Addiction Medicine Specialist 's  Response
I recommend you obtain a tobacco substitute, such as a nicotine patch, gum, or spray. This will ease your withdrawal from gutkha and prevent relapse. If this is ineffective, there are stronger medicines available from a physician, such as bupriprion and Chantix
