  1. You need to talk like a quitter to quit dipping. Words are powerful. Never allow weak shit to come out of your mouth, or in any post you put up on this site. Even if you might not believe you are as quit as fuck, start talking like it, because then you are.. Chewing tobacco is not a "crutch"". Chew will not make you feel better when you are angry. Dip wasn't doing anything for you during the times you were using it, except alleviating withdrawal from nicotine... using dip caused endorphins to be released, because dip controlled your brain chemistry, and therefore owned your ass. After quitting
  2. My addiction story is not unique. I was ninja dipper. I dipped pretty much anytime I was alone - driving, hunting, fishing, working, etc. 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
  3. “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 cust
  4. 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
  5. The point of this blog is to find the individual that has been mired in the quagmire of nicotine addiction, and doesn't think there is a way out. There is no real urgency to quit dipping.... except for the fact that every rational part of your brain has been screaming to quit. And the addiction keeps winning. We all know that "just one more" plug of chewing tobacco is not going to give you cancer.... finishing that can you bought in the morning is not going to make a difference... except that we all know that eventually tobacco use causes cancer. You conveniently don't think about it ofte
  6. We are here to help you quit dipping and nothing less. This is not your standard half assed group of people that briefly stop chewing tobacco, but then start bailing out at day 10 because they are cured, or decide that they really wanted to dip the whole time, rather than 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 dip will make other people
  7. Welcome...... But that welcome comes with a condition - When you’re ready to quit dipping, post your day 1 on the Plebe scroll… dump your can… go to the fridge and dump the remainder of your roll… go out to your garage/car/desk at work and dump your emergency cans.....get rid of it all. Because when you post your day 1, there is no going back, and if you follow the advice here, you won’t want to dip anymore. Hell, you don’t WANT to dip anymore already, or you wouldn’t be here. You think you can’t live without dip, but we’re all here to tell you that not only is quitting dip possible, qui
  8. 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, bu
  9. 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 stumbled upon this place called Quitting Dip and found that making a promise 1st thing every day -a promise that I wasn't going to dip-... was, and still 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
  10. I have lived the majority of my personal life with the motto- “Fuck It”. I have given up on too many diets, exercise programs, organizational goals, etc. in my life to count because I have always ended up saying "fuck it" and giving up. When I decided to quit dipping, I was finally fed up with the ever-present sack of shit weighing down my life- my nicotine addiction. I found Quitting Dip and posted scroll the next morning. I had no expectations at that point, and if I am honest with myself, I assumed that the "fuck it" would win over eventually. But the next morning, I woke up and posted a

  12. 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,
  13. 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 it's possible to express the concept of “quit” to another 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? Because it matters to me and it takes nothing to make that promise
  14. 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 yo
  15. Not sure if this term is still around, but I can remember back in the day, lots of young chicks that smoked always talking about having “nic fits”, and needing to smoke even though it was a bad time for it, and they didn’t want to. They were having nicotine withdrawal, but it was treated totally casually. Like, “yes, I’m in withdrawal from a drug, and I am irritable, bitchy, feeling miserable, and dying for a smoke, and oh yeah, I’m 16”. I remember thinking they were crazy, meanwhile I was having a dip. You can see problems in other people, but ignore the fact that you have the same problem.
