Quit Date

  1. I quit dipping cold turkey. It works. I created an account on this site and posted on the day’s scroll. It worked. It will work. Quitting dipping has changed my life. It has bettered my life immeasurably. I was a different person before QUIT. I had misaligned goals and priorities. I saw the world and myself from a warped and distorted perspective. I was tied up in knots and stuck in the upside down. Nicotine was a mask that I hid behind. It was something I used to hide myself from my insecurities. I am not perfect. That bothered me. I based my self worth on other people’s opinions of me and what I wanted their opinions of me to be. All this added up to weakness, and it started to build on itself. I couldn’t think for myself. I had problems speaking up. I was afraid to make decisions. I was afraid to make mistakes. I was paranoid about everything. Things were getting bad. Was this all because of dip? No. Some of it was just life. Some of it was my own fault. All of it is my responsibility. Dipping made things worse. It made what was already bad worse and created more problems. A fuck ton more problems. It was the driving force behind all problems and became the motherload of problems. Thankfully, I realized that I had to overcome. I would overcome. I would rather suffer the pain of eternal infinite hells without nicotine than a life of fake comfort with it. In reality, QUIT got me out of hell. The temporary pain of nicotine withdrawal was just the process of weakness leaving. Forever. I am QUIT forever. I don’t give a fuck. Now is everything tip top now? No, but it’s a start. It’s the start of my new life built on the foundation of QUIT. How am I going to maintain? Brotherhood. Post my promise. Keep my word. Read. Listen. Interact. Learn. Apply. Evolve. If I can do it anyone can do it. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip.

  2. I started dipping when I was about 16 with my friends after lacrosse practice. It seemed pretty harmless right? All the cool guys did it, I wanted to fit in. From then on it slowly went from once a week... to every day... to becoming a compulsive need. Before you know it you're in college, and you’re dipping all night because you think it helps you study. After that you start dipping in class and swallowing the spit. Straight down your throat. As if you're being fucked in the mouth by a prison cellmate and you decide you might as well just take it all in . Now I know that is an outrageous analogy but it has merits. Consider this: Big tobacco has known for DECADES that their products kill people. They purposely fill them with the nicotine because they know that it will hook unwitting users for life. What an insidious plot. We go through a normal stressful life, and pick up the habit to try to make things easier, not knowing we are being enslaved... Meanwhile the execs over at Big Tobacco are flying in private jets and spending their summers on yachts in the Mediterranean . The money we are spending on the products that are killing us just supports their lifestyle and their stockholders. You may disagree, or think this is an oversimplified explanation , and it probably is. Really, no amount of explaining can express all of the different facets and effects that nicotine and tobacco has on our entire human race, literally. Which brings me here. People are strongest together. Today's technology allows us this community where we can lean on each other for support and to express ideas among our peers. I got fucking fed up with dipping. Tired of hiding. Tired of rotting my teeth. Tired of swallowing poison. Tired of bottles full of filth laying all my house and car. Just sick and tired of being sick and tired. Trying to quit alone and failing. If you can think of it, someone here has lived the shit. We all stick together. We all hold each other accountable. And the ONLY way we believe a person can quit successfully is cold turkey. Even if you are currently using nicotine replacement products and not dipping, you are using nicotine. Are you going to keep using them forever? No? Then eventually you are back to cold turkey, just with wasted months or years of being slave to a patch full of nicotine instead of a can. . So my advice to you is to make up your mind quit, hang out here and lay your WORD down on the line, and quit fucking around; because its literally KILLING you in every way you can possibly imagine.

  3. Before I quit dipping I was sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself. I had just put in my last pinch and didn’t feel like going to the store to buy another can. I had a bag of [chaw brand redacted*] from an attempt to switch it up, but it still wasn’t [dip brand redacted*]. The longest I had gone without dip was in Basic training, and that was merely 4 months. Since then I had eaten a can a day for the subsequent 4 years. I searched “how to quit dip” it took me to reddit.com and had a link to QuittingDip.com. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw dudes that were years into quitting. I just dove in. To be successful at quitting dipping, you have to want to be quit. Nobody can do it for you. Recognize yourself for the addict you are and take control back, from before you were a slave. It is a complete internal battle for the person YOU want to be. Good news for us is QD has this shit mapped out on how to quit dipping forever. Follow the timeline, participate in your quit with the brotherhood and accountability. If you are reading this and on the fence about quitting dipping, chances are you feel worthless like I did at day 0. So, for the first time in your life just fucking commit to something. Post your promise every morning, and deal with the nicotine withdrawal for 3-4 days. The next stage of quitting is the fog, but you won’t be alone. We’ve all done this. At some point you will be writing about how you did it, just like me. Every member here has seen a new quitter like me and you making their first step into a new lifestyle, and they are ready for your excuses and your hesitation. At QD we eat your excuses and shit them back out at you. There is a ton of quit knowledge on this site… dig in it, bury yourself head to toe because it is your armor against your addiction. We will show you the path and can guide you along, but it will be your feet against the ground. Change your fucking life by quitting dip. Quit for yourself. To the new members at QD… stay the course. To the old members thank you for your patience with me. I am honored to be at this stage in my quit. 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.

