It's ground up tobacco leaves in powder form. It comes in a tin canister the same way that chewing tobacco comes in. You put a tiny amount on the tip of your finger, and you sniff it up one nostril. You get an instant dose of nicotine.
I can understand the instant gratification part, but the whole process of sniffing powder up your nose seems a bit strange to me.
What Are the Side Effects?
Well, as with any nicotine product, there are always going to be some side effects. It's impossible to escape them all together.
Is it worth the risk?
I'd say not. If you do get oral cancer in your nose or throat or mouth, you might end up with no nose at all, or no jaw, or death.
Luckily, this trend is decreasing with time. It's mainly popular with young males, and even that number is decreasing. Young females tend to use other things. It's very rare to see a female with a tin canister of snuff in her pocket. I don't think I've personally ever seen it.
It has somewhat of a masculine vibe around it. Guys think it's cool.
But you still are addicted to nicotine.
You are still a slave. You still are not in control. Is that what you want?
Sniffing this up your nose for instant pleasure does not sound like the right way to go. It sounds dangerous. The fact you sneeze immediately afterwards is a telltale sign your body does not accept it. It tries to instantly get rid of it.
The risk of oral and nasal cancer does not sound too good, either. Can you imagine having your nose removed because you did this all your life? Doesn't sound like a good trade-off.
Don't even buy into this latest trend. It's all a big lie. Just don't do any of it. It's the only way to gain complete control of your life. Once you do that, you can do anything.
