Things To Keep In Mind About Nicotine Replacement Therapy

Oct 25, 2013 | Posted in Step 2: Planning To Quit?

For nicotine replacements to work, they must be used exactly as directed. They can be dangerous if you use them and continue to smoke. Remember that nicotine is an addictive poison. The only reason you are using it to stop smoking is so that you can control and reduce the amounts of nicotine your body takes in and eventually end your addiction to it.

Nothing you do in a carefully monitored program of nicotine replacement therapy is going to be worse for your health than just continuing to smoke.

Nicotine replacements help only with the physical withdrawal. They do not keep you from missing cigarettes. You still have to control your habit. This is why NRT works best when it is used along with another approach, such as a smoking cessation program or a support group.
