Good afternoon, Gents-
Partially due to my desire to curb my smoking/chewing habit, and partially due to my curiosity to try new things I ordered a few nasal snuffs.
Having watched a few youtubes and a read a few forums I ordered some Fribourg & Treyer Old Paris, McChrystal's Original and Genuine (as well as a small Highland Ice), Wilson's of Sharrow Irish Coffee, Toque Cherry Menthol, and then a few little 99 cent things just to sample.
While waiting for my snuff to arrive, I bought some American Dental Sweet Snuff at the grocery store. This stuff is really hard to sniff. There's no way for me to sniff it without it instantly being in my throat. After several sniffs it eventually quit stinging my nose, but it still went straight to my throat.
Yesterday, my snuff arrived (see picture; I included a couple of super speeds so you guys would feel at home). I love the McChrystal's (both types, which seem identical really). That stuff is fantastic. I'm trying to get into the Old Paris (which smells just like Skoal Straight), but I can't get a lot of flavor out of it. Those are the only ones I've tried.
I guess I'm writing this thread to ask for advice. All of the how-to's on the snuff forums talk about leaving the snuff in the front of your nose, and NOT getting it into your sinuses. I just don't see how this is possible without just taking some snuff and rubbing inside your nostril. Advice?
Also, there are a lot of comments about how long to leave the snuff in your nose before blowing it out. After several pinches yesterday my nose wasn't the slightest bit runny, and blowing my nose produced nothing.
Am I doing it right? I don't think I'll enjoy the flavors if I'm not doing this properly. Though, again, I love the McChrystal's. Help a snuff newbie out, please.
