With alcohol drinking there are people who enjoy smoking along with it. A person who doesn’t smoke may smoke when they drink actually craving cigarettes. A factor in this might be due to social drinking and feeling, wanting to smoke because others are doing it around them. It may be similar to peer-pressure but the pressure is perhaps more in their mind. No one is likely to be pressuring them into smoking.
With drinking there are people who chew, dip or do snuff. Chewing, dipping or doing snuff is more probable to be a habit outside of drinking.
Chewing or dipping may increase alcohol effectiveness.
Cigarette smoking may increase alcohol effectiveness also since with cigarettes there is a decrease in oxygen just like with alcohol which when combined cigarettes may actually exasperate alcohol effectiveness and longevity.
A first time user of chew, dip or snuff can experience a high, a temporary rush that lasts for as long as the stuff is in their mouth plus they can get immediate sores-ulcers on the gums. The rush and high of dip or snuff might taper down from the initial experience or the user may increase amounts to recapture that first time experience if possible. Putting dip or snuff into play with alcohol could be a way to do it.
Chewing or dipping while drinking or afterwards may come with an ulterior motive. It could be done to disguise the scent of alcohol breath. Alcohol has a pretty strong odor and comes in different flavors and scents but so do chews and dips. Tuck some chew or dip in the mouth and its smell will be the direct odor that fumes out when the person is talking or opens their mouth. A person may still smell like alcohol when they sweat but between the two odors of chew or dip and alcohol it may be extremely difficult to decipher the difference if the person isn’t tipsy or staggering drunk.
If the person isn’t tipsy or staggering drunk the chew or dip may do well to cover the trace of alcohol breath. Chew or dips can come in mint or fruity flavors and other “assorted flavors” which offer a great disguise.
Chew or dip won’t do anything for a Breathalyzer test and may raise the intoxication numbers.
Chew or dip is in small enough packages or cans that they can be carried and concealed without much effort although repetition of cans against materials can eventually wear the material into a circle.
