  1. I am also a former marine. Outside of a few times in high school, I really started chewing after boot camp because everyone else was. I was a teen then and am now 43. Been chewing every since. I also figured up how much I have spent on Copenhagen since this time last year and could have paid cash for a new truck. It’s definitely time to quit. I’m trying to get it in my head that I made it through the Marines, I can make it through not chewing for myself and my family.

  2. I started back in 1991 just after Desert Storm. I worked my way up to 2 cans a day. Thanks to the VA I have been tobacco free for 41 days and I have saved a whopping $418.20. I couldn’t believe the money I wasting away all these years. I feel 100% better, sleeping great a night and not worrying what new lies I had to come up with to make me feel better that I was chewing. I was put on BUPROPION HCL 150MG 12HR SA TAB. I heard a lot of people don’t like it but I gave it a shot and followed my VA doctors advice and I “Killed the Can”! and will never look back. I do go through a lot of sunflower seeds but that’s even coming to an end. MAN DOES IT FEEL GREAT TO BE NORMAL AGAIN!!!

  3. I have been dipping for 4 years now. I have now found myself getting tired of putting one in. It seems like my body is rejecting it so I spit it out and then before you know it; I have another one in. I am blowing money that way. I really want to stop dipping 100%. I have been thinking about how much healthier I can be and make my mouth feel safe.
    Also I have a baby on the way, this will be an awesome start to fatherhood being successful on stopping a bad habit.
    I need some motivation like everyone says but I really don’t know where to start if everyone I work with dip along side it’s like traditional to dip if you are a male in my family.
    Can anyone show me the way to STOP!

  4. Went from dipping a can and a half a day to nothing and has been 7 days.

  5. Hello all, am chewing tabacoo from last 10 years, last year decided to quite
    almost control 4 months but bigest mistake happen i was taking nicotine gum and got adicted for them

    no am dicided to quite and stop nicotine completetly so today is my 3rd day without any single % of nicotine, with me luck

    still thinkinng why the fuck i tried this nicotine, its worst than any other drugs

    • long time dipper (17 years-ish). Im trying to quit by slowly “weening”/transitioning to herbal snuff. Im strategically mixing tobacco (stokers) with Smokey Mountain. I seem to be having success in that I am already at 30% (70% tobacco) and not having any withdrawal issues etc–I started about 2 weeks ago. Keep in mind, I keep a dip in pretty much all day w/ exception of eating and sleeping–and this hasnt changed since I started the “weening”. Has anyone else used this strategy to quit? Thanks for any feedback/replies. Nice site for those of us who are trying to “kick the (tobacco) can”

      • Hi Bryan – this weeing method (also known as the titration method) certainly can work. But I’ll caution you. Just make sure you actually “complete the ween”. Many people, myself included, start off with the best of intentions and than are never able to pull the trigger when it comes to going 100% nicotine free. And THAT moment, when you’re 100% nicotine free, is when your true recovery can start. You’re off to a tremendous start but make sure you keep your eye on the prize.

        If you’re going to continue down the weenning path, I’d suggest you outline some concrete timelines for yourself (IE, every Sunday I’m going to go another 25%). Otherwise, you’re going to find yourself justifying why you can stay at your current level for “just a little while longer”.

    • hey guys on day 70th … imporvement lots
      still getting some small amount of attention but no necotine from 70 day spend

      achivement for me is really really awesome, been deeping from 11-12 years

  6. day 39. It is aweful I want some so bad. I cant stand it. It feels like day one all over. Yesterday and today are aweful.

  7. Day 60 Today and having a pretty good day. Still feel foggy and get the urge for a chew. 30+ years and I have found sticking to a routine and getting sleep and exercise help a lot. Really want that 100 day HOF

  8. I’m staying up all night! I’m 21, about to graduate from college, planning my wedding in 9 months, I’m moving to Montana. The last one isn’t that bad, but I’m black so I get a few more looks than I’m used to in Seattle lol. I’ve been chewing for a year and a half and 14 minutes ago marks 24hrs. I’m fucking dying!! Couldn’t of chosen a better time smh she keeps telling me I can do it, but it just pisses me off when she envolves herself.

  9. 42 days after cold turkey. Was a 1 to 1.5 cans a day for 33 years. Could not have done it without just stopping , no work just mush thru. Fog is gone. Thought I would get lost in my own house. Working on defeating the weight gain and working my brain to get the last bit of concentration back.

