The best way for me to take snus is in los formed into a prilla and then wrapped in a thin rice paper. If you are having trouble buying snus in your country make it yourself: get a load of air-cured tobacco and then pasteurise it... mix in some food grade glycerine and you're good to go pretty much.

A year to the day without a smoke for me. I'm getting good at giving up smoking now - I've done it at least 6 times. :)

Easier said than done for some people... some people quit then regret it, get an empty feeling... this is the third way... the harm reduction route... not quit or die!

Grow your own. It isn't hard, and both the seeds and the books on how to cure it are available online.

homegrown baccy is pretty tricky from seed to smoke and takes a long time. but i'm not discouraging you. the results are fantastic and the smell is fantastic. smoking some now that i cured from last summer. hung between paper in the dark gives a blond smooth smoke. i'm a turd for smoking baccy but i'm clinically addicted so i want to do it with some style..
