  1. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. I built up to my quit date for a while…. lurking on this site from time to time. Finally got the balls and made the decision to put myself out there and hold myself accountable, and make myself accountable to others... Making the decision to quit dipping freaked me out a bit. I dipped for the last 15 years or so. About a can a day. Always coming back to it. I always said I'm going to quit dipping but the first sign of stress, or anything really, was used as an excuse to pick up another tin. I definitely needed something to keep me in line. This forum is that something. I am free. Yeah dipping is totally stupid and disgusting. It's sad to be addicted to something that you're embarrassed to be doing, but you still won't quit dipping. I heard so much shit over it from my family for years but I didn't care, my nicotine addiction was more important than my family. I had to ninja dip around wife for years because she thought I'd already quit. Then she finally just accepted it and it was on after that. You know, I never considered myself an addict just because I dipped. Addicts are people addicted to drugs like heroin or pills these days, not a plant that local farmers grow and I grew up working in during summer to make money. I just didn't get it until I started reading stuff on here. Tobacco isn't portrayed as a drug elsewhere. Admitting to myself that I was an addict put things in perspective. Learning about addiction helps with the quitting dipping process. Yes, I'm an addict and wasted over 15 years of my life addicted to nicotine. I'm here to quit and stay quit . I went through some crazy transitions during my early quit. Changed careers, bought a house, moved, had a third baby. All shit that was stressful. None of it was harder without dip. Quite the opposite. Fuck triggers. They are for people who think dip helps any situation. I fucking don't. Every new dude here will understand this, if they are willing to become bad mother fuckers like us. Personally, I made a conscious decision to just not use nicotine anymore, no matter what. When you are certain about a life altering CHOICE like that, and add in the 100% of brotherhood and accountability you will receive at QuittingDip, you will have to willfully choose to use again. There is no way of "slipping" or losing yourself in a moment. QD is 100% effective if you post your promise first thing daily and your word is honorable. Life got better for me when I quit dipping 17 months ago. When you are bored, you should search out some Centurion speeches, and you'll get an idea of what roads we've been down. You should read all those stories, because they all should resonate with you too. It helps to get a feel for each quitter and that helps with forging relationships. The good news is if you do the work and commit yourself to getting your self control back, you will be able to start over in life, no matter how old you are. Just by being here and actively quitting dipping, it is a great start to the rest of your life. I quit with you today.
  2. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. Are you thinking about quitting dipping, but you're worried about nicotine withdrawal symptoms? Sweats? Insomnia? Trouble shitting? Can't eat or can't stop eating? Teeth and gums hurting? Ready to flip the hell out on someone for no reason? Yes, those are withdrawal symptoms of quitting dip... and if this is your first or second day, It's probably going to get worse before it gets better, but if you stay focused and keep your eye on the prize, the withdrawal can be viewed as nothing more than discomfort. All that discomfort is your body getting better. And you can mitigate the discomfort with some simple changes to the way you normally do things. You can manage the symptoms for the short duration of physical withdrawal. After about 4 days, all of the nicotine is out of your system. Then it is all mental. When you feel a crave, slow down time, breath deep and focus on it for a second. It will go away whether you feed it or not. If you don't, they will get less powerful and eventually stop all together.. Bottom line- get on the scroll to make your promise, keep your word, and you will be through the withdrawal soon enough. Don't be a pussy. The nicotine has controlled YOU for so long, now you are taking control of it. It's one powerful substance, and the parts of your brain that are addicted are going to fight like hell. But you're more powerful, you’ve got this. You are stomping the guts out of that little voice that keeps mentioning dip. Do whatever it is that you have to, within reason, to keep stomping. I can remember on day #3 balling my fist up and punching myself in the face, it hurt like hell, it didn't knock any sense into me either but it did help keep that shit out of my mouth. You can beat this addiction on a daily basis. Dip is not and has never been your friend. It was your fix/crutch/weakness... Would a friend steal your money and health, try to kill you and take you away from your family? Are you worried you won’t be able to handle all of the routines of your life without your little anchor? Believe it or not, after you quit dipping you can do anything without nicotine. I like to hunt like you. Think of how many more deer you'll see if they don't smell your nasty skoal breath. The rest of the non-addict world doesn't have any problem doing routine things without it...neither will you, if you quit dipping. Don't get me wrong, quitting dip is a struggle at times, but also empowering. Every time you beat a crave, you gain power. Learn to hate nicotine. You control your actions and don't have to be a slave to a little weed any longer. If you choose to use, you lose. Come here and tell your story, rant, bitch, whine...whatever. Just immerse yourself in this place and learn all you can. Knowledge is your super power against your addiction. And that is what it is, an addiction. It's time to Quit Dipping. 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 Scroll and 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?