    • You’re an ass kicker. I was 5 cans a week. Been dipping for 30 years. I am working on day 7 right now. Got some fog. Difficult to stay focused for work. But I quit, and I am done with that crap. No more control over me.

  10. 40 Days for me!! 2 cans of Cope Snuff for 25 years. Done, Gone Burried!!!!

  11. Day 18 here…cold turkey….25 years of chewing…staying strong so far

  12. Day 12 for me. cold turkey after 26 years and 3 cans a day!!

  13. 20 days. Cold turkey after 1 to 1-1/2 cans a day. two closest friends chew. haven’t seen them much over the 20 days. still hard some days but I throw in chewing gum or chug a cup of water.

  14. Quitthedayoftheroseparade

    I’m looking for an accountability partner. Preferably someone who has already been going strong after quitting. Someone who I can send a text to if I feel like Im about to cave and is willing to walk me through it. Please leave me a comment if you’d be interested!

  15. i have quit a tobaco chewing but after 15 days of quiting tobacco my mouth sore and minor crackes on the entire edge of right side on my tongue last 20 days this type of issue is happen with any one pl. share

  16. You can quit if you really want too. What stopped me was the doctor told me I had pre cancerous lesions on my lip and even if I quit cold turkey I could still develop mouth cancer.

    Well that was November 15, 2008 and I am happy to report that I did not develop cancer.

    2871 days of freedom

    Drive on my friends you can do this.

    • Day 1805 over here.. just filled up my bottom and top lip, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I was almost to the point of cutting my wrists and inserting tobacco into my blood stream. Stay strong guys. I failed.

  17. Day 90!!! So damn happy I quit this crap.

  18. Semper Fi brother. Currently kicking the grizzly myself.

  19. Day 1 is complete as I head off to bed and I honestly don’t remember the first day of a quite ever being this bad but I’ve never wanted to quit for just my self as bad as I want to quit now. I’ve chewed for 5 of the 20 years I’ve been on this planet and I’m gonna make it through this quit and kill the can and beat big tobacco. Worst part about it right now is I’m already getting dip rage and I’m thinking I may already be in the fog but it just seems like day one is to early for the fog. Any suggestions?

    • exercise, it is a great stress reliever go to the gym and lift some weights or go run a mile that will direct your energy else where instead of using it to be angry and feeling frustrated with quitting i know it sucks but it pays off in the end

  20. Todd, how you doing with your quit?

  21. I’m on day 35! I have been chewing since I was around 14 and I’m now 39, going threw 1 can a day… It’s been awhile since I have attempted to quit and been sucuseesful. I always told my wife and kids, who begged me all the time to quit, I will quit soon…then a week went by, then a month, and then a year and still never quit. I had quit chewing a couple of years ago, but I quit for everyone but myself, which is way a started chewing again! This time is different, I WANT TO QUIT!!!! It’s embarrassing that I can’t go threw a movie with my family without dipping, or go to my kids baseball or softball game without dipping. This horrific habit has stole my life for 25+ years, and I’m taking them back!

  22. I have recently picked a quite date, it is the day we leave are next port which July 30, I’m a merchant sailor and terrified of the withdrawals and the stress involved with my job. Anyways I want this super bad for my self will keep posting till I get through this.

  23. Wow! Today is day 39 fro me since i quit!! Can’t believe it. I have been dipping for almost 28 years! I first started soon after i joined the Marine Corps. You either smoked or dipped to pass time. Guys would even soak their dip in their favorite whisky to give them even more of a buzz,

    I find it hard and still think about getting a can or two but as i have said before i have a 3 year old boy who keeps my mind off of it. We do a lot more activities now. Before i use just get on my computer and play games or surf the net looking for a job.

    My wife also noticed i spend a lot more quality family time in the living room either conversing or playing with our son. I am grateful for this website to hear others going through the same thing as myself.

    I am concerned though because i noticed a small(very small) white bump on my left cheek. Its deep inside where i never kept my chew but i am scared i may have developed something.

    Other than that i feel great of being nicotine free and no more a slave to it. I also can’t believe how much money i have saved since i quit. I did a quick estimate of how much i spent weekly, monthly, and year round. I couldn’t believe for the past 28 years i must of spent some where around 84,000 dollars on this shit. I could of used that for a down payment on a house!!!

    Keep strong my friends!!! Peace

    • I am on day 7. I feel a sore spot on my cheek wall as well. I hope to God it is nothing for both of us. I hope it’s just our bodies healing themselves. 30 year chewer here.
