So far 3 months without Copenhagen

I'm going on 3 months without a dip. Still get cravings now and then for a dip, but haven't given in. It's been hard to quit after dipping for so long. I enjoyed it a lot, but my health was/is more important to me now. Just wanted to give you guys an update.

Chemical dependence sucks. I quit smoking in 2007. I don't even think about it anymore.

It's a horrible way to go ...

Congrats on that! Quitting smoking was easily one of the hardest things I've done. I never really understood addiction... until I had one. Good luck!

Great job! I've been dipping Kodiak for about 15 years. I quit for about 6 months nearly 4 years ago; dunno what happened, but I started back. Stupid me.

Keep up the good work!

Chewed tobacco for about 14 years. Tried to quit several times to no avail. Mostly because other people were telling me to (*****ing at me).

One day in 1996 I ran out and needed to drive to town to get some. I just decided no, I'm not spending any more of my dang money on that stuff. Stopped right then and never looked back.

It works when you are stopping for yourself and not outer pressures. Make your own decision, control your own life.

You can do it.

I am over 15 years now without a dip.

I had stopped a few times for several months - and then in one weak moment took 1 small dip - and that lead to a few more years of chewing.

I still get the pain in my jaw when I see a wall full of tobacco products. It is strange that even after this many years - and even right now as I type this post - I want to take a whole can of Kodiak and shove it in my mouth.

Good luck.

Yeah I still have the craving to buy a can when I go to the store. But I've told myself no and fight the urge. I do miss it though.

At least I've backed down to Skoal mint pouches. Not great but at least it's easier to control.

Hang in there. You can do it. And the results will be worth it. I had a friend die from mouth cancer. Horrible way to go.

Ouch. Sorry to hear that. That's one major reason I quit among others.

Did you gain any weight?
When I quit chewing Taylor's pride I gained about 15 lbs.

I am convinced, the tobacco companies add stuff to their product to make it more addicting. Chewing tobacco was the hardest to quit. Tobacco free 30 + years.

Good for you. I had a cousin who used Copenhagen for years. He would develop a sore on the spot in his mouth where he kept it, and he would move it to the other side of his mouth. By the time that sore healed he would have another in the new spot. We talked about how maybe his body was trying to tell him something. He laughed it off, saying that only people who smoked got cancer.

After he was diagnosed with mouth cancer about half his mouth and his tongue was removed, he blew his brains out. Only an idiot would use that crap.
