Quit smoking with Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) for extra support

Coffee, meals, alcohol, stress and even your commute are common craving triggers that can be tough to battle, especially when you first quit. That’s where nicotine replacement therapy (or NRT) is shown to be effective. Nicotine replacement products like Nicorette gum and the NicoDerm CQ patch gradually deliver nicotine to your body to help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms so they don’t get in the way of your determination to quit smoking. The amount of nicotine is just enough to help calm cravings, which is one of the reasons that most nicotine replacements are sold over-the-counter, without a doctor’s prescription. Over time, you decrease the dosage of nicotine until you’re nicotine-free. How do you know what form of NRT is right for you?
