  1. I was able to quit dipping because I give these guys my word daily. Somehow the days add up and you become the man you were supposed to be. No one was created to be a slave to a plant. I know now that it was holding me back. Keeping me from enjoying life to the fullest. Making me look small to friends and family. Contributing to stress. Making me a slave. A powerless bitch. Now? I am a fucking bad ass. I quit dipping. Even though I will always be an addict, I never think about or consider using chewing tobacco anymore. I would have never thought that to be possible but it's true. Here there are a bunch of bad ass quitters that are a few weeks, months, or years ahead of where you are tonight. We all decided that we were going to grow up and not be a pussy anymore. We've all been sitting where you are tonight. If you do the work, our method is 100% guaranteed. We are here to help. Holding on to a “trophy can” to prove you are strong enough to look at it without using it? Dumb. Think you need to keep a can for “just in case”? There is absolutely no sense in keeping an emergency can around. That's like an alcoholic keeping a sixer in the fridge, just in case. Neither are fully invested in their quits. If you don't fully invest, you fail. There are a bunch of guys in your corner, rooting for you to win. You need to quit dipping, it could save your life. There is nothing that fucking evil weed ever did for you except get its hooks in you, and make you pay a shit-ton of money for a chance at cancer. Fuck that. You made a great decision to quit, now it's just a matter of sticking to the plan. Fight through this shit minute by minute if you have to. You put your name on scroll, promising not to use. That's a promise you made to yourself, and to all of us. A real man of integrity never goes back on his promises ... his word carries value. Wake up tomorrow, and first fucking thing make that promise here on scroll. Once completed, using is off the table! That's the beauty of our system. Embrace it, freedom is on the other side!! It's gonna suck until it doesn't. We're all here to tell you, from 7 days quit to 2000+ days quit ... the juice is worth the squeeze. Another reason this website works, the reason you see so many large numbers is that we all realize there is no reset button here. We take pride in knowing that others can put a value to our promise. If you yourself think maybe you can't keep a promise, you're toast. This will be just another stoppage ... not a quit. Don't be that dude. Don't be a disappointment, again. Sure, in the past some of us tried quitting dip and failed ... but that was when we were depending on our friends/family for accountability. They can’t hold you accountable, because they are not willing to throw away that relationship just because you went back on your promise to never dip again. Once we bought into the support group here at QD, everything changed. We became part of a community of badass former addicts. There is no god damn way I'll ever disappoint myself, or the quitters here ... never. Once you want that level of quit, you just need to execute. Listen, read, learn. It's time to Quit Dipping. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know that. People don't casually browse the internet for cures to an addiction that you don't have. You know you are addicted, whether you admit or not. You're not sure? Have you ever tried to quit before, and failed? How many times? No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we all know it hasn’t worked. This place will. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. We know, because we all survived them. They're actually not that hard to manage if you have the correct mindset. No, you're not more addicted than we were. No, we don't care what brand you used to chew. Yes, you can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”. Your life will improve dramatically once you quit dipping. You might remember stopping for a few weeks, and you have an idea that it was hell 'because you had quit'. It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine. The only thing that you need to do to succeed in a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, listen to the advice of the members, and follow the only two rules we have here.... Post your promise not to dip every morning, and keep your word.  If you are ready to quit, go to today's Quit Scrolland post your name and Day 1. Look for messages on the scroll or in your inbox from other dudes who have done this already. Or start an intro, and you can have a centralized place for people to welcome you, offer some advice, or kick your ass when you need it. If you think you are not ready to quit, what are you waiting for?
  2. We are here to help you quit dipping and nothing less. This is not your standard half assed group of people that stop chewing tobacco, but then start bailing out at day 10 because they are cured, or decide that they really wanted to dip all the time, not be free of addiction. We have seen a lot of bad reasons for being here and a lot bad excuses to start again. Only the idea that you are here to save yourself, and an attitude that you hate what nicotine has done to you will lead to success. So what's it gonna be? Are you here because quitting will make other people happy? Or have you had enough of this addiction? This is the time and the place that you will succeed, but you gotta do it and we are here to celebrate your success. Planning to win? Flush your bag of addict excuses down the toilet and realize that nicotine is aimed at killing you and is not a warm fuzzy little wubby that we run back to when we have a few drinks or wanna get back at the wife. Just to clarify - it is easy to quit dipping once you get the right mindset and get past the initial withdrawal symptoms. Make your promise to quit dipping today, and keep it, and you will be looking back on a week, then a month, then a year before you know it because you have quit as of today.Take your quit seriously and we will take you seriously. THE TIME TO QUIT DIPPING IS RIGHT NOW. And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting cold turkey, with the help of other quitters. The method that we use here. If you found Quitting Dip, you’ve been struggling with nicotine for a long time. You have probably tried to quit. Perhaps you’ve even admitted to yourself that you are addicted to chewing tobacco. No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we both know it hasn’t worked. Otherwise, you would be quit, like the rest of us. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. You can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”. Your life will improve dramatically once you quit dipping. You might remember stopping for a few weeks, and you have an idea that it was hell 'because you had quit'. It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine. The only thing that you need to do to participate in a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, follow the advice of the members, and follow the only two rules we have here....Post your promise not to dip every morning, and keep your word. If you are ready to quit dipping, post up on the Plebe Scroll. Otherwise, visit the support center, or read some speeches.
