  1. Decided to quit after using grizzly mint for the past few years. Bought some Nicorette gum and it has made the withdrawal and cravings very tolerable. You’re even supposed to park it between your gum and lip like you would a pinch. Give it a shot… It’s worth the $15 bucks if it gets you off of snuff.

  2. Day 341 of my QUIT! Thanks to you all for the support and assistance. I’ve primarily used Hooch, TeaZa, & Smokey Mountain. All are good in their own way. I was a can a day Copenhagen Snuff user for 26 years. Each “placebo” I’ve used I have managed to dwindle off of and hardly use anything anymore. I started off matching my can a day habit and now I can go 14 days without finishing a can. My longest without a “fake dip” is 9 days. The herbal stuff does work… oral fixation! I have not tried the herbals that contain nicotine (Elicit or Triumph) and I’ll NEVER go back to the real stuff again.

    Once again… Thanks to Chewie and ALL of you that have helped! For those of you struggling, keep it up! It will eventually take!

  3. 3 wks nicotene free. I have come to a conclusion Fake dip works. Chewing gum is almost as good. Physical withdrawl is long gone. My prooblem is the mental side. I drive a truck 300 to 400 miles a day on some of the most boring piece oc interstate. I get alot of time to fidget around Thats where fak dip comes in handy

  4. Day 99 and I’m very dependent on Smokey Mountain and sunflower seeds now. Any suggestions for the next step?

  5. I chewed the fake stuff daily (can + per day) for a good 220 days into my quit. Then one day… I just didn’t need it any more. My suggestion would be to use it till you don’t need it any more. The overwhelming majority of people will eventually just put it down and not look back.

  6. What do you mean dependent? Needing an oral fix? Try keeping a water bottle with you and taking a swig instead of a seed.

  7. Keep eating seeds and quit with the smokey mountain. Or continue with both

  8. I use seeds and fake chew too, have for over 120 days now. BUT….I’ve tapered off, as Chewie mentioned, I have only been taking 2-3 fake dips a day now. I’ve only had one so far today. But the seeds….those are some good things! I can see me moving exclusively to seeds eventually. And for $2 a bag, a much better habit than tobacco!

  9. 5 wks almost gave in I found a can in my drawer. I dont know how long it had been there it was all dried up . I thought heck its only one. WRONG! It would have been an excuse to lie to myself as to why I started again So I threw the weed into the toilet

  10. What types of fake dip did you find help full?

  11. John – There are some outstanding fake dips out there. http://www.killthecan.org/your-quit/smokeless-alternatives/ Is there a particular brand or flavor you’re trying to replicate? I’m happy to point you in the right direction.

  12. Smokey mountain wintergreen is a good sweet fake chew, no tobacco no nicotene

  13. I’m trying to replicate Kodiak wintergreen the only dip I have used for the last 20 years.

  14. Is there something that replicates Copenhagen?

  15. I have been chewing the smoky mountain stuff and it is pretty good. I only tried Kodiak and can’t remember what it was like. I am finding that it really isn’t the taste (for me), as much as having something in my lip.

  16. I’ve been chewing Smokey mountain snuff wintergreen and its the closest to Kodiak I’ve found yet. I’m in the same boat as you.

  17. After 27 years of only using Kodiak, I have been trying to find a good alternative, and after 3 weeks of being tobacco and nicotine free, smokey mountain seems to the best fake dip I have found! 3 weeks down the rest of my life to go.

  18. It’s true. Once you decide to quit, you can NEVER go back. I quit a few times and each time I went back, it was a worse addiction. It’s been over 4 years now (quit) and I still use the herbal snuff and I never even think of real tobacco anymore.

  19. Hard love!!!!! If you quit for 1 truly solid week and you go back I say FUCK YOU !!! I chewed for 31 years before I truly quit,I’m in my 5th month of my quit. Just bought a brand new truck as my reward. The money I save almost covers the payment. This is the way it is, if you make it a week you can make it forever, don’t let that brown bitch control what you do, when you do it or keep you from your family

  20. I’m thinking about purchasing some fake dip. Usually do Skoal Wintergreen. So far Hooch and Smokey mountain are my top choices, but they say Hooch isn’t quite like long cut and that Smokey Mountain stains your teeth and is messier than Hooch. What about longetivity? Any suggestions????

