The Slip!

Posted by pir8fan Jul 25, 2015

I keep reading about people slipping! I realize that it is summer and people are outside doing more things! So, when I see a blog about someone slipping, my first thought is "Oh no, I hope they did not hurt themselves"! Then I start reading and find that they really did hurt themselves! They lost their quit! It is not about someone busting their butt! It is about someone lighting a butt! That is different and worse! You see when you slip and fall that can be an accident, or just being careless!

Lighting a cigarette is at best premeditated carelessness! At worst it is a decision that you made! You may be having a weak moment. You may be stressed. But, it is no accident! You do not walk outside slip, and a lit cigarette falls in your mouth...... just as you inhale! Somebody may have given you one, but you are the one who took it!

My whole point here is that no one else makes you smoke! You do it! When you are having a weak moment, or feeling stressed out, do not reach for a smoke, reach for a friend! If you have not noticed, there are people here, at all hours of the day and night, for the simple purpose of helping you escape the slavery that you have been held in!

The first instinct of people who are slipping and about to fall is reach out for support to keep from falling! The same should apply when you lose your balance in your quit! We are here for you! Reach out for our support! You can do this! We will help!!                   Tommy

..........she was waiting in the parking lot when I got off work! She and her husband were both friends of mine! They were fighting and she said she needed to talk to a man who was not trying to screw her! So we talked! She had been drinking, so I followed her to make sure she got back to the hotel she was staying in. She did not know that I followed! We texted a lot that night as I remained the quiet voice of reason!

The following night they attended a going away party for a mutual friend! Things seemed to be better!

Last night they fought again! She got into the car, and drove it into a tree! Now, I have a friend who is dead, and a friend that has lost his wife!  Dammit!

If there is one thing that this site has taught me, it is that I can't save everyone! And that is always sad!

This time, it has broken my heart!                    

Please don't give your life to smoking!                                Tommy

As we sail our ship through the troubled water of life, everyone, and every event, we encounter is either a Sail, or an Anchor! If we are to reach our destination, we must identify each one of these as such. We must choose our Sails well, and run them high upon the mast, to gather the winds of success. We must also cut loose the Anchors. Identify those people, and events, that would drag us down, or hold us back for their own purposes. They are our Anchors! We must cut them loose!

We must also jetison the dead weight that we are carrying along. The thoughts of inadequacy, and seeds of self doubt, that others have burdened us with, are dead weight. And while this dead weight may not sink your ship, it will make your voyage a longer and harder one!

Keep close watch on your sails! Steer your ship to keep them full of the winds of promise. Beware that some of these sails may fail you! Your most vibrant colored, and strongest sail may fade, and tear away. It may fall useless upon the deck. You may be tempted to keep it, for the good that it has been in the past! Look beyond that temptation. For it will lay there, and rot. It will become more dead weight. Jetison that as well!

Focus on you goal! Keep your Determination at the forefront! For Focus, and Determination are the linchpins of success! So, sail on my Friends! Freedom is not only your destination, it is part of your journey!

As you sail through life, I wish you fair winds, and following seas!           Tommy

Be sure to join us tonight for the summers biggest CELEBRATION of our quits!! Multiply the number of cigarettes you used to smoke in a day, by the number of days since your last one! That is your contribution to the raging inferno!! If you can't make it to the fire please let someone know how many to toss in for you!! ONE MILLION unsmoked cigarettes is always the goal! Last year we had 1,243,000! Lets top that number this year! So, whether you have been quit one day or many, many years, your contribution to the fire matters! Now if you happen to look around tonight and don't see a fire, you are in the wrong place!!

The fire will, begin on Shawns Blog at 7:00 Eastern Time!! Speard the word! Just Shawn, and YOU, and ME, and a few hundred of our closest friends! ARE YOU READY FOR A PARTY???????

This event is brought to you by The Freedom Train! "IF YOU ARE NOT RIDING WITH US, YOU ARE MISSING THE TRAIN"     WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 

Tommy

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the bands which have connected them to their tobacco products, and assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Natures God entitle them, a decent respect of the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes that impell them to the separation!

We hold these truths to be self evident, that all EXer's were created equal, and with equal opportunity to quit, and that they were endowed by their Creator with certain Inalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Clean Lungs!

We, the EXer's do here by solemnly publish and declare that we are independent of tobacco and absolved of any loyalty to the producers thereof.

We the EXer's do here by attach our signatures to this document and mutually pledge to each other to protect our quits with our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor!

Witness my hand! Tommy Piver
