The Cold Bather’s Creed

Updated: Jun 30, 2023

This is my cold tub. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My cold tub is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

Without me, my cold tub is useless. Without my cold tub, I am useless. I must dip in my tub true. I must dip every day, as life is trying to kill me. I must dip before the day comes to a close. I will...

My cold tub and I know that what counts in life is not the jobs we hold, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the dips that count. We will dip...

My cold tub is human, even as I [am human], because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its filter, and its Inkbird. I will keep my cold tub clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...

Before you, I swear this creed. My cold tub and I are the defenders of my sanity. We are the masters of our minds. We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until victory is in my heart and there is no enemy, but peace!
