  1. Ok, no problem. I always heard that Kodiak was the worst but its good to see you still quit. Come to this part of Texas and we can go down to Freeport and go fishing. Im starting to get mad at em.

  2. Nothing needed... keep the quit rollling...

  3. Buccee. I changed my screen name from fishnhunt to KOTBear. I started dipping in college, so i wanted my screen name to represent what I gave into and what I will break, not necessarily my interests. I guess it was personal. Hope you are having a great day. Thanks for checking in on fishnhunt!

  4. we still need to get a cold one when you can

  5. Kurt- more power to you for deciding to quit. As you see here, you have supporters from different stages in their respective journey away from the grips of the nasty brown crap in a can. I found this site on day 2 of my quit. I couldnt have done it without the people here, the diehards, the new quitters, those in my quit group, they have all been there. If you have been six weeks without it, then you can go today without it. Join a quit group and promise that you wont do it today. And listen to what people have to say here. Most of us here havent ever met in person, but we know each other very well. You think of caving? You have to PM me or another one here and we will talk you out of it. Rob
  6. Take it one minute at a time. Get past the first four days. Print the Contract to Give Up and put it in your wallet. Hard candy or even the fake stuff. Reach out, join the newest group and take your life back from what is nothing but smelly dirty shit in a can. It can be done. If I can go 200 days without a dip, after dipping for 20 years, you can make it through today. You dont want to piss off Truckerick, anyway/ Its not pretty when you do.
  7. Penguin couldnt have said it any better. Why wait three or four more days to do what you know you should do today? If you quit today, the nicotine will be out of your system by January 1, so the time to quit is now. Now. Not tomorrow. Now. If you quit, you are also giving a gift to your better half, your kids, your family, your coworkers, your friends, and anyone else you promised in the past that you would quit. You can duck hunt or watch football or work in the yard, or read, or whatever, without it. I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and I wish everyone a Happy New Year.
  8. 1- avoid the nic replacement products 2- read Steve the Builder's Hall of Fame speech 3- join the new group 4- count the minutes by, then the hours, before long, its been a full day. Then, three days, and the nicotine is out of your system. 5- look at the pictures with the guys with half of a face 6- print out the contract to give up and put it in your wallet 7- take pride that you have now gone a day or two or three without putting cancer-causing smelly shit in your mouth.
  9. I understand what you're saying. I was also a ninja dipper. There were some things I did primarily to dip without constraint. If I had no other enjoyment doing those, I've found other things that I do enjoy to occupy my time. You'll get all that sorted out. For now, Job 1 is to stay free one crave, one minute, one hour, one day at a time. I think the confusion with SweetTony's wording is that it makes more sense to the ninja dipper then to those of us who didn't ninja dip. I hunted, fished, played golf and most other of my activities for other reasons then to dip. I had to get through the triggers but because I didn't do these things in order to dip, I still enjoy them as much as I did while I dipped. I can see that if you couldn't dip in the house, so you took an evening walk in order to dip, once you stopped you may not be interested in continuing the activity. I agree with Euty. Stay dip free and everything else will fall into place. I just chewed and spit all over everybody! Boy! Is the World glad I quit! Or how about this- following up on TR's words- one of the guys that got me back here when I caved back in June- do the things you still like to do, without it. You dont owe the NB a damn thing. She took your money, your flexibility, away. Gave you cat shit breath, and everything else. Tell her to fuck off, and that youre going hunting, fishing, yardworking, whatever, without her. it will piss her off. Well then fuck her. Im tired of this shit. Have a fucking sack and quit. I do not have the "street-cred" here to be one of the go-to guys. But Ive been there and I know. It aint rocket science, folks. If you want your breath to smell like ass and increase the potential of having half your fucking face go out with all of the used hypodermic needles and other medical waste, then pop that can and throw another one in. When you go hunt or fish, or whatever, take seeds, the fake stuff, gum, whatever. The world will continue, even if you dont have doo doo in your fucking mouth.
  10. Oh? You're just making that up! You, you trouble-maker you! You should be more liberal and not so opinionated, like me! Oh, by the way, I haven't had any nicotine in any form for three years. "I like my turkey, Cold!" Props to TR for hitting three years. He is getting accolades in the HOF hangout. Props to all of the guys like Ohioman who look out for us every day. New Quitters- they dedicate a lot of time and attention to ensure that you stay quit. Thank them for it.
