Crap. Okay, I'll check it when I get back to the office. Not sure I can adjust the permission settings.

The following was copied from  one of our great quit supporters, STS.

 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any quitter on here to help you out. Wheather it's posting or quitting, we will do what we can.

 

Welcome Quitters! I am glad to stay quit with you today.   What has been working for me to post roll is:  1. Do NOT click on the "quote button"  2. Highlight the entire last post starting with " If you quit between 08/22/2017 - 09/21/2017 this is your quit group.." all the way through the last person to post under supporters.  3. Either right click on the highlighted area and click "copy" or press the "Ctrl" key and the letter "C" at the same time.  4. At the bottom of the page (below the fat blue bar with page numbers on it and below the very last post) is a blank box for a new post (says "reply to this topic").   Place cursor in this box and right click "paste" or "ctrl" and "V" at the same time.  5. Go to the middle of your post where it says "quitters" add your name, quit days and comments then click "submit reply".

Be careful opening up the Cafe. No telling who might wander in. B) Let's just hope no rioters bust the windows out.

And look at you being all fancy with the little line over the e in Cafe, Ohioman. I bet you hold your pinkie finger out when you sip your cup of tea, too. :P

Speaking of which, the riff raff as entered the building.  Pinkie out or not, OHman fixed this thing now and even non-admin riff raff's like Moi can use this again.  Schweet!! :D

I for one am thankful today for Sir Fancy OHman! :thanks:

5400+ days quit.  15 years into a quit that I never thought would ever begin.  QuitSmokeless.org saved mine and many other lives.  Simple: you quit, you post, you succeed.  That was my path.  Not everyone follows that same path, that is why I keep coming back here.  Success is possible and the first step is putting down the can.  I found this site 2 days after i put the can down.  Sweat was running down my forehead and I was ready to cave.  I typed into Yahoo, "help quitting smokeless tobacco" and my cry for help was answered with Matt Van Wycks website and life saving buoy. 

To those out there struggling, trying to quit....i was in your shoes..as difficult as it may seem, it is simple in execution:  Dont dip.  Wake up.  Dont dip.  Repeat for 5400 days.

Good luck fellow quitters!

Well that stunk!  I just typed a great be essay that keyed off of macabs1 post, got to the very end and hit the return key one last time and it blew everything away!  I have now idea where my written masterpiece went.  I'm pissed off now!

 

Anyway, if I can quit, so can anyone.

1043 days quit x $4.50/can per every other day (divided by 2) = $2,346.75   plus,

1043/30 days per month x $80/month health insurance savings for being a non tobacco user = $2,781.33

for a grand total of $5,128.08 saved!!!  (Actually Texas A&M gobbled that right up!)

Good morning!  I bet you didn't know this, and it's a little known fact, (how's that for some clever redundancy?) but Thanksgiving Day holidays is one of the best times of the year to quit tobacco.  Don't believe me?  Give it a try and see for yourself!  Don't be a chicken... er, ah, turkey I mean... you can do it!

 

3BD - 1048 and feelin' great!

I am 39 years old. Ive chewed for the past 18 years, didn't take care of my oral hygiene. Haven't been to a dentist in almost as long.  I am terrified and petrified I have mouth cancer. I really want to stop chewing.  Looking for help and support.

Chuck,

Welcome, and you have definitely come to the right place. My name is Bryan (bflem). I am 36 and chewed a can of cope a day since i was 16. I have been quit for 775 days tday, a large part thanks to this site. We definitely can't do it for you, but we will support the hell out of you, offer you advice that has helped us or others on our journeys, and possibly the most important thing is we will commit to quit along side you daily. You will find your quit group in the March 18 group i believe,  that is where you will post daily roll. This journey is really hard, but your life if worth it. You can win this fight, but it usually starts with small fought battles of one crave, one minute, one hour at a time. Eventually those turn into day. So, get some seeds, gum, whatever else you can think of to put in your mouth other then tobacco and get ready! Nicotine is a powerful substance that has physically re-wired the synapses in your brain to listen to it. Your body is gonna kick your ass for a little while as it re-programs. Feel free to pm me if you want a phone number for a text or call if you need it. I will not dip with you today chuck!

Welcome Chuck!  If you really, really want to quit, you'll find it's not all that hard.  Anyway, lean on us if you're having a hard time and feel free to ask questions.

I won't be around the Café for a couple weeks as we're leaving for Israel tomorrow.  I should be back in here around the 18th of December.  I hope some of the other guys can help keep this active while I'm gone.

I haven't been to this site in quite a few years and things have changed.  As I recall, The Cafe used to be where most of the activity occurred, but that doesn't seem to be the case now.  Anyway, tonight I realized that I have gone more than 10 years without taking a dip.  My 10th anniversary was actually on September 30th, but since taking a dip never enters my mind, the 10th anniversary came and went without me noticing and a couple more months went by before I realized it.  

So I just want to say to everyone, you can do this.  Your life will be better without it.  Your health will be better without it.  Your finances will be better without it.  

Today may be your first day, but tomorrow will be your second.  The days will add up and before you know it, 10 years will have gone by.  

Keep fighting.  The victory is worth it.
