Quit Your Way...

Nicotine Gum

You are 1½ times more likely to quit successfully if you use nicotine gum*

What the nicotine gum does for you
Nicotine gum is your secret weapon for taking the edge off of cravings. You can give your body the dose of nicotine it's craving with nicotine gum.

How to use it
Nicotine gum is not really gum! Here's the RIGHT WAY to use nicotine gum: chew it 2-3 times, and then park it between your cheek and gum.

The gum is available in 2mg and 4mg strengths, with fun flavours like: fresh mint, orange and fruity. Ask a doctor or pharmacist to help you figure out which dosage is best for you. Follow the dose and frequency they recommend! Seriously!

Where to get it
Nicotine gum is available without a prescription. Buy it at any drug store. (Check with your campus health clinic for free samples).

What they cost
The cost is about $15 for 30 pieces or $36 for 105 pieces.
