Chewing tobacco or dipping?

 In my attempt to finally quit cigarettes once and for all, I have started dipping skoal.  I know it's not a feminine thing so I only do it when I'm home or in the car, but it's working and I have not had a cigarette in 47 days.  Has anyone here ever tried dipping and did you hide it from everyone?

My DH uses dip. I tried once after running out of smokes. I puked. Have you tried vaping instead? I cant , I am allergic to the propelyn glycol but its better for you than dipping

Yah that is no better then smoking...
So instead of lung cancer you are raising your risk of tongue, esophageal, and lip cancer.

My kids have a friend who chews tobacco..I think that's what you mean..he uses SO much he can barely talk, and he leaves his.....spit cups all over the friggin place. 

I'm a nurse and have a thick skin for gross, the spit cups with his regurgitated chew in them takes the cake. 

If it's a stepping stone for you, I say do what you gotta do, you know? 

But if you're using that to replace smoking you're just changing the location of the cancer. (sorry..to be so blunt but really that's the truth)

 My dh is a trucker and he dips alot since he's not allowed to smoke in his truck.  I started dipping with him about 8 yrs ago and I usually only do it a couple times a day...I enjoy the taste alot better than cigarettes but that's just me.
