Does nicorette cause cancer?
Nicorette is a nicotine replacement remedy. But has it been shown that it can potentially be carcinogenic? I can't find any info on the packaging. Asked by Mario Dockerty 1 year ago.

Nicorette is a branded over-the-counter palliative treatment which is used to ameliorate the withdrawal effects involved in quitting smoking. Originally available as a patch for topical application, it was later made available as a nicotine gum (composed of nicotine polacrilex) lozenge, inhaler, and nasal spray. All these products contain nicotine as the active ingredient and work by delivering this into the bloodstream. These treatments are commonly referred to as nicotine replacement therapies. Alternative brand names include Prostep®, Habitrol®, Nicotrol®, Nicoderm, and Commit®. SIDE EFFECTS: Because this gum contains nicotine, it has a peppery-like taste. It may cause a tingling sensation when chewed. During the first few days of using this medication, you may experience mouth sores, jaw muscle aches, increased saliva production, indigestion, or headache. These effects should disappear as use of the gum is continued. Chewing the gum too fast can cause lightheadedness, dizziness, hiccups, nausea, vomiting or insomnia. If these effects occur, chew the gum more slowly. Notify your doctor if you develop symptoms of too much nicotine in your body: cold sweats, fainting, confusion, pounding heart. In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist. SO USE OF NICORATTE DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER- But at the same time it should not be abused. - Answered by Verda Lentini 1 year ago.

Brand of nicorette patches?
what is the best brand of nicorette patches? Or, what are the brands you used that you find useful? Thanks Asked by Stefan Hartert 1 year ago.

Nicorette is the brand name of the nicotine gum. Nicoderm CQ is one brand of nicotine patch I've used. Some drugstores and Walmart have their own brand and I've used those too. They worked about the same for me, so if you want to use the generic they'd be alright. Make sure to get the dose for the amount of cigarettes you smoke. I think one is if you smoke more than a pack a day and the other is for less. 2 mg. and 4 mg. Good Luck. Answered by Arnette Heskett 1 year ago.

Nicorette raise blood pressure?
does nicorette raise blood pressure? Asked by Larhonda Bidgood 1 year ago.

Yes, it can. Nicorette has nicotine, and nicotine constricts vessels. The vascular system compensates for constricted vessels by increasing blood pressure. For most people, even though this is true, the degree to which their blood pressure will rise is dose dependent. It should be possible to use lower dosesof Nicorette to wean the patient from smoking without causing an obvious or a significant rise in pressure. Once the patient quits smoking, they should have their blood pressure reevaluated, and treated if needed. Best wishes. Answered by Solomon Gillespi 1 year ago.


Nicorette and weight loss?
i have a friend who is 17 and smokes occasionally. she chews nicorette and thinks that will help her lose weight. is she right? i know she should stop and im working on it, but i want to make sure i know the facts Asked by Karole Xu 1 year ago.

No way!!!! Nicorette does not help you lose weight. For someone who smokes and is trying to quit, nicorette is a useful tool for helping them quit. Many smokers have an oral fixation, which means they need to have something in their mouth, and when they are trying to quit, they eat to help them feel better! Nicorette helps smokers quit smoking by putting something in their mouth AND giving them a SMALL dose of nicotine to help calm cravings. It may help them not gain weight, only because they aren't eating instead of smoking! Tell your friend to STOP chewing it and putting unneeded nicotine into her body!

Im a bit overweight so... Question : 1. Could this indicate some underlying heart problem or something else? Or is it normal for such reactions to nicorette ? 2. Does nicorete help in letting smoking go and wont it in return cause addiction to the gum itself ? Answered by Leandra Mraw 1 year ago.

