I chewed for probably close to 10 years. I quit the day someone walked into my work (retail) missing their lower jaw. Not that that says much, as i currently smoke.
I would be careful personally - there are a lot of chemicals in chew, and if you're putting that in your mouth, some of it is going to get ingested.
Just my 2 cents as a former chewer.
