Each  and every member of this community quit dipping through the same process... via a support system and the accountability offered by this forum. The foundation of t he method here is accountability,  and the only way to quit chewing tobacco is to quit cold turkey. The following  was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip .

Welcome to Quitting Dip. It's pretty simple, we quit dipping one day at a time, we make that promise to quit chewing tobacco to ourselves and our fellow addicts first thing each day, and we keep our word.  Things are going to suck for a while, but you don't need to worry about that.  You need to worry about today.  Above all we are honest here and men of our word.  Trust is paramount.  We call this first few days of quitting dip and the withdrawl symptoms of cold turkey “the suck”, because, well, it sucks.  You probably really need to consider telling  the wife, because you are probably going to demonstrate some signs of nicotine withdrawal and she needs to know why.  

That said, in deciding to quit dipping, you've made the best decision of your life.  Prepare by planning on drinking plenty of water to flush out the nicotine, and consider exercising to power through the worst parts.  Find something to do with your mouth…  many have found success with gum, sunflower seeds, hard candy and even fake chew (contains no nicotine).  Not a big fan of that myself but it is a personal decision.  We are 100% nicotine free and don't practice replacement therapy.  You should find yourself on this forum a lot.  Reach out to your bros here and read all the information you can.  Rage here and express your frustration and don't take it out on your family.  We all know what you are going through....we've all been there and we all made it through.  You can too.  It will get better.  


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. If you're 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. 

Once you sign up 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. 

The bottom line is that if you throw up a post somewhere, guys here will try to help you. But you have to help yourself first.
