    1043 days quit x $4.50/can per every other day (divided by 2) = $2,346.75 plus, 1043/30 days per month x $80/month health insurance savings for being a non tobacco user = $2,781.33 for a grand total of $5,128.08 saved!!! (Actually Texas A&M gobbled that right up!) 3boysdad, aka 3BD - 1043

    A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. Have you ever done anything of particular merit?', St. Peter asked. 'Well, I can think of one thing,' the cowboy offered.. 'On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off or I'll kick the crap out of all of you!' St. Peter was impressed, 'When did this happen?' 'Couple of minutes ago.'

    I haven't been to this site in quite a few years and things have changed. As I recall, The Cafe used to be where most of the activity occurred, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. Anyway, tonight I realized that I have gone more than 10 years without taking a dip. My 10th anniversary was actually on September 30th, but since taking a dip never enters my mind, the 10th anniversary came and went without me noticing and a couple more months went by before I realized it. So I just want to say to everyone, you can do this. Your life will be better without it. Your health will be better without it. Your finances will be better without it. Today may be your first day, but tomorrow will be your second. The days will add up and before you know it, 10 years will have gone by. Keep fighting. The victory is worth it.

    If you quit between 11/20/2017 - 12/20/2017 this is your quit group. To join this group all you have to do is quit dipping and post Roll Call How to Post Roll Call Get the Contract to Give Up Print it out and carry it in your wallet Click Here for a room to exchange phone numbers. Accountability is key! Monday, December 4, 2017 Quitters - sign here: Supporters: RWM -272- I didn't think I could quit, but here I am 272 days later. If you got here, it wasn't by mistake. Something had to happen. Now there are no more excuses. You can make it happen. Don't wait for the right time. There will never be and ideal time to quit. Flush your can (and your stash) pronto. I always used to panic when 'committing' to each of my many previous quits. After vowing profusely and loudly, after flushing my can, I could only stand a few hours of crawling out of my skin until I broke down and rushed off to the store to stuff my lip. What I could never understand was that that the panic and craving was only temporary. I always thought it would last forever. It always felt like it would! Here, people showed me that it was possible to live through that initial extreme discomfort and each subsequent crave. Together, here, we would live with, laugh at, and spit on the misery. It goes away, and we are stronger after the storm passes. So it can be with you. NDT!

    Freedom Day, December 4 2017 Team SBAQ sign in: The Comma Club Tiger - 1776 -Monday quit? Okay. TR1960 - 1750 - Out for a week of Bow hunting. Lots of deer came by 11 to 24 yards from my various still hunt positions, just not what I wanted to arrow. Still very cool week of No Dip hunting activity. Been gone almost 3 of 4 weeks hunting or Thanksgiving vaca. Suppose I should get back to the grind stone again. World Renowned Honorary SBAQ

    Angry Quitters - Sick of Slavery December 1, 2017 Quitters - sign here: STS - 366: One year ago today, I made the best and hardest decision I ever had to make. I made the decision to give up smokeless tobacco. I had rolled the dice for the past 30 years, and knew I was going to have to pay the piper (get pieces of my face cut out or endure torturous radiation) very soon if I did not severe my relationship with tobacco. I won’t lie, this past year has been brutal. Bouts of anger, rage, sadness, depression, frustration, constant irritability, and a fuck ton of just being a miserable prick really were the hallmark of my first 100 to 150 days of severing my relationship with the beast. So Fuck yea, I have been through hell and back. 100 days was very significant because they say it takes 3 months (90+ days) to make or break a habit. Yea I think I broke the habit, but I guess I think of really breaking the habit when I have done it 10 times over. (God willing I will see 1,000 days quit). I do think that the 1 year quit mark is the most significant of all the quit anniversaries . Yes 100 days is huge, and 1,000 days is the gold standard, but the 1 year mark means that you have done every seasonal activity throughout the year without dip, and that is fucking incredible. All of us addicts have thought that there were so many of life’s activities that there was no way we could do without dip – i.e. fishing, hunting, yard work, road trips, data analysis, watching a movie, finishing a meal, playing softball, drinking beer, bowling, golf, etc. etc., etc. Then, finally we realized that was all BULLSHIT. It’s been a year and I have done all of those things without dip. Yep, the ground-up poison leaves were not necessary for anything. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fucking grateful for the support that I have received from my brothers on this site. This one year is dedicated to you gentleman and your consistent posting on the Angry Quitters roll call. I do plan on calling "The Spector" (Dr. Spector DDS) today to check in and thank him for being the one person on earth that could finally persuade me to slay the beast. Fuck tobacco – I just don’t need that shit. Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" - MLK Support Quitters: Tiger - 1773 - Couldn't be more proud for ya brother! One year is a massive win. You nailed it dude! Keep up the great work quitting and supporting. I got yer back. RWM -269- Congrats, STS. You've worked your ass off for your freedom. Gibb13 - 303 - Standing ovation for STS! You have been a huge support and inspiration for us over the last year as well. Be proud. CraigMac6- Day 853- Way to go brother! You have earned this milestone with all of your hard work and perseverance. In life, we are always rewarded when we put in the time and energy into doing something we really want to do. All of us are here because we want to quit dip and we want to live better lives. That is possible because we are willing to make any sacrifice each and every day in order to be successful; and success for us is not putting that crap in our mouths. Well brother, you have been successful in doing so for a year! That is something to be extremely proud of. As we all know, this battle is a life long battle but it does get easier as the days pass. I agree with you so many levels, especially your statement about a year being the gold standard. I'm really proud of you brother, and I'm even more happy for you because we all know (despite the struggles) that our lives are much better without the dip. Freedom at last brother! Well done. NDT!

