Hi Chuck:
We are in this together--I too am in the process of quitting. I am using Final Smoke, some concoction I found on the Web and it does seem to control urges. The kit also includes a concoction to control weight but I find that Altoids cinnamon chewing gum is a great substitute for both food and cigarettes.
I will also be interested to know how your spinal symptoms change, if at all: I've been having some increase in tingling, which has been interpreted as "nerve healing" by some and as loss of the anesthetic effect of nicotine, by others--any thoughts from this community would be appreciated!
