    I’m a quitter! I hate dip and what it’s done to me, my life, relationships, and mental health. I’m very open to anyone who is serious about quitting and will chat/talk/text with others who feel strong about quit or those that feel they doubt their decision to quit. If you don’t have my number already and think talking to another (XdipshitZ, supporter, or even another quit group) who is in the same quit boat could be a wild card play on a cave...then message me. Remember, we’re here for a better life...but the road can be bumpy at times. Lets just quit this shit...for the last time!!! - FoodBuzz

    February 20, 2018 Quitters - sign here FoodBuzz -52- I used to stay up late and chew. Always thought going to bed earlier would be a nice change, but the can kept me from that. Made a big improvement and earlier bedtime happens more often, however still light up like a night owl at times (old secondary habits I guess) so I post instead! DWLT - Day 47 and compared to day one this is absolute heaven! Somewhat easier to beat the craves now, although after a good dinner (and a few other trigger times) it always comes to mind. Would be great to have a day where dip never crossed my mind at all. Beat down the craves and stay quit forever. NDT!' mcarlson006 - Day 58. Agree, would be great to have a day where I never thought of putting in a dip. Presuming that stage is at best sometime in the very distant future and may never happen- at least for myself. While it sucks, proud of everyone on this journey and our commitment to today. Supporters - Sign Here PMFJ - 199 - Keep it going guys! I'm no expert but I can say in my short time the craves do dissipate, the thoughts get further apart but not 100%. I was doing yard work with the wife yesterday and I mentioned to her that it would have been a perfect situation for some tobacco. I'm 51, started dipping at 19. The thoughts aren't going to go away after 200 days. Maybe when I'm 80 if I'm lucky to make it that long. But as long as we are able to manage those thoughts and craves, then who cares how long they persist! NDT!!

    Told my brother in law I quit chewing. He responds with "I can tell who's quitting at work by who's always bumming a dip off me". Thought it was funny, but big point here is "Don't be that guy!" Let's stay quit!

Enjoy another weekend dip free!! I will! NDT!! Supporters: RWM -339- show no mercy for the NB. It doesn't have a ticket on this train. STS 436: For your weekend enjoyment. This song was one of my dad's favorites. I played it at his memorial service. I know how happy he would be that I have quit using tobacco. So for you PMFJ and for you Dad, here is Mr. Arlo Guthrie.

    I'm actually keeping busy with Archery. Youngest and myself will be shooting in a State tourney on the 18th and then going to Ohio the next week to shoot in the USA Archery Indoor Nationals. So we've been shooting a few nights per week.

    If you quit between 01/20/2018 - 02/19/2018 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! Sunday February 4, 2018 Quitters - sign here: Tank27 - Day 4 - Gotta love those barn burners! I actually went to one once, it was HOT! So day 4, think i can feel the nicotine out of my system. NDT! Supporters: STS - 431: With ya tank. Hang in there brother, the worst part is about over. Let's win the day. RWM -334- Haha, an actual barn burner would be pretty hot. When the nicotine is out of your system, then your body and mind really go into high gear trying to convince you to get it back in your system. That's where anxiety, anger, irritability, fear, despair, and depression set in. It's no fun feeling like that. And those feelings can last a long while where one becomes convinced he'll never feel normal again. A dip brings back so-called 'normalcy' while it destroys our bodies and relationships. It turns everything upside down and enslaves us and makes us believe that's normal. Every quit is different and I don't presume to know your story, but just in case, be prepared for maybe the worst not being over, and maybe be prepared to deal with the worst. There are multi-discipline professionals who can help you stay quit. There are safer alternatives to dealing with the anxiety, anger, irritability, fear, and depression than going back to our old standby. That's what we mean by a scorched earth policy--all options are available; anything but dip. I'm with you. NDT!

    February 3, 2018 Quitters - sign here DWLT - 30 days and going strong - When I long term quit a few years back, I had the mistaken view that tobacco wasn't really so bad, just my inability to control how often I used it. This ultimately did me in and soon enough I had a dip in my mouth all day every day again. Not going there again and really don't want to have to go through quitting again. Stay strong and don't fall for the stupidity of going right back to the place that we've been fighting so hard to get away from. There's really nothing good back there. NDT! Supporters: RWM -333- I'm an Xdipshit and won't be a dipshit today. NDT! STS - 430: I'm All In today. ODAAT!

