In Sweden we have a special kind of tobacco called snus which you don’t smoke but just put in your mouth. I have been using this on and off since I was about 17 years old and it is very common in Sweden. I decided to give it up again after having been using it for the last 6 months and it is pretty tough in the beginning.
It feels like either I will be super depressed (the right side) or my mind will melt and float into the sky (the left side). In the end it is just a matter of time since the nicotine eventually leaves your body and the receptors in your brain stop asking for it but it takes about 3 months and can be pretty rough sometimes.
