    1C321127-8179-4571-912D-EC7BA5823C85.jpeg I enjoy occasionally chewing Levi Garrett & Cope
    But I’ve been looking around for something to chew or dip inside that I will not have to spit with.
    I tried this stuff called ‘cowboy coffee chew’ which is essentially coffee grinds bound together with honey and a slight Sweet cream flavor. Essentially you are chewing on flavored coffee grounds. It’s good I like it. Once the honey dissolves it’s a bit gritty.

    Is there another product out there anyone has used that is not tobacco-based?

    You're saying that you want to keep the nastiest ass habit of all time but don't want the danger.

    Some of the quit smoking programs have a mint leaf chew of some sort.

    I thought about trying one of those. I had seen one on amazon. That’s where I found the coffee based one.

    I’ve tried this one a couple times. Trying to get off Grizzly, myself. I don’t really like pouches, and this stuff seems to dissolve quickly. You can swallow it, too.

    Peanut butter. Pretty sure there is no nicotine in it and it is really good if you add chocolate.

    I've been chewing Copenhagen off and on since I was in High School.
    Tried to quit many times, probably half heartedly many.... it's one my vices, I accept it and can offer the following suggestions.
    • Don't be gross when you dip, don't spit everywhere
    • Brush your teeth after you dip
    • Go get your teeth cleaned every 6 months
    • Move it around and don't keep it in the same place all the time.
    I tried to switch to true Swedish snus, however found it to be cost prohibitive. I've been using the tobacco free nicotine pouches (Zyn and On!) for probably 6-8 months now and was using snus (Skoal or Camel) for many years before that.
    My actual Copenhagen usage is basically down to 1 or 2 dips and day, mainly on the ride to and from work or if I am doing something outside in the yard.

    I actually like the Zyn and On! and find myself using it more than Copenhagen

    I realize that I am biased in the discussion but I would argue that smoking is far more disgusting than someone who dips and is not a total slob about it.

    Baccoff got me off of smokeless tobacco. I'm 56 and started dipping when I was 13. About three years, maybe four years ago, I quit the Wintergreen Skoal finecut, and started using the Baccoff Wintergreen non-nicotine dip.

    I can't remember when I quit the Baccoff. It got me off of dipping for good. I think it's been at least a year, maybe two, since I last dipped Baccoff. It allowed me to quit because of no nicotine. It's all about the nicotine. Once you stop the nicotine, going through the natural motions of dipping and the corresponding urges, will eventually subside and ultimately go away.

    Dentists and oral surgeons should pitch this kind of stuff to kids and their parents. Unfortunately, it's cheap and they can't make any money from it.

    I used the Smokey Mountain herbal snuff (they have pouches also). I've been tobacco free three years since Feb. I think I was more addicted to the oral habit than the nicotine. It took 3 1/2 years using this stuff but I made it. This is the first month that I don't actually have a can in my left front pocket (now I keep a spare mag there). Good luck with it. This has been one of my best accomplishments.

    This is true Swedish Snus.

    What is in the picture is EXTREMELY cost prohibitive.... unless you can figure out how a way to write it off....your my CPA after all.

    Oh, I wrote them off all right. Look at the attitude of the one on my far right!

    I am holding the couzy and the snus sample in my right hand, and a floozy in my left hand!

    The smokysnuffstore link above was in addition to all the snus stuff I found, as an alternative. I remember asking about the snus prices then, and was not impressed enough to buy any. I try to frequent all the vendor tents at shoots like this, and I'll take any free stuff they give away.

    I can't believe no one has suggested this yet.


    You could always start vaping.