  11. Congratulations Euty, and thank you for being here supporting me and others every day. I remember reading your posts earlier in my quit, and when you said you never craved it anymore, I had a hard time believing you meant it. I thought you WANTED to mean it, but deep down I was betting you were "whistling in the dark." It's been quite some time since I've had any serious thoughts or craves for Copenhagen. If you're reading this, and wondering if it's worth it, it is. If you're wondering whether you're different and the craves will never stop for you, you aren't and they will. If you're wondering how long it will take, don't worry. Just get through today. That's how Euty got to 1500, and how I got to 688. I'm another quitter who owes Euty a debt of gratitude for being here, and visible, and vocal. It really is just as simple as one day/hour at a time. Not easy, simple. He said, and showed, that those hours and days add up, and at some point you realize that "wow", I'm doing it too. Today I'm at 1,006, and am a very happy quitter. Euty is a big part of that, and I want to say thanks. It's not easy to stay that visible, that active. Euty took the time and trouble to do so, and I thank him. Euty hope your mom is doing alright. Congratz on 1500 days. Thanks for the posts about keeping the caffine down...it's helped. I read 3 of your posts talking about keeping the caffine down and I just said that was insane. Before I quit I was at 1 12oz can of pepsi a day, after I quit I went to 7+ 12oz cans. I thought it would help the headaches and body aches...it did temporarily but made them even worse when the caffine passed. Things sucked for a while. Now I'm down to 2 12oz cans...almost back to normal and it really has helped. Thanks for staying on QSSN and lending wisdom. Congrats, Euty! You know I love you! Heck! If it wasn't for you, I'd run rough shod all over this site! Giddy up! (You keep me honest and I appreciate that!) Dear Nic bitch- its the eve before my HOF and I have been allowed to open presents early. On behalf of all of us- go fuck yourself.
  12. I own you. And this time, the sequel is better. We have all been there. That is why we are here. After all of that, this place is a source of dignity, guts, and pride. We have all been there. In the movie theather with the extra cup, the "ice cup" we asked for when we got our popcorn and diet coke. And we would watch the movie, with dip in our craw. If the movie happened to be a sequel, it usually sucked. Think of it- Jaws? Airplane? They should have stopped at the first one. Not now. Not in this case. This is my sequel. This is Freerollin and AZRichard's sequel. The first showing we had as the Jerkwads was great. We quit. Each of us hit 200-plus days. And each of us caved. So I, along with them, are back. And we fucking quit. And this is the sequel. There will not be a third episode. We quit. The sequel happened at my own choosing. Nobody forced me to cave after 255 days. I did it myself, and I offer no excuse. Any excuse would be lame, anyway. I wrote my first HOF speech "Can you go back" in January of this year. My first 100 without it, after 20 years of being a slave to a can of rotten cancer causing shit. I was proud of it and what the January 2010 group did. So this speech will not go over how I started, how I got addicted, how it ran my life, how I had the epiphany and finally quit, etc. This speech is about my cave, and what I went to do to rectify it. Its humbling in a way. Tomorrow, had I not caved, would by my year quit. Just like my buddy JimmyVV who takes the time to reach out to people he has never met, but knows very well, to help them stay quit. God bless you, Jimmy. You are a main reason why Im back here, and why my jaw is still attached to my damn face. It is laughable and sad, what each of us here knows. The shit can talk. Its a pack of brown shit in a little can, but it can talk to us. When we are driving, working, on that airplane flight, waiting to get off so you can get to your carry on bag so you can throw another fatty in, when you are eating dinner; you name the time, and it has spoken to us. You got out and work in the yard and it says "what are you doing, going out into the yard without me?" Going hunting, it says "I get to go as well". It says "I OWN YOU". "I make you drive to the store at 2 AM to get me", "I make you sit and hide in the bathroom at the inlaws house or drive arond the block ten times." "I OWN YOU AND DONT YOU EVER FORGET IT." I quit through the spring and early summer of this year. I was proud and felt better about myself than I had in a long time. Then, late June, fight with the girlfriend, bad trial that I had, I heard the voice that I had ignored for 8 months. The NB said "I OWN YOU." And like an idiot, I pulled over on the way to a fishing trip. Parked at the store, got out, bought "just one" can, and had half of it finished before dinner. I knew it was wrong, but did it anyway. And then I did it again, a can a day, for ten days. I was ashamed. After the promises I made and the days I had gone without it, I needed to feel that way. Radio silence. Before my boneheaded cave, I was an active poster here. Then I vanished. When you get to 200+ plus, your friends will cut you a little slack if you dont post. When I hit a week without posting, Ohioman and Jimmy reached out. I felt too guilty to respond. I thought to myself, "words dont mean shit". Then Truckerick tore me a new one. I needed it. And I remember, the Sunday night after the 4th of July, I got home after working a shift at the jail (dipped a whole can), got home at 12 AM, and had told myself, THATS IT. I got home, had that stray can on the kitchen counter with one last fatty for old times sake in it, and I threw it down the sink. I said. Thats it. Nic bitch- you got me once, after having me for 20 years. But not again. You can tell me "I OWN YOU" all you want, but you dont. You fucking bitch- let me tell you something- "I OWN YOU!!" At least for tomorrow, I do. Im not down with the colorful sets of the peach and cherry and mint flavored "lets get the young kids hooked on me" displays at the convenience store. Im done with spit cups, cancer potential, and all of the heartache that you have brought so many good people here- soldiers, police officers, coaches, teachers, attorneys (give me a little leeway here), and every one else. Go fuck yourself bitch. Thank you- Jerkwads- for letting me back at the table- Ohioman (calling and checking on me there times or so when I caved) and TR for doing, what everyone knows you do for so many people. To Chip and Rob and CCIE, To Ump and Boudreaux and the Octombres for allowing me to be a part of such a great group of people. Thanks to the Quit tanks- your group, once there with the "got to see" pics, has dwindled to about four or so people. I only sincerly hope and pray that the guys in the group that hit the hall, are still quit. Thank you to those who reached out to me a year ago- when I was really lost. This last 100 was a lot easier- cause I knew that I had yall here to back me up- and I would not and could not disappoint you. And I didnt. And tomorrow, I wont. Let me part with this- you folks out there that hit the HOF or hit 30 or 60 or whatever- get your fucking ass back in here. I dont want to hear it. But you are welcome as far as Im concerned, if you promise to quit. Lurkers out there- the stuff is gross, dangerous, it stinks, you look like a douche when you spit into a cup at your kid's little league game, need I go on? No. So, I wont. Make the tough but smart decision. Quit. Like the proud here. Words alone are hollow and pointless. But our actions are not. And we say through what we do when we say to the nic bitch after what each of us has been through- "I OWN YOU". It is not, will not, and cannot, be the other way around.