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.

  4. My back story is very similar to numerous others here, so I don’t feel I need to go over it in detail. The short version is that I made a lot of bad decisions when I was young and chewed snuff for over 30 years, before I found this place and quit dipping. I am not saying any of this was easy because it was not, I have had my ups and my downs just like everyone else. I am very happy and proud of my Quitting Dipping. For me the 2 most important differences between my Permanent Quit and all the previous stoppages are Accountability and recognizing and admitting I have an Addiction to nicotine. Accountability: While friends and family may love and support you, they most likely do not provide the true accountability you will need to Quit dipping and stay Quit. They will support you and be proud of you and that is all very nice, but they will also forgive and accept you if you decide to break your promise to them and start dipping. This is not true accountability; this is not what you need in order to quit dipping. What you need is the type of Accountability that QuttingDip provides, which is unwavering, no excuses, sometimes harsh, but honest Accountability. Addiction: My original plan was to quit chewing snuff but still smoke the occasional cigar. I truly thought this was a reasonable idea because I was addicted to snuff not cigars. I only smoked cigars occasionally and did not really need them all the time so that should be OK right? I have friends that do this, why can’t I? Well, after being here for only a few weeks and reading a lot of posts, researching addiction and doing a fair amount of self-reflection, I came to a different conclusion and belief. I am addicted to nicotine and if I use it in any form I know it will eventually lead me back to using snuff. I can not have just one, it does not work that way for me. I have been down that road before and now I know better. For me it is just that simple and it is the reason why I quit dipping. Thank you to QD and all who have helped me. I am happy to be free and Quit with all of you today. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip.

  5. I didn't write anything for my first 100 days of quitting dip because I felt like I had nothing really to celebrate nor to be proud of. Quitting dip was just something that I believed I had to do, and I did it. The next 100 days threw me for a loop. I battled with a few personal issues. Watched my life fall apart in front of my eyes and kept sitting on the sideline blaming everyone else for my mistakes and issues. But with everything going on I stayed quit. Every problem, obstacle and end of the world issue that came my way which used to “require” a dip, was overcome. The belief that dipping helps with our problems was all bullshit. Posting to the Quitting Dip Scroll, reading all the day's posts and comments and realizing how many of you I can relate to constantly reminded me that 1+1=2, and that got me through that moment. Today I mark my 200 days. It's not a holiday, nor is it a huge accomplishment. To me, it's just another day because regardless how many days I have behind me there is always one more tomorrow. I will never be cured but the battle with my addiction is over, as long as I continue to post up every morning. All I can do is say thank you to you guys for sticking with me. With your permission I will continue to mark my + 1 and smile knowing that I am beating nicotine today and that's all that matters. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip.

  6. 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.

  7. Before I quit dipping, like everyone else, I was always worried about where my dip was and how much I had left. I had a database of every gas station that had [redacted brand name*] , and never went without it. I eventually “wised up”, and started ordering two 5-can logs that I picked up every Monday. So, I was dipping at least 10 tins a week, but would often have to pick up one or two to get me through the weekend. I really never said to myself that I am going to quit dipping someday. I thought it was my identity, and I was in such denial, that I convinced myself that all of the health risks (e.g., cancer, hypertension, etc.) were just propaganda and it would be extremely unlikely to ever happen to me. In fact, I would jokingly tell friends and families that these warnings were just “old wives tales”. I WAS SICK. As an addict, I thought of dip as one of my only true friends. I am a recovering alcoholic of 9 years, and I always thought of dip as the only release I had, since I no longer drank or smoked weed. But like I said, I was dipping around the clock, so a dip never took the edge off or gave me a release anymore. It was just something I had to do. It was a cure to nicotine withdrawal, which it caused, and nothing else. Fast forward to just before I quit dipping, I was diabetic and starting to have minor circulation issues. Nothing major, but definitely a direct result of the nicotine. I had lied to my doctor (and dentist) about using nicotine my whole life, but finally fessed up. The doctor made it absolutely clear, that I was at way higher risk of hypertension, loss of circulation, etc. because I was diabetic and I absolutely had to quit dipping . For some reason, I finally had a moment of clarity and said “what the fuck am I doing with this shit?” I at least had the ability to be honest and admit that I could never be someone who could have one dip a day, so I knew continuing to dip meant continuing with 10+ tins a week. I found this site looking for methods to quit dipping or nicotine cessation. I knew quitting dip cold turkey was for me because I knew I’d never successfully quit doing nicotine replacement or slowly weening off. I remember being extremely slammed at work, but had read enough in the guest sections to know that no time was going to be a good time. So I decided that I was going to make this cold turkey quit memorable. The day I quit dipping, I threw out a couple of tins, logged on to this GREAT site, and stayed QUIT ever since. Man, those first 3-4 days are pretty fucking brutal. I knew they would be. But, if I got through day 1, I had to get through day 2. There was a lot of comfort knowing all the QUITTERS here went through what I did and lived to tell about it. Shit, by day 3 sometimes I was in withdrawal so bad I thought I was hallucinating and could barely open an email, but since I got through days 1 and 2, I told myself I’d be a pussy piece of shit if I caved on day 3. I kept with my mantra: “I am an ex-dipper who used to dip”. Day 4 sucked, but it was easier than day 3. By the next week, I was only having cravings during certain periods of the day. One day, the cravings finally went away. I think doing this cold turkey was psychologically the best way to do it, because I got to experience the pain of withdrawal to let me know how big of an addict I was. I can always reflect at how happy I am today that I am no longer a dipper. But what I really reflect on is that how sad it was I was so addicted and in such denial (and SELFISH). I am such a slob, that my desk drawer at work still has dip shavings in it because I never cleaned it out. Serves as a reminder to constantly having stained pants, always needing a spitter, and spitting on my dick while taking a shit one time (or two) because I didn’t have a spitter. That’s all history..

