Thats what I had to do. I had to not only learn about the tools to quit, but I had to start putting them in motion.
Oh sure, I had plenty of failure along the way. I errr, 'slipped' , as I USED to say a lot. The I became aware...it is a choice, it always has been...My Choice.
I began using the tools i gathered along the way in my quit journey and began really holding onto the people in here that I saw strength in. Actually....that was everyone. So much advice, so much knowledge. Some I agreed with, some I disagreed with some I came to agree with as I developed my knowledge and put it into action.
I believe in EVERYONE who comes to this site. They are here because they want desperately what we have. I know, I was one of them. I ranted and raved, did a lot of whining of my own. It was MY quit after all....and bless you all...you allowed me to own it. Today I am 1083 DOF. Because with your help, I developed a backbone instead of a wishbone. You allowed me the freedom to take what I needed and leave the rest. I was not judged.
Our house is nearing completion. We hope to be moving by the end os September or the first week of October. It has been a hectic summer. I am tired but thrilled to finally reach this point. It is built solid. We put the best materials in it we could afford to maintain a home that should last beyond our lifetime. It was work, lots of work. It will stand for years to come.....and so will my quit.
I put much reading into it. Much study. Leaned on all of you ( thanks so much) when my days were long and weary and I was totally burned out. I prepared well, finally, after several failed attempts. My foundation is rock solid'
I know I can never get complacent. I will protect my quit tillI take my last breath. And....as soon as I am able to get online more, I will continue come here and support those who are in need as it was given to me. This is a beautiful site and ALL of you, new and old, are beautiful dear people. This is doable. This site was a Godsend for me... Stick around. Godbless
