  1. 2 weeks today! Super grateful for all your support and to be nicotine free for 14 days. Feeling SO much better than I have been. A little foggy but otherwise great.

  2. Looks like there are quite a few of us New Year’s quitters. Day 6 here. I am using the patch 24/7. So far so good…besides the weird dreams. I definitely have anger issues when quitting so I am giving my family a break and using the patch. Whatever it takes!

    • Congrats Tim – great start. Please realize that when you finally pull off that patch that’s when you’re going to go through some withdrawals. Don’t want to be a downer, but wanted you to know what to expect. We’ll be here when you rip it off too!

  3. Day 6 and just putting along 1 day at a time. Still having irritability issues from time to time. Still nic free and planning to stay that way!

  4. Day 13… and the fog is lifting! I went to the dentist yesterday to get a cleaning for the first time in over a year and was told my teeth and gums are in great shape… not one single problem. That is after 30 years of chewing and I hate to say it, but that makes it even harder to quit! I almost wish he told my gums are jacked… or something like that to help me stay focused. I need to re-read the 100 reasons to quit chewing again for motivation and a laugh!

  5. 3rd day without skoal long cut wintergreen, jakes mint chew helping with the urges and its pretty tasty too

  6. Day 2. Embracing the Suck

  7. Day 2, doing well on the surface, just underneath, bat shit crazy urges/craves. I keep fighting them off and take a deep breath, pat my self on the back…

  8. Day 34. Stay strong Eric B…Learn that you can’t control the unknown. Everything will work out for you.

  9. Day 31 – No getting the cravings that I had, depends on environment and trigger events. Stress level is at an all time high right now on 2 fronts. Work is a bit shaky and I feel that I may be in the soup line by the end of the month unless something comes through. Been working on several leads but nobody wants to discuss recruiting in January. The other is that I am scheduled to see an Oral Surgeon on Thursday for pathology exam of an area on the hard palate (roof of mouth). Barely slept last night worrying what would be my fate. I trust in God that he will not give me more than I can handle. Stay Strong Everyone!! Let’s shut down those tobacco company slaughter houses for our own kids and the generations of the future!

  10. Meant to say Bryan and Aaron! You guys can do this!

  11. Day 8… Mind is still a mess and sleep schedule is still messed up. having trouble with that.

    • Hang in there Sean. You got this. I might suggest mixing up your routine. Go for a walk after dinner or add in some type of health activity. I’ve had to modify my schedule around just to avoid certain triggers. Stay strong.

  12. Day 6 life is getting better. Made it through first day
    Back at work. I’ll fight another day for freedom.

  13. Day 35. Don’t remember who said it, but should have done this in the spring. Mother nature won’t stop me . For self family and friends. NIC FREE IN 15.

  14. Day 56: another day nic free! Keep up the great work everyone, stay strong!

    • Stay strong all. Have not had a urge like I did this morning. Whiyeah knuckle driving in the snow.God how I wanted a rub. Screw you nicotine, I’ll win. Thank God and all of you for this site.

      • Luckily we haven’t had too much snow this year so far. I would always head out to clear the driveway at 5AM with a big lipper in. I stashed some grinds in my toolbox just incase the urge hits.

  15. Day 41, Staying strong will not lose. The big difference between this quit and other so called quits is that I’m not sneaking around and chewing. Truly tobacco free and love it.

    • Great job Erik! For me it has been odd hanging with family so much. I use to find ways to get out and have a fix. Now that I’m clean, I finding the extra time to have long conversations and help out. Big adjustment for whole family.
