Seems like a lifetime ago.  Tobacco consumed my every waking moment from 1983 to 2002.  I never thought i would be able to give it up.  Copenhagen owned me.  I tossed away my can on that October day saying it was my last dip.  I had said these words before.  I spent the next couple of days hopped up on candy and pumpkin seeds to help with the pain.  The weekend was spent sleeping away the pain.  Monday rolled around and I thought i was done.  I had an idea though.  As soon as I got to work I typed into Yahoo search "help quitting smokeless tobacco" and up popped Matt Van Wyks lifesaver of a webpage, QS.org.  The website saved my life.  I had to put the work in though.  I posted.  I read.  I helped.  I was excited to write my 100 day hof speech.  As the hours turned into days, the days into weeks, my addiction slowly faded until it was just a tiny, little voice in the back of my head.  I defeated the can with the help of this miraculous website, the many anonymous people who posted daily, the articles that I read and re-read a hundred times.  And Matt Van Wyck.  Thank you Matt. Happy 16 years to me!
