Pay no attention to the non-chewers and dippers. There is nothing wrong with chewing and dipping tobacco. Everything is bad for you anyways....cigarettes, booze, certain foods...etc. Might as well enjoy something. I am a chewer and a dipper, depends on where I am and what I am doing. I used to smoke a lot. I have found out that though it is BAD for you, I enjoy smokeless tobacco best. Any chewing tobacco is exactly that. You chew it. Tobacco like Cope and Skoal is dipping tobacco, and you just place it between your cheek and gum and enjoy. Remember don't ever swallow the juices. If you are new and by accident swallow some juices, drink a glass of milk. This will settle your stomach. Also, a personal preference, I enjoy getting a piece of bubble gum, preferably grape flavored super bubble, bubble gum. Remember these that used to cost 2 cents!!!! well put the gum in your mouth and wet it down....don't chew it. Grab a wad of the Redman tobacco and place it in your hand. Place the wet gum in the middle and roll it up like a ball, keeping the gum in the middle. Once you roll it up, place it in your mouth and begin chewing. You will find the flavor of the gum and tobacco a great tasting combination. TRY IT, AND LET ME KNOW.
