Son of a bitch...

I get enough of that ridiculously disgusting habit at the body shop I work at, full of a bunch of dirty, grimy guys. You mean to tell me I have to watch people spit into a cup in the fairly professional, definitely important, environment of ATC?? FML...

I switched from dip to Swedish snus (not the fake American crap). No spitting, most people can't even notice I have one in.

I'm surprised it isn't banned but to each their own I suppose. Though I'm not a fan of it either. Hell you have to walk 3/4 of a mile just to smoke a cig.

Sometimes management might have a problem with it, if that's your concern, be a man an learn to gut it. Or start putting it between your toes. Kids in high school used to do that. Supposedly has the same effect and you don't have to worry about mouth cancer.

I work with a guy who does. Definitely legal though local management may not approve and give their own interpretation. If you do and are worried about it being a problem, let me impart some wisdom. I smoke, but take dip (before snus was widely available) on long flights. A Finnish guy living in London I met was freaking out that I had any form of oral tobacco, I shared mine and he shared how they use it back home. They use it via syringe for dosing minus the needle and place it in the upper lip. Nobody knows its there and you don't have to spit. I've used all of 5 cans of dip since (clearly no expert) and I can eat a full meal with it in with zero problems.

I don't use the syringe because I seldom dip, the important thing is you don't have salivary glands in your upper mouth. No sickening tobacco juice. Works VERY well.

As a non user, I personally enjoy watching the few that do dip on position mistaking their spit cup for their drink!

I have no idea what the heck you're talking about. Guess I'm not the only one either. Anyway, I quit dipping after about 10 years of doing it, one of the most difficult things I've ever done was quitting. Dipping on position was glorious, although super unprofessional.
