Smokeless Tobacco Thread

Post by Del » Thu May 12, 2016 7:17 am

Let's talk about enjoying tobacco when you can't smoke.

Snuff, snus, dip, chew. To spit or not to spit, that is the question.

I enjoy snuff, but not very often. It is a bit messy. The sudden lift of a small dose of nicotine is quite nice. Viking Spear is my favorite -- a bit coarser than most, easy to take, spearmint flavored.


I carry snus (Camel Frost, small pouch) with me, every day. I mostly use it when I am physically working on something. It is a gentle lift, helps me stay alert and focused. And I like spearmint.

I have no interest in dip or chew. The spittle is disgusting, and the nicotine delivery is an overdose for me.

I am a pipe smoker. If I can't smoke, I either (1) wait until I can or (2) change the circumstances until I can. I don't understand "Let's talk about enjoying tobacco when you can't smoke."

I am also primarily a pipe smoker. But I also enjoy cigars and smokeless tobacco, at suitable times.

Tobacco is a hobby.

I haven't used a smokeless tobacco product in many, many years and, truth be told, never really enjoyed it when I did. Every now and then the idea of trying snus has some appeal, but a vision of my sinuses exploding on contact has kept me from experimenting.

I usually get a pouch of chew every summer to take fishing or camping. Red Man Golden Blend is a favorite. Right now a coworker gave me a can of Copenhagen Mint to try. It's pretty good. But yeah the nicotine is a bit much.

I chewed Levi Garrett for a short time in High School (long story involving a girl and rodeo team and a very angry bull)...Then when I was guiding snowmobile tours in Breckenridge, I got a cold and a fellow guide gave me some snuff and it helped me breathe and I was hooked on it for a Winter-Spring...even bought some Rasberry snuff at a small tobacco shop in Denver....but never used more than two or three snuffs...

I have never had the desire to try it again...and since I only smoke to relax...I smoke when I have time and don't use tobacco when I can't.

However I abuse coffee all day long.... :D

I love nasal snuff and schmalzers and I've prolly tried nearly all of them from around the world. Really hard to find anymore, not available in the US anymore either so needless to say I don't snuff much.

I found a big tin of Samuel Gawith Black Coffee snuff I sealed in a mason jar I may open.

I've used General Swedish Snus in the past, which is considered a good grade product and one can gut it but it's not somethings I think about often.

I chewed plug tobacco (U***n Standard) from age 14-16. At age 16 I went to work at a service station and my boss didn't like me serving customers with a big wad in my mouth so I switched to Copenhagen and became hopelessly addicted to nicotine. I dipped Cope for the next 31 years and finally stopped at age 47. Every once in a while - seven years after quitting - I'll find myself reaching in to my pocket for a chew after a meal. I really miss it. Caffeine is my main stimulant these days and it's not as effective. I took up the pipe hoping it would deliver the nicotine kick I desired but it's never been more than a hobby. Certainly not an addiction like I had earlier in life. That's probably a good thing.

I have a half dozen tins of snuff laying about and will take a snort once in a while, but it often feels like mainlining and I get heart palpitations.

I enjoyed the Camel snus in the yellow tin a few years ago while in college when I worked on my papers in a non-smoking house. It had the right nicotine and I could go longer without smoking. Now that we have new landlords who are anti-smoking nazis, Jogged some old memories.
I may pick up a few tins when I'm writing. I also buy a few packs a year of Ariva Java dissovable snuff for church (yeah I know, kinda redneck of me to do that in church, but services can last three hours long). Should I be employed, I may load up, but most places around here allow smoking on their grounds.

I'm an occasional snufftaker - prompted by a quest to better understand the various essences traditional to UK baccy blending, so I'm only really interested in those of English origin.

I agree that it's overly messy and somewhat strange, but also exhilarating and oddly at times has acted as a "cognitive enhancer" for me.

I also enjoy the snuff 'n puff with some Toque SP Extra and St. Bruno Flake - a luverly combination.

Sometimes I sprinkle Viking Dark and SP into my Dark Star to add a kick and make it even more especial.

I have been very very slow in sampling all the various snuffs and I'm still in learning mode.

One of the funniest and entertaining snuff threads I've read is this one:

Nothing beats a good pipe or cigar in my mind, but I enjoy most all forms of tobacco including the smokeless. Nasal snuff is my favorite form of smokeless. I've been working through several Toque tins, Lime Toast being my current favorite. I also have a love for chewing tobaccos. From the lightly sweetened Mail Pouch to the heavily sauced Redman blends; whether it be loose leaf, a twist, or a plug I enjoy most all of it. I'm an airplane mechanic in rural Ohio so spitting on the job offends very few. Other than while I'm at work or out in nature alone I don't chew tobacco. It's not very gentleman-like. I've tried snus and I don't mind it at all. It's something I get every once in a while, but if they quit making it I wouldn't think twice. I've never found a dip I like. They all smell awful to me, taste like they smell, and are just a mess in your mouth.

I got some coupons in the mail for Grizzly wintergreen pouches.

I gather that "moist snuff" or "dip" tobacco is different from snus, and requires spitting. So I am not tempted to try this... I am happy with Camel Frost snus.

Unless someone tells me that Grizzly pouches can be worn in the upper lip and no spitting is required. Anyone?

It can definitely be done.

Cope or Skoal. Lower lip (and what's the alleged advantage of upper?). Flavor whichever. Spitting unnecessary.

Dry Snuff. Bruton, usually. F&T HDT, ideally.

Pouches fit discreetly in the upper lip.

And lower lip seems to trigger more salivation.

Every once in a while I'll get a bag of Beechnut or Red Man. Spittin' is fun and reminds me of when I would chew while working some hard labor jobs in the past. I still by far prefer my pipes but a little reminder that I can still be a knuckle dragging Neanderthal with a wad of chew isn't a bad thing.
