Nicorette Gum is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).
NRT products can be used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get when you try to stop smoking, or when you are cutting down the number of cigarettes you smoke while trying to stop smoking.
To help cut down or quit smoking you should also try to use a behavioural support programme to increase your chances of success.
If you smoke 20 or fewer cigarettes a day, the 2 mg nicotine gum can help relieve your cravings.
If you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, 4 mg nicotine gum may be more appropriate.
Helpful tips on giving up
You may have tried to stop smoking before and you know from bitter experience that it’s not easy to give up cigarettes.
However, you have now taken the first constructive step towards becoming a non-smoker.
In overcoming your tobacco dependence you will have to tackle two problems:
- Your smoking habit.
- Your addiction to nicotine.
The number of Nicorette Gums you use each day will depend on how many cigarettes you smoked and how strong they are. The 2 mg gums should be used by people who smoke 20 or fewer cigarettes each day or by heavier smokers when they are cutting down the number and strength of the Nicorette gums they are using.
The 4 mg gums should be used by people who smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day.

How to chew Nicorette Gum – the Nicorette Chewing Technique
The method of chewing Nicorette Gum is not the same as for ordinary chewing gum. Nicorette Gum is chewed to release nicotine then rested so that nicotine can be taken in through the lining of the mouth. If Nicorette Gum is chewed continuously, the nicotine is released too quickly and is swallowed. This may irritate your throat, upset your stomach or give you hiccups.
If you have false teeth you may have difficulty chewing the gum as Nicorette Gum could stick to them and on rare occasions, damage dentures. If you experience a problem, other types of nicotine replacement therapy such as a skin patch, inhalator or microtab may be more suitable for you.
The Nicorette Chewing Technique
- Chew slowly until taste becomes strong.
- Rest between gum and cheek.
- Chew again when the taste has faded.
- Keep chewing like this for about half an hour.
After this time the gum will have lost its strength and you should dispose of it carefully.
