Is this a good way to help quit chew tobacco?

Im only 18 but i have been chewing tobacco since last summer. I know it doesnt sound like a long time but in that time ive racked up about 200 cans. I started out with skoal but when that didnt really buzz me anymore i switched to grizzly. I dont really know if it was actually a buzz but it calmed me down somehow and i felt better. Well i havnt gotten that buzz from grizzly in a while either. Ive been going through about 3 cans a week or more lately. But lately ive been having sores in my mouth and on my toung. Ive had dead skin on the inside of my lips at times but thats also been before i chewed but it certainly didnt get better when i started. This has kinda scared me when i started reading about all the side effects and stuff online today. I decided im quitting today. I think if i have gum a lot it would help. Also i was thinking about Jack Links beef jerky sold in cans like chew and used the same but it has no nicotine or anything in it just beef jerky. Would that be too similar to tobacco and highten my chances of a relapse or  does it sound like it might be a good idea? Thanks for any and all advice/stories.
