    If you quit between 10/25/2018 - 11/21/2018 this is your quit group. To join this group all you have to do is quit dipping and post Roll Call How to post roll call. (updated!) Get the Contract to Give Up Print it out and carry it in your wallet Click Here for a room to exchange phone numbers. Accountability is key  Thursday November 1st. 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Bam - day 8. Not dipping today. I'm ready for what today brings me. Yesterday was a bit harder than day 6 which I wasn't expecting. But today I'm ready for whatever the nic bitch throws at me, I'm going to fight back tooth and nail. I will NOT be putting that shit in my mouth today. Nick- day 7. One whole week with no dip and I will not dip today. Kevin - day 2 it was a frustrating day yesterday but ready to tackle today!  SUPPORTERS:  RWM -604- the main goal is no dip today. aug4-90- I am here to support all of you in this journey. But I will go ahead and say that Kevin was originally with us in the November group and I am very glad to see him back in another quit group so soon. So you may have caved but you have the will and desire to go right back after this quit. Everyone can do this. Post every day, find other things to occupy your mouth - gum seeds fake chew whatever. Realize you are not going to be normal for a bit. Warn your loved ones. Just decide you can do it and do it.  FoodBuzz -306- There will be days where fog turns and you will feel proud and satisfaction for where you’ve come. Keep pushing, it’s not easy but very worth it. NDT quit with you all here! PMFJ - 453 - Keep that shit outta your face!! NMFD!! STS - 701: Dip sucks, so I am not going to do any. Tiger - 2107 - We cave because we are scared. Scared that we can’t do it. Scared that we will lose something. Scared that shit will be different. Scared that we can’t do it without dip. Scared of what normal looks like without dip. The reality is, we can do it. All of it. Without that horseshit. Why the hell do you want to let something like that control you? I mean REALLY CONTROL you. Got you by the MAN NUGGETS. Fuck that. FUUUCK that. Dip ain’t worth it. You and I are way stronger that’s that shit. I remember I always used to lie to myself and say “Man, I don’t want to quit. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE dipping.” Lie. Bullshit lie. I knew I wanted to quit, I just didn’t have the guts to do it. Once I found this place and you guys, I knew it was just a matter of time. I love the saying, once you’ve seen this place, you can’t “unsee” it. It’s the truth. Once you see quitters loving being quit...it’s over. NMFDT with you badasses.

    Bam, congrats on making the first week. I'll be there tomorrow. Kevin, welcome to the group. Like they say misery loves company, but at least this misery doesn't look like a rotting face. Rick, keep on bitching with no dipping. Good job brother, hang in there. To all the supporters, congrats to you all for making it as far as you have and thank you for the support and showing us it can be done. Earlier today I was thinking about past failed quits. You know how it goes, you go a few days thinking how nice it would be to have just one more. Your mind overpowers you and you decide just one won't hurt. Then next thing you know you've caved to a crave. That first one it never seems to measure up to what your mind thinks it will, before you know it days have passed and you're back to a can plus a day. Why bother with that disappointment? Never quit quitting!!!

    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.  Help me kick cancer’s ass Races this year:  MS Blues Half Marathon- 1-28-18 2 hours and change! Monroe Distance Classic - 2:02   St Jude Memphis Marathon -

    Bazza 2559 - 7 years ago I made one of the smartest decisions of my life, I quit dipping. It was tough at first, but having the support of my fellow quitters, making a commitment every day not to cave, and my competitiveness not to be the one to cave saw me through. Over the first couple of months it was a rollercoaster ride of good and bad days. You just have to tough it out one day at a time. Now, I don't worry about oral cancer, teeth falling out, inflamed gums, or having to hide from my family when the cravings hit. My kids will grow up never knowing about my addiction and will have less chance of becoming addict's themselves. You've got this. You can do it! The only thing that is important today is not to dip!!

I probably should not of jumped my mileage up so much but I had to see if my body could handle the stress. Everything seems ok except for my left calf, it seems kind of pissed at me. I did not push it today. We will see what tomorrow brings. Just great being outside! Happy Halloween everybody! Cheers!

Accountability is key  October 22, 2018 Quitters Post Here: Markymarkk- Day 17.  thanks for the support, not doing too bad. You're right, need to quit for myself. Overall, doing fairly well; my wife is going away in 2 weeks, then I have to travel after that; I am concerned about those 2 so to speak "opportunities to cave". I know I dont want to and am not intending to, I must be vigilant. aug4 day 80 - marky I am in the November group working towards 100 days. I See that you are over here doing a solo quit. So wanted to post with you today and encourage you to keep at it. You may think it will take forever but I have been surprised how fast the days go by. One day at a time Is key and you should post everyday. Hopefully some new quitters will join in the next couple of days. If not you can still do it solo. Supporters: STS - 691: Keep up the good work Marky!! NDT!! FoodBuzz -296- One thing to keep in mind Marky...this quit is for you! Don't do it for anyone but you, very important to be selfish here. If a quit is being done for someone/something else then once there's a problem the guard against nicotine/tobacco quickly weakens and fades. I quit for me and me only, I can only hope that while I'm in my climb others can see it's possible and push for the climb as well. Always nice to have other climbers and it's great to have you on board! I'm quitting with you today!  PMFJ - 443 - Keeping the quit going another day. Marky is a winner today!! NMFD!! RWM -594- it's great to be quit here and now. None today.

    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.

    No Booze Crew ...where 1 is too many and 24 isn't enough. 10.20.2018 FoodBuzz -4- Watched A Star Is Born last night...very glad to be posting NAT today. Day 4! RWM - 2435- None for me. My last drink was on February 20, 2012. I would have called myself an aspiring alcoholic--meaning if I would have kept going as I was, I would certainly be one by now. I loved having a couple beers and conversation with friends, after taking care of chores on the weekends, after a stressful day at work, and during social events. I loosened up, let my worries go, and had fun. All seemed like normal fun, just like any other normal person. However, if I started to have too many, as sometimes happened, I would get meaner, or do irresponsible things. I realized that the only way I could be totally responsible for myself 100% of the time was to not have any. I miss having a few beers during the above situations, but like dip, I realize that just one also involves all the bullshit that comes with it besides the fun shit. So, I choose to live without that crutch today.

Running is going well, but I don't think I will extend my runs much over 4 miles. Gonna try some alternative meds for the tendonitis soon. Tiger - Keep up the good training. I have some running friends that will be running the marathon with you.

    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.
