Since this is the off topic forum... I'll throw this curve ball out there...

Are there any Nerfers out there (and I know if there are any, it'll be the older Nerfers) that use smokeless tobacco products such as dip or chew?


I'm just curious. :blush:

See you may be confused.. it's the younger nerfers that tend to be stupid..

Snide comments and jokes aside, I’m not sure I can really grasp the dipping or chewing. Even people I know who have or do chew say it still makes them sick to their stomachs. I suppose like many things it’s an acquired taste. Sorry, I’m sure you’ve probably heard this sort of thing before but it truly do confuse me.

If this was meant to be more of a ‘just wanted to know’ thing and not a discussion for everyone sorry for the intrusion.

I'm a football player so usually on game days, I'll take a dip to relax. As far as everyday use, no. It's not an everyday thing. I live in the south, so it's a pretty common thing.

I'm just curious about everyone else.


Edit: Ninja, you're fine. I just wanted to know, but this is open for discussion. People getting sick to their stomach usually means they had way too much niccotine and they're way too "buzzed."

And YES I know what it does to you, so if you're going to rag on about how bad tobacco is, then save it for the health education class.

I figure everyone who’s been born in the past 30 years knows it’s not good for you. Guess that’s one of the reasons I don’t get why it’s so common (I live in the south too). Everyone has they’re Achilles' heel or some bad habits I guess, but the fact it’s so rampant among sports players and people normally health conscious is just counter productive.

Well, I understand your opinions. I agree that tobacco products aren't good at all, but since I'm stupid (B)), I'll take a dip every now and then.

Not to get way off topic, but... Halfling, what position do you play in football?

I usualy play fullback, and thats what I will play this year too. But will probably get some playing time in at offensive and defesive lineman.

I'm a big tight end, or what one would call a tight end. It's really the "Y" wide reciever position or slot reciever, but they call it tight end. When we go goal line or sets with a tight end, I move on to the inside. They tried to move me to tackle last year, but I was too small weighing in at 225 pounds, but I had the height at 6'5". They finally settled me down at tight end and I love it. B)

By the way, fullback is a very fun position... isolating on the linebacker is always fun. B)

I have some very strong urges sometimes. But when they come up, I take some FBR and I really wear that down. It helps. Try it.

Haha, I've actualy chewed 2" stefans before, pretty entertaining...

Starbuck, what age division are you in and how old are you? Maybe a football thread should be created...

I wanted to try to smoke once, so my Mama let me.

I wanted to try getting drunk once, so my Mama let me.

I don't smoke, and I don't drink but twice a year. I have gotten drunk on 2 occasions in my 25 years upon this earth. I believe when she allowed me to try it in front of her, these acts really lost their "coolness". I never had to rebel and "act" adult.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that really seems like the only real reasons for an educated young person to get involved in harmful activites: Peer pressure. I'm all for everything in moderation, so I'm honestly not bashing anyone who's posted in this topic. If tobacco is your vice, make it your one...I hate seeing people who drink themselves stupid after eating themselves sick, and smoking themselves into oblivion.

Stay healthy people, so I can see you in the Field of Foam.

Good post, Trouble.

I'm 18, Halfling. I play for my high school. Starting a football thread would be nifty since it's almost that time...
