    September 14, 2016 Today's MAD: 12.8 total Swimming MAD total: 4.5 Total Running MAD: 5012.1 miles since 1/2/2010 Weight: 206 - Change after going off the meds. A trail run and a great 6.3 run with my workout buddy, Batman. He is a 72 year old super hero. He is boosting his mileage to so he can run on a charity bid at the Boston Marathon. His dream is to run it with his son, who is a 4 time Boston finisher. Batman ran a marathon 30 years ago, so it isn't totally new to him. At 72, he pushes me everyday at every workout. I'm stronger than him with the weights but he can stretch my limits on body weight exercises. How many people do you know that can do 30 pull-ups?

    Buddy you making coming on this site fun everyday. Love your sense of humor. Sometimes I think you are my brother from another mother. There is no doubt that we fucked our brains up pretty bad by dipping for so long. Nicotine is probably the most physically addictive substance on earth mg per mg. I don't know we will ever fell 100% "normal" again, but I am hoping to get to at least 95% "normal" (whatever the hell that is) someday. I strongly suspect that it is going to take years. We will get there ODAAT. Not sure if this is how you feel, but I have just come to the conclusion that I am a tobacco addict, and that once I start with any tobacco I will be back to a 1/5 of a can of Wolf in my mouth for 15 hours a day within a month. We are different in which is more difficult for us - the oral fixation or the nicotine. For me, I still haven't broken the oral fixation (have a TeaZa in my mouth as I type this). I don't know if I am going to be like Kojak and have to have a lollypop some other pacifier forever, but as long as it is not dip I am OK with it. Yes on occasion I think of the feel that nicotine had on my body. I love your description of a neck massage. I especially miss the focusing of the brain on a certain task that nic always brought me. I guess I am getting some of that from the Wellbutrin I am taking. I was over 100 days quit and I still felt like a puzzle with at least one missing piece. Still trying to figure out if long term withdraw from nic lead to this feeling of something huge missing from my brain (and the necessity for meds for a while) or was there something missing all along and that I should have been on a med ages ago, but I chose to self medicate with nicotine. Buddy I had a dip dream last night (no lie). In the dream, I loaded up the lip. It did not take long for me to feel really bad about it. Don't want to go back to being a dipper. It may be blasphemy to say on this site, but there are some things I miss about dipping. However, now that I see life from the other side, I far prefer to be a non-dipper. There is no middle ground for this addict. I wish there was, but I cannot be an occasional dipper, hell I am never gonna smoke a cigar again. I really appreciate you sharing. I always got your back. NDT!

    after a few hundred days i've noticed that cravings are different. i was just looking back at early posts and remembering how hard i fiended just to have a wad in my lip, the physical feeling of having my lip bulged out was so hard to get over. i was sitting in my living room last night and started to really want a dip, i had a can of the hooch herbal snuff i ordered a month back or so with a pinch or two left so i grabbed one up, but i was totally unsatisfied. i no longer need the physical feeling of that plug in my mouth. now, when i crave dip, what i crave is the feeling of the nicotine taking effect; those big, soft, warm, fuzzy & comforting hands pressing down on the back of my neck and giving off that special kind of numbness that washes everything away. being goofy and light-hearted is one way i deal with serious things (i'm also not a very serious person), and it's worked pretty well with quitting chew so far. but i realize that i did this for over 14 years, and the consequenses from it are really saddening and i have to step back and take to look at it from a different angle sometimes. we're all sensitive people, so much to give (Marvin Gaye), and it's great that we can stick together, even if it is through cyberspace, to help pick each other up when reality gets tough. you're all very much appreciated, let's keep it quit fellas!

    Use this space to introduce yourself, chat about quit techniques, rage about craves, and talk about life in general. I'll get it started. Was a chewer and dipper for over 35 years. Total addict. Last seven or so years I had a fifth of a can of Timber Wolf in my mouth for 15 hours a day every day. I dipped everywhere and felt I could not enjoy anything in life if I was not dipping. That was my pathetic addicted thinking and I could not have been more wrong. Dip makes nothing better. It's just a wad of poison in your mouth. How on earth could I have thought that that would make anything better or more enjoyable. Quitting has been the hardest thing I have ever done, and has also been the best thing that I have ever done. I am free from the slavery to that expensive can of carcinogens one day at a time.

    September 16, 2017 Headed back to work on Monday following three well needed weeks of time off. Spent most of it helping my best friend finish out the commercial troll season for Coho Salmon. Made almost 2K during that time, so that is an added bonus. I decided to renew my pool/gym membership, so hopefully I'll be able to start using wellness time and slowly start putting some mileage back on and intermixing some runs into some floor climbing and possibly some swimming (I am not a water person so this may be interesting) in order to get ready for rut hunting and to start the beginning of the training for next May and August (POW marathon and Skinny Raven 49K). Miles Against Dip: 0 Total M.A.D: 2922.5

    July HOF - AUGGIE STYLE September 15, 2017 Quitters - Sign Here: Aug24- 153 - Driving a car without the ball and chain of dip and spitter is so nice,,,,free at last...free at last,,,,,thank God I'm free at last! Support: STS - 289: Fucking-A Auggie. There were times when I would rent a car on business and pullover on the side of the road just outside the airport and pickup a used cup for a spitter during the times I forgot to get one at their airport before I picked up the car. I truly thought I could not drive any distance without a dip in my mouth. What a gross fool I was. NDT! RWM -192- Smarter than buying a full bottle only to pour it out right after purchase. Spitting out the window and having it splat all over the is pretty gross too. Ah Freedom from all that...NDT!

    You brofo's are speaking my language. All of that up there that y'all just wrote? Feels...right in the feels. You guys get it. There's not a damn thing wrong with admitting you miss certain things about dipping. Hell, if we are honest, all of us do. That's the great thing about this site. It's a place to commiserate with other sick bastards about this shitty addiction. Rock on brofo's.

    The Name of Your Quit Group Here Saturday, August 26, 2017 Quitters - sign here: Supporters: RWM -172- I want to thank you for toughening it out each and every day and not dipping. For me, sometimes I felt like I couldn't live for another minute unless I flew down to the store to pick up a can and stuff my face. All dipping was was momentary relief. Didn't change anything except for how I felt momentarily although I knew I was running away and killing myself while issues were building up. Today it's still real tough facing those issues without dip, but I want the emotional slavery to dip stopped--but it takes time. One dip blows the whole process up. NDT!

Been painful for a week. Went for a run this morning and I ended up wiping out two more times. Now my elbow, knee, and toe are fooked. I am a hot mess! My pace per mile and my legs have been feeling really good though. I think my plant based diet has something to do with it?? Looks like our house sale is officially a done deal. We have to move out before I go to Oregon. Its going to be a crazy few weeks. Just wanted to check in. Hope ya'll are doing well. Cheers! Mohican 100 Race Report
