Nicotine is very addictive and difficult to quit. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) includes products like gum, patches, nasal spray, inhalers, and lozenges. Science has shown that NRT reduces the urge to use tobacco and helps with nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Using NRT can increase a person’s chances of successfully quitting by 50-70%.1
Ask your pharmacist about getting medication to quit smoking. It’s quick. It’s easy.
