Is Nicotine Replacement Therapy Right For You?

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

Nicotine is an addictive drug, but some people are more strongly dependent than others. Answering the questions below will help you determine how physically dependent you are on nicotine and help you decide whether the nicotine gum or patch may be right for you.

Do you need to smoke in the first half hour after you wake up?

Do you get a strong, gnawing hunger for a cigarette if you have not smoked for a while?

If you answered, “yes” to both of the above questions, then you may be quite addicted. But, that does not mean you will find it any harder to quit than others. If you are worried about being able to stay quit because of these symptoms, you may want to talk with your doctor.
