Chewing tobacco addiction
I know someone with a chewing tobacco addiction, he goes through 2 cans of snuff per day. For the last 20 years.

How does one go about quitting?

Does he have a high change of getting mouth cancer?

Hi thanks. Did you just start taking it after quitting cold turkey? Did it help? How long were you on it?

Long time dipper here. I've quite numerous times and I think the longest was like a year.anyways what I did was switch to punches. Then I switched to snus. But not sure if ya know this or not but the cancer is caused by the combustion process. There was a study showing that you have the same risk of cancer as someone who doesnt dip.

Tell him to try second hand chew. There is a lot less bad things in that type of chew. It's even pre-moistened if you get to it early enough.

Re: Chewing tobacco addiction
I've been chewing Copenhagen snuff since I was 14. I just turned 62 yesterday. It was $.32 a can. Could by it myself at a trailer store in Hammond, IN. The indian family that owned never carded you as long as you acted normal and not nervous. Went to the dentist a couple years ago and had them do a test on my mouth for cancer. All was good. All my uncles chewed and never had cancer. It's all in the GENES!!

Get him a copy of the book linked below, it's called "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" but the principles are exactly the same no matter the addiction (especially because it's still tobacco). God led me to this book several years ago to quit smoking, and I was able to use the same principles to I learned from the book to kick other addictions..it all comes down to understanding, being able to recognize, and breaking the psychological aspects of addiction. Whether one is successful or not will always come down to that.

The real trick is to learn to think critically- ask more, and better questions- question every little detail. Who, what, when, where, why, and how? And how do these things relate to the facts I've already established, and observations made?

Sorry to say but I've heard too much of dipping at that level and mouth cancer. His desire to keep his face should be motivation. Perhaps spiritual path and/or health program.

I cant remember this guys name but hes an oral pathologist at the university of Louisville. Based on his study he doesnt see an increase cancer rates. Now 2 cans a day might be a different story idk. I bought a container with a timer on it that I set so I can regulate my dipping. I do about 3 or 4 dips. If you're really wanting to know more try to catch the guys name in this video [link to m.youtube.com (secure)]

Stop buying chewing tobacco. Stop putting it in your mouth. It's really that simple but first you have to actually want to quit.

Re: Chewing tobacco addiction
i quit chewing by switching to vaping.

vaping allows you to take a hit when you feel withdrawal symptoms, which hit hard at random tkmes of the day.

overtime i lowered the dosage until i got to zero nicotine juice.

after that i just stopped, which was easy because i never smoked or liked to smoke.

took about 3 months and i had been dipping a can a day for 15 years.
