  1. I caved after about five years. Dipped for a couple a years after I caved. Now, throwing away the can again. Can’t ever dip once or back to a can a day. Trust me on this.
  2. I have not been around for a while, but it is time to check in. 1047 days quit!!
  3. Yes, I got it, so bad that I had a sore throat that made it hard to swallow for years on end. I went to the doc and he gave me antibiotic to clear up the infection and told me to take zyrtec daily, which helps with the acid. All those things worked well, now that I have not dipped in over 2 years I do not get acid reflux much. Maybe once a year, then I use acid reducers to manage. Good luck! My acid reflux went pretty much away. I was on prescription medication to control it and now I am not. I get heartburn when you would expect, greasy burger, french fries and a few beers. Tums takes care of that! I am glad to no longer need the prescriptions!!!
  4. I figured go cold turkey. Gotta be nic free at some point, so might as well start.
  5. Keeping real, real dip free!

  6. My advice is to quit right now. During nomal life. Not on a "special" date, not because the wife is bitching at you. Now. Normal everyday life hides those triggers for chewing. You have to defeat those one day at a time. You can do anything for five minutes. Thats how long a crave is generally. Just dont dip for the next five and you will be ok. Dont worry about the five minutes or the even the next day. Just these five minutes.
  7. Totally agree with Phil. Help others quit. It keeps you on the strait and narrow. There is no "Just one" ever!!! Remember that.
  8. I totally had dreams like that the first couple of months of quitting. Use them for strength.
  9. Read that post. Great stuff to keep up the quit in there. Basically that is how I started, free snuff at shows when I was fourteen.
  10. Past a year without chew. Never thought I could do it but here I am!

  11. Working, making a living. Staying dip free.

  12. WHERE ARE YOU FROM? The idea of this is basically to give everyone an idea of where everyone lives. For all I know someone lives a block away from me and I don't know it. Use the Roll Call method. Put your entry under the appropriate state header (if your state isn't listed, add it). Alabama - Even the southern boys can quit!

  13. Von Nanega-302- Too much overtime. Not spending a dime of it on chew!

  14. I was browsing around and found an older post from a fellow quitter. It is as follows, We are all One Dip Away, From A Can A Day! Get that posion out of your system! Not even one. Get that posion out, one day at a time! Don't worry about how you will do this, or how you manage that- what you do is quit and manage that quit, one day at a time. Life will not leave you behind,in fact you will really start to experience life. The SUCK is temporary! KickThatCan I think we all should keep that in mind always. New quitters, remember how you got hooked, and stay quit. We are all addicts for ever. ODA FACAD is a simple truth. Thanks to kickthatcan for putting it out there.
