Dip is a disgusting habit. Or so I’ve been told. Many times.facepalm:

I havent had a dip in 2 years and at times I still get a strong craving. Hang it there I was eating peppermints like a madman when I first quit.

Only dipped for a couple years but I quit by chewing gum. I just started putting the gum in my lip in place of a dip. I found the craving for me was mostly just having something there with flavor. Sunflowers helped also but after eating them non stop a couple days I decided they were worse on your mouth than a dip

Do it for your family. They want you around and healthy as they grow. Don’t chance denying them that wish. Just do it!

I quit using the patch and pain in my throat swallowing. After a year and eight months..the cravings had subsided but never went away. I started back when the wife had a medical scare. Results may vary but my cravings never left. The fake dip helps but if you’re around other people dipping..it’s rough. Probably not what you wanted to hear.
 
A lot of my colleagues dip.
My gums receding is what spurred me to quit.
I'm hoping the cravings will eventually subside or at least ease up.
They subside but never totally go away. Or that's the way it's been for me and I quit dipping and chewing 15 years ago.

I think I could quit smoking a lot easier than I could quit dipping.
Keep after it, you want to be there when the little girl in the red dress finally brings your grandchild home. Hang in there!
 
I thought I wanted to dip and chew until I was playing baseball in high school and dived in the outfield trying to catch a baseball. Swallowed the tobacco chew, juice and all. Didn’t take long for me to turn “green around the gills”.:rofl:
