Reduces withdrawal symptoms, including nicotine craving, associated with quitting smoking


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 less than 25 or more cigarettes a day; use 2mg nicotine gum
If you smoke more 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.

photoCut back in quantity BEFORE your quit. Remember that most suffered greatly in their quit beginnings. Spend time in habitats not associated with smoking. Most importantly, keep a positive mentality.
