What is NICORETTE® Gum?
NICORETTE® Gum allows you to actively control how much nicotine you use and when you use it. It is available in two different strengths:
Full Strength 4mg Gum: Suitable for those who smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day.
Low Strength 2mg Gum: Suitable for those who smoke 20 cigarettes a day or less.
It’s important to choose the correct strength to suit your individual smoking pattern.
NICORETTE® Gum flavours
NICORETTE® Gum is available in sugar-free Mint flavour.
How does it work?
When you chew NICORETTE® Gum it releases controlled amounts of nicotine into your body to help you deal with cravings and withdrawal symptoms. When you use NICORETTE® Gum correctly you can double your chances of stopping smoking successfully vs willpower alone.
How do I use the Gum?
To make sure you get the most from NICORETTE® Gum you should use the correct chewing technique:
- 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 between 8-12 and up to 15 pieces of gum each day. You should use the gum for at least three 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.
