In brief: Bad oral habit

Gum chewing is not about the gum or its sweetness.
It is about manifesting a compulsive behaviors through the mouth. Seek a consultation with a therapist who manages habits that are delirious to your health. Over the last 38 years, I have seen individuals who require extensive enamel reconstruction from this habit. Still it is better than smoking or chewing tobacco. Only slightly.
