Try snus, and by that I mean the REAL snus from Sweden, not this BS from Marlboro and Camel. Many who switched to snus ended up quitting cigs without intending to. You still get the nic hit, without the health hazards of smoking. 99% of the risk of cigarettes comes from the smoking of tobacco, not the nicotine itself. (Indeed, nicotine does not cause cancer.) Swedish snus is regulated as a food by the Swedish government, so must meet stricter standards than US tobacco. The pasteurization of snus kills the TSNAs (tobacco specific nitrosamines) in the tobacco. It is the TSNAs that cause cancer. There is a reason the Swedes have the lowest rates of cancer of any nation in the world and that reason is because snus, not smoking, is the preferred method of tobacco delivery in Sweden.
Snus is moist snuff, packaged in small individual teabag-like doses. You pop a 'portion' in your upper lip and leave it there for 1-3 hours. There is no spitting involved. It is no different than popping a breath mint in your mouth. It removes an individual's tobacco usage from the public to the private, where it always should have been. This means you can use snus in any and every nonsmoking area and no one will be the wiser.
You can order it direct from Sweden without paying an importation tax, provided the order is under $200. Purchase from either The Northerner or Buysnus.com. There are US sites that sell it, such as getsnus.com and premiumsnus.com, but the selection is nowhere near as complete as in Sweden. The only snus you can't purchase from Sweden is either Romeo y Julieta or Monte Christo, because both of those contain Cuban tobaccos. For further information from other snussers, check the Snuson forums.
Snus is available in an assortment of flavors. Bergamot (think Earl Grey tea) is the traditional flavoring, but mint, Violet, Pomegranate, Vanilla Mint, Licorice/Anis and juniper are also available. (Those who like gin martinis should sample Gotesborg Rape, affectionately known as 'goat rape.') As far as cost, I recently received an order of 21 cans which averaged out to $3.43 per can. It takes me 5 days to get through one can.There's no way one could smoke for 5 days on such a small amount of money.
(Snus also comes in a loose form, which is more for your money - 45-50 grams instead of 24 grams in a can of portions or 10 grams in can of mini-portions. There's a trick to working the loose such that a mudslide does not occur. I can work the loose, for upwards of an hour now without a mudslide, but that's mainly in preparation for growing and making my own, which will occur after the 2010 growing season.)http://www.northerner.com/http://www.buysnus.com/http://www.getsnus.com/http://www.premiumsnus.com/http://www.snuson.com/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snus
