Is it bad to leave snuff in your nose for a long time?

I usually only take snuff at night, when I've having a drink and watching a movie at the end of the day.  I also almost exclusively use scotch snuffs, which don't tend to clog the nose.  Because of this, I often forget to blow my nose before going to bed, so the snuff ends up staying in my nose overnight.  Does this have a negative impact, as far as health is concerned?  I remember Uncle Squinty saying something about blowing your nose after ten minutes because the tobacco contains some compound that's not healthy (something that begins with a T; I can't remember what it is).

    TSNAs, tobacco-specific nitrosamines. Squinty's got the point.

    I wash my nostrils before bed scrupulously (and a few times through the day, when I feel extensive build-up or clogged).

    Now, really, concerning back drip (tobacco alkaloids-satiated mucus and saliva), nasal snuff is oral tobacco product after all with every related harm and threat. Just have a small read about nornicotine dangers.

    All health warnings about possible mouth cancer, gum disease and tooth loss seems true and undisputable in this context.

    Don't get me wrong, though, I rinse my nose for personal comfort and hygiene first and foremost.
  • I always awaken in the morning blowing big chunks of yesterday's snuff out. Been doing this for 30 years, and I'm not dead yet. YMMV
  • Thanks, guys.  Very helpful.
