    Endless gum chewing

    Since I quit smoking 6 weeks ago, I endlessly chew gum (trident). Is it bad for you to endlessly chew sugar-free gum? It has aspartame, but I imagine that the dose is quite low compared to that taken by endless diet soda drinkers. Thoughts?

    Give it time. If you quit smoking then you can quit chewing sugar free gum in say 6 months or a year when you feel you have the smoking habit curbed permanently.

    I chew gum all day, everyday. I will chew a single peice of Extra for about 8 hours. I can actually tuck it away in my cheek, and eat lunch, and then start chewing again. Some people think this is gross, but I think its talent

    Be careful if you swallow gum that is sugar free, because it can be more harmful.

    I chew, like, a pack a night at work, but rarely chew any at all away from work. I quit smoking, um, almost 12 years ago so I don't think that's it. Maybe it's the stress of work or somethin'. I'm on vacation right now and have no urge whatsoever to chew gum.
    I like pie!

    try eating baby carrots...they help control cravings and are low in calories and fat!
    You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.

    Along the same lines, honeycomb works pretty well, too, if you're not worried about long-lasting flavor. Just try to get most of the sweet stuff off of there first if you're worried about calories.

    carrots arent really low in calories... they are a starchy vegetable. Eat celery if you want low calories.

    A study just came out, within the last month or two showing NO negative effects from long term aspartame use. So rest assured, you are safe.

    Amazing how 50-100 different studdies done over a period of 5 years can all say different things.

    If you have followed the strong following of people negatively effected by aspartame you wouldn't be saying the same thing.

    That's true enough. I must say, tho, I blow better bubbles with sugar-free gum for some reason.

    I don't know. Let's put it this way, ASAP! Unfortunately, the soonest might not be very soon at all. My vacation for October got messed up so I had to take it now. I don't have a vehicle that'll make it out there, and probably won't until October/November sometime. Trust me, I'm comin' back, tho!
