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.

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!!

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!

Accountability is key  Thursday November 1st. 2018  Quitters Sign Here: Bam - day 8. Not dipping today. I'm ready for what today brings me. Yesterday was a bit harder than day 6 which I wasn't expecting. But today I'm ready for whatever the nic bitch throws at me, I'm going to fight back tooth and nail. I will NOT be putting that shit in my mouth today. Nick- day 7. One whole week with no dip and I will not dip today. Kevin - day 2 it was a frustrating day yesterday but ready to tackle today!  SUPPORTERS:  RWM -604- the main goal is no dip today. aug4-90- I am here to support all of you in this journey. But I will go ahead and say that Kevin was originally with us in the November group and I am very glad to see him back in another quit group so soon. So you may have caved but you have the will and desire to go right back after this quit. Everyone can do this. Post every day, find other things to occupy your mouth - gum seeds fake chew whatever. Realize you are not going to be normal for a bit. Warn your loved ones. Just decide you can do it and do it.  FoodBuzz -306- There will be days where fog turns and you will feel proud and satisfaction for where you’ve come. Keep pushing, it’s not easy but very worth it. NDT quit with you all here! PMFJ - 453 - Keep that shit outta your face!! NMFD!! STS - 701: Dip sucks, so I am not going to do any. Tiger - 2107 - We cave because we are scared. Scared that we can’t do it. Scared that we will lose something. Scared that shit will be different. Scared that we can’t do it without dip. Scared of what normal looks like without dip. The reality is, we can do it. All of it. Without that horseshit. Why the hell do you want to let something like that control you? I mean REALLY CONTROL you. Got you by the MAN NUGGETS. Fuck that. FUUUCK that. Dip ain’t worth it. You and I are way stronger that’s that shit. I remember I always used to lie to myself and say “Man, I don’t want to quit. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE dipping.” Lie. Bullshit lie. I knew I wanted to quit, I just didn’t have the guts to do it. Once I found this place and you guys, I knew it was just a matter of time. I love the saying, once you’ve seen this place, you can’t “unsee” it. It’s the truth. Once you see quitters loving being quit...it’s over. NMFDT with you badasses. Bazza 2559 - 7 years ago I made one of the smartest decisions of my life, I quit dipping. It was tough at first, but having the support of my fellow quitters, making a commitment every day not to cave, and my competitiveness not to be the one to cave saw me through. Over the first couple of months it was a rollercoaster ride of good and bad days. You just have to tough it out one day at a time. Now, I don't worry about oral cancer, teeth falling out, inflamed gums, or having to hide from my family when the cravings hit. My kids will grow up never knowing about my addiction and will have less chance of becoming addict's themselves. You've got this. You can do it! The only thing that is important today is not to dip!! Farley - 3871- Hell yeah! It's all true, the nic bitch was deceiving when it was dominating our lives. Foolishly I was looking ahead when I quit in early spring and the one thing I was worried about was "how am I going to mow the lawn without a dip?!" well, guess what, mowing the lawn with sunflower seeds and listening to baseball on the headphones was better then could be expected. There are many hurdles like this that you will conquer but no reason to look ahead. Just tackle the day. No reason to worry about tomorrow. These guys in here are correct, life is way better not being a slave to some nasty shit

I was going slow because I was trying to follow someones gpx file of a route through the presidio but it was a very wonky route and I was staring at the map on my damn watch a lot of the time trying to figure it out. Then about mile 5 my freaking calf knotted up as I was climbing up a hill and it was painful. Seemed to work itself out and the last mile and a half it felt decent. Kind of strained right now. Hopefully better by the weekend. Have a great Friday everyone! Cheers!

