I bought nicotine gum recently to quit vaping and I’m hoping it still has the same effectiveness and makes my appetite disappear. Does anyone have any experience with Nicotine gum?

I used it quite a lot last year. It's vile, I always take half of it and chew it together with normal gum to make it taste better. Not sure about appetite suppression, but it works as a surprisingly good laxative.

I've chewed it for a little over a year now. I'm not really sure how much it helps with restriction, beyond how any gum would help (having something in my mouth), but it's the only thing that pulls me out of really bad funks. Idk how I lived through some of those moods before.

Doesn't matter where I've been. Only where I am, and where I'm going. Losing until I like how I look and feel satisfied.

I don't know the effect on appetite, but I used nicotine gum to get through the bar exam. It keeps the withdrawal away. But it takes longer to work than vaping and you'll probably still want to vape. I thought it actually tasted pretty nice, kind of minty and peppery.

leaves a weird taste but as long as you only chew it sometimes it’s ok just don’t smoke while chewing gum

Haven't tried it (yet) but a friend of mine has and he told me you have to put it in your bottom gums after chewing it up so it enters your bloodstream and you don't just swallow everything. Not sure how true that is but just a tip

Never worked for me - recently started using Nordic Spirit (nicotine pouches that go under your lip) and they've been reaaally good for quitting. Went from 20 a day to 0 straight away, been working for the past 4 weeks :)

They're £6.50 for a packet in the UK, and smokes are about £12 a pack, plus they last much longer as you can keep them in for about an hour at a time. The flavour's mild (either menthol or wild-berries), but the first few times using them are pretty weird and take a little getting used to. If you order from their site you get your first pack for free (at least in the UK, I think)