  3. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. Welcome to Quitting Dip. It's pretty simple, we quit dipping, counting one day at a time. We make a promise to quit chewing tobacco to ourselves and our fellow quitters first thing each day, and we keep our word. Above all, we are honest here and men of our word. Trust is paramount. We call this first few days of quitting dip, and the withdrawl symptoms of cold turkey “the suck”, because, well, it sucks. Things are probably going to suck for a little while, but you don't need to worry about that. You just need to worry about today. That said, in deciding to quit dipping, you've made the best decision of your life. Prepare by planning on drinking plenty of water to flush out the nicotine, and consider exercising to power through the worst parts. Find something to do with your mouth… many have found success with gum, sunflower seeds, hard candy and even fake chew (contains no nicotine). We are 100% nicotine free and don't practice nicotine replacement therapy. It doesn't work. Quitting Dip does. You should find yourself on this forum a lot. Reach out to your bros here and read all the information you can. Rage here and express your frustration and don't take it out on your family. We all know what you are going through....we've all been there and we all made it through. You can too. It will get better.  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.
  4. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. If you quit dipping, you may or may not have dodged the cancer bullet. We all danced with that shit, playing Russian Roulette with our lives. You can’t change history, but you can change the future. One day early in my quit, I was sitting in the sauna after my workout and a guy comes in and packs a lip of Cope snuff, the same shit I used to use, and offered one to me. I told him I quit dipping, and he pulled up a picture on his phone of him with cancer on his lip that was taken out a month ago. He showed me where the 100 stitches were. He had gone back to dipping 10 days later. The dude's been dipping for 30+ years, and now he has to shave the inside of his lip because when the surgeon reconstructed his lip, he grafted in a piece of skin that grows hair. He congratulated me on my quit. Before I quit dipping, I was one of those guys who would pick up a can of dip at the gas station when stressful stuff was going on in my life, and hide it around my house. And life kept getting more and more stressful, and I found more and more reasons to buy one. You and I are addicts. That means we understand one another. You are nothing but a sneaky ass deceptive nicotine addict man. Hide the can, find the can, sneak sneak sneak. You are not unique or special. The difference between you and I is that I am armed with the knowledge about how to quit dipping, and you are still in the grips of your addiction. You are in the right place, and this is the time that you will succeed. This is not a habit; it is an addiction. Chewing your nails is a habit. The words we use to describe our addiction reflect where our heads are at. You are a nicotine addict, addicted to a substance that causes cancer. Your addict mind tells you that you love dip. It will tell you all kinds of lies to keep getting a fix. You don't love dip. We each have to go through that rewiring of the brain to quit dipping. Your brain is not trustworthy yet, so you've made an excellent decision finding a place where those with experience can help you figure it out. Ask yourself if you've got what it takes to quit dipping. Too many guys are rolling through here and apparently not getting the message that nicotine will own your ass and has no problem with killing you. To find a method of quit that works then toss it away and go back is an unforgivable act. We want you to succeed, do you want to? The first couple days are rough, but it does get better. Perhaps the tourists who get a taste of freedom and then go back to slavery were here for the wrong reasons. Get selfish and quit for yourself. You need to quit for you, not for anyone else. I started out being quit to help things with my wife, but then I asked myself… if something happened to my wife, what then? I am quit for me and stay quit for me, and my quit brothers are the same way.
