  1. After years of many half assed attempts to quit dipping I found myself on the internet looking for something, hell, anything, any other method than the ones I had tried before. I'd buy the replacements because I was going to quit to make someone else happy. My wife, my kids. I'll quit when my son is born. 10 years later, I'll quit when my daughter's born. I don't even remember if I made an effort for those reasons anymore. Probably. I'll be honest, the first few days I posted scroll I was doing it for my wife and kids. That's fine. Whatever it took to get me here. As far I knew at that point I was gonna fail again anyway. At least this time I was gonna try a little harder, right? On day 3 I realized that this posting my promise not to use on scroll, being held accountable by other quitters and engaging with other members was going to work for me. I can still clearly recall that moment. The moment that quit got real. From that moment on I discovered that I have integrity and can keep a simple promise to myself and my quit brother's every day. I also realized that I was never going to succeed trying to be quit for someone else. That day, day 3, I stepped on the road to quitting for myself. When I succeed everyone benefits. Some people get annoyed when I paste the definition of a word into my posts. I'm gonna do it again here because these words are important and this is no time to approach these ideas half-assed. Take your life back, or rather, find your life. That person shoving that shit in his mouth isn't you is it?

  2. My addiction to nicotine began during a smoke break in basic training. I nearly puked while in formation and quickly learned how to be sneaky and gut the spit. Fast forward 32 years and I have now been quit for almost 4 years! Big deal right? Yes it is. I am no longer nicotine's sneaky addict bitch. My attempts to quit over that 29 years are the same as yours most likely. Gum, lozenges, patches, fake. Id stop or do a half ass attempt at weaning using the above methods for 5 to 14 days and be slinking off to buy my addiction the moment my "will power" failed me. Over and over. I've come to realize that it had nothing to do with willpower and everything to do with not really wanting to quit and not quitting for myself. For 29 years I pulled an excuse out of my ass and stuffed my lip with it. How do you go from planned failure to actual quit success? Posting your daily promise on the scrolls and the support of this quit brotherhood. Within this site you will find that brotherhood. The majority of the brotherhood and banter takes place in the forums you will be able to access once you become member. Now is the time for you to dump your cans and worn out excuses down the toilet and post your promise not to use today. It's not a magic formula but then again it is and it works for us every day. Yeah it's a rough few days going cold turkey but you only have to do it once. We've got your back as long as you post to the scroll. Excuses are for failure. We are done with addict excuses at QD. If your sitting on the fence reading this and wondering how the hell this is going to work for you, quit thinking, sign up, post your promise, read the site, participate and become a quitter. Is this the best method? Worked for me and the other members here so the answer is yes. It will work for you also and it's pretty damn simple once you get the hell out of the way and let it happen.
