    My mouth is vile, but I cant face chewing gum. My CDC says to avoid as it makes you more hungry.....personally it doesnt for me, it tides me over.

    hiya i have it as i am very consious of my breath stench! But i only have it for a few mins suck all the mint out and then put it in the bin. As another down side is when you have chewing gum, your stomach prepares itself for food. When there is no food coming a)it can make you hungry and b) over time it can cause stomach ulcers!
