    Seems like 75% of the guys that come back from boot have all of sudden started, my recruiter does, seems a bunch of others around that dip as well.

    A lot of 11Bs do it. I did it for a period of time when I was enlisted. I did it 'cause I liked the buzz, but man, that shit looks ugly as hell.

    I'm about the only Marine in my whole unit who doesn't dip. Or maybe the whole Marine Corps.

    It's disgusting.

    The first time I take a drink from a spit cup, and I know it is going to happen, I am going to flip the fuck out on everybody. Then i'll realize i'm a PFC, and probably get punched in the face by a bunch of NCO's.

    I am worried more about drinking from a spit cup in Iraq than I am of dying.

    Yep I never picked it up either. I know guys use it for being out in the field and patrolling trying to stay awake but I manged with out it. Of course once you start it just becomes a habit like smoking.

    fucking :werd: i agree with tehkinggovenor
    dipping is fucking disgusting, they put fiberglass in that shit so it cuts up ur gums and gets into ur bloodstream faster. And dip cups are NASTY as fuck, and they fucking start to stink. One of my friends had to room with a guy that dipped and the first time the guy knocked over one of his dip tins(he used old vegetable tins to spit in) they were throwing down. /rant/worthless story of BEQ fight over dip

    A lot of the engineers on my old ship (in the Coast Guard) would dip, that way they didn't have to go to the fantail of the ship to smoke. They could just stay in the engine room and spit in a soda bottle or something. Tobacco wasn't supposed to be used inside the skin of the ship, but these guys could hide their dip in their lips pretty good.

    The thing that got our command really pissed was when someone left their spit cup in the forward rec room and left it there, we took a slight roll and it spilled on the carpet. No one owned up to it either.

    Dipping is just plain nasty. A lot of my friends dip when they are drinkin', I've only tried it a couple times but I always feel sick afterwards. No matter how hard I try, I end up swallowing a small amount which focks up my stomach. I've tried the pouches once, but they still make me feel sick. Dip is teh suck.

    I used to dip before I joined the military, then after basic I got where I couldn't stand it anymore.

    I only dipped a few times before basic but now I do it all the time. BTW rumors are true, I'm an 11bangbang and I can't think of more than two guys in my company who don't.
