  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. 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.
  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 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.

  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.

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.

  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. 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.

  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. 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.

  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 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.

  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 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.

  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 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. 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. 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?
  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, 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. Any urge you might have should get cancelled out immediately by your scroll post. Because you are either a man of your word, or you are not. When you're ready to join us, put your name on the quit scroll. Until then, I can tell you that quitting dip will be the best and most important decision you've ever made. The bottom line is, if you want this to work, It will. Quitting dip is important, and it should be easy. You'll be amazed at the feeling of liberation that comes with quitting dipping. Most of us have made many positive steps in other aspects of our lives, and the catalyst was quitting dip. 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. 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?
  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 cigars. It’s the same way I won't spend one second of the day thinking about heroin. Because I don't do that shit either. My mind is exactly as strong as that of a person who never smoked or chewed, in that if someone offered a chew to them, they would be like "why would I want to do that?" Except stronger, because I will fucking kill you with my bare hands sooner than I would take that dip out of your hand, fuckstick. That shit feels good. But while my mind is never on dip, my quit is on my mind a lot. Your quit has to have value to you.My quit is a prized possession. If it doesn't matter to you, then you aren't going to protect it. You should know that’s how we all feel about our quits. They are important enough to create this brotherhood to collectively protect our quits. It requires maintenance. You will have quit highs and lows. This place offers a way to keep your quit strong. The days with few challenges are when the bullshit keeps us engaged. The Speeches and such can lift us when we are down. The victory threads offer a place to share our wins. That is about quit maintenance. Despite the addiction being firmly in a bulls-eye and in my rearview mirror, I will be here, because I dig it. And I'll be on the scroll as soon as I wake up, just like every fucking morning since the day I quit, because I need to be.

  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 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.

  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 quit. They treat using nicotine again like a fait accompli, something that is unavoidable due to certain circumstances or situations, but it's not. No, nicotine is not always waiting for you, about to put a knife to your throat and make you take it in your mouth. There is no “Nic Bitch”. It's a weed, dude. It's not an evil bitch or a spirit or something that's crafty and out to get you. Using it again is not an accident, nor can it "just happen". Over time, lots of addicts will start to listen to that little voice that one is ok, or romanticize the times they spent dipping, glossing over how desperate they were to quit the entire time. Stopping while constantly listening to that siren song is excruciating, and it’s called ‘white knuckle’ quitting. It makes quitting a lot like trying to hold your breath forever. At QD we don't white knuckle anything. We don't hope and pray to stay off nicotine, we are quit. Quit means living each moment while acting like a grown man, not a pussy that is "missing out" on something. We speak only quit because we are quit. There must be something to this, since we have dozens of 1000+ day quitters that are here first thing everyday and have never missed a day. Even though some of the guys here can be rough around the edges, it all boils down to seeing that nasty shit for what it is and never touching it again, which is what everyone here believes. Hey complacency, I'm right over here; bring it on. You have no chance because I'm posted up with my friends. 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.
  14. 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. 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 dipping. Don't be like me then, be me like me now. Quit. Us young people are generally stupid. But honestly, it feels good saying no. It makes you proud later on. I know what it's like, especially to be in college and bar age, to have a lot of buddies that dip. Hell, most of my friends still dip. Be proud of keeping your word and maintaining your quit during that party where your friend was dipping or there were a bunch of people smoking… but something you should keep in mind is that you should consider taking a break from partying around people who are still dipping or smoking like chimneys when your quit is new. Another good thing is to make it known as far and wide as possible that you have quit dipping, and it is just something you do not do anymore. Tell all your friends, and if they keep offering you dip because they think it's cool or funny, kick them in the dick and take their can, throw it on the ground, and stomp it. See how funny they think it is to offer to you again. Many of the members here will tell you that you should take a break from partying all together. But just like being offered a dip isn’t an excuse to take one, neither is being drunk. Although it’s the best practice to take a few weeks off, just due to the lowered inhibitions and poor judgement that go along with being drunk, you are still responsible for your actions. I'm not saying you can't drink at all, but you really ought to avoid getting totally smashed. There will come a time where you'll be in the bar and you'll get offered one, and you only have one choice. Be big enough to say no. I don't think I went to the bars for at least a month when I quit, I was too wary of falling into that trap. Anyway, so what if people are going to be dipping around you? If you think having the ability to obtain a dip during withdrawal is unique to your quit, you're not thinking clearly. Every single person here made the choice to quit. If we wanted to fail, dip was always waiting, they sell it everywhere. If you think being in close proximity to dip cans makes you weak, you will become weak. If you think you're quit as fuck, and couldn’t care less about some asshole drooling cancer next you, you will instantly be stronger. Fuck dip. If it's too hard right now, what is ever going to make it easier? Cancer? Well, when you quit after your Cancer DX, you will still get the same withdrawal symptoms from quitting dip. And you will still have the same ability to keep using if you want to, you just won’t. It's just a different mindset because you’ll be face to face with death. Adopt that mindset now, or die.
  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. After the first 5 days, it's all in your head, and It gets better when you decide it's better. That's why we talk about being quit. It's a state of mind, brother. You are free from nicotine. It doesn't own you anymore. You need to quit dipping cold turkey, like a fucking boss. Don't think about dip. At all. Crush little craves in your mind like the ugly cockroaches they are. Smile when those craves crunch under the boot of your quit. Don't hope it gets better...be better. Nobody here will ever say that quitting is easy, but it doesn't have to be as hard as "pure hell". Get quit. When you find yourself feeling like a pussy, slam that fucking door. Think about your quit. Think about freedom. When you find yourself talking like a pussy, slam that fucking door. Talk about quit. Talk like a quitter. Talk the talk until you walk the walk. Spend more time thinking about quitting dipping. Tie yourself to this place. Those that do are guaranteed success. Those that don't, well... sometimes they get pure hell. 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....

  16. 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. 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?
