    What is Nicotine Replacement Therapy?

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) works by giving you a controlled dose of therapeutic nicotine, to help relieve withdrawal symptoms, without all the harmful ingredients in cigarette smoke.

    Find out what’s in a cigarette

    When you stop smoking, you quickly remove the nicotine in your body. This means you may suffer tough withdrawal symptoms, such as bad moods and difficulty concentrating. NRT works by releasing therapeutic nicotine into your bloodstream at much lower levels than in a cigarette, without the tar, carbon monoxide and other harmful chemicals present in tobacco smoke. This helps you to relieve those difficult cravings.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy products, such as Gum and Patch, are licensed and regulated medicinal products to help you quit smoking. NICORETTE® products are here to support you in your quit smoking journey, and to help you finally quit for good. By providing a controlled dose of nicotine, cravings can be managed, leading to a greater chance of quitting successfully vs willpower alone. In fact, evidence suggests that smokers are almost three times more likely to quit smoking by using a combination of 2 NRT products, than going it alone!

    We know that quitting smoking is tough. But we also know it’s one of the most incredible things you can do.

    Week one abstinence is an important predictor of long-term success; if you can make it through your first week, you are nine times more likely to quit smoking for good. With NICORETTE® you can improve your chances of success and make quitting smoking easier vs willpower alone.
