Default Anyone Snus?

http://data1.blog.de/blog/k/kairokairo/img/snus.jpg

LOL. Not me! (No really, not me) But I have given this stuff a try.

Not bad, IMO, my wife doesn't complain about me smelling like a cigarette, my sons doesn't know that I am smoking, the flavor is decent (kinda like keeping a mildly vanilla-earthy flavored candy under your lip), theres no spitting, and 1 pouch is good for an hour or more (YRMV).

Of course theres still a lot of health debates about this stuff but, it ain't smoking and I can work on breaking the tactile habit for less than a patch or gum and still get a nicotine fix.

Minus the 4 teeth that have fallen out, the sour stomach, and the loss of bowel control, I see no real side effects.

Anyone else using?

All teeth still here.
I and a lot of other Swedish people use it (have done it ever since the mandatory military service - well it was mandatory when I did it, nowadays it has changed).

I just started a week ago. Been cigarette free for a few days now and I already I breathe better. It's pretty amazing stuff. I still get minor cigarette urges, but they're quickly satiated after a minute or two of having snus under my upper lip. And I'm not talking about the mediocre Camel Snus. That stuff didn't do much for nicotine cravings.

I like the Camel snus. its a cool sales gimick that they sell it cold. I went to a concert the other day and Camel had their promo trailer there. I wound up leaving with 7 cans of snus(4 frost and 3 of the other flavor,mild?) Kept thefrost and gave the other to a coworker. also got a pack of the camel crush smokes. And coupans.

I've done it for a while now. Currently have General Sterk white portion on hand. Nick & Johnny is also a good one, but strong. That picture is pretty gross. It's nothing like that in reality, especially the portion snus. I order it from Sweden duty free (one can import a certain quantity of tobacco without paying taxes on it). With shipping it comes to $3-something a can and I only do it a couple times a day, so it's a few months between orders.

If you look at the science behind it, it is a much lower risk form of tobacco... possibly the lowest risk form (next to nasal snuff, but blowing that crap out of your nose gets annoying and disgusting). Due to the curing method (steam), there is a much lower level of nitrosamines (cancer-causing) than nearly all other forms of tobacco.
