Smokers often find themselves in places where they are not allowed to smoke, such as workplaces and restaurants, or in situation where they would like to respect the people around them. Chewing tobacco represents an alternative to smoking tobacco, as nicotine is released by putting a small amount of tobacco under your lip. Chew bags are small portions of chewing tobacco that has been cut, rather than pressed (like in the case of Swedish Snus). They come in either earthy/herbal/citrus or mint flavours.
