Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) delivers nicotine without the harmful chemicals such as carbon monoxide or tar from cigarettes and can help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
The patch, mouthspray, lozenge, gum and inhalator are available from Quit4Life and you will start using the products on your agreed quit date.
Your adviser can supply NRT weekly for up to 12 weeks for just one prescription charge (free if you are exempt from prescription charges), provided you remain smokefree.
Other NRT products, such as the mouth strip, if preferred, can be requested on prescription from your GP.
It has been found that a combination of two NRT products used together (eg a patch and inhalator) can be effective when one was not. So if you have not managed to quit before on one product it doesn’t mean NRT is the wrong choice for you.
