New Nicorette Inhalator! The new Nicorette Inhalator replaces the old Nicorette Inhaler. The new Nicorette Inhalator contains 15mg of nicotine so the cartridges last twice as long (about 40 minutes) versus the old 10mg cartridge!
The Nicorette Inhalator is a type of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). It helps the smoker quit by relieving the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and by alleviating their desire to smoke. The Nicorette Inhalator can also assist smokers who need to stop smoking temporarily, such as on a long-haul flight. The Nicorette Inhalator can provide relief for smokers who cannot, or will not, quit smoking to smoke less by providing periods when they can abstain from smoking. The Nicorette Inhalator enables the smoker to satisfy their physiological craving for nicotine and reaches its full effectiveness after approximately 30 minutes. It allows the user to recreate the action of smoking and gives them something to do with their hands. This may not seem important but some smokers who try to quit really miss the physical habit of lifting a cigarette to and from the mouth.
While the Nicorette Inhalator may look like a plastic cigarette, it is quite different. The inhalator only delivers nicotine to the mouth and not the lungs. The nicotine that does enter the system through this method is absorbed much more slowly than it is by smoking cigarettes. In this way it provides enough nicotine to the body to overcome the unpleasantness of nicotine withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are often exhibited as irritability and anxiety, mood swings, mild depression, trouble sleeping or concentrating. These are part of the reason why many smokers find it so difficult to quit.
The inhalator is a great choice for those who are not enamoured of the thought of chewing NRT gum but who also want something more flexible than NRT patches. The Nicorette Inhalator can be used whenever a nicotine craving hits and, when combined with a strong desire to quit smoking, increases the chances of giving up smoking completely.
The Nicorette Inhalator contains either 4 or 20 cartridges.
Use the Nicorette Inhalator whenever you have the urge to smoke, up to the recommended daily maximum of 12 cartridges.
