| | Need Advice!! years of using "spit tobacco"
Hi, I have been using spit tobacco("snuff" "chewing tobacco") daily since I was 18. I am now 28. I recently quit for about a year and a half. Recent stressful situations have promted me to start back again. I have about three dips a day--(I used to dip about a can a day). I know that my gums have receeded some because of use.
I go to my dentist regularly and he does not know that I use snuff. He has never said that he saw any warning signs of cancer or anything. I know that it is not healthy. But I was wondering if anyone knew the chance of me contracting mouth cancer from the continued use of spit tobacco. Or if there is anyone who has or have used spit tobacco and have any information they would like to share.
There is not much on the internet about the subject. I mostly find articles about smoking. Everyone in my family dips so it is hard to get an objective opinion. Thanks to anyone who responds to this post. Thanks.
