  1. I am on day 27 and i almost caved today. my son started kindergarten, there has been a lot stress lately and i just feel like i need "something" to calm my nerves. to be honest, what stopped me today from getting a dip was remembering that when i dip i get headaches, jaw pain and neck/shoulder pain that i thought was from stress. Never knew all that stuff came from the Grizzly wintergreen until i quit. i was like f*ck! If I put a dip in all that is going to come back.. I just want the high, not the pain. so here i am chewing gum and fighting it again. seems like i read somewhere, maybe lilhotty, that she had a hard time around day 25-27? I need to look that up, because the last few days have been as hard as the first few.. as for nicotine gum, i was using the nicotine gum UNTIL THE DAY I CAME TO THIS FORUM and did research. don't waste your time with that crap.. you are just delaying that 3 days it takes for the nicotine to completely come out of your system. oh, and it doesn't work to much anyway. l8tr.

  3. check this out.. look for the one who has the highest "Dependence": Dependence: How difficult it is for the user to quit, the relapse rate, the percentage of people who eventually become dependent, the rating users give their own need for the substance and the degree to which the substance will be used in the face of evidence that it causes harm. http://drugwarfacts.org/addictiv.htm
  4. Watch the caffeine and wine. If alcohol is a trigger for dipping like it is for many, it might be better to leave it alone for a month or so. Also, nicotine depletes caffeine so as to halve its effect. When you eliminate nicotine from your system, the effect of your normal intake effectively doubles - possibly causing you to think you are craving like crazy when you're just hyper from the caffeine. For the first several weeks after my quit began, I filled my cup with half water/half coffee or drank less soft drinks. thanks! good point about the caffenine.. i think your right.. feeling a little jittery is making it seem like i need a dip.. i have been replacing that urge with some sugar free orbitz gum..
  5. Day 14 clean.. still having tough times.. going through a lot of stress the last few weeks and came close to grabbing a pinch.. so far so good. seem to be eating more and grabbing on to other things like caffeine and wine. but no dip.
