    I hear they are good as well but I figure if I'm still gonna be toxicating my body with nicotine I might as well get the lozenges or the patch it's basically the same thing plus e-cigarettes are really expensive.

    You have to go like 3 weels dry first. Then you start tasting how nasty it feels in your lungs and how nasty it tastes. You don't want one all the time after that
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    This is true. They taste horrible and make you feel sick after awhile.

    I'm not concerned about getting off the gum. As long as I'm not smoking, I don't care if I chew the gum till I die.

    I think nicotine itself is still harmful and I'm almost certain that drug lowers IQ.

    There's another alternative. Buy a Vaporizor. Most people use them for pot but vaporizor companies cannot advertise them for that purpose. No matter what plant matter is being smoked, be it pot or tobacco , it cuts out a huge amount of tars and carcinogens. There's even portable models.

    There are countless video reviews on different models on youtube.

    When I quit smoking, it was easy because I never felt any addiction even while I was a smoker. I simply stopped. Now I only smoke them when I am in a situation in which a cigarette would be irresistible. Which is when drinking.

    So I guess what I recommend is paying attention to when you really, really can't resist a cigarette, and then figure out creative ways to keep yourself from smoking for each of those situations. But really it will just come down to willpower. You have to remind yourself that you have control over your actions, and you can direct your mind, not be a slave to it.
