I've chewed tobacco Leaf of dip for about 30 years now. I put it down Monday morning around 9:00. I bought a box of the nicotine gum and have been chewing on it when the urge got bad. I quit one time before for a couple weeks but started back. Any tips will be appreciated.

No tips from me SilverFox, but I will encourage you to keep it up. My great aunt lost the entire side of her face to cancer, from dipping. \:\( It really is worth quitting.

Be strong Bro. Be a quitter!

I have no experience kicking a dip habitat. But vaporizers have been the God-send for smokers trying to quit.

I used sun flower seeds and sugaless hard candy. I quit smoking and dipping at the same time in 2007, cold turkey. The sunflower seeds got me through.

I'm right there with you brother. 30+ years of dipping. Took my last dip Sunday. I quit once before for the better part of a year and like an idiot started back.

You hold me accountable and I'll hold you accountable ;\)

It's all in your mind once you get over the first two weeks !Hardest thing I ever tried to do , been quit a little over a year myself . It takes will power but kicking the dip part was a lot harder than smoking for me . I'll say a little prayer for you to have help from above .

I quit dipping at the age of 34 after dipping for about 20 years(yea I started young) I don't know if you have young kids, but what helped me was thinking about my kids picking up a spit cup and taking a drink.

Good luck
