Many people use quit smoking medications to help reduce withdrawal feelings and cigarette cravings. These medications can double your chances of quitting for good.

NRT reduces withdrawal feelings by giving you a small controlled amount of nicotine─but none of the other dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes. This small amount of nicotine helps satisfy your craving for nicotine and reduces the urge to smoke.
