Quitting Dip

Recommended Posts

My back story is very similar to numerous others here, so I don’t feel I need to go over it in detail.  The short version is that I made a lot of bad decisions when I was young and chewed snuff for over 30 years, before I found this place and quit dipping.  I am not saying any of this was easy because it was not, I have had my ups and my downs just like everyone else.  I am very happy and proud of my Quitting Dipping. For me the 2 most important differences between my Permanent Quit and all the previous stoppages are Accountability and recognizing and admitting I have an Addiction to nicotine.

Accountability:  While friends and family may love and support you, they most likely do not provide the true accountability you will need to Quit dipping and stay Quit.  They will support you and be proud of you and that is all very nice, but they will also forgive and accept you if you decide to break your promise to them and start dipping.   This is not true accountability; this is not what you need in order to quit dipping.  What you need is the type of Accountability that QuttingDip provides, which is unwavering, no excuses, sometimes harsh, but honest Accountability.

Addiction: My original plan was to quit chewing snuff but still smoke the occasional cigar. I truly thought this was a reasonable idea because I was addicted to snuff not cigars.  I only smoked cigars occasionally and did not really need them all the time so that should be OK right? I have friends that do this, why can’t I?   Well, after being here for only a few weeks and reading a lot of posts, researching addiction and doing a fair amount of self-reflection, I came to a different conclusion and belief.  I am addicted to nicotine and if I use it in any form I know it will eventually lead me back to using snuff.  I can not have just one, it does not work that way for me. I have been down that road before and now I know better.  For me it is just that simple and it is the reason why I quit dipping.

Thank you to QD and all who have helped me.  I am happy to be free and Quit with all of you today.

The above was written by a member of Quitting Dip. If you are looking for a  support group, all of the members here quit dipping using the same process, through the accountability offered by this website, and quitting dipping cold turkey.


You might think that there are lots of ways to quit dipping, but there's not.  You are likely to be here after hundreds of aborted mini-attempts at quitting dipping. You can't quit dipping halfway. You also can't use nicotine replacement products. No vaping. No nicotine lozenges. No nicotine gum.  Why not? Because you can't quit nicotine by using a different form of nicotine. Why do you want to extend the length of time that you experience the withdrawal symptoms of quitting dipping anyway? Get it over with. Rip the band aid off. Put that shit in the rear view mirror.

When you are in the cycle of being desperate to quit dipping, but terrified of actually quitting, everything can seem overwhelming. Quitting dip is a lot easier than you think. It is all a mind game, and we know all the ways to win. If you are ready to quit, the best way to quit dipping cold turkey is to join this site, and start posting. 

Once you are a member 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. Just throw up a post somewhere, someone is going to see it, and help you learn how to quit dipping. You can also post below with questions or comments before you sign up. 

If you 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. We want to give you help to quit dipping, but you have to help yourself first.
