This might be a reason to quit dipping. Stopped at a convenience store for a van of long you mint xtra and they wanted $7.36 tax include. I told clerk to put it back on the shelf. I remember when a van was .35 and I struggled to collect coke bottles to buy a van. A whole roll cost me $37 and change just yesterday.

And I know a guy that goes through A ROLL each day.....

No joke....

I have pleaded with him to stop or at least cut it in half for now...he cant stop. He literally changes his dip out every 20-30 mins

It was my understanding there would be no math. There seems to be five cans in a roll. Man, that dude does need to slow his roll. That is crazy. I don't know if nicotine levels are 5x higher with 5 cans than with one can without swapping out as frequently but certainly levels are higher. Must be some good stuff if he is dropping $30 a day on it.

When it was .35 how much was you making then? What was the percentage of your income was that can then and what percentage is it now? Don't get me wrong you still need to quite as I also need to quite again.

Must be less taxes in OK. I went fishing with a friend in AL and FL. I think it was AL where we went in to a gas station and Copenhagen was $2-$3. I don't know what it costs in Texas, but my friend loaded up like it was Christmas!

That's a lot of money to slowly kill yourself. I'm glad I quit dipping 8 years ago.

It's cheaper in Kansas but it's not much more expensive in Oklahoma. Copenhagen is expensive in Texas. But then again they all seem that way to me. I stock up before I go down there huntin. It's pretty expensive.

That's part of why I quit. Haven't had a can of Copenhagen (or any dip) since Memorial Day this year and I was dipping more than 1 can a day. Easily over $2k a year. Gross.

Yeah, some people just over do everything. I dipped a lot more than my share of tabacco. I could drink and eat with it. But I never dipped a can a day. I'm sure glad I quit!!!

It was a big reason I quit. I was really mad at Redman 3 bags a day. 6 dollar a day habit about 10 years ago it jumped to 10 dollars a bag. 30 dollars a day was to much and didn't get much out of it so I started doing crack now I work on weedeaters in the middle of the night.

I said I was Quieting when it went over $.75, then again at $1.00 and $2.00 and so on. Finally kicked the habit after 37 years. It wasn't the money that made me stop, I just decided to stop. I would have dipped it at $10 a can.

HOLY CHIT! That's $10k plus every year. I wish I had a habit that I could kick to save that much money. I would be a hunting a fishing machine!

I was at the dentist years ago. New one. He was checking out my gums and such and kept going back to this one spot. He asked is that where you put your dip. I said yes. It has to go right there. He told me to try and start moving it around. I hadn't even told him I dipped. Threw the can away and haven't touched it since.

My dad quit after 25 years with an almost identical story.

I dipped for 15 years and hd really good luck cutting back and stopping with the Smokey mountain herbal snuff and Zyn pouches. Not the same, but made quitting relatively painless.

I think if I wanted to quit I could pretty easily. A can last me about 2 days. I don't do it much when I'm at work. Seems like the less I have to do the more I dip or chew. I also do it more when I'm huntin for some reason.

Now I have this mental image of you, tweaking in the middle of the night trying to fix weedeaters. Thanks for the laugh.

I quit when cohenhage went to $2.89 a can. I was buying 3 cans a day. That was almost $10 a day, when was close to $300 a month. I saved enough money when I quit dippin to make the payments on my first new truck. That was back in the early 90s. Today, I cant stand the smell of Copenhagen.

Oddly enough I know an oral surgeon that dips and sat next to a dentist on an airplane that dipped. Both of them told me the fake stuff is more abrasive on your gums. Also that most cancer related cases come from guys that donít spit or fall asleep with a chew in. Either way still bad for you, just interesting.
