There's a lot of nitrogen cure in beef jerky - that may not be the best thing for your cheek, either. I have no medical information to back that up, but I used to make jerky for a while and I know what goes into it.
I'd stick with sunflower seeds or something like that.
Interesting, I honestly didn't know that. That said, stick with the seeds.
I used to chew as well and have stopped a few times before I finally quit for good. When I felt stressed I would start up again. I did not start again because of the additiction, but it calmed me down during stressfull times. The best way to quit for me was cold turkey and I dipped for over 13 years. I tried the seeds etc....but that only got the craving going more. Are you married or have kids? That was my motivation which is why I was able to quit cold turkey. My wife does not deserve for me to lose half of my face or have a jacked up grill. My wife and son deserve to have me around for many years and if I continued, that may not have happened.
Good luck, just have faith. If you want to quit bad enough, you will.
Congrats man and good luck with it. I quit smoking more on will power then anything. Try big league chew, or like alot of these guys have suggested sunflower seeds. I know that quitting smoking was a very hard process and im sure that dip will be just as hard. I still crave cigarettes and i quit back in Nov. What i did is everytime i wanted one is thought i am letting this beat me and i hate to lose. Good luck with it though and i will be pulling for you man.

First of all, why would you quit in the middle of the season? I think it's great that you're quitting, but another few months isn't going to hurt you, but if you quit now, you're routine could be fouled up and your season could suffer. Just a thought. Not to discourage you from quitting, but I remember quitting smoking and I was a wreck. I remember trying to conduct interviews at the time and it was hell. The applicants probably thought I was a nut case. I agree with everyone who mentioned seeds and gum, but also water. If you constantly are drinking water, not only is it good for you, but you won't be dipping. I used to chew too, but only when I was hunting so it wasn't much of a problem quitting since I only did it parttime. Smoking was difficult.
