REST BETWEEN
CHEEK AND GUMS

CHEWING ROUTINE
FOR ABOUT 30
MINUTES

There's a simple four step approach for using Nicotinell® gum:

  1. Keep chewing the gum until you begin to taste a strong flavour of nicotine.
  2. Rest the gum between your cheek and gums and keep it there until the taste starts to fade.
  3. Start chewing the gum again.
  4. Repeat this chewing routine for approximately 30 minutes.

Chewing properly is vital when it comes to Nicotinell® Gum. The illustration shows how to do this. Remember, taking breaks between chewing is essential. If more nicotine is released than your mouth is able to absorb, you’ll end up swallowing it and not feeling the effects. Please read the leaflet enclosed in the pack and make sure you follow the instructions carefully.

There’s also different doses to consider so that the gum best meets your needs. If you are a light smoker who has fewer than 20 cigarettes a day, you should opt for 2mg of gum. However, heavy smokers who have over 30 cigarettes per day should choose 4mg of gum.
