you will need to replace it with calmness (jhana)

jhana is easy… just sit being calm

ie Ramana Maharshi

You may go through physical nicotine withdrawals for 2-3 weeks and psychological withdrawals for an indefinite period of time. Your risk of developing mouth cancer will also begin to decline over time. You’ll save money. It’s also good practice for resisting and overcoming craving. You may even be slightly closer to realizing nibbana, the ending of craving.

Your cancer risk will decline, and your respiratory and digestive health will improve. You will also lose a disgusting habit.

nothing bad will happen
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

You'll be less likely to snuff it prematurely.

I have a friend who used snuff. He got cancer at age 30ish and they had to remove his entire tongue and now he can hardly talk anymore. :(

Nothing bad long term. You might be cranky and crave it for a few days, but that will pass and then your health will be better off for having stopped.

Good question :meditate:
And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

This was the last word of the Tathagata.

Healthier body = healthier mind = better grounds for practise

Or something like that
"If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

You can expect your handkerchiefs henceforth to be varnished with snot alone, rather than with snot and snuff.
But oh! it turn'd poor Strephon's Bowels,
When he beheld and smelt the Towels,
Begumm'd, bematter'd, and beslim'd
With Dirt, and Sweat, and Ear-Wax grim'd.
No Object Strephon's Eye escapes,
Here Pettycoats in frowzy Heaps;
Nor be the Handkerchiefs forgot
All varnish'd o'er with Snuff and Snot.
The Stockings, why shou'd I expose,
Stain'd with the Marks of stinking Toes;

etc., etc.

(Jonathan Swift, The Lady’s Dressing Room)
“Keep to your own pastures, bhikkhus, walk in the haunts where your fathers roamed.
If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”
— Cakkavattisīhanāda Sutta
