  1. Are you here to find people that will support you during this "attempt”... a group that will pick you back up when you “couldn’t get through the day" without a little dip? Think we’re going to pet your head and tell you everything is going to be okay when you fail? Forget it. We don’t accept failure here, and there are no excuses to use nicotine once you find your nuts. Are we going to support you when you need help to deal with all of the "cravings" that ruined your last “attempt" to quit dipping? Yes. And you can do this. But there is no sugar coating this. The next few days will suck... you will feel light-headed, fuzzy, irritable, and tired. You’ve fucked yourself by using nicotine for years and years, and there is only one way out... Quitting Dipping Cold Turkey. Time will inch by, but it will only last a few days, and you have a lot of reading to do around here, so use that stopped clock well. The first few days are rough... we've all been there and know there's no way through it but straight on, head down, brute force. But you can be smart, make a plan and then execute it. Carve out time to exercise, or at least get fresh air and be active. Drink lots of water- it helps flush out the poison. Sunflower Seeds were fantastic for me. Get some fake dip, like Jerky Chew or Smokey Mountain. Give them a try if for no other reason than to put another weapon in your arsenal. The oral fixation withdrawal is something you don’t need compounding the chemical withdrawal of the first 4-5 days. Remember WHY you are quitting dipping. To never be dependent on this stupid weed again, to not need something to level you out, to never be in nicotine withdrawal again, to be free. Stay busy and you'll suddenly have another day of quitting behind you, a day that you can use that as more proof to yourself that this is not just possible, but something you have actually accomplished. Next day- post your promise that you will stay quit, and do it again. 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 COLD TURKEY. Haven't quit dipping yet? 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. When I was 44 years old with three children I was a total slave to nicotine, with a can a day "habit". I was sitting with my wife in a church at a friend's funeral. She was 40 years old with two kids, and a “light smoker” that just passed away from lung cancer. As I watched her husband and two sons stand in front of everyone and talk… I don't remember what they were talking about… I was a mess in the back of that church thinking about what a spoiled, selfish piece of shit I was for continuing to poison myself. I looked at my wife and said, "I'm done. I am quitting dip." "I can't do that to you and the kids." I bought some fake chew and stopped… for about a week. I even found a quitting dip support group website that talked about "accountability" and "quitting dipping one day at a time". I looked around. Read some stories and thought, "How can a website and people that I don't even know help me quit dipping?" One of the things I’ve learned since then is that you can’t quit dipping for someone else. I used for another year at the same can a day clip. Every time I bought a can, I said, "This is my last can." I felt more shame, anger and fear with every can I purchased. I knew I had to quit dipping, but honestly did not believe I could. I was sure I'd be dead in 10 years if I continued. I took my last dip after dinner one night. I threw away the can and told my wife I was done. She said, "Whatever. Do it if you want." I've told her I quit dipping so many times that there was no way she believed I would actually quit. Days later I was walking around my house completely confused and feeling like shit. I couldn't focus or remember what I went into a room for. I thought I was going crazy. I searched for help online and found a quitting dip support group similar to the one I scoffed at. Not this time. I had nothing to lose so I dove in. Read everything I could, started an intro, and started meeting quitters The support I received and continue to receive was overwhelming and still blows me away. Life is great as a quitter. I don't think about dip very often and never romanticize about it. I have fucked a lot of things up in my life. This will not be one of them. When we post on the scroll, we are giving our word not to use for the rest of the day. Sound a little hokey? Yeah, I didn't get it when I started either. It gives you something more to rely on than just willpower. It lets you share some of my willpower, and every other dude on this site. Because we don't dip anymore, and we don't want to. It is the last thing I want, because it will throw away hundreds of days of victory and freedom, just like if you quit dipping today and then use tomorrow you will throw away one of the three toughest days of the whole fucking process. What makes us different, besides posting every morning, is that we have overcome the mistaken belief that dip was helping you enjoy all those good times you’ve had in your life, or that it was helping you get through some of the ordeals at other times. It wasn’t. Just keep this in your mind, NAFAR (NEVER again for ANY reason). If you are looking for a quit dipping 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 above was written by a member of Quitting Dip. 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.
  3. Before finding Quitting Dip, I was using a substance that was going to be the death of me. Of course, for most of the time that I was dipping, I blocked out that reality. Then I made a decision that has since changed my life. I made the decision to quit dipping. The night I put the can down for good, I searched the internet for “tricks to quit dipping.” The thing I found is that there are no “tricks,” none that actually work. There is only one way to quit dipping, cold turkey. If you’re reading this and are thinking about quitting dipping, the method on this website works. Accountability is the key to breaking that cycle when it feels impossible to quit. Posting a promise to this support group which says, “I have quit dipping” might seem binding. But it’s actually very freeing. It’s like waking up and taking a dump on the very thing that would kill you. It’s empowering. Brotherhood is the thing that will keep you attached to the accountability, so that you never lose sight of what you've accomplished. Engaging in brotherhood is something that lasts. These things mixed together equals QUIT. Since quitting dipping, I can already feel the positive effects. I’m more focused, more well rested, more willing to talk to people to their face, a better man. This website has saved my life and I can’t properly express my gratitude. If you are looking for a quit dipping 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 above was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. 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? Are you scared of the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dip? Have you ever tried to quit before, and failed? How many times? Do you know all the stages of quitting dipping, except the only one that matters, permanence? 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?
  4. If you are looking for a quit dipping 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 following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. I was able to quit dipping because I give these guys my word daily. Somehow the days add up and you become the man you were supposed to be. No one was created to be a slave to a plant. I know now that it was holding me back. Keeping me from enjoying life to the fullest. Making me look small to friends and family. Contributing to stress. Making me a slave. A powerless bitch. Now? I am a fucking bad ass. I quit dipping. I never think about or consider using chewing tobacco anymore. I would have never thought that to be possible but it's true. This is a dip quitting support group with members that are a few weeks, months, or years ahead of where you are today. We all decided that we were going to take control of our lives and quit dipping. We've all been sitting where you are today. If you do the work, our method is 100% guaranteed. We are here to help with quitting dipping.  Think about holding on to a “trophy can” to prove you are strong enough to look at it without using it? Dumb. Think you need to keep a can for “just in case”? There is absolutely no sense in keeping an emergency can around. That's like an alcoholic keeping a sixer in the fridge, just in case. Neither are fully invested in their quits. If you don't fully invest in quitting dip, you fail. There are a bunch of guys in your corner, rooting for you to win. You need to quit dipping, it could save your life. There is nothing that fucking weed ever did for you except get its hooks in you, and make you pay a shit-ton of money for a chance at cancer. Fuck that. You’ve made a great decision, now it's just a matter of sticking to the plan. Fight through the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal minute by minute if you have to. Start by putting your name on the quit scroll, promising not to use. That's a promise you made to yourself, and to all of us. A real man of integrity never goes back on his promises ... his word carries value. Wake up tomorrow, and first fucking thing make that again. Once completed, using is off the table! That's the beauty of our system. Embrace it, freedom is on the other side!! It's gonna suck until it doesn't. We're all here to tell you, from 7 days quit to 2000+ days quit ... the juice is worth the squeeze. 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?

