Quitting Dip

Quitting Dip on Tuesday, February 19, 2019


Recommended Posts

The point of this blog is to find the individual that has been mired in the quagmire of nicotine addiction, and doesn't think there is a way out. There is no real urgency to quit dipping.... except for the fact that every rational part of your brain has been screaming to quit. And the addiction keeps winning.

We all know that "just one more" plug of chewing tobacco is not going to give you cancer.... finishing that can you bought in the morning is not going to make a difference... except that we all know that eventually tobacco use causes cancer. You conveniently don't think about it often. But it's the only thing you think about when you have a sore on your lip from dipping, or notice that your gums are looking especially gray this morning. 

A member here recently stated, "when I found this place, I was at my wits end. I was willing to do anything to quit". But it takes a long time for a real addict to realize how important quitting is. Some longer than others. Some members here dipped for 30+ years. Some members aren't even 30 years old. The guys who belong here are those who really want to quit, and have come to realize that all other methods for quitting dip are useless... 


You might not be ready to hear that, but you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't already know it. You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts to "kick the habit". You can't quit 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.

When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit, but terrified of 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 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. 

If you aren't ready for that, or don't know if this will work for you, as a guest you can read some "speeches" of dudes who have been in your shoes. 

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. 

Just throw up a post somewhere, someone is going to see it. You can also post below with questions or comments before you sign up.