1. In theory there could be a heart problem, but it was probably just your reaction to the different form of the nicotine. I used to chew nicorette to "help quit", but I was still taking smoke breaks all the time. Meant I had even more nicotine than usual and was getting jumpy sometimes. 2. Nicorette can help some people quit, and I knew a few who have, but many had to keep on chewing nicorette gum for years. But it didn't really help me, as I not only ended up addicted to the nicorette, but it barely reduced my smoking, and afterwards I kept on smoking the same as before. FWIW, 5 cigarettes a day is really not that many. Not saying there are zero health risks from it, but 5 is just not that bad. Few studies can credibily say what smoking 5 of fewer cigs a day do; because smokers often underreport how much they smoke in studies. Example: Most of the people I know who claim to "only smoke half a pack a day" really smoke more like a whole pack a day, more like 20 cigarettes. Most people I know who admit to smoking "a pack a day" often times smoke more like a pack and a half a day, or closer to 30 cigarettes. This is also the case with me and I say I "only" smoke "about a pack and a half to two packs a day". Go figure. Since most smoking studies are really primarily focused on people who have smoked closer to a pack a day for 30 years or more, ie 30 pack years, and most of those people were in fact smoking mroe than they reported - there is just hardly any good studies about someone who really truely smoked just 5 cigarettes a day. Seriously, living in a more urban city with smog or ozone problems like Los Angelas or Houston, Texas can be way worse for your lungs than smoking just a few cigarettes a day. Im not saying don't quit. Try to quit if you feel like you need to quit. But just don't beat yourself up over 5 cigs a day, cause its just not worth making yourself miserable. Try the gum and see if it helps you quit. If not, the 5 cigs aren't really going to be a big deal. Answered by Larissa Perkin 1 year ago.

Nicotine Gum India Answered by Maryrose Wnuk 1 year ago.

1: It sounds more likely to be your esophagus not getting along with the juice from the gum than a heart condition. That being said nicotine is a stimulant so it could theoretically cause heart issues. THAT being said if you've been smoking for a while it seems pretty unlikely that it would cause any heart problems now unless the dose was way higher than you're used to. 2: The purpose of the gum is to keep you from going through nicotine withdrawal while you're breaking the psychological addiction to cigarettes. Even if you 'get addicted' to the gum its still a lot healthier than smoking. Bonus: if the gum doesn't work or costs too much you could try an E-cigarette. Most of them are terrible and a waste of money though. I recommend the Joye EGO. Its easy to use and lots cheaper to use than the ones that look like cigarettes. good luck! Answered by Candi Madril 1 year ago.

Best Nicotine Gum Answered by Mariah Jacquemin 1 year ago.

yes, some people do become addicted to nicotine gum. The best way to quit smoking is cold turkey. NIcotine is out of your body within just 72 hours. Using gum or patches simply prolongs the withdrawal. Answered by Josie Francke 1 year ago.

It all depends. I wish i would have just started chewing gum instead of tabacco when i was a minor. then i would have never got addicted to Grizzly, which rips the shitt out of my gums. I would still get my buzz in a safER manner too. But if you can get by on nothing props to ya man. Answered by Rudolf Sneider 1 year ago.

I'm thinking of quitting, but I want to know what to quit with. I don't want to know experiences, or anything. I want to know HOW they work and HOW they make you quit. Please and thank you. Also, if you know any services that could help me quit, that would be great. I've smoked for 13 years, time to quit. Thank you. Answered by Jeanelle Catapano 1 year ago.

(Its allot of reading but if you are dedicated to quitting you should read most of this) Nicorette patches are worn continuously for 16 hours. The nicotine in the patches is absorbed continuously from the patches, through the skin and into the bloodstream. This produces a lower amount of nicotine in the blood than smoking, but the continuous level is enough to help prevent the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that you get after you stop smoking.This is how the patches work. Nicorette gum is available in two strengths. The 2mg gum is suitable for people who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette of the day is more than 30 minutes after waking. The 4mg gum provides a larger dose of nicotine for people who are more dependent on nicotine, ie people who smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette is within 30 minutes of waking. Follow the instructions provided with the gum. This gum is not to be chewed in the same way as normal chewing gum. Instead you should chew the gum slowly, until the taste becomes strong, and then rest it between your gums and your cheek. This should be repeated every time the taste starts to fade, until the gum has lost its strength (after about half an hour). This chewing technique allows the nicotine to be absorbed into the bloodstream from the lining in your mouth. It stops the nicotine being released too quickly and being swallowed. The strength of gum and number of pieces of gum you use each day will depend on how much you used to smoke and what strength your cigarettes were. You should not use more than is recommended on the packet. When you quit smoking completely, it is recommended that you use the gum whenever you have a craving, for up to three months after stopping smoking. After this time your psychological urge to smoke should be less. You should then be able to gradually reduce the amount of gum you are using, so that you are using less and less nicotine. (It is rare to become dependent on the gum. If this happens it is much less dangerous than being dependent on cigarettes and is a much easier habit to break than smoking.) You should stop using the gum when your daily consumption is down to one or two pieces a day. If you use 4mg gum, the 2mg gum will be useful when you taper down use. If you are using the gum to help you cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, you should make a quit attempt as soon as you feel ready. This should be no later than six months after starting to cut down using the gum. Seek advice from your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you find this difficult. You should also ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you haven’t managed to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke within six weeks of starting to use the gum. Answered by Amos Nang 1 year ago.

