Addicted to Nicorette gum ??

Hi everybody,

So I quit smoking four months ago. All in all I have done ok, although I did have a cigarette a few weeks ago on a night out (it tasted awful).

But I seem to be now addicted to nictorette gum. I am going through about 10 to 15 a day. I have looked around the net and found, to my surprise, that they are actually quite addictive and people do have issues giving up nicotine substitutes.

So I was wondering is anybody else in the same boat or as anybody gone through the process of coming off nicotine gum and got any tips on easing the pain. I have tried giving up but I actually have craving for them and worse still I find the longer I go without the gum the craving for a real cigarette kicks in.

Kevin.

Try to wean yourself. Go down to the 2 mg and after awhile just do half a 2 mg. Try then eating it with regular gum. Little by little eat less and less. U CAN DO IT!!
