My name is Jason.  I have been chewing on and off since I was about 18 and I turn 40 next March. 

Like a lot of you I grew up in a farm town and the first dip was taken because one of my farming buddies asked if I wanted to try it. I did and that had me hooked.

Throughout the years I have quit and started back up over and over.  I have tried hypnosis, therapy, acupuncture and they (or I) have always failed.

I met my wife about 16 years ago and told her that I would quit chewing.  Didn’t happen I just hid it from her.  Kept telling her I would quit when we had kids and didn’t happen, I just kept hiding it from her.  I had said all along that I need a support group of people who chewed that can help me through this and so the last time she caught me chewing I did some research and found this site.

Today is my day 1 quit and I am ready to take back my life from dip.  I am ready to be able to be honest with my wife and not hide it from her anymore.  I am ready to quit for my kids so I can watch them grow old.  And I am ready to quit for myself.  No more Dip!!

We are in the same quit group....if you need me let me know...if you are gonna cave and go back on your promise...you had better call me or someone. 

I had been dipping 33 years until 12 days ago.....I quit for me...not my wife, not my kids, not anyone else....I quit for me and it takes one day at a time.  You can do this.

Hi Jason,

Welcome to one of the best decisions you can make in life. I too was very much a ninja dipper and hated myself for it. When it was finally time to take back my life I fully embraced the accountability that KTC provides. Be sure to get your daily roll post promise in early every day. WUPP EDD (Wake Up Piss Post Every Damn Day) is the mantra here and it works as long as you stick with it. I ain't gonna lie, the first days and weeks suck! Read all that you can on the site about what to expect as your body rids itself of its dependence on the nicotine poison. Drink lots of water to help flush your system out. And most importantly get connected with other quitters who will be sending you their phone numbers. In addition to posting roll daily, texting your promise to stay quit to other quitters will be a huge help to you staying quit.

Where did you get those big internet muscles?
The asshole quotient here on KTC is too damn high

@JLit .... @Sand44 said everything pretty well. I was a ninja dipper as well. I went a step further and flat out lied to my wife about it. I’d tell her I was quit. Sooner or later she’d find evidence and I’d lie again. In the end, I had to make the decision for me. That’s the important part. It has to be for you. That’s the only way it will last. We all have your back as long as you are honest with us. Reach out to us before you even consider caving in and taking another nicotine hit. My digits are only a PM away as well. Remember to make your promise as soon as you wake up. That’s key here. Ask questions. Post. Ask more questions. Form relationships here. It helps a lot. Let’s get this journey going brother!!!! Just let me add too...my quit date was my 40th b-day as well. It was time to grow up!!

Welcome Jason

You’ve come to the right place, and I’m glad to see you’ve made it on roll. This place will absolutely work, as long as you are ready to step up and really make an effort to understand how and why KTC works.

Your story is pretty much the exact same as many others on here.. we even have a term for it ..”ninja dipper.”   Coming clean to your wife will be essential here, it’s going to be a rough road, but this is the first step in coming to terms with your addiction.

Post roll every morning bright and early. This is your promise to remain nicotine free for the day.. because we take it one day at a time here ..forever is a scary word and just doesn’t resonate with us. Make an effort to reach out to your group members and vets alike, exchange digits, build up an accountability network..you’re going to need it. My digits are a PM away.

Proud to quit with you.
