I have been chewing tobacco since 15, nothing happened, I've got teeth. But I am addicted to it, want to quit, but can't. I used to drink day and night for 17 years; I quit easy but not chewing.

I am just hardnosed, think I can do anything, but can't quit tobacco chewing. I got strong mind, but I can't quit.
