trying to quit the American Cancer

Society recommends certain things to

help you get over the addiction starting

with nicotine replacement products true

because that's so important I mean

nicotine is such a powerful addiction

getting through that initially can be

very tough but there's some good

products that you can use and it'll

Scott you mentioned in the video that

you're you really like that oral

fixation and you know there's some much

healthier things you can put in there

even you know shredded jerky seeds like

pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds

Stassi Oh nuts you know carry a pack of

these around and it'll make a big

difference there's the addiction which

you absolutely know about to the

nicotine but then again there's that

oral fixation so gum is something that

will also help these are the non tobacco

snuff products that are totally benign

but they have the same taste you like

peppermint right so we're actually going

things in a gift basket including the

peppermint so that you have something

for the oral fixation but more
