Accountability is key! Quitters - sign here: mcarlson006- Day 29- long morning already with a 2+ hour commute to start my travels this week. Staying committed. Bonanza - Two Weeks in the books. Weekend was hard - not so much for the nicotine but for something to do. No dip then and no dip today! DWLT - Day 18 and NDT! Supporters: RWM -321- don't need to stuff the face with cancerous poison. STS - 418 - Congrats on two weeks today Bonanza. Used to dip when I was bored just to pass the time away. But hell I used to dip when I wasn't bored. In fact, I used to dip all the time, as I was totally addicted to the shit and a total slave to it. I think that was the worst part about being addicted to dip, is that you have to dip even when you don't want one - like when you're sick or when your gums hurt so bad that the dip stings, but gut through the pain just to feed the beast. I am so fucking done with that. Yea I'm still an addict, but I am sure as hell not using. One day at a a time. PMFJ - 169 - I'm joined up with you in the quit! Stick with it, it's well worth it! NDT!

    PMFJ's Quit Group Monday, January 22, 2018 Quitters - sign here: PMFJ - 169 - Wow RWM, that's crazy and kind of disgusting. I don't remember seeing any of my teachers using tobacco, it was mostly family. My dad, uncles, and grandfather were smokers. Marlboros, Camels, my grandpa always had the butt end of a cigar stuck on his lip. My mom's dad was a dipper but I didn't know until years later after he died. So you would have thought that I would be a smoker. I remember one time as kid of about 11-12 years old picking up one of my dad's burning butts off the lawn after he had finished mowing. He used to just throw them anywhere and everywhere. It was still smoking, so I put it in my mouth and sucked some in. I started coughing and choking and I looked up and saw one of the neighbors from up the street looking at me over the fence in the alley. I knew then that I wasn't going to smoke and I was afraid that the neighbor would tell on me even though I knew my dad didn't really know the guy. The dip started stupidly. Some time late in high school, somebody got some Red Man and we tried it and it was disgusting. I went on a fishing trip with a friend and we had a pouch, spitting all over the canoe. Later, it changed from Red Man to Beech Nut Wintergreen because of the flavor. I remember one night going to a football game, sitting with one of my friends with our feet dangling over the track, spitting Beech Nut onto it. At the end of the game, there was a disgusting pool of spit on the track. We were the visiting team so we didn't care. So dumb! I was an athlete back then too, soccer was in my blood. Our coach caught us once during an out of state tournament and wouldn't put us in the games. I wish I would have learned my lesson then. NDT!! Supporters:

    PMFJ's Quit Group Friday, January 19, 2018 Quitters - sign here: PMFJ -166 - Damn STS, way to break it down to the ground! I have to say though, that I usually can tell when she's going to come around. Lately it's been after dinner. on the weekends, it's been while doing projects around the house. That's why I have my tic tacs and gum at the ready. Thanks guys, I'm quit with you again today! NDT!! PMFJ again- I hear you guys. I pretty much had a fatty in my face all the time. If I wasn't eating, drinking (sometimes even while drinking), sleeping, or enjoying my wife's company, which was rare according to her, I was dipping. The car, shower, shitter, my classroom when students were out (I dipped during lunch and ate during class time), prepping meals, watching TV, working around the house, grading papers, phone calls, etc., etc. How stupid!! Supporters: RWM -318- Anything that requires sustained concentration gives me a huge crave. Especially when I want to quit right in the middle of it. I think to myself "I can't do this without a dip." After I get used to doing it without dip, those thoughts start to go away. I used not be able to drive any longer than 2 minutes without a dip. Now I do it all the time without thinking about it. STS 415: Yea meals used to kill me especially dinner. In the early days of my quit, I would go brush my teeth right after I ate, because it seemed that I craved a dip less if the food taste in my mouth was replaced by the toothpaste taste. Hey you can call me a wimp, but I still use Teaza pouches daily. I know I kinda have traded one habit for another, but tea is not the most addictive substance on earth mg per mg (nic is) and I have not heard of any cases of tea causing squamous cell carcinomas. Hey I always said that I would do WHATEVER it took not to dip. And I have not dipped in 415 days. I am with you guys, it's just time to be done with that shit forever (one day at a time of course).

Accountability is key! Quitters - sign here: FoodBuzz -20- Morning all!! NDT! mcarlson006- Day 26. I'm no longer considered a "Newbie"- was wondering when that would change. Supporters: STS - There are some tough ass quitters in this group. Remember weekend rules apply. There is no caving on a weekend. Hopefully you all (or yall, as we see here in Carolina) have each other's phone numbers so that you can text or call a quit bro or they can contact you if shit gets really bad. Craves come and craves go - freedom lasts a lifetime. NDT ODAAT TGIQ (STS is an A-Hole and a SOB for using so many acronyms) PMFJ - 166 - Wow, this is a big group compared to what I'm used to. I hope it stays that way! I totally agree with STS, the weekends can be tricky. I tend not to check in on weekends because I'm not sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours. I use it only if I need to. I did get a few phone numbers but I have never felt the need to use them, I guess I'm lucky that way. Just keep your guard up, be ready to handle the craves. Keep it up gents! NDT! And definitely not tomorrow!

Hang in there everyone, tough but worth it! Supporters: RWM -317- No dip today. No matter what STS - 414: I said I was going to post this yesterday, but never did. Tobacco is not our friend. It is not anyone's friend , as it has the chemical ability to change our natural human drives and priorities. A normal human should and will crave food, water, sleep, sex, love, affection as these are primal instincts necessary for survival. Nicotine (a poison the tobacco plant uses to keep from being eaten by insects) fucked up our brain's normal sense of basic survival priorities so that getting our fix was the #1 desire/craving. Nic was our brain's one true need, and be damned all the normal needs and desires that would bring a normal person pleasure/joy until getting that fix was satisfied. How fucked up is that, when we would rather put ground up leaves in our mouth's than have a nice meal or have sex? TGIQ!! PMFJ - 165 - Wow STS! Who knew? Now I know why I'm gaining weight. Better than a hole in my cheek I guess. NDT!!
