The most common symptoms include:

  • Having cravings for dip
  • Feeling down or sad
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Feeling irritable‚ on edge‚ or grouchy
  • Having trouble thinking clearly and concentrating
  • Feeling restless and jumpy
  • Having a slower heart rate
  • Feeling more hungry or gaining weight

Over time, these symptoms and cravings will fade if you stay away from dip.


Withdrawal can be uncomfortable and some people may feel high levels of symptoms. Some people feel increased sadness after they quit. If you are having extreme sadness, let people know. Take this quiz to find out if you have signs of depression.

People, places, and things can trigger a craving. This means it's important to have a plan for how you'll handle a craving when it hits.
