What is Nicorette Quickmist?
Nicorette Quickmist is a quick and simple mouth spray that can help you to quit smoking. It helps to reduce your nicotine cravings, reducing the urge to smoke and helping you to cut down or quit smoking entirely. Nicorette QuickMist is available in Fresh Mint and Cool Berry flavours.
Who is Nicorette Quickmist suitable for?
It can only be sold and used by adults and children aged 12 and over who are looking to quit smoking. It is suitable for both light and heavy smokers, as the dosage can be adjusted to suit your needs. If you’re looking for a way to help yourself quit smoking that can be used in smoke-free areas, Nicorette Quickmist could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Why is it so difficult to quit smoking?
Quitting smoking sounds simple, but anyone who’s tried to quit will tell you that it’s much more difficult than it sounds. This is because your body becomes dependent on the nicotine in cigarettes and when you try to quit your body goes through withdrawal symptoms. This makes you crave cigarettes, making you feel like quitting is impossible. However, some options can help to make quitting smoking easier, increasing your chances of quitting for good.
How does this spray use NRT to ease my nicotine cravings?
Nicorette QuickMist uses a method called Nicotine Replacement Therapy or NRT to help you to quit smoking. It contains 1mg of nicotine in every spray, giving your body the nicotine, it craves without having to smoke. In this way, it replaces your cigarettes or cigars, helping you to manage your cravings and withdrawal symptoms as you quit without the harmful effects of smoking.
Can this Nicorette Spray be used by someone pregnant or breastfeeding?

Some medications may not be safe for you and your baby while you are pregnant or breastfeeding and a medical professional can help you to make the best choices when it comes to medication. NRT treatments such as this product can be used during pregnancy, however, it is much safer for you and your baby if you quit without using NRT, as the nicotine in this product can pass to your baby.
