Habitrol chewing gum and patches help reduce your cravings for nicotine and withdrawal symptoms. Habitrol releases a controlled amount of nicotine into your system, approximately one third less nicotine than a cigarette and without the awful chemicals and harmful physical effects. Controlled nicotine intake increases your chances of being able to quit smoking compared to going cold turkey. Habitrol gum and patches contain approximately one third less nicotine than a cigarette, and allows you to avoid the harmful physical and chemical effects associated with smoking. The recommended minimum length of treatment is three months. You can follow the recommended 12-week dosage program, or you can use the gum as needed. Consuming Habitrol at the onset of nicotine cravings should alleviate nicotine cravings and/or withdrawal symptoms. Most people find they can cease using the gum after six months, but some heavy smokers choose to continue using the gum in order to prevent relapse.
Read the instruction leaflet included which offers a regimented programme. In general, place a piece of Habitrol gum in the mouth. Chew the gum slowly several times and stop chewing when you notice a tingling sensation or a peppery taste in the mouth. "Park" the gum between your cheek and gum and leave it there until the taste or tingling sensation is almost gone. Then slowly chew a few more times until the taste or sensation returns. Park the gum again in a different place in your mouth. Chewing too much or too quickly can cause too much nicotine to be released from the gum and you may have side effects such as nausea, hiccups, or stomach problems. Remove the gum after 30 minutes, or when the taste or tingle no longer return when you chew the gum. Chew one piece of gum when you get the urge to smoke. Do not exceed 20 pieces of gum per day.