  8. Just by being here and reading this. you have your foot in the door. Quitting Dipping is simple, but it is not easy. We are here to make it easier, but this quitting dip support group does not offer unconditional help. You have to pay the piper… that means posting scroll every day, buying in, and unfucking your head when it comes to quit. Eliminate ‘try”, “hope”, and “want to” from your quit vocabulary. Just do it. Eliminate the excuses. Every step you add between you and dip is a good one. Every trigger ( ) you remove from your life now is a good thing. People here will actively try to help you quit dipping. You can reach out too. Dig around on the forums and find people with common interests or that you think are funny. Send them a message. You and your choices are what drives your quit. It's not a stretch to say that quitting gives you a ton more energy and time to do stuff you didn't used to think were necessary, important, or even possible. Because you used to spend all of your free time dipping. As if that is an actual activity instead of just delivering a drug to drug receptors. But dipping used to suck the life out of me. I was a lazy piece of shit. Even if I was out doing things, I was always plotting ways to get out of them to go back and dip in peace, or thinking about how long I had until my next dip. If I was out doing something while dipping, I would be sitting around thinking about how when I got home, I could have a bigger dip. All of that is so fucking stupid, it will blow your mind when you realize you don't think that way anymore.

  9. 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).

  10. Ready to quit dipping, and wondering if you can do it? Will it be too hard? Prepare for the worst, and deal with the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal as they come. What is the timeline of quitting dip? I never had anywhere near as much trouble as I did during that first week. I was dealing with insomnia, cold sweats, headaches, etc. That could be down the road for you, or you might find a way to head those symptoms off, whether through exercise, drinking water, or using oral fixation substitutes like hard candy, seeds, or fake chew. Listen to the wide variety of advice guys will give you here, and find what works for you. Either way, no looking back, just forward. You will hear “embrace the suck” and this means “remember how this feels, focus on what it means, and never go through it again”. For me it was more a matter of learning to slow down and focus on the craves. Breath deep and know that I can control this. You will find power in beating nicotine. People have different symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and struggle with different aspects of quitting dip. But every quit is the same. It all starts with the quit scroll.

  11. 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.

  12. Maybe you’ve already done enough reading around the site to know that your story is not unique, and that your addiction doesn't seem out of place with what we all used to do, before we got help to quit dipping. Or maybe this is your first visit to Quitting Dip. There was hardly any moment of any day where I wasn't getting my fix. Every waking moment. No buzz, no reason to be doing it... other than scratching that never ending itch. Does that sound like something I was getting enjoyment out of? Or does it sound like someone totally fucking addicted who is letting a drug run every facet of life? Fuck that shit. Isn't it exhausting to worry about dipping all day? To worry about the consequences? One of the biggest reasons I quit dipping was asking myself the question, “why are you doing this?” It’s a question I was unable to answer, while on the other hand, I found it much easier to answer the question “why should you quit dipping?”. The reasons to quit dipping pile up pretty quickly… Do you want to be in control of your own brain, rather than letting a weed control it? Do you want to be free to do any activity without wondering if you will have enough dip to last through the day, or if you will even be able to chew there? Do you enjoy your good health, or do you want to die from 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 out in your mind before. You know that logically you shouldn’t continue chewing tobacco… but for some reason, you continue. Why? Why do you keeping doing this if you know there is literally no good reason to continue, and so many reasons to quit dipping? The answer is simple: you aren’t taking control of the decision. You’ve allowed the reasonable part of your brain 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 for a while. Don’t think about being quit next month, or next year, think about being quit when you wake up tomorrow, and what an accomplishment that will be. Then 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 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.