  3. Before quitting dip, I dipped for 20+ years and by the end was completely controlled by nicotine, desperately looking for a way to quit dipping. I found this place and found that making a promise 1st thing every day... that I wasn't going to dip... was- and is- the only way I would be able to quit chewing tobacco. Take the option off the table every day with your word. Keep your word, and repeat.  Think you can’t get through the routines of life if you quit dipping? Yeah, we all used to dip after every meal. I used to dip every time I shit too. I convinced myself I couldn't shit without it. Having a meal or needing to shit without a can in my pocket would induce panic. Guess what? Now that I have quit dipping, I can still eat and take a dump. I haven't chewed after a meal in years, and I have shit at least once a day every day for years, without dip. I enjoy my meals much more now that I am not racing through my meals to get to my dip, and I can shit much more easily now that I am not shitting three or four times a day because of the laxative I was putting in my lip all day. Or maybe it wasn’t a laxative at all. Maybe I was just forcing myself to shit that often because it gave me an excuse to sit on the toilet and dip in private.  Life is much better when you are not a slave. Let go of all of that old shit and embrace the system here…Post your number, learn how to speak and live Quit, build a hatred for that controlling poison. You will honestly have to “learn” how to do some things without dip, and you’ll be very worried that they’re not possible without dip. Even an active addict like yourself has to realize that that notion is simultaneously absurd, and terrifying. Absurd because…. Of course you can take a shit without nicotine. Terrifying because… until you actually quit dipping, you will be convinced that you can’t do certain activities without it… that’s the level of control that nicotine has over you right now. You have realized that treating an addiction to dip like a bad habit, doesn't work. To quit dipping you have to treat the addiction like an addiction. You know you have to quit, but you don't know yet that you can live every day without it. That is what it means to truly quit dipping. In time we'll teach you everything you need to know to be able to 100% say that you will never again use nicotine in any form...ever. Today, let's focus on posting a day 1 on scroll, and then through the couple of hours.
  4. Why have you failed at all previous attempts to quit dipping? I know why I failed every previous attempt. I failed to quit chewing tobacco because I wasn't here. I didn’t get any help to quit dipping, and relied solely on myself. And myself was always a fucking bitch. The first thing you deal with when quitting chewing tobacco is the real physical withdrawal side, and since most people have at least halfway attempted to quit dipping in the past, you should know the routine... Withdrawal symptoms from quitting dip can include insomnia, sweating, headaches, constipation, irritability, and anxiety. How do you combat the symptoms of quitting dip? First, know that they will pass. This only lasts few days. To alleviate them, go sweat somewhere, whether its running, hitting the gym, or just walking around the block. Don’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself. Do something. But first, put your name on the quit scroll and you have accomplished the most important part of how to quit dipping, making a promise to other people and yourself. A promise to quit dipping to people that don’t accept failure and weakness. Remember this- work fucking sucks no matter what, [or they wouldn’t have to pay you], but today it is more productive than usual, because someone is paying you to go through withdrawal from dip. That's win win. Tough it out, take a walk around the block, drink lots of water. Bitch and moan here if you are feeling sorry for yourself. That's one of the fringe benefits of a quitting dip support group. We know what you’re going through, and we’ll tell you if it is normal, when you need to do something differently, or to just stop being a pussy. One of two things is inevitable for a nicotine addict, premature death or quitting. Choose quitting. Drink a lot of water, while you're sweating and after you’re done. Use substitutes like jerky chew, fake dip, hard candy, gum, and seeds. Anything without nicotine in it. Some guys would stick coffee grounds or even grass in their lip. Sleep whenever you can. Get in here and talk shit to quitters before you freak out on your family. But the biggest thing to remember is that a lot of this is mental. The reason that you make a promise every single morning, is that it makes it so that chewing tobacco is not an option. Not if you are going to keep your word. There is no reason to have a debate with yourself about dipping today. Since it is no longer an option, there is no reason to obsess about it. Think about something else. Put that promise up every morning and it's never an option.
