  1. This method of quitting dip, cold turkey -balls on the table, is the only approach you need to quit dipping, and ultimately the only one that works. None of us are special here. We all signed up looking for a solution to nicotine addiction, and we all found it. Couple things, stop "hoping" that this place can help you kick it, and get on board. There is no hope about it. You can do it if you follow a simple program. Put your name on the Plebe Quit Scroll, and say “Day 1”. That is a promise not to use today. Keep your word. Come back tomorrow. For the space in between, read the site, talk to some bros, answer some questions, get some advice, eat some seeds, go for a jog, and get some sleep. Don't be a victim. All of the discomfort you feel while in nicotine withdrawal is your brain begging for a substance that you are addicted to. Isn't that a scary thought? The minute you take out your last dip, you're on the way to getting the poison out of your system forever, and you can start feeling more normal. What I mean by "don't be a victim"- don't just wallow in the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, feeling sorry for yourself… instead, kick ass. Go lift some weights. Tell someone here they are a fucking cocksucker. Start with the first guy to respond to your intro. Run around the block. Do some jumping jacks. DRINK WATER! Drink water until your teeth are floating. The more water you drink, the faster this poison gets flushed out of your system. The more you sweat, the more water you will crave. This fucking poison has been wrecking havoc on your body over the entire course of your adult. Now's the time to free yourself, but not without putting in some work. As you begin to put some days between you and nicotine, start to re-wire your thinking towards tobacco. Once the initial rush of stopping starts to wear off, you don't want to start romancing tobacco. Think of it for what is really is.... a plant that' was stealing your money, health, and the time that you could be spending with loved ones, and finally- stealing the time you have remaining on this earth. It's not your buddy and it's never made a damn thing better or easier. The 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 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.
  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. You gotta be quitting dip for yourself. Whenever someone mentions that another person is happy with their efforts it always raises a red flag with me. I ask myself whether this person is quitting dipping for themselves or someone else? Who owns your quit? Think about it. Quitting dipping for them never worked before, so don’t quit dip for them now. The good news is that by quitting for YOU, everyone else benefits by default. Make a promise not to Dip today, and put your name on the scroll. Being on the scroll gives you a 100% chance of being quit today, versus low odds of some other dude who also stops today, and just tries to gut through the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal on will power. What does it matter to him whether he has one later in the day, he can try again tomorrow, right? There’s no “try again tomorrows” when you’ve actually quit dipping. It’s final. This is it. Your only chance. The only chance you need though. To us, the daily promise MEANS fucking something. We don't just jot it down as a way to count our days quit. We're all in this fight together, and we back each other up with that daily promise. Scroll is the FOUNDATION of all of our quits! When a dude posts his promise, we expect it to be money in the bank. Now, if you’re on the scroll, you are going to keep your word, so dip is off the table. Stop jerking off to it. A number of us take the view that when you have actually quit dipping, it becomes permanent. I myself am quit forever, and I'm on scroll first thing every day. There is no conflict between being permanently done with nicotine, and still posting that you won't use nicotine every single day. “One Day At A Time” (ODAAT) is the right mentality for a newb who is struggling, but at a certain point a switch needs to be flipped. The switch between needing to promise to keep you quit, and posting your promise as a reminder or an affirmation of quit. The only variation is how to realize that “certain point". For me, it was pretty damn quick ... even prior to 100 days. But I'm a stubborn mofo, who REFUSES to let that shit back into my life again. I'm not saying that my life is a giant picnic of happiness, I'm just saying that there are no craves, and I know I am never going to have nicotine in my body again. Quitting dipping isn’t a cure-all for every problem in your life. But it sure helps. None of my current problems have anything to do with my addiction. They are completely separate. At some point nicotine became nothing more than a worthless attempt at coping with my other problems, in addition to being the root of many other problems. Nicotine has zero effect on my mood, health, finances, marriage, employment, socializing, etc. It's out of my life. On the other hand, being quit has a tremendous effect on my life, for the better. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip. If you are looking for a support group, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT DIPPING COLD TURKEY. You might think that there are lots of ways to quit dipping, but there's not. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts at quitting dipping. You can't quit dipping halfway. You also can't use nicotine replacement products. No vaping. No nicotine lozenges. No nicotine gum. Why not? Because you can't quit nicotine by using a different form of nicotine. Why do you want to extend the length of time that you experience the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping anyway? Get it over with. Rip the band aid off. Put that shit in the rear view mirror. When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit dipping, but terrified of actually quitting, everything can seem overwhelming. Quitting dip is a lot easier than you think. It is all a mind game, and we know all the ways to win. If you are ready to quit, the best way to quit dipping cold turkey is to join this site, and start posting. 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.
