Personal Motivation: Nicotine gum helps a lot of people quit but the feeling isn't the same. Some people 12 step programs work (nicotine anonymous). If this approach leaves you cold, find other ways of getting support. Don't worry about the fact that you haven't been able to quit. Keep looking for your personal motivation. You'll find it. Best wishes.
