While trying to quit smoking/chewing gutka, one must understand that there are two sides to be considered.
1. Firstly the psychological implication, where one is habituated and has triggers associated with it. For eg: On waking up, drinking tea/coffee, post lunch, while drinking alcohol, etc. Thus, for successful quitting, one has to overcome these triggers which associate you with smoking/chewing gutka.
