Break Time!

Posted by pir8fan Sep 19, 2013

Some of you already know that I have been working very hard for the last few weeks, and that most of my efforts here have been directed toward the newcomers! Now it is time for a Vacation! For the next eight days I will not be here! That may make some happy! For the rest of you, I hope you will be happy that I am getting a vacation! In my absence, I am asking you to take good care of each other! Also, if you can, please make a little extra effort to welcome the new people!

In keeping with my often stated vacation preferrences I am going cruising! The first cruise I ever did was an Eastern Caribbean on The Disney Magic! I am recreating that memorable week by taking The Disney Fanatsy on the same itinerary! This will be the first time I have sailed on a ship with no casino since that first one! I am looking forward to week of total relaxation, without the compulsion to stay up and close the casino every night! I wish I could take you all with me(or at least most of you), however the idiots in charge of the Powerball numbers blew it! Maybe next time!

Seeking fair winds, and following seas, I wish you all a Smoke Free week of happiness!            Tommy

OPEN LETTER TO NIKKI!

Posted by pir8fan Sep 6, 2013

I read your blog titled "Sorry"! First of all, you have nothing to be sorry about! Unless you are sorry for the ray of sunshine you bring to the lives of your friends here! Or, unless you are sorry for the way it makes me feel to know that you never forget me in your daily messages!

You have never made a fool of yourself here, and you certainally have not overstayed your welcome! The day that you are not welcome here, I don't want to be here either!

While it is true that the purpose of this site is to help each other quit smoking, and stay quit, if someone gave you the idea that the things that happen in your life are not a part of that, then they are sadly mistaken! How can we give someone the support they need, if we don't know what they are facing?

You are, as you said, a girl with a pretty face, but your true beauty comes from with-in! The joy that you share with us is the measure of your heart! And that is the true measure of a person! As far as you saying you are a girl with problems, well, yes, you are! And I am a guy with problems! And everyone here has problems! The only people without problems are the one who have passed away! As long as we live we will have problems!

If someone has made you feel that airing your problems here is wrong, then that person may well be hiding their own problems, and they will not be solved until they are dragged out into the light of day! And, perhaps their biggest problem is jealousy, caused by their inability to share their problems, so we can help solve them!

At any rate, who ever hurt you was wrong! And they are welcome to PM me and discuss it!

We love you Nikki! And "we" means me, and most everyone here! It should be everyone!    Tommy

Reminder

These things that require a mighty struggle

These things that tax us to the core

These are the things valued highest

These are the things worth fighting for

Transition time!

Posted by pir8fan Sep 2, 2013

I have noticed, and even been reminded, that we have several strong quits in the 150 day range that are finding themselves struggling! And I think I know why! Let me say that "transition time" comes to different people at different times in their quits! Some make a smooth transition, without even realizing it! Some try to think it through, and end up running around in circles! Here is my opinion of what is happening!

At some point in your quit the support group, and family, that you found here seem less needed! Life gets busy, and you really do not have the time to spend here! This site was a tremendious help in the beginning, but you have read it all, and heard it all, and there is really no time to keep seeking knowledge! You know what we are going to say, and you do not need to hear it over and over again!

You may also notice in your 3-D life, all but your most ardent supporter have cooled! "Oh, you quit smoking a few weeks ago! That is great! Tell me, how are you are feeling?" has turned into " Yeah, I know you quit smoking 5 months ago. What kind of bird is that over there?"

You have beaten a deadly addiction! But does that mean that you do not need on-going support? NO! You still need to be aware of the fact that you are addict! You always will be! And, so will I! So, where do you get the strength to keep Free? The same place you found the strength to break Free! Right here!

Only now it is "transition time"! You remember when you first heard me speak of "Collateral Kindness"? Helping yourself by helping others? What a way to quit? What a way to live? Is that ringing a bell? Great! Because now is the time to make the transition from the one who took the kindness that others offered, to becoming the one that offers that kindness to others! Transition from being the recipient of "Collateral Kindness"! Become a Distributor! I know that some of you have started that already! But, now is time to look at this site as a place where you help others, instead of a place where you look to for help! All the help you will ever need, from this point forward, can be found in the satisfaction of other people success! Help other people reach the top of the mountain! And, every time you do, you will find that you are at the summit with them! That my friends is the magic of BecomeanEX! Our Freedom is entertwined! I need those of you who came behind me, to help me stay Focused and Determined. You help me stay Free! And, you need the people that come behind you to help you stay Focused and Determined! Your Freedom is tied to their quest! The more you help others the harder it is to give up your own Freedom! And, the day will come when you will find that you are tied to so much success that it will be IMPOSSIBLE to give up your own! FOREVER FREE! And loving it!!
