Quitting Dip

Recommended Posts

All of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey. The following was written recently by a member of Quitting Dip.

Before I committed to quitting dip, I wasn't planning on really participating on this forum. I just was trying to read the boards so I could figure out what the fuck is wrong with my brain. I was just tired. Tired of making every excuse in the book. Tired of being drunk and walking to a 7-11 just to find they don't have my brand. Has an uber driver ever told you that YOU are the loser? Cause mine did after the third 7-11 we had checked cause Copenhagen mint was hard to find. Like that Uber driver has their shit together....I think not. One star you fucking hypocrite. Anyway I digress. What I'm really trying to get at is I'm here to quit dipping and to quit dipping forever. 


An hour per dip was par for me, which means, I dipped nearly every minute of the day sans eating, sleeping, and showering. Before I quit chewing tobacco I was “lucky” enough to be able to dip at work, cause I mainly worked from home. I go into an office for like 4 hours a day. Taking a break half way for a 20 min dip and also needing one to take dump. As soon as I got in my car to go home until bed, constantly. If you're wondering how to stay single, that's your answer. 


Once you quit dipping, each day free from that fucking poison is better than the previous.  Triggers come early in a quit, but each time you internally say "fuck you" you're winning,  The premise here is simple, but genius at the same time.  Wake up, piss, post your promise not to use.  Make it 24 hours, keep that cat shit out of your lip, repeat.  Anyone with a set of marbles can make it 24 hours.  Soon days start stacking into months, months into years ... you'll be quit.  Just own your shit.  By that I mean embrace what this site has to offer, and be a man of integrity and honor your word ... follow through. 


You're surrounded here by addicts to nicotine, and we've all got stories just like you.  One major difference right now is that across the board, all of us despise that fucking plant ... what it does to your health, your wallet, your connections with family and friends.  Slowly killing you, all the while you get to pay for it.  Heaven is the freedom you can expect when quit dipping.  You have no idea .. but you will.  Flip that switch.  Fuck nicotine.

 

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.

I remember how free I felt once I knew all that nicotine poison was out of my system.  How liberating it is to choose what enters my body without having my addiction have a say so.  NRT keeps nicotine in your system.  Cold turkey is the only way to be quit.

When I first stopped dipping, I felt like I gave up an old friend.  I quickly learned that there was nothing beneficial with dip, tobacco, nicotine, smoking, vaping, or pipe smoking.  I learned to hate it and that realization put me on the path to quit.
