Throwin In A Dip

Most of the guy analysts dip, including myself. I knew most guys did going but it's still a pretty nasty habit. So when I was sitting in on a phone call w/ my VP not to long after I started and hey threw in a pouch I thought it was no biggie. Ever since I've been a little more cavalier about throwing in a lipper (ie during daylight hours) our admin has been has been a total bitch to me and has me paranoid that I'm insulting people. What's proper dip edict?

Snus, nobody will know.

Once you have been dipping for a while, snus do absolutely nothing. They are terrible.

When you are great, people will often mistake candor for arrogance.

I got a bunch of buddies who just got back from Iraq, and they love that crap. They've almost sucked me into it, but so far I have resisted... we'll see how long I can refrain.

I work on the buyside so its a bit more laidback (especially the firm I work at) so discount this however you will. I don't do pack lips whenever the two most senior guys are around, but the rest of my team is all guys and relatively chill so I simply asked them one night if anyone minded or would be offended if I dipped. They all said do whatever the fuck you want and one asked for a lip.

snus/pouches don't buzz me, only longcut. just be discrete about the spitter.

Feb 5, 2011

I love my copenhagen but I personally would never throw one in at the office. Banking is a very buttoned-up, first impression business. Dipping at work may come off as unprofessional. I would only throw in a lip only if I was with a couple of other analyst at the office working on a pitchbook at 3 am or on the shitter where no one could see you during the day. If you really have to, throw a couple of snus pouches in.

I love copenhagen, but its not worth the risk. You don't want to be remembered as 'the guy who always has a lip in' when final reviews come in. Like it or not, you're working at a bank, not a truckstop.

Out of town and on my phone so ill make this quick.

1) snus is faggots and 12 year olds.
2) long cut or nothing
3) all you guys that dip need to join my dipping monkeys group
4) OP but it in between your molars and the side of your cheek while making sure you spit in an opaque bottle.with a screw on top.

I throw in a pouch when my MD and associate aren't around later in the evenings. Long cut is too messy for work in my opinion.

fine cut > long cut. Copenhagen Snuff is the best

^^^ I can't do snuff. That shit gets in your teeth and you end up swallowing most of it. I'd take redman plugs over cope snuff any day.

Speaking of swallowing. A care taker at one of my friend's farms used to swallow his lip rather than spit (yes, I know 'that's what she said'). Guy ended up with terminal cancer. Had tumors from his mouth all the way down to his asshole. Some call it a dangerous addiction, I call it loyalty.

Feb 9, 2011

^^Fine cut is like dipping sand, its a mess and gets everywhere.

I met a guy that had been in the military like 32 years and he would chew, no hyperbole, a quarter of a can at a time and never spit. It was ridiculous.

And why the fuck aren't more of you in my sweet dippin monkeys group?

Ya the marine corps will definitely do that to you. I never really got into dipping the cheap stuff when I dipped though. It seems like that was usually reserved for the true hillbillies.

Feb 9, 2011

used to dip when I was working nights covering asia as everyone on that desk including myself were a bunch of wierdoes/hermits/whatever, and didnt care about stupid crap like that, but now that im on days with 200 or so people on my floor, I stay away from dipping.

Oh and to echo everyone who already mentioned this, snus and pouches wont do shit to anyone who has been a regular dipper for some time. (see happy's list, its pretty accurate)

The next logical question is what are you guys packing? I saw some love for cope before. Until I get my SA signing bonus I'm dirt poor and limited to grizzly mint, but I love it deep down anyway.

i dont dip but the bank i used to work at there would be spitters all the time in the stalls.

my buddies who dip say the trick is to make sure to use a non clear bottle as a spitter like a snapple bottle or something and to keep the dip away from your lips bc its more noticeable. either uppers or side dips.

Discrete side-dips are my go-to's. Last week at my internship, people were pretty much gone except for me and another analyst. He randomly came up to me and was like hey man do you pack- want a lip? Most enjoyable pitch book I've made. It's the little things that count.