  5. The question is, how are you going to handle it when you really quit dipping? Are you going to finally realize that previous stoppages you went through don't mean a damn thing, nothing! First and foremost before you quit dipping… before you post to the quit scroll... before any attempt at brotherhood or integrity, you have to reach down and find your nuts. Make yourself the promise that you have quit chewing tobacco, for good. When you have quit dipping, you will despise this addiction with every fiber in your body. You have to learn to hate it man. You have to despise this addiction more than anything you've ever had the displeasure of experiencing. Get mean with it. If you've ever made it more than a day with your previous stoppages, you know that it sucks. Grab your balls, man up and fight like your life depends on it for the next 72 hours or so because it does! Do not allow this shit to control you anymore, no more disgusting shit smelling breath, brown stains around your lips or spit bottles that look like liquid shit sitting around. Get yourself some fake if you have to, sugar free candy, seeds, gum whatever it takes to keep the dip out of your lip. Stay close to the site and read. 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 people that have already quit dipping, Quitters. 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.

  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. 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.

  7. 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. 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....

If you think you are not ready to quit, what are you waiting for?
  8. Welcome to the Quitting Dip. We've all been through the chewing tobacco withdrawal symptoms and can say with absolute certainty that those negative side effects of quitting dip will pass soon. When your brain gets used to operating without nicotine, the clarity will feel amazing, and sleeping and shitting will return to you once again. I'm sitting here and don't have one inkling of a wish to ever return to using that ground up poison and will continue to come here and post my promise to these powerful allies that I will continue to preserve my freedom from nicotine until the day I take my last breath. You'll find that the money you save and decreased risk of cancer will be ancillary benefits that barely even register in the grand scheme of quitting dipping. They just don't matter that much compared to the real prize - freedom from your addiction. I know that dip has been really fucking expensive, but that never really mattered to us, did it? We always found some other area of our life to short, in order to get that can every day, no matter what. And cancer warnings were always printed on the can. Hasn’t ever stopped one of us. Maybe you actually think that cancer is your motivation now. Or money. Okay. Whatever gets you started on the path, great. But success only comes to those of us who appreciate what quitting means for our lives. It changed everything for me. Life can be a bitch, especially if you are looking for excuses to feel like shit, and feel like you're missing out on stuff... because life is so easy for everyone else, because they aren't dealing with special problems like you. You’re not special. Nicotine didn't help deal with life. Nicotine took away the withdrawal from itself that sets your mind ablaze and causes panic. It wasn't magical, it was chemical. Fuck that shit.
  9. When I put my name on the scroll for the first time I was all in for quitting dip. I just didn't know it for a few days. Once I found my resolve I, I knew I had quit dipping. 29 years of being a sneaky ass addict was enough for me and I had arrived at my last option cause all the other ways to quit dipping failed me, by allowing me to keep putting the drug in my body. I don't know if its possible to express the concept of "Quit" to a person but here goes. This is my life. I've got people in my life that care about me and I care about my own health now. I'm not gonna let nicotine take that away. I have posted my promise every single fucking day since day 1. Why? Cause the fact that I quit dipping matters to me and it takes nothing to make that promise, except integrity. It was a big deal for me because this concept of quitting dip based on accountability pulled my head out of my ass. I made it 3 days, then 3 months, a year, two. I'm not gonna fuck with it. If it was all just as simple as not putting the stuff in our faces anymore we wouldn't need to be here. Quit isn't just quit. Its an attitude and resolve that orbits our integrity. Without those two things how can a person expect to succeed after all the past failure? 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.
