That was only for a few weeks. They would fill up with my spit inadvertently, and it was gross as hell, but it helped me for the short term.

I second this method. I did this as well. At work and home, I would still go outside at the normal times I would have smoked. I would then use the cut straw trick. I would also bring an individual wrapper of Smarties and eat them one by one to help with the oral fixation.
I am a patient boy...I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait.

I went with chocolate. Put on a nice layer of pudge around my belly, but it helped me quit.

Then eventually I cut out the chocolate.

Cold turkey.
One day I smoked. The next day I didn't.
No specific aids or new habits, but I did put on some weight.
That leveled off over a few months.

I'm smarter than you think you are.
