  1. gottadoit – Day 504 – I promise not to use nicotine today
    David S – 508 ODAAT (text pickup)
    Gregor – 499 no nicotine today (text pickup)

    Still not midnight yet here in the desert (Phoenix). We are all 100% posters and want to keep that record. Tried posting here earlier in the day multiple times, but didn’t go through.

  2. Guys,
    For those of you who have not tried out the new site with all the changes, I highly suggest you do. There are many of us old farts that hate change, but I don’t hate quitting. Everything is back up and running on all 8 so, re-register using your old username and password (it takes a whopping 10 seconds) and start posting your daily and support.

  3. Well said. In my limited time here old Chewie has been the most active daily.

  4. For you guys giving Chewie a hard time for the site issues or the upgrade, the last time I checked it costs you exactly $0 to be involved here @ KTC. He has explained, a lot nicer than I would’ve I must admit, why the upgrade was needed. Without Chewie & KTC, no way I’d be 3.5 years quit, thanks!!!! So take 30 seconds of your life, re-register or whatever, have a Coke, & a smile, & stop whining……

  6. I got an email about a new forum, but when I go to the URL of forum.killthecan.org, all I get is a “pageok” text displayed. What’s going on?

  7. They really fucked up the forums. Day 1627 I think. Goodbye KTC.. “upgraded site” keeps telling me my account doesn’t exist.. the same login I’ve been using for 4 years. No time for unnecessary bullshit.

  8. Chewie, I read a lot of your replies, and your references. I’ve heard that when you quit switch to a flavor you don’t do, so I went full out on non-nicotine flavors of fully loaded chews. Yet, and it’s a big yet, why hasn’t a natural flavor been made yet? I mean you’d think it would be the easiest one to make? I quit when I was 17 for like 8 months, so now it’s hard as hell. I consider you an expert on quit, while no offense, I know you’re human. Yet an
    y help and advice is greatly appreciated.

  9. New mobile forum is garbage.

    • I have been quit now for 22 days. I am 26 years old, and have been dipping since I was in agri class at 14 or 15 I can’t remember. I struggle daily, I won’t lie about that. Some days it is easy, some days it isn’t. Maybe it’s the way I quit that did it to me. I work the road, traveling and on call 24/7, and one day in the middle of work I took the first dip out of the second can in a roll of Copenhagen, and said that was it. I never thought I would post on here even though I have read this site over and over again. I quit out of fear of cancer like many people on here. Not so much the death, God is great! But because I want to see my daughter grow up. For all of you out there who are reading these comments, who have just started chewing or just took a dip or for some dumb reason are considering it. Don’t! My addict brain has tried to tell me that snuff doesn’t kill, its cigarettes, it’s cigars. Not Copenhagen snuff, it’s ok. Stay away from tobacco. Even now, I want a dip, and it’s almost been a month, even now I crave it daily. Stay away from the can, stay away from snuff. The preaching out of the way, has anyone tried fully loaded? I’ve been toying with Smokey mountain snuff and it just doesn’t do it. I’m scared to intake any nicotine since I’ve been free for 22 days, but at the same time I’m reaching out to you guys for help. I’m struggling, I need to find something that is the same texture. I know there are no flavors comparable to Copenhagen snuff, but what about a true strait? Any help or support is greatly appreciated! Also never forget to tell the next generation to kick the habit! To never start it, for we are the keepers of the future! Thank you, every single one.

