... I thought I'd let you know that I went off the lozenges "cold turkey" yesterday. I finally found some info on nicotine and with my new cholesterol problem, it convinced me to get off of it. Just like smoking, I felt that I had completely run out of time to enjoy these things. ... (20 replies)
... Yep, I think any NRT can be addictive, because nicotine iIS such a powerful, addictive drug, but I do think in the form of GUM and maybe LONGEZES it's probably more so. That's just my opin as I have used both the gum and patches. ... (20 replies)

... would post back and let us know how he's doing, now. I do sympathize tho, as I know it's addictive, alright.

Nicotine inhaler
Apr 23, 2007
... about becoming addicted to that instead of cigarettes. I know it's safer but it isn't designed for long term use.

... Well, I should've stayed on the patch, because I'm sure I was getting close to the day I could have easily just gone off of that little 7 mg patch. ... (6 replies)
... That was a very nice, and interesting email, thank you! I'm not really going back and forth between patch and gum's just all GUM...and to tell you the truth, I'm so sick of it. I think had I stayed on the patch, I would've got off of it long ago. ... (20 replies)
... The first time I quit smoking I used just regular Dentene gum and I was able to quit the smokes but I got hooked on the gum. I would go nuts if I ran out of gum at night...sometimes had to go to the store just to get gum. ... (20 replies)

... and there are other products available. It just depends on which one it more suitable for you. Be careful though because in research it shows that the gum is addictive.