    Tuesday October 30 2018  New Quitters sign Here Aug4 - 88 - approaching single digits on countdown to HOF. Been thinking about this journey and the ups and downs experienced. Again am thankful to the supporters and other quitters during the quit. Really wish that others in the original group were still quitting odaat with us. Hopefully Kevin and wiser show up in another group soon Tank - Day 74 - Life is much easier and better without dip. NDT    Supporters FoodBuzz -304- Very true Aug, I wish they were still here too. It takes a lot to change...really it takes a lot to just try. Everyone has their time, it depends on if their heart is soft enough to admit defeat to the addiction and their mind over body is strong enough to rise from the ashes of defeat and become that new changed person they desire to be...that person that is unattainable while stuck in the plexiglass prison of nicotine. Hopefully their time comes. STS - 699: You are doing great Aug4. Really good to see you posting support as well. RWM -602- this is my second time here. First time I was totally unaware and unprepared for the psychological torture and the level of commitment needed to beat this addiction back. After I caved, I doubled down on my dipping, thinking it was better than quitting and the one of the things I had going for myself....for almost 7 more years. When I finally regained the spirit to quit, I knew that spirit was going to require a shit load of daily maintenance. Even now, some days I feel beaten down. But I keep getting back up. NDT. Farley - 3869 - It only happens when you are truly ready to stop being a slave to the can. Quitting was by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my life and deep down I was so ready for it to be over but damn, not easy at all. We owe so much to this website for helping guide and support our quits along with giving us the winning formula of taking it one day at a time. You guys are doing great, please remain vigilant, especially in high stress times or if there is alcohol involved, no reason to throw away all your hard work!

Its gets better, physical craves go away, your mind will send you ideas about when it would be good to have one...those go away if you observe them, and then then let them go. UncleBubba - 5482 - One day at a time, sometimes you may have to look at it one hour at a time. But all craves will pass, just need to fight through them Farley - 3869 - Exactly what UncleBubba said, this crave shall pass, tackle them one at a time. In the meantime spike your blood pressure with some sodium from a bag or two of sunflower seeds or whatever it takes to keep you occupied. They taste way better than the nic bitch, thats for damn sure. Great work in here.

Tam 50K: Ended up with about 10.5 miles today with Jess at the preserve https://www.strava.com/activities/1933062091 not sure if my Garmin adds distance in the thick canopy, would think it would be the opposite. either way I will take the 10.5! Ended up with 56 miles this week. time to taper down, race in two weeks. definitely nervous about making the 8.5 hour cutoff at mt. tam. 6,800 feet of elevation gain is going to be a grind but looking forward to it.

    If you quit between 10/25/2018 - 11/21/2018 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. (updated!) 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 Quitters Sign Here: Nick- day 2 for me. It’s not easy but that’s ok, not giving up. Many years ago, like 2004, I joined this site. I made it 240 days, all it took was one pinch to be back where I was. Well enough is enough, I’m tired of ruining my health, spending hard earned money on dip, having that panic feeling when I forget my can, missing kisses from my wife due to a mouth full of the stuff, not being able to taste some goodie she made. And the list of reasons to stop go on and on.  Bam - Day 3. Not chewing today. I don't care how tough this gets. I'm tougher.    Supporters Sign Here: FoodBuzz -301- Morning quitters! There’s much more to life than following the can to a C-store at midnight so you can fill a spit cup. Here’s to finding the better parts of life! Welcome Nick, let’s make this the quit that counts! NDT! RWM -599- I was here in 2010 and got to the point where I thought I no longer needed to post roll call or receive support. I was selfish and thought I knew it all. It wasn't long after that where I felt something like a NEED to take one pinch. Like every similar story, I was back to being an all day non-stop dipper immediately. So welcome back (or welcome first timers if you're reading this because you think it's time to quit and are ready to commit to not dipping today). The site has gone through many changes since 2004 and 2010, but I am convinced that the basic formula set forth here does provide a path to never having to take a dip again (one day at a time, of course). It's us who veered off the path. There is no real need to take one pinch. There are a million+ other options, but our addictions cause us to see only one. I promise no dip today.
