Smokeless Alternatives

Part of the reason that quitting chew is so difficult is that it’s not just a mental & chemical battle. There is also a very physical part of breaking nicotine’s hold on us. For some of us, the oral fixation is one of the most difficult parts of our quits. If you’ve had something in your lip/mouth for the past 15 years your body gets used to it… take that away (along with all the nicotine that you’re losing) and you’re bound to be a little on the irritable side. Below is a list of alternatives to smokeless tobacco (also known as fake dip or fake tobacco) that will help you get past the oral fixation.

  1. I dip Copenhagen Mint Long Cut. What do you recommend that would be the closest?

  2. I use Grizzely Wintergreen Pouches and Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches. What suggestions do you have to replace those?

    The main thing for me is the feel of something in my lip that has a slight burn.

  3. I reckon the top 3 are the best ones? If not, what are the top 3 you’d recommend.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hey Jeremiah – it really all depends what flavor / brand you’re trying to substitute for. Let me know what you’re looking for, happy to point you in the right direction.

    • I chewed primarily Skoal Straight and Redman leaf – there is nothing that exactly takes the place of tobacco, but after trying nearly all of the non-tobacco products my favorites are Bacc-off pouches and Hooch Keylime rough cut. I also like the Hooch fat pack pouches. As Chewie says, “The farther away from tobacco I get I’m preferring the pouches more.”

  4. Any good substitute for Kodiak Longcut?

    • Hey Rae – I was a Kodiak Wintergreen guy for nearly 16 years (along with pit stops for Skoal Cherry along the way).

      The good news is there are a SLEW of great alternatives out there. I’d suggest starting with either Hooch Wintergreen, Smokey Mountain Wintergreen or Bac-Off Wintergreen. There are a couple of varieties as well.

      Hooch offers a “rough cut” https://www.killthecan.org/hooch-rough-cut-review-new-formula/ which isn’t QUITE long cut, but close.

      They original Wintergreen has long been my standard bearer of best Wintergreen on the market: https://www.killthecan.org/hooch-snuff-review/

      Smokey Mountain has a great consistency but it’s a little too “Skoal Wintergreen” for me. https://www.killthecan.org/smokey-mountain-snuff-review/

      Finally, Bacc-Off Wintergreen comes in Wintergreen, Extra Wintergreen and Energized Wintergreen. Each have their own merits / tastes. https://www.killthecan.org/bacc-off-review/

      Sorry if this is more than you were looking for. I tend to be a bit overzealous when it comes to this stuff 😉

      Let me know how I can help ~ Chewie

    • None of these fake dips really have the same flavor of the real shit. The key, try as many as you can, find one you like….don’t use nicotine anymore.
      I was a Skoal Wintergreen guy myself, Triumph was hands down, my favorite of the litter. I liked all they offered too, they had Wintergreen, Classic, Mint and Cinnamon. Classic and Wintergreen were.my favorite. Mint was probably #3.
      If you like heat, Hooch has a spit fire flavor that is very, very warm.
      When I first started dipping, Hawkens was what I started with. I’ve always felt, Wintergreen Smokey Mountain tastes a lot like Hawkens. And Smokey Mountain Straight, tastes a lot like Cope.
      But the key to these, as I said, is finding one that “will do”. None of this stuff is like the real shit, but they are definitely some very good alternatives out there that have kept me clean for almost 5 years. Find one, stop using nicotine!
