Won the Battle, Lost the Softball Game

Played softball this evening - one of my triggers. Softball (from baseball) Golf, and yardwork.   Used to always have a chew when I played. one per game, two per night with double-header nights.   using gum and seeds to substitute.   Got ourselves whupped by 10, but that doesn't matter. didn't chew, and only had moderate urges, more out of habit, not physical need.   This is a habit, and I'm addicted. While i've shed my physical dependency, the powerful mental addiction remains, and I mu

1st entry

What the heck is a tag? Never been a blog guy. Is a blog like a diary, and a tag is like a topic of the entry? Guessing it can be anything I want it to be, within the confines of the program. Enough on that.   Really looking for a way to fight the thought that it is OK to just have a dip. My past quits have all been derailed by this one thought. Today, I can tell you it is not OK, but what faulty programming in my head says that I can just have one and be done? That is what I'm looking for. Wh

Day One

Today is day one. As I am writing this blog I have a chew in. Not sure how this is going to work. I feel like crying, not sure where to go from here... I want to quite for my daughter for myself...   Recently I have started to have a constant sore throat. Not really sore, just feels like there is something always clogging my throat, makes me worry that it may be too late...   I know one thing, if I have cancer. There is NO WAY in HELL that I am going through KEMO or any of that BS.. I have

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 intake of nicotine. I will alway be addicted to nicotine! The only way to control my addiction is to not take a chew. The first chew starts

On Quitting With A Group

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 latter...or former...whichever one means the chewing one. I can never figure those terms out.   I'm on day 6 of being quit. I'm still consistently pulled toward bu

Note To My Future Self

In order to maintain my accountability in the future, I have written a letter to my future self to keep in my wallet in the event that I feel a cave-crave coming on.   Hello Future Me,   I'm you on Day 2 of your quit. This is awful. I'm miserable. I am frustrated. I can't think straight. I'm short with my family. All I want is a chew. All I want is for this misery to be over. But I said no. I said no all day long. And you are what?...crying about something that you can't deal with?

Ready to fight again

Well people, I am back. I stil have te problems I left with, but I have to do something. I have gotten up to 2-3 cans a day, and quitting can actually help with some of my problems. So I vow to post roll daily, and try my best to see this through. I am headstrong and stubborn with everything else, why can't I see this through? I will do this, I will fight this, I will make it this time.

So I do need a title...

This is my first blog. I have no idea if this even works or how it works. I'm not what some people might call "Tech-y." I am the opposite of Techy. I like my books on paper and I sure as heck have never had a blog.   Do I need a title?   Tag? What the heck is a tag?   Let's see what happens when I click a button. If this works. Maybe I'll "blog" some more later.   NDT,   Mark   Yes. I need a title with more than two characters...

Chew up some Thoughts

So I am up early due to our 3 month old and I was thinking (and not dipping like I used to)... Of all the truly great times in my life, dip has never been involved.   For example, the marriage to my wife almost 4 years ago. No dip. The birth of our son in December 2012. No dip. All the graduations from colleges. No dip.   No big occasion in my life was there dip involved. This tells me something. Dip is always lurking in the background and never really "adds to" a great situation to (what ou

Trip to the Dentist... How it went...

Well 22 years of not going to the dentist ended yesterday. By the grace of God I do not have any bone loss, cancer signs or excessive gum loss. In the past this news would have been an invitation to go out and buy a can.   Today it is different, I am committed this time. I have my first dental cleaning in a week, actually looking forward to it!

Day 5 and heading to the dentist!

Monumental day for me - I'm on Day 5 and it's been hell as y'all know. I get fits of rage sometimes and I take it out on anyone around me but I'm happy to say it's fading a bit. I'm not very fun to be around.   Heading to the dentist where I haven't been for 22 years in a few hours, scared to death to find out what I've done to myself over the years but at least I'm facing it. That's what I'm clinging to right now, that no matter what - I don't have to do this anymore and whatever damage is

Day 1

Well it's almost 24 hours at this point and I'm jonesing for a chew to take away the anxiety I feel but usually that just creates more anxiety anymore so it's really a vicious cycle isn't it?   This isn't my first attempt, I've promised my wife and kids on and off for 16 years that I'd quit - I never made it past a week. I always thought I could 'just have one' when I was drinking or whatever and that one would start me off for the next couple of years until I announced I was quitting again.

Mixing things up a little bit

So I'm new to this website. I decided to google how to quit chewing like I have many times before but this website caught my eye. I read some blogs but realized there wasn't many girls that were writing anything. I know that dipping isn't that popular among girls, but if I chew I suppose there has to be more girls that do also. I'm 18, I haven't been chewing for years, I've started about eight months ago when I was with a few of my guy friends at a party and when they offered me a dip I thought,

What am I doing???

These past few years have been one cluster fuck after another, but this year has by far been the worst. On top of it all I am trying to quit something that keeps calling to me, telling me that everything will be alright and that it can help ease my pain. These past few weeks have been rough, and I either haven't had the opportunity to get get on here or were too lazy to get on here. Due to a shortage in manpower at work it has been crazy. Things are starting to settle down, but now the probl
