  •  It's a quit smoking forum (2+ / 0-)

    Not necessarily a quit nicotine forum, per se.  Some may choose not to do that.  Others may not be able.  I'm not going to avoid awarding very real kudos to those who quit smoking just because they're still using nicotine in another form.

    Nor is it particularly helpful to misrepresent the dangers of nicotine, which are fairly low.  Swedish snus, so far, have shown no detectable cancer risk and no increase in risk in any other disease.  At all.

    If you look, I neither endorse nor decry the use of nicotine (quite apart from smoking, which is awful for you).  Other than as a treatment for disease, which falls under the same endorsement as any medication--use with doctor's approval and monitoring.

    I'm aware that most people simply fail when they quit cold turkey for whatever reason.  If this helps them quit smoking, I think that's grand.
