Welcome to Quitting Dip. It's pretty simple, we quit dipping, counting one day at a time. We make a promise to quit chewing tobacco to ourselves and our fellow quitters first thing each day, and we keep our word. 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.  Things are probably going to suck for a little while, but you don't need to worry about that.  You just need to worry about today.   

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).  We are 100% nicotine free and don't practice nicotine replacement therapy. It doesn't work. Quitting Dip does.  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.  

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.
