I Only Smoked Low Tar Cigarettes, Does This Affect the NRT Guidelines?

You should follow the guidelines of the various NRT programmes as to what is considered a suitable dosage. The number of cigarettes you smoke a day is a more important indicator than the nicotine content of the cigarettes that you smoke. The amount of nicotine you absorb though NRT is considerably less than you absorb through smoking so it is extremely unlikely that you will be exposed to an overdose of nicotine on NRT. Smokers generally have become used to administering nicotine to their system and they are highly unlikely to overdose themselves on NRT.
