Nicotine gum versus vaping

I turn to you all in desperation.

I smoked alot for 35 years.

Then I quit with nicotine gum

Now, five years on, I can't get off the gum and chew around 40 of a day - one every 20 minutes or so. I seem to never have one out of my mouth. Worse than fags.

Does vaping actually take away the desire for a smoke?

I need to so something - my teeth are falling out!

Well done with giving up stinky fags, i never got on with gum, it gave me evil indigestion. Vaping is amazing and i have no desire to smoke. Wish i had started sooner. Not had a fag in 6 weeks and wont ever again. Even after copious amounts of booze over xmas i didnt want one. Def go for it.

Well done for quitting! Gum is definitely not worse than fags although I'm sorry your teeth are suffering. Have you been to the dentist to check it is actually the chewing that is causing the problems? Gum disease is very common in smokers and ex-smokers so do get checked out if you haven't already.

Switching to vaping will save you lots of money and will be lots more pleasurable, while having a similar harm profile to gum. Go for it!

Feel some degree of trepidation as love/hate gum in the same way i loved/hated the cigs.

But obviously some real vaping advocates here so will take the counsel of MN (again) and try vaping. I see there is a mass of illumination on the subject here so will read and digest then buy one! thanks - I know my gums will thank me

Iv been a gum addict in the past and have started gaping today.
I still feel the craving for gum and fags separately.
Hoping the vapour will stop it all
