For four centuries or more, tobacco has been used for chewing, smoking and snuffing. Snuff is inserted in the nares or placed between the gum and cheek as a social custom practiced in many countries, particularly in the third world countries. Interestingly, there have been snuff users organisations in Britain whose activities include snuff-taking competitions.