  5. Are you here because you are having a health scare? Do you have a little boo boo in your mouth that you think is cancer? Well, it’s probably not. Does that mean it’s not time to quit dipping? Does your throat hurt real bad? Think you’re going to have to use one of those vibrator things for the rest of your life? Fuck your pain in the throat, pussy. It means nothing. It’s probably not related to your chewing. Does that make you want to chew again? If so, pack your bags, bitch. We didn’t quit dipping because of a sore throat, we didn’t quit dipping because our doctor said to, and we didn’t quit dipping because our wife said we had to. We quit because we wanted to be free of addiction. Because we couldn't bear to live under the yoke of slavery to nicotine. Because we wanted to be in control of our lives. Because we wanted to live. The first thing you need to understand is what QUIT is. It isn’t sitting around lamenting about the fact you used to chew, lusting for it like some chick you banged for a while, and it's not about being nervous you might run into a tough situation like a long drive, or dipping when you are sad or stressed out. It's knowing that nicotine never helped you, and did nothing for you. That you don't give a fuck about anything else except the fact that you are in control of yourself. That you have no desire to chew. Right now you might be having physical withdrawal, your body might start doing whatever it can to make you feel like you need it. That’s different than wanting to chew. I've got good news, if you "don't want to chew again" you never will again. Because unlike what that statement makes it sound like, no one accidentally has a dip, and there is definitely no chance someone sticks a gun to your head and forces you to dip. Talking like a passive observer who is hoping for the best is not going to work. Talk like you have a pair, and also give a shit about the outcome. If you're here to "try" and "hope," don't bother. Start speaking all quit and only quit right now, because it is the only way to make it. Your actions will follow your words, actions become habits, and habits become character, Whether you want to believe it or not, (because it makes you accountable), you are responsible for all of your actions. You are the master of your fate. I WILL NOT EVER CHEW TOBACCO AGAIN. That's a fucking promise. I make it every day, and that promise is rock solid. If I commit to making it every day, this shit isn't even difficult. Go ahead, think about it. If you make that promise every morning, you only have two options. Quit dipping, or break your word. If breaking your word is an option, this place is not for you. Will you make a promise to quit every day? Will you keep your word? Will you commit to doing those simple steps every day in order to save your life and be free? If yes, this shouldn't be hard. Fuck one day at a time. Take the pressure away. Commit. Every day. There is no excuse, there is no reason, there is no anything that will lead to a place where nicotine is anything other than poison. It's time to Quit Dipping. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know that. People don't casually browse the internet for cures to an addiction that you don't have. You know you are addicted, whether you admit or not. You're not sure? Have you ever tried to quit before, and failed? How many times? No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we all know it hasn’t worked. This place will. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. We know, because we all survived them. They're actually not that hard to manage if you have the correct mindset. No, you're not more addicted than we were. No, we don't care what brand you used to chew. Yes, you can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”. Your life will improve dramatically once you quit dipping. You might remember stopping for a few weeks, and you have an idea that it was hell 'because you had quit'. It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine.

If you think you are not ready to quit, what are you waiting for?
  6. Although we tell new dudes to just focus on a single day of quitting, so as to not get overwhelmed, quitting dipping means that you are never going to do it again... So you’ve never quit dipping before, everything else was a stoppage. If you are ready to quit dip, you don't need to worry about saying "maybe" this time will be different. It’s already different because you are here. Previous stoppages probably involved “white knuckling”... spending all day wishing you were chewing tobacco again. Guys that have quit dipping don't have that problem. Relax and get ready to feel much better this time, if you are ready to do things our way. It involves changing your mindset, changing the way you think about dip, changing the way you talk about dip. It’s not something that you don’t GET to do anymore, it’s something you don’t HAVE to do anymore. Because although you don’t understand this yet, dipping has not been a privilege or a reward, it has been a requirement... mandated by your addiction. Time to tell addiction to fuck off. Fuck nicotine. This tough crowd has seen a lot of guys fail because they weren't committed and felt sorry for themselves. We all used to be slaves to the can. Its a son of a bitch who controlled our lives, fucked with our relationships, had people questions our morals, etc. All for a fucking weed that gives us cancer! For us, there was no choice, we had to quit. So there is no reason for us to worry about people who are a "maybe”. Quit dipping or die. Post your promise not to dip today. Keep that promise, and we promise to not dip with you, and will support you in any way you need. THE TIME TO QUIT DIPPING IS RIGHT NOW. And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting cold turkey, with the help of other quitters. The method that we use here. If you found Quitting Dip, you’ve been struggling with nicotine for a long time. You have probably tried to quit. Perhaps you’ve even admitted to yourself that you are addicted to chewing tobacco.

