NiQuitin Fresh Mint Gum is used to help people stop smoking. It works by replacing some of the nicotine you get from cigarettes. This type of treatment is called Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).
The nicotine in cigarettes makes them addictive, but other substances in cigarette smoke, such as tar, carbon dioxide and other toxins, are more harmful to your health. NRT products like NiQuitin Fresh Mint Gum do not have the health dangers of tobacco.
The nicotine from NRT reduces your cravings for cigarettes and helps you resist the urge to smoke. It also relieves some of the unpleasant symptoms (like feeling ill or irritable) that smokers have when they try to give up.
NiQuitin Fresh Mint Gum can be used to help you stop smoking straightaway (a quit attempt).cut down on smoking, perhaps before you go on to stop completely (reducing to quit or just reducing).
In addition, NiQuitin Fresh Mint Gum may be used when you do not wish to smoke or are unable to smoke, for example in confined spaces (in the car; in the house), where others (such as children) could be harmed by tobacco smoke or in places where smoking is prohibited (temporary abstinence).develop cravings once you have stopped smoking.
Reducing the number of cigarettes smoked can increase the chances that you will go on to quit completely. NiQuitin Freshmint Gum can be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding (see Pregnancy and Breast-feeding below). Some people worry that, when they have stopped smoking, they may become dependent on NRT instead. This is very rare, and if it were to happen it is still safer than continuing to smoke. It is also an easier habit to break.
It is always better to stop smoking completely. Smoking is harmful and has no health benefits. NRT products like NiQuitin Freshmint Gum can help you stop. Any risks or possible side-effects of nicotine from NRT are much less than the proven dangers of continuing to smoke.
