This thought has occurred to many dippers. “Dip has more nicotine in it than cigarettes and dip is a straight shot to the system through the mouth. Heck, I don’t even like smoking. It’ll be a means to an end.” Sound familiar? Most of us have actually followed this logic.
The most important thing you must understand is that nicotine is a very powerful drug and THAT is the substance you are addicted to. Altering the delivery method is doing nothing to combat your addiction. Much like an alcoholic, trading Budweiser for Jim Beam is not combating addiction; it is simply using a different delivery method. No matter the method, use of the drug is simply feeding the addiction. The only “good” way to quit smokeless is complete abstinence from all form of nicotine.
