Roll Call

Recommended Posts

Thanks. Will continue reading. I pulled up some of the old school hall of fame messages and have been reading those. Went to my truck and taped pictures of my kids on my dashboard. Also wrote a few of the themes/tactics that will help me stay quit on a sticky and placed in my wallet. They are as follows, in no particular order:

 

1. Accept that I cannot ever have another dip in my life

 

2. Visualize as detailed as possible the doctor's office with wife when bad news comes in, and then visualize going home and telling my three children and the rest of my family and friends.

 

3. Need to change behavior- not personality. Don't need to change who I am, just what I do- drive home differently, etc- just change things up a bit

 

4. Become obsessed with quiting, become addicted to it

 

5. Do not think I am unique- I am an addict and this simply is a drug

 

6. Positive reinforcement. Try to stay positve about the whole situation. You got yourself into this, get yourself out

 

7. Pray

All very, very good tactics. Some others -

PAY AT THE PUMP!

Have a plan. We all know you've 'tried' to quit before. Remember those times and what caused you to give up. What would've made you hold out?

  1. Were you board? Have a list of things in case you get bored.
  2. Were you golfing? Don't go golfing, and if you do - take gum, seeds, toothpicks, whatever
  3. Were you mad at your wife? Preemptively figure out what to do in that situation.

Have a plan for everything and make sure it is visible so that you can't ignore it when they come up.

Another thing is the Contract to Give Up. Print that sucker off and keep it in your wallet. Also - print off the Reply from Jenny Kern. Don't let this happen to you.

 

There have been many people in the shoes you're in right now that have made it. It can be done.

Crazykoz--Day 3, can't sleep, can't think straight, but I know I'm not giving in today!

 

The sleep thing can be tough, you just need to be tougher. For me I kept moving as much as possible. Action kept the sleep at bay. When I could sit or lay down I did. Even a 10 minute nap made a huge difference.

You have the right attitude - you are not giving in today. That is all you need to worry about.

We can worry about tomorrow - tomorrow.

Day one. Am I in the right place?

 

Yes sir you are and welcome.

 

Post roll (Instructions below) and join the fun. Posting roll is a promise to all of us to not dip for today. We subscribe to the one day at a time method of quitting here, so we are only quitting for today. Tomorrow you come back and post roll again, making that same promise for tomorrow.

 

If you need anything, let me know.

 

Instructions for posting roll

 

1. FIND THE LAST ROLL CALL POST

2. JUST HIT REPLY, BOTTOM RIGHT) AND THEN LOOK FOR THE QUOTE BOXES.

I'm 37. Chewed copenhagen since 17 years old. I've quit four times - periods of about three years and then quit for a few years each time. Each time it took just one and then I was back at it again, knowing how hard it was to quit every other time. I've been chewing now for about three years straight and lately going through almost two cans a day. I've been reading this site for the past few days and know I cannot chew anymore. I want to believe that I'm commited to quit, that I'll never do it again, that I'm serious this time, that I can make a firm decision. I'm just being honest - I don't trust myself right now. I'm going to spend a lot of time today just making this decision clear and serious and believe it. I know the dangers, guilt, stupidity, etc. I'm taking the 7 point list from "Back Country" and drilling it my mind today. Thanks for your help. Not too familiar with posting, etc so feel free to correct. Not sure if I did the roll call right.
