Quitting tobacco?

Ok so I have a chronic problem of chewing tobacco. I chew a pack of tobacco every 15 to 30 mins. If I dont for even an hour, I start experiencing withdrawals. I have on my own tried stopping this really bad habit but all attempts have gone in vain. I have been chewing tobacco from the past 5 years. I also had a drug abuse problem and I was very successful at stopping that. Tobacco should be easier but for some reason, it seems more difficult!

Any advice I can get here?

When people have reoccurring addictions, it usually means there needs to be some counseling. It is very common to switch to other addictions. I don't have a definate answer on tobacco but there is a smoking forum here.

Everybody I know tries giving me a reason or two to quit. And I myself want to break free from this addiction. I dont think words are going to help. Because I already have a motive. Its just that I cant tolerate the withdrawals. I feel really weird! And I had this addiction long before I got into drug abuse.
