Yes, nicotine pouches and snus can definitely help you quit smoking. They provide an alternative means to get nicotine and replicate most of the feelings you feel when smoking a cigarette, and you may find that after trying nicotine pouches, you will have no desire to go back to smoking ever again. This is one of the main reasons people try these pouches for the first time, and there are numerous reports of people having successfully quit smoking from nicotine pouches.
For example, here’s one person who stopped smoking immediately after trying snus for the first time:
First impression was that the taste was interesting but pretty decent. But within a minute or two, the nicotine that I craved started flowing and it was heavenly. After 15 mins or so, I took the portion out and lit a cigarette and suddenly I wanted the snus again. I put out the cigarette and grabbed another portion. (source)
And all kinds of comments from people who stopped smoking thanks to snus:
Interestingly, as you’ll see, there are many reports of people who tried everything else to quit smoking and were only able to quit after discovering nicotine pouches. This is all anecdotal, of course, and there haven’t been many studies (if any?) rigorously trialing whether nicotine pouches should help you quit smoking more than any other method or more than taking anything else, such as nicorete gum and the like. But the anecdotal evidence definitely seems to suggest that nicotine pouches are one of the best ways for smokers to quit smoking.
Therefore, if you’re a smoker trying or hoping to quit, it’s definitely worth at least trying nicotine pouches and see if you take a liking to them. You just might find that, like the example at the top of this page, you vastly prefer it over smoking and never go back to cigarettes again.
