Tobacco: It's not your mother's cigarettes or your father's chew any more. In fact, today's tobacco products are packaged more to look like they belong in a candy store -- and some, despite a federal flavoring law, can taste sweet too.

Tobacco is not stored next to candy in any store I've ever seen in the last 20 years.

If your trying to quit smoking you owe it to yourself to try Swedish snus. I was a pack a day smoker for well over 2 decades and tried everything to quit. I started to use Swedish snus last year and have not gone back to smokes. There are thousands if not tens of thousands of people who stopped smoking with Swedish snus. Statistically, Swedish snus in 90-98% safer than smoking.

Although nicotine is unhealthy it is not the worst part about tobacco products.
i was a smoker and or chewer for about 8 years, then i found SNUS. It has nicotine but is a much healthier alternative to smoking and dipping or chewing.
I have done it all and since giving up smoking for Snusing i feel better and am no longer rearanging my life to find places to smoke. I am still addictied to nictotine, but am positive that I am a healthier person.
Something that can help smokers deal with their addiction should not be demonized.
And there are experts that say Snusing is 90%-99% better than smoking.
Ill take that Untill i rid myself of the addiction.