  10. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. I stumbled across this site while looking for different resources to help with quitting dip, and am sure happy that I did. I had been dipping for around twelve years, and finally decided that it is time to quit. I have made other attempts in the past, but hadn’t taken them as seriously. The formula is simple; we post a promise not to use nicotine every day, and then we follow through. There are no good reasons for you to go back to putting that shit in your lip. If you have a job or activity where lots of dudes are dipping, I would recommend the fake dip. I was around that shit every day. Fake really helps. It will scratch the oral itch, and also take care of the boredom aspect. All that leaves is the withdrawal. Sorry, no fix for that except a ball sack. There is about 5 days of withdrawal. Take it one day at a time and you'll be out of the woods before you know it. If you have the testicular fortitude to power through, you'll be on the way to freedom. There are also lots of ways to lessen the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Throw up an intro post, and ask for help. Better yet, put “Day 1” on the Plebe Scroll, and enjoy the rest of your life. If you're having a day where you're obsessing about wanting a dip, you need to remember why we put our name on the scroll every day. It's a promise not to use, so there is no option to have that dip. Why obsess over something you can't have? Banish the thought, it's useless. As you do this longer, you will transition from really needing that scroll post to keep from using to where you just use it as a reminder of where you have been and why you care. But for now just keep one foot in front of the other. The withdrawal stage is the toughest, but also the shortest. To quit dipping you need to commit. Even if you don't feel quit, talk the talk. It's both incredibly easy and incredibly powerful. Once you stop talking like a passive observer/victim/pussy, you'll stop feeling like one. Talk about how bad ass it is that you have quit. How awesome it feels to go cold turkey on one of the most addictive substances on the planet. How great it is you're not going to get cancer and miss your kid's high school games. Here's the other thing... until you start acting like you actually want to be here instead of someone who is just trying it out, you're really not worth spending a lot of time on. Transient stoppages are a total waste of our time. We can't get you to give a fuck... that's internal. If you don't give a fuck, get the fuck out of here, we don't care if you don't.
  11. All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. Before I committed to quitting dip, I wasn't planning on really participating on this forum. I just was trying to read the boards so I could figure out what the fuck is wrong with my brain. I was just tired. Tired of making every excuse in the book. Tired of being drunk and walking to a 7-11 just to find they don't have my brand. Has an uber driver ever told you that YOU are the loser? Cause mine did after the third 7-11 we had checked cause Copenhagen mint was hard to find. Like that Uber driver has their shit together....I think not. One star you fucking hypocrite. Anyway I digress. What I'm really trying to get at is I'm here to quit dipping and to quit dipping forever. An hour per dip was par for me, which means, I dipped nearly every minute of the day sans eating, sleeping, and showering. Before I quit chewing tobacco I was “lucky” enough to be able to dip at work, cause I mainly worked from home. I go into an office for like 4 hours a day. Taking a break half way for a 20 min dip and also needing one to take dump. As soon as I got in my car to go home until bed, constantly. If you're wondering how to stay single, that's your answer. Once you quit dipping, each day free from that fucking poison is better than the previous. Triggers come early in a quit, but each time you internally say "fuck you" you're winning, The premise here is simple, but genius at the same time. Wake up, piss, post your promise not to use. Make it 24 hours, keep that cat shit out of your lip, repeat. Anyone with a set of marbles can make it 24 hours. Soon days start stacking into months, months into years ... you'll be quit. Just own your shit. By that I mean embrace what this site has to offer, and be a man of integrity and honor your word ... follow through. You're surrounded here by addicts to nicotine, and we've all got stories just like you. One major difference right now is that across the board, all of us despise that fucking plant ... what it does to your health, your wallet, your connections with family and friends.

