Bflem, great job on the weight loss and the pace! I do not have any experience with knee surgery. Is your current pain directly related to the meniscus? I would suggest doing some strength training and try to avoid surgery but sometimes the surgery is necessary.

Accountability is key  November 16, 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- Day 22. Good to see you all made it through another day. KillShot, any luck? My first few times out after I quit it was hard to sit still. I found using fake dip helped some. Sucking on some sour candy worked too. I hope you all have a happy dip-free Friday Bam - 23. NDT killshot- 13 no luck yet. I have been using jerky chew and mints seems to be doing the trick. Kevin 17 quit days! Gum keeps me occupied! ClaimVictory- Day 5. I am absolutely sorry about not posting yesterday guys. Family emergency. I have a sibling that deals with drug issues and long story short, we were at the hospital all day. I need some digits for days like that. I will take responsibility for not having anybody's number. Anyway, if I can make it through that tobacco free then I can make it today tobacco free. IQWYT  SUPPORTERS: STS - 716: Yep, do or chew (except tobacco) whatever it takes to not put dip in your mouth. I have tried just about every possible quit-aid during my quit, and had found that TeaZa pouches are for me the absolutebest oral pacifier. I never chewed pouches when I was dipping, but these big flavorful pouches are a Godsend. I do not work for them or have any financial interest in Tea-Za. https://teazaenergy.com/store/teaza-shop/ FoodBuzz -321- Extra strength Halls (black), sun flower seeds, and gum have been my ammunition. NDT! bflem-1,129- yep, deer stand, duck blind, and fishin boat were just a few of the things i thought i could never do without dip. turns out all are far better and i get to make fun of my friends for still being slaves. that my friends, is a good feeling. stay quit gents. NDT! BRB - 2365 - For the first 50 days of my quit, I used Smokey Mountain fake chew and put cayenne pepper in it for the "burn". This worked well for overwhelming craves. I only used it about once a day by about day 40. Different stuff works for different folks. Just take some suggestions to heart and try them and see what works best for you. PMFJ - 468 - Tic tacs and gum are may main weapons, plus I like to eat. Snacks like chips, nuts, fruit, etc. Find what works for you and stick with it. Enjoy a tobacco free Friday!! NMFD!! Farley - 3886 - In the words of TR "Don't buy it, don't bum it, don't put it in your mouth" It's a great start to the weekend when your dip free. Sorry to hear about your sibling CV, way to stand strong and make it through the day.

    MILES AGAINST DIP Have not been able to run for the last week and a half. The air quality here is horrible due to the smoke from the fires up near Paradise. Such a tragedy, the whole town was destroyed and when it's all said and done the fatality count is going to be really high. Nice job bflem and stick!

Welcome Von Nanega. 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. Years ago I had quit for about 270 days, one pinch led to 1 can which led to 1-2 cans a day again. Kevin, congrats on the first week milestone. Bam - day 14. Welcome Von. This is a good group to quit with. Post every day with us. I'm not dipping today. killshot- day 4 good morning so far quit another day Von Nanega-Day 2. Don’t dip today.  Kevin Day 8 and welcome Von to the quit. Thanks Nick! Dave -day 3......Feeling better everyday.  Supporters Sign Here RWM -610- dip is not an option today. Remove that out. Then do what needs to be done to get through the day. 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!!!!! Tank - Day 82 - Not chewing is your number one priority today. If you do nothing else but accomplish this priority, your day is successful. NDT UncleBubba - 5490 - Congrats on 2 weeks Bam!! Von - stories like yours are the reason I still post after 15 years, I'm one stupid decision away from thinking about Day 1 again. PMFJ - 459 - Saying "no" with you guys again today! NMFD!! Farley - 3877 - Proud of you Von for getting back on the horse. The nic bitch is powerful and we cannot let our guard down for one second. Nov. 7th is a great day to not put any shit in our lip

Accountability is key   Tuesday November 6, 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Nick- Day 12. Yesterday I tried Baccoff, it helped a little. Something different than seeds and gum. But I had to go in a smoke shop to buy it, my old buddy was yelling at me from the shelf. I could feel the anxiety rising until I left the store. It sucks something that is so bad for us can have such a hold on us. Stay strong fellow quitters. I almost forgot, go vote today. I served 20 years in the Army to help keep this right, please exercise that right. Bam - Day 13. NDT. Nick, one thing I do occasionally is dip a cotton ball in mouthwash. It's not as bad as it sounds. Just make sure you spit and not swallow the mouthwash. Thanks for your service. Good luck killshot, way to get back on the horse. Keep up the good work Kevin, you're starting to rack up the days now Killshot - 3 rough morning I made it passed tge store though Kevin 7 day quit. Way to go killshot, quitting with Bam and Nick! Supporters: FoodBuzz -311- Fine group here! You can feel the desire to quit. Early postings preparing for the day is a great sign. Quitting with you all. Keep that crap out of your life. NDT RWM -609- PM each other and introduce yourselves. Trade methods about how you get through each crave. Glad to see you guys doing that above. Sunflower seeds and fake dip helped me immensely for the first 100 days. Not saying it'll work for you, it tasted like shit, but the point is to keep experimenting. I also didn't like that I had to purchase fake dip from the tobacco section of the store. I think that's why I quit using the stuff. Dip is not an option today. We'll figure the rest out. STS - 706: I found that a cotton ball combined with a stick of sugar-free wintergreen gum made a great quit-aid that had a "draw" very similar to dip and caused one to spit. I no longer use that. If I need a quit aid now, I use TeaZa pouches. They come in caffeinated and decaf and many flavors. Unlike Grinds coffee pouches, which seem to lose their flavor after about 20 min) Teaza pouches seem to give a nice flavor for about 8 hours, and no spitting required. Bottom line - Do WHATEVER it takes not to put tobacco in your mouth. ODAAT UncleBubba - 5489 - Congrats on 1 week Kevin!! PMFJ - 458 - NMFD!! Farley - 3876 - Going into the store was tough in the beginning but I always felt this nice little satisfaction that I was not blowing money on some nasty enslaving cancer dirt. I voted to not dip today and I'm glad ya'll did the same!
