Quitting is hard enough without going cold turkey. When you use a combination of counseling and medication to manage your withdrawal symptoms, you can more than double your chances of success. NRTs are medications you can take to help lessen your urge to use tobacco. They give you a small amount of nicotine to help your body slowly and safely adjust to a tobacco-free life.
Research shows that NRT works. As with any medication, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, consult your doctor before using. You can choose which forms you like best. Some NRT products work better than others for some people, while some people might prefer certain NRT products instead of others.
Through Quit With Us, Louisiana, participants can get free shipments of patches, gum or lozenges.
Ask your doctor what medicine is right for you.
