I think the problem is that most of it is the habit not the addiction. Its the oral gratification.

Ya just have to find something else to shove in your mouth and suck on.

Just   don't tell me how purty my mouth is....

And from there the thread deteriorated....

Chew Hops man....they really work.

I've actually done that, and enjoyed it, but it's not smoking. More like a big, fat dip. I like smoking. A lot.

I have been the gambit...successfully now over a year I might add...I got my best help by

CHEWING hops...prefer flowers do not like the texture of pellets. Just a pinch between
the cheek and gum...amazing the effect of the alpha acids and resins that kind of numb
your tongue.  

Good luck on your adventure...

Oh and BTW, I am trying this method to cut down on eating food...just a pinch between
the cheek and gum...prolly get some new unheard of ailment from hops but for now...shrug...

Hop Cheek?

Pretty cool idea. Even better if it helps you quit.

I'll stick with my cigars.  8)

You should.*

From what I understand of the science, most of the nicotine absorbtion from these is through the nose and mouth, so inhaling is actually, in theory, completely optional. And they have some really amazing flavors - I've been vaping a blend called "Wyatt Earp" which is a very aromatic, pipe-tobacco sort of flavor. It's very nice.





* No, you shouldn't. They're bad for you.

I know, right? These things are brilliant for that!

Although the one interesting thing I learned is that most of the flavor in tobacco products comes from flavoring additives. Marlboros taste like Marlboros and Camels taste like Camels because they have a secret formula just like Coke that they spray on their dried 'baccy. I also learned that menthol is especially bad for you.