  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. Like you, before coming to this site we all thought that "quitting" meant giving something-up. That we'd spend the rest of our lives missing dip. What you'll soon learn is that you won't miss a thing. Everything is so much better without dip. Driving, working, watching TV, taking a crap, it's all better without nicotine. The next few days are going to suck. A lot. But we all did it; and as long as you're not a giant pussy, you can too. Jump in, quit hard, freedom is just around the corner. This whole fucking site is nothing but a ton of quit disguised as guys playing grab ass, so let it seep in. If you have specific questions about quitting dipping, you'll get a lot of good answers. Unlike other "methods" that just keep you addicted to nicotine, our method of quit relies on your integrity, and your honor. Post your promise every morning, keep your promise all day. Nothing else worked for me, either. Nothing else worked for any of us here - but this works. Why does it work? This entire method of quitting dip is built upon one simple thing: trust. We make a promise to each other that we won't use nicotine today, and then we keep that. When tomorrow comes, we'll do the same thing. I don't know for certain that these guys didn't have a dip today, but I would bet my life that they didn't, because I put my trust in them and their word, because they are men of integrity. Some of us have been quitting dip together for thousands of days, and I know that daily promise means everything to them. That promise means everything to me, and none of us here would be quit without it. If that promise to quit dipping didn't mean everything around here, then this whole place would be nothing but a bunch of fucking losers perpetually on day 3 again, because they didn't care. Sack up. If you have any balls, find them and keep your goddamn word. The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip.

  6. 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..

  7. Do you think you are going to "miss" dip, if you quit dipping? Do you feel like dip is your friend, a constant companion? A trusted buddy who is always there for you when you need it? That lucky charm which is always with you in the good times? That kind of thinking is poison when it’s time quit dipping. We call it dip “romancing”. In order to be successful, you have to change your whole mindset. It’s not that hard, because dip romancing is all a lie. Dip isn’t your friend. It’s a parasite. It wasn’t your companion, it was an anchor you were dragging along. It wasn’t there to help any needs... except getting rid of the withdrawal symptoms it’s absence was causing in the first place.. It didn’t make the good times, the good times were in spite of it. How can you control romancing the can after you have quit dipping? Slap yourself across the face every time you think like that, if you need to. No bullshit. That will get real tired, real fast. Another members talks about dropping down and doing 10 pushups every time he thought about having a dip after he quit dipping. It's called negative reinforcement. It discourages weak thoughts. Other methods... a strong rubber band around your wrist. When you think about chew, you snap that rubber band so hard it hurts. I used to stop whatever I was doing and audibly say "Shut the fuck up". Some guys who have quit chewing tobacco recommended putting your balls in a drawer and slamming it shut. I never tried that one. But how can you spend time here, on a website that is all about how to quit dipping, without thinking about dipping? I am on this site all the time, and I never think about dipping. I think about quitting. They are different things. Guys who think about dipping act like they are missing out when they quit chewing tobacco, and they are going to fail. Guys who think about quitting think about the feelings that drove them to quit in the first place. Whether or not they know it, the biggest thing that drove people to find this place was a desire from freedom. Get the monkey off your back, and quit dipping.

