I know quitting that is going to be a struggle.
    man I had the easiest time quitting Dip. I chewed for like 2 years and one night I was getting ready to go to a part and I put in a dip and I just start throwing up and throwing up and when I was done I took the can threw it to a buddy of mine that chewed and I was like I'm done. had a little bit of a rough go for the next couple days but yeah haven't touched it since.

    Oof. I'm all about cooking steak but not so all about ordering steak at a restaurant since they generally don't strike me as being any better than what I whip up in my backyard.

    What's your go to order at a restaurant meat and cook at home meat?
    All about the burgers. If not that some sort of pork product.

    I somehow dipped the perfect amount and short enough time , that even 3,4 years into the habit i could get buzzes!


    I've quote for about 3 years now as I mentioned and I still think, well what if I buy a celebratory 1/year tin at new years or bears training camp, etc

    Something like that.


    I tried it 4 years ago at bears TC after not dipping for 2 months... immediately dipping every day again.


    The hardest thing for me is stopping at gas stations to fill my tank. I still to this day think about it about 20 percent of the time if I had to guess.

    Sooooo many times I've said in a Friday, "gonna finish this can then be done." and the plan is to go the weekend without it then not touch it. Then Monday morning I buy one on my way to work lol. It's the driving part that's rough. I'll go all weekend without it and it's not that bad.

    I feel you on gas stations. Took me a long time to get used to not going in and buying beer every day lol

    yeah I didn't mean that was a way to try quitting. for me for some reason that was how I ended up being done with it. I was chewing every day anywhere from half a can to a can depending on what classes I had for the day. I don't know if there was something wrong with the can or if it just hit me wrong but, yeah once it touched my lip it made me sick and I was just like nope never doing that again lol.

    Since i moved to Tampa I've been pretty let down by the craft beers I've tried here. However I found this red ale called Diver Down. Its pretty damn good. Like Spliff I tend to seek out a high ABV. Its 8.0. I want bang for my buck. I don't need to slam a 6 pack to catch a buzz like with a generic beer. 2 of those and I'm feeling toasty. It is a very smooth beer. Easy to drink.

    Has a nice score of 83

    As a dipper for 30 years, it literally took me 15 minutes to figure out what copey short was. Even googled that ****. It's called copenhagen snuff.

    For what it's worth, you should give redseal natural fine cut a try. I was a copenhagen guy for a long time. Then a buddy introduced me to a less expensive, larger packed can of dip that really does rival the taste of Cope. Haven't been back to cope for over 7 years.

    Man, that looks good. I’m thinking it would pair nicely with a little “Cathedral”.

    Damn, heavy dip crowd, lol.

    I did that **** when I was 15 and moved Missouri. I stopped when I was 16 and moved out.

    Like a midwest thing or something maybe..

    Copenhagen Wintergreen long cut was all I used really, tried the fine cut a couple of times and it didn't work out. Couldn't keep it under control lol.

    I stuck with that because it has the highest nicotine level of the readily available dips iirc, and was still able to get a buzz with it the entire time (heavy chaw, would keep it in for 5, 10 mins max, guess it worked to keep my tolerance down)

    That one looks delicious.I do prefer nice beer, been buying a 2 or 4 pack kf weekly releases from Energy City Brewing in Batavia, IL a lot this summer, a lot of good options.

    Once in a while I enjoy a couple super light beers, just for the water refreshment of them rather then being really flavorful or high abv

    Lite Thinking by Pollyanna (Lemont, IL) is the best light beer I've ever had, id recommend anyone to at least try it.

    Idk I assumed you're from the Illinois area before the move, so you'll be familiar with these areas. How are you liking the move, was it career related?

    Low cal, low carb, less bloat.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink most beers.

    As for steak, I’m a snob. Never big enough, too expensive, never cooked like I can.

    I go for the burgers mainly or a good chop.

    At home, lots of steaks though. 20 oz ribeye, baked tater. Gets no better. I also love a nice, thick pork steak.

    If I'm going for less bloat in my alcohol, I'll just go with some good vodka mixed with fruit juice.
