How does it work?
As you chew, Nicotinell® Gum releases a fast, therapeutic dose of nicotine that is absorbed into your bloodstream for up to 30 minutes. The chewing action also works to distract you from your craving, giving your mouth something else to do (other than smoking).
Which gum suits me?
Nicotinell® Gum comes in two different strengths, depending on how much you smoke:
Nicotinell® Gum 2 mg (Regular Strength)
Suitable for smokers who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day.
Nicotinell® Gum 4 mg (Extra Strength)
Suitable for smokers who smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day or have previously failed to stop with 2 mg gum.
How do I use the gum?
Place one gum in your mouth and chew slowly until the taste becomes strong.
‘Park’ the gum between your gum and cheek to absorb the nicotine.
When the taste has faded chew again, repeat the process for around 30 minutes.
Most people use 8-12 pieces of the 2 mg gum or 4-6 pieces of the 4 mg gum in a day. Do not use more than 20 pieces of the 2 mg gum or 10 pieces of the 4 mg gum in a day. Cut down usage after 3 months to 1-2 pieces per day, stopping at around 6 months (or earlier if you’re ready).
