I'm new to snuff, and I'm wondering, how long do you keep a pinch in before you blow your nose? How fast is the nicotine from snuff absorbed? I mean, I don't want to keep the pinch in just to have it sit there after it's finished doing its job - any more than I would want to keep sucking on the filter of a cigarette I've stubbed out - but at the same time, I want to reap all the goodness I can from my pinch. Is most of the nicotine absorbed once the initial burn has worn off? I'm just confused about this. With a cigarette, cigar, or pipe, you know when it's over. With snuff and snus, it's very open-ended. I could practically use smoking my cigarette as a kitchen timer, whereas with non-combustive forms of tobacco it's very non-definitive. What about when you take a pinch of snuff and then sneeze almost immediately thereafter - do you get anything from that, or is it just a waste of tobacco?
