  • Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help you stop smoking

    NRT can help you to stop smoking. It gives you a low level of nicotine, without the tar, carbon monoxide and other poisonous chemicals present in tobacco.

  • Choosing the right type of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)

    When choosing a type of NRT, think about which method best suits you and your pattern of smoking. Is it nicotine patches, nicotine gum or nicotine mouth spray?

  • Nicotine patches

    ​Nicotine patches give a dose of nicotine through your skin. You don't need a prescription for them. If you have a medical card, you can get them for free.

  • Nicotine gum

    Nicotine gum gives you a dose of nicotine as you chew. It also gives your mouth something to do instead of smoking, which can help you break the habit.

  • Nicotine inhaler (or inhalator)

    Nicotine inhalers are useful if you're missing the routine of smoking cigarettes and the puffing sensation. They can help replace the physical act of smoking.

  • Nicotine lozenges

    Nicotine lozenges are a flavoured, sweet-like form of nicotine replacement therapy. They come in different strengths and work in a similar way to nicotine gum.

  • Nicotine mouth spray

    A nicotine mouth spray quickly releases nicotine into your body. Use 1 to 2 sprays when you feel the urge to smoke. Each spray provides a 1mg dose of nicotine.
