Who is this for?
What is Nicorette Gum?
Nicorette Gum is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) used to help smokers quit smoking by reducing their cravings. This gum may also be used for people who wish to simply cut down on the number of cigarettes they smoke, or it can be used for when you are in places where you cannot smoke, i.e. indoors or around children.
How does it work?
The Nicorette Gum provides the body with the nicotine it is craving. When you are trying to quit smoking, your body is still addicted to the nicotine that you have been absorbing from the cigarettes. This gum releases nicotine into the mouth so that it can be easily absorbed and work to relieve your uncomfortable craving symptoms.
