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.

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.
