I ran out of money to buy the tobacco to Roll my Own. However, I did a substitution for about 2 weeks before I no longer felt the hard urge. I did not use patches, nicotine gum, pills, or candy!
You can do it and stay healthy without nicotine additives still being pumped in. I used "STRAWS". You can hold it like a cigarette, breathe through it like inhaling a cigarette and even tap it like a cigarette (believe me that was one of my habits as much as smoking was tap, tap, tap).
Other people I've known who have quit used substitution of sugarless gum to drop the urge and no I'm not talking the nicotine gum. Try 5 gum from Wrigley, it has many different flavors to choose from.
