I'm on Day 4. I've had some drinks the past two nights and have not dipped which is huge. I'm not gaining weight since quitting dip, I'm actually losing weight. I've lost like 4 pounds or 5 maybe. I've ran everyday on the treadmill about 3 miles, give or take, and later on when I get a craving, I'll go hit the punching bag for a couple 3 minute rounds. I'm pretty happy. My heartburn is basically non-existent. My cravings have gone down. I'm not really craving, it's just that I'm so used
I always wanted to be here since the first time I thought I needed to quit dipping. It has been 19 days without a dip and mentallly I am proud of myself. My mother wanted me to quit for years, even told her I did a couple of times but those were just lies. My Mom died of cancer in '98. She had quit smoking tens years prior. One of the last days she was alive she made me promise to quit and I did, again, promise to quit, only it took me 12 years to full fill it.
I wouldn't even quit for the l
How long does it take for the initial serious cravings to wear off? A week? Two weeks? More? When is the withdrawal over and you crave it, but it's easier to fight off the cravings. Hopefully somebody will get back to me.
Yesterday was my first day with no dip in a loooong time. The worst part was falling asleep. I was exhausted at about 6pm. I went to bed around 10, and Could not fall asleep until 3am. I kept wanting to get up and chew some gum to get rid of the craving, but I resisted. Worst night of sleep ever, but today I feel good. I did not think I could get through the first day, but I did with only minor bumps in the road. I guess this thing is a day to day kind of deal.
I've been wanting to do this for a while. I almost started yesterday with no aid. I started dipping twice only to spit once then feel guilty and kick the lip. Last night from 9:02pm-10:15pm I had my last dip up to now. It was perfect. It was juicy. It was a good one to go out on. Today I've been wanting to dip so bad. Instead I took all my spitters and my 4 tins of new dip and threw them in the trash. I ran a 5K today on the treadmill since there's 2-3 feet of snow on the ground. I thi
Well, I've been battling with dipping for quite some time. On March 15, 2009 I gave my life to Christ and accepted the gift of salvation. Up until this point I had been "battling" an alchohol problem. I put battling under quotations because the battle was a front for keeping my family and friends off of my back. In my new found life in Christ I was accepting of the fact that my drinking and lifestyle needed to change. One thing that I wasn't ready to give up was my skoal.
A month or so after m