  8. We are all wired differently, but as far as I am concerned there is only one way to quit dipping, and we have to do the work to wire ourselves to quit dipping like that. There is no physical withdrawal from quitting dip after the first 5 or 6 days, at most. If you are feeling like a vagina, maybe you need someone to tell you. If you have actually quit dipping, you closed the door on nicotine. Fuck craves, you fucking bitch. Goddamn motherfucking pussy. I wired myself to think that way. Just keep repeating it. I slammed the door. Burned the ships. Built a fortress between me and dip. Why can't some people do it? Because they don't want to, or they haven't tried. Maybe they have residual fear of “forever”, which is why a lot of people start newbs off by telling them to quitting dipping “ODAAT” (one day at a time). But that shit is unnecessary if you steel your will and accept nothing but success.... because no one has ever been forced to fail at quitting dip. It’s a choice. There is no magic trick. Stop being a fucking weak piece of shit. Stop talking like you are weak, stop obsessing about dip. Stop being a bitch. I think I can help people "get it" at any time, because all it takes to help them is for them to engage here. If you are strong, we will know it. Even if you are just pretending to be strong, it will work. Remember that the words you use here will help shape your thoughts, and thoughts become actions... so you must consciously change the way you talk, think and act towards nicotine. When a pre-caver engages with their weak will and words full of nicotine romance, we will have someone slap them hard enough across the face to get them to snap out of it. If they don't get it, maybe they leave here and stop trying to quit dipping. Doesn't matter, they were already on that course. If you are going to cave, does it matter if it's today or next year? Not to me. Forever means forever. It begins with the concrete thought that it is possible to quit dipping. I know it is possible to quit dipping, because I did it. Then you need the plan to get to “quit dipping forever”, and we have that here. B+A=Q . Brotherhood + Accountability equals Quit. Nothing can ever change my mind that quitting is good, and slavery is bad. If nothing can ever change my mind, how can I fail? I am in charge of this vessel. I fucking drilled that kind of thinking into my head, for days and weeks. NEVER AGAIN. FUCK YOU DIP. Once that is in place, how could this be difficult? I don't know, I’m 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. 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. 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.
  10. I started Dipping and smoking around the age of 16. Most of my good buddies were doing it so it seemed like the social thing to do. My addiction grew in my college years and got to the point prior to my quit where the only time I didn't have a dip in my mouth seemed to be when I was sleeping or eating. Ultimately I got fed up with being controlled Many of us open this door thinking that quitting dipping is about doing it for other people or external reasons; everything and everyone but ourselves. While many others in your life will benefit when you quit dipping, they will have no influence on a successful quit. The only one that truly cares about you and your addiction is you, and the addicts that quit dipping with you here. My wife was very happy when I quit, but 3 years later she pays my addiction to nicotine no mind (nor should she).I live my life normally now, free from nicotine 's grasp, but I quit dipping first thing at QD everyday. Quitting dipping works when you draw a line in the sand, and choose to get your life back. This is your life and this is the time that you will succeed. We support you but we ain't gonna do it for you. You just have to get through today. Take it hour by hour, minute by minute. Withdrawals differ from addict to addict but 4 days is typical. Once you get through today you can deal with tomorrow when it gets here. Whenever you get a craving, just close your eyes and breathe, and it should pass. I found that when my cravings hit, I would count to 30 out loud. Normally by the end of 10 it was gone. Everyone here has been in your shoes, and we have your back so long as your name is on the scroll and you honor your promise. The next few days won't be fun but you never have to do them again. There is nothing you'll face that will make you dip, which is to say--you're in complete control. Soon you will transition from romancing nicotine to hating nicotine. All nicotine does is keep you using it. I used to think that dipping was giving me something to do when I had nothing to do. I bet we ALL used to think that if we were bored, throwing in a fatty would pass the time. So, that there is pure addict speak, because when you think about it...is putting turd in your mouth and spitting really doing something? Like, are you really less bored? It's just one of the chains of addiction we must break ...dipping out of boredom doesn't make you less bored. You’re just finding a way to rationalize your usage at that moment, an action spurned by the lizard brain that needs its chemical. But in every aspect of life, work, your time in the woods, your time in a boat… those are activities that you used to do with a dip in your mouth, and maybe you think that you can’t do them without one. You can. And it’s better. Once you've quit dipping, all of those same things are just going to be things you do. Period. Any good vibes you have about you and your favorite can are all lies and addict speak.
  11. 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. People who believe in the "Nic Bitch" are shirking responsibility for their past failures, and laying the groundwork for excuses to fail again at this attempt. 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.
  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.