  13. TR-In a way I resent that. Why dont you give us any credit for a stupid gene pool? Sincerly, Attorneys.
  14. Actually, this is a serious consideration. One of the reasons I continued to chew for 33 years was because I could "justify" my continued use. When I tried to quit, I ate up all the money I would have saved. When I continued to chew, I would say, "Well, at least I'm not....." (fill in the blank) Try to re-group and not substitute one thing for another. We are human beings. God gave us the power of choice. "Don't Buy It, Don't Bum IT and Don't Put It In Your Mouth!" You will survive and it does get better. - The World According to Truckerick What you are feeling now is not going to be how you are feeling in 60 days. When I first quit, I spent more money on seeds, candy and gum then I did on dip. That lasted about a month then my need for the other stuff started to dwindle. by 60 -75 days I only had the chewing gum and only used it on occasion. Keep the dip out of your mouth and you find the rest will take care of itself. Try big ol' Toostsie Pops. You feel a little silly buying them (in a good way) but stick those suckers in your cheek and just suck on them. They last forever, they are fairly cheap, you can pop them out to have a normal conversation with someone, and you get good luck if you get the indian shooting the star with his bow on the wrapper! Cotton Balls. The worked for me. I simply tore off a dip sized piece of cotton and packed it between my cheek and gum. I didn't find anything that mimicked the feel of a dip as well. Early on I would splash a little mouthwash on for the extra zing, but the truth of the matter was I didn't crave flavor, I craved the feel of something between my cheek and gum. As far as cost . . . a one pound bag of cotton balls is pretty cheap. Over three years later most of that bag is still there. I even have a couple of cotton balls bouncing around my desk at work. I don't need them, but on the occasions when I am digging around looking for something, it is pleasant to have them pop up. It reminds me of how far I have come. The fake shit. Smokey Mountain. I leaned on it hard during my first quit, but now, the only time I really need it is when Im working in the yard. I dont dip the fake stuff at work, cause at first glance, it still looks like Im dipping the real stuff. Spitting into a plastic cup, with caked on brown shit on it, looks like I wiped my ass with it, so looks like Im still dipping. I dove hunted this evening without the real shit, without the fake shit. Thought noting of it. Its a fucking weed, folks/. The clutch in your mind, the "I gotta have it", will fade. My solution- triggers- yardwork- fake shit. Hunting/fishing- seeds. At work- Jolly ranchers and other hard candy. Bear in mind- I went 255 and caved for 10 days. Now Im approaching HOF again. Is that a good or bad thing? I was proud of my first speech. Still am. My second one will be even better. I will post it on day 100. I cant wait. And I fucking wont wait. What a gdmn shame- that all of us spend this time (at this point, well spent) on fighting a craving for a can of fucking cancer dirt. You quit? More power to you- think of the lies you dont have to tell, the extra cups at the movie theater you have to ask for, the extra water bottle you need before you get on an airplane- and who here can look a steawardess in the face as you hand her your warm, yummy, spit bottle? I didnt think so. TR has his mottos, I myself, with my limited amount of credibility, have mine too- you will not wake up tomorrow, wishing that you had caved the day before. Go TCU Horned Frogs. Pray for me that Im not jinxing myself for even saying that. Rob I'm feeling benevolent this evening. Buccee is actually making up for being a turd. The Kinder, gentler Truckerick... Like the Sears commercial, come see the lighter side... Making a TR reference in a drunk post-hunting post=he is nice to you. Take notes. I think Ive figured it all out.