  7. I had some stoppages over the years before I quit chewing tobacco. I'd say i was done, throw away a can & then spend a few weeks sad, mopey and missing the can, all the while patting myself on the back. Then, I'd find a great excuse to buy another one.... traffic was bad, wife's a cunt, my pinky toe hurts, must be a lack of copenhagen.... and the stoppage would be over.  Then one day, I decided i wanted to quit dipping. I didn't want to die. I found these assholes & haven't looked back. I don't ever have a single solitary thought about dipping anymore. It's hard to comprehend right now for you. Your body will be detoxing that shit. Your addict mind is going to fuck with you hard for a while. We've all been there & here we are. Still standing and still quit. I'm convinced that the reason this is my quit and not a stoppage is that I bought into this system from Day 1.  It's time to Quit Dipping. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know that. People don't casually browse the internet for cures to an addiction that you don't have. You know you are addicted, whether you admit or not. You're not sure? Have you ever tried to quit before, and failed? How many times? Have you ever tried nicotine replacement therapies, but found that you are still craving, irritable, and miserable? Ever pulled your patch off so you can have a real one, "when you really needed it"? Ever had a girlfriend or wife lay down the law, "it's me or the dip"? And, of course you chose her. But not really, so you had to take your dipping underground for a while? Ever thrown a tin out of a window, only to find yourself looking through the bushes later? Digging through dumpsters? I could go on and on. Yeah, you're in the right place. No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we both know it hasn’t worked. This place will. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. We know, because we all survived them. No, you're not more addicted than we were. No, we don't care what brand you used to chew. Yes, you can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”. Your life will improve dramatically once you quit dipping. You might remember stopping for a few weeks, and you have an idea that it was hell 'because you had quit'. It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine. The only thing that you need to do to succeed in a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, listen to the advice of the members, and follow the only two rules we have here.... Post your promise not to dip every morning, and keep your word.
  8. Looking for some kind of sign that you need help quitting dip? The fact that you have tried to quit before, but didn’t, is the only real sign you need. You're an addict. We all had a moment like you’re having right now. We realized that we were fucked, and needed help, but we all struggled with pulling the trigger before finally choosing to say FUCK YOU to nicotine slavery. We’ve all got the same back story. We all started using casually, and at some point became addicted. Beyond that, you won’t find a way to relate to anyone here while your face is buried in the can. You won’t find a common connection with the people here until you quit dipping. You have been a big pussy, but that’s just because you've never met anybody who's QUIT. I'm quit. So is everyone here. Getting started isn't hard. dump the shit out in the toilet, put day 1 on the plebe scroll, and buckle up. That means you're not going to dip for the rest of the day. Keep your word. No matter what. Yeah, your body is going to freak out because it is in withdrawal from a drug. Isn't that scary? Get through the day. You are not a passive victim, you are re-taking control of your body and your mind. Drink lots of water, get outside and sweat as much as you can. If you're in terrible shape, grab a bottle of water and walk for a couple hours today, or this evening if you're at work. If you're in good shape, go fucking berzerk at the gym. Wake up tomorrow and post Day 2. This will suck, and then it won't. Quit dipping, and we will become your brothers, and we will quit with you every day. The only things truly not tolerated here are using nicotine and any actions that are likely to lead you down that path. We'll show you the right actions and the right path. This is a forum focused on fighting our common addiction. No one is going to beg you to stay. We are not trying to convert people. If you don’t want to quit dipping, we can’t help you. This place also isn’t a prison - the door to the exit is right there on the X button that closes this browser. If you want to go back to your nicotine addiction, we don’t give a shit, don’t waste our time or yours. Fuck off. How does Quitting Dip work? Post to the quit scroll. Do it right now. Then again tomorrow morning right after you wake up and start your day. Just like you used to put in your chewing tobacco first thing in the morning. If you don’t do it first thing, and you wait until the end of the day, it isn't a promise to quit dipping, it's a status update. Here you make your promise to us and yourself early, and you don't break your promise. If you want to talk about how hard quitting is and how you gave it a shot but it's just too hard, go share your bitching with your Facebook friends. Quitting dip isn't hard.... Quitters are hard.
