There are five main products that we stock which can help you;
- Chewing Gum
Nicorette Quickmist Mouthspray starts to act in just 60 seconds to give you fast relief from your cigarette cravings. The nicotine is absorbed quickly into your body through the mouth lining, helping to rapidly relieve the urge to smoke.
Watch the video above on how to use the mouth spray correctly.
Nicorette 15mg Inhalator works by replacing the nicotine you would normally get from cigarettes, it enables you to reduce or quit in a way that mimics the act of smoking.
Watch this video above from Nicorette showing the product.
Nicorette Cools Lozenges use dual layer technology. As the lozenge dissolves, it delivers therapeutic nicotine to help relieve your cravings and other withdrawal symptoms. The icy mint flavour is also gradually released to provide you with a long-lasting cooling taste.
Watch the video above advertising the lozenges.
Nicorette Invisipatch provides a steady flow of nicotine to the body for up to 16 hours, making it much easier to work into a regular once-a-day routine, keeping nicotine cravings at bay during the day when you need it most.
Watch this video above from Nicorette showing the product.
Nicorette Chewing Gum means the nicotine is absorbed quickly through your mouth and gums, relieving those unpleasant withdrawal symptoms soon after they strike.
Each piece of gum delivers a controlled amount of nicotine into your body – enough to satisfy the craving, but not as much as a real cigarette.Watch this video above that shows how best to use the gum.
