Luke Combs is kicking an old habit thanks to his girlfriend

Luke Combs is kicking an old habit thanks to his girlfriend.  He tells Taste of Country he finally ditched chewing tobacco with a little loving coercion.

Combs says, "I'm trying to quit dipping — well actually, I have quit. It was 'cause of my girlfriend. She hated that I dipped and you know it was just time. Time to just kick it."

Combs instead turned to lozenges to help wean him off the old go-to. 

Combs says the decision to quit dipping was also a career one, noting the habit can negatively affect his singing voice. He says... "the worst thing in the world for your voice is any sort of acid reflux, heartburn type thing. Obviously, I eat a lot greasy stuff anyways, and then I dipped, so that's really what kills your voice more than anything."

Given the choice between quitting certain food and quitting dip, he says the "choice was obvious." But not necessarily easy. "I do miss it every day, but I'm getting better."
