Introductions / A Hello and My Experience with my first Snus Portion
« Last post by bbommarito on August 14, 2020, 12:23:16 PM »
First of all I wanted to quickly introduce myself.

I'm Brian Bommarito though most just call me Burrito. I'm US born and bred, and I am just getting into the Snus world.

I wanted to post my first experience using a portion. It may be useful for those who are hesitant or who have seen the worst of the worst on Youtube (Full cans of Siberia portions, etc.) My first portion was an Etten Original. It was not at all what I expected, but that was not a bad thing.

Quick bit of backstory: 20 year smoker, 2 packs a day. My usual cigarettes are Winston Whites so a fairly light cigarette. I spent a good couple of weeks watching beginner Snus videos and watching a lot of Snubie’s videos.

What I expected was an intense burn, extreme salty flavor, and a killer buzz. 8mg nic? That’s 8 cigarettes. I figured I would keep it in for ten minutes and spit it out.

Quite the opposite. I am now 40 minutes with the portion in. I still want a cigarette but being a chain smoker I know that’s my brain just wanting a cigarette not out of need but habit.

The buzz is mild, surprisingly so. Now I can see how people can do strong portions. The flavor is muted but I expected that given how dulled out my tastebuds are. Slight burn on the swallow but nothing unpleasant, and no stomach upset. Portion is a bit odd to keep in place but I will get used to that. And burn? Barely there, even at the beginning. And the saltiness...well I love salty anything so that is a nice bonus.

Hello I'm from Finland.

Little background:
I am 31 years old.
I started smoking few years ago (maybe 6 or something like that, it started with with drinking and smoking but eventually it catched on.
Later I found snus and I'd especially like the buzz that extreme strong snus (odens, siberia, r42, etc) gives you. I've also like milder snus if it tastes awesome (like general onyx).
I don't have car and as a student I rarely can afford the cost of travelling to sweden. So when I ran out of snus, it might be long time before getting more. I would love to stop smoking, have tried nicotine gum, tablets, etc and I also have 2 vapes (innokin proton and aramax power) but I still end up smoking.

Hi Thomas and welcome to the forum!

When it comes to snus it's all about personal preference.
I live in Lund, Sweden which is known for it's university. Along with the regular swedish students we have quite a few exchange students who, just like you, like to kick the habit of smoking.
Since i've been using snus for 20+ years, I often get questions about "Advice for beginners" and I like to push new people to try the traditional snusbrands to get a feel for how they like it or what they don't like.

I would recommend starting with the classics, Ettan Portion, General Portion and Göteborgs Rapé Portion. If you wish to start with babysteps there are miniportion, which could be a way to ease into the snusing.
I think these are marketed for women, but its basicly just a smaller variant of the regular portions (when I started snusing, I used miniportions but quickly started with the regular sizes)

Most people switching from smoking do get a nicotine kick the first time they use snus, if you get dizzy just take it out and sit down for a few minutes.

Browse around on the site your purchasing from and check out the different flavours and get a can of whatever interests you and test.

Chad also has quite a number of youtube videos I can recommend.

If you have any snus related questions, don't hesitate to either ask on forum or just PM me - i'd be happy to help!
