Smoke free/Nicotine dependent

When I began smoking it felt like a part of my DNA was unlocked. The feeling of smoking felt like something that was always supposed to be there. My grandparents smoked, my parents smoked, and from a early age I saw my sister smoke. I didnt start smoking until my early 20s when a relationship went bad and I was feeling rebellious. However, I instantly became a one pack to even more a day smoker. I am 6 months smoke free but it took 4 tries to get here. Quitting was the hardest thing I have ever done. The problem is I still am dependent on nicotine lozenges (2mg) and know I need to cut back at some point. I just can't judge when I should cut back. The cigarettes for me was all or nothing. Weening off on the nicotine seems very difficult to me at the moment. Any suggestions on next steps?
