In brief: Know the risks!

Dipping refers to chewing tobacco and is associated with oral cancer, tooth loss, and addiction potential; if craving nicotine, you may want to try some of the nicotine containing gums, patches or smoking cessation aids; if it's more of an oral fixation, you may want to try chewing gum; even if through sheer willpower, your long term health will be enhanced by quitting chewing tobacco.
Good luck!
