Gonna start saving $40 per week...quitting the snuff

After roughly 20 years of hardcore dipping, today marks the end of an era, and an expensive one at that. I dip just over a can of Copenhagen a day, and the cost of a can is up to $5.15.

The difference between now and the other times that I "tried" to quit is that I finally really do want to quit. Got my head and my heart set on it.

Wish me luck and I promise not to post during withdrawals.

I'll try to be nicer when you start trying to be smarter.

Good luck $40 and better health will be your rewards (plus that is a gross habit)

Best of Luck!!! Walking away from any bad habit is hard...but much easier when you're ready for it. Good for you!

Best of luck, Pete

Thanks bud!

Honestly, I have no idea what I'm in for. Everything I do is associated with "taking a dip" and tailored around it...

-Gotta use the bathroom, get a dip.
-Gonna take a shower, get a dip.
-Have a meeting coming up in 20 minutes, I can squeeze a dip in.
-Gotta run to the store, let me get a dip.
-Going to check the mail, let me get a dip.
-Gonna make a long drive...calculate hours and how much snuff I'll need for the trip.
-Spit dip out to brush teeth in morning, get another dip to make the 15 minute ride to the bus depot.
-Get to office, hurry up and down Diet Coke so I'll have a spit can to dip all day long.
-Walk into convenience store Tuesday morning, and without a word from me, clerk puts my 5 cans of Copenhagen on the counter and exclaims "Where were you yesterday?" (fresh snuff arrives Monday afternoon)
-Walk in convenience store Friday evening, same deal, clerk puts three cans on the counter...gets me back to Monday.

I could go on and on...

I'll try to be nicer when you start trying to be smarter.

Your convenience store owner is going to track you down. He won't be able to send his kids to the best colleges with the hit in income he's going to see.



They say it takes 3 weeks to make a habit. I don't know if that includes the time of withdrawl or not. Good luck in fighting off the demons and get through that first month.
