How to make a betel and areca nut chew and use it?
To make your own betel nut mixture, take an amount of betel nut ( about 1/4 nut is good) and break it into small pieces or powder. The pieces will be chewed, so you can break them up into any size you want. Then, wrap it and place the betel in the side of your mouth between the cheek and jaw, and chew it once in a while. Let the mixture remain in your mouth for an hour or longer, and DON’T swallow any saliva your mouth produces.
Try not to swallow much betel nut directly, it can cause an upset stomach. When finished, spit out the remaining mixture, rather than swallow it.
Note: When chewed, the stimulant effect can be felt almost immediately and it lasts for three to five hours.
