Way to go...: The gum you're looking to use to help you quit smoking is very effective. It will help your body quit because it does supply the nicotine your body got used to from cigarettes. The biggest problem you will face is what to do with your hands. Smoking is a very manual habit. I euggest even chewing on a straw. Good kuck and congrats when you kick the habit.
