The second day

Posted by Smasher in Smasher's Blog, 26 March 2017 - - - - - - · 16 views

This isn't my first time through this part. It's not nice but after 72 hours it's gone for the most part. Same crap basically as any other quit during this stage. I kinda snap at small stuff and way more aggressive than normal (I'm aggressive as is but this puts me in orbit) I just gotta make sure I'm not jumping all over somebody for basically nothing. A...


DAY 61-90: Three Months Dip Free

Posted by chiporscott in Chip is Quitting While He is Ahead, 26 February 2017 - - - - - - · 40 views

Today is February 27th, 2017.
I quit dipping Copenhagen November 27th, 2016.
I've gone 3 months or 90 days without dip.
Contrary to what I've imagined this moment would be, it is another day. It is another day without dip, however, it is another day of progress. I want to celebrate today, but I'm too busy. I'm...


Healthy Respect, and Fear

Posted by Fish76 in Fish76's Blog, 07 January 2017 - - - - - - · 139 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 - - - - - - · 252 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 - - - - - - · 663 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 - - - - - - · 624 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 and lying

Posted by jstew57 in jstew57's Blog, 14 October 2014 - - - - - - · 1,114 views

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...

The Ride

Posted by Flavius Victor in Time And Again, 05 May 2014 - - - - - - · 974 views

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...

When i graduated high school, my mom asked me how long i had beed dipping? Guess moms have ways of finding that stuff out.   Started college in fall of 2004  th...

Posted by jgregg in My Quit Story, 07 October 2013 - - - - - - · 730 views

Well I've made it to day 7. The weekend was the most challenging, My monday - friday is pretty much all routine. Wake, Walk Dog, Return, Shower, Work, YMCA, Work, Home, Run, Dinner, Repeat. I figured out fairly quickly how to do that routine without chewing. Now Sat & Sun is when it got the most challenging. Working on stuff in the garage, watching fo...

Journal Therapy

I have been chronicling this journey on a private system that only I have access to see, but thought that by sharing I might be helpful to someone else. Not much to post at this point. I'm just trying to use every tool available to lick this addiction once and for all. Addiction is the key word. Understanding that my body has changed to accommodate the in...


On Quitting With A Group

Posted by Queedle in Queedle's Blog, 13 May 2013 - - - - - - · 952 views

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...
