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.

Yes the physical withdrawal from quitting dip is real, but it will pass. The first few days are tough, but don’t wallow in it. It isn’t fatal.  Since the missing oral fixation is something that's easy to fix, get something else in your mouth. Fake chew can help. I myself like Grinds coffee pouches. Bubble gum, sunflower seeds, hard candy, any number of things can help with this. After the first 5 days, it's all in your head, and It gets better when you decide it's better. 

That's why we talk about being quit.  It's a state of mind, brother.  You are free from nicotine.  It doesn't own you anymore.  You need to quit dipping cold turkey, like a fucking boss. Don't think about dip.  At all.  Crush little craves in your mind like the ugly cockroaches they are.  Smile when those craves crunch under the boot of your quit. Don't hope it gets better...be better.

Nobody here will ever say that quitting is easy, but it doesn't have to be as hard as "pure hell". Get quit. When you find yourself feeling like a pussy, slam that fucking door. Think about your quit. Think about freedom. When you find yourself talking like a pussy, slam that fucking door. Talk about quit. Talk like a quitter. Talk the talk until you walk the walk. Spend more time thinking about quitting dipping. Tie yourself to this place. Those that do are guaranteed success. Those that don't, well... sometimes they get pure hell.

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.
