    weight-196 today- 5 miles pace-9:37 suck factor- getting better glad i did it- yep - Farley, thanks for the links. I will check them out. I have an annual physical Tuesday with my internal med doc. reckon i'll talk to him about it. I have been doing strength training exercises in conjunction with the running for the last 6 weeks with that same thought in mind. typically on the days that I run I can't do anything lower body that evening. knee is usually like a grapefruit on those days post run. I do think it is possible that I started off to aggressive with the added weight I had put on. for years my body was used to working out in the low 180's. I quit dip, got overweight, and then decided to dive back in possibly too quick. -chris, thanks for the words. i'll keep ya'll posted. my typical m/o is to keep plugging along until something forces a stop. not the smartest way, but we all have to be authentic. ha!

    November 24, 2018 Quitters: CraigMac6- Day 1210- Happy belated Thanksgiving all! I hope you all enjoyed your time with your family and loved ones. Thank you very much fellas for the kind words. To be honest, my father was a great man and I've always felt if I could be half the father he was, I would do an awesome job. Hopefully I can live up to that! I do know one thing, like all of you said, I will be a much better father without the dip or gambling. When I went back to my fiance's hometown for Thanksgiving, I had a lot of nostalgic moments of my years of tango'in with the dip. Thought of all the times I would rush home, or use dip as my motivation to finish out a longggg day of work in order to enjoy my fix for hours. While the thought of caving never crossed my mind, those moments of "enjoyment" with dip were present. Like many have said before, it's like a crazy ex-gf. The memories might be nice but you know going back to that life is something you NEVER want to do. Life is truly a blessing without the can and we all are such better men without that master taking time from our loved ones. Thanks for all the support gentlemen. Let's keep pushing forward and living life to the fullest, ODAAT! NGT! NDT! STS yes if you do get to Columbia get in touch. 803-888-9501. Heck if any of you ever need anything or just want to call text here there is my number as well! Take Care men! SUPPORTERS: STS - 71X RWM-627- It is amazing how a can of ground up dried leaves can elicit such enthusiasm and devotion. We certainly cannot live life anywhere near our fullest when Dip is our master. NDT. bflem-1,137- craig, hope you had a nice holiday with the fam. the factory is alive and well. wish ole macdanders would make an appearance. take care boss. ndt. ngt.

Accountability is key  November 16, 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- Day 22. Good to see you all made it through another day. KillShot, any luck? My first few times out after I quit it was hard to sit still. I found using fake dip helped some. Sucking on some sour candy worked too. I hope you all have a happy dip-free Friday Bam - 23. NDT killshot- 13 no luck yet. I have been using jerky chew and mints seems to be doing the trick. SUPPORTERS: STS - 716: Yep, do or chew (except tobacco) whatever it takes to not put dip in your mouth. I have tried just about every possible quit-aid during my quit, and had found that TeaZa pouches are for me the absolute best oral pacifier. I never chewed pouches when I was dipping, but these big flavorful pouches are a Godsend. I do not work for them or have any financial interest in Tea-Za. https://teazaenergy.com/store/teaza-shop/ FoodBuzz -321- Extra strength Halls (black), sun flower seeds, and gum have been my ammunition. NDT! bflem-1,129- yep, deer stand, duck blind, and fishin boat were just a few of the things i thought i could never do without dip. turns out all are far better and i get to make fun of my friends for still being slaves. that my friends, is a good feeling. stay quit gents.

    November 15, 2018 Quitters: CraigMac6- Day 1201- I really do appreciate you gentlemen coming in here from time to time when I post. I'm not here as much as I should yet you guys still find time to post up in my thread. It says a lot about the each of you as men and your character as well. I truly appreciate you fine men. Yes where does the time go! Gosh it seems like yesterday we were struggling to make it through one day without sweating bullets because the NB was at our ear. Now all of a sudden, we are 600 plus days quit. While it hasnt been easy, it sure does get ( a little) easier with each day. I know at any time I could become a full addict again, so I will never say this addiction has been conquered because it hasn't but after that first year things do seem to go a little smoother. Anyway, I wanted to share some good news with you gents. I''m really excited yet nervous but I'm going to be a DAD this coming June! My fiance has 2 kids of her own and I love them like they are mine but after seeing that ultra sound yesterday of the heart beating, it truly took my breath away. Life is so precious, yet full of emotions. Again thanks for always coming in here gents. Your time is much appreciated. Oh yeah, day 60 of being gambling free! Have a beautiful evening all. NDT! NGT! SUPPORTERS: STS - 715: I know I am a day late (probably a dollar short as well) on this post. But also wanted to offer congrats on Fatherhood and on 60 days without gambling. You have been a great supporter of mine Craig. I should be down in Columbia, SC sometime about the second week of December. I'll keep ya posted. RWM-618- saw the factory chimney bellowing steam. We got work today boys! Congrats on the great news, craigmac. Fatherhood is a blessing and much better without dip or gambling addictions in the picture. Everybody thought it was weird that I seemed to love dip more than my kids. It wasn't true, but master required that I kept it fed and occupied. NDT! bflem-1,129- well dad gum it craig, if that's not some of the best news i've heard in awhile. You my friend are going to be a great father. Thank you for blazing the trail for the three of us. You have kept your hands on the quit plow and that has helped us along the way. Well done on the 60 days. NDT!NGT!
