Quit Dipping Now
SS: Okay, Charlie ... I'm on day 3 without
Charlie: Hang in there brother. There is a better day ahead.... not sure which day that will be, but you will know when you get there and you will be FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sunflower seeds may help anong with the Hooch.
SS: I have some Hooch and I have some seeds and neither are calling my name like the snuff is. How long did you want snuff, after not having it?
Charlie: About 3 weeks total. Got better and better each day. I put quite a bit of ground pepper in mine for about a month. Gave it a little more burn. Don't know what it did or if that really helped but didn't hurt. Good luck. Hang on, it really is worth it. Quitting smokeless tobacco is hard business. If you made it 3 days you can make it one more; And another after that. Just have to keep on quitting dipping. Every day!
SS: Well, I'm on the 4th day, and it's hit and miss. At times, I would floss with a baboon's butt hairs to have some snuff. Otra vez, I'm better than yesterday. Go figure. It's wearing me out! PS ... I tried more pepper, even in the Spitfire.
Charlie: Strange how we are isn't it? ---a bout the pepper I mean. BTW, if we really knew, there likely is baboon butt hair in the bad stuff. That’s a thought.
SS: Day 5, and I appreciate this crazy correspondence. My urges are going from constant to only the major moments (AM drive, post-lunch, PM drive, post-dinner). Wait, that's still a majority of the time. Oh, well - I've placed $18 in the jar and it'll have $24 this evening (spending to savings).
Charlie: Are you still off the bad stuff? Hope so.
SS: None for 10 days. Today is 11th, I guess. Use Spitfire Hooch way more than planned. I speak in short sentences. Can't piece together longer sentences. I almost had a wreck; my fault. I get in some sort of fog. But my urges and sinister impulses and flash rages have calmed. Mostly. Thank you for asking. Really.
Charlie: EXACTLY!!!! "... and sinister impulses and flash rages have calmed. Mostly." I've been there. You are so close to being over the hump.
Charlie: Do you mind if I use some of our messages on my website? No full names. Don't know if I will but I might somewhere. Maybe on the testimonial page or in the blog.
SS: You can use any of our conversations or exchanges about this, for your site.
Charlie: When someone asks you how you did it, if you would, send them here:
If I can, you can quit dipping snuff.
This is a recent email conversation about quitting smokeless tobacco.
Smoke without smoke? You bet!!!
This past weekend I was playing in a golf tournament when I noticed my cart partner pull out a different kind of cigarette. No flame, no ash, no tar or carbon monoxide found in traditional tobacco cigs, and no second-hand smoke. No odor, and he says, none of the harmful chemicals in regular cigarettes. My buddy was smoking an electronic cigarette, or an e-cigarette and has been off cigs about 10 days now. He explained that he could choose the amount of nicotine he was getting all the way down to a zero nicotine e-cigarette. I learned Sunday of another regular in our group who is off tobacco cigarettes now and is using an e-cigarette too. May be helpful to some of you so I thought I would pass it along and put a link to a couple of the sites here for you to check out. These cigs produce a vapor that simulates the taste and feel of a traditional cigarette. Anyway, no harm in checking it out. Remember, if I can; You can quit dipping snuff. You just might quit smoking cigarettes too.

I was surfing around yesterday and found a site and page that looks like they could sure be helpful. Lots of good information. It was on the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research site at http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/ .
It gives some time lines, what to expect and some ideas on how to quit dipping tobacco. It also gives a great quit dipping tobacco timeline. Stop smokeless tobacco. Sorry it is so long, but here is the link: http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/nidcr2.nih.gov/Templates/CommonPage.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID=%7b244B1BFB-A515-47C5-B87E-B600197C9B5D%7d&NRORIGINALURL=%2fOralHealth%2fTopics%2fSmokelessTobacco%2fSmokelessTobaccoAGuideforQuitting%2ehtm&NRCACHEHINT=Guest#thedangersofdipandchew
My choice of the very best in herbal smokeless tobacco substitutes is Hooch Snuff. Hooch is a great smokeless tobacco alternative.
Until next time, stay off the bad stuff. and remember: If I can, you can quit dipping too!
Almost every day, sometimes more than once, I get an email or some kind of message from someone starting their trek to freedom from nicotine, or are somewhere on the road. The point is that you and I are not alone and we can take some kind of comfort in knowing that where ever we are in our personal journey, someone either is there too, or someone has been there, fought the fight and made it through. Know that you can make it through this day, another day and another day after that until you reach "that day"; the day you are FREE. You can make it. Hang in there brother. If I can, you can quit dipping snuff.
