PURE HELL

I HAVE CHEWED SINCE I WAS A KID. MY DAD MADE ME DO IT, AND I KEPT IT UP. I HAVE NOW CHEWED FOR 20+ YEARS NOW. IM ONLY 26 YEARS OLD. MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN DEPENDENT ON NICOTINE. I'M ALONE. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO LEAN ON MY COPENHAGEN. IT'S GOTTEN ME THROUGH EVERYTHING. I LOVED IT. BUT NOW ITS GONE.   I DECIDED ON AUGUST 2 2012 TO STOP CHEWING. I WAS DRIVING MY 30 MILES BACK HOME FROM WORK, DECIDED TO TOSS MY PLUG OUT AND I THEN THREW MY CAN AWAY WHEN I GOT HOME. I POSTED TO FB F

259 days with No Dip

I was looking over some of my Blog entries and figured it might be a good idea to do another update to support what I have been through up to now.   Since my first day with No Dip, I have traveled to Europe and South Africa and spent New Years in New Orleans. I have lost a good friend and 20lbs. I gained the 20lbs back, but have stayed Dip free. There are days and even weeks that I think I have this behind me and don’t need to worry about it again. I then discover I am wrong as a fight a c

Time to nut the fuck up.

I am on day 85, a major accomplishment for me. But I am about to lose it all. Marriage is still in peril and my quit along with it. I quit for my wife, to show her that I do love her and want to make her happy. But too many times now it has almost gone bad. My thoughts have been "If I lose her, what's the point in quitting? I'm not strong enough to survive quitting and losing her." I have found a way. It's time to get mad, to get pissed, to let Captain Asshole take over. I have made 85

Day 1 - 3 - The range of emotions

First let me give my reasons for quitting. 1) I know everyone in life, every now and again, takes a look back at their life and wonders how things might have been different if certain things did or didn’t occur. Well recently, I took a look back at my life thus far and one of the things that really stuck out to me was my addiction to chew. I know you can't change the past and dwelling on it doesn't get you very far either, but I thought a lot about my life and all the 'what if's'. There will alw

Nothing changes if nothing changes...

Hey everyone - I'm beat and I can't keep doing the same thing over and over.   I took my first dip when an older cousin thought it would be funny to watch his 5 year old kid cousin puke. Mission accomplished, but no lesson learned. By the time I was 8 I was dipping at least a can a day. At 10 my world really turned upside down. Tobacco was only part of the story - hell, tobacco didn't even seem to be an issue with everything else I had running.   5 1/2 years ago, for the second time in my li

Almost the end of everything as I knew it.

These past couple of weeks have been touch and go for me. I didn't want to come out and openly say it at roll calls, but I was about to lose my reasons for quitting along with a 10 year marriage. Those past weeks have been a fucking nightmare!!! But this past weekend did show promise of us getting through our issues and me keeping my quit intact. Last week was the absolute worst of it all. I was to the point of wanting to smoke. I hate smoking and everything about it! The only things that

32 Years in the making......

It's Day 2 and I'm blown away by how crummy I feel and how I got here. Let's just say that I have no "happy place" right now. It would seem that 32 years ago, when I was working shoveling horse pooh at a local barn, that little pitch of "hey try this kid," wouldn't still be haunting me. I was only 11, but it was the cool thing to do down at the stables. Then I decided to buy some off the other kids hanging around the stable. Apple brick it was. Pretty lousy stuff, but man did I look cool.

