Control the amount of nicotine you use and when you use it
Whether you’re reducing one cigarette at a time or quitting for good, choose NICORETTE® Gum to help control your nicotine intake.
By giving you control over how much nicotine you use, you can effectively deal with your withdrawal symptoms as they happen. Each piece of gum delivers a controlled amount of nicotine into your body – enough to satisfy the craving, but not as much as a real cigarette.
When used correctly, NICORETTE® Gum can significantly help your chances of stopping smoking successfully versus willpower alone.
NICORETTE® Gum acts fast to help you deal with cravings.
The nicotine is absorbed quickly through your mouth and gums, relieving those unpleasant withdrawal symptoms soon after they strike. So if you’re armed and ready with NICORETTE® Gum, you’re much less likely to get caught out by a craving.
You can also make sure that you’ll get enough nicotine to satisfy the craving - just choose from the 2mg, 4mg or the new extra strength 6mg gum, depending on how much you smoke.
A fresh-tasting way to stop smoking!
Choose your flavour. As well as Original, NICORETTE® Gum is available in Freshmint, FruitFusion and Icy White flavours – all three are double coated for an enhanced flavour experience.
So if you want to say goodbye to the bitter taste of cigarette smoke, NICORETTE® Gum could be a good choice for you.
Chew the gum slowly until the taste becomes strong (less than a minute)
Rest the gum between your gums and cheek – the nicotine is then released into your body via the mouth lining
Start chewing the gum again when the taste has faded. Repeat until nicotine craving disappears.
This will depend on how many cigarettes you smoke daily. As a rough guide, most people start by using between 8-12 and up to 15 pieces of nicotine gum each day.
If you start with the Extra Strength 6mg Gum, the best time to switch to the medium strength 4mg Gum or low strength 2mg Gum is during the reduction stage.
20 cigarettes or fewer: One 2 mg gum as required to relieve cravings.
More than 20 cigarettes: One 6mg gum or 4mg gum as required to relieve cravings.
- Use only one piece of gum at a time.
- Do not use more than 15 gums per day.
- The frequency with which you use the gums will depend on how many cigarettes you smoked and how strong they were
