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 ourself 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.
 

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.
