    I quit smoking about a month ago and picked up dipping in its place. Im in the military and heading to Iraq for the second time so thats my excuse. My question is does chewing tobacco have any adverse affects as far as cardio fitness goes? Obviously smoking does and I know dipping isnt exactly a healthy alternative overall but my main priority right now is cardio fitness. thanks.

    As far as I know, it doesn't have the same adverse effects as smoking would. The main thing with smoking is that it jacks up your lungs so breathing properly becomes a problem.

    With dip/chew, the only thing you need to worry about is the levels of nicotine in your system which (as far as I know) won't hinder an athletic performance by any noticeable amount, hence why baseball players choose it as an alternative to smoking.

    I had a fuckin navy corpsman say it might because its a vaso restrictor which I guess means that its harder to pump blood. Think theres any truth to this?

    slight... but not enough to effect your performance in the field. every single person I know in the armed forces dips.

    i really wish you brolies would throw that dip away......

    yes i know maine you love it, i wish u would quit it though broseph!!!

    nothing good comes from dipping.. and before anyone gets angry at me i dipped for 4 years straight before i quit grizzlies, skoal, cope, etc etc. cope pouches is a good way to ween yourself off in order to quit.

    Dipping makes as much sense as squatting in a fucking flannel shirt.

    taking any form of nicotine to the point where you are buzzed depresses the CNA so it's a performance inhibitor. baseball players dip to calm the nerves.

    I thought you could still get mouth cancer from it. I could be wrong though.
