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? Time to find out.
