Rubbing snuff means rubbing ones gums with chewing tobacco- right? Anyway there are programs that can help you to stop using tobacco. Check through Health Tap ask more questions. Tobacco (nicotine) is very addictive, more addictive than heroin. It might be easy to stop, harder to stay stop. Congrats on your first step learning more about quitting. This is an important first step!

Oh snuff! I misread it as "stuff" Medicine yes - reading, evidently not.

In brief: Tobacco cessation
Programs work as well with snuff, chewing tobacco and other forms of nicotine ingestion as they do with smoking cigarettes.
Snus get people hooked by absorption of nicotine through the oral mucous membranes. Nicotine replacement therapy with patches, lozenges etc. Is a usual first step. Bupropion and varenicline (chantix) may be second steps. A formal program is very useful.
