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

We all were totally irrational about 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.
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 works though 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 without dip.  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.


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.