I'm in Colorado but from my experience with colorado medicaid, It would probably require a prior authorization from the doctor. I wish you luck, quitting will save you a TON in the long run. For every pack of cigarettes you buy its going to cost you the cost of the pack plus $7 in future health care expenses. So even if you do have to save, it will SO be worth it in the long run. Call 1-800-Quitnow or check them out on the internet, I think they give away free patches. Answered by Magen Credille 1 year ago.


Why would one get addicted to Nicorette gum but never have smoked in their life?!?
I know it has nicotene in it but my reason for posting this question was more to poke fun!! It's really dumb when you actually think about it and weird!! LOL Asked by Amiee Huestis 1 year ago.

Nicorette gum actually has nicotine which is addicting, the smoker is addicted to it which is why the nicorette gum helps, it gives them the nicotine they crave which helps them quit smoking. A person that doesn't smoke isn't addicted to nicotine so it makes them addicted. Answered by Marian Haverty 1 year ago.

Many think that tobacco in cigarettes is addictive- this is false. Tobacco alone is mildly addictive in habit only. What tobacco companies do is add generous amounts of Nicotine into cigarettes to get smokers addicted to smoking. Nicotine is a chemical that causes addiction. Nicorette gum contains nicotine. So, even though you haven't smoked anything, it doesn't matter- the nicotine in the gum has you addicted to the gum. Hey, at least it's not cigarettes- Nicotine has very few side effects and you won't get lung cancer. My suggestion for becoming un-addicted? Start toning down the amount of the gum you chew very very slowly- if you chew, say 5 pieces a day, chew 5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.0 pieces a day for a week and so on. If that doesn't work, try going slower (5 pieces for 2 weeks, 4.5 for 2 weeks...) until you're done with the gum. The last part will be hard, but once you get to that point I'm sure you can do it. Answered by Trenton Langowski 1 year ago.

Because it has NICOTINE in it, hence the name 'NICORETTE' Duhhhhhhhhhhhh. Haha, I hope you know I was not being serious with that comment. I suppose, but if you aren't addicted to cigs then you shouldn't buy nicotine gum, it serves people right for paying for expensive nicorette stuff when they should just get regular wrigleys or something.

Most people I know who admit to smoking "a pack a day" often times smoke more like a pack and a half a day, or closer to 30 cigarettes. This is also the case with me and I say I "only" smoke "about a pack and a half to two packs a day". Go figure. Since most smoking studies are really primarily focused on people who have smoked closer to a pack a day for 30 years or more, ie 30 pack years, and most of those people were in fact smoking mroe than they reported - there is just hardly any good studies about someone who really truely smoked just 5 cigarettes a day. Seriously, living in a more urban city with smog or ozone problems like Los Angelas or Houston, Texas can be way worse for your lungs than smoking just a few cigarettes a day. Im not saying don't quit. Try to quit if you feel like you need to quit. But just don't beat yourself up over 5 cigs a day, cause its just not worth making yourself miserable. Try the gum and see if it helps you quit. If not, the 5 cigs aren't really going to be a big deal. Answered by Veronique Fitzgibbons 1 year ago.

Nicotine Gum India Answered by Eugena Teasdale 1 year ago.

1: It sounds more likely to be your esophagus not getting along with the juice from the gum than a heart condition. That being said nicotine is a stimulant so it could theoretically cause heart issues. THAT being said if you've been smoking for a while it seems pretty unlikely that it would cause any heart problems now unless the dose was way higher than you're used to. 2: The purpose of the gum is to keep you from going through nicotine withdrawal while you're breaking the psychological addiction to cigarettes. Even if you 'get addicted' to the gum its still a lot healthier than smoking. Bonus: if the gum doesn't work or costs too much you could try an E-cigarette. Most of them are terrible and a waste of money though. I recommend the Joye EGO. Its easy to use and lots cheaper to use than the ones that look like cigarettes. good luck!

