Sounds like a good time to quit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never looked for chewing tobacco in PV, but there is a cigar making store just north of the river at the eastern bridge, and they have loose tobacco there. They may be able to help you figure something out.

thanks sally.. we got some thing called chewing tabaco from a shop called rizos.

then did some research on it and found it was quite harmfull to the health.

really i guess its time to give up or find the snus that the swedish are using.

Mason....do some research for photos of various forms of cancer of the mouth and you might decide you want to quit even faster. It's not pretty. :shock:

I still chewed during my first trip to vallarta (5 years ago)when I returned home I awoke one day and "mysteriously" I awoke one day and feared that I had a cancerous lump for better lack of a description.

It wasn't... and after 20 years of chewing Copenhagen (a Can a day for much of that) I quit cold turkey. I did not want to everhave that feeling again (especiallyt he needle they used for a biopsy sample)

I used this http://www.smokeysnuff.com/

good luck to you