  13. Once I realized that this method of quitting dip was gonna work, where no others had, the next thing I did was start telling the people in my life that I had quit dipping, in order to kill that sneaky addict who had become my identity for over 30 years. Your willingness to shine a light on your addiction outside of this forum is a strong indication that you are actually quit. I told people that previously had no idea I even dipped, and I worked with them every day for years. Sneaky bastard with a dip on one side and some extra strength gum on the other. I let nicotine own me. You need to take the time to get to know people here, and let them get a chance to know you. That is half of the entire left side of the equation A + B = Q. (Accountability + Brotherhood = Quit). Without the brotherhood, there is no accountability. Without either, you are on your own. In the past, we have constantly let ourselves down when it comes to our addiction to nicotine. And everyone here would again, eventually, without the accountability. It shouldn't be long before you realize that you don't need multiple layers of safeguards. It's simple- integrity. Look it up if you aren't clear on what that is. Grab a hold of yours and this shit is a no-brainer. This place isn't about resets, so do not put that shit in your mouth for any reason. You are quit. Not trying to quit. Quit. From day one we preach you quit for yourself. No one causes us to cave. We each make and own the decision to keep or break our promise each day. Flush that worn out excuse book. Its time to own it. Relationship, job, health or whatever life stress hits us is just life, and has nothing to do with being quit. You don't get back at a shitty job, a nagging spouse, or a disease by shoving shit in your mouth. You win against those things by being the best you can be in spite of those things. You win by being a man of your word who can respect the man looking back at him in the mirror. What do you see in that mirror? What are you going to do about it?
  14. When the Corona lockdown started, I bet a lot of you guys who haven’t quit dipping yet, [or who are new to the Quitting Dip community], were worried about running out of dip. I bet you hoarded dip.I bet you that you ordered more than you ever had before, perhaps bought a brand you didn’t “like” as much, because “What if I run out of the good stuff”? I bet you felt sorry for the guys who couldn’t find any dip, but told yourself you would quit as soon as you ran out…. Only to ensure you never ran out, because you would make special trips out just to go to the convenience store to load up. Sure, you told your wife you were looking for paper towels, but you knew they wouldn’t be there. How do I know all that shit? Because I used to be a loser, just like you. My addiction to dip had a central location in the middle of my brain, pushing buttons and pulling levers, and I was not only being controlled, I was so fucked in the head I didn’t even know I was being controlled. A couple times during this pandemic, around here there would be a mention of something to the effect of, “thank god I’m not worried about stocking up on dip right now”, or “can you imagine if you had to hide being a ninja dipper from your wife all day, every day, during this shit?” Well, I CAN imagine it. It would fucking suck. Did it suck for you? Is that why you’re here? Well, news flash, every day of being controlled by dip fucking sucks, you just didn’t notice it as much because you had more distractions. Sitting around in your house all day worrying about how long you can last before going back to your stash, what activity you can use to justify dipping, how much you have left, where you are going to get more… it’s exhausting. It’s pathetic. I can imagine all that because I make myself remember. Even years removed from dipping, I force myself to think of pussies like you. Because if I didn’t, I might forget that I was a pussy too. Now the good news…. When you quit dipping, all of that changes. You will wake up in the morning, and not give one fuck about chewing tobacco. You will never even consider using it. Sounds like bullshit, right? Because you’ve attempted to quit dipping before, right? What did you do, throw out half a can and say “that was my last one!” Then what, did you even have a plan? Were you going to hold your breath and not let it out until you got Quit magically? Because that is what trying to quit is before you know how to do it. Maybe you used some other form of nicotine like nicorette gum, and pretended you weren’t just getting a fix off of it? Those weren’t plans to quit, just ways to stop--- until you gave yourself permission to use again. And you will always give yourself permission... until you understand the truth about quitting dipping. You don’t want chewing tobacco, you don’t love the taste, it doesn’t feel good. You are addicted to it, pure and simple, and everything else is a smoke screen… lies that big tobacco and your own brain create to keep you from realizing the truth. Once you do see the truth, and you see what you’ve done with all the time and energy wasted on dipping, you can develop the hatred that we have for it. The mindset change is what makes quitting dipping easy for our members. We will help you get there.
