  1. i know i don't post much here, sorry but thanks to the site....ths is my second go around on quiting... today marks 92 days....my only issue is the weight I have put on...damn it. Good Luck fellow quitters, sorry I am not here to help more. PS, i was laid off yesterday yet not an issue in sight....no cope or dip for me.
  2. Just checking in, I don't post much, but I am still dip free from Dec 1st 09.... Gained a ton of weight...around 15 lbs....that is my struggle now.
  3. hey man, I hear ya loud and clear, I was a member here back 8 years ago when I did my quit...quit for 2 years...then started up again...now I am on my second quit at 35 days. Nothing to it man, really. I don't post much and my orginal HOF speech is gone and I don't remember my old log in name, but it doesn't matter...you're doing the right thing. See you in the HOF.
  4. Have to agree, seeing as I used this site over 8 years ago to quit dipping, then after 2 years of no dipping I started again...I won't be returning to dipping this time around. Done for good. Just goes to show you, anyone can cave. Just have to be strong.
  5. Hey guys, sorry, been busy....Day 17 for and still going strong. Went hunting last weekend, people were dipping all around me, but no problem...they were jealous that I had quit and they were still putting chit in their mouths. Cheers RR
  6. I remember my first visit after I quit...about 7 years prior to the last visit, just as you. The relief I felt was weight off my shoulders. I walked away with a cavity and a root canal. I'll take both over the big C! Just be wary though, this drug will try to convince you to go back to dipping...the fear that we felt while sitting the chair, listening to the dr. say things like "uh oh" or "interesting" or "what do we have here"...all that fear leaves once we hear, "no cancer" or "all is well". Many former dippers here used to walk out of the dentist office with that 6 more months of dipping thanks to the clean bill of health they just got. Don't let this good news inhibit your progress...keep your guard up. And congrats on the good visit! I am sure you are breathing just a bit easier now! -Penguin I hear ya, I also went to the dentist yesterday he said my gums looked very good for someone who had only quit for a week and who have dipped for as many years as I had. However, the dip did takes its toll and I will be paying out around 6K to fix some teeth. Some due to dipping and some not...next week I get 2 Root Canals and 2 Crowns...then after Christmas and the 1st, I get 2 crowns redone and 4 fillings fixed. Damn.
  7. whooohoo....1 week down. This whole quiting thing is easy. now all the money I am saving will go to the dentist.
  8. Hey Brad, welcome....this is my second time around on the quit train...I am a dipper of 18 years combined....well techincally, only 16 years really bc of this site, I was able to quit for 2 years then I made the mistake of taking just one dip, now 6 years later, I am back again and clean for 4 days now or so. We all wish you well on doc visits and I am sure many here can provide you some info about similar experience and how it worked out. You can do it...now you have to.
  9. mine went got got me seeds, candy and she is staying the hell away from me... LOL
  10. how are the quitters doing today?
  11. I've got the seeds, I've got the "Hooch" mint. They work ok. My biggest problem is I just REALLY enjoyed dipping. I dipped all the time so it seems like every thing is a trigger. My wife knew I dipped (she didn't like it but just dealt with it I guess) so I never hid it. I own my own business so nobody to tell me I couldn't do it. Seems like I was dipping from morning until I spit the last one out at night (usually choking on it after I fell asleep with it in). Just have to try and disassociate all those things from the crap I put in my mouth. It really is a shame that is seems like my happiness depended on a toxic chemical wedged between my lip and gums. I was dipping between 1 can and 1 and 1/4 cans per day...i wouldn't dip for a long time but I would dip a lot...if that makes sense. For me it will be the behavior things that are harder to quit. Driving....showering...sitting in the library (errr restroom) hunting etc...those are going to be the though things for me. Exactly!! I looked forward to going home after work, eating dinner, then heading downstairs to watch football, movie, whatever with a fat one! Just doesn't sound that appealing anymore without the dip. I guess a little depression is setting in. Don't even want to think about sitting in the deer stand! I haven't been out since I quit. I get to test the deer stand next Friday...gonna have lots of SMC with me.

  13. hang in there guys . something must be wrong with me...i am not really having a tough time...when I get a craving, I pop some seeds...when I get a big craving or a trigger, I get some SMC. Maybe my head is so foggy i don't know what the hell I am typing.
  14. Lex, the SMC seems to be much improved since I used it too about 8 years ago....I went with the WG flavor, but i am going to run down there in a bit and pick up the "cope" version.
  15. I am in, my last dip of cope was at 1:15 pm CST today. Been having a little trouble with the site, strange errors....can any of the mods or admin change my quit date? Strangely i feel dizzy.... RR, That's what I'm talking about! The hell with Jan 1st! Like bball said, lets kick this thing in the ass together! Day 2 and I am crushing these sunflower seeds! Don't feel any better than day 1 but glad I've got this forum to vent on! Sup Lex..I had a few problems around 4-6 am, waking up but mananged to get back to sleep. No real big problems today yet...had a dip of SMC...that stuff is much improved from the last time I used it.
