Nicotine Replacement Therapy
Nicotine Replacement Therapy
Every year several million people try to
quit smoking, but it’s not an easy task to give up an addition nurtured for so
many years! If you are trying to give up smoking then it’s important that you
have all the support that you need. Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is
something that most smokers are recommended as the first step to get out of the
habit. Although NRT helps to reduce the withdrawal effects of stopping smoking
some amount of willpower is necessary too.
provides you alternatives for replacing the nicotine that you get from
cigarettes which can help you to overcome your nicotine cravings, and can
increase your chances of staying away from cigarettes for good. Most people
usually take NRT for eight to twelve weeks but this also depends on how much you
smoke and what type of NRT you decide to take.
NRT is safe for most people who are trying to stop smoking. But if you’re
pregnant or under 17, speak to your doctor to find out the method that would be
the best for you. NRT is now available in India in most pharmacies or medicine
shops in different forms and variety, including lozenges, gums, micro-tabs,
inhalators, patches, oral and nasal sprays.
It could be worth trying a few before choosing the one that suits you best. You
might find that you get more side-effects from one form compared with another or
maybe you’ll prefer to have a steady supply of nicotine to stave off cravings as
you get with patches; or you may want quick hits of nicotine only when you crave
it as you get with a nasal spray.
like candies that you can suck every time your nicotine craving kicks in.
Nicotine is released as it dissolves and gets absorbed through the lining of
It comes in
two different variants, 2mg and 4mg, and a number of different flavors. The
stronger 4mg strength may be more effective if you're highly dependent on
nicotine. You will have to chew the gum slowly till you have a strong taste, and
then rest it between your cheek and gums so that the released nicotine can be
absorbed. You’ll need to repeat this once the taste starts to fade, and you can
carry on doing this for up to half an hour whenever you feel the urge to have a

They are like
fake cigarettes which contain nicotine but produce no smoke. When you suck hard
on the mouthpiece you breathe in the nicotine stored in the cartridge. You can
use your inhalator when you feel as if you want to smoke. Inhalators also act as
a physical substitute for cigarettes.
patches release the nicotine slowly into your body through your skin. Patches
usually come in three different strengths and last for 16 or 24 hours so that
you get a steady supply of nicotine throughout the day. They are usually put on
Oral and Nasal sprays
usually satisfy nicotine cravings very quickly as the spray squirts nicotine
straight into your nostrils or mouth. Although they act fast, nasal sprays can
be difficult to get used to and they may irritate your nose. That’s the reason
why oral sprays are more popular than nasal sprays.
Regardless of method of NRT you may choose, there is a
chance of you getting some side-effects such as headaches, taste problems, sleep
disturbance, upset stomach, a dry mouth or feeling generally unwell. Some of the
side effects could be due to the withdrawal symptoms and not by NRT.
These NRT methods can also have specific types of symptoms
for instance skin rashes where you apply patches. Nonetheless, no matter how
much troublesome they are, it is better that we remember that the long-term
health risk of smoking is far worse than any side-effect.
Also make sure that you read all the information provided in
the usage guide of the medicine or product that you might use. And always ask
your doctors for any doubts or queries.
Electronic cigarettes/e-cigarettes are a battery-operated version of a normal
cigarette and contain not only nicotine but other chemicals and flavorings. They
work by vaporizing the nicotine and other chemicals so you can inhale them in
the same way as you would from a normal cigarette.
Although many people have tried swapping to electronic cigarettes as a form of
NRT, there is very little evidence on how safe or effective they are. In many
countries they have been banned from sale until scientific evidence can show
whether or not they are safe. This is partly because they contain products that
are known to be toxic for humans.
