Please excuse my English , Its not that good :)


I was somehow able to quit smoking after a lot of failed attempts .
Nicotine addiction is really hard to overcome

I have been using nicotine gums for the past 2 years
A pack of gums daily .
It has 9 gums in it .
That means i chew at least 9 gums daily .

Its like i cannot keep up with the pace of life if i cant chew nicotine gums .
Work is really dull too .

I have no idea how to stop that .

I must try harder .

If you want to quit cigarette i can help you with that
First it may look difficult , but its possible

I started the mints 15 years ago when I was pregnant, and stopped smoking but went back to it after the birth. Restarted on the mints around 3 years ago because I wanted to quit smoking before I was 40. But just got addicted to both and at the moment am smoking more than ever as I am having some stressful times.

I used to smoke too for every bad mood
Then i replaced it with nicotine gums and stopped inhaling smokes
I haven't smoked even 1 cigarette since the past 2 years .

But gums , i don't know how to stop it .

I cant find something to replace the gums

I am going through a lot of stress too which is why chew gums

But smoking is more dangerous compared to chewing nicotine gums

I dont know how to stop either at the moment. Everything is too hard so I am only doing the easy stuff and some days fail at that. Quitting anything seems too hard right now.

You’ve got to think, chewing gum is much better than smoking the toxic stuff that you would if you were smoking a normal cigarette.

just try and cut down maybe by one chewing gum a month. If not, maybe half a one. Don’t worry about it though. You’re still not smoking the real stuff.

You could possibly try swapping one out a month for actual gum? And slowly but surely, you will be chewing normal gum.
