Use either the patch or the gum. Your body is chemically dependant, you may need to slowly reduce the nicotine levels your body is used to. The gum works great cause there are different levels and you can decrease the amount of nicotine you take in over several weeks. Good luck!!!

I took chantix to quit smoking and dipping. It was like a magic pill for me. Haven't touched tobacco in almost 6 years.

Thanks guys I just have to get over the hump. I am sure I will pack a lip once in a great while.
If you do that, you'll be back to chewing the same amount you did before you quit in no time. If you don't take the chantix, use the nicotine gum. Its like having a dip in. You bite down on it a few times then tuck it in your lip.

Honestly after 48 hours the cravings start to go away. After 5 days they become less and less after 2 weeks it's like you never even did it. After a month you've successfully stopped. The hard part is after going a year or two without it and you decide well I'll just smoke one or throw in a little pinch you'll have to start the process all over again.

I loved the dreams. I've never done drugs so I guess it was as close to an acid trip as I would ever get. I used to wake up laughing and asking myself "Did that really just happen!?!" The only thing negative it ever did to me was it gave me heartburn for a week or two.

He speaks the truth. Don't try it again once you have her licked.

Good luck to you.I been chewing snuff for 31 years,stopped smoking about 10 years ago cold turkey but the chewing part to me seems tougher to do,I did stop chewing for maybe about a year or so but just can't seem to quit it.I tried the tobacco free stuff but it just didn't work,maybe one of these days i'll be able to quit the snuff,who knows.

I quit over a month ago and I still get cravings. Its hard to overcome those cravings but during work I have a bag of sunflower seeds at my desk that seem to do the trick.
I wasnt as bad as you though, a can would last me atleast a week.
I think the real test will be fishing/hunting season. I always enjoyed a good dip when outdoors.
