I got carded today while buying a can of dip. Tobacco selling age in NC is 18. Yeah, baby. Dude said I had a baby face after he turned red when he saw my birthdate and realized that I am more than twice the age of 18.

Little things like this make me feel good. Had to share.

Think of it this way. When it rots your Jaw with cancer you will have to drink beer through a straw. Yuck!

Thanks for the advice. I know the risks and want to stop.
Yet ....

I'm working on it.

Skoal long cut spearmint since I was 16.

Lump in throat, (scar tissue) bad breath, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth.

I have quit twice, but usually have a "trigger event" as an excuse.

Last time I started back, it was because my brother passed away.

Have gotten down to twice a day, and am on the way to quitting. What works?

Last time I quit, went on a sailboat cruise for a week.

Nowhere to buy it in the middle of the ocean. First couple days suck, but that's what works for me.

Hear ya. I was down to about a can every three days before my dad died in May '07. Gradually went back up to almost a can a day. Hardcore Copenhagen long cut.

I can't do the cruise thing. Open to any suggestions.
