Nicotine replacement therapy - how does it work and how effective is it?

Can NRT help me stop smoking?

Dr Zenon Andreou

"NRT is intended to wean you off of cigarettes, not to replace smoking on a long term basis."

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) can be useful if you want to give up smoking but are finding nicotine cravings or nicotine withdrawal hard to resist. Some people also use NRT products before they start a serious quit attempt, to reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke and make giving up easier.
