    Hi,

    Just wondering if we are allowed nicotine gum? Today is my last day as a smoker!

    Hi amm

    Sorry, don't know the answer to your query but I am sure a knowledgeable person will pop along soon. Good luck giving up smoking - I gave up a 20 plus habit in the first week of August 2008 and haven't slipped up since. I had been a serious smoker since 1987.

    It really has been a positive move, I no longer get so breathless walking uphill or just walking distances in general. I used to hate smelling of nicotine so soon after stepping out of the shower and applying perfume. And I was able to change the terms of my mortgage thanks to saving well over £150 a month.

    I turned to food 'for comfort' as I was not on a diet at the time. Combining giving up smoking and doing CD sounds like a good idea, although you will have to judge if it is too much to do at one time. You sound very determined - perhaps if you can't have nicotine replacement you could try hypnosis, worked for me and my uncle who had smoked about 35 years.

    My friend Robert gave up about 4 years ago with Alan Carr method and he remains an enthusiastic promoter of its merits. I recommended it to another pal who thought it was the comedian on Channel 4!
    Keep us updated on how you get on.

    hey - from the list of ingredients you read out, not really sure.....:confused: and, chewing creates saliva and can make us feel hungry.........s'pose gum is better than fags ??!!!!!!

    I used Nicotine gum all the time whilst doing CD, didn`t seem to affect me.
    (mind you, I`m hooked on the gum, been on it for ages !!!)
