Nicotrol Classic 2mg Gum 105 pieces
Nicotrol Gum is also used to help smokers who need to temporarily stop smoking e.g. on long air flights. Nicotrol Gum can also help reduce the amount of cigarettes smoked in smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit.
How Nicotrol Gum works
Smokers have both a physical reliance on nicotine (i.e. the body becomes dependent on nicotine) and a psychological reliance on the smoking habit.
When you give up smoking, your body will miss the effects of nicotine and you will miss the habit of smoking.
Nicotrol Gum helps you to tackle these two sides of the problem separately, instead of all at once.
It is your body's dependence on nicotine, which causes withdrawal symptoms when you suddenly stop smoking. Nicotine is an addictive substance. Symptoms may include irritability, restlessness, depression, weight gain, and craving for cigarettes.
Nicotrol Gum is intended to ease such withdrawal symptoms by providing your body with nicotine. This leaves your mind free to concentrate on overcoming your psychological desire to smoke.