  15. 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. One of the biggest reasons we’re still here is that someone, at some point, helped us and taught us how to quit chewing tobacco. We are hoping to help you quit dipping the same way that someone did for us as newbs. The eventual taste of freedom when you quit dipping, and the value of the assist from those who knew how to quit better than us foggy bastards, is pretty much immeasurable. The gratefulness of “being free” leads dudes who have decency to try to pay it forward, and backward. Recovered addicts with self-awareness, and a firm grasp on the struggle to quit dipping ... that's who most of us are. You'll find that the experiences you thought were unique to you regarding dipping are universal among those of us here. We've all been there. I dipped for 22 years and TRIED to quit dipping by myself more times than I care to admit... before finally breaking free from nicotine. It's simple here: we make a promise 1st thing every morning to ourselves and our fellow quitters, that we aren't going to dip that day. Sack up - as you know from prior "stoppages" the first few days are tough. They’re actually unbearable if you don’t understand how quitting dipping should be done. Get on here and read as much as you can, and drink lots of water and try to exercise. That's a start. 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?
  16. Are you quitter? Long-term (forever) quits come with the aid of a kick ass support group. You've got one here. If there is one thing we demand from you as a member of this community, it's posting your promise to quit dipping every morning... Wake, Piss, post scroll. Make it routine. Promise us, and yourself that you will not use nicotine for the day (in any forms BTW, this is a zero tolerance site). Keep your promise. Days will start stacking. Just look around at all the users in the world - do you envy them for being Big Tobacco's bitch? You shouldn't. You should feel stronger and prouder than every single last one of them. Ask yourself at the end of the day... do you want to be a little bitch or do you want to be a man of true willpower in the face of adversity, a man of integrity and strength - someone your wife and kids can look up to and be proud of. You'll see there is only one real answer. Willpower is like weightlifting - the more you train it the stronger it will become. Each day you'll become more powerful in the fight against nicotine. Plus you made a promise to yourself, me and all the others here that you won't just give up, but you'll continue to kick nicotine's ass every day. We're here for you bro - we've never even met but I guarantee I’ll be a better friend to you than nicotine ever could be. Keep on quitting dip and one day you'll be able to help someone going through the same exact feelings you are - you may save that person's life. Fuck cravings, cravings are things that pregnant chicks get. There is a big difference between having thoughts of dip cross your mind each day, and "wanting dip". If you want dip, you're just marking time until your failure. What do you desire about it? The stink, the mess, the stigma, the shame? There’s no buzz anymore, just a scratched itch, so we’re just talking about the chemical fix these days? You’re a junky. No one wants that chemical in them except junkies. When you quit dipping, that withdrawal will pass after a few days. The intensity of the cravings are going to be much worse for someone who hasn't wrapped their mind around the fact that Quit means Quit. If you are leaving a crack in your door, romancing the years you were slave, thinking maybe someday you'll chew again, it's called "white knuckle" and it fucking sucks, and it's not going to work. You need to change your mindset. The first year after you quit dipping is a year of situations that will all be new to you. Everything can be a “trigger” if you make it so. The bottom line is that pussies will find an excuse to dip again if they want to, and quitters will dig deep and find a way to overcome any trigger, no matter what. Caving is not an option after you quit dipping. Every single trigger that you conquer is a victory, and a big one, because then you know you can beat that trigger again and again. Post your promise and keep it.
  17. 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. For me it's about doing whatever it takes to never have anyone look for me or question my commitment. A commitment to quit dipping, so I am no longer living like a shallow, selfish and sneaky addict everyday. I am grateful that these guys will hold my feet to the fire if I don't show up. It won't come in the form of a “hope all is well and by the way are you gonna post today?” I fully expect to be told to get my shit together because I will most likely need it, in the event it ever happened. Quit is an attitude change that won't take long to manifest itself - after you prove to yourself and us that you've got the balls to make it through some nicotine withdrawals without running back to the can for a one pinch at a time cancer addiction. If your brain is telling you that you deserve a dip, or you can have a small quick one, don't listen. You don't deserve a dip... Dip is not a reward, it’s a burden. As an addict, you need to learn about Quit. Quitting dipping doesn't mean you white knuckle it through the day. Quit is your new way of life. Taking nicotine off the table with a scroll post forces you to start up new routines. Never look back. After the first couple of days, you’ll be over the biggest hump. Keeping active here will keep your mind trained on what quit really means. Read all you can on here. This is the time and the place that you will succeed. We support you but we cant do it for you. I never intend to go through what you are going through again, so I won't. You won't have to either. Quitting is as simple as being determined and being a man of your word. It's all about discipline, baby. If you want it bad enough, you'll do it, simple as that. 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? 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.