    Chuck, Welcome, and you have definitely come to the right place. My name is Bryan (bflem). I am 36 and chewed a can of cope a day since i was 16. I have been quit for 775 days tday, a large part thanks to this site. We definitely can't do it for you, but we will support the hell out of you, offer you advice that has helped us or others on our journeys, and possibly the most important thing is we will commit to quit along side you daily. You will find your quit group in the March 18 group i believe, that is where you will post daily roll. This journey is really hard, but your life if worth it. You can win this fight, but it usually starts with small fought battles of one crave, one minute, one hour at a time. Eventually those turn into day. So, get some seeds, gum, whatever else you can think of to put in your mouth other then tobacco and get ready! Nicotine is a powerful substance that has physically re-wired the synapses in your brain to listen to it. Your body is gonna kick your ass for a little while as it re-programs. Feel free to pm me if you want a phone number for a text or call if you need it. I will not dip with you today chuck!

    Good morning! I bet you didn't know this, and it's a little known fact, (how's that for some clever redundancy?) but Thanksgiving Day holidays is one of the best times of the year to quit tobacco. Don't believe me? Give it a try and see for yourself! Don't be a chicken... er, ah, turkey I mean... you can do it! 3BD - 1048 and feelin' great!

The Posterior Tibial tendonitis is back in my right foot. I've been trying to tough it out and it actually does't bother me too much while running. It's after the run and especially the next day. Pain in the ankle and even up the leg in the calf and shin areas. I have to taken at least one day off before even thinking about running again. I'm going to do this 5K on Thursday then take some time off from running and do the therapy/strength exercises to try to recover from this BS. I really sucks getting old. More swimming and biking for the next few weeks.

    Freedom Day, November 13 2017 Team SBAQ sign in: The Comma Club Tiger - 1755 - NDT on a Monday. TR1960 - 1729 - Back from a beautiful Elk hunt in NW CO, 5 Mi SW of Bears Ears Mtn near Craig , CO. Herd migration from Bears Ears had not hit our area during our time, but one of group did get a small local Bull on day 6. I came across a 30" Mulie @ 15 yds in dark timber (no Mulie Tag) and he never knew I was there. Flippin cool experience. Used to guide Mulie hunts in SW TX for 8 yrs, so seen about 150 Mulie Bucks and this ole boy was definite top 2 or 3. Also hunting 9300 ft is a young man's game, particularly packing out Qtrs 3.5+ miles mostly up hill. Next time I'm leasing Horses or someone might need to pack me out (preferably not in Qtrs). NDT.

Support Quitters: RWM -250- Safe travels. I used to have to dip every time I was on a plane. I remember giving a smoker-buddy a hard time because he always had to go smoke before getting to the airport, and then again one last time before going through the security gate. Then, as soon as we landed, he had to RUN out the nearest exit to inhale another gasper. Dippers didn't have to deal with such inconveniences all the time. I remember the same desperation though when I badly needed a dip and couldn't get my fix. Freedom from that desperation is a major plus today.

    My rant of the day. By its very nature (and the nature of being a slave to addiction) dip made us all very selfish guys when we were using. Sure we could have been kind or generous or thoughtful back then, but that was ONLY AFTER we had satisfied our number one priority - getting our fix of the poison beast. We thought it was a good life back then, but in reality it was a shitty, selfish, wimpy way to live. A grown fucking man being made a neutered little lap dog by a tiny can of addictive poison. Well. I say FUCK THAT. Dip can go straight to hell. I am going to give my devotion to my family, my friends, my job, and my hobbies, and NOT to an expensive can of ground up leaves. How's that?

    5400+ days quit. 15 years into a quit that I never thought would ever begin. QuitSmokeless.org saved mine and many other lives. Simple: you quit, you post, you succeed. That was my path. Not everyone follows that same path, that is why I keep coming back here. Success is possible and the first step is putting down the can. I found this site 2 days after i put the can down. Sweat was running down my forehead and I was ready to cave. I typed into Yahoo, "help quitting smokeless tobacco" and my cry for help was answered with Matt Van Wycks website and life saving buoy. To those out there struggling, trying to quit....i was in your shoes..as difficult as it may seem, it is simple in execution: Dont dip. Wake up. Dont dip. Repeat for 5400 days. Good luck fellow quitters!
