Nicorette Gum?
7 Days without smoking I'm using nicorette gum it seems to be helping, has anyone here used this method with good results? I'm a 15 yr smoker and this is my second quit.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated I'm new to this forum , I really want to be smoke free now I owe it to my kids and myself.

I've tried cold turkey several times with no success. this is my second quit first time was for 10 months with gum and this time with gum too but it seems harder than last time.

Gongrats on your 4 months!

My husband quit smoking 18 yrs ago using the nicorette gum.  He was a 25 yr smoker.  I quit using Chantix over 2 months ago.

Good luck!

I'm not a gum chewer so it was never an option but I do know someone that quit with the help of nicorette. I think it was her time.
Teko has a point though and that is, if you really want to, then just do it. Try reading through all of the stories at whyquit.com and it will make it easier for you to stay quit.
I used chantix and like any other aid, you have to stop at some point and face the demons : )
Good luck and hang in there.  Kathy Jo

I'm down to 2 2mg pieces a day and weaning down to 2mg by Monday.
My last piece (God Willing) will be on this coming Thursday.

I am so desperate to get off the gum.  Late at night I either have to chew a piece or shove peanut butter in my mouth.  Yes it has come to this folks.
I have all the determination but partly don't trust myself.

Keep your fingers crossed!
