Brief Answer: Nicotine de-addiction is important Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Nicotine de-addiction is important to kick of the habit of cigarette smoking. I see many such patients in my OPD and its good that you could reduce the number to 10 a day by your self. From now on, it would be wise to decide a specific date on which you want to stop smoking,say 20 Feb 2014. Until then you have to reduce 1 cigarette every two days. When ever you have a feeling to take some extra cigarette then you may chew the nicogum as and when required. If that doesn't help you I would start you on Bupropion 150mg per day. This is a prescription medicine. You can visit a local doctor for a prescription. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback. In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link: Wish you good health, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.