It is a type of chewing tobacco that requires you to have a penis to use. Though girls can dip, it is both revolting and instantly makes any man that sees it never want to have sex with her again unless said man possesses <12 teeth. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STIg_rssW3M

One time back in college my buddy's girlfriend saw me pack a lip and asked for a chew. Watched her pack the tin like a pro and throw one in. He started bitching about it; I thought she was badass and in my eyes he looked like a giant pussy. What makes it even better is this chick is pretty hot.

Sorry to revive such an old post. Snus doesn't do much ( I have been dipping for 11 years), but a couple of pouches gets me through the day. That stuff is pretty worthless otherwise. I see a lot of guys my age loading up on snus and dip int he stores downtown, but never see anyone chewing in the office. I take it snus is the popular day-time alternative. Nothing beats the real thing.

Snus and dip are used frequently and openly by most junior levels in my office. In the beginning, I made a concerted effort to be discreet and once swallowed an entire mouthful when I realized I couldn't spit before my MD got to me. Now it's not uncommon to see multiple analysts with a lip in before 11:30 AM. Once, at the end of a prolonged period of late nights/all-nighters, I saw my associate quintuple bagging as he plugged away. As if being fat and bitter weren't enough.

there are a fuck ton of analysts, associates, and even directors/mds that dip... one of the directors on my floor throws in a full horseshoe every day... it probably depends on your group and your firm... it's something you'd have to feel out, but tons of guys on my floor do and they'll just have a little spitter on their desk

Jan 6, 2012

Compared to dipping, the pouched tobacco snus isn't that strong. However, some of the loose tobacco can be as strong and even stronger than dip. For me, the buzz wears off after a few min. Take into account I've been dipping and doing snus for the last 5-6 years.

Anyone do snuff? I went to Iceland last year and my senior-citizen tour-guide would casually snort a decent amount tobacco every half hour. It's probably devastating to his health but it did look awesome. Keeping it legal Larry Kudlow

At a small HF I used to work for several people dipped on the trading floor. It was allowed because of the culture though... and about 75% of the traders were former varsity athletes.

Jan 6, 2012

I've tried snuff a couple of times. Gives a short buzz, but you end up blowing tobacco out of your nose the next couple of hours. I'd much rather be dipping my penis in some good ol' Skoal than do that on a regular basis.

Jan 6, 2012

Snus sucks. Just throw regular pouches of moist snuff up top (the old "cliff hanger" is less noticeable than throwing in downstairs) and chew gum at the same time. You should be able to gut pouch spit pretty easily.

Jan 6, 2012

My friend tried it for a bit... it works, I guess. Whenever I did it I started sneezing like hell, though.

Jan 6, 2012

snuff is legit and will help focus you but wears off quickly...and definitely order your snus from sweden it is much stronger

Jan 6, 2012

so a snus buzz is similar to dips?

Even then though I can usually gut Grizzly well. It packs so well no tobacco ever really comes loose.

I dipped throughout college, also helped me focus on studying plus was tired of going outside every 2 hours for a smoke. I dipped the first few months of my job; mostly after most people in the office would leave, during lunch or while taking a shit. I developed a white bump on the inside of my lip a couple months ago so I intelligently stopped dipping and started smoking again. Decided to go to the dentist to get my mouth checked out; now I have to go back in two weeks for another exam because he thinks I may have developed a cancerous lesion on my tongue. I'm 22. So I decided to quit tobacco. With a little will power and a LOT of nicorette gum I've now become addicted to that instead of tobacco; lesser of the evils I suppose. Best part is there's no need to hide the gum, I recommend that instead of trying to hide the dip or using snus.

Yeah, not bad for a City College boy. I bought my way in, now all these Ivy league schmucks are sucking my kneecaps.

I'm going to assume you're not being sarcastic and answer seriously-it's the carcinogens in the chew. The nicotene is not the cancerous substance.

Jan 6, 2012
REPEAnalyst:

I'm going to assume you're not being sarcastic and answer seriously-it's the carcinogens in the chew. The nicotene is not the cancerous substance.

