Good to know that you have realized that you need to quit gutka. Apart from being the most common cause of oral caner in india,it also causes multitude of problem in body like hypertension,cardiac problem ,liver and kidney disease as well as reproductive problems.
Best way t stop in quit completely.If you are highly motivated about quitting you are likely to succeed..Will power is most important thing.
Some people find meditation to be helpful when they are quiting. Another option is chewing something that's harmless like chewing-gum, Amla etc.
Hope you become successful in your endeavor.
