... said the tobacco made him nauseous but he gets cravings. He wants to try using a gum so that he can quit using nicotine all together. He is also a recovering addict from opiates and on medication for that. He would like to quit that also, one step at a time... anyway my question is what type of gum would be the safest and most helpful so he can start working on obtaining life without dependency? Thank you for your time!

Do you have health insurance? Try calling the customer service number on your card and ask them if they have a smoking cessation program. Some of them do and they offer smoking cessation aids at a free or discounted price. Some also offer over the phone counselling or meetings for counselling. It is worth looking into. Your husband can also speak with your healthcare provider about smoking cessation. There are a few drugs that can help like Chantix and Zyban. He could also recommend which gum to use. There are different strengths. Also try the American Lung Association website. They have tips for smoking cessation on there as well. Good Luck to him and congratulations on making a decision that is the single best thing he can do for his health-stop smoking!
