I migrated from tobacco to nicotine pouches (I know, silly) and now have moved to nicotine free pouches (yay). I love having a pouch in, but my problem is that I want it to be almost not noticeable. Zyn pouch size was great for this. The teaza pouches definitely are not.

Do you have any suggestions for a smaller, but flavor packed option?

A good addition to the website might be a pouch comparison listing.

I’m trying to quit chewing Redman. I’m looking for a nicotine pouch that does not have artificial sweetners. Artificial sweetners give me headache.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Everyone,

Stan

I always felt Grape Smokey Mountain tasted a lot like Redman, I think they come in pouches, NO NICOTINE, not sure on the sweetener

Been clean for about a year but just relapsed and had a dip of Copenhagen. Been chewing the Costco nicotine gum since then and it has really worked. But since I’ve just taken a real dip I realized I just like the taste over anything. Are there any non tobacco products that have the same taste as Copenhagen? P

Any non tobacco alternatives that taste similar to Skoal Classic Mint Pouches? I’m currently using Baccoff Classic Mint, but am curious if there are any products closer in pouch size and flavor. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I appreciate the swift response! I am weaning off the full size Skoal pouches. Bandits are the smaller pouches (never tried them). I found the Baccoff pouch size too small and the flavor was not my forte. I understand nothing will be 100 percent spot on, but I will definitely give Hooch and Triumph a try!

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey there everyone, My boyfriend has decided to quit Chewing. He is on day 5!!! He has been chewing for about 15 years, about a can a day I would say. I am so proud of him and want to be as supportive as possible through this. I know it is rough.. I can see it. I work for my local Public Health in the Tobacco reduction program and I have never been a user of nicotine besides the occupational Hookah in High school.. so I don’t know what hes really going through so I wanted to reach out to you all and ask what was the best thing for others to do for you when you were in your being days of this adventure.

I’m here because I want to help him and who better to ask then You guys.

Thanks for your time.

: I just found out that my husband has been dipping and has been hiding it and lying to me about it since last October. I only found out because I found his stash….. I don’t know what to do. I want to help him, but I’m so angry that he lied to me. We have been married for almost two years and this is the first time we have had blantant honesty issues in our marriage. Any help?

Look, it’s snuff. Relax. People who are stressed must find a release somewhere. Be glad it was snuff and not another woman’s parties. Ask him why he’s been rubbing snuff. You can’t just be bridezilla and just accuse him or flood him with questions. Just ask once, “what’s got you so stressed out?” If he doesn’t answer, let him come to you. Just let him know that you’re there for him. Remember, it’s sickness and in health. You need to be his rock when he is weak. It’s nothing really to freak out about. But find the source of the problem and fix it.

Chewie… just found a NEW alternative tonight. Company is called (Fully Loaded). Flavors: Wintergreen, Wintermint, & Cherry. The products appear to be a long cut and are offer in 3 Levels (Nicotine, 50% Nicotine, No Nicotine) just like Triumph and Elicit. I haven’t used any alternatives in over a year and as of this February… 5 years Copenhagen free of a 26 year habit.

Very Cool! Haven’t heard of those pouches before… will have to look into them.

Also, how flimsy is the Fully Loaded can? That was my only issue with Elicit and Triumph… still think that BaccOff and Hooch have the best cans on the market.

Found two more alternatives today… ZapDip “cool mint” (chewzbrands.com) and Grit “wintergreen” and “mint” loose and pouches (gritchew.com).

Hey Chewie… received and tried all three Fully Loaded products. To me, a pretty good substitute overall, but all were way to “spicy”. The cherry had a definite Robatusin taste to it… both Wintergreen and Wintermint were very flavorful. The can and wrapper were a little less desirable. Had to butcher the retaining wrapper to even open it and once open, can is extremely flimsy. Look forward to your energies though and I’ll cut and paste when up. Take care!

I tried all three flavors, cherry probably being the best of them. I actually really enjoyed all three… cherry just seemed to be the better of the three. As far as consistency, it was really good. Flavor lasted a good while as well. Nice but to it too. I think the cans are flimsy, most of the fake stuff do have flimsy cans. I don’t use these as much anymore, but I gotta say, this stuff was pretty dam good. I’ve always liked the consistency of Hooch, but the flavor often ran dry. This stuff is flavorful. Very enjoyable.

I totally know where you are coming from. I quit cold turkey after dipping for 16 years around the clock. People around me urged me to do this write up and I finally did.

I think you will find some of the ways that I staved off the urges helpful.

I am at 5 months and still get the cravings. when I do, I ignore for a few days, then go buy a can of “fake snuff’. It really does help the cravings enough to get through it.

Everyone, I need all the help I can get…I don’t want to sound like a bitch but, I’ve dipped for the good part of 3-4 years. I dipped my last can yesterday and decided I was done! I am beyond twitchy, I have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) which seems like it has gotten worse already. I cant sit still, I feel like I’m on the verge of completely freaking the F out…When I quit smoking back in August, I quit cold turkey after smoking for 8 years. I never had any cravings or feelings like I do right now. I have been chewing the same damn piece of gum since I woke up. I need any and all advise I can get to help…

hey man! it IS gone from your body, head games now (the nicotine lie) I’ve found if you confront the urge head on, it’s like a wave in the ocean ride it up to the peak and ride it down..feel the pain….draw it out and yell at her “Is that all you got”! don’t try to hide from the craving, draw it closer and you’ll find it really isn’t THAT bad….

You know your habits….. prepare for them. what ever they are that first dip after coffee have a snack ready. use the fake stuff and think about the next rush between
break and lunch. this way you are ahead of the BITCH.
