A lot of people that I know dip snuff or chew. Mostly Copenhagen, Wintergreen Skoal & Levi. I've also noticed that a large number of them started at a very young age, much younger than most smokers, including myself. I was just wondering what most of you guys use and at what age did you start.

I dip Red Seal now because it is one of the cheaper brands. I started dipping Skoal when I was 13.

11 & 13 seem to be common ages that keep popping up. I myself started using Copenhagen when I was 13 and by the time I was 15 my highschool baseball coach was bumming dips from me after school at practice.

I started at about sixteen with Skoal Wintergreen. Almost 18 years later, I'm still dippin', but with the less exspensive Red Seal brand. Honestly, I wished I never would have tried it. It's very addictive stuff. I still say it's a safer alternative to cigarettes though ... and I still have all my teeth and healthy gums [:D] Shane <---- gotta pinch in right now!

Started dipping Copenhagen at 16, still dip copenhagen on payday but usually Timberwolf fine cut. I started because i smoked in high school and it was easier to get away with dipping in class than trying to sneak a smoke. Been about 10 years now. I've quit probably 20 times, longest was about a month.

Started in kindergarten on Skoal regular cut, had a can in my sock by 2nd grade. Started smoking at 10, quit dipping from age 20 to 26 then quit smoking full time and started dipping again. For some reason I like it too much to quit.

Started in 9th grade with Skoal Wintergreen then graduated to Copenhagen right after 12th grade. Dipped Copenhagen for about 11 years. Got to where I was dipping a can and a half a day. Quit dipping February 2001. Tried a pinch a few months ago and got sick (actually thought I was going to [puke]

I started with Red Man when I was 20 years old. I soon went to King Bee twist and Bruton snuff. I used those for about 15 years and quit cold turkey after seeing the results of mouth cancer on a man here in Tennessee. When the cutting was done he had lost his lips, cheek, and part of his jaw. I aint no handsome man but I'd like to at least keep my face in tact. Step away from that shit boys. It's poison and will kill about half of the people that use it. I'm done preaching to you and will leave you with this. If your gonna be stupid, then you'd better be tough.

Started back in 1975 in high school with Skoal at about 50 cents a can, would buy a roll of 10 cans and stick them in the freezer. Went off and on with this awful habit until I was 40 years old, smoked cigarettes for several years as well. Cigarettes are easier to quit. I could chew anywhere and nobody knew. I never had to spit, just kept enjoying that flavor anywhere, anytime. I couldn't understand the young dudes who spit into bottles and cups, very disgusting! No need to have that shit where it would disgust others and then somebody would pick the wrong beer bottle and that warm spit would go sliding down some poor suckers throat. At parties, it sometimes would be a innocent girl who suffered this bad experience. Anyway, I once loved the stuff but I'm sure glad I found the strength to quit.
