  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 m
  2. 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 in
  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
  4. 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.
  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
  6. 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 ad
  7. 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 tr
  8. 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 Cent
  9. 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,
  10. The reason that you’ve never been able to quit dipping in the past is that you did it your way. Guess what? Your way sucks and doesn't work, obviously. So you need to quit dipping the QD way, which includes interacting with people who have been where you are right now. My quit is basically self-perpetuating at this point. Because I invested heavily in the brotherhood and accountability method at the onset of my quit and now it's deeply ingrained. That's how to quit dipping. Nothing makes me think about dip, nothing worries me, I don't give a fuck about chewing tobacco, cigarettes, or c
  11. Stop thinking about it, and quit dipping. This forum is fairly simple, post your daily promise to quit dip, make it 24 hours, then do it again. Soon the days will turn into weeks, weeks into months. Just remember to start your day with that little quit pill- your daily promise… that’s all the help you need to quit chewing tobacco. Commit yourself to quitting dipping. The folks here provide encouragement and accountability if you interact with them… we’re all from different walks of life, yet we’re all the same. People who have gotten help to quit chewing. Take advantage of the resou
  12. 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 y
  13. Have you “quit dipping” before, only to start up again after a few weeks or months, or even years? First of all, you didn’t actually quit dipping, because “Quit” is permanent. You were temporarily stopped. What were you doing the first time you dipped again, to end your stoppage? Were you looking for a buzz? Feeling stressed out and thought that dip cures stress? Were you trying to hurt someone? Trying to hurt yourself? Got drunk? Have you ever thought about it? because that moment when you fucked yourself should be important to you. It often gets brushed over by losers who don't understand

All through my college years I always said this: -"I'll quit dipping at the end of the semester" -"I'll quit dipping when I get my next serious girlfriend" -"I'm quitting dip now that I'm single" -"I'll quit dipping when I graduate" -"I'll quit dipping when I get a real job" But each and every time, those milestones came and went with me still fucking
  15. 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. Yes the physical withdrawal from quitting dip is real, but it will pass. The first few days are tough, but don’t wallow in it. It isn’t fatal. Since the missing oral fixation is something that's easy to fix, get something else in your mouth. Fake chew can help. I myself like Grinds coffee pouches. Bubble gum, sunflower seeds, hard candy, any number of things can help with this. Af

We call this first few days of quitting dip, and the withdrawl symptoms of cold turkey “t
  18. The question is, how are you going to handle it when you really quit dipping? Are you going to finally realize that previous stoppages you went through don't mean a damn thing, nothing! First and foremost before you quit dipping… before you post to the quit scroll... before any attempt at brotherhood or integrity, you have to reach down and find your nuts. Make yourself the promise that you have quit chewing tobacco, for good. When you have quit dipping, you will despise this addiction with every fiber in your body. You have to learn to hate it man. You have to despise this addiction mor
  19. Welcome to the Quitting Dip. We've all been through the chewing tobacco withdrawal symptoms and can say with absolute certainty that those negative side effects of quitting dip will pass soon. When your brain gets used to operating without nicotine, the clarity will feel amazing, and sleeping and shitting will return to you once again. I'm sitting here and don't have one inkling of a wish to ever return to using that ground up poison and will continue to come here and post my promise to these powerful allies that I will continue to preserve my freedom from nicotine until the day I take my la
  20. Although we tell new dudes to just focus on a single day of quitting, so as to not get overwhelmed, quitting dipping means that you are never going to do it again... So you’ve never quit dipping before, everything else was a stoppage. If you are ready to quit dip, you don't need to worry about saying "maybe" this time will be different. It’s already different because you are here. Previous stoppages probably involved “white knuckling”... spending all day wishing you were chewing tobacco again. Guys that have quit dipping don't have that problem. Relax and get ready to feel much better th

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

The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. “Quit” is an attitude change that won't take long to manifest itself - after you quit dipping and prove to yourself that you’ve got the balls to make it through the discomfort of some withdrawals without running back to the “one pinch at a time” cancer addiction. This is the time and the place that you will succeed and quit
  25. 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 a
