    Dude, don't start chewing if you haven't already. I chewed redman and dipped skole and copenhagen snuff for years. It took me years of trying but finally was able quit. Believe me, my body, face and mouth are so much better for it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not preaching. Just giving my opinion and life experience.

    Man, if I had all the money back I've spent on tobacco since I was 20.... Call it $5.00 a day X 365 = $1825 a year X 38 years = $69,350.

    That's a lot of Glocks

    Yea don't start any habits that will jeopardize your health. Find more "sane" ways to deal with life's problems. For example working out, going to church, picking up a hobby or sport. There's many good ways to relax the mind without harming your body and giving yourself bigger problems than you already have!

    I concour!! I didn't chew but I was a 30 year hard core smoker, anything you can do to not start ... DO IT!!!!! Tobacco is THE MOST addictive thing ever. I really thought I would die a smoker I was so badly addicted. But by the grace of God I am 8 years a nonsmoker and will be forever!!

    But seriously. I've been smoking/dipping since I was 12. I'm 22 now. I've made a lot of bad decisions in my short years on this earth and that is by far the worst one I have ever made!!!! Please bro, don't do it. You will regret it later on!!!

    What Lee said. If you haven't started, don't. Used Skoal & Red Man for 20 years. It was tough to quit, but I've never been sorry, health and money wise.

    I have been dipping for about 5 years and wish I had never started. If you something to take the edge off go to the range and sling some lead

    I agree with everyone else. I have used skoal cherry long cut for about 10 years now it helps with the edge, but, my teeth are all messed up and it's just not worth it. There are other things in life that would be healthier than snuff. The snus are just as bad as long cut which is just as bad as chewing the leafs. Don't do it brother you will thank us 10 years from now

    don't do it.

    I've smoked and chewed, back and forth between the 2 for a little over 20 years. I quit smoking for 6 years, and started up again several months ago in an attempt to get off of the chew. Now I'm smoking and chewing again......terrible cycle of slow death.

    don't do it

    Copenhagen + 20 years = 3 bone graft surgeries on my upper & lower jaw to address bone loss caused by tobacco usage.
    Irony is that I had quit for several years before I found out that I even needed surgery.
    I've been tobacco free for about 8 years now but the smell of Copenhagen still makes me crave it. Steer clear my friend.
