    I did give up smoking a few years ago, so this is something to avoid.

      I did too.

      But I would eat a dish flavoured with fine cigar or pipe tobacco, just to see what it was like. 🙂

        Tobacco is addictive. I think that I will stay away.

        Eating is addictive. I know. I tried to stop a few times and suffered withdrawal pangs. Every time I quit smoking, an abscess forms in one lung. As far as doctors can say, it’s a mass of scar tissue, nothing nasty. If you don’t smoke, don’t start, but if you need a mental boost, try a nicotine patch like college kids use. Nicotine isn’t addictive, nor is it nearly as dangerous as Hitler claimed. He was the first to claim tobacco causes cancer, then told researchers to prove it. The UK Labour Party had moved into nazism and claimed it. Manchester U and it’s sister college, Penn State, both deeply into nazim, chimed in with that and global warming.

        Today, there’s a ton of things that show use of tobacco can be beneficial. Post shtf, people will be hunting for it as a luxury if not as medical. Tobacco was so valued as a medicinal, it was found in a grave, said to be 10,000 years old, near the Arctic Circle. Unless for medical, do not inhale! 86% of people with allergic asthma smoke. As part of an international group asked why we smoke, I said it kills the things that want to kill us.

        That it is; I should know, I’ve quit twice! 🙂

        There have been study results seeming to indicate that nicotine can prevent or ameliorate WuFlu symptoms, as well…

        According to Germany, Russia, China, Japan and other research by nations, smokers do not get corona. I think it’s like 1.2% of smokers compared to 26% of nonsmokers.

        Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Termite the dog snuck away with a sandal (standard winter wear here) and tried to eat it. Right now he’s hiding because, yes, he knew better but did it anyway.

    Sounds gross to me and I love tobacco. When we raised it, a mere quarter acre, we had to guard it constantly from deer, make strong fences to keep cattle, goats, and horses out of it. While its natives to the lower 48, parts of eastern Canada and all points south, it’s hard to find in the wild. Animals will eat it to the ground when they find it. It’s bitter, nasty even when green, and if you ever smoke the rustica (wild) you’ll get stoned.

      I know it has to be cured to be smoked, or chewed / dipped / snus, or I guess eaten. 🙂

        Chaw, chico! One does not eat tobacco, but rather enjoys the magic.

        I agree; I did chaw and dip and nasal snuff and Swedish snus.

        And cigars and cigarillos. And Burmese cheroots.

        Only kind of tobacco I didn’t do was cigarettes, or pipes – though actually, I once smoked a hand-rolled cigarette filled with pipe tobacco, and I smoked a cigarette once in Europe.

        I even smoked shisha, i.e. Arab / Turkish / Persian tobacco, from a hookah…

        Makorka is interesting, a cheap Russian cigarette. But, I never cared for the taste of newspaper as a smoke. Can’t read Russian anyway, so why bother buying them LOL.

        Yes; Burmese cheroots contain bits of newspaper, whether as filler or filter, not sure. I know this because one broke on me, and I found newspaper, cardboard, and more…

        They make your tongue go numb, and the ash has an annoying tendency to re-ignite, which can mean burnt holes in clothes.

        But little old Burmese grandmothers swear by them, so they can’t be all bad.

        Seriously, look up Burmese cheroot, and you’ll see all sorts of images of wrinkled old Asian grandmas smoking big honking green cheroots, will make you laugh. 🙂

        LOL! I had a foreman once, who chewed. He P.O.ed an older woman who smacked him on the back. He swallowed and a few minutes later was worshiping the porcelain god like hew was hungover.
