The withdrawal symptoms of quitting dip really hit me hard for a few days.
I had trouble sleeping. And by "trouble" I mean I had insomnia, and cold sweats if I managed to drift off for a little while.
I had headaches, and was "foggy" as fuck.
I don't recall being super irritable. Just count to 10 before you respond to anyone that is being a fucking idiot.
But without a doubt, my biggest problem was the oral fixation. I fought this with a constant hard candy in my mouth. I used Sees candies butterscotch suckers. Some dudes liked red hots, or atomic fire balls, and I think that would have made more sense, but whatever. Just get something in your mouth. You don't need to deal with oral withdrawal along with the chemical withdrawal. I really recommend fake dip to quit dipping. I'll get to that later.
I think my worst day was day 4 or 5, I can't even remember anymore. Because like pain, you don't really remember this shit vividly. It's just something you go through, and then it's over. You don't sit around with traumatic memories. You're not being raped by withdrawal. It's a dull discomfort. And then it's gone. There is some time distortion, and it seems like every minute of withdrawal is an hour. That's why it's important to try to stay busy.
Work out. It burns time, and that nervous energy you can"t get rid of during withdrawal when you're quitting dipping. It makes you thirsty. The more water you drink, the faster this poison get's flushed out of your body.
What happened around day 4 or 5 that made it not only the worst, but also the last bad days? I was obsessing about dip. I was fantasizing about having one. I wasn't quit yet. Then, a switch flipped. My attitude unfucked. Fuck you dip! Burning rage at the addiction. Also, I was probably just about done with the actual physical symptoms, so since I survived pushing through, every day got easier. Much easier. And I discovered fake chew. I mean, in previous attempts to quit dipping I had used Jakes, or Back off, or whatever. But that was my whole strategy at that point. Like, I'll put this fake shit in, and it will completely replace my addiction. Totally retarded. It doesn't do shit, and we all know it.
BUT.... In combination with the method here... which is 100% effective if you have testicles, and pretty effective if you are a lady apparently... fake is awesome.
