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…"

"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
"Have you heard about Corrine Brown? She of course is up for reelection. And, she is in trouble with the law for using a non profit as a slush fund for her campaign. Her GOP opponent is pretty solid. Things are finally starting to look up."
I saw a young man today wearing a tee shirt that was a bit confusing -- until I figured it out. His tee shirt had this on the front:MESSIAHWRESTLINGI finally figured it out: He goes to Messiah College and is on their wrestling team.

This is a LGBTQ+ group. All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled. The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities. This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered. And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not…See More