  18. You're in the right spot to quit dipping for good, because there is no better place to learn how to quit dipping. There is one tenet we all follow, and allowed us all to quit dipping: Post scroll, don't dip ... repeat daily. Post your daily promise on the scroll at the beginning of your day everyday. There are two parts to this website. First is the serious, no nonsense portion - your pledge to quit chewing tobacco. This part of Quitting Dip is relentless, intense, and often unforgiving… but a daily promise is a method proven to work effectively to quit dipping. The second part of this site is a juvenile frat house to which you become entitled to participate as a member of the community should you so choose. Quitting chewing tobacco is the only portion that is necessary - you MUST log in everyday and make your promise to the rest of us that you will quit dipping that day. Break that promise, or refuse to be held accountable, and you won't be here long. The second part is gratuitous; feel free to ignore it. But I can assure you that if you are engaged regularly with the baddest of the bad ass quitters on here, your nicotine quit will be stronger. There is ZERO tolerance for anything nicotine related. That's the enemy, and it doesn't matter which form it is delivered. We quit cold turkey, and there are no relapses here ... no second chances. Make this your final quit. YOU have the power to control this damn plant ... stop letting it control you, steal money out of your pocket and years from your life. I suggest you read everything on this site you can, and chime in here and there. Build a web of accountability. One of the cornerstones of a solid-ass quit is telling EVERYONE in your life you're quit for good ... and asking them to hold your feet to the fire. An addict doesn't like to do that. An addict knows that a proclamation of that magnitude removes the opportunity to go back. Well, at least it removes the chances if you're a man who holds true to his promises. So fess up to the wife, tell her you're in this quit balls-deep. Shout the you have quit dipping from the rooftops. Make it humiliating to even think of turning back. The withdrawal is going to last 4 or 5 days. Sometimes it's very uncomfortable. But it's worse if you sit around feeling sorry for yourself. Get out and do something. Make those minutes that seem like hours productive. Discomfort passes. We all deal with discomfort in life. Think that chemo is like getting a blow job? It’s not. Don’t take my word, ask the dead guy that thought nicotine was a treat he allowed himself to have forever 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....

  19. 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. Lots of people come here with the wrong ideas about how to quit dipping, or they’re quitting dip for the wrong reasons. But if you stick around long enough to get hammered into submission by people that know more than you, there's a part deep down that wants to quit dipping, and not beholden to nicotine. But special butterflies that come in here, drop their worthless excrement of nicotine love, and then disappear are much more difficult to support. One must leave landmines of quitting wisdom here and there and hope one of these dipsticks runs over them. It's a much less effective formula for molding quitters. If you're too good for us, too smart and too cool for this quitting dip support group, that's awesome. Peace out. Start your own site to quit dipping where you make the rules. I hate to just give up on people, no matter how stubborn or hardheaded they may be. I too am an asshole to deal with. It took me a while to get to the realization that I was really cared for and wanted here, because of the way I came in to Quitting Dip. We don't require conformity. The diversity of this place is what makes it wonderful. Yes, we are all males, but we couldn't be a bigger band of misfits and beautifully different in every way. Every way but one. We are a tribe. Bound together by a common affliction. An insidious nicotine addiction that requires eternal and constant vigilance. Together we are unstoppable, unbreakable, and unbeatable. If there's one thing that I've managed to reconcile in my tiny little head, it's that quitting dip with a brotherhood of like minded motherfuckers makes my quit that much stronger. You have to know what quit is before you can really quit dipping. Anything less than full commitment is likely to lead to failure. The selection of douchebags here are the 20% that get it done. But there's no half ass quit, or "I don't need to be as committed" or "I want to be able to hookah to bang chicks." There's no half ass option, in my opinion. There's no such thing as half ass cancer; there should be no half ass quit. I make a promise every morning to these guys that I will not use any form of tobacco for today. We will keep each other quit. One bad decision is all it takes & this place and these guys are my guard against it. It's only my promise for today and I'm only as good as my word. It's not a binding promise if I'm only making it to myself. It's been an important part of my day for almost 4 years now.
