  • Quitting chew...

    I'm sure some of you guys use it. I started in the military (copenhagen snuff), and kept it up as a Cop.

    I quit cold turkey 47 hours ago (but who's counting?) and am ready to pull my hair out. I'm also ready to hop in the truck and go get a can so that I can "wein" myself off of it slowly rather than going cold turkey.

    But in the back of my head, I know that buying that can will turn into full blown dipping again.


    Has anybody tried quitting? How hard was it for you?

    Congrats! Keep it up!


    I had several boyfriends (Navy & Marines) who did that stuff and it made me sick to my stomach. YUCK!!!

      I once quit for 3 months. Then I got my current job. About 2/3 of the people I work with chew, so I started right back up. I have cut back quite a bit lately, but it's so freakin hard to quit.

          Haven't tried to quit yet, but I promised my wife I would quit when our child is born (June). Not looking forward to it.

            congrats.
            is actully harer to quit then smoking. Its going directly into the blood via the gums versus the lunbgs with the ciggs.


            but it can be done. and dont pull your hair out. It makes it harder to style later on.

                Also try sunflower seeds... Funny thing about the Army, In the late 80's EVERYONE chewed... It was hard for me to break and sometimes when I'm driving on a long trip or working late I have the urge to dip. Good luck, with Cope over $5 a can, you will save $$$ as well...

                  I quit both chewing and smoking on May 16th 2006. I must say that it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. My wife was escorting her honors class to Japan for 10 days, that is when I decided to do it (so I did not risk a divorce). When I was at work I was busy so I didnt get a chance to think about it too much (although I was a complete a**hole to everyone) and if I was not busy I made myself that way. However when I was home that was the toughest time for me. So I drank like a fish,and passed out by 7 pm, getting up with a terrible hangover, and blaming the sickness on the withdrawls. What keeps me not dipping or smoking today is how bad I felt that first week, I honestly do not think I could do it again so I stay quit that way I dont have to try again.

                  Just remember IT WILL GET EASIER, its just a b*tch to start off. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

                    well thats one way to do it... but now ur probley an alcoholic... which isnt much better.... lol

                    I quit dipping after doing it since i was 17 eek! Started when i was a jr in HS during football... everyone did it, even the coaches, thats how i would get one during practice... (dont reccoment it!)

                    Sun flowerer seeds are good, jerkey would be good if you do chew and not snuff... good luck!

                          I haven't quit chew yet, but this summer is going to be the end of it for me. I've thought about quitting, and have gone a few days without chewing at all, but then I just think "dang... I want to." On the few days I've gone without, sunflower seeds were my best friend. It's the same mental thing as chew... put it the mouth, spit the shell, repeat. Jerky is another good one, especially the jerky chew. It feels like the real deal, plus you don't have to carry something with you to spit in. I'm probably going to bring a few... hundred... cans of jerky chew with me to Treehaven this summer and quit that way.

                            Quitting is for losers.

                            Started at 13 years old. Ya, 16 was the legal age. I knew a lot of 16 yo's. I quit after ten years at 23, with the birth of my first child. Quit again at 27 and again after 9-11. Then I got deployed 3 times and have been chewing again for a while now. I am going to quit again in 6 months. No more Military, back to the PD where its frowned upon. That should help.

                            Hard habbit to break.
