I don’t doubt that chewing gum helps some people to smoke less or to quit.

I also don’t doubt that chewing gum can delay eating when you’re hungry. Or get your bowels moving in the morning. Not for everybody.

What I’ve noticed is that although gum-chewing can delay consumption gratification, it can also elicit hunger pangs when the chewing action doesn’t produce anything of substance in the gut.

My suggestion is that you not chew gum too long – or not long enough so it makes you hungry. Regulate it.

Nicotine gum:

One might think that people who used to smoke shouldn’t use nicotine gum to stave off hunger, but for me it works short term. Chewing nicotine didn’t make me want a cigarette. In fact, it’s a bit uncomfortable. It can make you dizzy and a bit nervous, so use with caution if you choose to use.

If the reason you don’t stop smoking is because you’ll gain even more weight, you might want to give it a try. Follow instructions, or do what’s comfortable for you.
