Quitting Dip

Quitting Dip on Monday July, 8, 2019


Recommended Posts

I thought about quitting dip a lot before I actually quit dipping.  I had grown tired of the raw lips, the car that smelled like dip spit, the spitting in trash cans and the most embarrassing to me was having to reprint papers at work because I had put the "dip smudge" on them.  I don't have to tell you about all of those feelings... you've felt them or you wouldn't be here searching, the same way I was searching for the magic solution to quit dipping.  I would get on the internet every night and search out "ways to quit dipping" or "easy steps to quitting nicotine" or "how to quit chewing tobacco" thinking that somewhere in some dark corner of the internet, someone held a true secret that would give me the ability to finally quit.

I stumbled upon a website, full of folks who had walked the path I was exploring and they promised that they had the answer.  I was so consumed with getting their answer that I didn't really know what I was signing up for.  I was told that this group of folks start their day by making a promise to themselves and the group that they would not dip that day.  After all, its only a day and when broken down into pieces, you just have to make it a couple of hours at the time.  You can do anything for a couple of hours.

When I finally did pull the trigger to quit dipping I suddenly had a group of folks interacting with me, encouraging me, telling me what to expect and how to best cope with the withdrawal symptoms that I had feared for so long.  The first few days are rough...but not the whole day.  Only a few minutes at the time.  Long enough for your body to say it wants dip and then your mind to say "not today...I posted scroll".  It is hard to put into words the transformation when you take back the freedom you've given over to a tin can full of shit for so long.  But that freedom is worth every bit of discomfort from those first few days.


And the only method for quitting dipping that any of us have ever found to work is quitting cold turkey, with the help of other quitters. The method that we use here. If you found Quitting Dip, you’ve been struggling with nicotine for a long time. You have probably tried to quit. Perhaps you’ve even admitted to yourself that you are addicted to chewing tobacco. 

No matter what strategy you have employed in the past, we both know it hasn’t worked. Otherwise, you would be quit, like the rest of us. 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. 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 participate in a 100% effective method of quitting dipping is to show up here every day, follow 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. If you are ready to quit dipping, post up on the Plebe Scroll. 

Otherwise, visit the support center, or read some speeches
