Nicorette Freshmint Gum 4mg is suitable for those smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day. It is ideal for the relief of nicotine withdrawal symptoms as an aid to giving up smoking. Nicorette Gum can be used to help smokers ready to stop smoking immediately and also to help smokers who need to cut down their cigarette use before stopping.

Nicorette gum is available in 4 flavours, Freshmint, Mint, Original and Freshfruit Gum.
The Truth About Quitting - Why stop smoking?
We are all aware of the health risks of smoking. Many smokers give up not only because of the health risks to themselves, but also to those around them, while others choose to give up in order to save money or to stop smoking from interrupting their daily routines. And some just want to feel better and for their clothes to smell better. Whatever your reason for quitting, with Nicorette you are twice as likely to succeed compared to willpower alone.
Concerned about gaining weight whilst quitting?
Weight Control is one area that many people worry about when they quit smoking. Nicorette Gum has been clinically proven to help you control your weight in this tough period.
How does Nicorette Gum help you control the weight gain commonly experienced while quitting?
Because smoking cigarettes can increase your metabolism, when you quit your metabolism may slow down. This could result in weight gain. As Nicorette Gum contains nicotine, it can help you control the drop in metabolic rate experienced with sudden nicotine withdrawal. The nicotine in Nicorette Gum also acts as an appetite suppressant, helping you reduce calorie consumption while you concentrate on beating cigarettes. So with Nicorette Gum you can be in control.
How to use Nicorette Freshmint Gum 4mg:
When you chew Nicorette Gum it releases controlled amounts of nicotine into your body to help you deal with cravings and withdrawal symptoms. When you use Nicorette Gum correctly you can double your chances of stopping smoking successfully vs willpower alone.
How do I use the Gum?
To make sure you get the most from Nicorette Gum you should use the correct chewing technique:
1. Chew the gum slowly until the taste becomes strong.
2. When this happens, rest the gum between your cheek and teeth.
3. Chewing the gum releases the nicotine, which is then absorbed through the lining of the mouth.
4. When the taste has faded chew the gum again.
How many pieces do I need?
Most people start by using between 8-12 and up to 15 pieces of gum each day. You should use the gum for at least three months and then gradually reduce the number of pieces you chew. If you start with the Full Strength 4mg Gum, you can switch to the Low Strength 2mg Gum during the reduction stage.
