    I got to go back today and have more cut out of my jaw/gums. Today should be my last trip then just checkups. Got 3 stitches today and will be down for a couple days on pain meds and lying around eating soup and popsicles. It’s awful to go through but it’s not cancer yet on any of the biopsy’s.

    I quit (again) for 6 weeks, but I ballooned up from 180 to 190 lbs. So I capitulated and got a tin of Skoal. So now I'm back on again.



    Even though after that last withdrawal I woke up to the most thunderous, painful headache I've had in my adult life, one morning.



    Oh well...I will quit again (for good), in due time. Just have to stick with it.

    Red Man for me. Love the long strand pouch tobacco. Reminds me of my deceased Grandpa and doesn't get stuck in my teeth. I like to chew on something and move it around my mouth so a "chew pocket" doesn't get raw and inflamed.

    Dipped for about 3 and half years. Quit about a year ago junior year of college. My everyday dip for the first year was always Copenhagen XLC Natural before discovering how sickly sweet Stoker's Wintergreen was for such a cheap tub. I still miss it, sometimes I will order a little can of Back-Off but nothing is the same as reaching into a tub of Stoker's.

    I know it's weird, but I like to chew and smoke. I try not to do either very frequently. I buy a pouch of tobacco every other month or so and it usually takes me 10 days to 3 weeks to chew it all. Cig's I try and only bum or smoke a cigar rather than have a pack as I'm almost addicted by the end of a week or so of having a cig or two every day. All things in moderation.

    My jaw was sore for a while after starting back up again - I thought Skoal might be a cleaner tobacco product (than, say, Kayak) but I wonder if it wasn't the culprit.





    Any way, I got some General Swedish Snus (I got a tin before when I had a coupon for it) and have been doing that. It's allegedly as clean a "chaw" product you can get, and there is apparently really low levels of oral cancer in Scandinavia where it is more used.





    However, there are some problems with it: 24 pouches are expensive. If you can't moderate them (use only 1 at a time instead of 2 or more) you can go through a "tin" quickly.



    Moreover, you don't get that "I have a chaw in my mouth" sort of vibe when you insert a pouch.



    That said, my sore jaw isn't sore anymore since I started on the tin of General.





    Also, if you guys are interested in nicotine-less products, "Grinds" aren't bad. They're made of coffee and apparently one pouch is equal 1/4 cup of coffee, so it's a stimulant in that respect. https://www.getgrinds.com/

    Hey Joe,

    I`ve been chewing the General for about a year now. Much easier on the teeth and gums. Skoal pouches are too sweet and Cope was giving me heartburn from ****. I like the General and around here it`s a bit cheaper than the two big brands. it`s not very popular so watch out for old tins.

    Yeah I swas getting past due tins from the place I was buying, so now it's a habit to check sell-bsell-by dates when I buy.



    How much is general where you're at? Really wish there were more than 24 pouches! The tins are like half empty when new.

    I've been doing the General (mint) for a while now. Since this last post.





    Pros and cons:





    Pros:



    No more jaw soreness of any kind (that I'm aware of)

    Flavor lasts a good bit per pouch

    My health feels okay since starting exclusively on these

    Cravings for real chew has dropped dramatically by throwing one of these in

    Far less chemicals in General than, for example, Camel Snus.



    Cons:



    Expensive (where I am at least - $7.50 roughly a tin of 24 pouches)

    The pouches are delicate and can puncture easily

    Don't give you the "I have a chaw in" experience

    Limited to smoke shops that actually sell this product

    I agree with all that Joe, prices have gone up here to.

    Has anyone tried the Smokey Mountian chew? It is all natural no tobacco in product. price wise they charge $20.00 for a can of shoal in Canada.

    Yes. All different flavors. It's not bad - I prefer it to "Mint Snuff" and stuff like that. Chipper Jones I believe endorses them.
