How long have you been taking snuff?

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I couldn't find anything in the search.

    Im 22 and I've been snuffing 6 years, started at college taking it every so often, last 2 or 3 years its been a full time thing.

    For the first 13 years, I only took it once or twice a year. It was more of a novelty to me then. I've been a proper snufftaker for about two and half years now.

    about 4 years solid for me. I messed around with a couple of times years before, but didn't become serious until 08 when I wanted to give up the smokes. I loved the cigs but snuffing is far more enjoyable.
  • only 2 months ... with help from some friends who suggested it as help with the cigarettes and snus. i am glad i finally came around and hope this is a lifetime adventure.
  • Its been 4 months for me :-P . But it sure has grown on me fast... Also used it to quit smoking, worked like a charm :-) .

    12 or 13 years (I can't remember exactly when I first started, but I believe it was in early 1998)
  • about a year I suppose
  • BodgerBodger Member
    8 years.
  • Just a couple years.
  • The past 6 months about the only thing I've done is snuff, Before that on and off for about 5 years.

  • On and off for about 40 years. More on than off these days, but I still enjoy my pipes as well.
  • Wow.
    I bow to you, ermtony!
  • 10 months although I did use snuff for a time when I was a teenager.

    16 years almost 17 not so seriously but pretty consistently. then I tried to use it more seriously sometime in the 2000s the one place I could get any stoped carrying it then went out of bussiness (the ass pony that owned that store would only order snuff for me if I'd basicaly buy the whole lot at once, typical for him then he'd wonder why he didn't have loyal customers.)

    Then I discovered online retailers and have been dedicated since then.

    My first pinch was 7-8 years ago (I can remember that it was Gawith Apricot). Since then there has been periods when I snuffed throughout the day every day and ones when I snuffed once a month. I just don't have addiction personality. Nevertheless I love snuff and re-started snuffing in the end of last year.
  • About 4 years

    My first snuffing was about 5 years ago or so, as a kind of novelty.. But only been since around the start of this year that it's become a more regular thing.
  • How did you hear about it?
  • Oh I'm sure I first saw it in a movie as a kid, but then I don't know 10 years ago I was goin through the mall and into a pipe shop that use to be there and the owner asked if I'd ever taken snuff. I said I hadn't and he tapped out a bit of Packard's Club for me...and all I can say is wow it took my breath away...literally...but even through the initial discomfort I knew it was something I'd like.
  • 5 years for me.

  • About 1 year i think
  • It'll be two years for me come next month since I first began taking snuff. Although if you want to count the first time I tried "snuff," I could go back about another year to a silly mistake involving snorting some Copenhagen.

    @snuffster - Dunno if that question was general, or meant specifically for me, but I heard about it years ago when a box of Lowen Prise was being passed around at a pub I used to go to regularly, like I say about 5 years ago, and I was offered some.. The others weren't regular snuff users, it seemed to be more of a one-off thing, but I liked it! And got some of my own soon afterwards, and sort of got into it.. but it's been more recently that I've 'done it' (oo-er!) more regularly.
  • I also started in June 2009. I first tried what I could get locally... President and Ozona Raspberry. I didn't really get into snuffing until I tried English snuffs a few months later.
  • I think I heard about snuff via Charles Dickens, or some other British author from the same era.
