Quitting Dip

Quitting Dip on Saturday, May 11, 2019


Recommended Posts

We all were totally irrational about nicotine before we quit dipping - whether it's crawling around outside in the dark looking for the tin you "threw" away in the yard or digging through all your shorts cause you are "sure" you left a spare can in one pair. 

After quitting dip, it does get tons better and you WILL be able to do all the things that are now major triggers for dipping.  We all had a million triggers; golfing, watching sports, grilling, yard work, long drives, taking a shit.  Hell I couldn't walk from here to there without my mind saying - "ok, time for some more nicotine".  The only way it's possible to quit dipping is if you post your promise first thing everyday that you won't use nicotine today.  I'll do the same and you can count on that.

You're not special.  We were all exactly where you are right now.  You will never miss dip, stop romanticizing it and start hating it.  It controlled your fucking life, man.  It controlled your every waking thought.  Do I have enough for tonight?  When can I buy another can?  Did I leave my can in my house/car/drawer?  When can I get away from all of these people so that I can put that stupid shit in my lip???? 

Once you've achieved the freedom we all have, you'll realize that everything is so much better when you quit dipping.  Everything.  I didn't think I could ever take a long drive again either, now I hate the pussy that even thought that.  Stop sounding like you're mourning the loss of your dog.  Stop anthropomorphizing it at all.  It's a weed.  You are claiming victory over a shitty addiction that made you a gigantic loser.  Get pissed.  Get righteous.  GET QUIT.

It only takes a few days.  Enjoy the suck of your brain re-wiring as it frees itself from the chains of the addiction you subjected it to for years. Welcome to the new you.

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.