  9. We all were totally irrational about nicotine before we quit dipping - whether it's crawling around outside in the dark looking for the tin you "threw" away in the yard or digging through all your shorts cause you are "sure" you left a spare can in one pair. After quitting dip, it does get tons better and you WILL be able to do all the things that are now major triggers for dipping. We all had a million triggers; golfing, watching sports, grilling, yard work, long drives, taking a shit. Hell I couldn't walk from here to there without my mind saying - "ok, time for some more nicotine". The only way it's possible to quit dipping is if you post your promise first thing everyday that you won't use nicotine today. I'll do the same and you can count on that. You're not special. We were all exactly where you are right now. You will never miss dip, stop romanticizing it and start hating it. It controlled your fucking life, man. It controlled your every waking thought. Do I have enough for tonight? When can I buy another can? Did I leave my can in my house/car/drawer? When can I get away from all of these people so that I can put that stupid shit in my lip???? Once you've achieved the freedom we all have, you'll realize that everything is so much better when you quit dipping. Everything. I didn't think I could ever take a long drive again either, now I hate the pussy that even thought that. Stop sounding like you're mourning the loss of your dog. Stop anthropomorphizing it at all. It's a weed. You are claiming victory over a shitty addiction that made you a gigantic loser. Get pissed. Get righteous. GET QUIT. It only takes a few days. Enjoy the suck of your brain re-wiring as it frees itself from the chains of the addiction you subjected it to for years. Welcome to the new you. THE BEST TIME TO QUIT DIPPING IS RIGHT NOW. And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting cold turkey, with the help of other quitters. The method that we use here. If you found Quitting Dip, you’ve been struggling with nicotine for a long time. You have probably tried to quit. Perhaps you’ve even admitted to yourself that you are addicted to chewing tobacco.

It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine.

  10. Why have you failed at all previous attempts to quit dipping? I know why I failed every previous attempt. I failed to quit chewing tobacco because I wasn't here.

  11. Do you think you are going to "miss" dip, if you quit dipping? Do you feel like dip is your friend, a constant companion? A trusted buddy who is always there for you when you need it? That lucky charm which is always with you in the good times? That kind of thinking is poison when it’s time quit dipping. We call it dip “romancing”. In order to be successful, you have to change your whole mindset. It’s not that hard, because dip romancing is all a lie. Dip isn’t your friend. It’s a parasite. It wasn’t your companion, it was an anchor you were dragging along. It wasn’t there to help any needs... except getting rid of the withdrawal symptoms it’s absence was causing in the first place.. It didn’t make the good times, the good times were in spite of it. How can you control romancing the can after you have quit dipping? Slap yourself across the face every time you think like that, if you need to. No bullshit. That will get real tired, real fast.One of our members talks about dropping down and doing 10 pushups every time he thought about having a dip after he quit dipping. It's called negative reinforcement. It discourages weak thoughts. Other methods... a strong rubber band around your wrist. When you think about chew, you snap that rubber band so hard it hurts. I used to stop whatever I was doing and audibly say "Shut the fuck up". Some guys who have quit chewing tobacco recommended putting your balls in a drawer and slamming it shut. I never tried that one. But how can you spend time here, on a website that is all about how to quit dipping, without thinking about dipping? I am on this site all the time, and I never think about dipping. I think about quitting. They are different things. Guys who think about dipping act like they are missing out when they quit chewing tobacco, and they are going to fail. Guys who think about quitting think about the feelings that drove them to quit in the first place. Whether or not they know it, the biggest thing that drove people to find this place was a desire from freedom. Get the monkey off your back, and quit dipping. It's time to Quit Dipping. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know that. People don't casually browse the internet for cures to an addiction that you don't have. You know you are addicted, whether you admit or not. You're not sure? Have you ever tried to quit before, and failed? How many times? Have you ever tried nicotine replacement therapies, but found that you are still craving, irritable, and miserable? Ever pulled your patch off so you can have a real one, "when you really needed it"? Ever had a girlfriend or wife lay down the law, "it's me or the dip"? And, of course you chose her. But not really, so you had to take your dipping underground for a while? Ever thrown a tin out of a window, only to find yourself looking through the bushes later? Digging through dumpsters? I could go on and on. Yeah, you're in the right place. No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we both know it hasn’t worked. This place will. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. We know, because we all survived them. No, you're not more addicted than we were. No, we don't care what brand you used to chew. Yes, you can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”. Your life will improve dramatically once you quit dipping. You might remember stopping for a few weeks, and you have an idea that it was hell 'because you had quit'. It was hell because you didn’t know how to quit until now. We’ll change your mindset, and we will lay out the timeline of quitting nicotine. The only thing that you need to do to succeed in a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, listen to the advice of the members, and follow the only two rules we have here.... Post your promise not to dip every morning, and keep your word.
