Avatar m tn I have been using snuff/chewing tobacco for about 25 years. Within this time period I was able to quit for about 3 years. It took all I had...literally. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. One bad night at work and I relapse. I am currently going through a lot of stress but I know that I need to quit again. I am very reluctant about using any pharmaceuticals...... does anyone have any suggestions?

Avatar f tn You are already familiar with the malefic effect of smoking. Tobacco products contain nicotine in it and it is addictive. Due to this nicotine people are not able to quit smoking. E cigarettes, legal smoking blends has been promoted as healthy alternative of tobacco products recently. E cigarettes with or with out nicotine are available in the market. These are also available in different flavors. These will definitely help you in quitting smoking.
Avatar m tn You could consider using over the counter aids like nicorette chewing gum or you could get a prescription for Chantix. I'm not as familiar with it with chewing tobacco but my assumption is that it works the same since it address the nicotine addiction. You could always have a discussion with your dentist or primary care physician.
Avatar n tn If you chew tobacco, you have bigger problems than oral herpes. Chewing tobacco is like oral cancer waiting to happen. It's more likely than not related to your habit. Consider chewing gum instead of tobacco.
Avatar n tn Now that you have divulged the chewing tobacco habit, I would definitely have an oral surgeon examine you to be sure.
Avatar m tn Now would all the work of just putting the permanent crown on, make my tooth sensitive when I am biting down on stuff? I am find with most things, except for the hard stuff, like chips or peanuts and it has only been three days, should I give it more time? Does my bite need to be adjusted? She did adjust the crown some before she finally cemented it down. Any advice?
Avatar m tn Chewing smokeless tobaco is documented to be associated with oral cancer. Cessation of smokeless tobacco is advised.
Avatar f tn Actually here in india, we have chewing tobacco which we spit after chewing it. Though some doctor advised that tobacco had nothing to do with pancreatitics...however some days that it can lead to pancreatic cancer. I understand that intake of chewing tobacco is unsafe but i am unable to quit it. I have tried lots of time but to no avail. Can chewing tobacco really aggravate my pancreas problem..at the moment i do see any symptoms but fears worse looking at some doctors comments....
639543 tn?1297027634 Yes you are over reacting. If your dh decides to chew that is his choice you don't have to like it but you can't conrol what he does. My dh dips and I could care less. I would worry if you find a phone number in the bathroom not chewing tobacco. I know it's gross but honestly in marriage there a bigger things to worry about. Good luck.
Avatar m tn [11] The amount of nicotine absorbed by the body from smoking depends on many factors, including the type of tobacco, whether the smoke is inhaled, and whether a filter is used. For chewing tobacco, dipping tobacco, snus and snuff, which are held in the mouth between the lip and gum, or taken in the nose, the amount released into the body tends to be much greater than smoked tobacco. Nicotine is metabolized in the liver by cytochrome P450 enzymes (mostly CYP2A6, and also by CYP2B6).
Avatar m tn Smokeless tobacco products come in different forms but are not a safe substitute for tobacco smoking. These can still cause cancer and other health problems such as mouth, tongue, and throat cancer; cancer in the esophagus; increased risk of heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke; addiction to nicotine; leukoplakia; receding gums; bone loss around the roots of the teeth; tooth loss; stained teeth and even bad breath. It is important that you weigh all the pros and cons.
Avatar m tn Hi I stopped chewing tobacco 4 days ago. I started chewing in November and chewed about 3-4 times a day up until 4 days ago when I quit. I have read that the physical withdrawal symptoms peak on day three. Does anyone know what the common withdrawal symptoms are? I am constipated, get headaches, feel dizzy off and on throughout the day, and the weirdest one is my nose is congested and clariton d barely clears it up. Is it normal to have withdrawal effects that include nasal congestion?
Avatar m tn Ok so I have a chronic problem of chewing tobacco. I chew a pack of tobacco every 15 to 30 mins. If I dont for even an hour, I start experiencing withdrawals. I have on my own tried stopping this really bad habit but all attempts have gone in vain. I have been chewing tobacco from the past 5 years. I also had a drug abuse problem and I was very successful at stopping that. Tobacco should be easier but for some reason, it seems more difficult! Any advice I can get here?

Avatar m tn O.K. why are there not any "stop dipping or chewing classes"? Or are there any?
Avatar f tn My dentist said they were fine and that root problems can show up later (but he saw no problems). I had the bite adjusted on my lower, and it is a little better than before...but I am worried. Does this sound like root problems, or an infection?Thanks for the help!
19880027 tn?1485894768 For the about 15 years I've been chewing tobacco and smoking it for almost 26 years. I'm 35 and it's been a very long run that I thoroughly enjoyed. Now when it's time to hang it up there's no support for those of us that chew tobacco. There's stop smoking just about everywhere you look and I gave up smoking November of 2016. Today is day 8 tobacco free and all I can think about is eating but I'm on a monitored diet.
Avatar m tn First off call your doctor. Chewing tobacco is just as bad as smoking, if not worse. It could be your lungs clearing out, but it could be the juice from the chew getting into your lungs. So call your doctor just to be safe.
Avatar n tn s still sore to chew on the tooth with any kind of food. I have just been through so much with this tooth since June that I have been very disapointed in the lack of progress with getting my mouth back to normal with no pain or sensitivity. This crown also continues to feel abnormal in my mouth like it's too big and heavy. My natural teeth feel so lightweight in conjuction to this object in my mouth. He did a ton of adjusting on it before he even cemented it on permanently.
Avatar n tn He attempted to fix it by replacing the old amalgam filling and sealing over the cracks with a new epoxy resin filling, which left me with a tooth that was painful when chewing/biting. My dentist checked the bite on the tooth and found out that it was painful only on one corner of the molar. He filed it down a bit, and I spend 4 weeks waiting to see if it would settle down, which it hasn't. So my dentist suggested crowning the tooth as the next step.
Avatar n tn I had started experiencing some sharp pain every once in a while upon chewing on that tooth. My regular dentist thought it had symptoms of being cracked. I am seeing a 2nd dentist for help with TMJ problems, and he recently,suggested replacing that #19 filling, as well as the one in #18, with onlays, because the fillings were quite large. Upon removing the fillings, he explained that they were much larger than he expected, and that crowns should be done instead of onlays.
Avatar m tn I have no idea aboutthroat cancer, but in general cancer is unlikely unless you can connect to a cause, chewing tobacco and smoking comes to my mind as examples. Even these usually take a number of years of exposure. Have you tried posting on the cancer community?
Avatar f tn In leucoplakia there is excessive growth of cells in the mouth with white patches. Smoking and tobacco chewing increase risk of developing leucoplakia.Fungal infections like candidiasis, syphilis can lead to white patches in the mouth. Stay away from alcohol. Get it seen by a doctor. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn Recently my fiance has made some major changes in his life. He's been chewing tobacco and smoking marajuana for years and just cold turkey quit. This past week he has been complaining that his tongue feels swollen and he has lots of little white painful bumps on his tongue which i believe is thrust.
