Quitting Dip

Recommended Posts

Before I quit dipping I was sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself. I had just put in my last pinch and didn’t feel like going to the store to buy another can. I had a bag of [chaw brand redacted*] from an attempt to switch it up, but it still wasn’t [dip brand redacted*]. The longest I had gone without dip was in Basic training, and that was merely 4 months. Since then I had eaten a can a day for the subsequent 4 years.

I searched “how to quit dip” it took me to reddit.com and had a link to QuittingDip.com.  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw dudes that were years into quitting. I just dove in. To be successful at quitting dipping, you have to want to be quit. Nobody can do it for you. Recognize yourself for the addict you are and take control back, from before you were a slave. It is a complete internal battle for the person YOU want to be. Good news for us is QD has this shit mapped out on how to quit dipping forever.  Follow the timeline, participate in your quit with the brotherhood and accountability.

If you are reading this and on the fence about quitting dipping, chances are you feel worthless like I did at day 0. So, for the first time in your life just fucking commit to something. Post your promise every morning, and deal with the nicotine withdrawal for 3-4 days. The next stage of quitting is the fog, but you won’t be alone. We’ve all done this.

At some point you will be writing about how you did it, just like me. Every member here has seen a new quitter like me and you making their first step into a new lifestyle, and they are ready for your excuses and your hesitation. At QD we eat your excuses and shit them back out at you. There is a ton of quit knowledge on this site… dig in it, bury yourself head to toe because it is your armor against your addiction. We will show you the path and can guide you along, but it will be your feet against the ground. Change your fucking life by quitting dip. Quit for yourself. To the new members at QD… stay the course. To the old members thank you for your patience with me. I am honored to be at this stage in my quit.

 

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.

THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT DIPPING IS TO QUIT 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.
