good question. I would say no, as most of us addicts did not want harm associated with getting the "fix". Many times praying that a little lump on the lip or gum was not cancer. But despite the risks, we went ahead and dipped - that is true addiction. Glad to be facing the addiction head on - and very happy to be quit with you. NDT! PMFJ - 443 - I don't think so but I do think that most addicts understand that their actions are self-destructive. I know that was the case for me. My uncle who recently passed away had quit his 3-4 pack a day habit years ago but was unable to escape the consequences. I don't think he intended to suffer that way. My father's oldest brother is now dealing with the same shit, COPD, oxygen 24/7. My dad has cut back a ton over the years, he might smoke a pack a week. I don't know why he doesn't just stop. When he comes to visit me, he doesn't smoke for over a week. I can only control myself, so NMFD!! Bonanza - 288 - Nice philosophical question for a Monday. Maybe someone who doesn't know what addiction is like - maybe they can get a pass. But for us who know full well what this is about, if we started again I think that would lean toward suicidal tendencies (one of my favorite bands...Institutionalized is one of my favorites). We know that another chew has a good chance to lead to an addiction that one may not be able to shake and eventually cause death, but at that time I didn't care (I thought this exact thing when I broke my other long term quit) - that was depression though. My vote is no. I could make alcoholic parallels that would say yes though. Either way I'm glad I know you guys and hopefully none of us will have to actually answer that question for ourselves.

    Dipless Duo Monday October 22, 2018  New Quitters sign Here aug4 day 80 stacking up days. Don’t really think about dip much at all. If I do is generally just a memory and not a crave.

    Day 439 NDT : I walk about 16 miles a typical week, but since the weather has gotten nice, I 'can' get an extra 6 miles in a week. Today I will commit to those extra 6 miles a week. That would be 22 miles per week/ or about 7 hours of walking at a casual pace. Currently at 93 kg. Plan is to get to 86 kg and then start a 'Couch to 5K ' training program, or otherwise known as C25K. This type of program eases a beginner into a running program through a combination of walking/running for 20 to 30 minutes as outlined here: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/ Might even start the C25K program sooner because it is less of a time investment.
