    When you drink alcohol you dont have to spit any of it out like you do with chewing tobacco, which also stains your teeth.

    Because spitting out tobacco juice is just gross. Respectable people don't want to see that.

    It’s foreign to a lot of people who find the wad in the cheek or lower lip, stained teeth, and commonly used “spit bottle” revolting, where alcohol is simply frowned upon by teetotalers

    I'm in the UK and I've never come across anyone chewing tobacco (I've only ever seen it on TV).

    I get the idea that chewing tobacco involves spitting which is never socially acceptable. Also, most people drink alcohol but few people chew tobacco - as I said, I've never come across anyone doing it.

    When people chew tobacco, they do not swallow their saliva. And the chewing creates a lot of saliva .. which is then spit out, usually into a container just FOR that called a "spitoon".

    Gross. Unsanitary too, possible spreading of germs..

    When you drink alcohol, the only time it leaves your mouth is when you are vomitting.
