    när jag får chansen, men det är inte så ofta nuförtiden, som jag sa, det är ju svårt att hitta här i australien.

    i do know how to make it though, at least i have recipes, but it's very difficult to get ahold of large enough quantities of tobacco to make a batch, and with the taxes on tobacco being so incredibly high, it's not really a cost-effective alternative to smoking normal cigarettes. if i were in sweden still i'd use it every day- it's much better than smoking in so many different ways- cheaper, healthier and it doesn't stink as much.

    ah, nostalgia :cry:

    haha japp nationaldagen igår + Sverige - Danmark i fotboll :p Blev lite för mycket öl ! haha


    ... Okey but do you need a recipe to get snus ? Or did I read totally wrong? :p I agree that its way better then smoking , the only bad thing about it is that your gums ( tandkött ) can start to hurt like hell. I dont snuff so much now just because of my tandkött is killing me. Even my dentist told my to stop with snus :< ..

    i have recipes to make snus with, but to make it i need about a kilo of raw tobacco- which i could probably score off a crooked farmer, but it would be quite risky and totally illegal, otherwise i'd have to make it with rolling tobacco, which costs about $25 (150 SEK) per 50g, so it's not really cost-effective.

    as for your gums, my gum-lip line receded a bit after using snus, but it was never anything too serious, and i never felt much pain. how long have you been using for? how much do you use? it must be a lot to get those kind of side-effects, or maybe that's just what happens when you swallow it ;-)

    the juices from snus don't contain the same levels of shit that north american snuff brands do, and is meant to be swallowed. It's not chewing tobacco, it is what it is. Chew and snuff are processed differently, hence why you don't swallow.

    ^ i'm well aware of the difference between the two, i was introduced to both at the same time more than ten years ago when i was living with a group of american and norwegian exchange students- i know that the scandinavian gear produces a lot less juice than the american variety, but regardless of this, the snus itself is emphatically not meant to be swallowed, unless things have changed radically in swedish snus production since i was there last. otherwise, every public urinal in sweden (and here in newcastle, sometimes, given our high norwegian student population) would not be littered with little snus tea-bags and spent grounds. i would highly advise against swallowing any kind of tobacco, people in australia use water than has been steeped in cigarette butts to poison trees here. swallowing snus might not kill you, but it isn't particularly good for you.
    please note- i am referring to the snus itself- not the juices you generate. it's not a problem at all to swallow whatever piddling amount of saliva you generate when using snus, conversely you should spit out the juice from american product, which will make a much, much higher amount of spit-juice than snus. in neither case would i recommend swallowing the tobacco itself, because snus will make you mildly ill, if not as sick as the american stuff.

    Dig yer screen name, homie.

    My old guitarist used to be into the whole chew thing. Would always spit into a plastic bottle, was disgusting.

    Never been much of a smoker, cept when I'm drinking. Can't imagine that this would be my kinda thing.

    Seems to be a real trend amongst dry fans though. It's amazing how many have those snus can imprints on the back pockets.

    snus is a swedish (or more generally scandinavian/nordic) form of smoke-free tobacco that is usually sold in a circular tin. snus translates directly into english 'snuff', although we are more likely to consider snuff to be the dry, nasally-ingested tobacco, as opposed to the 'wet snuff' to which snus refers, which is usually ingested through the upper lip and gums. north americans have a similar product, to which they usually refer as 'dipping tobacco' or 'dip', although there are some differences between the two.

    most tobacco users in sweden, especially male, usually use snus instead of cigarettes, because it is much cheaper and supposedly much healthier. being a swedish brand, nudie jeans are often known to feature the 'snus-ring', as regularly carrying the snus-tin would leave a clear impression in the contrast fading- however, i'm pretty sure a lot of guys out there proabably use a jam-lid to fake the look, because it's not a product that's widely available outside of scandinavia.

    Cool that this thread is still going on, 8 years after it was created. Long Live SNUS!!!

    Yes, they did make a couple of styles with the snus ring pre-faded. I remember it was a RR, but not what it was called. I think it had "Replica" in the name.