  21. Thinking about looking into some fake dip. Usually purchase Skoal Wintergreen. So far Hooch and Wintergreen seem like my best too options, but I hear Hooch isn’t quite “long cut” and stains the teeth and can be a little too “harsh” to feel like real dip. However, SM I hear stains teeth and is super messy. What about longetivity and flavor? Advice and suggestions?? I’ll take as much as I can get!

  22. That’s what I wanted to hear!

  23. Hey Chewie, I hear everyone using Smokey Mountain, is that available in Texas? I finally broke down and ordered some Hooch, but it would be a lot easier if I could just buy it somewhere here locally.

  24. Lex & Ty – reviews, coupons, etc. here. http://www.killthecan.org/your-quit/smokeless-alternatives/ I’ve tried just about all of them. My personal reviews are located here: http://blog.killthecan.org/reviews/ If you’re a Skoal Wintergreen guy I’d point you to Hooch, Holt or Elicit to get you started, but there are SEVERAL great products out there. Let me know if you’ve got any specific questions… happy to help!

  25. Thank you so much!! Ty tried some Smokey Mountain because it’s all our local store sells and we have yet to get our Hooch…he said that it did not have the Skoal tobacco feel or the wintergreen taste. So my question is, will the Hooch Wintergreen be close to the Skoal tobacco feel and wintergreen taste he is looking for? He’s very excited about trying the Hooch! And will it be long-cut enough for him? That is his usual cut of choice.

    Please reply, and thank you for your help!

  26. I’ve often gone on record as saying Hooch Wintergreen (for me) is as close to the real thing as you can find on the market. It won’t be quite that “long” cut he’s looking for, but Hooch DID just come out with a “rough” cut which is much closer.

  27. Today while at Walmart I decided not to buy a can of smokey mountain, Im also on Day190 of my quit. no urges but I’ve been drinking a lot more lately. I’m not sure if it’s cause it’s finally gotten nicer here in the northeast or if I’m substituting alcohol for my ex-addiction.

  28. So we should go for the Hooch Wintergreen rough cut, yes?

  29. Day 243, I curbed my drinking, I drink only 3-4 evenings a week which is better than every night. I still would love to have a pinch but don’t want it all at the same time. I also just came from the dentist and the didn’t beat me up about my teeth this time, pretty cool !!!. I miss my old friend but I’ll get past this part of my life simply because I refuse to be controlled by tobacco or anything or anyone!!!

  30. copehog – Cope is a tough one. I was a Kodiak Wintergreen guy so take this for what it’s worth, but I’d point you to Hooch Classic, Hooch Spitfire or Smokey Mountain Classic as a start. http://blog.killthecan.org/reviews/

  31. Day 114. 20 year Copenhagen man. I tried a bunch of them and found Hooch Classic (hoochsnuff.com) worked the best as a Cope snuff replacement. I mix it up between the classic and spitfire.

  32. hey chewie, this web-site has helped me tremendously get through my first 5 days- thank you!! which fake dip would replicate skoal straight long cut?

  33. I just decided to quit chewing a week ago I’m 22 and I’ve been doing it 2 years. I did on average 4 tins a week. I didn’t think it would be this hard quitting only after 2 years. I made it a week so far but its been difficult not so much on the addicted to nicotine its the habit of it. I’ve tried smokey mountain and Jakes mint chew didn’t like either. Not sure what to try to help. I want what’s closest to either Skoal mint or Copenhagen wintergreen longcut. Thanks guys

  34. Kyle, I can’t help you decide what’s closest to Skoal mint or Cope wintergreen, however, I can say that there are a lot of reviews on pretty much all the fake stuff out there in this website. The reviews are pretty in depth too. Also, if you haven’t yet, join the forums, introduce yourself, and you can get a lot more help in there.

  35. Kyle – we’ve got a slew of reviews posted here: http://blog.killthecan.org/reviews/

    For my money, Hooch Mint is SPOT ON for Skoal Mint.
