I tried the patch and the gum. Nothing worked. When ever I’ve tried to quite smoking before using the patch, gum or cold turkey I’d go back to smoking within 2 weeks. As soon as I had my first vape I stopped smoking. I still have 3 packs of cigarettes in the house and have no interest in picking one up. I love vaping mostly because me, my car and my garage just smell of fruit instead of stinking like smoke. I smoked for 30 years and will never go back to it thanks to vaping.
