How I Quit Smoking? Reduced my smoking from 40 cigarettes a day to 10, NICORETTE® Icy White Gum and My Quit plan

Chew a piece of gum whenever you feel the urge to smoke, up to a maximum of 15 pieces a day. Over time, you should need to use fewer and fewer gums to control your nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. We recommend gradually reducing the number of pieces of gum that you chew each day.
