Since I'm a little late to the game, I'll keep things brief.

On July 22, 2016, I made one of the greatest decisions I've ever made which was to untether myself from a demon that has been trying to kill me since I was a kid.

My story is pretty similar to a lot of people here - so I won't bore with much detail: started young and stupid, spent 35 years of my life quitting, caving, lying, trying, failing, and generally feeling lousy about myself, my health, my future, and all the while paying out the proverbial butt for the pleasure of doing it all to myself. Where my story differs a little from many folks here is that my choice of delivery system was a stick - not a pinch. Same poison in my veins.

About 80 or so days ago I found out about this site from a good friend and I have been lurking its hallways ever since. There is simply not a site on the internet that dishes up the special sauce that makes this place work: accountability. Believe me, I've looked, only to come back to KTC with my nose pressed to the window.

After urging from said friend and after having one of those out-of-left-field-WTF-sheer-panic-attack-gut-punch craves that I'm sure many of you are all-too-familiar with - I did what I needed to do to save my quit and posted roll in October. Day 30. It was late but it felt good and I thank October so much for allowing me to be their smokin' token.

I'd be honored to exchange digits and help anyone anyway I can.

I also promise not to bump anyone off roll either - because I know how that upsets you guys. ;)

Glad you are here FLLIP.
Stay strong, I'm with you all the way.

You are a bumper that is for sure, but the only way to screw up roll is to NOT BE ON IT!

Hey FLLipOUT,

I am glad to see that I am not the only person that has problems with the roll call. I generally look at the roll, see who else is on by looking at the bottom left side of the screen. If it is a bunch of folks I come back later. But invariably I step on folks.

I quit for 15 days before posting roll call because I had such a hard time trying to figure out how to post. And I was the VP of a large Systems Group.

I am 60, on day 346 and I still get craves that I have to fight through.

How do I do it? I keep my mind focused on everything but the crave. Get plenty of exercise and drink plenty of fluids.

I quit with you today.

Don't let him bullshit you, FLLipOut.... Pab bumps folks on purpose!!

Seriously though, Glad you are here. You have landed in THE spot to be if you want accountability to help you beat that addiction into submission. This place works, because the folks here have tread the same path you're walking now. We are ALL addicts, and we all know how friggin insidious that weed can be. Quit with you every day of the week and twice on Sundays!!

You, sir, are a legend in the making. You are a great example of brotherhood and accountability. I hope you feel 10' tall today - you've earned it! Enjoy - but trust that although some bumps may be ahead, there is a lot of greatness ahead too.

You are a leader and a winner!
