“I can’t stop” Vic Lombardi confesses to dip addiction

Colin D. | June 18, 2014

It’s called “smokeless tobacco” not “harmless tobacco” and Denver’s most beloved television sports anchor is addicted to it. Chewing tobacco, or “dip” as it’s known, caused the mouth cancer that ultimately resulted in the death of Padres great Tony Gwynn earlier this week. Gwynn’s passing has heightened awareness around the use of smokeless tobacco and the harm it can cause.

Vic Lombardi took the channel 4 airwaves to confess his use of the stuff and to discourage others from picking up the habit. He’s addicted to dip. He can’t stop and he realizes that it’s a terrible habit. In his TV commentary he even admitted that he had a dip in his mouth as he wrote it.

We hope that Vic can stop and / or that his confession causes others to think twice. As a smoker for the past twenty or so years I can certainly relate to the difficulty Vic has had quitting.