(Its allot of reading but if you are dedicated to quitting you should read most of this) Nicorette patches are worn continuously for 16 hours. The nicotine in the patches is absorbed continuously from the patches, through the skin and into the bloodstream. This produces a lower amount of nicotine in the blood than smoking, but the continuous level is enough to help prevent the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that you get after you stop smoking.This is how the patches work. Nicorette gum is available in two strengths. The 2mg gum is suitable for people who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette of the day is more than 30 minutes after waking. The 4mg gum provides a larger dose of nicotine for people who are more dependent on nicotine, ie people who smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette is within 30 minutes of waking. Follow the instructions provided with the gum. This gum is not to be chewed in the same way as normal chewing gum. Instead you should chew the gum slowly, until the taste becomes strong, and then rest it between your gums and your cheek. This should be repeated every time the taste starts to fade, until the gum has lost its strength (after about half an hour). This chewing technique allows the nicotine to be absorbed into the bloodstream from the lining in your mouth. It stops the nicotine being released too quickly and being swallowed. The strength of gum and number of pieces of gum you use each day will depend on how much you used to smoke and what strength your cigarettes were. You should not use more than is recommended on the packet. When you quit smoking completely, it is recommended that you use the gum whenever you have a craving, for up to three months after stopping smoking. After this time your psychological urge to smoke should be less. You should then be able to gradually reduce the amount of gum you are using, so that you are using less and less nicotine. (It is rare to become dependent on the gum. If this happens it is much less dangerous than being dependent on cigarettes and is a much easier habit to break than smoking.) You should stop using the gum when your daily consumption is down to one or two pieces a day. If you use 4mg gum, the 2mg gum will be useful when you taper down use. If you are using the gum to help you cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, you should make a quit attempt as soon as you feel ready. This should be no later than six months after starting to cut down using the gum. Seek advice from your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you find this difficult. You should also ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you haven’t managed to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke within six weeks of starting to use the gum. Answered by Morris Gain 1 year ago.

I'm in Colorado but from my experience with colorado medicaid, It would probably require a prior authorization from the doctor. I wish you luck, quitting will save you a TON in the long run. For every pack of cigarettes you buy its going to cost you the cost of the pack plus $7 in future health care expenses. So even if you do have to save, it will SO be worth it in the long run.

Nicorette gum actually has nicotine which is addicting, the smoker is addicted to it which is why the nicorette gum helps, it gives them the nicotine they crave which helps them quit smoking. A person that doesn't smoke isn't addicted to nicotine so it makes them addicted. Answered by Walker Emerling 1 year ago.

Many think that tobacco in cigarettes is addictive- this is false. Tobacco alone is mildly addictive in habit only. What tobacco companies do is add generous amounts of Nicotine into cigarettes to get smokers addicted to smoking. Nicotine is a chemical that causes addiction. Nicorette gum contains nicotine. So, even though you haven't smoked anything, it doesn't matter- the nicotine in the gum has you addicted to the gum. Hey, at least it's not cigarettes- Nicotine has very few side effects and you won't get lung cancer. My suggestion for becoming un-addicted? Start toning down the amount of the gum you chew very very slowly- if you chew, say 5 pieces a day, chew 5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.0 pieces a day for a week and so on. If that doesn't work, try going slower (5 pieces for 2 weeks, 4.5 for 2 weeks...) until you're done with the gum. The last part will be hard, but once you get to that point I'm sure you can do it.

Does nicorette cause cancer?
Nicorette is a nicotine replacement remedy. But has it been shown that it can potentially be carcinogenic? I can't find any info on the packaging. Asked by Cecelia Angeles 1 year ago.

Nicorette is a branded over-the-counter palliative treatment which is used to ameliorate the withdrawal effects involved in quitting smoking. Originally available as a patch for topical application, it was later made available as a nicotine gum (composed of nicotine polacrilex) lozenge, inhaler, and nasal spray. All these products contain nicotine as the active ingredient and work by delivering this into the bloodstream. These treatments are commonly referred to as nicotine replacement therapies. Alternative brand names include Prostep®, Habitrol®, Nicotrol®, Nicoderm, and Commit®. SIDE EFFECTS: Because this gum contains nicotine, it has a peppery-like taste. It may cause a tingling sensation when chewed. During the first few days of using this medication, you may experience mouth sores, jaw muscle aches, increased saliva production, indigestion, or headache. These effects should disappear as use of the gum is continued. Chewing the gum too fast can cause lightheadedness, dizziness, hiccups, nausea, vomiting or insomnia. If these effects occur, chew the gum more slowly. Notify your doctor if you develop symptoms of too much nicotine in your body: cold sweats, fainting, confusion, pounding heart. In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

