That is great news - I know what you mean about not having that nagging thought at midnight that you really have to stop this nastiness - you really did it and it sounds like you're every bit as proud as you deserve to be.

gold is great!!

CONGRATULATIONS SCOTT
11 MONTHS!!
I wonder if I can fit in 11 of my little green dragons?!
Onward to Gold

~ 271 days free after 40+ years not.

Sally, 11 little dragons in one straight line tends to cause the screen to spread to the maximum causing those reading the page the images appear on to have to scroll left and right to read. I've put them in rows. John

Just dropped in for some light reading this morning and saw someone had attached my diary to someone quitting dip. I hope this story of freedom helps.

At 400+ days of freedom I never want for nicotine. My life is all about life and nothing about searching out my next hit of nicotine. It is easy at this point and always will be as long as I never make the fatal mistake of complacency.

For anyone new out there in the first days and weeks....it gets monumentally better than it is for you right now.

Never Take Another Dip, Puff, Patch, Pill, Gum, etc.

Way to Kick the Can!

After 164 days I can say the best part about quitting is simply no longer being a slave to a chemical. It no longer runs my life.

Thanks for blazing the trail!

Just wanted to bring this up to the top just in case any dippers out there are looking for an example.

You see I was using two cans a day when I quit. Thought I would dip forever and then I found this site. It has now been over 560 days and I NEVER want dip anymore.

I can do all the things I used to do while dipping and I am better at them.

Thank you all for your continued stories. I still come here about once a month just to remind myself by reading all the newbie stories.

I am coming up on Day 700 at the end of the month. If you would have told me that two years ago I would have laughed at you.

It can be done. It gets easy. I can't believe it took me so long to quit. Trying all of those stupid quitting aids. I tried them all and it wasn't until I gutted out my cold turkey quit that I finally made it.

You can make it too. Congrats to all on this board and thanks to Joel and the managers. You saved my life!

May God have a special place in heaven for you all.

A 90 minute dip - wow - I can't imagine a 90 minute puff! Good for you and congrats on almost a thousand days!

Have not been here in ages. Just wanted to shout out to everyone who is just starting. When you all reach this point you'll wonder why it took you so long to quit in the first place.

It truly is peaceful.
