Directions

If you are under 18 years of age, ask a doctor before use
• before using this product, read the enclosed User’s Guide for complete directions and other important information
• stop smoking completely when you begin using the gum
If you smoke 25 or more cigarettes a day; use 4mg nicotine gum
If you smoke less than 25 cigarettes a day; use according to the following 12 week schedule:

Weeks 1 to 6 – 1 piece every 1 to 2 hours
Weeks 7 to 9 – 1 piece every 2 to 4 hours
Weeks 10 to 12 - 1 piece every 4 to 8 hours

• nicotine gum is a medicine and must be used a certain way to get the best results.
• chew the gum slowly until it tingles. Then park it between your cheek and gum. When the tingle is gone, begin chewing again, until the tingle returns.
• repeat this process until most of the tingle is gone (about 30 minutes)
• do not eat or drink for 15 minutes before chewing the nicotine gum, or while chewing a piece
• to improve your chances of quitting, use at least 9 pieces per day for the first 6 weeks
• if you experience strong or frequent cravings, you may use a second piece within the hour. However, do not continuously use one piece after another since this may cause you hiccups, heartburn, nausea or other side effects.
• do not use more than 24 pieces per day
• stop using the nicotine gum at the end of 12 weeks. If you still feel the need to use nicotine gum, talk to your doctor.