No way!!!! Nicorette does not help you lose weight. For someone who smokes and is trying to quit, nicorette is a useful tool for helping them quit. Many smokers have an oral fixation, which means they need to have something in their mouth, and when they are trying to quit, they eat to help them feel better! Nicorette helps smokers quit smoking by putting something in their mouth AND giving them a SMALL dose of nicotine to help calm cravings. It may help them not gain weight, only because they aren't eating instead of smoking! Tell your friend to STOP chewing it and putting unneeded nicotine into her body!

Nicotine Gum India Answered by Clarita Behunin 1 year ago.

1: It sounds more likely to be your esophagus not getting along with the juice from the gum than a heart condition. That being said nicotine is a stimulant so it could theoretically cause heart issues. THAT being said if you've been smoking for a while it seems pretty unlikely that it would cause any heart problems now unless the dose was way higher than you're used to. 2: The purpose of the gum is to keep you from going through nicotine withdrawal while you're breaking the psychological addiction to cigarettes. Even if you 'get addicted' to the gum its still a lot healthier than smoking. Bonus: if the gum doesn't work or costs too much you could try an E-cigarette. Most of them are terrible and a waste of money though. I recommend the Joye EGO. Its easy to use and lots cheaper to use than the ones that look like cigarettes. good luck!

(Its allot of reading but if you are dedicated to quitting you should read most of this) Nicorette patches are worn continuously for 16 hours. The nicotine in the patches is absorbed continuously from the patches, through the skin and into the bloodstream. This produces a lower amount of nicotine in the blood than smoking, but the continuous level is enough to help prevent the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that you get after you stop smoking.This is how the patches work. Nicorette gum is available in two strengths. The 2mg gum is suitable for people who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette of the day is more than 30 minutes after waking. The 4mg gum provides a larger dose of nicotine for people who are more dependent on nicotine, ie people who smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette is within 30 minutes of waking. Follow the instructions provided with the gum. This gum is not to be chewed in the same way as normal chewing gum. Instead you should chew the gum slowly, until the taste becomes strong, and then rest it between your gums and your cheek. This should be repeated every time the taste starts to fade, until the gum has lost its strength (after about half an hour). This chewing technique allows the nicotine to be absorbed into the bloodstream from the lining in your mouth. It stops the nicotine being released too quickly and being swallowed. The strength of gum and number of pieces of gum you use each day will depend on how much you used to smoke and what strength your cigarettes were. You should not use more than is recommended on the packet. When you quit smoking completely, it is recommended that you use the gum whenever you have a craving, for up to three months after stopping smoking. After this time your psychological urge to smoke should be less. You should then be able to gradually reduce the amount of gum you are using, so that you are using less and less nicotine. (It is rare to become dependent on the gum. If this happens it is much less dangerous than being dependent on cigarettes and is a much easier habit to break than smoking.) You should stop using the gum when your daily consumption is down to one or two pieces a day. If you use 4mg gum, the 2mg gum will be useful when you taper down use. If you are using the gum to help you cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, you should make a quit attempt as soon as you feel ready. This should be no later than six months after starting to cut down using the gum. Seek advice from your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you find this difficult. You should also ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you haven’t managed to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke within six weeks of starting to use the gum. Answered by Harris Landkamer 1 year ago.

I'm in Colorado but from my experience with colorado medicaid, It would probably require a prior authorization from the doctor. I wish you luck, quitting will save you a TON in the long run. For every pack of cigarettes you buy its going to cost you the cost of the pack plus $7 in future health care expenses. So even if you do have to save, it will SO be worth it in the long run.

Why would one get addicted to Nicorette gum but never have smoked in their life?!?
I know it has nicotene in it but my reason for posting this question was more to poke fun!! It's really dumb when you actually think about it and weird!! LOL Asked by Allegra Gradillas 1 year ago.

Nicorette gum actually has nicotine which is addicting, the smoker is addicted to it which is why the nicorette gum helps, it gives them the nicotine they crave which helps them quit smoking. A person that doesn't smoke isn't addicted to nicotine so it makes them addicted. Answered by Amy Ransler 1 year ago.

