  1. I started at a very young age, around 12 or 13. My buddy had gotten his hands on a can of snuff and gave it to me. I remember trying some as I was riding my bike home from his house. It only took a few seconds before I was spitting it out and throwing up. I am not sure why that experience did not save me from ever doing it again. My body was clearly telling me that this stuff was poison and was trying to get rid of it. Over the years I continued to dip, not heavily- but steadily. I was still too young to buy it myself, plus I had to sneak around to use it. As I became more independent after I was able to drive myself around, my usage increased significantly. I had my own space and my own time, and I didn’t have to sneak into the cedar trees anymore. When I turned 18 is when my casual use turned into a full blown addiction, because I was able to buy it myself. I remember thinking that I was so cool when I walked in and bought it. After graduation I went to college, and this would seal my fate. I remember in the Ag department the janitor lined the bottom of all the trash cans with newspaper. As we entered class we would grab the trash can and put it in the middle of the desk and everyone within range used it as a spitter during class. This was the point in my life when dipping seemed to become a part of me. I was no longer aware of my use, it was second nature, and it was a part of my consciousness. I eventually graduated, got married and took my first real job. I was mildly aware of being embarrassed by dipping snuff in the office. I remember at least hiding my spit cup in my desk. My wife knew about my dipping, and was disgusted by it, but generally left me alone about it as long as she didn’t see it. Then came the first kid and I tried to quit dipping at my wife’s request. I had stopped using, but it was constantly on my mind. I had no plan. One night, I went to a friend’s house who was still dipping, and BAM! the next thing you know I’m right back where I was. And it happened exactly like you are thinking... I told myself I could have just one, and after that I told myself that I could buy a can and just use it occasionally... and then you look up and it’s a can a day. I was hiding it from my wife and when she found out I thought it was over. My wife took the kid and moved out, for a week or two It was touch and go but we reconciled, and it was business as usual she took an “out of sight out of mind” approach. I looked up one day and on my desk was pictures of my kids, my 40th birthday party invite, and not only one but several spit cups on my desk. I looked back at my life and told myself, this was it, I’m done letting this control me. I was about a week in and realized I needed someone to talk to who knew what I was going through. I looked online for Help and found this website QD. I had a few growing pains at first, but after several arguments, conversations and course corrections I learned the pathway….. Accountability + Brotherhood = QUIT This website taught me a lot about quitting dip. Through this process I learned what I didn’t know the first time I had taken a break. You cannot buy into the lies about nicotine and dipping, and by that I mean you cannot let your mind tell you that nicotine is anything other than poison. You have to rewire your brain into thinking about nicotine in a negative way, and not romanticize your years of usage. If you’re so happy with your addiction, why are you reading this? I also learned that when making your promise here, you are held accountable. There is no option of using once you have posted your number that day, and that is freeing. As I sit back and reflect on quitting dipping, I feel accomplished. I can’t believe how blind I was about my addiction and how stupid and naïve I was. Today I no longer think of dipping and find dip and people who use it repulsive. I am glad to be free from the oppressive control of nicotine, and that I have a community of like minded individuals who have my back because they have been there too. I look at quitting dipping as a stepping stone to a life of freedom and am committed to sharing my knowledge with new quitters as they embark on the same journey.

  2. Back when I was a slave to the can, I wouldn’t leave the house without that weed, planning trips, outings, shopping at the grocery store.....all centered around whether or not I had to go out of the way, across town to the one convenience store that i knew had the freshest cans. So much wasted time and energy. Back when I was a slave to the can, there were times I’d have to dig between the couch cushions, under the car seats & there were times I actually had to borrow money out of my kids piggy bank to buy more dip. 20+ years of dipping at increasing prices. So much wasted cash. Back when I was a slave to the can, every tooth ache, canker sore & sore throat was terrifying. Was it Cancer? Did my bad decisions finally catch up? I’d stop for a few days until things cleared up, then the master would demand more time & money from me..... Then I woke the fuck up. I didn’t want to live scared of self imposed cancer. I wanted to QUIT dipping forever, not just stop. I wanted to QUIT. I found QuittingDip.com and realized I had been going about quitting tobacco all wrong. Cold Turkey is the only way that works with brotherhood and accountability. My quit number is a badge of honor to me. Posting my promise not to use nicotine every morning is a privilege. Having these brothers and sisters supporting me is a privilege. You can quit your addiction to nicotine and tobacco forever. Join, log in & post your promise today. And tomorrow. And forever. Leave being a slave in the past. Give that poisonous weed the finger & see how much better life is when you’re free. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip. If you are looking for a support group, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT DIPPING COLD TURKEY. You might think that there are lots of ways to quit dipping, but there's not. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts at quitting dipping. You can't quit dipping 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. Why do you want to extend the length of time that you experience the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping anyway? Get it over with. Rip the band aid off. Put that shit in the rear view mirror. When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit dipping, but terrified of actually 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 dipping cold turkey is to join this site, and start posting.

