• The Truth about Quitting

    We are all aware of the health risks of smoking. Many smokers give up not only because of the health risks to themselves, but also to those around them, while others choose to give up in order to save money or to stop smoking from interrupting their daily routines. And some just want to feel better and for their clothes to smell better.

    For some smokers, it can be difficult to quit altogether, and if you are not quite ready to stop smoking completely, cutting down can be a significant step towards quitting for good, and is recognised as a way to reduce the harm of smoking.

    As well as the option of cutting down, you have the option to replace some of your cigarettes with a nicotine replacement product, like NICORETTE® Inhalator. In this way, if using a NICORETTE® product prevents you from turning to cigarettes, then you can continue to use these products for as long as needed.

    Whatever your reason for quitting is, with NICORETTE® you are twice as likely to succeed compared to willpower alone. Here is a summary of the many benefits a smoke-free lifestyle will bring you:
