Nicorette Gum is a very popular and effective form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). It helps the smoker overcome their dependence on nicotine over time by providing another source of nicotine, one that is less hazardous to their health than smoking. It is certainly less harmful absorbing the nicotine in this way than it is smoking tobacco and inhaling the nicotine along with the other more than 4000 chemicals contained in cigarettes at the same time.
The amount of Nicorette Gum that you use depends on how severe your smoking habit is. As a general rule, it is recommended that you do not use more than 24 pieces of gum daily. For some people taking a piece of Nicorette Gum when the urge to smoke emerges is the best method and usually results in around 12 pieces of gum being adequate for daily use. For others it is best to have a regular schedule of use to help prevent nicotine cravings in advance. Think of it as being like dehydration. By the time you feel thirsty your body is often already dehydrated. By using Nicorette Gum only in response to the urge to smoke some people fail to keep the level of nicotine in their bloodstream high enough to stave off the withdrawal symptoms.
The recommended minimum length of treatment is three months. This 3 month period will give you a chance to overcome your dependence on cigarettes and gives you the important assistance you need over this crucial period when quitting is most difficult.
