I quit smoking and started using the patch and then switched to nicorette gum. I was dignosed with lung cancer 3 years later. I had 1/2 of my right lung removed and didn't require chemo. I continued to chew the gum. At that time the gum wasn't so tasteful as it is now.
I find now, that I cannot stop chewing nicorette. I am allergic to all artificial sweeteners and I can't find a gum to replace nicorette with that has sugar. I find that I prefer the taste of nicorette to anything with sugar that I can find, which is very seldom.
What can I do to get away from chewing gum? I feel my teeth are suffering from the constant chewing, but I know the patch just won't cut it for me at this point.
Hmmm... talk to your doctor about it? I almost suggested taking up smoking, but that was more a joke and not very funny.
That is a toughy so keep doing searches on google. Think of every way you can word it and perhaps you'll find a reasonable solution..
