Product description

Please note that you must be in to sign for this delivery.

Nicorette Gum is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). It is used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine, which people get when they stop smoking or when they are cutting down the number of cigarettes they smoke while trying to stop smoking.

  • If you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, this product will help relieve your cravings
  • If you smoke 20 or fewer cigarettes a day, 2mg nicotine gum may be more appropriate 
     


When you stop smoking or cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke, your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing from the tobacco smoke. You may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (‘craving’). This shows that you were dependent on nicotine. 
 

When you chew Nicorette Gum nicotine is released and passes into your body through the lining of your mouth. The nicotine released from the gum is sufficient to relieve the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. It will also help to stop the craving to smoke.

How to Use

  • Most people use between 8 and 12 pieces of gum a day
  • You should not use more than 15 pieces a day
  • Use only one piece of gum at a time
  • Chew a piece of Nicorette Gum when you feel the urge to smoke
  • Only use one gum at a time and use the Nicorette Chewing Technique

 

The Nicorette Chewing Technique:

  1. Chew slowly until taste becomes strong
  2. Rest between gum and cheek
  3. Chew again when the taste has faded
  4. Keep chewing like this for about half an hour
  5. After this time the gum will have lost its strength and you should dispose of it carefully