      • It will be 2 years in January for me. I stopped when I was sick with a stomach bug figured if I felt like crap anyways it might lessening the withdrawals. I started out chewing cinnamon gum and fire jolly ranchers but missed that lip pack. So eventually found Smokey Mountain classic ( Copenhagen like) and it wasn’t the same but just enough that after dinner or working on my truck I’d have that feel. A few months my wife was frustrated I traded bad worm dirt for less bad worm dirt I then traded that out with speariment gum. I’d say for the first 3 months I was using Smokey mountain the next 2 to 3 months always chewed gum now I use gum occasionally but when I’m stressed I do chew several pieces it’s not that I want to dip but just a coping mechanism I guess. Got drunk last year and smoked a cigar but thank God It didn’t effect me. I feel so much better not dipping, I don’t mumble, I have saved a ton of money, my wife kisses me without asking if I have a dip in. I dipped and smoked for 20years Copenhagen was my go to dip. When it came down to my last $10 My priorities was Copenhagen, gas and food etc. I’d go without eating and push the gas gauge past E just so I wouldn’t go without Copenhagen. Out of all the great benefits from quiting I’m grateful I’m no longer in the grips of nicotine.

        Good luck Turbo you got this man. The worse part was the first couple weeks after that it’s a recurring thought in your head but it’s not as strong as before. Keep Going.

      • You have to 100% accept the fact you ain’t gonna find a replacement, just ain’t gonna happen. One you come to grips with that, it gets easier. Find something to simply get you by. I have tried almost everything KTC has reviewed. Most taste like shit, that’s just keeping it real. But IMO, the best texture is Hooch. They offer an awesome sampler pack, order it & give it a shot, my favorite is the Key Lime. My absolute favorite is Teaza pouches, they are awesome, still use them to this day. I’m 3.5 years nic free, rarely if ever get cravings, don’t use fake dips really anymore although I have a few cans of Hooch laying around, probably not even any good now. Buck up buddy, you can do it.

        Dano, I agree. I have come to terms that there will be no true replacement to my snuff. And while it kills me, I know it. Yet just a texture, like not grass ground up, would be nice. A flavor close to natural, Copenhagen snuff, or even any kind of natural would be nice. I know that it is part of the quit to sacrifice and I can do it for the extension of life. But it would be nice. I mean they could take tea leaves or something similar, soak them in molasses and it would almost be redman golden blend or Levi Garrett. So why not natural?

        • Turbo, have you tried Hooch Whisky or Classic? Those may give you a taste you’re looking for. As far as texture, Hooch has a real good texture, not much float, packs real nice.

      • I’ve tried them all and found no satisfaction with any of them. I think you’re better off toughing it out. I would listen to these folks that have a year or two under their belts for sure. They obviously did it right.

      • I’m on day 51. It gets better. The fog is still with ke, and it’s miserable. But, I’m not a slave right now. No one tells me how to spend my money or time. Stay quit. You’ve got this!!!!!!

    • i promise no dip today mod

  10. I was visiting an old friend over the weekend. He had quit dipping 3 years before I did. We had a long discussion about what worked and what didn’t. We talked about how “Nicotine Replacement Therapy” became “Nicotine Supplement Therapy” and always led back to the can.

    More interesting to me is that he mentioned he still gets cravings after more than 5 years off of it.

    One thing we absolutely agreed upon was that neither of us can have a dip again, otherwise we’ll die with it in.

    Any time I find myself in a situation that I’m tempted, I think back to those first three months. NFW can I ever go through that again.

    I wish everyone strength and success with their quits.

  12. Well I’m glad to see posts from folks doing well. I’m on day 4 and not doing to terribly bad. This is probably the 100th+ time I’ve quit and hope I can make it stick this time. My longest go was about 9 months. But then I weekend. I’ll try to keep my head out of rectal defilade and geterdun this time. I do sincerely appreciate y’alls posts. At 53 years old and about 40 years of chewing, I got to give it up for good.

  13. Been 804 days and there are still times I could bite barbed wire to have a dip

  14. I’m going on 2 years and still find it hard to concentrate and focus about half the time. The struggle is real and we will never be “fully “ healed or “over it” but you just learn to cope the best way you know how and keep piling up the days.

    • I know what you mean Bill,I’m on day 898 today and still get urges every now and then. But we make it through one day at a time. Currently hanging with family and my older brother still chews and I sometimes want to ask for some, but I think about all the days I haven’t and don’t want to sacrifice those to start over.
