The gum is easy to use, as long as you don't have problems with your teeth, gums, or jaw, and it works quickly to control cravings. It also helps keep your mouth busy so you don't reach for a cigarette. It’s sold over the counter, so you don’t need a prescription. The gum comes in several flavors, so it’s easy to find one you like.
