How does Nicorette work to relieve cravings?
Nicorette helps provide effective relief for cravings associated with quitting smoking by delivering a controlled amount of nicotine to your system. This therapeutic nicotine is delivered slowly, in small amounts, to help soothe your nicotine cravings. As you use the Nicorette program as directed, your body gradually adjusts to getting less nicotine over time, until you no longer need any at all. By helping to relieve nicotine cravings, Nicorette lets you focus on your quit journey by managing the triggers that link cigarettes to so many of your daily activities.
To increase your success in quitting:
1. You must be motivated to quit. 2. Use enough - chew at least 9 pieces of Nicorette gum per day during the first six weeks. 3. Use long enough - use Nicorette gum for the full 12 weeks. 4. Use with a support program.
NRTs are over-the-counter (OTC) products that can help reduce your cravings and withdrawal symptoms while you adjust to life as a nonsmoker. They work by delivering lower levels of therapeutic nicotine without the 7,000 chemicals found in tobacco smoke.