  3. The simple part is you either want to quit, or you don't. If you want to quit dipping, stop obsessing about having a dip. Get angry that you are so fucking weak you can't go 3 or 4 hours without "craving" so bad that you “have to dip”. You're in withdrawal. It's poison. And in your current state of mind, it owns you. Stop being a passive victim. Quit Dipping. Put your name on the scroll. "Craving" is in quotes above because cravings are things pregnant chicks get when they are day dreaming about ice cream. What you're having is not a craving, it's your brain screaming for the plant you have addicted it to. And "have to dip" is in quotes because no one has to have a dip. It is not fatal to quit dipping, it is fatal to not quit. You might nearly waver early on, and consider taking the road to failure. But almost caving isn't actually caving. For now, you have to rest everything on your word, the promise you made to not dip today. The reason this website works, the reason you see so many quit numbers in the thousands of days, 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 you can't keep a promise, you're toast. You won’t quit dipping, this will be just another stoppage. 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 quit dipping. Here? We'll piss on your grave if you chose nicotine over freedom. You're too stupid for our help. Once we bought into the quitting dip support group here, everything changed. We became part of a community of badass former slaves. 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. In a few days, your body/mind might be sensing that you have found a method of quitting dipping that will actually work. I freaked out a bit when I realized that, just a week in or so. You have found it. “It”, being Quit. Did you flush that excuse book yet? You don't need it anymore. A few weeks in I was happy as hell to have quit dipping, and never wanted to go through that shit again.

  4. My quit journey is not special. I knew I needed to quit from the day I took my first dip. What I lacked was the desire to quit dipping and the tools to see the process through. What I didn’t realize in my prior stops is that you can't quit dipping by yourself. I found this site and began to read all that I could. I realized that the mindset, the brotherhood, and the no nonsense approach to quitting nicotine offered by this community is exactly what I needed. I joined, quit dipping, and immersed myself in knowledge... reading intro after intro of the successful, reading inspirational Centurion Speeches, and reading the graveyard section containing the failures. Patterns emerged. The formula is simple and clear…brotherhood and accountability = quit. Take the time to form relationships on this site. It easy to find quitters with similar interests, jobs and stories. It is easy to identify the ones who give a shit…just look at your own intro. Support new guys, especially when you are newish yourself, since you will have a fresh perspective on the nicotine withdrawal and mental hurdles which need to be broken down. From those who don't know any better, I see the argument that dip and nicotine help with stress (I made this argument as well). Nope, dip is the stress…the worry of having a can, a spitter, the spills, the mouth pain, the dentist, the higher insurance, the spitting on the ground, the shame, the disgusted looks, the stains…cancer. For me, it took 10 days to clear physical withdrawals of dipping and begin to feel the benefits. That's apparently longer than most. During this time, I read, read and read some more. Don’t do it alone, it doesn’t work. And don’t be afraid to post. Take all you can from the site, and give back. Nicotine is a selfish addiction. It takes money from your pocket, time from your family and years off your life. I made the choice to start and to continue to use nicotine. I made the choice to quit. I am no longer selfish. I am Quit.

The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip. 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?

  6. Are you one of them sneaky ass ninja dippers... or the guy that had the big ole chaw in, spitting between sentences? Both kinds of guys have quit dipping with our support on this site, so either way, you found the right place... and you found this place for a reason. Read the intros here. You are not unique or special - we’re all different people, but we were all enslaved, just like you. We all worried about how hard the withdrawal would be, and it was for a few days, but we did it. The feeling of “Quit” and self respect are gained by posting your promise daily and pulling your head out of your ass. Addiction is about finding excuses to keep doing something you know you shouldn’t be doing, and there are a ton of excuses when you've buried yourself in nicotine for as long as you have. Reach down into your back pocket and pull out that old worn excuse book. Toss that fucker in the toilet and flush. Also toss out that tin you were going to keep as a trophy to prove you were strong. Right now, you're not, but you will be. Also find those old cans in the couch, behind the toilet, or under the car seat. Toss those fuckers out too. Successful methods for quitting chewing tobacco are virtually non-existent. Fortunately you found us, and we have a quit method that works. Post your promise to quit dipping today and prove to yourself, and us, that you are committed to being Quit. Follow our advice for beating the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping, and do it again tomorrow. It’s that easy. 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 dip cold turkey, with the help of other people. That's 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 all know it hasn’t worked. Otherwise, you would be quit, like the other members. 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 start a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, participate in some anonymous discussions, follow the advice of the members, and abide by 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.
  7. 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.

  8. If you are looking for a support group to help quit dipping, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and going 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. 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.

  9. If you are looking for a support group to help quit dipping, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and going cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. 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. 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”.

If you are looking for a support group to help quit dipping, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and going cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. 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. 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.
  11. If you have yet to quit dipping you might be thinking, “I just need to make it through this work week, and I’ll quit chew on the weekend”. But inevitably, this weekend, you'll be thinking that quitting dip away from work will ruin your weekend. “Who wants to deal with withdrawal symptoms while I’m off?” There is always an excuse to keep using, and they’re all stupid. “I have a stressful family thing next week, gotta be chewing then. There’s a golf outing with my boys next month, no reason to quit before then. I’ll quit as soon as I get through this phase where my kids are in diapers.” These are the excuses given by people who are addicted to nicotine, and everyone here knows that because we all used to use them. It was hiding the fact that we were scared to quit, and rationalizing the continued use of a drug that was killing us. Not only are all the excuses dumb, because dip doesn’t help you do anything, it is not a magic potion to allow you to survive stress, it is often a source of stress, and does nothing to help you deal with life. The inevitable withdrawal symptoms from quitting dip will always be the same, regardless of whether it’s that time of the month, bitch. They’re bad for a few days, but not that bad. They are manageable. Unlike what you've convinced yourself, tomorrow is not the best day to start quitting. Today is. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT DIPPING COLD TURKEY. You might think that there are lots of ways to quit dipping, but there's not. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts at quitting dipping. You can't quit dipping 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. Why do you want to extend the length of time that you experience the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping anyway? Get it over with. Rip the band aid off. Put that shit in the rear view mirror. When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit dipping, but terrified of actually 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 dipping 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. Just throw up a post somewhere, someone is going to see it, and help you learn how to quit dipping. You can also post below with questions or comments before you sign up. 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. We want to give you help to quit dipping, but you have to help yourself first.
