Spit Tobacco: A Guide for Quitting.

This guide is intended to help you make your own plan for quitting. Many former dippers have shared advice on quitting that can help you. This guide is the result of advice from chewers and dippers who have canned the habit. In this guide we refer more to dip than chew, just to keep it simple. Also, note that we call it-spit tobacco, not smokeless tobacco. Smokeless tobacco is the term preferred by the tobacco industry. It makes the products sound safe; they aren't.
