dipping smokeless tobacco may cause cancer and stains your teeth
I know that smokeless tobacco is bad for you but I can't help myself
I am an addict.
I am addicted to snuff or dip (sometimes called smokeless tobacco)
I do not want to die from mouth cancer so I have decided that I am going to quit dipping.
I have tried before and failed, but I think I can do it this time.
Please keep me in your prayers because unless you have been an addict before you have no idea how hard it is to quit,I have physical withdrawls when I quit and the cravings are horrible, I guess I should have thought about that before I made myself sick starting dipping again 7 years ago after I had been tobacco free for 2 years.
I will not use tobacco of any form anymore.
A few reasons to quit dipping
- It is disgusting
- It is expensive
- Mouth Cancer looks like a bad way to die.
- I love my teeth
- My gum are receeding (I have gum disease)
- I want to enjoy my future grandchildren
- I want to improve my health
- I don't want to be a slave to tobacco addiction anymore
- I want to be a role model for my children.
- I'm a singer and it looks bad dipping
- I hate yellow teeth
- I can't afford tobacco anymore
I hope you all will keep me in your prayers as I battle this addiction, I have dipped everyday for the last 7 years, but I believe that if you truly want to quit that you can and I do want to quit so I have.
Smoking isn't cool and dipping tobacco isn't cool.
I want to be cool - I do not want to be an addict anymore.
I will succeed - I will overcome this addiction.
I mean it tells you right on the can that it may cause cancer, and that it is not a safe alternative to smoking so I am gonna take that warning serious.
I am done with tobacco - If I have an urge to dip I will
- Call a friend
- Do some work
- Take a walk
- Chew some gum
- Brush my teeth
- Anything to get my mind over the craving.
- walk my dog
- write a hub
- pull my hair out
Thanks for reading the hub - please leave comments below and I will be updating this hub every time I get the urge to dip,I will let you know what I did to get me through the craving etc.
I will keep you all posted
