Default quit

Do a search on the net for throat cancer or lip cancer and that will be some encouragement to quit. Smoked and dipped for years. Watch my dad die of lung cancer, quit smoking. Had a gland in my jaw swell up. Doc said possible precancerous growth. Quit chewing.

Quitting smoking was a breeze compared to quitting dipping. To this day, I haven't dipped in 8 years, when I smell Skoal, I still want a chew.

My grandfather got cancer in his gums from dipping and lost his bottom lip. I am now 12 days SMOKE FREE and feeling good. According to the Wi Fit I am dropping a few lbs too.

I thought about what I posted not what I meant by any means...

No jchief your comment is very valid tobacco is bad stuff no matter how you cut it...I am just as guilty. But instead of bragging about it lets try to help people who do not want to use tabacco any more!!

Well, I can tell you that the gum helped me quit somking and I went through 3 of the 5 lbs bags of peppermints from Sam's to kick the Skoal habit. Very tough habit to break. I believe one thing you need to be aware of is the "triggers" that make you want to smoke or chew and try to avoid them or do something else to break it.

good luck to everyone out there trying to quit.

Just a little update....

I have dropped 28lbs since making this post. I am lifting weights 3 times per week and running 2 times per week. My diet is pretty solid, but I am not getting crazy with it. If I want to eat something unhealthy, I do. High protein, reduced fat, reduced carbs, little to no sugar has been the ticket for me. I have put on a ton of muscle mass and experienced great strength gains. The only supps I take are fish oil, a multivitamin, and protein post-workout. Hopefully I can stick with it!!

Good job man! My wife and I started P90X on Monday. She's doing the WeightWatchers diet and I'm mostly just eating alot less and watching what I eat a little more than before. It doesn't take much for me to start shedding weight but I always seem to fall off after a few weeks. This time is different though, we're going to the beach in August and I'll be damn if I'm gonna be the fat kid on the beach lol.

If you are trying to quit dipping or smoking I would strongly suggest using the patch or some other type of nicotine therapy. When you wean yourself off nicotine it makes it much easier to quit. I quit dipping 2 years ago and smoking just over 1 year ago. Quitting dipping wasn't bad cause I was still smoking, but quitting smoking was really tough. I used the patch and followed the directions exactly like they were printed and I have not had a cigarette since. Don't take any shortcuts or mess around with this stuff, just do it exactly how it was intended to be done!!!
