No one knows: A minimal amount so assume any puts you at risk for disease. 1-2 times may infintessimily increase risk.

Short answer: No!: Just don't do it again! it is a disgusting and unhealthy habit. Not only is tobacco carcinogenic, but chewing it is unhygienic, addictive, and most chewing tobacco can cause tooth decay since it's loaded with sugar, and also can cause gum disease.
