Choose Nicorette Original Chewing Gum to help control your nicotine intake.
Whether you’re reducing one cigarette at a time or quitting for good, Nicorette Gum acts to help you deal with cravings.
It gives you control over how much nicotine you use, so you can address your withdrawal symptoms as they happen. A single Nicorette 2g chewing gum will be enough to satisfy the craving, without delivering as much nicotine as a real cigarette.
When used correctly, Nicorette gum can significantly improve your chances of quitting smoking successfully versus willpower alone.
How does Nicorette chewing gum work?
Each piece of Nicorette gum delivers a controlled amount of nicotine into your body. The nicotine in each 2g piece of chewing gum is absorbed quickly through your mouth and gums, relieving unpleasant withdrawal symptoms as soon as they strike.
Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal may include;
- irritability, frustration or anger
- difficulty concentrating
- increased hunger or weight gain
- craving for cigarettes
- decreased heart rate
If you carry Nicorette original chewing gum with you while you are trying to stop smoking, you will have enough nicotine to satisfy the craving and stick to your resolve.
How much Nicorette chewing gum do I need?
The amount of Nicorette original chewing gum you need will depend on how many cigarettes you used to smoke daily. If you start with the Full Strength 4mg Gum, you can switch to the low strength Nicorette 2mg gum during the reduction stage.
As a rough guide, most people start by using between 8-12 and up to 15 pieces of nicotine gum each day.
It’s advisable to use the gum for three months. During that time, you reduce the number of pieces you chew.
When you have reduced to the point where you are only using 1 or 2 pieces a day, you should be able to stop completely.