    Angry Quitters - Sick of Slavery February 3, 2018 Quitters - sign here: STS - 430: Change is gonna do me good. Thank you for the reflections and kind words Craig. Joining you, Bryan, Roger, Chris, and Gibb on a full day of quit. NDT! Support Quitters: CraigMac6- Day 916- All I can say STS is you are going to make it. You have the mindset needed to be successful, at least in my opinion. Many of times (im sure when we all had previous quits) it was all about being quit for 30 days or making the hall of fame or being quit for 6 months or being quit for a year even; well, im sorry to say but that outlook on quitting will never result in success. Quitting must be a lifestyle change and a life long commitment to being free and being willing to overcome any obstacle that life throws us without using our old crutch. It's about manning up and fighting for our freedom, fighting for our lives and fighting for a better life for ourselves. Heck if we are not willing to fight for a better life for ourselves, wouldn't that mean we aren't really living? Interesting! Continuing, I'm not saying the battle is done, it isn't. It isn't done for you, it isn't done for me and it isn't done for any of our brothers here. Our battle will be done when our time on earth is over and until that day we must fight like heck for our freedom. One day at a time. i'm very proud of you STS, keep on kicking the NB in the face! NDT! RWM -333- CraigMac just articulated what I've been trying to say for the last 11 months. Very nice! NDT!

I have come to embrace the change, even though the journey has been (and sometime continues to be) difficult as hell. I know my brothers on here probably feel the same way.

    Current weight : 210 MAD : 13.1 Yearly MAD: Will update.... So, I have not done as good of a job keeping up with my running here. I quit using my watch during my weekly runs because I wasn't disciplined enough to not constantly obsess over my pace. I have kept up with mileage on an app since I carry my phone to listen to music. Anyway, I stumbled into last weekend severely undertrained. I knew that I could cover the distance, it was just a matter of how quickly I could do it. The morning of the race dawned to rain. Lots and lots of rain. The forecast all week had been calling for it. How in the hell is it that the weather seems to be all over the place, but when there is something you want to do that's weather dependent, they NAIL the forecast like 23 days out. And 9 times out of 10, it's not the weather you want! So, needless to say, I was ready for the rain. Starting temps were supposed to be in the low 50's with a steady rain. Check. I got to the race with plenty of time to lube up, tape up, and find shelter near the start/finish. As I stood around in the pre-dawn darkness, listening to blue music blaring over the speakers, I ran into one of my college buddies and his wife! Super cool to see them in person instead of social media. Soon, it was time for all of us to gather up on Pascagoula St in downtown Jackson, listen to an electric guitar rendition of the national anthem, and *BOOM*, we're off to the races! WIthin the first mile, we pass the Jackson State University brass section of the marching band (the Sonic Boom of the South). They were belting out some kick ass music! We wound through the JSU campus, back through the start/finish line, then turned north. For the next few miles, everything felt fine. The course is fairly hilly, but nothing that I haven't handled before. A steady drizzle fell, but it was actually nice. I was doing a good job of staying hydrated and even took a gel around halfway. Then at mile 10, I felt it. A sudden jolt of electricity through my right calf. The same thing happened in the same calf during this marathon two years ago. It was only for a split second, but I knew what was coming. So, I immediately slowed to a walk and stayed at that pace for about 200 yards. I was able to run almost another 3/4 of a mile before it hit again. So, I walked again. Thus the way the rest of my race went. Run, pain, walk....rinse and repeat. I did a pretty good job of staving off the cramps. It never got debilitating. I alternated water and gato as much as possible. This was merely a result of being undertrained. The biggest thing was, I never lacked energy. I just couldn't "go" because of the potential for cramps. I crossed the finish line in just over 2:17. For a 10:20'ish avg pace. I actually raced at the pace I predicted I would! I though 2:15-2:30 was likely. Lessons learned. I need to train a bit more just so my legs are adjusted. I GOTTA hit some hills. Running in my flat ass circle of a neighborhood ain't cuttin' it. I still LOVE running. I lost some balance in my life when this whole journey started. I tend to go headstrong into new stuff and running was no different. Finding a good balance is critical for me. I'm almost there, but I gotta add a little more running back in. Now, I gotta schedule another race! Races this year: MS Blues Half Marathon- 1-28-18 FINISHED! 2 hours 17 minutes

    January 26, 2018 Quitters - sign here: DWLT - Day 22 and NDT! mcarlson006- Day 33. I believe Foodbuzz asked earlier what our motivations are to quit this time. I continue to think about this and struggling to find my answer. What I know is I really like to dip. I’ve been doing it since I was in high school, it has been with me for 24+ years through good times and bad and never judged nor left me. STS- I also affectionately labeled my tin as my “friend” and think about it often. I’ve overlooked the tremendous damage my friend could do to myself as well as how my friend had come between me and so much in my life, especially my family. I ignored how my friend was the same as my father’s Marlboro’s, the lasting memories I have of him as a child prior his quitting and the memories my three children likely have of me. I want to be ashamed or use this as my motivation, and while that is likely part of this journey, I’m still searching. Maybe I don’t need to have that one reason and just acknowledge that in everything I do, I’m either all in or not in at all. I’m proud that I’m all in right now, making my promise of NDT and not focusing on tomorrow till I get through today. Appreciate chance to do a bit of reflection here with others that are going through same. Great work gents and keep up the quit! Supporters: 3bd - 1,114 Fist Fight Friday!!!!! Give the nic bitch a knuckle sandwich!
