NICORETTE Original 2mg 105 pieces
Nicorette Gum is also used to help smokers who need to temporarily stop smoking e.g. on long air flights. Nicorette Gum can also help reduce the amount of cigarettes smoked in smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit.
How Nicorette 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.
Nicorette 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.
Nicorette 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.
Usually 8-12 pieces per day, up to a maximum of 15 pieces to be used with smoking cessation programmes.
Chew gum slowly until the taste becomes strong. Rest gum between gum and cheek. Chew gum again when taste has faded.