Many think that tobacco in cigarettes is addictive- this is false. Tobacco alone is mildly addictive in habit only. What tobacco companies do is add generous amounts of Nicotine into cigarettes to get smokers addicted to smoking. Nicotine is a chemical that causes addiction. Nicorette gum contains nicotine. So, even though you haven't smoked anything, it doesn't matter- the nicotine in the gum has you addicted to the gum. Hey, at least it's not cigarettes- Nicotine has very few side effects and you won't get lung cancer. My suggestion for becoming un-addicted? Start toning down the amount of the gum you chew very very slowly- if you chew, say 5 pieces a day, chew 5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.0 pieces a day for a week and so on. If that doesn't work, try going slower (5 pieces for 2 weeks, 4.5 for 2 weeks...) until you're done with the gum. The last part will be hard, but once you get to that point I'm sure you can do it.

Does nicorette cause cancer?
Nicorette is a nicotine replacement remedy. But has it been shown that it can potentially be carcinogenic? I can't find any info on the packaging. Asked by Leon Bavard 1 year ago.

Nicorette is a branded over-the-counter palliative treatment which is used to ameliorate the withdrawal effects involved in quitting smoking. Originally available as a patch for topical application, it was later made available as a nicotine gum (composed of nicotine polacrilex) lozenge, inhaler, and nasal spray. All these products contain nicotine as the active ingredient and work by delivering this into the bloodstream. These treatments are commonly referred to as nicotine replacement therapies. Alternative brand names include Prostep®, Habitrol®, Nicotrol®, Nicoderm, and Commit®. SIDE EFFECTS: Because this gum contains nicotine, it has a peppery-like taste. It may cause a tingling sensation when chewed. During the first few days of using this medication, you may experience mouth sores, jaw muscle aches, increased saliva production, indigestion, or headache. These effects should disappear as use of the gum is continued. Chewing the gum too fast can cause lightheadedness, dizziness, hiccups, nausea, vomiting or insomnia. If these effects occur, chew the gum more slowly. Notify your doctor if you develop symptoms of too much nicotine in your body: cold sweats, fainting, confusion, pounding heart. In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

No way!!!! Nicorette does not help you lose weight. For someone who smokes and is trying to quit, nicorette is a useful tool for helping them quit. Many smokers have an oral fixation, which means they need to have something in their mouth, and when they are trying to quit, they eat to help them feel better! Nicorette helps smokers quit smoking by putting something in their mouth AND giving them a SMALL dose of nicotine to help calm cravings. It may help them not gain weight, only because they aren't eating instead of smoking! Tell your friend to STOP chewing it and putting unneeded nicotine into her body!

I used to chew nicorette to "help quit", but I was still taking smoke breaks all the time. Meant I had even more nicotine than usual and was getting jumpy sometimes. 2. Nicorette can help some people quit, and I knew a few who have, but many had to keep on chewing nicorette gum for years.

FWIW, 5 cigarettes a day is really not that many. Not saying there are zero health risks from it, but 5 is just not that bad. Few studies can credibily say what smoking 5 of fewer cigs a day do; because smokers often underreport how much they smoke in studies. Example: Most of the people I know who claim to "only smoke half a pack a day" really smoke more like a whole pack a day, more like 20 cigarettes. Most people I know who admit to smoking "a pack a day" often times smoke more like a pack and a half a day, or closer to 30 cigarettes. This is also the case with me and I say I "only" smoke "about a pack and a half to two packs a day". Go figure. Since most smoking studies are really primarily focused on people who have smoked closer to a pack a day for 30 years or more, ie 30 pack years, and most of those people were in fact smoking mroe than they reported - there is just hardly any good studies about someone who really truely smoked just 5 cigarettes a day.

Most of them are terrible and a waste of money though. I recommend the Joye EGO. Its easy to use and lots cheaper to use than the ones that look like cigarettes. good luck!

Best Nicotine Gum Answered by Loma Hodak 1 year ago.

yes, some people do become addicted to nicotine gum. The best way to quit smoking is cold turkey. NIcotine is out of your body within just 72 hours. Using gum or patches simply prolongs the withdrawal. Answered by Crissy Polton 1 year ago.

