DAY 51-60: Two Months Dip Free

Posted by chiporscott in Chip is Quitting While He is Ahead, 27 January 2017 - - - - - - · 40 views

I quit dip on November 27th, 2016.
 
Today is January 27th, 2017.
 
I've been dip free for 60 days, or two months.
 
 
I honestly can't believe this one, but it is true. I haven't had a dip in 2 months. I feel better than ever. I've replaced my nicotine high fix with daily exercise, and I couldn't be more happy about it. It is what I f...

Healthy Respect, and Fear

Posted by Fish76 in Fish76's Blog, 07 January 2017 - - - - - - · 81 views

Funny story, I had a mini freak-out the other night.  But I stayed strong though the ordeal, and only got a little panicked, but for good reason. I guess I need to mention two things (maybe 3) before telling the story, so I'll just start with those...
 
1) If you've read my other blog entries, you know I'm the kind of dipper that's one pinch awa...

Entry #4 / Quit Day 12

Posted by sundance71 in sundance71's Blog, 15 July 2016 - - - - - - · 206 views

When I resolved to begin this quit, I also resolved to go to an ENT (ear-nose-throat) doctor to get checked out asap.  As long as I was dipping, I would never do this, of course, because it would be like going to a whorehouse right before going to church: hypocritical.  On around Day 6 of this quit, a node under my chin right where I used to pla...

So now what?

Posted by hound in hound's Blog, 12 May 2015 - - - - - - · 604 views

So I almost got 5 months, dip free now. Bought my 100 day coin, very nice, heavy metal not cheap plastic. thanks dave!
I really did not expect to make it this long, to be honest with you. I have had some tough times and some real outside pressures to cave, but I didn't. Because I knew nothing would change from just having a dip, the problem is still there...

Day 2

Posted by BamaBo in How I Quit, 09 December 2014 - - - - - - · 557 views

So I had my first nic fit tonight.  I was tired and working and I realized I was jonesing for a dip.  I shook my head and didn't do it.  This is going to suck, but I am determined to succeed.  The nic fit didn't last very long.  I'll try and remember to time them going forward.  I don't think they last very long.

dipping.lying

I am 57 years old and have been dipping snuff for about  35 years.  The dipping part is bad enough but the worst part about it was the lies that I told my wife.  I would contantly tell her that I was quit but she always found the evidence.  I always promised her I would quit but I never did.  I hope this last time hasn't pushed he...

March 7, 2014 I had just gotten off the phone with a co-worker of mine. He and I had been trying to have lunch together for about a month but it seemed the stars just weren't lining up right; today was different. After agreeing on the spot, we hug up and I finished up on a few things before heading outside to get on the bike. The restaurant was about...

I can feel the inside of my throat.  My body aches.  And I feel anxiety, almost as if the source of the anxiety is in my blood.  My entire body sort of tingles in an annoying, uncomfortable way.  I'm either dying of some random disease, or this is my body throwing a temper tantrum because I'm not chewing anymore.  I think it's the...
