When you have struggled to kick the smoking habit, and you are desperate to find a way to make it easier, you should consider using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help. You can use various tools, and it is worth booking an appointment with your doctor to discuss their pros and cons. Using an NRT can help you stop smoking and inhaling the thousands of toxic chemicals from cigarette smoke and slowly reduce your dependency on nicotine. Below are some NRTs you can consider trying to help you quit smoking that can lead to you living a smoke-free life.
A popular NRT for many people is nicotine patches, which are discreet to use and an effective way of controlling nicotine cravings. You wear a patch on any part of your skin, and over 24 hours, it releases nicotine to help keep a constant level in your system and keep cravings at bay. The patches are available in different nicotine strengths, so you can reduce the dose and wean yourself off nicotine, and millions worldwide have used this NRT to help them quit smoking successfully.
Another massively popular NRT that millions use worldwide is vaping devices, and many different types are available. It can be daunting when you are new to vaping, looking at the extensive selection of vaping devices you can use, and before you invest too much money, you want to ensure it is a suitable NRT for you and you can stick to using it. An excellent introduction to vaping is using disposable vapes that are available in various flavours and are simple to use. You do not need to buy anything extra, and when it is finished after about 600 puffs, you replace it with a new one, which will cost less than £6.
You can choose nicotine lozenges to help you quit smoking, similar to hard-boiled sweets you suck. When you feel the urge to smoke getting stronger, you put a nicotine lozenge in your mouth and suck on it till it is gone, without chewing it. It can take up to 30 minutes to finish, and it will help keep your nicotine cravings under control and allow you to carry on with things without wanting a cigarette. Nicotine lozenges are available in different flavours and can be an excellent tool to help you quit smoking.
Oral Nicotine Spray
Another option is to use an oral nicotine spray, which is an effective way to control nicotine cravings and help you quit smoking cigarettes. The pump-action bottle is filled with liquid nicotine that you spray into your mouth when you feel a craving increasing in strength. Your body absorbs the nicotine in the spray and reduces the cravings so you can easily manage them. Limited flavour options are available, but you can get the spray in different nicotine strengths so you can wean yourself off nicotine.
Make an appointment with your doctor and discuss the various NRTs, including the ones above, and it can be the first step in living your life without being a smoker.
