After 16 years, i finally decided to give it up. Im on about week 4 now. What are some of the alternatives that you guys are using? I am on the Grinds coffee pouches now, and they are ok. I tried Baccoff, but wasnt real impressed.

I would like to find something close to Cope Long Cut. Im not a fan of any minty flavors.

Walmart carries Smokey Mountain. It’s a non-tobacco non-nicotine substitute. I have been doing it for a year and its ok. It’s not Cope or Grizzly or Skoal, but it works for me.

Good luck. Stay strong.

So after 4 weeks the nicotine addiction is gone, and your problem is just with the habit of putting a dip in your mouth. How about trying something completely different, as opposed to something that mimics the habit you are trying to break?

Get yourself a bag of sunflower seeds. Or maybe chewing gum. Keep toothpicks around if you need to.

After nearly another month, things are still good. I am still using the Grinds coffee pouches, but only using maybe 2-3 pouches a day.

I used to have trouble falling asleep, then staying asleep. Since the tobacco is gone, those problems are gone as well. It has been surprisingly refreshing.

Keep it up Big Country. It gets easier. There will be times when you’re tested, but you can push through them. You’ll feel better about yourself when you do.

This is fantastic news! Sometimes people don't fully grasp what type of a stimulant they are dealing with until it's gone. For those that aren't as far along is you, I'd recommend they try https://www.northerner.com/us/zyn but you're past that and now just have to wrestle with the oral fixation. Don't chew on too many toothpicks please as that can cause all sorts of problems if you do it regularly. Whatever you do, don't grab the bag of candy or bad stuff happens. I see this mostly with smokers and not dippers though.

Congrats on the progress. Stick with the coffee if you can.