It all depends. I wish i would have just started chewing gum instead of tabacco when i was a minor. then i would have never got addicted to Grizzly, which rips the shitt out of my gums. I would still get my buzz in a safER manner too. But if you can get by on nothing props to ya man. Answered by Charla Franco 1 year ago.

(Its allot of reading but if you are dedicated to quitting you should read most of this) Nicorette patches are worn continuously for 16 hours. The nicotine in the patches is absorbed continuously from the patches, through the skin and into the bloodstream. This produces a lower amount of nicotine in the blood than smoking, but the continuous level is enough to help prevent the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that you get after you stop smoking.This is how the patches work. Nicorette gum is available in two strengths. The 2mg gum is suitable for people who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette of the day is more than 30 minutes after waking. The 4mg gum provides a larger dose of nicotine for people who are more dependent on nicotine, ie people who smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, or whose first cigarette is within 30 minutes of waking. Follow the instructions provided with the gum. This gum is not to be chewed in the same way as normal chewing gum. Instead you should chew the gum slowly, until the taste becomes strong, and then rest it between your gums and your cheek. This should be repeated every time the taste starts to fade, until the gum has lost its strength (after about half an hour). This chewing technique allows the nicotine to be absorbed into the bloodstream from the lining in your mouth. It stops the nicotine being released too quickly and being swallowed. The strength of gum and number of pieces of gum you use each day will depend on how much you used to smoke and what strength your cigarettes were. You should not use more than is recommended on the packet. When you quit smoking completely, it is recommended that you use the gum whenever you have a craving, for up to three months after stopping smoking. After this time your psychological urge to smoke should be less. You should then be able to gradually reduce the amount of gum you are using, so that you are using less and less nicotine. (It is rare to become dependent on the gum. If this happens it is much less dangerous than being dependent on cigarettes and is a much easier habit to break than smoking.) You should stop using the gum when your daily consumption is down to one or two pieces a day. If you use 4mg gum, the 2mg gum will be useful when you taper down use. If you are using the gum to help you cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, you should make a quit attempt as soon as you feel ready. This should be no later than six months after starting to cut down using the gum. Seek advice from your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you find this difficult. You should also ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you haven’t managed to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke within six weeks of starting to use the gum.

I'm in Colorado but from my experience with colorado medicaid, It would probably require a prior authorization from the doctor. I wish you luck, quitting will save you a TON in the long run. For every pack of cigarettes you buy its going to cost you the cost of the pack plus $7 in future health care expenses. So even if you do have to save, it will SO be worth it in the long run. Call 1-800-Quitnow or check them out on the internet, I think they give away free patches. Answered by Aracelis Hodan 1 year ago.


Why would one get addicted to Nicorette gum but never have smoked in their life?!?
I know it has nicotene in it but my reason for posting this question was more to poke fun!! It's really dumb when you actually think about it and weird!! LOL Asked by Silva Saxbury 1 year ago.

Nicorette gum actually has nicotine which is addicting, the smoker is addicted to it which is why the nicorette gum helps, it gives them the nicotine they crave which helps them quit smoking. A person that doesn't smoke isn't addicted to nicotine so it makes them addicted. Answered by Lucie Youkers 1 year ago.

Many think that tobacco in cigarettes is addictive- this is false. Tobacco alone is mildly addictive in habit only. What tobacco companies do is add generous amounts of Nicotine into cigarettes to get smokers addicted to smoking. Nicotine is a chemical that causes addiction. Nicorette gum contains nicotine. So, even though you haven't smoked anything, it doesn't matter- the nicotine in the gum has you addicted to the gum. Hey, at least it's not cigarettes- Nicotine has very few side effects and you won't get lung cancer. My suggestion for becoming un-addicted? Start toning down the amount of the gum you chew very very slowly- if you chew, say 5 pieces a day, chew 5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.5 pieces a day for a week, then 4.0 pieces a day for a week and so on. If that doesn't work, try going slower (5 pieces for 2 weeks, 4.5 for 2 weeks...) until you're done with the gum. The last part will be hard, but once you get to that point I'm sure you can do it. Answered by Fairy Stehle 1 year ago.

Because it has NICOTINE in it, hence the name 'NICORETTE' Duhhhhhhhhhhhh. Haha, I hope you know I was not being serious with that comment. I suppose, but if you aren't addicted to cigs then you shouldn't buy nicotine gum, it serves people right for paying for expensive nicorette stuff when they should just get regular wrigleys or something.
