Quitting Smoking

Aids to Quitting (Nicotine)

Nicotine Patches

Patches work by releasing a steady dose of nicotine through your skin, are easy to use and are available with a 16 or 24-hour dose delivery.

Nicotine Gum

The chewing gum is available in different strengths – whichever you use, you must chew the gum regularly throughout the day, remembering to rest it between your gum and cheek to ensure maximum absorption.

Inhalator

This is a plastic holder with nicotine cartridges. You draw on it so the nicotine vapour passes into your blood stream through the lining of your mouth. This product can help quitters who really miss the hand-to-mouth action of smoking.

Microtab

Microtabs are small tablets that are placed under your tongue. As the tablet dissolves, nicotine is absorbed through the lining of your mouth. It should not be chewed, sucked or swallowed as this prevents it from working properly.

Lozenge

The lozenge can be sucked slowly and then left to rest between the gum and the cheek where the nicotine will be absorbed.

Nasal Spray

The spray is suitable for those with a heavy nicotine addiction. Nicotine is rapidly absorbed through the blood vessels in the nose to relieve craving quickly
