Nicorette Chewing Gum is a therapeutic agent intended to help smokers break the psychological habit of smoking by reducing the nicotine withdrawal symptoms normally experienced when stopping smoking. As the absorption of nicotine from Nicorette Nicotine Chewing Gum differs from that of a cigarette, the same satisfaction as that obtained from a cigarette will not be achieved. Therefore, once the psychological part of the smoking dependence has been overcome, Nicorette Chewing Gum is usually not difficult to give up.
