A 49-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

I am experiencing addiction to smokeless tobacco. I only use it before I go to sleep. I have had insomnia for years. I am over the insomnia. But, I have great fear and anxiety that if I don't use the tobacco before I go to sleep that I won't be able ?

Face your fear.: You need to recognize a habit is different than a physiological need. Take care.
