Nicotac nicotine gum can help provide relief from nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and nervousness, as well as the craving for nicotine you used to satisfy by having a cigarette.
Nicotac does contain nicotine. The purpose of Nicotac is to provide you with enough nicotine to help control the physical nicotine withdrawal symptoms so you can deal with the mental aspects of quitting. During the 12-week nicotine replacement therapy program, you will gradually reduce your nicotine intake by switching to fewer pieces of nicotine gum each day.
For most adults, the amount of nicotine in the gum is less than from smoking. Some people will be sensitive to even this amount of nicotine and should not use this product without advice from their doctor.

Using Nicotac nicotine gum is only a short-term cost, while the cost of smoking is a long-term cost because of the health problems smoking causes.
Discard your cigarettes, forgive yourself, and then get back on track. Don't consider yourself a failure or punish yourself. In fact, people who have already tried to quit are more likely to be successful the next time.
Pieces of Nicotac may have enough nicotine to make children and pets sick. Wrap used pieces of gum in paper and throw away in the trash. In case of overdose, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.