While it may not be directly cancerous, it does affect your body in other potentially harmful ways. "The release of epinephrine (adrenaline) causes an increase in heart rate, blood pressure and respiration, as well as higher blood glucose levels.[33]" from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicotine illustrates that.

Anything that up-regulates your body in that way is bound to have some type of repercussion in at least a small population of people over time. You may not get cancer, but what about diabetes, or other problems that can result from the extra strain it puts on your system?

I have heard some pretty well informed people I know argue that nicotine is in fact a carcinogen in and of itself, regardless of whether or not that's been proved yet. Only people who exclusively use\have used swedish snus and probably nicotine gum and electronic ciggeretts could determine that with any accuracy, and the people that used those forms of nicotine products have almost always either used real tobacco in the past, or continue to do so.

I'm just putting that idea on the table without any actual evidence to back it up because of the inherent problems with controlling the test population correctly.

In your own private office? Fine. Super late at night after most people leave? Fine. Weekend? Fine.

Also - I'm fine with dipping but I would imagine you'd have to work at a place with some pretty relaxed senior guys or senior people who actually dip themselves for it to be ok, at least during the day. I dip myself occasionally, but that doesn't change my feelings that it makes me look like a redneck. I certainly wouldn't do it in front of anyone whose opinion of me I valued aside from close friends, and definitely not guys I wanted to think I was smart.

I don't judge other people for doing it, but again I would be surprised if anyone dipped tobacco in front of their superiors. Snus is another story, that would probably be doable because you don't need to spit.

Definitely depends on firm and group - the frattier/college athlete-esque the work environment, the more likely its acceptable . I have one friend who dips routinely at my firm and mixed bag for friends at other firms (definitely more common in S&T).

Also - consider trying Snus instead of dip. Its spitless so it is both less noticeable and you won't have a water bottle filled with dip spit. Don't try the Camel stuff - it tastes like candy. Order the Swedish stuff online (http://www.swedish-snus.com/). Similarly good buzz, much less of a hassle.

snus is pretty nice

Jan 6, 2012

im in energy trading...and probably half of my desk dips regularly while at work.

Jan 6, 2012

For sure - I interned at a fund a few summers ago and would frequently have to run out to (somewhat discreetly) get tins of tobacci for the head trader. Everyone on the desk knew he did it, but he still kept it somewhat on the DL. He was the head trader, so no-one gave a shit, but if you're a young'n definitely don't do it until you're off work.

Jan 6, 2012

yeah several of the traders at my shop dip at work...the partners know it and don't care...I normally wouldn't care because I had plenty of friends who did it in college but that shits nasty when its on the urinal...

Smokey, this is not 'Nam, this is bowling. There are rules.

Jan 6, 2012

LOL this brings me back to my first internship when in college.. it was any old late night.. one of the vps walks into his office.. blasts some classical music on his stereo.. lights up a cig and blows a huge cloud of smoke out into the hallway.. just not giving a f*ck..

Jan 6, 2012

anyone know specific groups in IB where dip is alright? as douche as may sound im putting together my list of places to apply and id rather apply to these former athlete type places if i know what they are

also about snus - recommended. used to work at CME and did it on the floor. good tobacco/cigar shops should have the good stuff from sweden. "the general" is the brand i got.

Jan 6, 2012

Several people I work with Dip. Some of the senior guys that have since left my firm used to dip regularly all day long.

Not saying it's a good habit, but it's supposed to be unbelievably relaxing.

Jan 6, 2012

oh, for a moment i thought this thread was for dipping your pen in the company ink.

Jan 6, 2012

Snus is cleaner

Jan 6, 2012

Long time dipper here.

I was a grizz/t wolf fan until I got to college. I've been a cope man ever since though.

I won't throw a lip in during regular hours in front of everyone. I usually sneak off to the shitter for 15-20 minutes then brush my teeth. But you better believe, when my seniors leave the office, I have one in all night.

Jan 6, 2012

Man how could I forget my good friend Levi Garret. That's my weekend chew

Jan 6, 2012

Love my Grizz Mint, but I get Cope straight occasionally to change it up.

Jan 6, 2012

I've always loved some grizzly long cut wintergreen. Got into cope in college. Occasionally I'll chew some redman.

