    I can't imagine how shitty basic is going to be without my Skoal. :rofl: White trash right? Curious how many of you do either and if basic helped you quit or get worse after..

    youll be busy enough in basic to make it without it...
     
  3. don't do either but plenty of people do one, the other, or both. both are disgusting habits and i hate seeing officers do it.

    I started smoking in A-School.

    Didn't get interested nor had I tried any illegal drugs till I got into the corps hearing about everyone else's crazy days before the corps. At that point, I thought to myself, my god, there is so much shit I've missed out on. The first time I got drunk was at a military Christmas party when my superiors kept handing me drink after drink after drink.

    Neither, but a lot of people do it. People were dying during WLC. Couldn't have a smoke till 2000hrs. :rofl:

    I haven't had a dip in over 3 months now. I would like to say that I'm done for good but I know I'll start again once I'm in Afghanistan.

    I remember sending my brother logs of Cope to Iraq because he'd sell them for 15 - 20$ a piece.

    you'll be fine. i quit dipping altogether in bct/ait but started back up in iraq. now i'm back off of it.

    there's just nothing better than a fat ass dip during a hot day in the desert.

    The commericals I see on AFN convinced me that it was a bad idea.

    Every once in a while the Drill Instructors would walk in smellin like cigs and my mouth would start to salivate. I honestly dont think a day went by that I didnt think about a single puff. First thing I did when I got off the island was smoke a cig. If your lookin to quit the military is the last place to be :p
