  1. This forum is fairly simple. Commit yourself to quit dipping. Post your daily scroll promise not to use nicotine, and honor it. The folks here have all quit dipping already, and they can provide encouragement and accountability. Take advantage of the resources here. Close the door on ever dipping again and step out into the light. Feels good out here. I used nicotine as a depression “crutch” for a long long long time. It wasn't a crutch, it was an addiction. I made excuse after excuse to keep feeding my face with that shit for nearly 20 years. Now there are no excuses. Throw away your excuse book, be accountable to quitting dipping, and find your integrity. You can quit dipping and you will if you want it.  THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY. And the only way to quit cold turkey, as far as the membership here is concerned, is to find a bunch of dudes who already quit this shit, and follow their lead. But what do we know... we're all just quit, and you're not. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts to "kick the habit". Here's the key. You can't use nicotine replacement products to quit nicotine. No vaping. No nicotine lozenges. No nicotine gum. Why not? Because you can't quit nicotine by using a different form of nicotine. How easy is it to quit dipping? Quitting dip is a lot easier than you think. If you follow the well worn path by the members here who are quit. Once the withdrawal symptoms of are over, (and yes, they suck but they are manageable), it becomes a mind game, and we know all the ways to win. If you are ready to quit, the best way is to join this site, and start posting. If you think that quitting dip is impossible, then you're in the right place. If you wonder whether you really need to quit chewing, you're not ready. Guests can read some "speeches" of dudes who have been in your shoes. If you're just about ready to pull the trigger but you're scared, stop being a pussy. There is a section in the support center full of posts encouraging guys like you to get in the game. Once you sign up you can start an introduction where you can tell the other members about yourself, or just get right to it and put your screen name and "Day 1" on the "Quit Scroll" with today's date. The bottom line is that if you throw up a post somewhere, guys here will try to help you. But you have to help yourself first.
  2. Welcome to Quitting Dip. 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 ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

  3. One of the biggest reasons we’re still here is that someone, at some point, helped us and taught us how to quit chewing tobacco. We are hoping to help you quit dipping the same way that someone did for us as newbs. The eventual taste of freedom when you quit dipping, and the value of the assist from those who knew how to quit better than us foggy bastards, is pretty much immeasurable. The gratefulness of “being free” leads dudes who have decency to try to pay it forward, and backward. Recovered addicts with self-awareness, and a firm grasp on the struggle to quit dipping ... that's who most of us are. You'll find that the experiences you thought were unique to you regarding dipping are universal among those of us here. We've all been there. I dipped for 22 years and TRIED to quit dipping by myself more times than I care to admit... before finally breaking free from nicotine. It's simple here: we make a promise 1st thing every morning to ourself and our fellow quitters that we aren't going to dip that day. Sack up - as you know from prior "stoppages" the first few days are tough. They’re actually unbearable if you don’t understand how quitting dipping should be done. Get on here and read as much as you can, and drink lots of water and try to exercise. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

  4. The good news is if you dig in and quit dipping here you'll find that you are surrounded by a bunch of like-minded dipshits who tried to quit on their own ... and failed. Only with the support of a bunch of common-users did we all pull our heads out of our asses, and our fingers out of a tin. Life is fucking great after you quit chewing tobacco. I'm no longer a slave to same damn weed. Women dig me more, bucks smell less of me, ducks seem to light in the decoys that much more readily now. Well, 2 outta 3 ain't bad. Where was I? Oh yeah. We post a daily promise here, and we quit dipping to START our day. It's funny how promising to a bunch of strangers that you won't use nicotine for the day works. After a while, we're definitely not strangers. We're on your side, fighting the same battle. You CAN do this ... just search for the testicular fortitude it takes to be consistent, and get on scroll to start your day each and every day. Quit Dipping 1st, everything else falls into place.

  5. Post your promise to quit dipping today and prove to yourself, and us, that you are committed to being Quit. You found this place for a reason. Methods for quitting chewing tobacco that work are virtually non existent. Fortunately you found a quit method that works. Addiction is about excuses and nothing else when you've buried yourself in it as long as you have. Reach into your back pocket or behind the toilet or under the car seat and pull out that old worn excuse book. Toss that fucker in the toilet and flush. Even that can you were going to keep as a trophy to prove you were strong. Are you one of them sneaky ass ninja dippers... or the guy that had the big ole chaw in spitting between sentences? Either way, you found the right place. Read the intros here. You are not unique or special here - quit and respect are gained by posting your promise daily and pulling your head out. Welcome.

