Volbeat - Still CountingYeah, it’s another song I heard today that reminded me of being a new quitter. I knew how to do this and a bunch of internet guys surely cannot help me because I know myself more than they do. Sound familiar? I am sure most of us were this way when we started and looking back I know how little I knew about what was coming. So tonight I bring you the song “Still Counting” by Volbeat. I have to use already written songs because I don’t have near the creativity our buddy hipster does. So let me lay some lyrics on you, I am sure you will see what I am talking about.

Counting all the assholes in the room
Well I’m definitely not alone, well I’m not alone
You’re a liar, you’re a cheater, you’re fool
Well that’s just like me yoohoo and I know you too
Mr. Perfect don’t exist my little friend
And I tell you it again, and I do it again
Counting all the assholes in the room, Well I’m
definitely not alone, well I’m not alone

I know I am not the only moron who thought dipping and nicotine was cool, so yes we are all assholes for starting it in the first place.  The hardest thing to admit is those 3 descriptors: liar, cheater, fool.  We lied about dip all the time to everyone.  We cheated our family and friends out of our time for a dumb little can.  So new quitter, know you are not Mr. Perfect, you can learn from many here and you are definitely not alone.

Look deep into yourself before you blame all others
for betrayal, for betrayal
I promise, so easy to say, and easy you failed, and you do it again

You can’t quit until you look at yourself and admit your an addict.  It isn’t anyone else’s fault, no one made you do it.  Until we can admit this, we will keep failing.  Sounds like the message new quitters get in chat doesn’t it?  You will keep failing until you quit the way that has worked for all of us.

Well maybe you think your lie is safe
But I read you like a letter, yeah like a letter
Your charm do not evens the pain
it feeds me with rage, and you do it again

For all the cavers and people who have it all figured out, people can see it.  Anything you tell yourself about it being ok to go back or have just one, it’s a lie and you shouldn’t take comfort in it.  And yes, everytime you lie you get the rage of quitters.  Do you know why?  They give a damn and want to help you or they would not be checking on you and getting pissed off.  Take the help they offer.

And a gangster keeps on telling
That he got a song that matters
So I flip a coin towards him
Thank you very much for listening

Some times no matter how much you tell them, there is always someone who has a better way.  There are many that have learned to walk away from these people, mainly because they don’t want help.  I had to learn, you cannot help an addict who doesn’t want to quit.  All of this is hard to see for new quitters, but I thank the guys with way more quit than I have that helped me realize that point.

We are here to help you if you want to quit.  Here is the link to the song,  I get a lot of inspiration from this kind of music, I guess it is my distraction to help me quit.
