  2. Another dip-free night on the recliner at the new house. Gotta get up early so I can get to the old house to get my day job clothes on and get to work on time. I'm exhausted...so much so that I can't even find an uplifting bikini picture to share.

Tomorrow will be one month for me and we'll have some fun...guaranteed that there'll be bikini's, blow up dolls, midigets, gerbils, Jello and some new attractions. I'm still quit and I'm gonna get some sleep.

  11. Euty, I had my first run with QS in 2004 and I hung around for years after I was comfortable with being quit. I remember you, I remember when you first quit and I commend you for remaining committed to your quit. You're doing good!! When I first logged in on QS I was greeted by Hoop...and I felt like I was being greeted by a Drill Sergeant. It's because of Hoop that I stayed. Had I have been greeted with fluff and emotion...I wouldn't have stayed and wouldn't have made it that 10 years. I'm 15 days into my new quit and I'm the newest member....Christ, 4660 days ago you didn't see one new member every 2 weeks...you saw new members daily. How many members did you have in your group in 2006? I'll bet at least 20 with some falling out later. I don't believe that membership to the site is a result of a drastic reduction of people chewing. I think it's safe to assume that there's a similar amount of people chewing now as there was 15 years ago. You'd have to assume that of those people there are the same amount of people wanting to quit as there was 15 years ago. I've seen 12 "guests" here once and I'm the newest member after 15 days.??? You continue supporting lurkers to quit your way and I'll continue to encouraging lurkers the way that started my 10 year quit.
  12. Actually, yes. In 04 I was a lurker, I then joined the site and proudly posted that I was planning on quitting on some random date in the future. A gentleman veteran named Hoopity explained to me in no uncertain terms that I was a dumbass and that I need to pull my head out of my ass and the dip out of my mouth right then. I did so and that was the beginning of a 10 year quit. I'm back here now on day 11 because I drifted away from the site and lost the accountability. Reading is fine but accountability is key...some people need a little nudge to begin their journey. Not getting a single new member in a week isn't a glowing testament that all's fine. Having one person in a quit group (such as mine) isn't an indication that all's fine. Time to try something different.
  13. Eight guests on right now and I'm still the newest member of the site...that's some crazy bat shit stuff right there! Well, I guess if you carry your sack in a man-purse it is easier to read about people having quit than it is to actually quit yourself. What are you eight hoping to gain by lurking in the shadows? Heaven forbid you being accountable to people that want to see you succeed in your quit. You know, we really do want to see you kick this bitch and we can help you do it when you exit from the shadows and post day 1 in your Sept group.
  14. Ten guests on the site now...what has to happen to get one of you to decide that you've had enough of being a slave to dip?? I dipped cope for 23 years, found QS and quit for 10 years and that would not have happened without the support from the people here. I screwed up and took a cigar and I caved. I'm back here on day 8 and I should be at day 15 years. I own my mistake and I'm here again to make sure that I remain accountable to the people that I know from 15 years ago and to the people that I never got the opportunity to meet since I left. I have a dry erase board in my office and I have my days quit written on there. I have informed my two dip suppliers that I quit (they were glad about it), I have informed my friends and family...I have gone all in and am completely transparent. It's called accountability and I'm going to get as much as I can. For you guests, I played that game too. Lurking around, reading but not committing to my quit. Afraid that I might fail and be embarrassed. Knowing that I needed to quit but not quite willing to give up the nic bitch. All of us here on QS have lived exactly what you're going through...you're not unique. This site is full of people that had no idea they had the strength to quit and yet they did. The great people on this site know each stage of a quit and can explain what you're going through and help you through it. We're standing by ready to help you save your life...all you have to do is stop being a bystander and take that first step. I'm sure that there's some people that love you that would like you to take that step.
  15. Why is my name still in the "most recent member" box?? Christ Almighty...what's it gonna take for a Guest to actually take control of their addiction and their life. Get registered and lets get this quit on the road!
  16. OK, so there's 6 guests on the site right now. What the hell is the matter with you guys? Sneaking around in the shadows isn't gonna cut it...get your ass registered and go post in your Sept group. Once you register, you will see member areas of the site and you will have the full advantage of the site to help with your quit. I challenge you guests to grow some sack and get registered and post a hello in your Sept group.
  17. Well, I spend part of my work day in my office in front of a computer. I'll be able to use some of that time stirring up the shit around here. People naturally go to places where it's fun, where they can laugh and feel safe. As you know, quitting is hard and scary and stressful...coming to a place where you're surrounded by people going through the same things as you and are having some fun and laughs is bound to bring people out of the shadows. I'll do whatever I can to help...helping others helps me and adds a greater level of accountability to my quit.
  18. Thanks RWM, I noticed the site being less active than it was years ago but I also notice that there's 6-10 "visitors" on at any particular time. These visitors need to be convinced to register and come out of the shadows. Current quitters also need to spread the word about QS to the people in their lives that also chew. I posted earlier this morning in the open part of the site to the people that are hiding in the shadows...we need to get these people signed up, motivated and accountable.
  19. I quite often see 6-8-10 Guests looking around the site at any given time. It's great that you all have found the site and are looking around. It's great that you are reading about the experiences of past quitters that have preceeded you. There's one problem though, you are not using the site to its fullest extent, you are not using the site in such a way that increases your chances for a successful quit. It's simple, register to the site...it's fast, simple and free. Once you're registered, quit dipping and find your group. If you're having troubles, just ask and you will be helped. Each day after your quit, come to your group and post a roll-call. If during your quit, you're having unmanageable cravings or some other struggle, come to your group and post about it, you'll be talked through it. The whole premise of the site is accountability and being a Guest doesn't give you that accountability. You have to register, post roll in your group and ask for help if/when you need it. You're here for a reason, you want to quit, you're thinking about quitting. You're a Guest for a reason too, you're afraid to commit to saving your life. You're afraid to possibly start something you might fail at. You know you need to quit but are afraid that you're not strong enough. We have ALL been there. There's a million excuses why not to get your ass in here but there's one reason to...you're killing yourself if you don't. Register now and lets get this quit started.
  20. Well, I'm back. Not proud of what I did but I'm here to make it right. My QS name is Capt. Kirk and I was in the Freedom Marchers back in...I think it was 2005. Back then, I quit and became active in the site. I used the site most every day and built some friendships. I made it to the HOF (I just read my speech there) and I was on my way. I remained on the site to continue helping myself while hoping to provide help to others. Time went on, life got in the way and I felt firmly anchored in my quit...I was fine. Ten years after quitting, I got a job flying float planes in SW Alaska for the same company my brother flies for. During a period between flights, I was being ravaged by mosquitos and another pilot handed me a cigar. I lit it, puffed it (didn't inhale) and blew the smoke to clear the bugs. It wasn't long before I was just chewing on the cigar and, of course, the natural progression was to the tin. Here I am after 14 years and, after a 10 year failed quit. I'm ready to get this done. Hey Flavius, can you email me at my township address...I'd like to keep my original user account if possible
