    Any opinions on dipping (skoal)

    Can't stand to smoke, but I like to take an occasional dip. Do you guys think this is very counter productive to my workouts?

    I wouldnt reccomend dipping while working out, but it wont hinder your gains if thats what you are asking. Definately not good for you though, I spit out a piece of my gums about a week ago.....

    Yeah, I guess that would be a good reason to quit. I was thinking I would quit when my teeth started to fall out.

    Sure, here's an opinion... its nasty. Your mouth will eventually look like a sewer. And yes, it will effect your workouts. It sstill contains nicotine which like in cigarettes, will dialate your arteries, slow down blood flow, increase the strain on your heartr and lower your vascularity. Not to mention eventually give you mouth cancer. Ever see one of those people thathad to have half their jaw removed from dip??? nasty.

    I dip.... trying to quit, but it's a hard habit to kick. Anyways, I wouldn't say it will actually hinder your workouts, but it can't help them either. I'm not gonna preach or lecture, but if it's an occasional thing.... stop now before ya become hooked like many of us have.

    As I see it... yes it's a nasty addiction, but we all have a vice... or at least need one.

    kodiak straight mmhhmm i have quit about 3 times so far but i really enjoy chewing. right now on the east coast they have grizzly straight which is about the same thing. I have found that by switching to a straight chew it doesnt burn up my gums like winter green and those new chick flavors that skoal has release.

    Yeah, grizzly, just bought some of the grizzy straight the other day. Inexpensive but pretty good. I can't stand those fruity flavors either.

    I prefer Copenhagen but I can't afford it. I can't stand Skoal period. I was using Wolf wintergreen longcut, but switched to Grizzly wintergreen longcut.... Grizzly straight is pretty good and I usually switch between the two.

    I value your advice. Right now I'm only dipping once a day and if I miss a day it's no big deal. I'm still getting those nice little headrushes everytime I dip. You vets probably don't get those anymore.

    I didn't pay to start. I was given five free containers of the skoal pouches at a crawfish festival. First time I tried it the sh1t made me so dizzy that I spit it out. A week later I decided to try it again. Been dipping for over a month now.

    Hell I like dipping, my teeth have became sensitive to cold now.... but I've been doing it for over 12 years now. I'm not the type to tell people "Oh smoking and dipping is bad you need to quit" but I just had to offer the opinion to quit now while your not addicted cause than it's harder than hell to kick.... just my .02.

    apple is nasty. skoal is good as long as its not the fruity flavors, although that peach that just came out is pretty good (my friends are pussies) Cant afford cope or skoal either, so I buy the Grizz. When the Grizzly mint came out it was $.49 a tin, and i would buy as many as they would let me.

    I used to quit when I'd start seeing someone, but luckily the ex didn't mind me dipping and neither does the girl I'm with now. Hell she'll even dip on very rare occasions...

    Well thank you very much for those pics (as I currently have a dip in)

    I'm working on quitting. I value my teeth and gums to much. It's a hard habit to kick and don't have the intentions of keeping this much longer.
