the things that you remember and think you miss about having a dip are all due to the fact that you are a nicotine addict. As a smoker, I felt the same way about my cigs....about how they were my "friends"??? Once you get past a certain point in quitting, you realize just how whacko this line of thinking is.....I mean who in their right mind misses smelling like a wet ashtray? Hacking up a lung in the morning?? Leaving movies, kids plays, family dinners, etc. in order to feed the demon....as a dipper, tell me what a wonderful thing a spit cup is? Pu..leeeeze!*#*! (My son dipped, so I know how nasty that thing is.) My point is, we loved things about our addiction cause we loved quieting that demon....you know, the one that rages for a fix...the one who demands that we light up or dip.
make a list of all the advantages of NOT having a chew in your cheek....(ask your wife and kids to add a couple of items each) keep that list handy.
My son gave up his chew over 4 years ago.....and I know he had a really tough time....he used the herbal mint chew to help him through the rough times....he feels that he has finally reached a point where he no longer feels threatened.
I just want you to know that you CAN beat this addiction....it's tough and it doesn't happen over night.....but it does happen! so hang tough