  6. Each and every member of this community quit nicotine through the same process... quitting chewing tobacco via a support system and the accountability offered by this dip quitting forum. The foundation of t he method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. Okay... remember when we were new to quitting dip? Remember when we didn't think it would be possible to quit dipping? Like "how could posting a number on a website actually work where everything other known method of quitting chewing tobacco has failed me for years or decades?". The method we preach here seems like an illusion, a con. There's no way it could work. Then IT FUCKING WORKS, and quitting seems so easy. And then all of a sudden, as the quitting dip timeline moves forward, some dudes think maybe they don't need the thing that got them quit, because quitting dip is soooo easy, right? Like, you would have gotten quit on your own, this website is just like a little shortcut, and quitting was inevitable... How can anyone be this stupid? Seriously, how fucking stupid is this? Whatever. I'll be here. New guys reading this and wondering whether this is real, this really works. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

The foundation of t he method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. 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. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

The foundation of the method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit 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. Slowly killing you, all the while you get to pay for it. Heaven is the freedom you can expect when quit dipping. You have no idea .. but you will. Flip that switch. Fuck nicotine.

The foundation of the method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip We all were totally irrational about 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. 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 works though 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 without dip. 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 ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

The foundation of the method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. I thought about quitting dip a lot before I actually quit dipping. I had grown tired of the raw lips, the car that smelled like dip spit, the spitting in trash cans and the most embarrassing to me was having to reprint papers at work because I had put the "dip smudge" on them. I don't have to tell you about all of those feelings... you've felt them or you wouldn't be here searching, the same way I was searching for the magic solution to quit dipping. I would get on the internet every night and search out "ways to quit dipping" or "easy steps to quitting nicotine" or "how to quit chewing tobacco" thinking that somewhere in some dark corner of the internet, someone held a true secret that would give me the ability to finally quit. I stumbled upon a website, full of folks who had walked the path I was exploring and they promised that they had the answer. I was so consumed with getting their answer that I didn't really know what I was signing up for. I was told that this group of folks start their day by making a promise to themselves and the group that they would not dip that day. After all, its only a day and when broken down into pieces, you just have to make it a couple of hours at the time. You can do anything for a couple of hours. When I finally did pull the trigger to quit dipping I suddenly had a group of folks interacting with me, encouraging me, telling me what to expect and how to best cope with the withdrawal symptoms that I had feared for so long. The first few days are rough...but not the whole day. Only a few minutes at the time. Long enough for your body to say it wants dip and then your mind to say "not today...I posted scroll". It is hard to put into words the transformation when you take back the freedom you've given over to a tin can full of shit for so long. But that freedom is worth every bit of discomfort from those first few days. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

  11. Each and every member of this community quit nicotine through the same process... quitting chewing tobacco via a support system and the accountability offered by this dip quitting forum. The foundation of the method here is accountability, and the only way to quit nicotine is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. When you actually quit dipping, do you think you are going to "miss" it? 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 have this browser open on my computer all day, 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. The misery, the shame, the fear, the anxiety, the desperation, the guilt, and the hatred.

The foundation of t he method here is accountability, and the only way to quit chewing tobacco is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip . Welcome to Quitting Dip. It's pretty simple, we quit dipping one day at a time, we make that promise to quit chewing tobacco to ourselves and our fellow addicts first thing each day, and we keep our word. Things are going to suck for a while, but you don't need to worry about that. You need to worry about today. 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. You probably really need to consider telling the wife, because you are probably going to demonstrate some signs of nicotine withdrawal and she needs to know why. 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). Not a big fan of that myself but it is a personal decision. We are 100% nicotine free and don't practice replacement therapy. 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 ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

The foundation of the method here is accountability, and the only way to quit chewing tobacco is to quit cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. 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 me lying and “ninja dipping” for years. Was also discussing feeling embarrassed needing to get reminders to post scroll twice in 2019 (thanks Owl and 8meds). 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. Want to guess where I was when my wife went into the final stages of labor with our first son? If you guessed secretly dipping in a quiet part of the hospital, you’d be correct. 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. Think you would have ever experienced complacency in your addiction?

Wake, piss, post to scroll to show that you have quit dipping. Once that promise is made, there is no option to use any form of nicotine ... period. Do it early every damn day without fail. Will power is POWER. Bowing to your "nicotine cravings" is weakness. Choose power over weakness. Embrace the fact you have quit chewing tobacco.. Use your scroll post as daily affirmation that you ARE quit. It's an old saying, "The road to quit is littered with the bodies of the weak". Take charge, quit chewing tobacco, and burn the boats… and your legacy won't be one of a failure, a body strewn along the road to quit. Alternatively, you'll take your ball and leave; making excuses about work, family, stress, or any other useless reason that people use to justify failure ...just like other weak bodies before you.

Before I quit chewing tobacco, I dipped for 22 years and by the end was completely controlled by nicotine, desperately looking for a way to quit dipping.

Can't tell y’all how pissed I am that I allowed nicotine to control my life for so long before I quit dipping. My mental and athletic performance suffered, my job performance suffered. Everything suffered, it was a mess. When I had my first child, before I quit chewing tobacco, the addiction detracted from my time with her. Instead of enjoying the moment, I'd look forward to her nap so that I could pop a dip in. Quitting dipping has made me a stronger, smarter, more resilient person. Now that I have proven to myself that I can quit dipping, I can confidently act to improve other areas of my life. I want to make better choices in everything I do moving forward. If it's not helping me with my goals, I shouldn't be doing it. If its a negative person or behavior, I shouldn't be associating with it. Quitting chewing tobacco would not be possible without support and brotherhood. Posting scroll was the cornerstone of my cold turkey nicotine quit, but the interaction with positive, like minded people is what keeps me coming back. Wake up, piss, post scroll, and interact.

There are two parts to this website. First is the serious, no nonsense portion - your pledge to quit chewing tobacco. This part of Quitting Dip is relentless, intense, and often unforgiving… but a daily promise is a method proven to work effectively to quit dipping. The second part of this site is a juvenile frat house to which you become entitled to participate as a member of the community should you so choose. Quitting chewing tobacco is the only portion that is necessary - you MUST log in everyday and make your promise to the rest of us that you will quit dipping that day. Break that promise, or refuse to be held accountable, and you won't be here long. The second part is gratuitous; feel free to ignore it.

Brotherhood and accountability has freed me from nearly a quarter century of slavery to nicotine before I quit chewing. Time slipped by me like a fart in the wind. I pissed away my prime years so I could sneak away to shovel dog crap into my mouth and my face. I missed out on girls, friends, education, love, careers, travel, and opportunities of a lifetime so that I could sit in my car or on a fucking toilet to needlessly suckle tobacco, before I quit dipping. Lesson learned. No more. I quit chewing thanks to my brothers in quit. I will always be thankful and always respectful of the key things that led me to my quitting dipping. Posting to the scroll, asking for support to help quit dipping, supporting others in their quest to quit chewing tobacco, and forging brotherhood. Thank you my brothers.

Last week I looked out my hotel window and saw a woman standing in the street smoking. Just standing there, one arm folded across her stomach, the other holding her cigarette. So sad. So alone. So trapped. Such a waste. Addiction is not a fucking disease. I know it's a disease in the strictest definition of the word, but it's not like Malaria or MS. You decide to put that shit in your body every time. Calling it a disease lets people off the hook. Addiction is serious, it's crippling, it's lethal, but every hit is a choice. I know how politically incorrect that statement is, but I couldn't BECOME QUIT until you dudes helped me understand that ain't nobody gonna help me but me. Addiction is a crisis of character. It's a vacuum of valor. I still remember when that light bulb went off: just stop being such a goddamn pussy and QUIT, BITCH. QUIT HARD. That mindset has changed me. It's changed me as a man, husband, father, boss, son, brother. I own every minute of every day. I chose to be strong. I chose to be quit - and being quit means so much more than just not using nicotine. But that's my foundation, my rock every morning - wake, piss, post, commence utter domination.

The following was written recently by a member of QuittingDip.com When I put my name on the scroll for the first time I was all in. I just didn't know it for a few days. Once I found my resolve I was all in. 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 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 it matters to me and it takes nothing to make that promise except integrity. It was a big deal for me because this concept of quit 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.

