I quit dip on November 27th, 2016.
Today is December 6th, 2016.
This entry will summarize quit days 6-9 which were December 3rd-6th.
I feel great. I feel as if I have shaken the nicotine grip that was around my mind and throat - demanding me to think about and want dip. I do not have urges or physiological symptoms whatsoever. No lip twitch, no waking up in the middle of the night, no tonguing my gums/lip, no nothing. The beautiful thing is that I made it through the withdrawal phase of quitting in a high-stress, busy environment.
I was worthless for those days, but now that I am through the woods - my mind doesn't have a SECOND to think and/or fantasize about dip. My mind cannot change itself back - I've made a decision and that's what we're rolling with, ZERO EXCEPTIONS. I'm so busy that it doesn't even cross my mind. I am surrounded by dippers - and it doesn't phase me. I'm so convicted that I've written dip off in my brain as "something I did in the past".
My oral health has turned completely around. My mouth feels great. My gums and bottom teeth have completely cleaned up and look very healthy. Morning is when you make your money quitting dip. Your mouth just feels brand new.
My general health is great too. My resting heart rate is 42 beats per minute.
Feeling extremely relieved to get through (what I assume to be) the toughest part of the quit. I feel stronger every day I put behind me.
