Gum allows you to control how much nicotine you use and when you use it.
It is available in different strengths, Full Strength 4mg Gum and Low Strength 2mg Gum, so it is important to choose the correct strength to suit your individual smoking pattern.
How does it work ?
When you chew </span>NicoretteВ®
Gum it releases controlled amounts of nicotine into your body – about a third of the nicotine in a cigarette – to help you deal with cravings and withdrawal symptoms. When you use
Gum correctly you can double your chances of quitting successfully.
How do I use the Gum ?
Gum is not an ordinary chewing gum so you should not chew it in an ordinary way. To make sure you get the most from
Gum you should use the correct chewing technique. First chew the gum slowly until the taste becomes strong. When this happens, rest the gum between your cheek and teeth. Chewing the gum releases the nicotine which is then absorbed through the lining of the mouth. When the taste has faded chew the gum again.
How many pieces do I need ?
Most people start by using 10-15 pieces of gum each day. You should use the gum for at least 3 months and then gradually reduce the number of pieces you chew. If you start with the Full Strength 4mg Gum, you can switch to the Low Strength 2mg Gum during the reduction stage.
