  1. One dip away from a can a day

    Quitting

    I hear you Drummz, I was also a once a month cigar guy before my quit. It seems like a lot to give up but as I'm guessing RWM pointed out, they're both nicotine and you'll have to give up both to make this work. For me, it was obviously tough the for first few weeks to give up chewing. But once I committed to it and made it past the first month, I really didn't miss the cigars - probably because I put them into the nicotine category with dip and trained myself to despise any form of nicotine. I still get craves once in a while for chew, but as far as the cigars go I find it pretty easy to use the Nancy Regan method and just say no . Good luck in your endeavor and hope to see you posting up day one soon. Tank p.s. I just figured out how to clear out messages from my profile, so I can now accept new personal messages

    Hey Drummz, welcome to the site and congrats on your decision to quit dip and make your life better! As Tiger Refuge says above, you need to go to the June 2019 quit group and post your promise not to dip today in roll call. Posting can be a little confusing at first so if you need some help, reach out to me or anyone else here on the site and we'll be happy to help. You can message anyone here just by clicking on their name/icon which takes you to their profile. Your fellow quitter, Tank

  5. Congrats on the Hall of Fame! Keep up the good fight!

  6. Hi Everyone, I am a new member, but I have been following the site for a long time, even before they had forums. I would just like to introduce myself, I am a 27 year dipper, who has taken a 1 year break in those 27 years. I hope to quit in the next 3 months for good. Hey Qwitby45, welcome to the site! You've made a good decision by joining! I think I can really relate to your screen name...I've been dipping for 30 years, am 44 years old, and am on day 46 of my quit! Although I'm not out of the woods yet, it's getting easier. What I would ask you is have you set a date yet?
  7. enjoying the wonders of today without dip

  8. Hey Derek, Happy Birthday you quit king!

  9. So I'm out playing hockey tonight in an adult mens league. We're losing 3-2 in the 3rd period, and we end up tying the game 3-3 late in the game (we're fighting for a playoff spot and need every point). It's a hard fought team effort to get the tie. Anyway, we go to the bar afterwards, and I end up having numerous beers and chicken wings with the boys. I'm having a great time, talking about the game, how we should have won, about golf in the summer, and life in general - great comraderie...all the while thinking about chew. And my thinking's getting more intense. I do know that I've quit the shit for 21 days now, and I know in advance not to set up my triggers (drinking excessively and having an acohol induced good time), and the need to keep focused. After the 3rd beer, I'm thinking hard about chewing. After the 4th, I'm thinking I'll probably chew tonight. At the same time, I'm thinking that I've made it 21 days, I've posted today, and I can't let my brothers down, let alone myself. However, after the 5th and final beer, I end up leaving, thinking where is the nearest open "convenience store" that will sell me the addictive brown shit. I get in my car, start the engine, turn on the lights, put on the seatbelt, and see the Jolly Ranchers and the case of water I put in the car for this exact purpose. I unwrap a JR, stick it in my mouth, open and drink some water, and suddenly my senses return, whereby the urge for the nic bitch goes away completely! I skip the convenience store and the brown shit, go home, and will wake tomorrow without regret that I chewed the night before!
  10. Grainger - Three years of freedom, and you went back to nicotine slavery? The past two months must have been hell on your psyche and your body. Howerver, you can't change the past, you can only change the future. Day one of freedom is a good day. Stay quit today!!!
  11. Unleaded, I am in the same boat as you, started late in life, I have a son and a wife that I have been lying to for 8 years now. How can I be a good father and dip? I can't. I have weird tiggers because I was a ninja dipper. When I hear that my wife is working late, or if she askes me to run to the store. I have been quit 13 days and I have noticed I really do like to spend time with them. I was missing out on my home life, because I would rather get away to throw a dip in, what an idiot! My brother chews, and has since I can remember, he gave me my first dip when I was 8 or so. I smoked from the time I was 15 until I turned 26, I quit smoking and started chewing 6 months later. I have yet to tell my brother I cant hang with him for a while, because if I do I will be very tempted, I look up to him yet, hate that he chews. Unleaded and Coffee Junkie - Appreciate your words. I too have began to appreciate things for what they are, not because ther're an opportunity to dip - been quit now for 17 days - and just realized that. Also have a brother that chews, am somewhat avoiding him during my ealry quit. Anyway, i notice your quit dates - if you haven't already done so, come on over and join the MOFOBROS quit group (January - February quit dates). We could use you guys!
