Can you smoke in your mouth?
Here’s how you do it: First, you need to click your tongue to the roof of your mouth while it’s closed but full of air for 30 seconds. And warmer air will hold more moisture — or water vapor — than cold air. Then as you slowly open your mouth, a puff of “cloud smoke” billows out.
Is it safe to smoke if you don’t inhale?
Yes, because it is very difficult not to inhale the smoke because you are breathing in the environment permeated by smoke.At a very minimum, you will have the lung cancer risk associated with side stream smoking. Also, the chemicals in tobacco smoke will still be absorbed by the oral mucosa, the cells lining the mouth.
Can you get addicted if you don’t inhale?
Yes. Even if the smoke is not inhaled, high levels of nicotine (the chemical that causes addiction) can still be absorbed into the body. A cigar smoker can get nicotine by two routes: by inhalation into the lungs and by absorption through the lining of the mouth.

Is your gag reflex affecting your oral health?
Don’t let your gag reflex get in the way of oral health at home, either. Talk with your dentist or doctor if you have difficulty controlling your gag reflex when brushing your teeth or cleaning your tongue.
What is the difference between gagging and swallowing?
Gagging is the opposite of swallowing. When you gag, two different parts at the back of your mouth work to close off entry to your throat: Your pharynx contracts, and your larynx pushes up. This is a defense mechanism to prevent something from being swallowed and ingested.
