Habitrol is intended to help you, the smoker, to quit smoking. Habitrol gum helps you to concentrate on breaking the habit of smoking by reducing the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal effects you normally experience when you stop smoking. Once you can break the smoking habit it is usually not difficult to give up Habitrol.
Dependence on nicotine occurs as a result of the smoking habit, during which the body becomes accustomed to receiving nicotine every time you light up a cigarette. When you try to quit smoking, it is this dependence on nicotine that often holds you back. The unpleasant symptoms of nicotine withdrawal often provide an excuse to begin smoking again and in doing so you are effectively mortgaging your future just to avoid the unpleasant experience of trying to break from smoking. Don’t let yourself rationalise the risk of illness or death that smoking represents
Habitrol Gum helps you give up smoking by alleviating the unpleasant symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal. These symptoms can include headaches, sweating, irritability, anxiety and mood swings. They are often a disincentive to quit smoking. When you chew Habitrol Gum, small amounts of nicotine become released and are absorbed through the lining of the mouth. This provides the smoker with a controlled way to satisfy the body's craving for nicotine.
Habitrol Gum provides a flexible, convenient course of treatment for smokers who want to quit. Each pack contains 96 pieces of gum. It comes in either 2mg or 4mg strength in both mint or fruit flavour. Follow the recommended chewing technique of chewing and 'parking' the gum in the side of the mouth to ensure its efficiency. If you have decided to kick the smoking habit once and for all, then Habitrol Gum is the product that can make your non-smoking dream a reality.
As a form of NRT, Habitrol gum helps you overcome your current dependence on nicotine
Some History about Nicotine Gum
During the 1960’s it was discovered that smokers among the submarine crew of the Swedish Royal Navy were short-tempered and distracted because there was a smoking ban on board the submarines. The smokers were suffering from nicotine withdrawal.
The Swedish government approached a Swedish pharmaceutical company and asked them for their help. In 1967 Ove Fernö, a researcher, developed a product that could ease these withdrawal symptoms and help them quit. Nicotine gum is what he came up with and from there many types of Nicotine replacement therapy have been developed.
Habitrol gum is exactly the same product as Nicotinell gum and is produced by the same manufacturer so you can be sure that it shares the same high production standards as the original product. Habitrol gum represents excellent quality at a lower price than Nicotinell gum.
|Active Ingredient||Each chewing piece contains 4mg of nicotine|
|Dosage||Adult daily dose: 8 - 12 pieces. Maximum daily dose: 15 pieces.
When you have completely overcome your desire for smoking, gradually reduce the number of pieces chewed each day. Do not attempt to stop using Habitrol completely until you are satisfied with only one or two pieces a day. It is recommended that Habitrol be used for three months before this gradual reduction is started. It is during the first three months that the risk of failure is greatest. Remember to carry some Habitrol with you after you have stopped smoking in case you feel a sudden urge to smoke again.
|Warning||Not suitable for children. Do not use Habitrol gum if you are pregnant or intend to become pregnant; if you are breastfeeding; if you have had a recent heart attack or stroke; if you have heart disease or palpitations or angina; if you are a non-smoker; if you are under 18 years old or if you are allergic to nicotine or the components of the chewing gum. Dispose of the used gum carefully as it toxic to family pets.|
