> my supervisor told me about this p-doc who he knows who substituted cigarettes for gum. she buys the greatest strength gum and chops it up into little pieces and chews a bit of gum when she would normally have a cigarette. i'm thinking... that might actually work for me. i have no plans to give up nicotene and i like to choose when to have a dose (so patches aren't optimal) but the gum strategy... might actually work since chewing is something to do and i can do it as often as i smoke... so... going to buy some gum this week too and give that a shot.

That's a great idea Alex. Why do you need to chop up the pieces? They are meant to be chewed whole. You don't chew them like normal gum. You chew it a bit to soften it up, hold it between your cheeks or under your tongue for a while (until the tingly weird taste/sensation goes away) and then you chew it again and hold it between your gums again and repeat until all the nicotine is gone, which takes about 30 mins. I think the gum is a lot healthier than smoking.
