I've never had a substance put its fangs in me other than nicotine. I have chewed for 15 years. Dad chews, my older brothers chew/did, most of my friends chew/did, and where I grew up it is just what guys do. Have tried almost every drug that you can take (short of meth or anything you need a needle for) and it hasn't ever made me feel like I need to do it again. Same way with alcohol, but the damn nicotine is a bitch.
I've quit 15 times with results that vary from over a month (several times) to just a couple days. I have even substituted chew with a cigarette a time or two a day to curb the nicotine withdraws and then 3 weeks later I am smoking half a pack a day!!!
I just need to quit being a bitch and do it..........I've also been saying that for years too!!
