let me inform you that chewing gutka is one of the most common cause of having cancer
yes its difficult to stop the habbit but you can do following
1.try to gradually decrease the number of times you are chewing for instance reduce one per week
2.try some sugar free chewing gums for a few times
3.driks lots of water and fruit juices ,that would clean your system of the toxins
hope if you follow these than you can gradually stop the habbit and then get your scaling done with your dentist

Thanks for writing to us.
Wow...Its a very nice question. It is killing habit. Go and see a doctor or go to a rehabilitation center. You can switch over to swoaph or Chewing Gum or go in for something like milan supari or passpass and later reduce the intake of this too.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
