WillpowerSo, as many of you have followed my intro page on the forum, you’ve seen the struggles I’ve gone through thus far in my quit.  I’ve had some snotty calls that have made me crave and most recently, was dumped by the girl I was dating for two years.

I said all that to say this.  KTC is a huge factor in why I’m still quit and typing this at 51 days.  I’ve been through some rough times in 51 days, to say the least.  I went out with some friends last night to clear my head about the break-up.  I packed a couple of beers in an old lunchbox and got in my friend’s truck when she picked me up at the house.  As we’re driving down the road I was attempting to put my keys into the pouch in the front of the lunchbox but there was something in the way.  I pulled out a half full can of dip.  I know it was half-full because I turned the dome light on, opened it and looked at it.  I promptly rolled the window down and emptied it at about 45 mph.

The point I’m making is that anything is possible if you’re stubborn enough.  Some people call this willpower; I’ll stick with stubbornness as it fits my personality better.  Quitting is one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life and I’m thankful every day that I’m doing it.  We all go through tough times.  Going through rough patches while trying to remain quit is really difficult.

Quitting is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  With KTC and some willpower (mostly KTC and the people from it), it’s a lot easier than it would have been on my own.
