This issue has been addressed by the American Heart Association. Here is the link. The risk from smokeless tobacco products is much lower than from cigarettes, but there is still an increased risk of both fatal heart attack and stroke. If you have had a TIA, I would suggest you stop using these products.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