Long road to glory

I have made it to day 47. I don't think I have ever been quit this long. But it hasn't been without perils and tests, but I have survived. I have a quick temper that I find hard to control, with a little voice attached to it that always lured me back to dipping with the promise of control. And daily I have been tested by 2 coworkers who were supposed to quit with me, but barely made it a week before failing. On the bright side, I have gained my wife's trust again! Before I quit, it was to

New territory for me

I feel like I need to put this out there so that it can maybe help someone else on their path to freedom. I have been trying to quit for many years now, all ending in failure. I recently looked back on my life and realized that I was about to hit the 20th anniversary of my addiction. I had to quit, so on 5/8/12 I took my last dip. The following day I was hurting, but I could control it. I just kept telling myself "that's not me anymore, I don't do that". That worked for a few days, but my

Against the odds

I decided to try again. Getting to become a professional quitter. Anyway, I have no support. Wife doesn't believe me when I tell her I have stopped because I have tried so many times before. Been trying to quit for the past 10 years. October will make 20 years of dipping for me. 20 years! That's a career, not a hobby. 13 to 33 = 20. Guy at work that I quit with has already fallen on his face. I am alone out here.

Day 1/24

So this is my umteenth attempt to quit this nasty habit. My old motto was "quit for forever" or at least the rest of natural life. Now after my failed attempts, I know that its not "forever", its for that moment, the one when your brain says "you need this". Hence 1/24 of a day I quit, then the next 24th I quit and on. Really short steps and eventually I'll be cruizing, hopefully.

Venting

Howdy ya'll, this is my first day of my fifth real attempt at quitting. In the past i have quit for up to 6 months before caving. I am hoping support from this website will help me this time. I have been chewing since i was 16, i am 31 now, I have no problem going through 2 cans a day. In the last 3 years since i met the woman who is now my wife I have been mostly nicotine free. I seem to do fine for the first several weeks or months, then I cave. It is so frustrating, after a few months you

crave...

I have endured four days of sweating, stomach aches, lack of focus and more. Today I just finished 3 hours of raking and cleanup outside, rode my bike 10 miles and would you believe that now my body wants me to put this stuff that tastes like evil rotten silage in my mouth so my body can "enjoy it". My first serious potential cave crave. It will not happen. I am going to go read Jenny's letter.   Cheers!

butts from buts

This seems like a as good a place to post this as any. I sent the following to my boss as well as the other engineers, five of them in all that have been on this location in the last nine months. We have all lived in this one camp while we were here for our hitches. I am sure I know which one did it, but so will everybody else that reads it so I did not have to name the culprit.   Eric,   I had the privilege this morning of cleaning up 508 cigarette butts that were strewn from the back door

I am a "Blogger??"

I am on my computer filling my mind with all kinds of educational and emotional reasons why I should stay quit, and now realize I just became one of them there bloggers!

Week 1

Well today is Day 1 for me...Normally I put a dip in around 10 after 8 in the morning. Right after I've had that first cup of coffee...That wasnt so bad for me as of yet..The cravings for me, at this time, seem more mental than physical. I keep thinking, constantly, about the enjoyment and fulfillment I feel with it in, and how much better my performance seems to be. Things are becoming seemingly hazy though...I cant imagine what hell the rest of this day will bring...Thank god for this site..Im

Day 99

Day 87 to 97 were very difficult. Dealt with a lot of depression and anger, including smashing a solid wood chair. Anniversary of my mother's suicide and going to a memorial service for a good friend who hung himself did not help matters.   Daily posing really helped me stay focused on not giving in. Had trouble staying on my diet, but did not cave on my Quit. I suspect it is really good that I made it though this and can use it in the future not to go back to the DIP.   Having other

day 8 is teh sh*t

I had an actually difficulty and unpleasant day today and managed not to use the filthy brown crap to make me feel "better." I am an addict. I cannot use that sh*t.

Ready to take the plunge.....

Hi! Just found this site tonight and I'm pretty happy about it! Tomorrow I'm going to begin sampling some of the tobacco free, nicotine free dip that I can find and begin phasing out my beloved Grizzly! I began dipping in elementary school. Third grade maybe? I didn't dip much back then, but in Junior High it became a full-time thing and continued in to college. I quit three times in my twenties for extended periods of a year or so, but always fell back in with just one more. Now I know, no "jus
