Stop Smoking with Nicorette Gum

smoking-6Do people still need to be told why they should stop smoking? Do people not know by now what the consequences of smoking are? Here are but two:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

This is where the air tubes or air sacs in the lungs are scarred and slowly begin to stop working. This means it becomes harder and harder to breathe. The number one cause of COPD is smoking, and it’s one of the leading causes of death around the world.

• Lung cancer

Another consequence of smoking is lung cancer, another leading cause of death worldwide.

But cigarette smoking is an addiction, and people who’ve tried to quit know that trying to quit is hard. The list of withdrawal symptoms alone is daunting. The person endures cravings, anxiety, irritability and restlessness, as well as depression, cravings for food and an inability to concentrate. How easy is it to go around the corner, buy a pack and forget all that?

Other benefits are being able to breathe better, more energy, being able to taste and smell better and the delay of lines and wrinkles in the skin. Nicorette can help a smoker quit.

People have been using Nicorette gum for years to help them quit smoking. Nicorette gum comes in 2 mg and 4 mg doses. The gum contains nicotine, but in smaller amounts than a cigarette does. The nicotine in Nicorette gum is absorbed right in the user’s mouth, so it gets to the bloodstream quickly and stops the need to smoke. When I visited their website lately, I saw that they now offer QuickMist mouth spray, which also contains nicotine and quells cravings for cigarettes in 60 seconds. Like Nicorette gum, the mister is portable and can be tucked easily into a handbag. This new mouth spray, the first of its kind, joins Nicorette products like the gum, the patch, the lozenge and the nasal spray.