  12. The members here quit dipping through the same process, using the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of QuittingDip.com I was walking with my wife through the Target parking lot the other day while we were buying shit for the house, and I got pretty pissed stepping over a dip pouch someone tossed on the ground. Spontaneously, I told my wife how thankful I was to be going on four years since I quit dipping and not going on four additional years of lying and giving in to the addiction at every opportunity. This isn’t something we talk about often, or ever really, as it had been a sore spot in the past. “It” being my lying and “ninja dipping” for years. I also discussed feeling embarrassed for needing to get reminders to post scroll twice this year. I think me admitting that to her made her “get it” even more. That I care about quitting dip because it affects my real life. How no matter the excuse for posting late, that excuse would not have kept me from ensuring I had enough cans for the day. It’s the nature of nicotine addiction. There was no “forgetting” to dip because of my responsibilities. There was no popping in the first dip of the day at 1:00 PM because of aberrations in my daily routine. If I was traveling somewhere where it was difficult to buy dip (like a cruise), I would have researched a contingency plan to ensure there was a way to use and avoid any gaps in addiction-feeding. Would I go through the same lengths to ensure I post my daily promise while camping in a rural area? Yes. Yes, I would and I will. I am not going to allow myself to excuse or rationalize behavior that demeans and shits on Quit. Do you think you would have ever experienced complacency in your addiction? It’s pretty simple here ... Get on the scroll today to say that you have quit dipping. That's the first step… post your promise at the beginning of your day, keep shit out of your lip. Repeat. If you have any integrity, you’ll honor that promise. Soon you’ll be quit, permanently. You gotta own it this time. ZERO tolerance for all things nicotine here ... Addicts can’t have one. One is too many. Quit dipping like you mean it. I would suggest you read as much as you can on the site. Come here with questions, to rant, share, support and be supported. Discovering that you are addicted, and have to quit dipping, is actually one of the hardest parts. It's time to Quit Dipping. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know that.

  13. This method of quitting dip, cold turkey -balls on the table, is the only approach you need to quit dipping, and ultimately the only one that works. None of us are special here. We all signed up looking for a solution to nicotine addiction, and we all found it. Couple things, stop "hoping" that this place can help you kick it, and get on board. There is no hope about it. You can do it if you follow a simple program. Put your name on the Plebe Quit Scroll, and say “Day 1”. That is a promise not to use today. Keep your word. Come back tomorrow. For the space in between, read the site, talk to some bros, answer some questions, get some advice, eat some seeds, go for a jog, and get some sleep. Don't be a victim. All of the discomfort you feel while in nicotine withdrawal is your brain screaming for a substance that you are addicted to. Isn't that a scary thought? The minute you take out your last dip, you're on the way to getting the poison to be out of your system and you feeling more normal. What I mean by don't be a victim- don't just wallow in the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, feeling sorry for yourself… instead, kick ass. Go lift some weights. Tell someone here they are a fucking cocksucker. Start with the first guy to respond to your intro. Run around the block. Do some jumping jacks. DRINK WATER! Drink water until your teeth are floating. The more water you drink, the faster this poison gets flushed out of your system. The more you sweat, the more water you will crave. This fucking poison has been doing havoc on your body over the course of your addiction. Now's the time to free yourself, but not without putting in some work! As you begin to put some days between you and nicotine, start to re-wire your thinking towards tobacco. Once the initial rush of stopping starts to wear off, you don't want to start romancing tobacco. Think of it for what is really is.... a plant that' was stealing your money, health, and the time that you could be spending with loved ones, and finally- stealing the time you have remaining on this earth. It's not your buddy and it's never made a damn thing better or easier.
  14. “Quit” is an attitude change that won't take long to manifest itself - after you quit dipping and prove to yourself that you’ve got the balls to make it through the discomfort of some withdrawals without running back to the “one pinch at a time” cancer addiction. This is the time and the place that you will succeed and quit dipping. We support you but we cant do it for you. I never intend to go through what you are going through again and I won't. You won't have to either. Man I'm going through some shit at work so... Going through a divorce so... Going through a custody battle because I want to move so... Finally get to move and I'm going through the stress of buying and selling a house so... So fuck nicotine! And fuck anyone who thinks that their life circumstances are an excuse for dip or any other addiction. Handle your shit and stop being a pussy. Life happens and it ain't so bad (even the low points) when you're not busy feeling sorry for yourself and blaming everyone and everything else for your problems. 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.

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.
