Hello, I am a new member from Middle TN. I am 35 and have been using snuff tobacco since I was 14. When I started it was as much for being rebellious or "feeling like a man" than any other reason.…Continue
I never had a problem quitting tobacco (cigs), the hard part was not having the "next one". ;-)
My point is, it is simply a case of mind over matter. One really has to want to quit.
I smoked 3 packs a day for over 20 years and…"
"I stopped chewing simply because I found it disgusting, even when I was packing a dip. I'm back to nicotine in the form of e-cigs (I'm a raving psychopath without it) but I was clean for almost a year after quitting chew. Nicotine gum…"
"Looking to quit m self, been telling my self that the past 4 years, but I really want to give it another shot. I tried switching to pouches to try weaning my self off, but that just made it easier to hide it, and I'd put a pouch in before bed…"
"Thanks. And no I have never slept with a dip but I have dozed off for a few minutes with one. You got me there! Have you ever needed a dip before a trip to the john and then nearly mess yourself because you couldn't find your can?"
"Thank you, men, for sharing your experiences. Inspiring testimonies, I am digesting you all's input and advice and plan to implement some of these ideas in my journey to lay down the can. Hambone21, your story is particularly inspiring, I…"
"For me I had to set a goal that required not using tobacco and have a touchstone person.
I wanted do martial arts. So I needed the extra capacity robbed of me by tobacco and called my girlfriend to just say hi and talk for the period I would…"
"Hi Chris. I have successfully quit snuff. I dipped for many years and I absolutely loved it. I was 40 yrs old at the time. It was Dec 31, 2011 and I decided that I was too old and had been using for way too long. I decided that I no longer wanted to…"
"Hello, I am in a similar situation. I quit smoking for my daughter when she had RSV as a baby. Unfortunately, I quit smoking by dipping. I have always hated dipping, and still do despite having grizzly wg on me at all times.. I thought since I hated…"
Hello, I am a new member from Middle TN. I am 35 and have been using snuff tobacco since I was 14. When I started it was as much for being rebellious or "feeling like a man" than any other reason. Twenty-one years later rebellion has become addiction. A lot of time and my ways of thinking have changed greatly since 14, but the tobacco is still a part of my life. There are a lot of "remedies" available for smokers, I haven't found any exclusive to oral tobacco. Do any of you men have useful…See More

This is another question I have regarding going into a Systems Engineering graduate program.Engineers have their tools. I presume that the same can be said for systems engineers. What tools should I read up on that can help me get a leg up during my program.As an example. In my Engineering undergrad, MATLab and SciLab were used to an extent as well as MultiSim,LTSPice etc. So for Systems Engineering, is Microsoft Office something I will have to become good friends with. How about SysMil, UML?See More
"I concur with Penelope's analysis. This is technically correct bad Latin.
Virile can be a nominative neuter singular adjective acting as a noun (substantive) - the manly thing.
As it is nominative, it can be the subject of agitur. The manly…"
"The darkest period in my life was in my teens as well. It gets better, but only if you work on it. I still have my rough days (who doesn't?), but the difference between just a few years ago and life now is night and day. …"
