    Stoked to see a military thread on here. Figure if I’m going to find people that used vaping as a means to quit dip it’s gotta be with my people. Or anyone you know that used vaping to quit dip? Haven’t dipped in the last 7 days since I got my vape in the mail here, seems like it’s working well to get me off it. But no one talks about how vaping has worked on getting them off smokeless tobacco. It’s always all about getting them off cigarettes.

    Welcome to the VU. I used to dip and smoke. Dipped when I couldn't smoke you know what I mean. But I haven't touched anything since I started vaping..

    Dipped since 11 y/o, quit 3-ish years ago, so over 35 years of dipping (Skoal->Copenhagen->Grizzly+ various loose leaf). I will say that replacing the lip feel to me was important, using organic (smokey mountain, etc) and snus. Still will use snus (Swedish) when needed when I can't vape. Being able to DIY has also helped with the cost of e-juice to stay on vaping. Congrats, I feel that quieting dip is even more difficult than quitting smoking.

    I dipped for just over 20 years and started vaping 4 months ago and I haven’t dipped since. At first I had to find the right nic level that worked for me so I could adjust. If the nic level was to low, I found myself vaping a lot and by the afternoon I was ready to five finger punch someone. Once I got the right level I was good to go. The flavors in vaping really helped me with the cravings along with getting nicotine in my system, which helped in quitting dipping. Congrats on quitting! Also welcome to the community. For me vaping is not only a safer alternative but really a enjoyable experience.

    I started dipping when I was in the field, that carried over once I got out and dipped all day in the shop, while I have never had any problems putting down any nicotine source when I was ready, vaping has replaced dipping for me. I don't even have the urge to dip, even if I do think about throwing a lip in, just the smell of someone else's can being opened is enough to kill that idea.
