Everyone of started dipping for a reason, but all of us continued for one. Ever meet that person that can have one dip a year? Or smoke one cigar every few months? We aren’t that person. We have addictive personalities and we most likely dip to relieve anxiety. Some of us can recognize anxiety and depression for what it is and deal with it. As long as they understand that’s what it is, they can meet it head on. Some of us require drugs. If you have tried dealing with the anxiety and depression and still need help, talk to your doc. There is nothing wrong with it. A lot of us have done just that. Let them know what you are going through, especially concerning your quit. They can offer a wide variety of non addictive anti-depression, anti-anxiety drugs that will help you get through this phase of your quit.
Additionally, the best way to heal is to simply give it time. We understand that right now you feel like you’ll NEVER get back to normal. Realize that for many of us “normal” has never NOT included a dip during our adult lives. You need to learn how to live without dip. Trust us when we say that it will happen, but it won’t happen overnight.
Get on the forums. Read. Post. Make friends. Get your mind off dip.
Before you know it you’ll look back and realize that there is in fact, life after dipping.
