My new blog

February 5th, 2016 at 11:33 am

The good news is that I'm still quitting my smokeless tobacco habit, so there's that.

The other day I mentioned finding a quitters forum. There's also a blog side to that site. I've started blogging there. Right now quitting smokeless is more pressing than guarding my finances, although guarding my finances is no less important than it's been over the past five years.

As I'm sure it's not difficult for you to imagine, the vast majority of participants on the quit site (it's killthecan.org) are males. And what's true here at SA is also true at KTC - the men tend to use the forums, and not the blogs. And, there are no women to use the blogs (It looks like there have been a few women, here and there, but the overwhelming majority of people on the site are men).

So, the blog side of the site is dead. There have been a few valiant tries at getting the blogging going, but it's mostly dead. You can find my blogs at quit4today.com

So far I've got two blog entries, and I'm going to try for a post per day pace.

For some reason, when the most pressing issue in my life was getting out of debt, I found it so much easier to organize my thoughts, and formulate a plan in this blog atmosphere. Now that quitting tobacco is the most pressing issue in my life, I find the same is true. There's a lot of noise on the forum side. It's just that there appears to be no one but the site administrator, who appears to be a good thinking person, following me.

So, I'm trying to promote the blog side in the forums. I'm going to keep blogging, and we'll see where it goes.

I just wanted to drop a line here, and let you all know that I'm still here. I'm still quitting, and I appreciate all that so many of you have done for me over the past five years, but I'll be gone for a while. I'm sure I'll be checking in once in a while. Heck, it's not like I've not dropped out and popped back in several times before. It's just that this time it's a planned drop out.

    It's hard to manage two blogs. I'm attempting it myself! I'm sure we'll hear from you once in awhile, but the most important thing is your health. So keep up the great work!!

    If this is where your attention needs to be to kick the habit for good then the new site is a good thing - we'll see you soon enough! Good luck and keep up the good work!

    I suspect blogging on your new site will be akin to journaling, holding yourself accountable. I look forward to the day you report to say tobacco is no longer an issue. Suggest you continue to track Net Worth and discuss pros and cons of any major expenditure as there are so many different experiences in this group.