  22. The members here quit nicotine through the same process, quitting chewing tobacco via the accountability offered by this website, and quitting cold turkey. The following was written today by a member of QuittingDip.com One of the biggest reasons my quit came to be was me asking myself the question, “why are you doing this?”. It’s a question I was unable to answer, and at the same time I found it much easier to answer the question “why wouldn’t you do this?”. The reasons for not dipping pile up easily. I’ll start off as a salesman for quitting dip: Do you enjoy not having cancer? Do you like falling asleep easily and waking up rested? Do you like having extra pocket money? Do you like not having to hide spit cans and brown teeth from your loved ones? I could go on, but you get the point. Likely, you’ve reasoned all of these in your mind before. You know that logically you shouldn’t continue this practice, yet, for some reason, you continue. Why? Why keep dipping if you know there is literally no good reason to continue? The answer is simple: you aren’t taking control of the decision. You’ve allowed the reasonable part of you to take a back seat while the dumbass part of you drives the car. It’s time to take back the wheel. One of the most liberating moments I had was the moment when I decided to quit. I took a full can of dip, I dumped it in the toilet, and watched it all go down the drain. I would highly recommend this. You will be surprised at how hard it is to dump that can, but once you do a feeling of power and control will wash over you. After that, take it one day at a time. Don’t think about being quit 4 years from now, think about making it to next week. Once you’re at next week, think about making it to the next month. Before you know it, you won’t even be thinking about dip. Use this website as a tool to aid your quit. Post scroll in the Plebe Quit Scroll every morning. Get involved. Writing posts about how strong your quit is will strengthen your quit and resolve to keep your daily promise. You can do it, you can get rid of the addiction. Dump that can in the toilet, post scroll, and start the next chapter of your clean and free life. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY. You might not be ready to hear that, but you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't already know it. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts to "kick the habit". You can't quit halfway. You also can't use nicotine replacement products. No vaping. No nicotine lozenges. No nicotine gum. Why not? Because you can't quit nicotine by using a different form of nicotine. When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit, but terrified of quitting, everything can seem overwhelming. Quitting dip is a lot easier than you think. It is all a mind game, and we know all the ways to win. If you are ready to quit, the best way to quit cold turkey is to join this site, and start posting. Once you are a member you can start an introduction where you can tell the other members about yourself, or just get right to it and put your screen name and "Day 1" on the "Quit Scroll" with today's date. If you aren't ready for that, or don't know if this will work for you, as a guest you can read some "speeches" of dudes who have been in your shoes. If you just about ready to pull the trigger but you're scared, stop being a pussy. There is a section in the support center full of posts encouraging guys like you to get in the game.

  23. Everything that appears in this daily blog was written by a member of QuittingDip.com, (QD). Every member here has quit nicotine through the same process, quitting chewing tobacco via the accountability offered by this website, and quitting cold turkey. [the following is an excerpt from a "quit speech"] My addition story is not unique. I was ninja dipper. I dipped pretty much anytime I was alone - driving, hunting, fishing, working, ect. I would make excuses to get away from my family so I could dip. I was a dipshit. I never thought I was addicted because I would rationalize that "I don't dip that much" and "I can quit whenever I want" and "most people don't even know that I dip so I am obviously not addicted". Then I tried to quit and couldn't. I struggled for a long time with various stoppages. Then I found the people here and learned how to quit. For me it was never about the physical withdrawals, my battles to quit would be on the mental side. The first months were hell and I will never forget. But, every day further away from day 1 gets better and better. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

  24. Stop thinking about it, and do it. The premise here is simple, post your daily promise to quit dip, and your number of days quit. Make it 24 hours, and do it again. Interact with the folks here … we’re all from different walks of life, yet we’re all the same. Ex-tobacco users. Soon the days will turn into weeks, months. Just remember to start your day with that little quit pill … your daily promise. Before you know it, that dude who used to shove cat-turds in his lower lip is in your rear-view mirror … and getting smaller all the time. Post up a day one, and throw that tin of death in the crapper. Flush it, so it won’t sing that siren-song and suck you back in. You wouldn’t even be reading this if you weren’t thinking of quitting chewing tobacco. Reach down, find your marbles … and get after it. Stop letting some damn plant run your life, while running you into the ground. Dipping your toe in to test the waters isn’t the approach of a committed quitter. Frickin’ cannonball into this quit from chew. YOU CAN DO IT, you just need to take that first step. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY.

  25. QuittingDip Honor Code 1. Post Your Promise to the Quit Scroll Every Morning When you wake up in the morning, post your promise not to use that day. Doing it first thing gets you in the routine of quitting, instead of the routine of craving. We are in different states, different time zones, and different countries, so "morning" where YOU are may be earlier or later than others. Just don't endanger your quit by treating this process casually, and don't disrespect the brotherhood by being late, just be on 'first thing'. 2. Keep Your Promise Throughout the Day We are quit. We make a promise not to use nicotine and we keep it, every day. We all keep that promise, whether on Day 1 or Day 1,000 and beyond. You might have more withdrawal on Day 3 than you do on Day 300, but it's no harder to keep your word. You are not special. Quit or Fuck Off. 3. Repeat Every Day It really is that simple.