  5. Okay... remember when we were just starting and trying out the methods we use here at Quitting Dip? Remember how desperate you were? How many times you had tried to quit? Back when you didn't really think it would be possible to quit dipping? Back when you thought this method was nonsense? 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. But you'll try anything at this point. Then IT FUCKING WORKS, and after a week or two quitting seems so easy. And then as the quitting dip timeline moves forward, you get a couple months under your belt, and life seems normal, not normal like before when you were a slave and everything revolved around your addiction, whether you knew it or not. Now it's a better normal; you're feeling settled, shit is still happening around you but the path seems smooth. All of a sudden, 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. It is not a burden to be here and be quit every day. The burden is being a slave. The routine here pays back the brotherhood for my quit, and every time a new guy hears the gong go off, you should remember that feeling for yourself. New guys reading this and wondering whether this real works.... this really works. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT COLD TURKEY. Haven't quit dipping yet? 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.

  6. Wake, piss, get on Quitting Dip, post to scroll to show us 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 dipping.. Use your scroll post as daily affirmation that you ARE quit. It's an old saying among quitters, "The road to quit is littered with the bodies of the weak." Take charge, quit chewing tobacco, and burn the boats… make it impossible to go back. Keep your word to quit dipping every day 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. Your choice. Quit dipping. 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.
  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. 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 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.
  8. 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. One of the keys to quitting dipping is the mental shift from missing dip, to being mad at it. Get pissed, brother. That shit never did ANYTHING for you. It never made anything better; it didn't make you cool, or sexy, or smart, or tough...it only made you a pussy. Quitting is WINNING. You are taking back your life, man. I was thinking about quitting dipping while on a long drive I had this morning for a business meeting. That used to be a dip time for me. Today I didn't even think about the fact that I was going to be driving without dip. Didn't miss it. Why? Because I'm quit as fuck, that's why. Actually, I was specifically better off on that drive without dip. All of the time and energy that I would have normally spent thinking about making sure I had a can and a spitter and enough time to sit in the parking lot for a few minutes, I instead spent mentally preparing for my meeting. Since nicotine is a vasoconstrictor (causes your arteries to constrict), that chew I used to have on the way to meetings literally inhibited my ability to think creatively. One piece of advice I can say is to cling to this forum as if your life depends on it. I know my first days in the fog I didn't get shit done at work but I read, read and read some more. You will learn a lot doing this. One of my favorites was centurion speeches. Learn from guys that have had success at quitting dipping and mimic what they do.
  9. 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.
  10. 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. 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. 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. 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.

After you post your day 1 today - hang on until tomorrow morning and then you will post your day 2 .... then you’re on you’re way to being a quitter ... you will come here every morning and post scroll - you do that not out of a requirement for this site, but as a promise to yourself that you will not put that shit in your mouth for that day....fight through that day and repeat the next.... you will continue to do that until you gain the upper hand on your addiction. What we offer here is brotherhood and accountability - if that is what you’re looking for - you have come to the right place.....

  12. 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. 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 DIPPING COLD TURKEY.