  20. 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. The good news is if you dig in and quit dipping here you'll find that you are surrounded by a bunch of like-minded dipshits who tried to quit on their own ... and failed. Only with the support of a bunch of common-users did we all pull our heads out of our asses, and our fingers out of a tin. Life is fucking great after you quit chewing tobacco. I'm no longer a slave to same damn weed. Women dig me more, bucks smell less of me, ducks seem to light in the decoys that much more readily now. Well, 2 outta 3 ain't bad. Where was I? Oh yeah. We post a daily promise here, and we quit dipping to START our day. It's funny how promising to a bunch of strangers that you won't use nicotine for the day works. After a while, we're definitely not strangers. We're on your side, fighting the same battle. You CAN do this ... just search for the testicular fortitude it takes to be consistent, and get on scroll to start your day each and every day. Quit Dipping 1st, everything else falls into place. 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.
  21. Are you here because you are having a health scare? Do you have a little boo boo in your mouth that you think is cancer? Well, it’s probably not. Does that mean it’s not time to quit dipping? Does your throat hurt real bad? Think you’re going to have to use one of those vibrator things for the rest of your life? Fuck your pain in the throat, pussy. It means nothing. It’s probably not related to your chewing. Does that make you want to chew again? If so, pack your bags, bitch. We didn’t quit dipping because of a sore throat, we didn’t quit dipping because our doctor said to, and we didn’t quit dipping because our wife said we had to. We quit because we wanted to be free of addiction. Because we couldn't bear to live under the yoke of slavery to nicotine. Because we wanted to be in control of our lives. Because we wanted to live. The first thing you need to understand is what QUIT is. It isn’t sitting around lamenting about the fact you used to chew, lusting for it like some chick you banged for a while, and it's not about being nervous you might run into a tough situation like a long drive, or dipping when you are sad or stressed out. It's knowing that nicotine never helped you, and did nothing for you. That you don't give a fuck about anything else except the fact that you are in control of yourself. That you have no desire to chew. Right now you might be having physical withdrawal, your body might start doing whatever it can to make you feel like you need it. That’s different than wanting to chew. I've got good news, if you "don't want to chew again" you never will again. Because unlike what that statement makes it sound like, no one accidentally has a dip, and there is definitely no chance someone sticks a gun to your head and forces you to dip. Talking like a passive observer who is hoping for the best is not going to work. Talk like you have a pair, and also give a shit about the outcome. If you're here to "try" and "hope," don't bother. Start speaking all quit and only quit right now, because it is the only way to make it. Your actions will follow your words, actions become habits, and habits become character, Whether you want to believe it or not, (because it makes you accountable), you are responsible for all of your actions. You are the master of your fate. I WILL NOT EVER CHEW TOBACCO AGAIN. That's a fucking promise. I make it every day, and that promise is rock solid. If I commit to making it every day, this shit isn't even difficult. Go ahead, think about it. If you make that promise every morning, you only have two options. Quit dipping, or break your word. If breaking your word is an option, this place is not for you. Will you make a promise to quit every day? Will you keep your word? Will you commit to doing those simple steps every day in order to save your life and be free? If yes, this shouldn't be hard. Fuck one day at a time. Take the pressure away. Commit. Every day. There is no excuse, there is no reason, there is no anything that will lead to a place where nicotine is anything other than poison. 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? 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.

Look for messages on the scroll or in your inbox from other dudes who have done this already.

If you think you are not ready to quit, what are you waiting for?
  22. If you are looking for a support group to help quit dipping, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and going cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip. This method of quitting dip, cold turkey -balls on the table, is the only approach you need to quit dipping, and ultimately the only one that works. None of us are special here. We all signed up looking for a solution to nicotine addiction, and we all found it. Couple things, stop "hoping" that this place can help you kick it, and get on board. There is no hope about it. You can do it if you follow a simple program. Put your name on the Plebe Quit Scroll, and say “Day 1”. That is a promise not to use today. Keep your word. Come back tomorrow. For the space in between, read the site, talk to some bros, answer some questions, get some advice, eat some seeds, go for a jog, and get some sleep. Don't be a victim. All of the discomfort you feel while in nicotine withdrawal is your brain screaming for a substance that you are addicted to. Isn't that a scary thought? The minute you take out your last dip, you're on the way to getting the poison to be out of your system and you feeling more normal. What I mean by don't be a victim- don't just wallow in the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, feeling sorry for yourself… instead, kick ass. Go lift some weights. Tell someone here they are a fucking cocksucker. Start with the first guy to respond to your intro. Run around the block. Do some jumping jacks. DRINK WATER! Drink water until your teeth are floating. The more water you drink, the faster this poison gets flushed out of your system. The more you sweat, the more water you will crave. This fucking poison has been doing havoc on your body over the course of your addiction. Now's the time to free yourself, but not without putting in some work! As you begin to put some days between you and nicotine, start to re-wire your thinking towards tobacco. Once the initial rush of stopping starts to wear off, you don't want to start romancing tobacco. Think of it for what is really is.... a plant that' was stealing your money, health, and the time that you could be spending with loved ones, and finally- stealing the time you have remaining on this earth. It's not your buddy and it's never made a damn thing better or easier. THE TIME TO QUIT DIPPING IS RIGHT NOW. And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting cold turkey, with the help of other quitters. The method that we use here.

