    Just as an experiment you should try replacing your nicotine gum with regular, sugar-free chewing gum. Maybe it's more of an oral fixation thing.

    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.
    Your mind becomes such a slave to them it really feels like something is missing when you don't have them.

    It will pass if you just get over the initial withdrawal.

    No. It isn't. Chewing gum is cheaper and easier to buy in flavors that I like. It's not the gum, it's the nicotine.
