I know a few people and there are threads on this forum about the gum. You should read them......it's not good news as people are just replacing one addiction for another.

I used Chantix which has some controversy attached to it too. For me, it worked like a miracle. After smoking for 38+ years, I took the medication for a month and a half (3 months is suggested) and was successful.
Most people say that cold turkey is the way to go. A wonderful website that supports that method is whyquitdotcom. Read the articles and look through the "motivation" column and that is really all the incentive you will ever need.
Smoking IS the most powerful addiction and it's power of us is not physical, but EMOTIONAL. Once you realize the reasons you smoke, the sooner you will be able to prepare your quit.
Support IS essential and willpower and understanding is what you need to quit. It is do-able.
Good luck!

I was able to get gum for free through a program they have at my husbands work. Have you called your insurance and asked them if they have a program? Or your human resource department? Walmart has the cheapest gum. I know the 4mg and 2mg are priced differently but I think they are around $30 for 120 pieces? I agree with Kathy Jo though, I know people who have been chewing the gum for years: gave up one addiction for the other. Good luck to you. Keep reaching out to others for support. This is essential for me in my quit.

The gum is expensive, all aids are pricey. I quit cold turkey due to the fact that I figured if I was gonna do it, I may as well not prolong the agony. lol  Actually it was not too bad. Staying quit is the trick.  I have days where I would sell my soul for a smoke! An addiction is an addiction whether it be drugs, alcohol, smoking, pot, food, you name it. Once addicted always addicted. Take one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. How you do it is unique and what works for you individually. Hint, get something for anxiety ahead of the game from your doctor.

Hey.I heard to ease cravings take a bath with Epsom salt and it pulls some of the nicotine and toxins out of your bloodstream. Hope this helps!
