The good news is I've been smoke free for over a year.

The bad news is I'm still addicted to nicotine, and taking the lozenge.

I decided to switch to the gum today.  The theory is that the alarm bells in my brain go off when the lozenge is gone, signaling I need another.  With the gum, it doesn't dissolve, and theoretically I should end up using less and less.

I think you'd be better off just going cold turkey. I tried the gum and just ended up being addicted to the gum.

Good luck it took me about 6 months to get off the gum but I've been smoke free 12 years.

No you aren't. It's in your head.



You're addicted to a habit. Replace that habit with anything.

Oh I most certainly am addicted to nicotine.  I can assure you of that.

Switch to Chantix and be nicotine free in 10 days. And that includes the week you'll smoke while taking it.



Seriously. No side effects for me. And very little withdrawal symptoms.



I Smoked for 35+ years and tried everything. Nicotine free now for two years.



Good luck
