New to the site here. On day 3 of quitting.  I'm done, but damn this is tough.  I keep telling myself it will get easier after 4 or 5 days.  20 year+ dipper and at the end I was chewing a can a day, plus 12 or more pieces of nicotine gum.  Ridiculous.  I'm breaking out of this jail for good!!!

Welcome and I hope you're still going strong with your quit.  If you haven't already, your next step is to join the latest quit group.

Thanks KA, I haven't been very active either, but from my past experiences and memories I think this site can still be a rock for people trying to get out of the rip tide.  We just have to keep posting and let would-be quitters know we've been there, and we're here for them.  This site really helped me in the beginning when I didn't know how to cope 5 minutes after dinner without a chew.  Now it's a distant memory.  A way distant memory.  Now I'd like to help others get there too... if I can avoid the political drama temptation along the way that is!

Hello old friends out there.  Just wanted to say "hi".  I've been quit twice now.  The last time was over two years ago.  When I wanted to finally let it go it was easy - I just walked away, and I wasn't even posting here at the time.  We were sorta alienated at the time actually.  But I do remember how important this site was when I was initially fed up with being addicted to tobacco.  I hope this site still inspires people to leave the things they hate behind.
 
Stay quit,

Hey, 3boysdad! There's a name from the past. Sorry to hear you slipped up, but glad you're back and over 2 years quit. I quit Oct. 1, 2006, and I'm over 3800 days now. Hard to believe. Haven't been real active here for a few years, though I've recently began poking my head back in to say hi. I hope you and the family are doing well.

It's been a week and I'm starting to feel like Chris Pratt in Passengers.  Only 90 years to go.  We'll get it worked out.

 

After all,

 

Jesus is coming soon!

Hey everybody! I'm 16 years clean! Just wanted to stop in and say everyday of my life is better without skoal in my lip. I slayed the nicodemon, and now tobacco free is my way of life. I dipped for 25 years, and it was a tough two year battle for me before I finally felt free of the control of the can. Never give up. You can do this, your life, your lip, your family and friends are worth it. Keep posting, support each other in your quit groups, and keep quitting!

Congrats, Woogie! I agree 100%. 10+ years clean for me. Life is much better without the worm dirt!

Don't let roll call intimidate you. I was a drooling internet moron when I first logged on here. I didn't know a dang thing about posting on the interwebs. Now, I'm still a drooling moron, but I can post roll. If I can do it, there is hope for any and everyone. If you need/want help in learning how to post roll or just navigate the site, give anyone on the 'staff' or any 'moderator' a shout. We will be glad to help you. Quitting is hard enough as it is.

That's absolutely right. Don't worry about messing anything up. You won't break anything. This ain't Pottery Barn.

 

KA has forgotten the whole "Truckerick incident"...
That was ugly. Took weeks to get the smell out, and you notice there are still no cats around.

 

My therapist tells me I have blocked out most of my memories of Truckerick. Says it's the mind's defense mechanism against traumatic incidents.

 

I have a vague memory of this...can someone throw the link to this up here so we can all 'member?

I recently found this site, it's nice to know, after 30 plus years of Copenhagen addiction, there's other guys like me.

Monday, I'll be celebrating my 45th wedding anniversary with my One & Only! This will be the 10th in a row without dip!
 
Dip never made anything better. It simply fed the nicotine addiction and made me feel like an idiot. 

Happy belated anniversary, Euty!