  23. 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. Before I committed to quitting dip, I wasn't planning on really participating on this forum. I just was trying to read the boards so I could figure out what the fuck is wrong with my brain. I was just tired. Tired of making every excuse in the book. Tired of being drunk and walking to a 7-11 just to find they don't have my brand. Has an uber driver ever told you that YOU are the loser? Cause mine did after the third 7-11 we had checked cause Copenhagen mint was hard to find. Like that Uber driver has their shit together....I think not. One star you fucking hypocrite. Anyway I digress. What I'm really trying to get at is I'm here to quit dipping and to quit dipping forever. An hour per dip was par for me, which means, I dipped nearly every minute of the day sans eating, sleeping, and showering. Before I quit chewing tobacco I was “lucky” enough to be able to dip at work, cause I mainly worked from home. I go into an office for like 4 hours a day. Taking a break half way for a 20 min dip and also needing one to take dump. As soon as I got in my car to go home until bed, constantly. If you're wondering how to stay single, that's your answer. Once you quit dipping, each day free from that fucking poison is better than the previous. Triggers come early in a quit, but each time you internally say "fuck you" you're winning, The premise here is simple, but genius at the same time. Wake up, piss, post your promise not to use. Make it 24 hours, keep that cat shit out of your lip, repeat. Anyone with a set of marbles can make it 24 hours. Soon days start stacking into months, months into years ... you'll be quit. Just own your shit. By that I mean embrace what this site has to offer, and be a man of integrity and honor your word ... follow through. You're surrounded here by addicts to nicotine, and we've all got stories just like you. One major difference right now is that across the board, all of us despise that fucking plant ... what it does to your health, your wallet, your connections with family and friends. Slowly killing you, all the while you get to pay for it. Heaven is the freedom you can expect when quit dipping. You have no idea .. but you will. Flip that switch. Fuck nicotine. 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.

  24. 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. My addiction story is not unique. I was ninja dipper. I dipped pretty much anytime I was alone - driving, hunting, fishing, working, etc. I would make excuses to get away from my family so I could dip. I was a dipshit. I never thought I was addicted because I would rationalize that "I don't dip that much" and "I can quit whenever I want" and "most people don't even know that I dip so I am obviously not addicted". Then I tried to quit and couldn't. I struggled for a long time with various stoppages. Then I found the people here and learned how to quit. For me it was never about the physical withdrawals, my battles to quit would be on the mental side. The first months were hell and I will never forget. But, every day further away from day 1 gets better and better. Since you’re here, you have realized that treating an addiction to dip like a bad habit doesn't work. To quit dipping you have to treat this addiction like an addiction. You know you have to quit chewing tobacco, but you don't know yet that you can live every day without it. That is what it means to truly quit dipping. In time we'll teach you everything you need to know to be able to 100% say that you will never again use nicotine in any form...ever. Today, let's focus on posting a day 1 on scroll, and then through the couple of hours. THE TIME TO QUIT DIPPING IS RIGHT NOW. And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting dip cold turkey, with the help of other people. That's the method that we use here. If you found Quitting Dip, you’ve been struggling with nicotine for a long time. You have probably tried to quit. Perhaps you’ve even admitted to yourself that you are addicted to chewing tobacco. No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we all know it hasn’t worked. Otherwise, you would be quit, like the other members. The excuses you have used in the past won’t work here. The temporary withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping are not going to kill you. You can actually function at work and home without your “crutch” to make you “more relaxed”.
