How will Nicorette Lozenges help me to quit smoking?
Nicorette Lozenges are a form or NRT treatment, which means that they replace the nicotine that you would usually get from cigarettes. Each lozenge contains 2mg of nicotine, which helps to ease withdrawal so your cravings will subside, making it easier to quit smoking for good.
Why do I crave cigarettes?
When you smoke, your body becomes dependent on the nicotine which is contained in cigarettes. When you try to quit smoking, your body begins to crave nicotine, which causes unwanted symptoms and makes you want to smoke. This is why some people turn to NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy), which gives your body the nicotine it craves, helping to ease your cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
