Wanted some opinions about chewing smokless tobacco while treating Lyme. I get mixed opinions when searching online. I have been using smokless tobacco for years & I just wanted to make sure it won't hurt my chances when treating Lyme.

I do notice when use it I start feeling kinda bad but I've done it so long it's hard to quit. But I'm willing to quit if it's hurting my chances at getting better.

I don't know about affecting your lyme treatment....but I'd be concerned about the oral cancer it can cause.

Nicotine binds to some of the same receptors (nAChRs) as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the top contributors to making the Krebs Cycle work.

Too much ATC and your wired, to little and youll go from relaxed to having brain fog. There are other contributors the the krebs cycle and brain fog too though. Many lymies are already low>lyme brain.

Funny how much goggle spies on us now, even reads. When replying there is a quit chewing product add to the right thats never been there before.

I goggle acetylcholine (since I cant spell) and tobacco, then goggle was so specific in add choice that the add was a quite chewing tobacco add, (not smoking) .

After I commented the post then it went back to the usual adds on this site.

I see the chewing tobacco ad too and I didn’t search anything. I think it’s based off the text in this thread.

I still don't see one.

Now, I see an ad for a boat show that's close to my location.
Plus a bike store add.

I guess I'm getting different ads here in Canada.

Yep, I saw it again.

This targeted marketing is new to healing well.

Anyway, OP, ya, I got us off topic a little LOL
