    I just can't seem to give this up again. I gave it up while with my GF of a year but stopped and bought a can on my way home the night she broke up
    with me. :wtc: I've been hooked again ever since.

    Patch?
    Hypnosis?
    Psychiatrist?
    Mint chew?

    Nothing's worked to this point but I'm open for ideas.

    Old thread but nobody responded and I can relate so here it goes.

    I dipped for 5 years straight and I quit cold turkey. I used bubble gum and weight lifting to break my habit. I relapsed twice during my quitting. One time I started back up for a month, then quit again then a few months later I dipped for a few days before quitting to this day. (its been 2 years straight without a dip).

    pro tip:

    whenever you have a craving for dip, pop a few pieces of gum in your mouth or suck on ice.

    if i can quit cold turkey about doing a can a day for 5 years, so can you. it just takes willpower and you have to realize why you want to quit.

    If you were going to stop driving, how would you do it? Would you only drive when you are stressed? Would you only drive after dinner, or with friends, but not by yourself? Or would you stop driving?

    As far as the physical part goes, the patch worked for me. All 3 stages. Been off the smokes over a year now and i miss it every day.

    Same thing here, except the only time I really crave it is when I drink. Other than that the craving is easy to fight.
