Nicorette Gum

Nicorette Gum is a very popular and effective form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). It helps the smoker overcome their dependence on nicotine over time by providing another source of nicotine, one that is less hazardous to their health than smoking. It is certainly less harmful absorbing the nicotine in this way than it is smoking tobacco and inhaling the nicotine along with the other more than 4000 chemicals contained in cigarettes at the same time.

Suddenly denying your system of all nicotine can be an unpleasant experience. Common symptoms of the body's dependence on nicotine during withdrawal are demonstrated by mood swings, mild depression, trouble sleeping or concentrating, irritability and anxiety. If you know someone who has tried to give up smoking 'cold turkey' you will probably be familiar with such symptoms. They are part of the body's physiological response to the removal of the nicotine intake that the smoker's system has come to rely on. Other physical symptoms may include headaches, sweating or intestinal discomfort. Nicorette Gum reduces the unpleasant effects of nicotine withdrawal felt by smokers once they stop smoking. It helps satisfy the smoker's physical craving for nicotine and offers quick relief.

Nicorette Gum is an excellent choice for those who want to stop smoking but find it hard to quit. The pieces of gum provide flexible, convenient, and quick relief from the nicotine cravings that make quitting smoking so difficult. Nicorette Gum is available in packs of 30 or 105 pieces of gum. With a choice of strength of either regular 2mg or extra strength 4mg, Nicorette Gum caters for the needs of the individual by providing an adjustable solution to the problem of nicotine withdrawal. Nicorette Gum also comes in a choice of either Classic, Fresh Fruit or Icy Mint flavours. By following the simple outline of gum usage and adhering to the chew and 'park' technique prescribed, you will enjoy a much better chance of stopping smoking than if you tried to quit by willpower alone. You can have no better ally than Nicorette Gum in the fight against the nicotine addiction fostered by your smoking habit.


Nicorette Gum 2mg is recommended for those who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day. The 4mg extra strength gum is recommended for those who smoke more that 20 cigarettes a day.