Jan 6, 2012

I created a dippin monkeys group for this very topic and it has like 40 members.

cope long cut. skoal mint pouches upper deck with occasional sips of coffee or a piece of gum when you need to gut

Jan 6, 2012

let me start off by saying i never understood why ppl prefer loose over pouches, makes no sense to me. pouches is the same shit minus the mess.
anyway skoal mint pouches used to be the choice, snus frost now

Pounches are not the same as long cut. This is an indisputable fact.

this.

Long cut is best in my opinion, but I do have a snus pouch just in case if I don't want to be dirty. Plus I can stomach it

How do I join said group happypants?

And wtf...who downvoted me

Skoal straight has always been my favorite but it is a lot cheaper down here in the south. I am also a fan of grizzly mint and copenhagen straight. I don't know if any of you guys have ever heard of it but there is a dip called stokers that comes in a big ass tub and it is really good. Its really juicy and extra long cut.

Long cut is definitely better than pouches. If you have a good solid dip pocket there is virtually no mess when dipping long cut.

Jan 6, 2012

Long time dipper. I dip at work now and again when Im especially stressed.

Straight Skoal, POUCHES, snapple bottle spitter = incognito

Have a lip of skoal cherry in right now. I'm paying almost $16 for a big tin up here in Canada so whenever i head down to the states I always pick up a bunch of tins of grizzly and my favourite kayak grape (they don't have grizzly or kayak here in Canada).

Jan 6, 2012

kayak grape is an unsung hero. kinda weak, but absolutely delicious

What is the rule about dipping at work? I am going into my summer internship and figured that it was not allowed at all? can you get away with it after the senior has left or just don't take any chances..... ps grape is by far the best flavor. otherwise i am a Kodiak mint long cut guy

Jan 6, 2012

after the seniors are gone imo, not a clear cup

Grizz is cheaper than skoal but drier. Gets the job done though. I am surprised by how many chawsky lovers on here. Actually trying to take a break right now because my lips are tore up bad. Also why is that ~1/60 dips puts me on my ass hugging the toilet looking like casper the ghost. I hate that.

This reminds me of pledging.

There was one guy from another chapter who had the fattest horseshoe in during initiation night before we crossed ... he got inventive with his dipspit. God, was that night awful.

Swedish snus. Doesn't get the keyboard dirty any more since I stopped with loose. Always looked bad when I turned pages and there would be residual dip smears at every page.

Turned to Skruf Extra Strong as of late. Man, that kicks the shit out of my lip. Few things beat morning coffee, snus, a busty girl and having the day off.

Disclosure: I'm an upper decker.

is snus the sniffing stuff? Or the type that you can swallow in a pouch? I have always done long cut but only recently have looked into snus

BTW^^ dude where do you live Sweden? haha you can't get dip?

living in a place where you cant get dip is absolutely miserable..i have to hope people in my company are going to the states or i gotta have people mail it over...either way, it's never easy

^can you guys get snuff at least? Maybe unroll a smoke? (second thought that is prob not gonna work).

What kind of barbarians ban sweet sweet chew?

Jan 6, 2012

You should find a guy to mail you inventory regularly and you can run an underground market for Skoal...You'll make a killing. And since it's illegal already you can target young kids so you have predictable cash flows for the future. Will make it easier to calculate the PV of your operation.

@finger_me_elmo: Snuff is the sniffing type. Swedish snus is just pouched. If you're looking for some kicks, try Skruf Extra Strong loose. If you're not used to the strong stuff, this will make you sweat from nicotine shock.

Well, I had a sniff of snuff maybe two days ago. It lasted a few seconds, but I remember back in the days it could last up to a full minute. It sure does clear up the nasal cavity.

Side effects: If you sneeze, there will be black particals flowing with your snot. Same goes with blowing your nose. I've had worse things up my nose that gives a buzz (read: sniffing Jack Daniels/other cheap liquor)

I'd stick to snus over snuff any day, but I did the last one out of sheer 'why not? Used to have an effect. Let's see what it was all about again.'
