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?"

"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
"Join a meetup group in your area.
I did that a while back when I was new to my current area (SLC, Utah).
Met a lot of nice people that way.
If your confidence is a little shaky, I recommend working out--hit those…"
