If anyone is confused, dipping is tabacco you put between your lip and gums(copenhagen), picked it up in baseball. Also called chew up north I think. Just wondering if anyone has been able to overcome this addiction, and how. I've tried to quit countless of times but it just seems every road trip, or when I play a video game, or when i'm bored, well you get the idea. Even tried nicotine gum which took the craving away at the time but I still have the addiction of having that feeling in my mouth. I also take adderall when I study for tests, which makes me crave a dip. So i'd appreciate some suggestions. Thanks
I have chewed since I was 13 and I am in my 40,s now. I chew about a can every 1.5 days and don't spit. I would like to quit as well. I am also trying to quit drinking and I have had some doctors tell me not to quit too much too fast. I quit one time some 10 years ago with the help of a fellow dipper, but went on vacation and smoked some cigars and was right back on it. One thing that will help you with the habit is get some clover chew and put that in when you get the craving. But for me, I think cold turkey is the best. After three days, the craving should subside. Using the clover helps with the desire to put something in you mouth. If you would like to try to quit together, I am serously considering it now. It is the toughest of all drugs to kick (other than meth). By the way, copenhagan is my chew also.
Chronic and long-term alcohol abuse leads to numerous health problems. These physical effects of alcoholism can sometimes be reversed if the drinking is stopped, but some effects are permanent and irreversible. The first physical side effects a person will feel are chronic hangovers, frequent blackouts, unexplained stomach pain and other increasing physical symptoms.
Dipping may not seem as dangerous as cigarettes are to some people because no smoke is involved. Make the decision to quit about you, not about someone else in your life. If you quit for someone else when you don't want to, you may resent them during the withdrawal process. Realize that you are spending money to harm yourself. If you are chewing as often as one can per day, your addiction can get expensive very quicklyYou may not be able to remember when you chose to start dipping. In fact, it may not have been a conscious decision at all.
