I think it might simply be a substitute for smoking where or when you are not supposed to or it might also be a substitute for eating (remember, he was a bit upset about his "Fat Elvis" period around 1965).
Don't know about John of course, but I've used it for both of these, and it might not be such an horrific addiction after all. It just comes quite handy sometimes. Besides, in Germany at least it was the rage in the 50s and early 60s as people thought of it as something sensational brought to Europe by US soldiers. And I'm quite sure I've seen all of the Fabs chew every once in a while, notably Macca in this bit where they ask him about John's assassination and he says this thing about it being a drag.
