In all honesty, it might just be that I get bored and eat just for the heck of it, but I usually find myself wanting to snack on something just to have something in my mouth. Does anybody else experience this?

Yes; I think smoking is linked to oral fixation, etc. I smoked for 22 years and it was hard quitting but I finally did it.

I agree with Darius. I went from eating to smoking to eating to...chewing gum? I also have ALWAYS chewed pen caps and tops like there's no tomorrow. Surprisingly, I have never chipped a tooth :)

Oral fixation is actually kinda common.

Gum! Sugar free gum.

Often after a meal or snack I'll think "Gee I'd like something to munch on" when I KNOW I'm not hungry. It's just the chewing sensation I want. So I pop in some gum. 15 minutes later, I'm golden.

So, yes. Gum is handy! Er... mouthy! :D

I second this. Chewing on some sugar-free gum right now.
