Why Nicotine Gum?

Habitrol Gum is intended to aid smoking cessation by reducing nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream through the lining of the mouth when the gum is chewed. The recommended minimum length of treatment is three months. You can follow the recommended 12-week dosage program, or you can use the gum as needed. Chewing a piece of Habitrol Gum at the onset of nicotine cravings should alleviate nicotine cravings and/or withdrawal symptoms. Most people find they can cease using the gum after six months, but some heavy smokers choose to continue using the gum in order to prevent relapse.

Here are just some of the effects smoking can have on your health.  You may know the effects on your health and have heard it all before.   Smoking can cause: Heart attack; Bronchitis; Gangrene; Miscarriage and Premature Birth; Stroke; Pleurisy; Cancer; Sterility; Emphysema; Gum Disease; Impotence; Stillbirth; SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Can I go cold turkey?

You are the person best placed to answer that question. Giving up isn't only dependent on your will power, it can depend on a number of factors including how many you smoke a day, how long you have smoked and how determined you are to quit. Nicotine gum can be used to curb cravings for nicotine.  Personally I found it hard to quit. Going cold turkey was not an effective option as my body was still craving nicotine. By cutting down the gum, and the dosage size, and mixing it with normal gum I was eventually able to curb my cravings completely.

When you are quitting remember to:

  • Stay positive - think positively and think of yourself as a non-smoker, not a deprived ex-smoker
  • Avoid triggers and remove any temptation
  • Keep yourself busy - substitute something for a cigarette (like a cup of tea or a drink of water)
  • Remember you don't need to smoke to relax
  • Diet and exercise - eat sensibly and stick to your normal diet
  • Reward yourself with the money you are saving
  • Don't panic and remember, you're not alone

What if I slip and have a cigarette?

It is not the end of the world if you relapse.  Many people do not quit smoking on the first attempt, but the key is not to be disheartened by your relapse. Rather, learn from it and try again. The best way to deal with a relapse is not to fall back into old habits, to try again, removing all temptation, and using nicotine gum to curb further cravings. If you do relapse it is also a good idea to look back, and see what it was that made you want to smoke again. By identifying this trigger you will be able to avoid it next time. Smoking is addictive, but you can break the habit.

What if I get addicted to the gum?

You can slowly cut down your dosage and blend normal chewing gum with nicotine gum, until eventually you are just chewing normal chewing gum.

What is the nicotine time gum dosage?

Users should stop smoking completely during treatment with Habitrol Gum. You take one piece of Habitrol Gum when you feel the urge to smoke.
Normally, 8-12 pieces per day, up to a maximum of 25 pieces per day for the 2mg gum and 15 pieces for the 4 mg gum.

How do I use it?

One piece of gum should be chewed until the taste becomes strong. Then the chewing gum should be rested between the gum and cheek. When the taste fades, chewing should commence again. The chewing routine should be repeated for 30 minutes. After three months, the user should gradually cut down the number of pieces chewed each day until they have stopped using the product. The characteristics of chewing gum as a pharmaceutical form are such that individually different nicotine levels can result in the blood. Therefore, dosage frequency should be adjusted according to individual requirements within the stated maximum limit.

Adverse effects:

In principle, HABITROL gum can cause adverse reactions similar to those associated with nicotine administered by smoking. Nicotine from gum may sometimes cause a slight irritation of the throat and increase salivation at the start of treatment. Excessive swallowing of dissolved nicotine may, at first, cause hiccups. Those with a tendency to indigestion may suffer initially from minor indigestion or heartburn. Slower chewing will usually overcome this problem. Excessive consumption of gum by subjects who have not been in the habit of inhaling tobacco smoke could possibly lead to nausea, faintness or headaches.

Why should I quit?

Well there are a number of healthy benefits to quitting, but you are really the only one who can take the first step. The best way to decide why to quit is to figure out what you think about smoking.  Think about the following statements.
