  1. Just re-read this… can TOTALLY relate to damn near all of them.

    • Wow! Minus the kids everyone applied to me. I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY QUIT FOR 3 MONTHS TODAY!!!!! I was a decade dipper. dentist scared me straight. This list was great!

  2. You left out the biggest one! When you quit you should experince peace of mind and a greater ability to focus. Should feel a lot cleaner too.

  3. Those are all the things I love doing.. :(

  4. hahahaha done them all

  5. Wake up every morning telling yourself I’m quitting then as soon as you see the store you buy chew stopping and getting a can.

  6. I’m hooked and I know it. Quit cigs 6 years ago and dipped for the first time a few months ago on a business trip. I swore Id never ride the nicodragon again. I’m a fn moron. I gotta get off this junk!

  7. Looks like you need a knew wife that accepts you for you instead of hiding shit oh and if you would get a mudjug half if your problems will magically disappear dude your reasoning sucks

    • Spoken like a true ignorant addict… thanks for stopping by!

      • Dude you’re sort of a jackass.. Why the fuck would I want to listen to your shit..

      • He has a point your wife and kids should not be the make or break factor in quitting it should be so that you have peace of mind and a clean conscience… This man realizes chew has risks that is why he is on the site however some may view the comfort chew provides a better alternative than leading a full life… I know I’d rather lead a stress free life than a long stressful one… The slanderous remarks you made in retaliation to this man make me wanna never come to this site again

  8. I practically cried laughing while reading this. Such a pathetic addiction when it’s laid out like that.

  9. Another very good one would be I may actually want to kiss my boyfriend.

  10. Im in my 3 day of stopping dipping and I have not had a craving and I feel good

  11. I dipped for 15 yrs straight and quit Nov.20 of this year. Cold turkey. Best feeling ever. Sadly tho, I cried laughing at these “facts” cuz theyre all true yet i thought it only happened to me. Sac Up and quit!!! Good luck to you all…

  12. You need more for the females!
    I am on day 5.

  13. Because when my sweet man smiles at me out on a sunny day I notice all the ugly brown stains on his beautiful teeth and he doesn’t even know. It makes me sad.

  14. I was a decade+ dipper. I’m 34, and I’ve been clean for 3 months today!! This list was great! I can relate to them all minus the kids stuff. Feels good not dipping, good luck to everyone fighting the battle! It’s gets better after a few weeks.

  15. I’m 9 days, 4 hours into my journey to quit a can a day habit. Cold turkey. Been a long, grueling week full of ‘The Fog’. Had a 5 day straight headache. Was angry, grumpy, irritable, couldn’t sleep right (several of the last few nights have been 1 hour – 2 hour nights). I loved the post above – “No more jumping back real quick when you have that string of spit hanging off your lip so you don’t get it on yoru clothes” hahahahahahaha.

    I’ve still got some work in front of me but working hard at staying that way. Hardest moment: I drive limos/party buses as Secondary income. I ran thru a bus on day 4: dropped my folks off at a bar and they’re inside, I ran thru the bus with a trash bag to give it a quick ‘spiff up’. Some dude left his can of Grizzly (my brand), Pouches (for wusses, I liked longcut), Straight (My Flavor)!!!!!!!. It was midnight, I’m not sleeping right, I’m tired and grumpy, and I’m by myself in bus with a 3/4 full can in my hand (picked it up thinking it was empty was gonna throw it away like the empty beer cans). I THREW HIS CAN AWAY! I had to do it -wasn’t fair to him, but I knew if I put it back down I’d be back there in 5 minutes throwing in a lipper. I don’t know how I did it, throwing away something i (thought that) I wanted SOOOO BAD! That was my defining moment of the week. That was the moment I was strong enough to say F it, I’m going to kick it.

    Anyway – thanks to all of you out there on this site. Been here everyday for 9 days!

    • Good to hear Bull. Keep positive. The quit will be well worth it. I’m at day 40 and the cravings are still there, but I’m learning to deal with them better.

  16. New to this website (phenomenal by the way) and new to quitting…. Shit like this will make it easier and its fucking funny as shit! I can identify with all 100…. Good to know I’m not alone…… Best

  17. I just couldn’t imagine hunting or fishing without a nice fat juicy taste.

  18. I QUIT, COLD TURKEY, just last night! Never actually gone through with quitting before, just because I never wanted to. But now, I have all the reasons in the world. The hardest thing is I am a welder, so being around all the guys in the shop who dip because we can’t smoke :(. And for the love of all things good, WHEN WILL THESE HEADACHES STOP??????

  19. Your grammar and spelling are terrible. Put some damn effort in

  20. One day free ordered Jakes mint chew today, anyone ever tried it or have a preference for alternatives. Have tried seeds, gum and about everything else. Hope this stuff helps, the headaches suck.

  21. Try the jerky chew, it packs in your lip like chew and tastes pretty good, and once your done…you got jerky in your mouth, helps with fishing and work anyway
