Marlboro SNUS Complaint - Marlboro SNUS Poor product

Review by D on 2010-10-17
I stopped smoking a year ago for health reasons but continued to crave tobacco. I discovered SNUS, a form of tobacco the comes in small packets that you insert between your gum and your lip which you allow to "leak " into your mouth slowly.
It is unnecessary to spit. You merely swallow the result.
I was introduced to the Camel variety, which is quite satisfying and cost $3 dollars for a 15 packet tin.

The other day I went to a different store and was talked into Marlboro SNUS and discovered that it cost $2.50 for a pack of 6 which has NO taste and a very coarse wrapper with sharp edges! It is far inferior to the Camel product!

Avoid it!

Should I ever decide to take up the habit, I'll keep that in mind. But while I commend you for quitting smoking, the whole oral tobacco thing will put you at risk for mouth and throat cancers among other things.

I have not had a cig in over 6 months and I don't crave it at all.

God love ya Wally.... I'm compulsive and addictive.
I gave up booze 36 years ago on July 4th. and haven't missed it a bit but terbacky is another matter..

OF, I hear you on the compulsive and addictive. Didn't you always hate those people that had one cigarette every 3 months or so? Lightweights..LOL.

Wally, good for you! I quit about 35 years ago, while I was young like you. Haven't craved it since. Actually, years later, I found out I was allergic to cigarette smoke! I do hate the smell of it now. You don't realize how much it stinks until you quit. The ladies will like you smoke-free too. No one wants to kiss an ash tray!

My Dad used to smoke two packs of Lucky Strikes every day. He smoked since we was a teen and just quit about 3-4 years ago, cold turkey as a promise to my Mom and never picked up a cig since...he'll be 85 years old next week.

I quit smoking 16 months ago and it was by far the most difficult thing to do. After this experience I would not try any form of tobacco, it's that addictive.

I'm lucky in that I have never smoked, so I never had to quit. I watched how hard it was for family members to quit. Some succeeded, some didn't. Some died.

I think some people are more addicted than others, making it almost impossible to quit.

My dad died of lung cancer when I was 25. That was enough for me. I do think you're right Venice. I've known people to quit through their entire pregnancy, only to start up again as soon as the baby was born. I don't think I was ever a hard core smoker, but it was hard to give it up.

I dont smoke on a daily basis. Only when I am drinking do I like to have a cigarette to help my buzz. I got a coupon once for a free pack of snus. I tried it out and it sucked. It says its spitless, but I still felt sick afterwards, and it really irritated my throat. I threw the rest of them away.

Thanks for the input, OF, but I quit smoking with hypnosis coming up on four years ago, and photos of a former baseball player who went to smokeless tobacco convinced me that is one thing I do not wish to try.

I quit smoking about 9 years ago when I found out I was pregnant with my middle son. I only smoked for about 5 years. Smoking a cig used to make me sick and dizzy, and I got tired of smelling like a butt all the time, so I decided to quit. I took a fairly new pack and shredded it in the toilet and haven't had one since. I feel a lot better now and can breath better. Perfume smells better on me and I smell better overall. I still get a craving for a cig once in awhile, but it's the thought of getting sick that keeps me from giving in.

Prince, my older brother could do that, kinda smoke when the situation warrants it. He won more money making bets on quitting smoking.

i saw a sign the other day that read "Now Serving COLD SNUS" - is there a reason to use them refrigerated?
Posted by D on 2010-10-18:
Inat.....It keeps better in the store..
