  • Interests: My family and my Harley.I joined this site in March of 2012, it took me until December 2012 to finally quit, suck it up and post roll. I had won win I hit 100 right? So I stopped posting roll and walked away from the accountability that held me quit. I failed on my own. September 2014, coming back and having a rough start, this is it. I can NEVER stop being held accountable. I don't want to die all cause I put some worm dirt in my lip. Want to watch my kids have kids and hell maybe their kids. My LIFE DEPENDS ON STAYING QUIT. Bottom line.

Thanks for the support of this site. I would like to ask, even though its probably already been asked, but will there be an iPhone/droid app? Can anyone set this up or have I just become that whiny ass bitch with the iPhone? Day26 also no sleep for 2 days 'zombie'
There isn't one... yet. But it's definitely on our radar screen.
Just keep clicking and scrolling and zooming you'll be to busy with the phone to be busy with the can. _
I would like an iPhone App! Nice way to post roll call.

Good morning y'all. I know some of you know my story but some may not. Perhaps someone is stopping in this site and just thinking about quitting. I hope you make that choice and kill your can for good.

Seven years ago today I lay on a hospital bed at M.D. Anderson Cancer center in Houston. In the exact spot I had held my dip for so long they found a squamous cell carcinoma spot. I was told it was directly related to my dipping. That was near the end of September.

Now it was time to take care of it. My operation lasted some eleven hours. A large section of gum matter, three teeth and thirty seven lymphnodes were removed. My jawbone was shaved to half of it's thickness and a plate with screws added for reinforcement. A section of flesh was removed from my leg  and now and forever resides in my mouth.

My recovery will never be complete as I have pain everyday from the surgery. When I wake in the mornings my neck has drawn tight and I have to stretch it. Somedays it refuses to loosen. If I hold my head a certain way for any length of time, it tightens. Being a welder I usually hold my head a certain way everyday.  I will forever have this piece of leg in my mouth and no one who has had this "pleasure" will know what wonderful breath and taste you can have with leg in your mouth, especially when you wake in the morning.

I hope this is not to commercially for you, but in cas you haven't read my story or seen my pictures, got to my website and see what dipping did for me. If you are visiting here for the first time and merely considering quitting, please PLEASE do so. And don't forget to use every resource this site provides. I have been MIA in helping you guys and for that I apologize. I hope you all know I am willing to share with, talk with, any of you and would be deeply honored to help with your quit.

Take care, God bless and have a wonderful dip free remainder of your life.
Thought I would bump this back to the top of the page.
Is this viewable to the folks that are not members ,the lurkers??
If not it should be.
It is.
Anyone lurking and wondering if you should quit I highly suggest a stop by ODT's page. I spent some time there in my decision to quit. Very Powerful!!

Quit today, your life does in fact depend on it.....

A thought -- (since I've now had 9 days to use my brain instead of filling my free time [and lip] with dip...)

The wife has hounded me for years about quitting...I didn't care. She told me all the bad things it'l do to me...I didn't care. She told me that it will kill me...I wasn't willing to care. I lied to her over and over about quitting...or "it's the last can" or "today is my last day"...and I didn't really care.

So then I completely level with the wife and I find KTC...and a group of badasses... so I exchange some numbers and PM's and can't wait to post that damn roll every day...so I honor my promise and not let my new brothers down -- mind you, my wife has been present for much of my 'cope'-ing and this is a group of people I've never met -- kindof weird.

Yeah, I need her but I guess I need you bunch of quitters too.

Here's to the quit.
We're not sure why it works, we just know that it does. You get it.

Glad to have you, and congrats on your new quit. 9 days is a HUUUGGGEE achievement. And today is even more important. Welcome.

I have a two sons who both chewed and have both quit. My oldest (24) quit when I did. My youngest who was also military quit before his first child was born. Damn sure wish I had done that. I've done chantix, welbutrin, and beer to no avail. Finally just said fuck it, if my boys can do it I damn sure better be able to. I appreciate the support and hope to be able to give back down the road. It's likely to be a bit rocky, but lifes a bitch and then you quit chewing.
