    Here is a link to a letter Jenny Kern wrote to Matt, the original founder of this website explaining a bit more of Tom's diagnosis. http://www.quitsmokeless.org/articles/jennykern.php

    Someone message me asking about the Tom & Jenny Kern story. Below is a link, scroll down to the bottom of the page to start from the beginning. In short it's a blog about the life of Tom and Jenny Kern and their kids after Tom was diagnosed with cancer from years of dipping. It details the treatments and the impact this had on their family. http://caringbridgeclassic.org/mn/tomkern/history.htm

Accountability is key  November 14, 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- Day 20, still eating seeds like there's no tomorrow, gained another 1.5 pounds this week, but most importantly dip free and I'm not dipping today Bam - day 21. Congrats on 20 days Nick. I really appreciate that every time I jump on here in the morning you have already posted the new days roll call. Your work hasn't gone unnoticed. Congrats on 2 weeks yesterday Kevin. And congrats to the rest of you for continuing this fight. NDT. Killshot. Day 11 with all of you SUPPORTERS: FoodBuzz -319- Morning Repeat Offenders! Another fine day to quit. Constantly hitting miles stones in here. Welcome CV, nice 3 weeks Bam. I still hit the seeds from time to time, mainly just gum now. Nice to hear my daughter say I’m always chewing gum rather than something else. STS - 714: Congrats on 20 days Nick and on 3 weeks Bam. Killshoit in double digits and Kevin starting his third week. CV you are in the middle of the super suck but some of the fog should be lifting real soon. Hang in there. Let's win the day fellas. Foot firmly on the nic bitch's throat, and a "can win" attitude. NMFDT ODAAT RWM -617- do not give yourself an out. No excuses. Burn all bridges back to dip. We adopt a scorched earth policy. Dip is not an option Tiger - 2121 - Big props to all the Repeat Offenders. Nick, I too gained weight like a mofo when I first quit. I was willing to put on a few extra lbs to maintain my quit status. I knew that they were just temporary lbs anyway. The great news is, I used my quit as motivation to make other healthy choices in my life. I started running about a year into my quit and haven't stopped. You all can use your quits to do the same at some point. But for now, just focus on the quit.... UncleBubba - 5497

Accountability is key  November 13, 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- 19 days without wondering what excuse am I going to use to go to the store to get a resupply. I dipped at home and around my wife but I always hated buying it when she was with me. I should have seen that as a hint I shouldn’t have been dipping in the first place, but nicotine kept me thinking it was ok. Yesterday I found another site, killthecan.org. It has some pretty good reading about what our bodies are going through and what to expect in the coming weeks and months. Welcome to the group claim victory, no caving allowed Bam - Day 20. Welcome Claim Victory. This is a good quit group, we don't let each other down here. I'm having some whacked out dreams. Last night stuck out. I was back in highschool taking this little piece of trim to a dance but the nic bitch was a super villian and if I chewed she wouldn't go with me. I had to spend the night fighting her off. Weird. Killshot day 10 quit today again with all of you ClaimVictory- Day 2.. struggling on the mental front of this.. 4 hours of listening to presentations and then I don't know what I'm going to do with myself. Supporters: STS - 713: Lots of good stuff going on. Welcome ClaimV!! Let's all keep the shit out of our mouths today. NMFDT! bflem-1,126- alright gents, ya'll are all in the middle of varying levels of suck. it's real and it aint goin anywhere any time soon. you/we poisoned our bodies for a long time. our bodies deserve to kick our ass while we detox. swap some digits for support. pm me if you want mine. lets stay quit today. ndt! RWM -616- day 1 you decide to make a jailbreak and run for the wall. Days 2 through ? are spent climbing the wall. It is a struggle. Plus, there are forces trying to force you back down. You don't know if you can handle the other side, but you can't stay in that cell another day. Once you get to the top of the wall, you have to climb back down. There are some goofy people urging you on, and many are throwing shit. Meanwhile, the Big Voice beckons you back to safety and comfort and the old routine which you've grown to love and hate. NDT. Bubba - 5496 - Congrats on 20 days Bam! ClainVictory - don't look ahead, one day, one hour, one minute at a time. They all add up. Look and read around the site, lot's of inspiration around here. Read the Tom & Jenny Kern story.

Has anyone tried CBD oil to get through craves/ jitters? Have a great quit Monday Repeat Offenders Bam - day 19. Hey nic bitch, today I'm kicking ass and drinking beer and I'm all out of beer. Kevin day 13 quit. Supporters: STS - 712: When I was in 6th grade Walt Garrison came on my TV (well not my TV, it was actually the family TV in the living room - you know the one in the big wooden console - but i digress) to pitch Skoal to me. "Just a pinch between the cheek and gum" he said. It was the coolest damn thing I had ever seen. I swear even at 12 years old that I was gonna be a dipper. Somehow ole Walt forgot to fucking mention how God damn addictive the shit he was peddling to kids was. He also didn't tell me that his product would later put me on a first name basis with an oral surgeon. So I have a thought. I am hoping you guys will collectively help me give the middle finger to big tobacco and UST specifically. And a big FU to Walt Garrison and the horse or bull he rode in on. Thank you for allowing me to share my story on your page gents. Let's all win the day today by doing whatever it takes to not put that shit in our mouths. NDT ODAAT Aug4-101days- keep up the quit guys. I promise to quit with you all today. Bubba - 5495

The last couple days I’ve been in a lot of situations where I would normally have dipped. I came to the realization that most of my waking hours I dipped. It really is nice to not have that ball and chain holding me down. Happy Veterans Day to the vets of the group, stay dipless today Bam - Day 18. I got through a dinner/evening with my sister in law yesterday without a chew. If I can do that I can do anything. NDT Killshot - day 8 free again today and happy Veterans Day Supporters: FoodBuzz -316- Nice week Killshot. NDT! I’m quitting all day today. 12 hours traveling and in airports today and doing it with out dip...although it probably is easier that a dipless dinner with my in laws.

I hear ya Nick, I used to have that shit in my mouth just about every waking hour. It never gave me a break - it always had to be number one in my life. Well no fucking more.

Sorry to hear you caved after a 5 year quit. Let that serve as a reminder to all of us that we always need to stay alert and can NEVER put that stuff in our lip again.

STS - 707: Welcome back Von. Yes your situation is a great reminder to everyone to stay focused no matter how long you have been quit. There is also the reminder to get together with your quit brothers and choose your own name for your quit group before others around here name it for you. FoodBuzz -312- Welcome Von, good choice kicking that shit to the curb. Kevin hitting a week, Bam hitting 2, lots of no bullshit on this quit attitude...it's a recipe for success! About the name...come on STS you know we have fun picking the name we can't give that up lol. The Banana Hammocks have warmly embraced their name hahahahaha!!!!!
